As someone who has spent a decent amount of time on a real race track, I'd say this game is fairly realistic and L337. Great car physics - significantly better than Forza or Gran Turismo. Needs a wheel to be properly enjoyed.

9.9/10.

Why 9.9? Needs the Porsche license (which I believe is currently being wasted on Need for Speed, or some other garbage-y garbage).

IMO this game blows away iracing for proper realism. It has a raw and gritty feel to it. The feedback from your car and road surfaces is impeccable. Add to that the fact this is only for pc and one can quickly forget all those games who cater to the kiddy console users, leaving us with 2nd rate code for pc. This is a MUST buy for sim racing enthusiasts.

This is my first review I felt I needed to make on such a great sim. Started playing Assetto Corsa when it was first put on steam. I could not have picked a better simulator. I've played a LOT of racing simulators/games, but this one sticks out the most. With the modding community releasing new cars and tracks every other day. The original cars and tracks in the game are top notch! The handling is awesome. The graphics are beautiful. Overall the atmosphere is pretty sweet. I'm glad 1.0 is here it was definitely worth the wait, and I can't wait for future content I will be supporting the developers for such a great simulator!

The only con's is: # 1 The AI they are really buggy, But it does not matter because in a simulator you race against real people for the full effect and it does not bother me one bit!

#2 To get the full experience you will need a racing wheel, I have tried it with a controller and it was just a mess, than again it is a Simulator.

Assetto Corsa is by far one of the most enjoyable racing (simulations) out there. There is already a huge mod community developing content. This game gets the basics dead on: menus, load times, UI, hardware optimization, open platform, etc. It also gets the complex stuff right as well: Game physics, graphics, sound, etc. Physics are the real standout. If you have a racing wheel, you are in for a special experience.

Is it perfect? No. Sounds could be better. Graphcis are not going to blow you away. And some nice features like day night cycles and weather are not planned. (keep in mind this is a small team building this game)

If you want a fun racing sim with a great mod community that does everything well, then AC is your best bet.

Well I must admit i did purchase this game in march I really like the handling and the force feedback is awesome , but I was rather put off by what seems to be a over complicated UI and a mind blowing set ups.

I opted to use my time racing F1 2013 , but this week I was reintroduced to AC by some friends , and wow im hooked , being less than I'm pressed by what I've seen of the F1 2013 DLC .. I mean 2014 , I looked into AC and I'm thinking I will be dropping off the Codies Bandwagon..

I'm only going to purchase 2014 if I get good reviews from ppl I know and trust.

AC is not perfect by any means , but the best parts of AC and the Best parts of 2013 chopped up and put in a blender could yield some amazing results.

id its one thing I really am super happy with about AC its the force feedback its 2nd to none .

Anyway to all the people I've took the ♥♥♥♥ of , who played AC .. Sorry you were right :)

If i'm honest I started to get a little worried that this game would fall into the DayZ trap and be in development forever,with games like Project cars on the way I was starting to lose all interest in Assetto Corsa......until the 1.0 update.

The game now looks absolutly STUNNING,yes we need more cars and tracks but the game itself satisfies my racing urges and plays fantastic with the Xbox One controller (which i will be upgrading to a new wheel as soon as possible).The cars handle and move much better than any driving sim i have played in the past and I am a huge Forza and Grand Tourismo fan,and this was keeping me on consoles,the fact PC had no good racing sims,now I can say PC has everything I want in a gaming platform.

Sorry Forza and GT........Assetto Corsa has risen the bar for a quality racing sim.

version 1.0.0 just dropped. It brings new vehicles, maps and a completely overhauled sound system as well as proper damage, better mechanics and handling, overall the game feels "miles" better compared to the previous versions! Well done Kunos. ohh and career mode is now availible to play... this game is honestly a steal, for the price to content ration!

TLDR: Everything that could have been improved, was improved and here it is still in "early access".

This game has an amazing atmosphere about it to begin with. I find it hard to play it in less than 4-5 hour stints. I just can't help myself. Odds are, you're checking out this game because you like cars. LOOK NO FURTHER! With everything from the physics engine, to the graphics that look frighteningly realistic, this Racing Sim has it all. Beautiful layouts of tracks, cars, intuitive UI for modding the cars' geometry with various suspension setups; that help to not only enhance your Sim experience but to teach about the way cars work in general. I have only played for <100 hours but thats because I thought I could make Raceroom Racing Experience a little bit more like this game.ITS NOT POSSIBLE! I'VE TRIED! The attention to detail really enhances one's experience. I haven't had a single dull second in this sim. In summation, you should stop reading this and buy the game already!

This is a simulator, if you've played Forza 4 and want something more on PC this is the right place to come fore the racing and drifting. Car clubs will be on separate forums and designing livery will we on separate software. There is little to no car upgrades and no rims to change, unless that comes in the future.

But if you focus on more racing, own a Logitech g27 or better wheel, yep, you've come to the right place. Things will be a bit new and unfamiliar at first before the grip, handling and tuning menus start shining through and you immerse your self in mastering the cars.

The modding community alone could make this game gigantic in the future. Gigantic in the sense that you could focus on one little area of racing and find hundreds if not thousands that enjoy the same class, tracks, time period and mode of competition.

Promising is just the tip of the iceberg.

The early access release of Assetto Corsa has satisfied the long awaiting Racing Sim community with early signs of vehicular mastery. The acclaimed physics are the best in the genre, whilst the graphics continue to astonish, with clean and crisp visuals accurately modelling its host of licensed vehicles and tracks. Although game modes are still limited, their approach teases a highly refined final product.

Excellent race simulator. Both look and feel. It works great with the Thrustmaster RS500 + separate shifter that I use. Since this is a WIP it can only get better. Only minus at this point in development is the way the AI opponents crash into you every now and then. Great game!

This game was a suprisingly fun experience. As an avid Forza fan for years I have always wanted something I could play on PC. Now, don't let me lead you on this is NOT Forza. It is a very different type of sim-racer ( for those looking for a direct replacement ). It is much less forgiving, but focuses more on the accurate reproduction of racing.

It is a gorgeous game, far prettier. The handling is a lot more on the realism side; and as such are pretty difficult to get used to.. but with the right setup even an Xbox 360 controller will be tolerable. The track selection has improved a lot since very old updates of the alpha I had played, and the game has gotten a much larger selection on cars. Even 2ish days experience on the game, I am thoroughly enjoying it. Highly recommend.

Although playing without a wheel is awkward to say the least, this game has above average physics and graphics. I would recommend this to any racing game enthusiast, or as a first racing game for anyone new to the genre.

Early Access Review
This is an okay game. It could use a better SDK and the ability for players to modify already released cars so that they can drive them with different specs from the default, but otherwise, this is an okay racing game. It needs some music, and has some twitchy controls with steering wheels, but supports practically all steering wheels even the driving force GT steering wheel.

-- Content Creation --
If you are like me and into content creation. You can make your own tracks using the Assetto Corsa track, make car retextures, create a custom car based on the Formula K car that Assetto Corsa comes with and more. I've only done the car retextures and gotten tracks that other modders have made. This helps to make this among the best racing games out there in my opinion. Especially since there are a lot of modders out there trying to make content for this game.

-- Steering wheel controller --
Works mostly with the Logitech G27 steering wheel, but the steering wheel's shift indicator doesn't work... (( Look below for solution to this )) It's okay, though kind of takes away from the feel of the game for me. The game with this steering wheel will shift in such a way that allows you to use the manual shifter (H-pattern) when in a car that has an H-pattern shifter, otherwise you're restricted to the paddle shifters for those cars that have that. I prefer the H-Pattern shifter, but there many cars in the game that don't use that shifter.

-- Other issues --
Currently no career mode, and when its added hopefully it won't force people to drive all manner of cars...

Currently some cars are very twitchy if you accelerate oddly quick. This is mostly something from the high horsepower cars.

-- Solutions to problems above --
* Steering wheel issue with G27 and no LEDs use. Download FanaLEDs program, In FanaLEDs program do File - Open Settings, open Global, change revledtype to 1, then save, close FanaLEDs and reopen it. Now you can set up the RPM percentage you want to start counting at, for me this is 60%. And it will count up each LED on the steering wheel until about 500 RPMs before red line and at red line it will start flashing the LEDs to indicate that you need to shift up. I love Assetto Corsa now that this feature works, maybe they will make it so we don't need to use FanaLEDs to get this to work in the future.

*** UPDATE as of Release Candidate 1.0.1 ***
The game's cars don't act like the real world cars anymore. In particular, the production car ones. They feel too twitchy and act more like what you'd expect on an arcade game instead of being something like you'd get on a driving simulator game like GT5. Hopefully, they'll fix this for the actual release.

I haven't played that many racing sims before, the only ones I've been playing are GT5, GT6 and this(Assetto Corsa). it might also be good to add that i've been playing this game with a PS3 controller. Anyway, from my experience, this game have a good potential to become a better racing sim.
The things I like with this game is the vehicle physics, and the AI. I think the AI is more competitive in this game than in GT, it makes the races more thrilling and fun!
The things I don't like with this game yet is the low amount of cars available, but it's still in early access and more cars are coming, so that will change. Another thing that I don't like with this game is that it's a little bit glitchy some times after some updates.. But you have to keep in mind that this game is still in early access.

Do I recommend this game? Yes, I do! Well, this game might not be a game for everyone, but if you know you got some petrol in your blood, then this is a game you should buy.
