    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.

    I have been following the game since the day they showed us the trailer and till this day i have been reading forums and every single post literally :D (i know no life bla bla)

    I am big fan of the game for couple of reasons. I LOVE GT3 cars... This game introduced me to Blancpain GT Series witch i have been following last 4 years. And its a great journey.. Amazing races.. crown jewel of them is SPA 24h my dream now is to attend one of those :)

    Back on to the game review:

    Content
    1.0 version of the game brings Official 2018 season content.. witch means 10 tracks and 18 cars(13 manufacturers)
    and already confirmed FREE UPDATE later this year of 2019 season witch will bring 1 new track and 6-7 new cars confirmed by far.

    Tracks
    laserscaned so you can feel every bump while driving..
    Cars
    each car has its own personality whole different driving adjustment when you switch from lambo to bentley lets say.. crazy how all cars act so different along with amazing details on them interactive interior where you can see buttons move and animation of driver doing it,rubber dirt,spot on details on liveries from real cars, even LED strips for endurance racing on cars were reproduced spot on as close to real life counterpart as possible.

    Campaign
    Witch has real life driver coaching you trough the youngster program until you get approved to do full season racing.

    And next to all that bunch of small options to fiddle around and create your own fun do as you wish no unlocking of content etc.

    SOUNDS
    Sounds in the game are amazing. No comment.. ear bleeding from how loud some cars are...drooling how good some cars sound..and if you compare them to the real life footage they are spot on..

    MULTIPLAYER
    Multiplayer is a whole new level of the game. Your driving is scored on advanced rating witch is ruining on servers and by your skills you will be matched with people same skill for better racing experience.

    Penalty system witch will not let cheaters go around that easy... (Good luck serving drive trough on SPA :D )

    Online QUICK JOIN button, yes now there is quick join button where game will automatically find the best fitting serveer for you. Or if you already have your ratings worked out you can enter CP(competitive) servers where situation is more competitive etc.

    or use good old Server Browser and find what you like and want :)

    From my personal expirience MULTIPLAYER has been so much fun..doing public races doing closed in sessions races...its just hours and hours of fun for me.

    Feeling of adrenaline rush when you are doing qualis and you end up on top places with just 0.1-3xx in between top 10
    when you start doing formation lap..and hit green lights and you floor it... when you do longer races and fight for survival fight against the all odds... if you like that this game is definitely for you.. excitement when you have 2-3 corners of side by side driving.. hoohh..

    Now if you want to listen what some people expectations were and their wishes did not get granted, (that the reason for so many negative reviews) people expected iRacing type of multiplayer for 25€ game and developers said they will not have that and people gone mad.. merge that with some youtubers covering that ♥♥♥♥♥torm and bam people that barely touched the game leaving reviews how game is bad..

    Physics and FFB
    Now this is touchy topic but its must.. I own a G27 (yes yes i know entry wheel not DD etc.)
    I have it set so game feels so good on the wheel so i can feel all the car movement on the wheel little slip of the car i am on it and correcting it.. when i spin i can feel the rubber scraping the tarmac until car comes to a stop. Bumps curbs,you can feel it everything. FFB on G27 for me its perfect.. different wheels may differ but putting some time and setting up wheel is worth it.

    ¸Graphics/Weather/24h day and night cycle

    Graphics is top notch...game looks amazing no doubt about it.. no racing game looks like this and delivers amount of detail ACC does.
    Weather- most wanted feature from AC came to ACC and its RAIN. Developers really nailed it with this one.. Rain and driving on rain is scary AF. And i mean it..fighting a car trough the track even on wet tires(on stronger rain) its crazy and surreal feeling. You can feel the puddles on the FFB you can feel how your wheel is dancing on the track that does not have grip... you can f

    V1.07 August 2019 Review

    With current-generation racing games, updates make a big difference and none more so than ACC v1.07 released this week. As a driving experience, this game is now superb on dry tracks and the more challenging night and wet conditions. The feel and feedback in the wheel is exceptional with subtle and meaningful feedback.

    The overall gameplay such as the career mode, leaderboards and hotstint challenges still require further work which is why this remains an 8/10 score rather than anything higher. If you are looking for a great pure and real driving experience this is it.

    -----------Previous Launch Day Review 4/10 ----------------

    An excellent driving experience spoiled by frequent bugs, crashes, poor VR performance and an old fashioned career mode with questionable design. For a game called Competizione the online is multiplayer is outdated with frequent performance problems and crashes.

    An overall score doesn' give enough detail on the positives and negatives in this game. Here are my ratings for each element of the game I have tried.

    9.5/10 - general driving experience, TX458 wheel force feedback, car behaviour, night and especially wet weather feel so realistic. I've driven a lot of real world wet laps and medium rain with some standing water feels just right in terms of impact on the car and feel through the wheel. The .5 is lost for those odd spins when the front inside wheel hits a kerb, it's never happened to me in real life, it looks wrong in the replays but it is something I've learned to drive around in this game. Currently, the best way to experience this game is just as it was in Early Access the Special Event hot lap, hot stint and Super Pole sessions which encourage the player to drive different cars in a range of challenging track and weather conditions. As a hot lapping game, it is recommended. The rest of the game does not match this standard.

    9/10 - racing the AI in single player. They are great to race with, leave space but no pushovers and fight back. More AI vs AI battling on track, would be good, there is some but more would be better.

    5/10 - VR is only really viable in good conditions and with a lot of settings reduced. It's worse than it was in EA. VR performance in multiplayer is awful and not really playable. Pretty much a current top spec PC is required to even run VR and then it is often fuzzy. Kunos, the developer has since removed the VR tag from Steam which is a dodgy post-launch move.

    4/10 - Multiplayer, it the usual pub racing. That is not Kunos's fault, that's 'sim' racing in multiplayer in general it seems. However, there are way too many PC crashes and bugs (races not starting after rolling start etc). Rating system (which I really enjoy) seems pretty much irrelevant at this stage.

    2/10 - Career oh deary me. 1997 wants it's career mode back, TOCA games were better than this. Too many crashes (latest after the Misano tyre test has ended), inexplicable design choice not to allow saving between sessions. It isn't a career it's a bunch of hot laps challenges and races stitched together. If the F1 games from 2016 onward hadn't been invented or the GT medal challenge system and track trainer etc never existed maybe they'd get away with this. Just seems so tacked on. So much potential here. If they are going to console (they'll need to sort out the performance issues, no current console would run this game) the career needs serious work.

    All that said when it all works in a VR single player race (or those occasional moments when MP in the normal screen is free of crashers and chaos) it's just so good.

    Overall then ACC remains like owning a 90's Italian Supercar when everything is working and you're driving it as intended the passion shines through in the looks, sound and perfect driver feedback. Just like owning the supercar you've got to work at the experience to get the most from it. Glance away from the driving experience and you start to notice the flaws, the panel gaps, the expensive parts (especially for VR/4K) the buttons that don't work, the confusing menus that make no real sense and how often things go wrong. Some will be prepared to work at it for those few moments and forgive all that. The rest of us would prefer some Japanese GTR type focus and German efficiency were added so that the whole experience matched the driving. Then you could fire it up and enjoy every drive, not just the 2/10 when the stars align and it all somehow works.

    If you like hot lapping and racing the AI it's worth playing now. If you want anything like a stable multiplayer game, are looking for good VR experiences and prefer career mode it's best to wait. Given Kunos's track record I expect the driving experience to remain strong and improve but the rest of the game is likely to lag behind that experience.

    a great driving experience but there are much better racing games that actually wor

    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

    So much hope and so little delivery. This sim promised a lot and delivered well short of expectations. Forget the multiplayer expectations, weSo much hope and so little delivery. This sim promised a lot and delivered well short of expectations. Forget the multiplayer expectations, we all got over that. The AI is just woeful, the UI is clunky as anything, the variety is non-existant (but we know it was GT3 only, so that's fine), the multiplayer is a ghost town, but the VR.... the VR is just astoundingly, mindblowingly awful in every way.

    Kunos have been very defensive about it when asked because they know that UE4 is not capable as a racing VR engine. They admitted that on their forums.

    This sim is awful, Kunos have admitted that it can't be fixed in future due to the limitations of the engine and I have to say that despite the better FFB and laser scanned tracks, this is a step (or 10) backwards from the original AC.

    We're now many patches in and all they've done is add more and more bugs.

    Avoid it.
