Tour de France 2022 Reviews
With such little visual variety, though, there’s not much to differentiate the various stages – and, as alluded to previously, you’ll spend the vast majority of your time fast-forwarding to key moments anyway. It’s all an acquired taste, which is perhaps best reflected by the minuscule budget invested into the series overall. Still, cycling enthusiasts may find something to enjoy in the unique, tactical gameplay, which is all about picking your moments and pedalling like there’s no tomorrow.
Those who did not play last year's game should not be deterred from giving Tour de France 2022 a shot. Though the graphics and animations may be a little outdated, the mechanics and how to best employ them on the course do an admirable job of recreating the strategy of cycling. The races may be long if you insist on experiencing every second of them, but the option to fast forward through sections helps immensely when the course starts to feel redundant and interminable. Anyone who did spend some playing Tour de France 2021 though is likely to be disappointed by how light this game is on new content, unless they happen to be a huge cycling fan who absolutely needs to be able to play the real route of this year's upcoming tour.
The gameplay and racing in Tour de France 2022 has depth that reflects what makes bicycle racing feel different than other racing games. Unfortunately, those mechanics are buried inside a bare bones package that happily wastes your time.
You will enjoy the game if you are an undemanding player and know what to expect from the Tour de France 2022. But outdated graphics kill the user experience.

I am a cyclist and a cycling fan and yet again Tour de France 2022 has left me disappointed. This may be because I live in the cycling world so know about the nuances of racing and the differences between bikes, maybe a Zwift review should follow?!
Tour de France 2022 is left spinning up the steepest climb as the enthusiasm and energy fast drains away.
Cyanide brings us one more year the official game of the Tour de France. This 2022 suffers from an excess of continuity already carried over from previous installments. The formula, although it can delight the most enthusiastic followers of cycling, still has great shortcomings.
