Early Access Review
+ vehicledynamics/handling
+ looks good
+ sounds good
+ laserscanned tracks
+ nice selection of cars
+ mods

- AI/KI
- no weather
- no night
- first kunos wanted to sell it as a F2P Game and you feel and see it in almost every aspect of this game (5sec penalty, no false starts, pitstops, no flagrules etc)
- kunos want to get a big company so they care more about nice pressevents and nice pictures then turning this game into a real racing simulator
- no longer every 2 week updates
- many, many, many idiots/jerks/♥♥♥♥♥♥s/cheaters in public multiplayer
- maybe a DLC nightmare in the future (3rd party paycontet already available)
- almost impossible to do close door-2-door racing cause of massive microlags in multiplayer
- lags in general (when the player in front of you is hard on the edge of his car - his car starts to lag/warp and you most likely crash him/you/both of you out of the race if you dont slow down and let a gap of 1-2sec between your cars)
- maxed out graphics needs huge gpu performance
- damagesystem in its current state is ♥♥♥♥ed up from top to bottom
- overall it feels like a tuned up forza motorsport (physic) with by far less content and costumisation of your cars (i played fm3 and loved it also) (most likely cause they wanted to sell it as f2p ♥♥♥♥game where you would have to pay a lot of real cash for a nice paint or spoiler)
- Trento Bondone Hillclimb Track is a bad conversation from netcar (the devs also forbidded to mod it into the game for modders) and is by far the visual worst track and yes you can also fall out of the hole track/level into an endless flyinspin when you crash at the wrong place...like in a 0.2 version of some modtracks. I HOPE THEY FIX THIS ASAP.


So is it a good game? More - then +.
If you like driving/racinggames like rf,gtr,iracing and own a wheel it is definitely a must have. ATTENTION: Nordschleife will come as DLC with 10cars and is NOT INCLUDED in the release version of this game.
If you more confident with a simple xbox controller then wait for project cars or stay with forza motorsport/gt.
Singleplayer sucks cause of KI and limited simulation of real racing.
PUBLIC Multiplayer sucks cause of many, many, many wreckers and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ wannabe schumachers.
Best solution is to download some hillclimb/rallytrack mods and enjoy the driving from point a to b. ALONE. Or join a racingleague for fair and hard racing (but not too close :))


This is my personal opinion after 770hours of testing and driving, bugreporting and following the developement since day 1 of ea release.

Cheers and have fun

Early Access Review
Wow... I have been looking for a game like this for a while. You can play the game two ways:

1. You play it like a simulator sweating your ♥♥♥ off. Loads of fun.

2. You just kinda chill out and go out for a nice sunday drive, maybe even drift a little. Loads of fun.

Any way you like it, you're gonna enjoy it. The game is really well optimized, and it seems to work with nearly any racing wheel. I used a 9-year-old racing wheel, and it worked like a charm! The fact that the game has modding abilities, makes me fall in love with it even more. Wether you want to drift around on Rainbow Road with you BMW M3 or cruise around Paris with your Fiat 500, the mods have got you covered. The realism that Kunos have put into the game, is outstanding. The car sounds, the handling and the looks! The game looks and sounds epic overall. It's astonishing that the game is only in early access, since it sure feels like a complete game.

I cannot wait to see how the game turns out on release! Kudos Kunos. Kudos...

9.5/10

There are games you should consider then there are games that you should buy.

This one is one you should buy.

Everyone loves cars, everyone loves loud cars, everyone loves fast cars, everyone loves classic cars, everyone loves gorgeous cars... This game has them all,

It's a simulator in it's most basic description, handling is difficult, probably impossible with mouse and keyboard and playing with every aid turned off is a pain... However, there is no best feeling than mastering a old classic Lotus or taking a brand new Ferrari to the limit and hearing it's ♥♥♥♥♥♥ic sound breaking trough corners, this game is a rush

Now because Assetto Corsa isn't a fully finished product, I won't be too critical about any problems it has... But I think it's good to mention what the developers have done well... So;

Let's start with the sounds, and oh boy they're great! So great that you just want to keep turning the volume up on your speakers until they hit 11! I really like the work they've done with it. The graphics are also very good, it's really nice to see the refulections of your dashboard on the Windscreen which obscures your visability (just like in real life). As well as that, the physics are very good, much better than a lot of SimRacers out there!

I think the Multiplayer will become something really great, even if it is a tiny bit unreliable and hard to navigate currently in Beta Form. I also look forward to the larger variety of cars that the developers have planned! This was money well spent!

Lacking many features that are standard for other PC racing sims, but the physics more than make up for it. Even if Kunos does not add many options essential for racing competitively online, the base content is more than enough to make AC worth a purchase.

This is the best car simulation ever created! Both road and race cars are simulated extremely accurately. The visuals and sounds are absolutely top notch as well.

In addition to the amazing official content with cars and tracks there are already 100+ 3:rd party "mods" with quality tracks and cars available for download, most of them free!

This is the best that has happened in car simulation for the past 20 years

I have driven Assetto Corsa for over 300 hours so far and I cant get enough!

Early Access Review
After playing around with a few racing arcade/sim games I came accross Asseto Corsa. At first I found It really challenging, not because its hard to play it just takes a little getting used to. I bought the game early in it's release and have seen it grow from strength to strength. You have to drive the vehicles as you woul in real life, with care. If you are not careful the game will punish you and you will not enjoy it.

I highly reccomend this to anyone who has patience to learn to race properly. It's not a game for you if all you want to do is put your foot flat to the floor and hope for the best. It takes time and a lot of effort to become any good.

10/10 for me love it!

Early Access Review
The purest sim on the market. I'll really know when Project Cars goes live but damn, you can tweak EVERYTHING on these cars! And the cars.....! Excuse me, had to wipe the drool off my chin. Did mention the cars? And they continue to add more. The tracks and beautiful. But beware, arcade is a dirty word around Kunos. This game is gorgeous and the teaser trailer does not due it justice, it is even more graphically beautiful then any other game I have ever owned. This game is demanding, it demands your respect, it demands your TIME ( you have to invest a considerable amount of time in this, tweaking, tweaking and then you must tweak ) The publishers set out to make the ultimate driving and racing sim and they suceeded, boy did they suceed.

There are many, many pros for this game, maybe too many to mention but a few are:

a) The beauty of the game
b) The close attention to details in both cars and tracks. The weather options work as weather works IRL. The sky acts like the sky IRL. The cars act as they are supposed to but I really can't stand behind that statement because in all of my 65 years I have never driven any of these vehicles, lol but I trust Kunos on that.
c) Blah, blahba blab blah blab

The only con I can mention is this:

This game is an accurate simulation of racing. If you don't know what your doing (like for instance...me) it does not hold your hand. Learn or never successfully race again. When driving the powerful cars ( and AC lets you drive them all) you rarely recover from the condition known as Leadeus Footites. You won't advance very far in the career mode if you do not put in the time to learn the intricaces of the game. This game is tough with a capital What The Hell Did I Do Wrong This Time?, T. The AC community are very friendly and helpful, that is until you race them. Those that know what they are doing will K I l l you everytime. As I mentioned earlier, you have to invest your time, you have no choice if you want to fully enjoy this game. Fortunately, I got this on sale (which made my friend in the British Isles, Skymarshall_uk very irked) but I don't regret a dime I have invested in it.

All in all I rate game on a couple of levels: Beauty and Asthetics: I can only go to 10 so I give it 11+
Difficulty: Again, I can on go to 10 but it's much harder than that
Playability and Replayability: 10, if you invest the time
Controller Accessibilty: Supports all wheels that I can see
Final rating: 10 I recomend this to ALL gearheads and wannabees (like me)

Thanx for reading and hopefully this helps you in your selection. The Managment.

Oh, and by the way, you had better have some heft in your video graphics card and speed in your CPU. It may run for you if you don't but I don't think you will enjoy the beauty of the game if you don't.
