    This is a great addition to the Gallop Racer series! I loved being able to make my own horses and race them. When I say make, I don't mean breed either, I mean you can go into the Free Mode and pick your horses color, sillks, markings, tack, body type, running style, and give make it as good or bad as you want, along with giving the abilities YOU want it to have!

    This game is great! I know a lot about horse racing and this game didn't have one thing wrong with it. The graphics are really nice and season mode is incredible! It's worth every penny!

    I'm new to GR. After playing BCC I like GR for the most part, but there are a few things I would change. I dont like the fact that you can only race one horse at a time. Once you pick a MyHorse to race you are stuck with it until it wins so many races. I do like the breeding aspect of the game, trying to find the perfect combo.

  1. Gallop Racer 2006 would be more fun if its presentation weren't so overwhelmingly confusing and its races so surprisingly difficult: it's a nasty combo.
  2. At the end of the day, though, you're still going to have to have a real interest in the sport.
  3. The new design segments game play dramatically, but the core excitement of horse racing is brought across more than ever in Gallop Racer 2006.
