  • Summary: Some of Barbie's wild horses are missing from her stable, and you must help her find them. Choose your horse, riding tack, and Barbie's outfit, and then ride through the beautiful countryside. You can even help Barbie dismount her horse and explore trails on foot. Your adventure, however, is not without dangers, as you must jump over fallen trees, cross rickety bridges, and avoid other obstacles. After you chase the horses, lasso them, and return them to safety, you can challenge your friend to race. Expand

  1. It is true that there are some gameplay redundancies and a healthy amount of character interaction issues, but will a kid point to mommy and say “look at all of the clipping issues!”, or “look at all of the horseys!”?
  2. The game features enough levels and unlockable extras to keep the player engrossed for a long time; so Barbie and horse fans alike - male and female, young and old - will all get something out of this.
  3. Riding feels "real"... In short, Barbie's first foray onto Xbox is not a stinker. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.100]

    I couldn't bring myself to dislike this game, and even had more fun with it than certain other Xbox games of the recent past. And if I liked it, even a little bit, who knows if it won't be an even bigger hit with the people it was meant for?
  5. Okay, I know what many of you are sitting there reading this wondering. Why would an adult male play a game like this? Well I did it for you!

    If you want to buy a game for a young girl and she's nuts for Barbie, and I mean absolutely nuts, then this might be a way to keep her quiet for a few hours.

    Okay, so I bought this game for my neighbour's daughter and I just wanted to try and see if it works. I got hooked up on it, missed 2 years of college, few funerals, births and Champions League finals and I don't even care. Those horses are so damn cute, I just wanna sunggle with'em. Definitely better than Black Ops 2, I reccomend this to all hardcore gamers. THEHOOD! Collapse

    It is alright, but it is a short game. It is fun for people who like horses! You have to rescue all the foals before you can go to the final level!

    My four year old loves it and has learned how to use the controls very well. It is the best game for little ones that I could find.

    I am totally loving the game! I mean, alright, you can't buck barbie off the horse, but other than that the game is awsome! My best friend and I love horses (And MABEY we like barbie just a little...) so when we saw this game we just knew we had to have it! I so love this game! The grafics are great! Everyone, young and old, can accually feel as if they own a horse with this game. My friend and I used to play with toy horses when we were younger, but now we've grown out of it (But not too much!) so we've turned to simulated horse games, and we couldn't be happy'er! We've been sending in some ideas to the makers for a new game like this, and we're keeping our fingers crossed that they exept! Horses biggest fan, Laura! Expand

    I am surprised that everybody here is defending a game that has been called one of the worst games ever but I'm more surprised that most girl gamers are commenting on the Xbox version seen as the main Xbox game is Halo. I know most girl gamers who'd rather play Zelda or Final Fantasy, but if any of you don't want to play an RPG than you may be better off with Metroid Prime or Tomb Raider, however I play those games a lot as well so if you don't want a guy game then you may as well get this Barbie game that came from the tenth level of Hell, after that you should get your head examined.
