Assetto Corsa is being designed to provide a very realistic driving experience, with single player and multiplayer options, officially licensed cars and tracks developed using Laser scan technology, and the highest level of accuracy possible in reproducing real world motor racing environments. Also, 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 collect lots of cars and tracks.

    Assetto Corsa is a shining masterpiece of virtual motorsport, a new standard for the future of driving simulators and an all-Italian pride.

    Assetto Corsa is the Stradivari, the lasagna, and the Ferrari 250 GTO of video games: pure, crystalline Italian excellence. A new milestone for driving simulations.

    Assetto Corsa is a wonderful racing simulator, inheriting the technical proficiency of Simbin’s GTR 2 and rFactor modding attitude. And bringing them both to a new level.

    Assetto Corsa's laser focus on the driving experience works wonders - and when it comes to replicating that simple, brilliant pleasure, there's no other game right now that does it better.

    Assetto Corsa is far from perfect and it still needs some tweaking and more contents, but this driving game does a remarkably effort to deliver a great experience for PC users.

    The driving physics are a dream come true. If at all, only iRacing can capture the fascination of authentic driving this realistically. But in terms of content it leaves a lot to be desired: Even though it looks great, it still feels like a beta version. Maybe the dev team should have waited a little longer with the official release to give Assetto Corsa more time for fine tuning.

Assetto Corsa raise the bar by providing the fun of Live for Speed, the moduling of rFactor, the laser scanned tracks of Iracing with the career mode of any AAA racing game on consoles. Most of these features are not in the game yet as the early release is of course Beta which means you get the game without all it's final feature earlier at a discount price. Did I mentionned AC have a license for Ferrari cars? Plenty of games in the past had Ferraris and high brands but this is the very first time I actually have the feeling of driving one of these cars. You can play the game using a gamepad (with thumbstick!) but for the most immersive feeling, a proper wheel is highly recommended. You might see some people online bashing the game without even trying it. Most of these trolls are fanboys of other racing games and simply cannot accept than something much more realistic does exist. Don't listen to them, give it a try yourself. This is a must buy for any serious simulation fan. I hope this review helped you a little Expand

That's just it, even in this early access stage with poor multiplayer, ai, collisions and no external damages, you have the best physics, the most realistic virtual reproduction of tracks and cars and the best feeling while driving, both using a professional race wheel or a gamepad. Nothing less than excellent. It's a really deserved 10 out of 10 for me. Expand

Assetto Corsa absolutely delivers the real thrill of being behind the wheel of a car. There aren't so many vehicles and tracks to choose from yet, but the ones that are available at the moment - are recreated with maximum detail and with true passion. And more downloadable content is on the way!
    As to the physics, only iRacing can compete with this game in my opinion - the driving is simply phenomenal. The fact that the development team uses real performance data from car manufacturers puts the experience to a higher level, you can easily lose yourself in this simulation for hours straight.
    And the graphics are gorgeous, especially if you have pc-horsepower to crank up all the video settings. Cockpit cam is superb, the quality of the interiors is second to none. I recommend playing it in 3D with a good FFB wheel.
    In a word, this is a must have for all racing fans. And if you are not a racing fan - play Assetto Corsa and you will undoubtedly become one ;)

    Probably the best Simulation game on PC.
    Physics and FFB are amazing, graphics really nice and very well optimized for an early access game.

    I'm waiting for AI and multiplayer to give a complete advice, but the driving sensation is already amazing.

Using a FFB wheel the handling is great, and this is the greatest highlight of this game: the driving. I can go on driving and driving for hours, each corner is a rewarding experience. The second highlight of AC is the graphics: cars look stunning and replays are beautiful. The third highlight is that the game is very modder-friendly. Amazing cars and tracks are produced every month by the community, you can never get bored. The fourth highlight is racing: multiplayer is still elemental but very solid, you can just jump into a public server for a quick race and have tons of fun, or if you're fast join a league.

    Things to improve: hmm.. the computer-driven cars still have some weird behavior, multiplayer needs a bit of work to enable more admin options, and some other small details here and there.

Sim fans will argue about who has the best tyre modelling, most accurate tracks, best physics, graphics etc but Assetto Corsa has managed to take all that and package it up in one great racing sim. DX11, laser scanned tracks, sublime tyre modelling and physics and solid online play in my opinion make this the sim to beat.

    On top of the regular developer created content Asetto Corsa already has a lively modding scene making third party tracks and cars so the future is really bright for this sim and I don't doubt I'll still be playing this in years to come.

Yeah atm we are playing the Gold version 1.01 released after 1 year of early access, but it feels like a beta game.

    Ferrari, Lambos, Bmw, Lotus, Mercedes ecc ecc, a lot of cars, really a lot of cars, and you can also download mod!

    Let's review something more serious:

    Off line racing, AI, career mode... Absolutely useless. The career mode is boring like the hell, there is no motivation at all to do all the career. Every race is just one of the many special events that you can race out of the career, also the AI is stupid at the best. Really, there is no point to race off line.

    On line racing, multiplayer. Assetto Corsa has the WORST multiplayer system since many years, yeah also Rfactor has a lot better multy than AC. There is no control on cheater, no control on rammers, no control at all. ridiculous. For example, you can just edit the physics of you car, job a race with your keyboard, and smash in the wall everyone every time you want. So simple.

    Simulation aspects: no rain, no night, nothing. Just sun, and a dry track.

    What is AC? A "track day solo hot lapping simulator with Ferrari and many other boats for rich people".
    What isn't AC? For sure, a "racing simulator".

    Last thing, do not trust the reviews from Italian magazines... They are all friends, and it is absolutely ridiculous. Wait some serious reviews from and international magazines.
