From my hours count you can see how I actually love this game (and I bought 12 and 13 versions...).

And this is really sad for me to say this: DON'T BUY THIS GAME.

Or don't buy it again...

The problem isn't if this is the best cycling simulation game (for what it's worth, it's also the only...), but if this game is worth is price.

The answer is NO.

For the last 4 years the game is remaneid actually pretty the same: some new graphic, some new features and some solved bugs.

And today?
- The new features are often broken or bugged, you often have to buy the NEW YEAR version to have them working, because the patches are often very modest and don't change much of the gameplay.
- The sim engine (3D race and fast sim, there was only a most advanced fast sim, and this was so bugged they decided to remove it rather than improve it...) hasn't changed a lot, quality talking. Same bug, and some modest new features.
- The game engine is the ALWAYS THE SAME, and have the same bugs.

Bugs? During season preparation, I usually go forward and save every 2 or 3 minutes, because, the game crash.
How often it crash?
During a season?
From 20 to 40 times.

I'm not kidding, and I'm talking of TOTAL CRASHES.

This is frankly unacceptable, in my opinion.
And all the three last games of this series crashes for the same bugs.
They've never be addressed.

Now, as I said, I really like this game, I will continue to play it, but no, I WILL NOT BUY THE NEXT YEAR VERSION.

Because it's pointless, I don't pay 4 times a bunch of euros (many, because this is sold like a AAA game) for have ALWAYS THE SAME STUPID PROBLEMS AND NOTHING NEW.

Be aware...

I feel PCM has grown quite a lot since the original game, and I especially feel like this latest version has made leaps in terms of sponsors and equipment. The only problem is still the lack of change over the years, the stages and races should not be the same each year, in my opinion.

Having been an avid player of this series since 2004, I had to buy this one.
It has seen some big improvements on the 2013 iteration (especially the team name changes).
The 3d game mode hasn't really seen much of a improvment (though that doesn't really bother me).

Though, if you are not really a fan of cycling, this game will probably not intrest you.

Finger weg von dem Teil , es ist unspielbar. Selten habe ich ein Spiel mit so vielen Bugs gesehen . Man hat ständig Abstürze , teilweise wild gestreut teilweise immer an der selben Stelle . Sehr schön ist auch der Ausfall der Tastatur mitten im Rennen , da kann man dann fast nur zugucken wie die eigenen Fahrer als letzte ins Ziel trudeln .
Wenn man es schafft sich eine gewisse Zeit im Spiel zu halten ( und damit etliche Stunden zugebracht hat ) und das nächste mal einen gespeicherten Spielstand laden möchte erhällt man die Meldung " Game Over " .
Wenn man dann echt angepi-sst ist und Steam um Geldrückgabe bittet , wird man an Cyanide verwiesen . Mit denen kann ich aber leider keinen Kontakt aufnehmen wiel diese nur auf französisch kommunizieren ( sowohl auf der homepage als auch in E-mails ).
also bedanke ich mich hrzlich bei Steam und Cyanide , das ihr mich so schön verar-scht habt . Danke

In epischer Breite gibt es ein Review bei GameExperience, hier schon mal das Fazit zu dieser unterschätzten Hardcore-Simulations-Perle:
http://www.gameexperience.de/2014/06/pro-cycling-manager-2014-kritik-angespielt/

"Der Pro Cycling Manager 2014 ist ein mehr als würdiger Vertreter der Serie. Optisch ist er ganz weit vorne dabei, was für die 3D-Rennen wie auch die Menüs gilt und spielerisch zeigt er sich durch die Automatisierungsmöglichkeiten erfreulich verbessert. Die Rennen lassen sich taktisch gesehen hervorragend beim Start vorausplanen und sind jederzeit variabel steuerbar. Wer will, kann sein Team aggressiv fahren lassen, etwa durch automatisierte Angriffe in den Bergen und es jederzeit gut sein lassen, wenn sich die Strategie nicht als optimal erwiesen hat. Ich nutze die Möglichkeiten zum automatisieren Fahren vor allem bei den Mitläufern und Wasserträgern und freue mich darüber, deswegen die Stars besser im Blick zu haben. Diese Freiheiten nehme ich mir und das kann jeder Teamchef und Manager halten, wie er lustig ist. Das gefällt mir. Und, ganz positiv: Einfacher wird das Spiel dadurch nicht. Nicht nur bei den 3D-Rennen, sondern insgesamt. Nur wer seine Saison akribisch plant und die Stärken und Schwächen von Fahrern und Team im Blick hat, wird erfolgreich sein können. Gerade ab dem mittlerem Schwierigkeitsgrad entwickelt sich der Pro Cycling Manager 2014 zu einer wahren Herausforderung, die nur der nachvollziehen kann, der diese Serie liebt. Und wenn dann im Rennen selbst alles wie am Schnürchen läuft, das Team glänzt und die frickelige und harte Arbeit seinen Sinn hatte, weil ein Rädchen ins andere greift, dann glänzt dieses Managerspiel."

Improved since last year? Ohh yes :D

- The menus are much better now.
- Riders orders in races have improved alot.
- You can even set the riders to auto so they follow a strategy that you can setup before and under the race. (sprint for mountain/sprints/stage victory or defend leaders jersey etc.)
- Realistic equiptment sponsors thats allow you to determin the R&D in their frame and wheels!! Riding them in races will speed up the testing process, like in real life :D
- Price money is back in a minor scale.

Generally I have the last couple of year been alittle disapointed in the improvements of PCM and the pricing for that upgrade wasnt worth it, but I can tell you, this year it is.

You have done a great job this year Cyanside! :-)

9/10

Note: The general gameplay is much as you know it, but I think all the small improvements they made in this years edition, makes it proberly one of the most realistic and best PCM I have ever played..

Note: Played them all :-)


UPDATED 28/6 2014 ----------------------------- BELOW ----------------------------------

Now the time have come to liste some of the bad stuff I have experienced lately.
- Click on rider with the mouse in races, does not always work. Sometimes you have to use the keyboard back/forward key or use multiple clicks around, before it works..
- Making a train with your sprinter in the last position, is a pain in the ♥♥♥. Its always the sprinter that gets dropped and none of the other riders in the train.. Wierd..
- No more race-reports after a simulated race. Did the riders do, what I ordered them too? I have no idea.. Only a result list to look at.
- Few rider crashes. No point in keeping your leader in the front of the pack, if mass crashes never happens/exits.

Now some good stuff.
- Stable game. Only got a failure a couple of time when loading a stage.. Nothing serius, as the game was loaded back in no time and game remembered the line-up for the race. (Remember to update drivers)
- Breakaways have a fair chance of getting a stage win.

As I wrote in the "first review", I still recommend the 2014 edition of PCM, but I must change the rating to 8/10 untill the "mouse clicking" / "sprinter train" mentioned above is fixed, hopefully in a patch in the near future.

Making an update to the review since I've been able to play the game more and see more details.

Below are my general feelings about the game.

Positive:
* Graphics are improved and quite good.
* Gameplay is nice.
* Different skill levels to make it easier for casual gamers.

Negative:
* Game crashes alot (Like around every second race - this is also reported by others)
* Major bug at August 2015 which makes the game crash. According to developer this means you have to start a new career once the bug fix is implemented in order to proceed. The bug fix has not been implemented yet( Ref: http://www.cyanide-studio.com/forumPCM/viewtopic.php?f=123&t=16550)
* The loading of races are really slow, even on quite decent computers.
* The sorting of players lacks several options to find the correct riders. For example tring to find the best riders without a contract at a certain age is from what I see really difficult to do.
* A bit difficult to find things like training, training progress etc until you are used to the game.
* For the games current state and in general, 39.99 EUR is very expensive.

Minor negative things:
* If you change screen resolution you have to manually exit the game, and then start up. Quite annoying when trying to find the correct resolution as this takes alot of time.
* The change of volume from minimum to maximum is done by holding down a minus button for a long long long time. This must be done for each of the 3 volume options from 100-0. It does not speed up while holding down the button. Instead of adding a slider and a mute button, it's only possible by holding down these buttons 1 by 1.

Conclusion:
I'de recommend the game if you are a hardcore cycling fan and can survive crashes and some annoyence. However if you haven't played any of the games before it might be worthwhile first to buy an earlier patched up version. In it's current state the game now is not in my opinion all completed. Still it's great fun to play the game when it's working. It might be worthwhile to buy an older cheaper version first to see if you like the game before you pay 39.99 EUR.

I haven't played this series since PCM 2009, while I hardly remember some of the features from PCM2009, I can say with confidence that PCM 2014 has a few items that can draw the player into the game - but there are other items that will draw you away. For one let's highlight the positive mechanics that I found in the game:

Beautiful graphics
Relatively clean interface and menu
Somewhat of a comprehensive tutorial
Great in game commands
R&D feature was a step in the right direction

Some negatives:

Cluttered inbox, you'll get mail from a bunch of miscellaneous events that don't impact or pretain to your current game which I would just simply classify as spam
(Something minor which can be easily fixed by zero'ing off the "announcer/commentator under sound options) But the announcer sounds cheesy as hell, I don't even think ESPN announcers sound that bad.
If you haven't played PCM before, the tutorial might not be enough to properly introduce the game to you. There are many screens on the UI (not as bad as football manager!), it wil take some time to get used to it all.
A few minor graphical glitches during the race that don't impact the quality of the game (cars driving through the race formation, racers "ghosting" through each other)

It's hard to say what exactly needs patching as of right now, my first race was fine and I didn't encounter anything wild that needs to be addressed immediately. I would recommend this game to someone who is interested in cycling or management of cycling teams. would buy again 10/10.

in its current state (version 1.1.0.1), it is not worth buying. ive only had a few hours of playtime, had several crashes, and have run into multiple bugs, one of them being that im completely locked out of multiplayer.
asking for support on their official forums if you dont speak french is also a completely pointless pursuit, since their staff does not speak enough english to provide assistance. case in point, i was told to "Please send your PCM14 to the technical support for investigation: support[at]focus-home.com", i still havent figured out if they want me to send them the client files, or whatever. on top of that, i was told this by a staffmember in their own technical support forums, which is where you're supposed to go for technical support.
there's several other gamebreaking issues i havent run into yet since i havent kept the game from crashing long enough.
buyer beware, do not buy this game yet, unless you really love cycling, and for everyone else. check the latest patch, if it hasnt been updated from 1.1.0.1. its unplayable.

Here are the people who would like this game: those who adore European cycling industry and have a favorite rider and those who enjoy large-scale, ultri-micromanagement spreadsheet games.

This is like Madden's franchise mode... on crack.

Compared to last year, so far I've noticed that the problems with buildings spawning on roads seem to be resolved. Also, the graphical user interface has been upgraded, though sometimes the words end up hidden behind the buttons.

I really wish this game had multiple simulators -- a lightweight, a middleweight, and this heavyweight version. I have little interest in R&D and appeasing sponsors on a daily basis.

This is a simulation game where every day takes 10-15 minutes to check all the numbers and then move on to the next day. But all told, I still like it. But then again, I'm a big ol' nerd.

At the current state I can't recommend this game, because it is full of bugs. When you go to play it as a management game, there are many points in the game which don't work properly. It seems that it is just developed and never been tested before. I played only two full seasons and came to a point where it was impossible to go on, because of a bug.

I had something to submit which was impossible to submit (endless loop with no way out). And I'm not the kind of person who stops playing as the first bug occurs. There were many before (small and big ones) and I went on playing.

I hope the next patches (if some come) will bring solutions and maybe the game is worth its money. Especially on Steam are so many alpha and pre alpha games which have far less bugs than this piece of ♥♥♥♥.

Do NOT buy this game if you hate starting all over again and again.

This game crashes a LOT. That is not a problem BC it has a autosave function. Well. Guess again. You cannot save yourself and if the game crashes during a day shift, you loose your autosave, so you need to start all over again.

The game itself is great. It's a good game with nice graphics, but as long as it crashes and looses the autosave, then it is not worth buying. Wait for a fix!

Does it worth 40 euros ?

NO

Usually i don't get emotional and write comments, reviews , etc... this is my first review.
But this game is a mess. And it's 40 euros.

Why?

1. It crashes . A lot : in menus , or before the 3D race, or... after the race. Take a pick.

2. Where is the SAVE button ?!? Because i think i need it , when the game is randomly crashing in menus / career mode. I've spend 45 minutes setting my team races , traing , etc... and boom . Crash to desktop. Did it save ? Well .. not everything. Do it again. Crash to desktop , in menus. Do it again. I have started a career 3 hours ago, and i didnt play one 3D race. NOT a single one, because i keep setting up stuff that gets lost during crashes.

3. Menus / Lists / Relational Lists : NOT user friendly. Do you want to see one rider objectives related to the squad objectives and/or sponsors objectives? Well...you can't ! Write it down, use a paper and a pen... or do a print screen , etc.
Do you want to set a sponsor objective to a specific rider , because you know...training depends on objectives...well, look it up in a drop down list. What's that race name ? You wrote it down , yes ?! Good... because the drop down list has some other filters, sucker ! Like UCI codes. What code does this race have ? You didnt write it down ?! Go back...

And more , and more like this.

IMHO , do not buy this game until it is properly patched and with UI redesigned . Go have some fun with 40 euros , dont buy this mess

This could be a very good game. Graphically it is an improvement on PCM13. BUT I have never come across a more fragile game. The problems begin when you want to play through a 3D race. There appears to be a 50% chance that the game crash before you get race (if you click on the mouse while the race is initialising then it crashes almost every time). Once you manage to get into race everything is fine, but as soon as you get to the podiums more often than not it will crash at that point. AVOID. If you choose to buy this game expect to run through a needlessly long game boot sequence far to often.
