Recently I was given the opportunity to test out Ubisoft’s Horses 3D as part of the Ubichamps group at Clever Girls Collective. Horses is the perfect little girl game and is KG’s favorite right now. What little girl hasn’t dreamed of owning their own horse (whether they can ride or not)? If given the opportunity, KG would spend all day playing with and caring for her horse, Skipper. You should hear her, when she talks about her friends and their horses you would swear they were real people.
In fact, let’s do that – Let’s have KG tell you all about what she thinks of Horses 3D.
In Horses you have the unique ability to choose your own horse out of 16 different and realistic looking choices to feed, play with, groom and teach allowing the player an opportunity to form bonds with your horse. The 3D effects are crisp and clear, drawing the player right into the action and add to the feeling of really being in the game.
In the game, players are able to train their horses to compete in four different disciplines (KG’s favorite being stunt riding) and can compete against their friends through StreetPass, earning them various collectible cards that give the players access to new competitions or even a new horse.
Parent’s recommendation: If my 5 year old were able to understand and complete all of the instructions, this game would be completely appropriate for her. I would recommend this game for any age child, though I would not (and do not) allow my child to access StreetPass without an adult present. Horses 3D helps to reinforce those characteristics you’re teaching from home: responsibility, kindness, helpfulness and more. This is a perfect game for using as a reward in your home, since you can let them play without feeling guilty about the lessons they’re learning.
Have you played Horses? What did you think about it?
