Having played previous Pro Cycling Manager games I was always going to buy the latest instalment. This year's edition improved on past years components and added a fair amount of new features.

The first thing I noticed was the new home screen at the beginning, not a huge difference but it looks nice and makes it easy to navigate and find game modes as such. Multiplayer (Armdada) has been improved as well; A track mode has been added (For Armada) and you can now play stage races with your own teams which was missing from last year's game. The career mode as well has been altered. This year if you are to build a custom team you have a virtually unlimited budget but your team's level (UCI World Tour, Pro Continental or Continental) is determined by how much you spend. You are also allowed unlimited reports on youth riders but this comes at a financial cost.

When you are into the career you will notice that there has been a change in how you receive money in the game. Usually you earn money from winning races in prize money however this year you get money from nailing targets your sponsors give you. This can be frustrating as they may give you tasks which are unrealistic. An example: I had a continental team and was asked to win Omloop Het Niewsblad. Not only did I have no strong classics riders, but I was facing up against Cancellara and Boonen and worst of all, I couldn't even get an entry into the event through a wild card! Even though you can ask to scale down these assignments to aim to achieve a top 10 ranking or so but the amount of money you gain is heavily cut.

In the actual races there has been a graphical overhaul, the shirt quality of the riders has been improved (you can make out the writing and sponsors easily) and there have many new items added (useful for stage building). Some licenses are missing (BMC shirt & Sky and OPQS names) however these can be addressed via the community made databases - the most notable and impressive one being from PCMdaily.

The in-game mechanics have also changed, breakaways are now more likely to stay away which makes the game more challenging and in some cases more realistic. It is still feasible to chase back an escape although it will require more man power and help from the rest of the peleton. In my opinion though, the best changes have been those to the animations and accelerations of the riders. In previous years riders would look the same no matter their speed. The new animations have made the game seem more realistic as you can see when other riders are struggling or putting in a higher effort. Also, the acceleration stat now does mean acceleration and will determine how quickly your sprinter or climber attacks.

Finally, I must add that this game is not really for non cycling fans who are are unaware of what lies beyond and before the Tour de France however a tutorial could address this problem.

TL;DR:

PROS
- Strong animations
- Graphical Overhaul
- Armada improved
- In game mechanics improved

CONS
- Career mode can be frustrating
- Still bugs in places

I recommend this under three conditions:
1) You are a cycling fan or bike racers.
2) You are looking for a casual game.
3) You enjoy strategy games.

I bought this game on the basis of many other reviews recommending it for the game managing fanatics or die-hard cycling fans. I fall into the latter category. I've never played any management game so it was a steep learning curve trying to grasp the plethora of elements in PCM2013. As most games you would think there would be a tutorial mode, or some sort of introductory gameplay that eases you into each facet of the game one by one. There is none of that and you're literally dumped into an ocean of numbers. After investing many painstaking hours into career mode I still couldn't juggle all the variables it presented and left me quite frustrated. It has been said before, but the game is not targeted toward mainstream gamers and i feel even if you do perservere and climb past that very long and difficult learning curve, it isn't rewarding unless you truly are a fan of this particular genre and/or cycling.

If your dream is to manage a cycling team this is the ♥♥♥♥. However if your not this still provides a gripping manager experinece especially when some cheeky riders refuse to do ♥♥♥♥. My god the stress is real. The 13 hours I spent manageing 'Duck Pro Cycling' were the most exciting and also terrifying experince of my life. This game is a true roller coaster ride of emotions.

Great Game for Cycling Fans. There is a really helpful online community. Not great if you do not understand road cycling.

Ignore the fools who dismiss it without even playing it.

It's got a reasonably detailed management part (which needs a lot of patience and micromanagement to fully enjoy) and a working knowledge of/enthusiasm for cycling racing. Picture a rougher-round-the-edges version of Football Manager, handling training, team and rider objectives and contracts etc. Then jump into the races (hundreds of different races in Career mode, most with real courses) in 3D and direct the riders - it's unusual and great; it's been described as a sports RTS.

Loads of different challenges, big teams with the better riders will push for the top positions in maybe the great classic one day races or the epic challenge of winning the overall in the bigger tours, smaller teams will fight for victory in minor races or just go for lesser objectives in big races (e.g. win one stage, wear the points or mountain jersey etc).

The game is supported by a superb community who produce great content and improve it no-end and help newcomers, as there are lots of aspects which need explanation!

Under-rated and brilliant. Just learn the basics of the sport first and perservere!

This game continues with many of the features that have been entering the game in past few years.

One of the major changes in this game is that you need to contract with sponsors to maintain your team.
This being that your team (and all other teams) change each year, possibly even 5times in 5 years, this change increases the game play in my opinion.

other than that the community updates and modifications upgrade the game greatly by adding a larger number of teams, variants and the like.

of course there is always the occassional result which is unlikely to happen (such as a 55mountain climber winning major mountain stages).

overall this game series improves each year.

PCM is a great game with a lot of detail and content. It's much better than the Playstation game but it does lag a lot. However, the online is great (Armarda), so you can play with your friends with Armarda or with other rider databases. Overall, great game but very addictive

i dislike the manager part of the game, but enjoy the multiplayer races which involve more strategy and less skill than say, a car racing game.

a multiplayer racing game for them times when you want to chill out but still have some fun racing a mate.

DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU DO NOT ENJOY STEEP LEARNING CURVES!

As various other reviews mention, this game is not particularly friendly to those new to management games. As a casual cyclist I understand some of the elements presented in this game, however there is virtually nothing in the way of tutorials. Once you press "start", you are literally plummeted into a sea of numbers and dates. Factor into this equation a clunky, complicated navigation system, and you have yourself a very frustrating experience.

I will give this another go, but not until I have more time to spend hours reading through online tutorials and attempting several experimental playthroughs. Not for the casual gamer.

2/5 at this point in time.

Worst game in history! you just spend a lot of time organising races and when you finally get a race, you just watch the bloody thing... this isnt a game. its a joke... i was expecting a game where you actually race, earn cash and upgrade your bike as a cyclist. like a need for speed style game but biking. that would make a good game. this really doesnt. highly unreccomended!

Game crashes randomly when trying to load 3D races. Very frustrating. Don't waste your money.
