  • Summary: Gallop Racer 2006 is set in a horse racing theme park called Gallop Racing Square, with five attractions that you can freely select between. Title Collection has you select a horse, either a real life stallion or one that you've created, and follow it from early races until retirement. Gallop Stallion is the game's horse creation mode. Memorial Quest allows players to relive the experience of 100 classic races. Hall of Fame is an expansion of Memorial Quest mode, featuring fifty races. Finally, Field of Legend is an attraction where you race a horse that you created in Gallop Stallion mode against real life horses. Expand

  1. This is not a title to sit down and play five minutes worth before you run out for errands. But if you devote some time to learning about horses and the racing itself, Gallop Racer 2006 is surprisingly rewarding.
  2. 85
    For fans of horses, racing, stats, or high functioning autistics this title stocks plenty to do. Tack on decent graphics and challenging (but not impossible) learning curve and you've got one satisfying niche title and a surprisingly great and wicked way to get your pony fix.
  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.
  4. GR06 may be tough, but its thoroughness should be appreciated. [July 2006, p.78]
  5. For long time horse racing fans, Gallop Racer 2006 brings some great improvements in both the racing and breeding aspects above previous versions. [July 2006, p.72]
  6. If you already like the series, not enough has changed to stop you from enjoying it. And that's exactly the reason why new players may as well just stay away. [July 2006, p.106]
  7. 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.
