I think it's time EASports brought out a proper Horse Racing game really. Trainers, jockeys etc. Obviously with the Cheltenham Festival, Punchestown, Aintree etc included.
Definitely a market for it.
Not a badly animated thing. A professional approach with top graphics is well within range for EA Sports.
Would be fantastic to train horses and aim them at specific festivals. Ride them over jumps at Cheltenham or on the flat at Newmarket etc.
Could see the game being huge.
YOU HAVE TO DO THIS.
Thank you for getting back to me.
It's disappointing to see that Horse Racing is overlooked every year. It's hugely popular worldwide. The Cheltenham Festival alone draws 250000 people a year. Japan Cup, Kentucky Derby, Epsom Derby, Grand National. All in different countries, all draw 100's of thousands every year to either a 1-3 day event.
Having the ability to train horses for certain meetings, on the flat and jumps and riding them at the biggest festivals would appeal to so many people worldwide I think. Getting a lower rated horse running in the week to eventually win a big race on a Saturday etc. So many ways in which the game could be so popular.
If the graphics were good which I magine they would be with EA Sports, if the pre-race and post-race setup was correct, analysis of who might win etc (Like Racing UK do for example). I think it could be a massive hit across the world.
Please please do pass it on.
I completely agree with this!!! The market is there, the demand is there. How many people forked out for Phar Lap when it was exactly the same as a game made on the iPhone? There is no competition out there, and I know several people who want this to happen too. Please EA make this happen!!!
