  1. The definitive horse game out there, not that that's a hard claim considering the competition. Still, those with a love of equine action will be more than happy with what it offers. [Feb 2008, p.86]
  2. The controls are definitely hard to grasp at first, but if you can overcome those, then you'll have a great time playing this equestrian game.

    Admittedly, the Wii-mote motion control of your horse's reins is fun and we were surprised at how it held our attention. As far as horse games go, My Horse and Me is a thoroughbred.
  4. 45
    It barely even acknowledges we're playing, so there's no encouragement to put up with its poor design and ugly visuals.
  5. There’s just not enough redeeming qualities in horse-riding to keep me interested in it long enough.
  6. So, if you are really desperate for that horse riding experience that so many games haven’t delivered, then I’m sure all three of you will find happiness with this title. For the rest of you, please just stay away.
  7. My Horse & Me is shovel-ware, pure and simple. It looks ugly, its gameplay is limited, and its primary features—show jumping and item-collecting—bear little resemblance to its target audience.

    Although the graphics are better than any horse game i`ve previously played, its gets very boring, very fast. There is more to horse ridingAlthough the graphics are better than any horse game i`ve previously played, its gets very boring, very fast. There is more to horse riding than just show jumping. It would have been MUCH better if they had included dressage, cross country, 3 day eventing, or western events in here. Its very easy to beat & isn`t exactly entertaining. There is also no time to spend with your horse, other than grooming it, which is very boring. It would have been nice to have a trail ride option or a ride for fun, without the confinement of a fence (like in the free ride thats in the game now) all in all, it was a good game, entertaining for a short amount of time, but besides the good graphics, it didn`t have much to offer Collapse
