When it comes to horse racing games, the truth is that there isn’t much action for horse racing enthusiasts to experience the sport through video games.
Even though the popularity of horse racing has been growing over the years, according to TwinSpires, there are only a handful of high-quality games being released for consoles.
Since game developers do not support the idea of horse racing, there are no horse racing games that are released only for PS5. However, most of the games that were available for the PS4 can be played on the new console.
Even though horse racing games do not hold the same standard in terms of graphic design and horse racing mechanics as other triple-A games, there are still some that have managed to achieve fun and realistic gameplay.
Here are some of the most realistic PS5 games.
Finally after many years we have a decent horse racing game which is somewhat realistic and can give them that real racing experience. Phar Lap is one of the few games that features immersive 3D graphics, which might not be up to the high standards of a triple-A game, but for a horse racing game, they’re brilliant.
The game was developed by PikPok and published by Home Entertainment Supplies in 2019. Even though both companies are not very popular in the gaming world, they still managed to produce an incredible horse racing game that is even available on Android and iOS.
One of the best things about Phar Lap is the graphics. It seems that the developers have taken a lot of time to plan the horses and the racing tracks to make them as realistic as possible.
One great thing about this game is that it involves more than horse racing. You will control the household, the horse racing schedule, the stable and the training of your horses. To become a household name in the world of horse racing, you must earn prestige and respect with your stable.
For players who are interested in learning more about what goes on behind the scenes at horse racing, this is a great game.
Winning position 9
Here we have another well-known name in the world of horse racing games with years of experience producing 9 series of games over the years.
This is also the latest horse racing game released globally and introduced this year. This game was developed and published by Koei Temco, who have been working on horse racing games since 1993.
Now, even though this is a long-running franchise, you can’t expect Red Dead Redemption 2-style graphics.
However, Winning Post 9 seems to offer quite realistic gameplay with many different game options as well as an interesting breeding and betting system.
This is one of the few games that manages to capture the original spirit of horse racing, involving a lot more behind the scenes than just racing.
There are different breeds of horses, each with its own characteristics, and the graphics are good enough to enjoy a horse racing game.
Rival Stars Horse Racing
The same company that developed Phar Lap also developed Rival Stars Horse Racing, a thrilling game for horse racing fans. You inherit your grandfather’s farm in the game, which marks the beginning of your new life.
As soon as you get the keys to the family home, you have to decide what to do with it. A number of options are available, from working as a jockey to starting a breeding or training operation.
Buying horses and paying staff will require funding for your business.
Several ways to earn money are available in the game, including by betting virtual money or working for other people.
In this elaborate horse racing game, you can explore various professions in the industry, compete against other players from around the world, and see famous racetracks around the globe. It offers much more than just racing, which makes it more realistic.
