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. The European Truck Racing Championship is one of the most spectacular and challenging motor racing competitions.The driving difficulty and many unique race features have been faithfully reproduced with the KT Engine (WRC).
The FIA European Truck Racing Championship has landed with a colossal thud and features 45 trucks in their official livery, 14 circuits across two continents and a huge line-up of licensed real-life drivers. As a refreshing change from the usual car-based racing games, it seems like a promising proposition.
Nevertheless, many races later, with European and World Series titles tucked firmly under my belt, I now consider myself not only a master of the truck racing world, but a converted fan of the most recent sim-cade racing title to arrive on Xbox One.
Besides the punishments though, the racing experience does feel rather good. The weight of the trucks is portrayed fantastically as you tear around each corner and into the apex, with the camera allowing for multiple viewing angles, including a cockpit viewpoint which is pretty decent. Further, the A.I. opponents do a fantastic job of keeping a competitive edge on things, with the pack breaking away towards the end of a race and often challenging the player to keep ahead of things right from the off.
Racing games have been popular for a while now. Usually, there are cars, motorbikes, karts, and bicycle races but recently a new game was released that adds a different vehicle to the mix. Truck racing is an actual existing sport but now it is also available in the form of a racing game. FIA European Truck Racing Championship gives you the ability to race in big cool looking trucks on known circuits around the world. The Belgian Circuit Zolder is also included what we as a Belgian site, of course, like to see. FIA European Truck Racing Championship was developed by N-RACING and published by Bigben Interactive and we got a chance to review the game.
The music in FIA European Truck Racing The Championship is very upbeat to get you pumped up for cool trucks. There is no music while racing which seems a bit odd. It might be so you hear the sounds of the trucks better, but it feels odd that there is no background music at all. There are mostly the few tracks of the menu. Accelerating with the truck does sound nice, as well as the breaking sound. Bumping or crashing into other drivers does not sound as satisfying as you would imagine two trucks colliding would sound.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship also offers multiplayer. There you can play split-screen with a friend locally, join or create a lobby, and use Quick Play to randomly join an already made lobby. If you do manage to make all the tests of the Career mode in single player. You can play championships, manage a team and have a calendar filled with events you can compete in. You will earn money to then repair your truck and pay your team while winning championships or seasons. 2b1af7f3a8
