    Developer Cyanide has once again improved its cycling manager with an improved interface and some added management options. Though there are still a lot of improvements to be made in the coming editions.

    Another year, another Pro Cycling Manager, but still no big improvement in this 2012 edition. Cyanide may have been focused ont other projects and, as a result, the game isn't very different from last year's game. Graphics are slightly better and the Season Planner is finally a pretty good tool. But at the end of the day, players who already have PCM 2011 will need to think hard before splashing some cash in this new edition.

    Improved compared to the previous editions, Pro Cycling Manager 2012 is a good simulation that has some problems in the multiplayer because of Cyanide's lucrative buy to win system.

    Pro Cycling Manager 2012 offers some tangible innovations if you look at the managerial side. The simulation is improved as well, but the technical side is the same of the previous edition.

    A good cycling game, although a bit stagnated. If last year game was a bit scarce in new features, this one is even worse in this aspect, and it looks more like an expansion or update for the previous game than a new game itself. However, this is still the best cycling management game out there.

    A little more than previous edition, Pro Cycling Manager 2012 goes ahead with its personal travel to perfection but his step is quite little. Anyway, it remains the best cycling game of the year.

    Pro Cycling Manager is the best cycling game on the market, not for being a great game, but because of the lack of competition. The 2012 edition makes a lot of small changes that actually makes the game worse. Even if the new multiplayer is innovative, I would rather stick with last year's version.

    I think if you want to race it is the best cycling game you can find. If you like play as manager I think it is better you play a game as www.cyclingforfun.org that allow you play online controlling a cycling team.
    Pro Cycling Manager IA is better every year, terrains and graphics too. They need to improve manager system to be a better cycling game.
