Leave – Tour de France 2017 – 60% off – £16.00
Another year and we another game failing to replicate the true Tour de France experience. If you’re a fan of the annual multi-stage race and want to get into the spirit of things once more, we suggest you head back to the highlights.
From the terrible sound to the rehashed visuals, and the same old tedious cycling gameplay that we’ve seen year after year, there are many reasons to avoid picking this up. Not to mention it’s still going to cost you a ton more than some of the other fantastic deals you can grab this week.
Maybe next year the Tour de France game will be worth a look? Or maybe not. History proves the latter is more likely and Tour de France 2017 isn’t great.
