5.0 out of 5 stars Great if you're into cycle touring 28 Dec 2012
By Ignotus
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is excellent if you understand the subtleties of cycle racing. If you don't, then I'd concur with the other reviews that it's not for you. However, if you're a cycling afficionado, this game has everything you could ever wish for. It faithfully replicates all the intricacies of tour racing, presenting you as the team captain with a plethora of decisions on every stage.

Each stage of the tour is broken up into several sections, within which you can choose which member of your team you want to race as - you can even switch team-members mid-section if (for instance) an intermediate sprint is followed by a key climb. Like any touring stage, only the first and last sections are truly exciting, as you decide how to handle the opening breakaways or set yourself up for the final push to the line. However, what really makes this game in my opinion is the detailed strategy it requires you to employ during the middle sections of the race, just like a real tour manager. Do you set up a relay train to try and reel in that dangerous breakaway? Do you disrupt other teams' relays to let your own breakaway escape? Which domestique do you use to protect your key cyclists and when? When do you attack? When do you insert a super-domestique into an attack to use as a springboard for later? How are your team-members holding up, and how can you manage their energy consumption? Do you go for intermediate sprints or mountain points, or do you hang back and conserve your energy? Can you set up a sprint train at the end of the race - and if you can't, can you manoeuvre your sprinter into a position to win without the aid of a sprint train?

3.0 out of 5 stars First thoughts and review 8 July 2012
By MG
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm in no way a cyclist or cyclist race fan but after watching the TDF on my local tv and noting the British interest with the sky team I thought I would buy and try.I was a bit nervous about the latter after the negative game review of the 2011 edition, but gambled anyway.I can't compare it to the 2011 game(never played that edition) and I can't offer an expert race cyclist review on the realism of 2012 but here goes.

First of all my advice is to go through the tutorial to learn the basics, it's just a shame the tutorial is not interactive and more informative so you can actually practice the techniques.You have only photos with descriptions of what to do and what the game play symbols are.In the game itself you have the Tour De France(TDF)season mode in which you go through all the stages and a TDF single stage mode in which you can play any stage and use it as practice.I just practiced on the first long stage over and over plus the first time trial(ever slightly different technique to stage race)so that I didn't spoil the TDF season mode(up to you?)I think it would be nice in the future to either or both include a TDF career mode or include more season support races like tour of spain so to work your way up.Also maybe create your own rider and team?as you can only play with an excisting team.The latter determines your difficulty so as an example I picked the Sky team (British interest)which is intermediate level.

As far as the graphics go they are ok.Only gripes are sometimes the brigtness of light is too high and spoils the picture.Plus the cyclists only look to be pedaling when they are going for it on the flat or uphill.I never noticed the traditional road markings too and the fans seem a bit sparce and too spaced out as well as been a bit cardboardy.

2.0 out of 5 stars One for the shelf 25 Nov 2012
By Żabka
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
As with all games in this genre, it is slow, boring & the scenery & people (including their voices) repeat endlessly every few seconds for hours on end. One for only the most ardent TdF fan (I thought I was - but this game is a bridge too far).
