The only official simulation that features all the unique characteristics of the ETRC and offers all racing fans a completely new driving experience: race a giant 5-tonne, 1,000-horsepower truck against 12 competitors while respecting the race rules to avoid penalties.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship is also available on XBox One.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship is a surprisingly good racer, though it’s not going to appeal to all due to the fact that it’s about racing big heavy trucks rather than the latest sports cars. Still, for those seeking something a little bit different, it’s definitely worth investigating. I wouldn’t say it does anything spectacularly well, but when there’s nothing else quite like it available, it doesn’t matter all that much.
Despite some aggressive AI and an unforgiving penalty system, FIA European Truck Racing Championship is a solid and highly enjoyable racing sim.
The penalty system, plus the capricious AI is quickly frustrating but FIA European Truck Racing Championship has many qualities that may speak to the racing truck fans.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship is between arcade and simulation, and this is synthesize the pro and cons of the game. Physics and AI aren't good, but the driving feeling is correct.
All things considered, at $40, it’s hard for me to truly recommend FIA European Truck Racing Championship unless you happen to be a big fan of titles like American Truck Simulator/ European Truck Simulator 2. But, if super-fast racing is more your style, you’re headed down the wrong road in this case.
These truck races don’t know whether they’re an arcade game or a simulation, but one thing is certain: While the singleplayer career is good, the multiplayer component is a total mess.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship is largely a kit-assembled experience whose developer seems OK with the stopping point it reached. It’s good that N-1 Racing showed so much attention to the racing action itself, because it’s obvious the studio couldn’t give much to anything else.
