Hot on the heels of the original Horse Racing Manager which sold over 30,000 units in the UK.
Horse Racing Manager 2 features three playing modes to suit all fans of sports management games: In Owner / Trainer mode the player manages the finances of their stable, starting out with limited facilities and staff and works to grow the business through the years, with the objective of running the most prestigious horse racing team. Decide which races to enter and hire jockeys as you see fit.
Invest in new buildings and staff. Buy and breed new horses, find out each horse’s preferences to maximise its potential and send them on to stud to create a new bloodline of champions! In Jockey mode the player aims to become the most talented jockey in the world.
Success is measured in terms of races won as well as total winnings, and the rankings tables are updated in real time. In Betting mode you can win or lose money on all types of races. You have access to a limited series of races from the start but as your winnings rise you will be able to gamble on more prestigious events. Successful betting requires quick-fire thinking since although vast quantities of detailed stats are available, they are not available hours before each race so betting decisions must be made on the fly.
The only horse racing / management game returns on PC with the following improvements over the original: 3 race types: flat, hurdles/steeplechase and harnessed trot.
Multiplayer option: Play online with other players through the Cyanide games centre State of the art graphics engine: more attractive interface, horses with different builds and colours, realistic tracks, detailed environments, mud projection, winners podium and night racing.
