Anyone here play this game?
Hello to All.. Ive been reading up on all your posts for some tips. I was a superb veteran in the Gallop Racer series. Gallop Racer 2004is still one of my favorite games.Im new to the G1 Jockey series. I like how its more in depth and realistic.. . Very Difficult. Even on Easy im having a hard time. I have placed third a couple times.. then last.. never won a race yet. I just got the game a couple days ago and im already addicted. I had to order it from overseasThe training is really hard as well, i havent looked too deep into it yet. I trieda training exercise to keep thetime close foreach distance 15-14-14-13 etc and did horrible.If anyone has any pointers i would really appreciate it, on the gameplay or training/workouts. Thanks
The best tip i can give you is keep racing..
Don't be hard on yourself, just enjoy.
Working out the timing to drive your horse is very important.
Try to ride the horse where it likes to be ridden.
Once you have 200+ rides under your belt, you'll have more specific questions for sure.
Im nearly through 5 seasons (2300+ rides) on HARD and winning 70%. (Guru!!!)
Anyone know if there are any other horse racing games besides this one that is in english?
Im from Australia !!
There's one called Melbourne Cup (our biggest race) (Ps2 Only i think)
Don't want to buy it though, G1 Jockey is too good!!
Yeah, If I were a video game designer I would make one with different racetracks from different countrys like U.S.A, Austrailia, Dubai, Singapore and others and it would consist of the player setting up his/her own stable in whatever location they wanted then of course you would start out as the trainer of your stable, then either become a jockey yourself or you can hire a jockey(s) and hire staff, that is how I would make it, but I am not a game designer so all I can do is dream.
bought this game about a week ago. have read your posts so far but this game is too dam hard and im about to give up and throw it away. HEEEEEEEEEEEEELP. cant come anywhere than last place. Playing it on normal at the minute.
Ok so i have now tried it on easy and have won a race thank god. why is it so dam hard on normal?
My horse always runs out of steam too early. whats the best way to keep it running fast after all the potential has run out? i have been the heavy favorite a couple of times, i have had my horse sitting in the right position but it just cant seem to go with the horses up the straight. any ideas?
First tip is to get the horse out of the gate fast then leave it.
Try to ride it where it likes. ( look at the numbers on the top right)
Make sure you get the lead leg changes right.
do a quick run through the tutorials..
it takes at least 100 races to perfect how to drive your horse..
and that's what the game is all about.. controling the horse and running it how it likes.
ive been trying to get this game for ages. i want it for the ps2 but where i live there arent many game stores, making it impossible for me to buy it.
do you know where i can download this game? either G1 Jockey or Gallop Racer. your help would be much appreciated.
I don't think you can download this game.
But the Ps2 version is exactly the same as ps3. (Just Graphics different of course)
Totally worth it..
