2.0 out of 5 stars Money supply makes this game come up short August 12, 2007
By cbcbcb
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
My daughter is 5 and a half. We just got this game and she is already stuck in a catch 22: The pony is sick and we have no medicine -- but we have no money to buy medicine BUT you can't earn money until you complete your chores for the day which include giving your pony medicine -- see the problem? This is really really disappointing. Bascially we need to start the game over with a new horse -- which means we delete the current game, which means all the things she has bought and all custom saddles she has created will be deleted too. :-(

Money is always in short supply and extremely hard to get, not to mention, if you bought too much stuff, there is no way to sell it back to the store to get cash to get what you really need (like medicine). Another way to earn money is to race the pony, but we can't do that either because she is sick.

The menus are confusing, and it is somewhat hard to figure out how to get where you want to go. You can only do chores once a day (which means limited game play time each day unless you continually set your system clock ahead), and you can only really ride a path once a day and expect to get any pictures or money.

The good parts of this game: You get to choose and customize a pony, take care of it, ride it (although, it is from a 1st person point of view and you can't really guide the pony, just look right or left), take pictures of animals, and race it (although you can't control the pony-- the only thing you can do is shout encouragement into the mic and hope that this encourages the pony to go faster).

Accessorizing the pony is one of the biggest draws for this game (just like in Nintendogs where you can put ribbons, hats and sunglasses on your dog); but if you have no money to buy accessories, it's no fun...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game but has its faults June 29, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Pony Friends is a great game for people who don't know horses that well as it's very basic. I'm 19 and I got it on sale where I work so I play it for fun. Although its a good game, it does have its faults, as they all do.

Pros:

There's always something to do.
You can create a pony to look however you want it to with alot of color options
It's simple to understand and play

Cons:

It can get repetative
The graphics are choppy at times when the horse moves
Not challanging enough for someone who knows horses

2.0 out of 5 stars Flaws Pull This "Nintendogs for Horses" Up Short November 1, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
PROS:

> Beautiful and imaginative trail-ride scenarios, easily the best part of the game.

> Lovely introductory video clips to each section

CONS:

> One bug that I've found: The chores list from which a player derives income often refuses to credit the player with chores done.

> Money for horse care accrues so slowly and in such small amounts that it's far too easy to run out of money.

PRO OR CON: This is not an action game and lacks the interactive contests of "Nintendogs." Winning a horse race, for example, comes down to shouting into the microphone; that's the only contest in the program. Players who like caring for and walking their "Nintendogs" will enjoy similar activities here, particularly the superior trail rides, with their lovely scenery. Players who want more excitement may be disappointed.

* * *

THE FLAW: I'm an adult who's played the game extensively over the last week, and I've encountered the same problem on two different cartridges. A player earns daily money by performing three chores for the ponies owned. Supplementary income and possessions come from finding items on trail rides. Unlocking such an item, however, may freeze the "chores checklist" so that you get no further credit (or money) for chores you perform. This effectively shuts down your primary income to support your horses. The only solution I've found is to erase all progress and start again from scratch. The first time this happened, I called the developer and left a message but heard nothing either via phone or email. In subsequent play I've found that often a player gets no credit for the feeding chore when owning multiple horses.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but some Faults January 18, 2009
A Kid's Review
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I like the trails and all, but the animals look all deformed, and when you wash, brush, and clean your horses' hooves, you have to press the box to go back, shouldn't you go back without doing that?
But, in the long run, it's a great game for younger kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lame Name, Fun Game June 25, 2007
A Kid's Review
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, the name is very childish but this game is actually pretty fun.

Be warned though, if your looking for an action packed horse riding game, you might not want to buy this. This game is mostly about pony care.

In the beginning of the game you can create or buy a pony. If you get enough money you can buy accesories and even another pony. The compitions are like a mini game where you cheer on your pony, not to loud, not to quiet. And the trail rides are like real trail rides, you don't control the horse. The trail rides might be boring if it wasn't for the ability to take pictures of animals for money. Overal this game is pretty fun, but not action packed.

Pros:

You can dress up your pony with fun horseshoes, saddles, bridals and blankets

You can have mutiple ponies

Trail rides can be fairly fun

Cons:

Not much riding

Can be a bit repetative

This is a fun game but it gets repetitive and it isn't the most fun if you're older. There are a lot of ways that you can design your own horse, but it seems difficult to earn... Read more
