I love to ride and I've been to known to play a video game now and then. But really, this looks pretty silly.

It would be cool if they made it more realistic and included pyscho fans you had to dodge all while keeping your stamina and concentration bars up. And then you had to choose between beer and water handing to you from the side of the road.

I wish the people who made Cycling Manager 2 would have come close to this level of graphics. The TdF games looks great compared to Cycling Manager 2 but what I don't understand is why these things don't look life-like in todays age of graphics. I guess based on their exotic genre (cycling) they are made on a very low budget. Anyway...has anyone played either of these games? I just don't see cycling translating into a game very well but I would say Cycling Manager 2 probably has the right idea.


Graphics are decent and the stages all look real but who wants to play a tap tap tap.


Did I miss something or does everyone in the pro pelton have dark hair? Where is Brocharde and Frigo? Where is the scenery? Where are the polygons?
...does anyone actually know how to play this game?MarvinK

I'm probably just lazy and haven't read the readme, but Cycling Manager 2's demo isn't particularly intuitive... the layout sucks. And you'd think they could at least include some blondes (even if they are just girls congratulating you after a stage!)....
