We can’t pretend that the horse racing video gaming scene is alive and well. In fact, if anything, it’s struggling along like a lame nag. So there’s also space in this world for a new horse racing title – even if it is 22 years old!
Available right now on Xbox One is ACA Neogeo Stakes Winner 2, a game that was originally released by SNK way back in 1996. Following on from the May release of Stakes Winner 1 on Xbox One, and attempting to take the crown of top jockey in the racing scene, Stakes Winner 2 will most surely appeal to those who like a bit of horse racing.
It’s journey to the top seems an easy one too as the only real horse racing title that could possibly stand claim to the title would be that of Horse Racing 2016. But if truth be told, it’s quite possibly the worst game we have ever played on Xbox One.
But what does ACA Neogeo Stakes Winner 2 bring? Well, 12 horses and the chance to ride like never before, utilising a series of controls, items and training systems to ensure that you constantly come out on top.
With the usual modern day Neogeo enhancements like game difficulty settings, and the opportunity to compete with others around the world via leaderboard placings, and ACA Neogeo Stakes Winner 2 may just appeal.
If you fancy giving it a shot then you’ll find it available from the Xbox Store for £6.09.
STAKES WINNER 2 is a horse racing action game released by SNK in 1996. Choose your favorite of 12 horses and grasp victory in heated races! Control your horse like never before! Be wary, as jockeys who break the rules may be punished!! Make use of the controls, items and training systems to completely dominate the GI Races. The “ACA NEOGEO” series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces. Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores. Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games. *This title is based off the MVS (NEOGEO for arcades) version. There may be differences between this version and the versions for the home NEOGEO console and other home consoles.
