Tour De France 2022 Game Review

The Tour de France is the most famous cycling race on the planet. And with each passing year, it appears to grow in popularity, with more people taking an interest in the action than ever. So, with that in mind, there is a new video game out in its honor, and it could prove to be fun to play.

Everyone knows that when competing in the Tour de France, the aim of the game is to be the rider wearing the iconic yellow jersey. And this is evidenced by the in-depth analysis of the Tour de France in terms of predictions and betting that is widely available, in the main, honing in on who will be wearing the prestigious yellow jacket come to the end of the race.

The first port of call, primarily for a Tour de France game, is to be an official title, which Tour de France 2022 is. So, immediately it’s a game that will draw in players for this reason alone. People naturally trust an official product over an unofficial release.

And, everyone knows that with an official game, all the relevant licenses will be in place to use likenesses and names not just of riders and teams but of stages and locations too.

Tour de France 2022 is also an accessible title, as it’s available to play on console and PC, and there will be no compromise on quality regardless of the device in use. It brings us nicely to our next point about this Cyanide Studio-developed game that Nacon has published, and that’s that visually the title is incredibly impressive.

But, in this day and age, you could argue that this should always be the case. When playing Tour de France 2022 in single-player mode, also known as solo, there are ninety-two different stages to explore and race through. And of course, because they’re real-life locations, they’ve got to look the part, especially if they include famous landmarks.

As players take control of their careers in solo mode, what we also like is the inclusion of injuries and illnesses. What you kind of expect from a sports game, especially an official one, is a realistic representation across the board where possible.

We have seen it with other games such as EA Sports’ FIFA series over the years. The same rule applies here, and that’s that realism is a massive priority.

There is also recognition of how popular online gaming has become. So, there is online play available in Tour de France 2022. The online mode offers a different way to enjoy the Tour de France experience, as there will be challenges updated weekly and a leaderboard that shows who is in line for the yellow jersey.

All in all, Tour de France 2022 gets the thumbs up. It’s the first official game representing the iconic race, and the title has all the bases covered in terms of solo play and online game modes.

    It should be well received and will likely increase the attention that the Tour de France generates as well as hopefully other events like the Canadian Grands Prix, which is great for the sport.
