Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game
Every single place I turn I hear something
about Le Tour de France. So it makes sense to have video games come out
at the same time. Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game on the iPad,
iPhone/iPod Touch is an interesting mix of action and strategy. You are
not going to be able to tap really fast to constantly run your race team
as fast as you want them to go. They will tire out. I learned this
mainly because I am the kind who will try and power through. This tired
my team out the first time I tried it. There is a certain skill to the
Le Tour de France.
The riders animate at a decent rate. The details of the racers is okay. I would have expected better personally, and many of them look the same. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a code for the iPad. So we had certain expectations going into this hand held video game. I enjoyed the various menu screens which included some great color choices.
The music on the menu screens of Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game fits the theme of this game. The sounds are not as prevalent while the players are racing. I did not hear any offensive sounds while playing Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game. Winning stages in Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game brings some excitement. Not at the level of the real event, but I would not expect it to.
There are enough levels in Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game to keep most gamers busy for a few weeks. Odds are you will not be able to win every single stage on the first try. I know it took me multiple tries to find who in my team was good at what. Speaking of that part of the joy of Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game is building your own team. This helped me learn about the sport of cycling.
I have mentioned that strategy is a large part of Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game. The amount of strategy is deeper than I was expecting in an app. But then apps continue to grow and mature in terms of depth. Button press is needed when the riders are going up a hill. Managing more than one person at a time took some getting used to. Once I did though I found how much fun this game can be.
Cycling is one of those sports that has never received a lot of recognition in America. We like our football, baseball, and basketball. The athletes in Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game are some of the most intense on the planet. They do things that I could only dream of. Le Tour de France 2011 The Official Game is one of those games that can bring additional attention to this sport. It has me interested in going for a bike ride. And that is a good thing.
