    A game made for hardcore cycling fans. Its gameplay might result simple for many players, but each stage of the competition is an strategy challenge, and also depends on luck. Winning is not easy, and that is something interesting that fosters us to keep playing. It has some interesting elements and improvements in comparison with the previous year version, but technically it is still poor, and has room for many enhancements.

    A decent game for cycling lovers, with an interesting managerial side but lacking on several aspects, like shoddy sounds and the complete absence of a tutorial for newcomers to the series.

    It's time to stop pedalling this game. [Sept 2012, p.95]

    Le Tour de France fails at the very core of its concept. Controlling both a team and a rider does not work, and the game is neither realistic nor entertaining. It fails in every aspect and cannot be recommended for anyone.

    Under no circumstances can this game offer the excitement and adrenaline rush of the Tour de France event. If you're looking for something along those lines you'll have better luck if you try the PC version.

    Overall, I think the idea of a Tour de France game appeals more than it does in reality. The reality is the game is extremely slow, tiring and offers very little frills.
