Tour de France 2022

In the peloton with Jonas Vingegaard.

Tour de France 2022 takes you beyond the route of the “Big Loop” to take in the Paris-Roubaix, Liége-Bastogne and Milan-San Remo Classics, not to mention the Critérium du Dauphiné and Paris-Nice. You’ll be directly managing a team or racer and you can even play in first-person, as if you were right there in the saddle in the heat of the peloton.

Enjoy a good bike ride? Dream of beating the greatest sprinters or reaching the Champs Elysées with the polkadot jersey on your back? Well, this is the game for you!

Tour de France 2022 is a huge leap froward from the 2020 version.

The environments might be much the same, but this year's game features some much-improved AI for a better racing experience. The result? Racer behaviour that is much more realistic, from breakaway through to the attack.

We loved the game's vast content: the most famous racers – names like Tadej Pogacar, Mathieu van der Poel, Wout van Aert, Primoz Roglic and David Gaudu – are all there across the 92 available stages, including the 21 official stages of the Tour de France in 2022, the Critérium du Dauphiné, the Paris-Nice, the Euro-Tour, the Open-Tour, the Trois Jours de Provence, the Breizh Cup, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the Tour of Flanders… not to mention the Prima Classica, or the Milan-San Remo, one of the new additions to this year's game.

Every team under the World Tour licence are here (apart from Quickstep) with three newcomers: Eolo-Kometa Cycling Team, Caja Rural-Seguros RGA, and Uno-X Pro Cycling Team.

When it comes to game modes, there's a tutorial that does a good job of getting you in the saddle, and you can select different views to experience the race from amidst the peloton or as you would see it on TV. Here at Blacknut, it was the first-person view that gave the most exciting experience, making you feel like you're right there on the tarmac as the countryside zooms past. You can even feel the cobblestones!

We loved The race incidents new to this year's game. Players can now choose to turn on or customize the race incidents, from falls to illness. You can even choose the fitness of the other racers, with a prep option that gives a random five racers a boost at the start of the leg, and leaves five others in not quite such rude form. There's even an illness option!

We loved: the MyTour mode that lets you create your own formulation of the Big Loop, including rest days. This means that you can have a blast by creating a 100% mountain event, for example... and because you can even change the racers' stats, there's no limit to your imagination!

Our tip: try to lodge yourself by the back wheel of one of the group's leaders. One you're there, you'll be in their slipstream and use less energy, but you'll need to be ready for the right moment to launch your breakaway or sprint if you're to steal a few points for that polka-dot jersey or latch on to a breakaway group.

Tour de France 2022 is a great game, and popular with all fans of bike sims.
