Wow this is a really fun dlc. I've just had a ball racing my horse against the others, the horse controls really well with the Xbox controller left toggle stick, and the A button to use powerups. It has both Single and Multiplayer options, so very good to go head to head with a few friends. I have had so much fun with The Race :D
I just love picking up the waterbucket powerups to drop in front of my oponents as this helps slow them down so you stay in front and the wings help give you speed for a few seconds, thats until you get pulled back by a Magic Crystal from behind especially when nearing the finish line and your in front. But you can only have 1 powerup at a time, so you must use it at the right time if your to win or get near the front. You also have healing herbs so if you get one use it if you have been caught by a bucket or a magic crystal and it will heal your horse and you'll be back to a steady race speed again.
Remember you can only have 1 powerup at a time so you must use it before picking up another one.
The Secret of Magic Crystals dlc The Race is a lot of fun no differant to racing a car only with a horse instead. These developers have done a wonderful job with this dlc in my opinion, with plenty room for improvement. Keep up the fantastic work your all doing Artery Games. ; )
