Pro Cycling Manager
We've All Experienced cycling in some form, be it an unsuccessful drunken midnight trip down to your local all-night garage on your sister's bike, or a shortlived alternative to the morning commute. It's something that most of us have in common. It's also great fun if you can be arsed doing it. However, travelling between two distant and arbitrary locations in mostly straight lines isn't fun. Less fun is managing people who travel between these locations in mostly straight lines.
Just below this point on the scale of fun we find Pro Cycling Manager. The game places you in charge of a top professional cycling team and challenges you to lead them to success by analysing how well they cycle on cobblestones and what they've eaten for breakfast.
After wading through screen after screen of bafflingly detailed statistics and pretending to understand it all, the concept of actually seeing a bunch of bike-riding Europeans in tight lycra sweat for several hundred kilometres becomes almost too exciting.
Pretty soon though, it becomes apparent that, sadly, it's not exciting at all, and that ordering one of your riders to drink some water is possibly the most boring thing a left mouse button has ever done. Only die-hard cycling enthusiasts could garner any enjoyment frorii this game. It's bland, vaguely interactive and utterly confusing.
