Pro Cycling Manager 2017

Another installment of the sports game series developed by Cyanide Studio and dedicated to fans of cycling. On PC, the title is a cycling management game in which the player doesn’t have direct control over the cyclists – our task is to form the best possible team that consists of training staff and sportsmen recruited by, for example, talent hunters. One of the keys to success is to adopt the right tactic for subsequent races. In the console version of Pro Cycling Manager, the players assume the role of a chosen cyclist who belongs to one of 22 official clubs. Our goal is, of course, achieve as many successes as possible which is no small task since we have to face other world-famous teams. Compared to their predecessors, both versions of the game boast improved artificial intelligence and physics. Moreover, apart from an extensive career mode, they offer multiplayer modules that allow us to compete against and cooperate with other players from all over the world.

Pro Cycling Manager 2017 for PC / Windows is another installment of cycling management series published by Focus Home Interactive. It was developed by Cyanide Studio, known not only for this franchise but also such productions as Blood Bowl II and Styx: Shards of Darkness.

Mechanics

The gameplay mechanics known from the game’s predecessors haven’t been changed drastically in Pro Cycling Manager 2017. The players assume the role of a professional cycling club’s manager who obviously has to make sure that it wins as much as possible. It is no small task, though, since we have to face other world-famous teams during over 200 tournaments (including La Vuelta i Tour de France) divided into 500 stages.

As befits a sports management game, we do not control the sportsmen directly. Instead, our responsibilities include a number of different things. The most basic one is hiring people that will help us manage the team. A good club has to consist not only of great training staff but also brilliant sportsmen. We can obtain the latter thanks to talent hunters who look for young and talented cyclists. When we find such, we have to negotiate a contract. Of course, we need money for all these things. We receive those from sponsors. Training sessions are also important. The game lets us carefully plan and set the intensity for every cyclist.

All of the above leads to tournaments. Pro Cycling Manager 2017 allows us to adopt a proper tactic before a race and to make important decisions in the course of it. Moreover, for the first time in history of the series, we can manage the squad cycling in a single line to “protect” the key team members and save them for the crucial parts of the route.

Physics were also improved. Thanks to better calculations connected to cycling uphill and downhill, the sportsmen fatigue is more realistic than ever before.

Game modes

Pro Cycling Manager 2017 for PC / Windows offers not only an extensive campaign but also a multiplayer and some social features. The players can form clans, organize their own tournaments, talk on the chat, and compare scores.

Tour de France 2017 for PlayStation 4 is another installment of cycling management series published by Focus Home Interactive. It was developed by Cyanide Studio, known not only for this franchise but also such productions as Blood Bowl II and Styx: Shards of Darkness.

Mechanics

Contrary to Pro Cycling Manager 2017 for PC, Tour de France 2017 is not a cycling management game though both productions have common features. The players assume the role of a cyclist from one of 22 official clubs and control his career. During tournaments, we have to remember about many things. The most basic one is the distribution of strength for the entire race. It means that we have to attack our opponents in key moments or, for example, stick with the team when cycling against stronger wind. We can even issue commands to our team mates. Completing subsequent races can be done in several ways. We can, for example, cycle the entire way, while controlling our character. We can also speed up the gameplay, participate only in the most important parts of the route, or even skip an entire stage and let the computer AI do the job for us.

Other noteworthy elements include the improved artificial intelligence that proves more challenging than in the previous installment of the series and can create long-term strategies that utilize the potential of the entire team. Physics were also enhanced. What’s obvious is the recreation of actual tracks – from that in Düsseldorf, through Belgium, Luxembourg, Marseille, up to Paris.

Game modes

Tour de France 2017 for PlayStation 4 features a single-player campaign and Challenge Mode. Moreover, the game also offers a multiplayer module that lets us cooperate with other players or compete with them in Versus Mode.
