The Cycling Manager series, considered one of the best sport sims in today's video game market, is scaling new heights with its latest opus : Pro Cycling Manager.
Pro Cycling Manager takes the series to a whole new level by its use of the most recent graphic engine technology. Thanks to the Gamebryo engine the game offers even more true-to-life graphics and animations. The scenery is wider, richer and far more detailed. Mountains, sea, lakes, thick forests and a wide variety of weather effects (to which must be added numerous ecstatic spectators along the road) all go to strengthen the reality of the game and increase immersion, thus assuring that gamers will certainly be in for an eyeful throughout the hundreds of 3D real-time races.
Many new features have also been added to the Pro Cycling Manager package, notably a long-awaited stage editor; an experience points system that will enable a gamer/manager to improve his managerial skills as his career evolves; a semi-persistent multiplayer mode that will allow gamers to play on-line in career mode on a dedicated server, .... and much more besides !
In all, Pro Cycling Manager offers close to 1500 riders, 43 teams, more than 20 major events on the cycling calendar (spring and autumn classics as well as all the major tours) plus dozens of lesser events and more than 450 full 3D stages.
The gamer/manager certainly has a full season!
