Last year's G1 Jockey Wii took a lot of people by surprise. While it had complicated controls and layouts, those who took the time to learn all the bits and pieces discovered it had a lot of depth and was a decent horse racing game. Sadly, fans of last year's outing have little reason to pick up G1 Jockey Wii 2008. The game is more or less the same, with only a few new options that don't really warrant a second look.
The game's story mode isn't all that spectacular. Players simply assume the role of an upcoming jockey who's just graduated and about to enter the world of horse racing. The story is told through conversations with 2D cardboard cut-outs, it doesn't really hold your interest for long and in the end you'll just be pressing the A button to skip the endless amounts of dribble. What it lacks in presentation however, it makes up for with in-depth gameplay.
