Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron - Box

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
Ages: Everyone 6+

The game's premise is based upon the movie, but it's not a necessary prerequisite to enjoying the game. Lots of developing action and implied story lies within this cartridge. The beginning action involves taming one of the four horses in the corral by petting , feeding, talking or singing to them. Some horses are easy to tame, some are difficult and are hard to approach, Once tamed, you can mount and ride your horse. As you ride through the different lands, Prairie, Desert, Canyon and Forest you will encounter different animals benign and dangerous, hazards and simply tasks to do to advance your passage, but throughout your journey, you must attend to the needs of your horse or else you lose its trust and you will have to re-tame it (start again at that level). You have to get all four horses home before the endgame with Spirit. Good animation considering it's a GBA. Loved getting on and off the horses.

Editor Review

I've never seen the movie, but I'm sure it's not as boring as the game. To me, this games was too ... oh, what's the word? I can't really think of a word to describe it, but it was too hard to finish one level. In the first level you have to tame a horse. Next level you make sure your horse is happy in order for you to ride it and stomp little, mean animals. In order for your horse to be happy, it has to be groomed, chatted with, and not hungry. Oh, and did I mention that if your horse isn't happy, he/she loses his/her loyalty in you? When that happens you have to tame the horse even more! This game is very annoying if you ask me. Out of a 1 to 10 ... I'll give it a 5 just because it had nice graphics and sound.
