The best simulation game for console ever. For who like games like Forza and GT this isn't the best option. But for who like PC games like rFactor, Automodelista and GTR this is the best choice for playing in console.
The game is absolutely spot-on when it comes to driving. As a game, including gaming things like career, it surely doesn't deserve the score (10), but when it comes to fun while driving in competitive championships, there's nothing like it on consoles. For the "game part", I'd say that the Special Events are excellent fun - really hard and makes you work for it.
With the constant updates, AI is now better, you can adjust FOV, there's a good enough car representation on several classes... the game keeps getting better and better. The one thing that I wanted, and would make it a real gem in terms of racing, is more tracks. Maybe 5-8 more circuits. Missing american circuits such as Laguna Seca, Watkins Glen and Sonoma, and also a few others such as Interlagos.
PS: this game has better physics in F1 car than the F1 game. :)
Assetto Corsa shakes up the world of racing with a before unknown realism. Although realistic, there are several factors that makes that Assetto Corsa can't totally compete with Forza and Gran Turismo just yet.
Despite its amazing driving simulation, Assetto Corsa just doesn’t get the racing right. Out on track alone it feels amazing; there’s no denying the remarkable realism Kunos Simulazioni has captured here. Unfortunately the team just hasn’t been able to wrap a comprehensive or competitive racing experience around it this time.
This is a must own for everybody with a force feedback wheel. Believe me, every other driving on PS4 feels like a joke in comparison (except for DiRT Rally). I even thought my Thrustmaster 300 RS was kind of a disappointment, until I tried this true simulator. It just feels so right.

Despite its obsessive simulation objective this is not a great simulation game because it´s technically poor and gameplay is too difficult (at least with gamepad). Lacks of number tracks. I prefer by far Project Cars.
Project cars with more realistic FFB. No mods, Canadian exchange rate blows not spending $800 on a pc. Sense of speed blows. Graphics blow. Much less customization, for FFB that's good though. Cars and tracks blow. I bought it for 22 and 17 season pass . Season pass is pathetic.
Maybe this game made to spread frustration on basic controllers drivers, but mine wasn't high enough to put me out if my mind and go for a 350€ wheel...Maybe I'm wrong but the cheap sound design is more a PS1 simulation sound than a motor sound simulation, but who knows, with a nice steering wheel it can be a relatively un-consequent and accessory feature.
This game gets a solid 4 and that's being very generous. It's clear where all the time was spent in this game, and that's graphics and physics. While it's great to see the level of detail poured into the cars themselves and how you can tune them, there aren't enough cars or tracks to make this a really interesting game.
There are also some downright horribly programmed parts of this game. For instance, simply crossing the finish line on the lap last of the race and nothing really happens. In career mode, you're taken to the pits after a few seconds, and you just sit there while the game loads. It's like you're sitting in some sort of game purgatory and you're not sure what's going on. There's no music, and the clock starts over like you're going to start another race. It's just very awkward and confusing, and simple things like this show the faults of Assetto Corsa. Pick literally any other racing simulation or arcade game from the last 3 decades and it has a better race ending.
Career mode ****, it just does. It's boring and poorly imagined. You slowly move through different car brands and classes, starting with quite possibly the most boring car manufacturer from Italy: Abarth. You keep repeating the same tracks with the same sluggish cars, which feels like it's neverending. In other racing games like GT, Forza or even Need for Speed, the slower cars don't feel as boring as they do in Assetto Corsa.
Writing this review is about how I feel about Assetto Corsa: I just want to stop doing it. In short Assetto Corsa can't get by on its looks alone, and that's where it misses the mark. Maybe the PC version is a lot better, but this is just not a good game at all.
SummaryAssetto Corsa is 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 allows for considerable custom...
