With Tour De France fever in the air since it began on July 5th, cycling enthusiasts, gamers and anyone in between can get a little insight into the competition with Pro Cycling Manager - Tour De France 2008.
Think Football Manager but on bikes - the game sees you building your team and implementing strategically sound race tactics throughout the 22-day race. Battling for that prestigious yellow jersey, players are in charge of every aspect of their race from start to finish, included choosing the best riders and setting training schdules to help the team prepare.
Once the tour begins, the team of cyclists has to be guided through the 21 stages and 2000 miles of competitive racing. Starting in Brest, the stages make up a round trip of France, including races through Nantes, Toulouse and the famous Alpe D'Huez. Cyclists will finish the three week stint with the traditional loop around the historic Champs-Élysées in Paris.
With improved animation and highly detailed rider models, the latest version of the popular racing manager game is available now for PC and PSP.
