The game looks cool..

I've never played a cycling game before, and this game looks pretty neat, I'm just worried it will get repetitive very quickly otherwise I would buy this on release.

Would do you guys think?

If you are a cycling fan, just watch the Tour the France.

Every day 250 kilometer long cycling, I don't know if you can save half of the day.. but it will take a while to finish a day

ugh im playing it right now and I dont like it. You dont even control the biker. You just manage his stats like heart rate and energy and stuff. I feel like this is deadliest catch bike edition.

Havent even bothered to play it yet, I was waiting for someone else too.

Is it hard or achievements or so much of a pain you dont want to do them?

Really? Ok I've heard enough, I'm gonna do myself a favour and just skip on this game. A real shame, I really wanted to try it.

idk I wanted to like it but I also wanted to control the biker. I only did a race and a half and then I got side tracked. Probably wont come back. Just waiting on Earth Defense Force and that will hold me over for quite some time. I LOVED the first one.

I have started playing today (for a review). My initial impressions are not so positive. While this is the closest I have seen to a real Tour de France race in a video game, with teamwork, energy management, long courses, real teams and riders etc., it is also very ugly and not that exciting. You have some form of control over your rider, but it is pretty limited, the tactics are way more important than riding skills (or button mashing).

This a really cool game, yes you do control your rider through the most important parts and it simulates all the boring parts, there is plenty of riders to choose from and the teamwork is amazing, you can transfer messages over to your team through headset or prebuilt in terminology, it is a chilled out game and alot of people would see it as repetitive but the graphics are fine and also it is something a bit different.

I agree the graphics are fine but the lack of rider control was a real shame. I had visions of skillful descents from the peaks but I can't even get away from the pack!
