Tour de France 2018 comes after a very forgettable predecessor, so its job isn’t easy. But its Pro Team mode is bigger than ever, the Pro Leader mode is compelling and its AI has improved. It still needs more polishing though.
Tour de France 2018 is the official Grand Boucle game. The title is a complex tactical simulation of cycling, with two management mode: Pro Team e Pro Leader. Unfortunately the graphic detail is poor and there isn't any interesting online mode.
The Tour de France is one of the most important cycling events in the world, but the game developed by Cyanide Studio and presented by Focus Home Interactive is not up to par. Unfortunately, the few good things are buried by the bad ones. We believe that the French team still has to deal with its own career to achieve excellence.
Take this review with a pinch of salt as I'm not a cycling nut. Tour de France 2018 is a game for very specific, patient enthusiasts. The license is used to great effect with every rider, team and stage of the marathon event covered. Unfortunately, there's a lack of visual polish and some baffling decisions that hold this game back. There's a lot to do but, as with most endurance sports, newcomers have to deal with a lot of waiting before the action really starts.
When you’re doing the same and cruising downhill through the beautiful countryside or fighting and clawing to get your wheels in front at the top of a grueling climb, Le Tour De France 2018 is enjoyable stuff. But outside of those times, it’s yet another buggy and undercooked update for a title that had fallen off the pace a few iterations ago.
