    For cycling fans, this whole package is probably the ultimate dream of combining everything that is great about the sport into one extensive management sim. The level of detail in rider stats; the amount of control over races; the strategic plays during the heat of action. All of these things mean for fans it is absolutely a must own. That said, niche genres always have to be balanced to also allow for the introduction of complete outsiders to the field. For such people, the experience is still an overwhelming one, even with the addition of a rigorous tutorial. There is still a whole heap of gameplay mechanics that could do with just a bit more explanation. With all that said, the Pro Cyclist mode which streamlines many of the most complicated mechanics into a more traditional role-playing mode, helps in that regard significantly, and therefore pulls the overall experience for newbies up.

    It's a rather engaging experience overall, although undoubtedly a little dry. The big question for Pro Cycling Manager 2020 is whether it's going to open up to people who aren't cycling enthusiasts, but it's unlikely that the game will have that kind of broad appeal. Those who are fair weather cycling fans may struggle, but someone with a decent enough knowledge of pro cycling should be able to get on board without trouble.

    Before buying Pro Cycling Manager 2020 just consider if the absence of significant new features could be a problem for you.

    At the end of the day, it’s true that PCM 2020 delivers the series’ most realistic version of either managing or being a professional cyclist, but issues of technical quality and system design mean that it’s far from the experience it could be.

You need to know some cycling if you want to play it. If you are a beginner, I recommend you to start with Pro cyclist mode, because there you learn a lot. And a tip for advanced players: In your team use all round cyclists, because you need helpers for leaders on all kind of stages.

    And, in the end, if you want to learn some Pro Cycling Manager playing, view Youtube profiles of Benji Naesen, Timmsoski, and Blackwar!!

    Buy it and enjoy!!!!

This makes it hard to justifyThe main downside of this game is that it is almost the same as the previous versions, with very few changes. This makes it hard to justify the price of the game. But as a game, it is very addicting and fun to play. If this is your first time playing this game series, you will probably enjoy it (I especially enjoy career mode). But if you have last years game, you're probably better off not buying (unless it goes on sale on Steam). Expand
