    Assetto Corsa Competizione offers the best sim racing experience on the market in terms of feeling, immersion and handling. There's still room to polish and improve some features and add more content, but Kunos Simulazioni just had a burning start and goes straight to the first corner leading the group.

    Kunos Simulazioni brings the Blancpain Championship in our homes, and we don’t need either the GT superlicence to drive it.

    Great simulation model with night driving and accurated weather conditions. Career mode and multiplayer aren't perfect and lack of some interesting feature.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione is a must have for any car simulation fan. He breathes passion and realism. However, if it does not reach excellence at the time of this review, it is simply because it presents too many bugs. You will play it, sooner or later...

    Gameplay-wise, this game is fantastic. Unfortunately, the modes for single player and multiplayer are very limited, and it does lack content. We hope this is fixed over time, since the core is very solid.

    It is far from the large numbers of other simulators in terms of content and great aspirations in online championships, but achieves seriousness in multiplayer racing thanks to its servers and entry requirements. A serious and challenging experience, but little bulky in content.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione has the skeleton of an exceptional racing simulation, but Kunos' efforts to flesh out the breathtaking engine and tight mechanics are ultimately paper-thin.

    Fantastic sensations! Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) is a blast and I highly recommend it. I have pretty much all racing sims (PC2, GTFantastic sensations! Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) is a blast and I highly recommend it. I have pretty much all racing sims (PC2, GT Sports, iracing, Forza 7 etc...) so it is easy for me to compare
    The good:
    - The driving experience is one of the best. I would say it is between the realism of ircacing and the fun of PC2. The feedback with my T-GT is just awesome although personally I find it a bit too strong and it needs to be tweaked.
    - The audio is very impressive, the engines sound really good. Hands down the best I have experienced and it truly helps for the immersion.
    - Finally a multiplayer game mode that this is easy to get into for people who dont have GT Sport or a subscription to ircaing. The multiplayer take a lot from GT Sport and ircacing and that's great! Easy to get into a race and compete with other people. I would love to have a ranking system or something similar.
    - Graphics are gorgeous and I really enjoy the colors and sharpness of the images.
    - The VR is quite good. i use an HTC Vive Pro and RTX 2080 ti with which PC2 looks very ugly. Only ircaing looks OK. But ACC really did well with its VR mode with much less screen door effect. It is quite enjoyable.

    The Bad:
    - Too few tracks. I hope we can get more tracks in the following updates.
    - Still some random crashes. i know the game was just released so I hope this gets sorted out fast.

    The Ugly:
    - I know the game focuses on GT3 but having a bit more cars would be nice.

    All in all, ACC is an amazing racing sim for the price. I highly recommend it but I hope the devs can fix the crashes.

    ACC is first of all an excellent simulator, excellent.

    The physics are great, the handling feels real and heavy. Good atmosphere
    ACC is first of all an excellent simulator, excellent.

    The physics are great, the handling feels real and heavy.

    Good atmosphere because of the graphics and, in my opinion, by far the best sound in sim-racing.

    Also in my almost 90 hours of playing I had some real nice, clean and fair multiplayer races.

    Still, some bugs and some hiccups, but I really think that, with time, this will be a classic.

    Hats off Kunos!

    Perfect physics. Day and night circle. Superb rain physics. Graphic is on top. At the moment: there are bugs, that will be removed by Kunos.Perfect physics. Day and night circle. Superb rain physics. Graphic is on top. At the moment: there are bugs, that will be removed by Kunos. At the moment: some settings are missing (for example: you cannot use your wheel and your keyboard simultaneously). Online multi-player works since update to 1.0.1 very good. Every car feels different. Tire simulation is one of the best - if not the best - on the market. I'm in love with the simulation. If the bugs are removed and the settings are added: The game gets a 10 out of 10. At the moment it's still a very, very enjoyable game. I love it! Expand

    Thank you guys and gals at Kunos for having created such a distinct racing

    Thank you guys and gals at Kunos for having created such a distinct racing sim!
    ... unfortunately it has its flaws especially if you are a VR aficionado!

    The driving experience with my T300RS wheel was simply the best to date, great weight to the car, good feedback from all elements on track although I must agree with #MarkRace about the issue where clipping the curb feels VERY punishing!
    The graphics are amazing but require a serious PC even to get medium spec graphics. Daylight and solo time trials are fine (@ 60fps 1440p on a i7 7700 cpu / gtx 1070) but add in 16 plus AI cars, night conditions and rain, it all comes to a stand still.
    I primarily drive with a Rift and the same performance issues arise, great solo driving experience, add AI and I get a few corners that slow down, add any rain/night effects and it is simply unplayable.
    The career is very narrow (compared to Project Cars 2) but functions fine in this category specific title. Car numbers should never be a factor since you know what you get in racing titles: either 600 cars that all feel the same or 10 cars that are full of character. This title is clearly the later and portrays them all very well, great job Kunos!
    VR is the real sticky point (drops my review from an 8 to a 6)... VR UI is absolutely useless, clipping through the body work of my car, can't read anything. No real integration for typing (enter your driver name is the most dreaded activity: take off Rift, no UI on my PC monitor so type on keyboard, put on Rift, check name correct, take off, press TAB on keyboard to go to next text field, type, put on Rift, check OK, take off rift... etc) absolute nightmare! You might as well start career without VR and then restart game after first races in VR.
    VR performance is really an issue, reducing the settings changes NOTHING to how bad the VR performance is.
    Yet I love the feel and will go around and round the solo tracks in daylight for hours until they fix the performance in race / night / rain... or I get a Titan RTX with I9 CPU for a mere 3000$ just to play the full game.

    Hope this helps, especially anyone willing to play this with low / mid end PC with VR... forget it!

The reason I refunded it is because it doesn't have mouse support in VR and you can't use a keyboard/button box with a wheel. Sorry, if I wanted to play GT Sport I'd turn on my PS4. Hopefully they'll patch those in and I may purchase it, again. Expand

    Yet another case of broken release that maybe (or maybe not) will be fixed later.

    Lot of crashes, the devs have no idea how to use Unreal
    Yet another case of broken release that maybe (or maybe not) will be fixed later.

    Lot of crashes, the devs have no idea how to use Unreal Engine apparently.

    Missing advertised features like an actual career mode (it was promised as the real GT3 experience but is just empty practice sessions).

    VR is a mess, no triple monitor support, no TrackIR support... are this guys even simracers themselves???

    The game requires a monster pc to run at anything else than 1080p 40fps. Zero optimization.

    What they call "advanced matchmaking" is a marketing lie and nothing like GTS or iRacing, but just a server filter, welcome to 1996 boys!

    Force feedback is dull and useless because they refused (by design) to add extra effects (like understeering fx in most games), so unless you have a $1500 direct drive wheel you are out of luck, sorry, don't be poor next time.

    So in conclusion, a poor game in the technical side, full of awful design decisions, with nothing new compared to competitors, deceiving marketing, only 10 cars, and online that is already dead.

    Avoid as the plague.
