too complicated to enjoy

WOW, trying to figure out how to "unlock" scenes to move forward is impossible. This comes with no directions and internet searches on how to play, yield nothing. This game was basically unusable by us due to the complexity of the game. My 7 year old quickly tired of the game.

This title has:

Easy to play/use

Horses 3D is a strong 3DS title for girls. The graphics are nice and the game is easy to pick and play. Girls who love horses will welcome the opportunity to choose and name their horse, as well as to groom and care for it. The activities are varied, but there is a lot of riding from one end of the map to the other, which can feel tedious at times. It's much more fun to compete in events and win medals. Some tasks must be completed within certain time limits and can be demanding of perfection, so players need to use patience and may need to try repeatedly. Horses 3D rewards success with new in-game outfits, however, so there is additional motivation to keep on trying. Overall, it's a fun game for horse fans, and a rewarding 3DS experience.
