Pro Cycling Manager 2012
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: There is something so wonderful about getting on a bicycle and riding across the country side. The thought of getting to play a Tour de France game got into my blood. So I was dismayed a few months back when the console version of Pro Cycling Manager 2012 was not coming to the United States. Hope remained, and once we purchased our new gaming PC; well lets say Pro Cycling Manager 2012 was the first game I looked up.
Conclusion: And who knows, following the heroic deeds of the cycling teams this summer, that may well happen in a post-London 2012 world. It’s just a shame that Cyanide didn’t have the foresight to include tutorials or tips for those of us that are new to the sport, as if ever there was a time to capitalise on the uptake, you’d have to think that this would be it.
Conclusion: Kid Factor: Not a lot of worries here for inappropriate content, however I would venture it isn’t quite a suitable game for any kid other than a very biking-crazy teenager. There is plenty of text to be read, but the main issue would revolve around the depth and complexity of the simulation.
Excerpt: Like many management sims, Pro Cycling Manager 2012 is not for those unaware or not knowledgeable about the sport. For example, my first race was a “sprint”, and my leading cyclist was not a sprinter, but a “puncheur” (specialist in short, steep climbs). Turns out that bringing sprinters to a race with a lot of hills is a bad idea. Did I know anything about pro cycling before the review? No. So keep this in mind as I go through this sometimes obtuse game.
Conclusion: If you are a cycling fan or if you have played a previous installment of the series, then you should head to a store or to the official online Focus Home shop and pick up Pro Cycling Manager 2012 at once, then play it for at least 40 hours or until you win Le Tour de France with a custom team. The game is solid, especially after two quick patches, and does a better job than the 2011 version at simulating the mechanics of the professional peloton.
Summary: Het zat Gesink dit jaar weer eens niet mee. Niemand rekent erop dat hij de Tour de France wint, maar een keer de finish halen met een mooie klassering zit er voor Gesink ook al niet in. Op dit moment gaat het heel degelijk in de Vuelta, maar de Nederlanders onder ons zien hem natuurlijk liever een keer winnen. Aan de wielerfans de taak om in Pro Cycling Manager: Season 2012 de Rabobank Wielerploeg over te nemen en te zorgen dat Gesink wél een keertje wint.
Pros: Nog altijd een diepgaande simulatie, Armada interessante modus..., Verbeterde AI, Delen gebruikersinterface vernieuwd
Conclusion: Tudo isto faz de Pro Cycling Manager 2012 um jogo com muita longevidade e tendo em conta que pode ser adquirido por apenas 29,90€ acaba por ficar muito em conta. Este é um jogo que tem tudo para satisfazer os fãs da modalidade e mesmo para cativar novos fãs, uma boa jogabilidade com imenso conteudo, um nível de detalhe elevado e um motor 3D dos melhores do género.
