One of my friends is crazy for cycling (he rides every day to work etc, and then races at the weekends), and when i told him about this game he went nuts.
I doubt it will be a great game, but should appeal to those kind of people who watch the tour highlights etc on TV.

Gave the trial a go and didnt think much of it. I expected to be actually riding the bike but instead, you manage five bikes who get tired easily, i dont understand the fun in this?

i tried trial, it would of been better if i can control and hold down the RT button. Kind of like car racing games. But, madballs seem fun, but not really into monkey island though.

i gave up on monkey island after it took 20 minutes of playing before i even had proper control of my character and an idea of what to do, in a trial game i want gameplay, not unskipable story..tour de france i actually enjoyed, even tho i was crap at it because it took me half the stage to work out what i was doing...will give it another go, and will probably buy it to be honest..once i get some more points that is

There was once a proper Tour game on the PC where you rode the bike and had to manage your strength and stamina.

A shame this is nothing like that.

I think for 10$ you could by a used bike on craigslist or ebay and do the actual thing... If you buy this game, you top all achievement whores of achievement whores.

The game isn't a button masher its more of a managing game, and apparently its pretty good.

Also Tour De France is only available in the US :( Might be worth mentioning that
