  1. I continue to be hooked on Gallop Racer for one simple thing, it’s depth.
  2. The multiplayer aspect of GP 2004 is an absolute blast. There’s nothing like the excitement and tension of racing against a human player when you round that final turn, neck and neck, frantically fighting the urge to not make your move too soon, especially if your foe begins to pull away.

  4. Remember, this is not an arcade experience. This game is more for serious sim lovers of an equine bent. If you’ve ever played (and liked) any games of this series, you’ll probably like this latest version and its requisite additional bells and whistles.
  5. It may be horseracing, but Gallop Racer once again proves to be a surprisingly irresistible and incredibly deep play. [Oct 2004, p.134]
  6. You can play until you achieve a perfect stable and set some insanely incredibly record. If you are a horse fan, this may be the best game available at this time.
  7. While multiplayer is a nice addition, it really pays to have friends who actually enjoy the game’s delicacies. Otherwise, they’ll likely be turned off by the whole thing.
