As far as sports manager simulators go, only Football Manager is better. I am not particularly interested in cycling, but my basic understanding of the sport is enough for me to enjoy the tactics and strategies needed in this game. It is not very challenging unless you make it hard for yourself, but the management aspect is nice and the race tactics are fun. 2012 might not be worth a purchase if you own 2011 though.

The scenarios of each race, despite their extreme beauty and rely on several different stages, could also have greater variations: some races seem to occur in places much like the other, and given the size of the game and his style, I am sure that this element could have been better worked by developer. Either way though, this is a great game. A great simulator.
Conclusion Pro Cycling Manager 2012 is a simulator that offers a unique experience, allowing the player to deal with diverse and deep technical aspects and also participate in exciting races in scenarios endowed with great beauty. The title does not spare the player when it comes to details, but also gratifies fantastically during each of the races, which are both spectacle and more opportunity for experimentation and testing.
