Tour De France 2024 offers an official license, enhancing its authenticity for fans. The game boasts a range of display settings, including dynamic profiles and trajectory displays, which contribute to an immersive experience. Accessibility options are comprehensive, with customizable subtitles and icon settings. Gameplay settings are user-friendly, with auto-save features and a pause auto fast-forward option for convenience.

The tutorial is broken down into manageable parts and is optional, catering to both new and experienced players. The online manual provides in-depth control guidance and helpful tips. Controls are initially daunting but prove to be intuitive.

With five game modes, including Race, Pro team, Pro leader, Club tour, and Training, there’s plenty of variety. The Pro leader mode allows for player creation and goal completion for progression, while Pro team mode offers a full simulation experience with team management.

Online leaderboards add a competitive edge, and full commentary throughout events enhances the realism. The HUD is clear, with essential information like stamina and attack bars prominently displayed. The game also features experience points to unlock new content, regular auto-saves, multiple views including first-person, and a racing line option for braking assistance.

Wind dynamics affect gameplay realistically, and feed items chosen before races add strategic depth. The ability to save mid-race, give commands to teammates, and swap between riders offers tactical flexibility.

Despite its strengths, Tour De France 2024 has areas needing improvement. There’s no hit detection; riders can phase through each other without consequence. Minor collisions result in disproportionate slowdowns. The absence of online play limits multiplayer options.

Controls cannot be remapped, which may frustrate some players. The online-only manual is inaccessible to offline players without an internet connection. The game may not be as welcoming to newcomers due to its complexity.

Handling can feel stiff, and gameplay often feels slow even when using the fast-forward feature. The tutorial presents challenges that might deter beginners. Team command menus are obtrusive and can overwhelm the screen during races.

There’s a lack of variety in gameplay elements over time. Commentary can be sporadic and repetitive.

Overall Tour De France 2024 is a game crafted with fans in mind, offering a richly detailed cycling simulation with various modes and strategic elements. While it excels in authenticity and depth, it falls short in accessibility for new players and could benefit from improved collision mechanics and more dynamic commentary. Despite these drawbacks, it remains a solid choice for enthusiasts looking for an immersive Tour De France experience.
