PROS

  • Simple elegant design.
  • Realistic live racing.

CONS

  • More of a simulator than a game.

VERDICT

If you need a quick betting fix or want to get some of the same excitement without putting your pay-cheque up, then Virtual Horse Racing 3D is a great alternative to the real thing. For everyone else it'll have the same appeal as a slot machine simulator, but with more excitement than spinning images.

Virtual Horse Racing 3D by Natenai Ariyatrakool is a niche title that puts you in the place of a punter on the race track, making bets and watching a race in real time.

This game is a simple time-waster affair, with players placing bets between racers in various amounts. Regular punters will find this to be a fairly simple but informative interface, but there's little complication to the touch elements used.

One of the main features of the game is the real time races that occur after placing your bets. This can be quite exciting as the camera tracks the horses in the same style used in betting houses, letting you get small glimpses of that beautiful horse you've placed your last buck on to keep in the game.

Being such a simple title, there's little appeal to those outside of a regular betting scene. You can experience some of the excitement that comes with putting big money on the line and perhaps learn some of the tricks to covering your bets, but ultimately the real thing will always be far more exciting as the money and profits are truly placed on the line.
