About This Game

Assetto Corsa 1.3 is out now!

Assetto Corsa 1.3 is now available for download on Steam!
Assetto Corsa version 1.3 introduces some great improvements to the core game engine and new features to the physics engine.
The game now supports native 64-bit code. The physics engine has been reworked and is now completely multithreaded. As a result, the driving precision is augmented, the accuracy has further improved and the physics solver has enough horsepower to completely resolve any difficult calculations at any speed, achieving butter-smooth Force Feedback and a complete elimination of signal noise and vibrations.

Assetto Corsa’s top-class physics engine has been constantly evolving and improving. The AC physics code already includes various industry-first features, such as advanced active aerodynamics, four-wheel drive simulation with active differentials, realistic driving assists systems, unique hybrid engines simulation and advanced tyre-wear features, such as blistering, graining and flat spots.

With version 1.3 we now present you a completely reworked tyre model that includes new features in connection with tyre-speed sensitivity, combined grip, slip angles and ratios, load sensitivity, rolling resistance and most importantly, separated heating for surface and core temperatures. As a result, driving in Assetto Corsa is now more realistic than ever. The driving experience is more natural while at the same time also more challenging at the limit. Real-life features such as driving carefully in the first two laps to heat the tyres or taking it easy to cool down overheated tyres after a spin, the handling of the car changing from turn to turn depending on your driving style or as a result of driver errors and choosing the correct tyre compound depending on the track and car combination and also your driving style will now become part of your daily driving experience in Assetto Corsa. 

We did not stop at the tyres though. We have improved the ABS system and now depending on the car, Assetto Corsa supports different generations of ABS systems using 1 to 4 channels. We have enabled active differentials also for RWD cars, such as the brand new BMW M4, which is part of the Dream Pack 2 DLC. We also have improved the height sensitivity of front splitters and diffusers making their influence more complex from a setup engineering point of view and more demanding from the aspect of the driver, creating an overall more satisfactory experience for everyone.

Do not just drive by memory some binary data values that resemble cars on your screen. Drive cars that are “alive”, constantly changing their behaviour from turn to turn as a response to your personal driving style.

Assetto Corsa is a realistic racing simulation game developed by Kunos Simulazioni. In Assetto Corsa you get behind the wheel of one of many realistically recreated cars ranging from the little Abarth 500 (upgraded version of the Fiat 500) to the beast that is the Pagani Zonda R. You'll push these cars to their limits as your storm around the tracks this game has to offer including the legendary Nurburgring (part of the Dream DLC Pack 1).

Before I get to the main part of my review I want to point a few things out which have had an impact on my opinion of the game. Firstly, I'm not a racing sim expert, far from it in fact, most of my racing experience comes from the arcadey side of the genre so I'm less used to the level of realism found in AC. Secondly, I played using an Xbox 360 Gamepad rather than a wheel and pedals since I don't own a wheel. Thirdly, I own the Dream DLC Pack 1 so my review will include things only available as part of the DLC. Finally, I haven't followed the game through it's development and I've only played the most recent version which is v1.1.6.

+Good graphics and visual effects
+A good selection of cars which are all well modeled
+A good variety of tracks including a laser-scanned Nurburgring
+Quite a lot to do, including: drag races, solo track practices, time trial events, race weekends a career mode and much more
+Surprisingly good controls for a Gamepad
+A fair amount of customisation options for the cars in regards to tuning and paint jobs
+Great sound effects for the cars
+All of the cars, even different versions of the same car (e.g. a production model and a GT model), feel very different which makes driving each one unique to driving the others
+It's very easy to get into for beginners like myself
+A huge amount of mods
+Lots of info displays which you can choose to use when racing
+Despite AC being out of Early Access, Kunos are planning to continue adding more and more content to the game which can never be a bad thing
+AC supports Oculus as well as three monitor setups, while I personally don't make use of these I know they're important features for a lot of people
+Reasonably quick load times

+/-Penalties feel a little too harsh to me but perhaps that's just because I'm not a racing sim buff

-The AI are pretty bad, they seem to have a path which they absolutely have to take and don't feel at all like they're actual drivers which is what you would expect from a racing game. On top of this they're also very 'timid' when it comes to overtaking and unless you go off the track chances are they'll just stay behind you for the rest of the race
-While you can change the time of DAY that your race takes place at there's no night time in the game which is rather disappointing
-Weather effects go no further than clear skies, clouds of fog so there's no rain which is again, rather disappointing
-The soft-body physics is really bad, doesn't look at all realistic, for example driving 150mp/h into a solid wall left my bumper with some small dents and scratches
-The controls which can be bound to the Gamepad are very limited, for example you can't bind pause to your Gamepad so you have to reach over to the Esc key every time you want to pause which gets frustrating very quickly
-The mouse cursor is always visible on screen, one my biggest pet peevs

For regular gamers - Worth Purchasing (8/10)

For Racing sim veterans - A Must Have (8.5/10)

A fantastic racing sim which can be enjoyed by those new to racing sims as well as veterans of the genre, though it's far from flawless. If you have any interest in racing games I suggest you pick this one up.

I am 49. Got my license 1982. Built two V8 Chevy Vega's and pulled "super B's" (tractor trailer) in the back forestry roads of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta Canada. Not much on gaming but now addicted to simulators. Assetto Corsa in particular.
A couple of months ago I found Assetto Corsa mildly interesting. Coming from playing Gran Turismo with my boy in the living room too full out simulator cockpit Fanatec Clubsport wheel, i7 4790, 32g ram, sold state HH, two GTX 980's and Oculus Rift and the best I could get was real driving conditions if I didn't get into a skid.
Steering into the slide did little. Reading about other guys experiencing the same fake slide and seeing the ridicule they were getting for feed back frighten me from asking straight out.
By reading threads I got Razer Cortex, which shuts down background apps. Got Malwarebyt, which cleaned hundreds of pups.
Video card settings Vertical Sync off and Virtual Reality set at 1 (Oculus Rift) In game I turned off Vsync (red flicker) and the silver bullet, which got me all worked up to write this for guys like me complaining about the fake, lingering slide.
REFLECTIONS set down to low and static reflections set to very low looks the same as reflections high and static reflections off.
The fake slide is reduced considerably with both at lowest settings. I also set about 50% skid control. I know, sounds wrong but it also helps with the fake slide. They still have some work to do but on the right track. I would say it is harder to drive in game than a real car at this point so be patient and be aware of your speed. 50 mph still feels like 30 mph to me.
Having said that Assetto Corsa is still incredible. I am even learning how to drift.
This is getting somewhat real. Assetto Corsa is worth all the money and time.
The thing that has me addicted is the track and car mods, and support. Checking to see what is new every day is one of my favorite things to do.
I can't emphasize this enough. Sim guys are some of the nicest and most helpful people from all over the world.
Just try searching Google Image "Assetto Corsa car mod downloads" and see for yourself.
Have fun. Paul

Category Score Notes
Visuals 9 One of the prettiest racing games out there, Assetto Corsa can look nearly lifelike with the right post-processing settings. At night or day, the amount of detail is nothing short of stunning and the available photo mode makes it easy to capture wallpaper-worthy screenshots. Shortcomings include a lack of weather system and the relatively bare scenery at some tracks.
Sound 7 The quality of the sound varies from car to car. Some delight your ears with crackles and pops and whines while others leave you feeling disappointed, though one has to remember not every car sounds exciting in real life. Developers have stated they are still working on improving sound assetts.
Physics 9 Few racing games can match Assetto Corsa when it comes to physics. Suspension, tires, track surface, and more are all accurately modelled to offer the most realistic driving experience possible, short of the real thing. Naturally, this does mean you'll want to play with a wheel to enjoy the full experience.
Force Feedback 8 Force feedback is always going to be subject to opinion as not everyone agrees on what it should be doing. Assetto Corsa's version does a good job of communicating weight transfer but can fall short when it comes to fine detail. Overall, it's easy to know what the car is doing and anyone who spends a few minutes configuring their settings should have a good time.
Cars 10 Assetto Corsa features 69 cars at the time of this review, with more being added regularly. LaFerrari with a functioning KERS system, working active aerodynamics on the Pagani Huyara, and even McLaren P1 software updates that affect rear wing behavior are just a few examples of the painstaking amount of effort Kunos Simulazioni has put into the details of every car in this game.
Tracks 9 17 tracks are currently featured in the game, all of which are recreated down to the smallest bumps, cracks, and camber changes thanks to laser-scanning technology, including the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife. The total selection is relatively low but that's the price you pay for quality - quality that makes the driving come alive when combined with the excellent physics.
Multiplayer 7 The multiplayer can suffer from trolls and bad drivers like every other simracing title that supports open races. That being said, the netcode is solid and the multiplayer experience can be excellent if you choose to join an organized league. Unless you're willing to shell out lots of money for iRacing, Assetto Corsa is almost as competitive as it gets in this category, but it does suffer from clunky pit stops and a notable lack of a spectator/replay system.
AI 3 The AI in Assetto Corsa can best be described as "serviceable." It's there and it can drive pretty fast if you let it, but it combines a tendency to carelessly crash into the player with (oddly) over-caution. It's quite easy to block them while ahead but if you get them off the racing line, they almost always do everything in their power to return to it regardless of the consequences.
Career 3 It's difficult to enjoy the career with the AI in its current state. It can feel quite repetitive without giving you any sense of accomplishment. A handful of races are impossible to win even with world record lap times and others are quite easy to dominate despite being on the same difficulty setting. Some series also advertise "race weekends" without actually offering them.
Mods 9 Assetto Corsa is currently the hotbed for simracing mods. If the game doesn't already feature a car or track you want, it's probably on a website somewhere or soon will be. You can mod everything from the cars, tracks, and sounds to the menu, HUD, and career. The downside is that the developers will sometimes update the game in a way that break mods until they too are updated.
Overall 8.5 If you're looking for a hotlap simulator or a platform for league racing, then Assetto Corsa is second to none (or at least it will be when it gets a proper spectator/replay system). Casual pickup multiplayer racing is still entirely worth the money, but you'll probably want to skip the purchase if offline AI racing is the main thing you're interested in.

I´ve waited a long time with my review, because I wanted to see what kinds of addition this game gets over time. But well, here it is:

Assetto Corsa is a very challenging and rewarding game. It is one of the few titles that truly deserve to be called a "Racing Simulation" in a genre where many games proudly boast the moniker, and then severely disappoints in that regard.

- A true Racing Simulation on PC, one of the very few titles to come out in recent years
- Good production value, you can really see that the devs know what they´re doing
- Extremely good physics engine
- Good graphics
- Relatively fast AI
- It´s stupidly easy to use mods
- there are tons of high-quality mods of cars, tracks and UI apps readily available

- 80% of the included tracks are Italian
- 40% of the included cars are Lotus (seriously, there are 7 variations of the Lotus Evora and 5-6 for the Exige... Who the hell thought this was a good idea?)
- Some other cars are sorely missed instead (No R34, Lancer Evo, RX-7, Challenger, Charger, C63 AMG, SLR, and no Audi´s, Porsche´s, Toyota´s, Ford´s, e..., at all!)
- AI is extremely taxing on the CPU (I have a 4 GHz AMD Octacore, and yet CPU occupancy goes above 95% when I race more than 10 cars, causing the game to stutter on my system)
- AI is incapable of actually fighting for positions (they may drive quickly, but once you have caught them, you´ll easily overtake, and they will never undertake even the slightest try to get the position back)
- The flag, pit stop, weather, day-night mechanics are NOT available yet. This means no chance for real competitive gameplay yet.

Total: 7.5/10. Don´t get me wrong: It still is one of the best racers I have ever played! But i have to admit, I most likely only love it so much because it has no competition. There are a bunch of things that are wrong with this game, that need to be critizised.
But when you´re hunting your ghost on the Nordschleife, piloting a (Mod) Mazda 787B on a cold track... you´ll forget about all of the flaws. You won´t notice any flaws, and even if you did: You wouldn´t care.
In these moments, the game deserves a straight 10/10, and it will be worth the asking price all of a sudden.

recommendation: Hell yes. If you are into non-arcade racing and have a capable rig - you have no excuse to not buy this.

Fantastic Racing Simulator, with a very active modding community and some very good external apps - RSR Live Timing for example is a must.

Game can still be quite temperamental with unexplained fatal crashing and the online multi-player is still missing many elements, such as unsatisfying results screen.

However the positives far outweigh the negatives and this is a must buy for any race fan and a game I expect to still be enjoying far beyond the 1000 hour mark.

As a little addition - I think it is only fair to say that the game has become considerably more stable and much less likely to crash out in recent updates.

Much effort has also been made in streamlining the online multiplayer experience, which ran like a bit of a dog in the earlier releases, but which now holds a good average and perfectly adequate frame rate with 20+ online players participating.
