About This Game

Assetto Corsa 1.4 and Dream Pack 3 now available!

Graphics
Some features related to post processing effects have been redefinied, including FXAA filter, that has been significantly improved using Kunos' own shader. The new build performs also a new reflection rendering system: these feature result in a substantial improvment of how vehicles look. The HDR algorithm now matches real life photographic references, resulting in much natural lighting and reflections.
Build 1.4 introduces also a new font rendering system for dashboards, that results in a better graphics level and definition, and digital instruments have been updated for all available cars. An exaggerate motion blur effect for some camera modes has been fixed.

Artificial intelligence
The new build introduces a new algorithm to improve the ability for AI drivers to stick to the intended racing line, resulting in better behaviour in close racing Also, the code related to braking algoritghm now is able to understand and use locked inside tyre for FWD.

Multiplayer
The antilag/antiwarp system has been vastly improved, introducing a new netcode prediction algorithm that is now used to handle missing packets that used to generate warps and lags, resulting in a more stable and consistent online experience.

Audio
Since the first Dream Pack we also put much effort audio wise, especially for exterior sounds. The Dream Pack 3 is no exception and each car got its distinctive note, from the little mighty 500 Assetto Corse to the screaming DFV V8 engine of the legendary Lotus 72d. Furthermore, "old" cars are undergoing a sound revamp: the 1.4 update will bring to you new exterior sounds for the BMW M3 e30 DTM/Group A.

if you want a true to life simulator of car dynamics and car physics then this is your game.

if you want a simulator that perfectly captures each car's individual driving and handling feel as well as each car's individual engine note, this is your game.

if you want a simulator that accurately models drivetrains, this is your game.


AC with the bonus pack and both dream packs is an absolutely brilliant game, and with the 1.3 update brings new improved tyre models and physics along with reworked sound and some more polishing. cars feel incredibly planted with new tyre modeling (as should be the case on semi-slicks and slicks) and gain of grip/loss of grip works perfectly.

it will only get better, and better. really the only thing that needs to be added is laserscan sebring and laguna seca along with a polished fully fledge career mode and its a 10/10 game. as of now its 9/10

I've taken 2 years to finally write a proper review of Assetto Corsa, to try to like it and write a positive review. But I've been let down, so there goes a thumbs-down review.

Assetto Corsa came out almost 3 years ago as an Early Access release for a reasonable price taking into account the amount of bugs, lack of content and everything that an uncompleted game brings. The title got a quick nice response from users for its remarkably detailed physics and the absolutely superb work on cars and tracks modelling, being the tracks laser-scanned. Another positive point well welcomed by the community is the full mod compatibility, which extends the possibilities of the game in terms of content and personalisation to amazement.
Kunos though are a very small developing team which has worked so hard to release new tracks and circuits, all of them officially licensed by brands, and refined the game architecture to add capabilities, fix bugs and improve and optimize graphics and performance. All this work is released slowly, drop by drop, long time between, but at least they release it.
This year though they decided to get the game out of Early Access, and with a nice full-price tag of double the initial price. The game itself works smoothly, quite well optimised (don't trust the minimum GTX460 required, you can run it with a GT540 easily) and with full compatibility with any wheel or pad. Where's the problem then?

As said before, the amount of content is alarmingly low. After some years the number of cars and tracks hasn't increased much and the variety isn't quite wide really. You have the full Lotus catalogue and most Ferraris, and then a few other cars like a McLaren MP4/12C and its GT3 version and some other road cars. Don't misunderstand me, having such fleet of Ferraris and some of the fasterst road cars is rather coool. But the problem is that they end up being all the same. All the Lotus cars are similar, Lotus cars are similar to some other featured cars, Ferraris are similar to the other high performance cars... After all, you have an acceptable amount of models, but you can summarise them in a few. There isn't a car that outstands among the others, or different types of cars like go-karts or more motorsport disciplines. In fact, you can differentiate 4 categories: F1 cars, Supersports cars, Sportscars and Abarth. I've driven every single car released and it's like that.
Despite that, with the first non-beta release a DLC came out, which adds the Nordschleife and ten cars, which again you can summarise in 4 new real additions. And for a price of 14,99€, right after having paid 49.99€ for a game that seriously lacks content. Unreasonable.

The game is limited to hotlapping. AI is just unraceable because it will just stick to the racing line. Make a move and they'll bump into you as if your car wasn't there. Rival cars will never make a mistake nor get corner-cutting penalties, which you get every time you put a single wheel outside the tarmac and that slows you down to 50kph.
Practice and Hotlap sessions are fun though, they feel as if you were actually there driving on a client run. The entire circuit for yourself, just you and your car. Actually it's fun, especially using a wheel. It ends up challenging yourself to beat your lap time, but after some laps it gets boring...
Although it's been announced as out of Early Access, the game itself proves it is just the same as before. Only fully playable mode is hotlapping and you can only play on dry track and not at night. The fun part of this game is pushing against the clock to beat your lap times, but if you can only race in the same weather and light conditions the challenging aspect of the game is lost as soon as you have lapped a few times every circuit.

Online was released in mid Early Access and it was reasonable and justified that it didn't work at all. Later updates made it more stable and raceable, but nowhere near from easy to use. It worked with a "booking" system. There's a server list with the race info (players, ping, track and cars allowed). Those which are post/pre-race are open for around 5 minutes for people to join by "booking" an entry on the race. There's not even a matchmaking room, you just click the "booking" button and wait 5 minutes to play, although most times when the countdown ended the server would just crash and force you to book again. If you manage to enter a race room, it is most of the times empty.
Bad part of this is that despite being claimed "1.0 version, full release" the multiplayer keeps just the same.

Mods are more or less easy to find. There are portals and forums which have the Mods and Download sections and uploaders generally have a decent knowledge on the matter, so their work is usually nice although don't expect to find everything you're looking for because most of the mods get banned for copyright and licensing. The game though isn't very respectful with mods. After an update you may find that none of the mods you downloaded are compatible, and as they're mods they don't auto-update. Annoying stuff if you have a large collection of mods.

In the technical aspect, Assetto Corsa is close to brilliant. It may not have rainy weather, or night racing, or a proper damage system, or headlights that actually work or breathtaking graphics effects, but the attention to physics has no rival. Aero effects, weight balance, force feedback... Absolutely amazing. If we take a look at updates changelogs, most of the updates have to do with these things. Handling then will be completely realistic, tricky as it should be.
It is not at all playable with gamepad though, but this game is a simulator so it's rather "dumb" to play with anything different from a wheel, which works perfectly once set up.

The base is solid and really promising, but the lack of content is a fact to consider. Not only that, the gameplay is limited and lacks basic functions. I don't want to compare this game with another one because it's not fair and every game is different on it's own, but Assetto Corsa isn't the best option for a race simulator right now. I'd say it's better to wait until more content is released, but I've done that for a long time and it's becoming hopeless. It's not fair to double the price of the game when it has almost the same things that you had when it was Early Access. Not to mention the DLC...

*PATCH EDIT*

2 more DLC...

Great for hotlaping. Iconic cars. Great Force Feed Back and car handeling. Laser scanned tracks. Modable.


Terrible Ai and bare-bones multiplayer.
