Humble bicycles have been used by young, old and middle-aged men in Lycra and have been regarded as a viable mode of human-powered transport for most of the 200 years. But wherever there is a bike, there is a platform for competition, and many are trying to prove themselves across multiple disciplines. There are BMXing for young people, indoor Zwifting at the time of blockage, and off-road gravel scenes to keep up the trend. But if you really want to prove that you are the best cyclist in the world, it’s the strength of the propeloton that calls you. The most influential, most important and most interesting race that Peloton participates in is the Tour de France race, the most spectacular grand tour that covers all the great things in the professional cycling scene.
In recent years, the cycling scene has been fed into the virtual world, especially after the Armstrong hurricanes have been wiped out and cycling has begun to find a suitable foothold at the Olympics. Here, the annual release of the Tour de France (video game) sought to highlight the best moments of professional bike racing. To be honest, we can’t deliver it every time.
But that doesn’t prevent NACON and Cyanide Studios from pushing the bike back to the starting line in 2021, hoping that cyclists around the world will be able to follow in the footsteps of the heroes in the 2021 Tour de France. Spectacular sports bring another copy-and-paste job, and sports enthusiasts want it again.
To be honest, the Tour de France 2021 is rotating the pedal in the wrong direction, which previously appreciated the challenges embedded in the problem, but this time it has been completely omitted. Instead, all we have left is a minimalist cycling experience that works in full race mode with professional teams and leaders. However, in reality, the main gameplay of each is so similar that you can put them all together.
There are two ways to see this 2021 edition of the Tour de France. One as a failed cycling simulator and the other as a slightly better cycling management experience. You see, if you were looking for the first option there, you would be very disappointed. However, if you manage the details of your bike race and make a small profit to become the best cycling manager possible, you will find that you are enjoying the experience. However.
Race mode is the bread and butter of what we have here, giving players the opportunity to participate in a series of stage races or a day’s classics, gaining experience as they progress, It also unlocks the event. The Tour de France is an outstanding option here and playing all 21 stages of the 2021 tour is more than feasible. Choosing your fancy team from all real-world options (although not fully stacked with all riders and team licenses) climbs hills, competes for sprints, and breaks defining the world of cycling. You can participate in the away.
The stage itself is well replicated and not the exact length and structure of the actual tour, but cyanide and NACON are not too far away. For example, the final run around Paris and Champs Elysees has been cut in almost half, but other stage profiles are at least a few kilometers from the stage our favorite pros will race this year. Quite a lot of different difficulty levels, chances to play alone or in a collaborative way, either cyanide team ratings or your own predefined EPO-enhanced super teams that can be achieved by performing the stage. There are variations.
The problem is, like the actual sport itself, it’s a very niche product, and even if it’s integrated with the world of cycling, spending hours on a long stage of 200 km is seriously really for hardcore. It’s just a viable option. Still, just for hardcore with a little loose screws. Instead, many expect to fast forward any stage to a particular moment, race in real time, and then return when a lead to a sprint, KOM’s nudge, or breakaway occurs. To do. Skip a few kilometers again to the overview and the next point. In fact, the game encourages you to do exactly that, both in the story and in the ease of skipping. Without it, this is also best, as this is a game that fully defines the word “grind”. There is also a reason why the whole thing can be fully simulated in just a few seconds.
Upon completing the stage, you will be awarded XP depending on your finish position before throwing straight for the next long ride. Rinse and repeat this several times (21 tours). That way, you can unlock the race even more and become more competitive along the way.
It’s not too far to discover that you can race the iconic Paris-Nice route, the Critérium du Dauphiné, the cobblestones of Paris-Roubaix, or the climbs of Liege-Bastogne-Liege. In fact, the TDF 2021 has quite a few race types and includes My Tour, where you can choose your favorite stage and put it together on your Grand Tour, so you won’t want it. here.
Besides the main race options, there are pro team and pro leader options. Again, the basic gameplay is very similar to what you see in racing, but manage your team and turn it into the best racing group in the world (Dave Brailsford and Team Sky / Ineos). I have a chance. Ideal), or create your own rider from scratch, push it to the race calendar, hone your skills and kill yourself to catch up with the competition. Trying to earn enough cash and points over multiple seasons to unlock an entry into a larger race can feel like a really good grind.
No matter which option you choose here, basic gameplay will be poor if you don’t simulate the race in just a few seconds. The visual was torn straight from last year’s title-and perhaps the couple before it-and it looks like a little extra brilliance was thrown into Peloton thanks to the power of the next-generation console, but it’s still especially Not amazing.
The rider’s character model is just the Vincenzo Nibali clone of the same cookie cutter we previously “enjoyed”. The bikes are all similar, but with different colors and coloring to separate the teams (although nothing duplicates the actual model). The area around the stage itself is okay, but once again a complete copy-and-paste job is a top priority.
Moreover, there is no immersiveness or excitement here. No matter how hard you try, the rider will not fall out, and with the puck, you will pass through the guardrail and bounce happily into the crowd without worrying about it. It’s strange that this is completely inaccurate, as the crash is part of cycling. It is possible to come to hell, the corner and just empower you to go around without tapping the brake lever. And a very slight sense of real-world duplication of how each character rides, leans against a corner, crosses the road vertically and horizontally when hitting a mountaineer, and uses a crosswind train to stay in the draft. But I just feel sick.
And don’t start the cobblestone section. Yes, climbing cobblestones offers a completely different experience than rolling on a smooth runway, but duplicates this game other than shaking off hell from the rider enough to empower the player. There is certainly a better way headaches.
However, gameplay has some advantages. It’s great that the development team started a time trial stance and gave me the opportunity to take an aero position when the time came. The problem is that this isn’t a revolutionary move, as you’ll be fast-forwarding many / all of the stages you play.
The audio is not so good. There are only a few scattered moments when the same old commentary is ejected along the same old line that has been included over the years and is preserved for certain climbs and notable facts. There is little sound from the finest bikes, but the calls of Ares, Ares, and the Ares crowd are enough to see you want to ride the nearest ditch.
Bring in a training section to understand the whole game and a full-fledged rider and team editor that won’t appeal to anyone but the most enthusiastic bike riding nuts. TDF2021 passes under it. Finishing arch as Lantern Rouge.
If you’re coming to the Tour de France 2021 and looking for the right bike racer to recreate the real Grand Tour, this isn’t the right game for you. And unfortunately, it’s hard to know how this franchise can start to appeal in the future unless the people behind it take the season to prepare for the future. That said, especially in Pro Leader and Pro Team modes, there’s a bit of fun from micromanagement of the race team. Therefore, if you are more interested in facts and statistics than in actual riding, a little time with the Tour de France 2021.
