It must be said, horse racing isn’t particularly well represented across the gaming landscape. In fact, if you have a love for four-legged racing, then your options are pretty limited. Now though we see Phar Lap – Horse Racing Challenge mosey on up to the starting gate – can it change the horse racing gaming scene?
Available right now on Xbox One, Phar Lap – Horse Racing Challenge on Xbox One thrusts you right into the thrill of the chase, as you hit the racing world to create and build your own stable of thoroughbreds.
Promising cinematic visuals that throw out realistic horses and allow you to really get a feel for the excitement of the race, Phar Lap allows you to get involved in multiple racing elements in order to deliver the very highest energy levels. This will see you being able to run against others with the online racing options, whilst breeding champion horses via a genetic breeding system is also in place for those preferring to go down that route.
Additionally to that though, Phar Lap – Horse Racing Challenge on Xbox One also lets you involve yourself with the money making aspect of horse racing – you know, the only reason we love horse racing – with the chance to place bets with up to 8 players, before watching the hot action unfold.
Priced up at £19.99 and available right now from the Xbox Store, Phar Lap – Horse Racing Challenge on Xbox One may well be able to fill the void left in the gaming scene by sending out a decent horse racing product to gamers. Whether that is actually the case or not is yet to be seen though and only our upcoming full review will be able to let you in on the finest details.
- Cinematic Graphics: realistic horses with motion-captured animations showcase and capture the action and intensity of the race
- Online Racing: lets you run in real time alongside others with up to 8 players online
- Career Story Mode: rebuild your family legacy, and breed and race your way back to the top. Make history and build a brighter future.
- Place Bets: share the fun as you place your bets with friends and watch races play out

We certainly hope it’s good, for the only real other option to consider is that of Horse Racing 2016 – and that is quite possibly the worst game to ever arrive on Xbox One.
