While looks are important, the real meat of the game is still the management aspect, which is now more detailed than ever. The user interface has been streamlined for easier reading, while still offering more precise interactions with the team’s cyclists and sponsors. Sponsorship management is richer and more in-depth, and each cyclist’s performance during a competition will directly impact their salaries and sponsors' offers. To keep things interesting, the updated AI presents fierce completion with plausible, unpredictable behavior in the pack, during breakaways, in sprints, and other highlights of the race.
The fan-favorite level-editor is back, letting creative players design their dream race! It has been updated with a broad range of new scenery objects and new effects to create new races with an even higher level of detail!
With a wide range of new features, tweaks and upgrades, the game still stays faithful to the spirit of the series.
