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.

    User freedom, decent multiplayer and most of all an overwhelming feeling of supersport car control. Thanks to its qualities Assetto Corsa is a wonderful gift for all of the virtual steering wheel masters.

    The Crown Prince of driving simulations. [Feb 2015]

    Despite some thorns in the AC racing rose bouquet, Kunos has created an auto game that is definitely worth taking for a spin.

    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.

    Dripping with passion for motor racing, Assetto Corsa is a racing sim that can only get better thanks to regular updates. [Feb 2015, p.13]

    Differences between beta version and the final game are close to none, which means that the career mode – the heart of every racing game – is not even a prototype, it’s a prosthesis. Driving model is excellent though and the tracks were meticulously recreated with laser scanning. Along with the support for the modding community it lets me believe that Assetto Corsa might become a brilliant game in the future. [02/2015, p.52]

    I've been playing every simulators since more than 10 years and I've seen lots of interesting simulations in the past, all with their ownI've been playing every simulators since more than 10 years and I've seen lots of interesting simulations in the past, all with their own charm. 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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Kunos Simulazioni has put in very hard work to create something like this especially in early access or alpha version. I think the game will advance after every single version developers will made so that Assetto Corsa will become a perfect PC simulator game. I also love that the developers includes 114 Steam achievements in the game so far.

    Overall driving physics and especially drifting is amazing, I have not enjoyed something like that. Sound also is mind-blowing. I will be honest, currently I play the pirate version. I am saving money to purchase legal version of Assetto Corsa. I recommend it to everyone who loves sports, simulation and racing games.

    Please bare in mind that my review is of the game in current stage (version 0.7, 2-28-2014).
    This is not a 100% perfect game yet, but I recommend it to ALL of the fans of sim-racing, because it clearly is already one of the best racing simulators that has ever appeared. Physics is the top of the notch and is created by Kunos, with experience from NKP which was a masterpiece as well. The game is going to improve more over the time, and we shall wait for the final release.

While the game certainly looks beautiful, the huge amounts of body roll make supercars feel like you are driving your grandfathers buick and the squeal of the front tires plowing through every corner even with traction control completely disabled makes the game virtually unplayable. Anyone who has ever driven even a moderately fast rear wheel drive car knows that this is simply not how cars behave and to call this game a simulation is disingenuous. The game is lacking on virtually every front aside from ascetics which I would be more than happy to overlook if the driving mechanics were better. I do want to stress that I am in no way looking for an arcade racer, rather a simulation that actually simulates true to life driving mechanics and not another racing game that makes the fastest cars in the world feel slow, soft, under powered, and most importantly suffering from unbearable understeer.
