This Christmas we decided to buy a Nintendo Wii game system and wanted to purchase a Wii game for each of our children. Our daughter is 5 years old and loves horses. After reading reviews on different horse games, I decided that most would be too hard for her. At the time, I couldn't find a review for the Barbie Horse Adventures, but took a chance anyway and purchased the game for her.

The game starts with Barbie arriving at Riding Camp which has lots of storm damage. She is instructed to pick out some riding clothes and a horse. Afterwards, she is shown how to care for her horse by feeding it and grooming it. This is all easy to follow but somewhat time consuming. Next, the riding instructor gives Barbie her first adventure, to ride around the arena in a timed race. From here, the player finds adventures such as riding events, storm clean-up events, and horse care events. At the completion of each adventure, camp credit is given for purchasing riding clothes and horse gear. You also earn awards for riding events.

Some things about the game were very intuitive and easy for my daughter to pick up. Controlling the horse isn't too bad although my daughter tends to over steer with the Wii remote but I blame that on "operator error". My reasons for giving the game an "Okay" rating is the confusion of finding your way around the island for the adventures. The map is hard to read on the screen and I found myself going back to the game paper insert for help. There are signposts occasionally but they are hard to read when you are riding past them on a horse. I have found that I need to play the game prior to my daughter playing it so that I can help her navigate and pick adventures that she will want to do.

We have a wii and the 7 year old never uses it. Most of the games are too fast, too confusing, or too frustrating for her. This game was her pick, and she is still very excited about it. However, after about 4 hours of play (half with her father and half with me), I'm ready to hang myself. As another reviewer has pointed out, the directions are fairly unclear and the map very hard to read and follow. The controls can be frustrating - even for me. The directions are very little help. My daughter would like to earn ribbons that would let her ride another horse, but how this is accomplished is not addressed in the directions. The directions also tell me that the cell phone is useful for a number of different functions, but unless someone calls, the cell phone doesn't seem to be available. Already, she seems to simply be riding her horse all over the fields and trails but not doing anything to actually play the game. I can't imagine that any child could use this game without parental assistance. Overall, a frustrating ride through the brush and into a tree.

This game is a good game. I can see it getting old if you have finished the "assignments". It really is very easy but I think you might need to be 5+ to play without frustration. You basically just ride around and ask your instructor what to do. Hell give you assignments like "run this trail" or "go find the water to water your horse". But my 5 year old probably would give it a 7 out of 10 stars and I think its decent.

This was part of my 7 year old granddaughter's Christmas. What a big hit! She is turned off by many of the WII games; they just don't hold her interest. Logan Grace loves horses and so Barbie's Horse Adventures is the perfect video game for her.

I purchased Barbie Horse Adventures: Riding Camp in the hopes of finding a good game for the Wii that let me enjoy riding around on a horse. I had low expectations to start with, but found the game to be better than I imagined. It has enough direction to allow you to progress through the quests relatively easily, yet it also allows you to ride around with no set goal. This game is recommended mainly for the target audience of young girls. However, I think it has enough elements to warrant a play-through for those looking for an open-ended horse riding game. Just be aware that its playability is limited: Once you finish the game, there really is little else to do.

POSITIVES
- The amount of open space available to ride around in is very varied and vast.
- The controls require some getting used to, but are relatively straight forward after mastering them.
- There are many side quests throughout the game, adding to the content.
- The customization options are limited, but should appeal to many players.

NEGATIVES
- The graphics are not very good, even for the Wii.
- Many of the activities require a simple button click, rather than actual actions with the Wii remote.
- Some parts of the game can be tedious and too repetitive.
- The main storyline appears to be too simple at times, and makes the game seem too easy.
- The voice acting can get annoying and repetitive.

Overall, I would say that the game lives up to what it is advertised as, and does not offer too much more. Barbie Horse Adventures: Riding Camp does not disappoint, but expect an average game designed to entertain younger players. Good luck!
