About This Game

NEXT GENERATION RACING SIMULATOR
Assetto Corsa features an advanced DirectX 11 graphics engine that recreates an immersive environment, dynamic lighthing and realistic materials and surfaces. The advanced physics engine is being designed to provide a very realistic driving experience, including features and aspects of real cars, never seen on any other racing simulator such as tyre flat spots, heat cycles including graining and blistering, very advanced aerodynamic simulation with active movable aerodynamics parts controlled in real time by telemetry input channels, hybrid systems with kers and energy recovery simulation. Extremely detailed with single player and multiplayer options, exclusive licensed cars reproduced with the best accuracy possible, thanks to the official cooperation of Car Manufacturers.
ASSETTO CORSA has been developed at the KUNOS Simulazioni R&D office, located just inside the international racing circuit of Vallelunga, allowing the team to develop the game with the cooperation of real world racing drivers and racing teams.

LEGENDARY TRACKS
The circuits have been developed using Laser scan technology, in order to guarantee the highest level of accuracy possible in reproducing real world motor racing environments.
Monza, Silverstone, Imola, Mugello, Spa, Brands Hatch and many more tracks, including the historical reproduction of Monza, that brings again to life the legendary Sopraelevata, the high-speed oval where races were staged until 1961.

EXCLUSIVE CARS
The Assetto Corsa physics engine is all new, using practical knowledge acquired from working closely with the elite of motorsport in order to engineer the best possible accuracy of physics and tactility of feeling.
A physics engine like this begs to be used with officially licensed contents: Abarth, Audi, BMW, Classic Team Lotus, Ferrari, KTM, Lamborghini, Lotus cars, McLaren, Mercedes, Scuderia Glickenhaus, Pagani, Tatuus and many more!

HARDWARE COMPATIBILITY
Enjoy ASSETTO CORSA using any kind of game device: keyboard, joypad, joystick, steering wheels including any kind of professional device and the most common motion systems.
ASSETTO CORSA is also compatible and ready for triple monitor view, Track IR, 3D VISION and VR (WIP).

GAMEPLAY & FEATURES
Assetto Corsa includes a career mode, a list of special and unique events and challenges, as well as a fully customizable, single player and multiplayer modes featuring quick races, race weekends including free practice session, qualifying session and race. Drag races, drift challenges and much more! Four driving assist profiles (gamer, racer, pro, plus a fully-customizable profile) allow any kind of player to enjoy the simulation at their desired level.
Advanced setup options and telemetry for data analysis; dynamic simulation of the tyre rubber deposited on track, depending on the car laps; an adjustable time of the day mode, featuring sun position calculated in realtime, depending by geographical coordinates of the track and by the sun curve according to time and date, in order to get the same light conditions of the real tracks!

MODDING & CUSTOMIZATION
Assetto Corsa will allow for considerable customisation and modification, in order to satisfy the expectations of professional simracers, gamers who prefer to approach the driving experience more progressively, and hobbyists who just like to reproduce and share their cars and tracks, taking advantage of the same editing tools developed and used by the developers of the game.

Ignore my "time played" stats - I have reinstalled this game again within the last few days and I play offline.

I have played just about every decent PC driving/racing game since Geoff Crammonds GP4 and, until recently, I thought GTR2 was the most enjoyable driving/racing experience. AC is now King of the Simulators (the only game I have not tried is iRacing so that may be more of a simulation but it is too expensive and I play offline).

The moment I fired up AC and took my first drive I knew it was going to be sensational. I prefer the more natural graphics of AC than the hollywood style of PCars and you can not even compare RF2 or any other top tier racing game. I purchased a Thrustmaster T150 and, after some tweaking and advice from the internet regarding setup, I was in virtual heaven. I read comments stating that other users just enjoyed hotlapping and I thought that can't be much fun but it is a joy to choose a car and track combination and spend long hours trying to beat your personal best times. As an offfline player I was concerned about the reported AI behaviour but it clearly beats the manic AI drivers in PCars and is at least as good as R3E AI. Admittedly the AI in RF2 is probably still the best but unfortunately the graphics are not good enough to tempt me to play it for long periods of time.

Pros:

Excellent graphics (with PP enhancements)
Superb driving physics
Very good AI racing
Superb mod support (tracks, vehicles, sounds, apps, setups, graphics)
Ability to create custom championships

Cons:

I honestly can't think of any

In summary I have enjoyed this game so much that I deleted my PCars, RF2 (demo) and R3E (another excellent game but requires constant internet connection to play) as well as GTR2, RACE 07 and F1 2012. I could have kept these games on my hard drive but I know that i will be dedicating all of my time to AC so I deleted the other titles.

I do not play online and I am not particularly interested in night driving or even driving in the rain. Assetto Corsa caters for my personal preferrences and concentrates on getting the basics right - the excellent feeling of driving and racing high powered cars in exotic locations. I am 51 years old but I feel like I am rediscovering my passion for sim racing after all these years - buy this game you will not regret it for one minute.

The best racing sim. The wheel feels fairly natural and the game constantly gets better. The community is perpetually adding car and track mods and with Automation, one can design an engine there, and upload it to modded cars here. That is amazing. There is not another game that matches its presence of style. While unfinished, there isn't another game that seems as flawless as this.

Recent improvements are programming for the Occulus Rift, (and probably other Virtual Reality gear, {there is a nice selection of pre-programmed wheel arrangements already}), not to mention the artificial intelligence of the cpu opponents that has evolved to seem more like a real race experience. More camera angles to fit to your gaming setup than before, and in-game apps to improve the gameplay that until utilized, you'd hardly even notice was needed. There is much more done and in the works that I'm surely not remembering.

The only addition I'd want is to have an option to tweak cars like forza or project cars where there are more options to alter the vehicle to suite ones' wishes. That stuff feels a little like fluff though, (other game versions.) Assetto Corsa cars feel more authentic from the start, and some can be modified more than others. The cars seem so distinct from each other by how they drive alone, it makes perfect sence why some cars have been chosen to be in the line-up. More variety is almost always welcome, as long as it doesn't take away from the quality, which isn't lacking here.

Impossible to play coming from Arcade games thinking you won't ever spin out like NFS or Forza, keep dreaming if you think so. You will need dedication, practice, a wheel (for sure, this game is impossible with keyboard or controller), and a decent PC. Mod support on this game is quite good, graphics are pretty, physics are quite realistic, a decent enough selection of cars in the standard game. There's DLC as well if you can't get enough of Assetto Corsa. If you take your time to learn it you will enjoy this game for sure. I'll give my own score allthough I haven't played it a lot and I'm probably the worst driver ever.

7.5/10, would spin out again.

Very nice game people who like realistic sim racing. Assetto Corsa is probably the racing game you can get at the moment. The only tiny downside is the AI, its still not perfect to race against.

Great game, I would rate 9.5/10 :)

there's no night or rain racing like in other games but that's not a deal breaker. honestly one of the best racing games out there, the physics make the driving very engaging, visuals are great, pretty frequent updates, fantastic DLCs so far and an active modding community. probably the only criticism i hear is that it's just a glorified hot lap simulator but damn it's a pretty good one at that.

kudos to kunos, time spent with cats is never wasted.

The first thing that struck me about Assetto Corsa was the joy.
When I first played this, back in 2014, I cought myself playing a game with no AI, no goals, no fancy graphics, not great sounds either.

But I was smilling.

I was actually driving around in my newly bought Logitech Driving Force GT wheel, spinning off the track in every corner I came across and I still wasnt frustrated. I was enjoying every part of it, including the spinning out part.

Because it was the first game.. no.. sim, that made me feel like I was actually driving a car. That I was actually in control of a machine, a physical piece of metal and carbon fibre speeding over the warm tarmac.
I could feel the weight of the car shifting from corner to corner, the wheel rattling when I hit the curbs.
And I was surprised. Why, in all racing games and sims I've played before it havent I had that feeling?
I guess Assetto Corsa did something right.

And that was just the start.
2 years later and we have a load of new cars, tracks and features. We have AI Races, Drag races, drift challenges.
We have gone though 7 new tire simulations models, each one better than the previous one.

But still. I find myself still driving around, just me. No AI cars. No goals. Just pure driving.

And every time, it still makes me smile.
I guess Assetto Corsa is still doing something right.

Assetto Corsa is probably one of the best, if not THE best circuit racing simulator out there right now. If you have a good wheel and want to feel like you're actually racing exotic racecars on a track, this game is the best one out there.

Pro:
-Great Graphics
-Good Variety of cars
-Mod support
-Great community
-Playing Online
-Physics

Cons:
-Bad AI
-Buggy (Couldn't play single player for a good month because of a bug)
-Not enough content for the price
-Could be better optimized

I have to leave a review for this game. At first I was so frustrated about how tough it is to drive the cars so I decided to get a refund. For about a day, I did a lot of research to see if there is any other racing games out there worth considering, I ended up considering to buy Project cars or to re-buy assetto corsa. After watching a lot of reviews on YouTube comparing these two games I decided to re-buy assetto corsa, due to the positive reviews, and I absolutely don't regret that now. Yes, it takes patience and yes it requires practice but it's worth it all! After take the Pagani Zonda for a spin on the Spa, I finally understood what the experts are talking about when they speak about treating the car with tough love and drive it like you hate it, cause if you don't, the car will "bite" and you find yourself of the track within seconds
All in all, a very great game, that's absolutely worth recommending!

Many tracks and cars to choose from. Each will take you days to master.

Cons:

No global leaderboards? What century is this? (Mod available though)

The #1 racing sim in the world. No question.

Assetto Corsa is the best racing title I've played to date. It compelled me to buy a racing wheel and rig, and has opened the doors to Sim Racing for me. I'm not very good yet, but the depth, variety, and rewards have me coming back at least once a week for a taste.

I've spent a lot of time playing Assetto Corsa and it is without a doubt my favorite modern racing sim. There's not a lot I can say that hasn't been said already, but I do want to add that Kunos, the developer, has proved they are very committed to the long-term development of this game. Regular updates and upgrade and DLC packs make this game continually fresh, and the mod support is staggering. There's great sim racing communities around it. It really is a great sim, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Best car sim out there. Handling is spot on, and content is accurate. Lots of mods available... this is a driving sim done right.

My only gripe is that there is no weather (rain for example) or night racing. Thankfully the good outweighs this bad ;)

A great all around package, boasting some of the best road cars around, flashy yet crisp graphics, and a very good looking UI compared to the competitors. It's not the top simulation on the market, but it is a great stepping stone for those looking to move beyond simcade games into something more realistic. While playable with a contrroller, you definitely want a full force feedback wheel to get the most out of this one. Below I will go over the pros and cons in a bit more detail:

Pros -the graphics look fantastic, and it isn't too demanding on your PC to get a beautiful looking race environment
- the physics, while not mind blowing, are more than sufficient to provide decent racing, and fun driving, particularly the road cars. Definitely leaps and bounds above what gran Turismo, Forza and PCars are doing in this department
-the car selection is great. While other games have done race cars to death, Assetto Corsa has the best selection of road cars around, from Ferraris to Mustangs and everything in between. It also has race cars, but the road cars really stand out, and with the above average physics and great graphics, it really makes for a truly immersive experience
-the laser scanned tracks are extremely detailed and stunning to look at, really bringing the experience together
-BEST.DRIFTING.ANYWHERE......yes, you can drift here. Yes, it is awesome
-Force feedback isn't the best on the market by any means, but it gives you a good idea of what your car is doing and will help you master the art of controlling it. Still, above average and better than most everything other than GSCE and RFactor 2
-Updates. Kunos is always updating and improving Assetto Corsa, along with releasing more content. We are on Tire Model 7, and have had 3 dlc packs, free content, and have more being relesed all the time. Japan pack today!!!
-The mods. This title has a great modding community behind it, many modders carried over from RFactor, who put out tons of quality content. The mods work great here, and much of the time are indistinguishable from stock content

Cons -The sounds are far from perfect, and a greater range is needed (a bit bland, need to work on the highs and lows for the growls and whines of real cars). UPDATE: The Japan pack is a step in the right direction, and with a high quality set of headphones, they actually have quite decent range
-The AI started off as some of the worst anywhere, slow and stupid. They have since greatly improved, but they still need a good bit of work. Sometimes they are randomly aggressive, but can end up in a train, "racing" single file if your unlucky. It's hard to find a good match for your skill level, 98% I beat them on most tracks, 100% and I rarely see them beyond lap 3
-The online competition. I can't really fault Kunos for this, but while better than the Gran Turismo/Forza crowd, you still do get a lot of noobs and wreckers. I think it's mostly because, as I mentioned before, Assetto Corsa is used as a stepping stone from racing games to true simulations. Maybe I am just spoiled from iRacing and RFactor 2 Leagues, but I am yet to have a race where half the field is still racing by lap 5. It could really do with a skill matching/ranked racing system.

As you see, the pros far outweigh the cons, and Assetto Corsa is a worthy purchase for any sim racer or car afficianado. With a sense of realism foreign to most gamers, it will have you kicking the backend around corners and fighting to gain each second. It still is far from perfect, and I still prefer RFactor 2 physics, and iRacing's competitive racing, but to just hop in a dream car like a Ferrari 458 or Corvette Stingray and tear up the track, Assetto Corsa reigns supreme. And with the constant inprovements, updates and new content being released all the times, who knows what the future of this title holds. A solid 8/10 from me.

Best racing game I've played! I have a Logitech G27 FFB wheel, and it feels amazing! Also has proper triple monitor support at any angle / distance you like with the in game calibration app. Not as pretty lighting / reflections and effects as Project Cars, but it feels and drives more real to me, which I think is most important. The next best racing sim I've played is GTR2, which is also amazing!

This game made great improvements from the release,Kunos team literally took care of Assetto Corsa untill today,and they are keeping it updated with new contents,fixes and various improvements.
About the game: yeah it is the best simulator that i ever played,tracks based on real lenght,cars have an optimal physics and the graphics it's pretty good. If you have a good steering wheel (that's a "must have" for a game like that in my opinion) you can feel a perfect sim racing/driving experience without any problems.
The game also allows free mods,like tracks,cars,sweetfx and stuff like these.
That's so.
Enjoy your ride

The physics, the attention to detail, the graphics, the modding support, the totally customizable UI with drag & drop apps, the amazing Force Feedback and the best Rift experience in my opinion make this game no-brainer to buy.
