    Assetto Corsa is the new benchmark for console racing games, truly a masterpiece, the real driving simulation.

    This simulator is everything that fans of racing can ask for. There isn’t any other game that achieves its feeling of driving a car at a high speed while you struggle with the steering wheel and try to get some tenths of a second at every corner.

    A true racing simulator that may not be appealing for every player, but manages to offer a different view of the racing genre on consoles.

    It's a bit simplistic, but other than that, Assetto Corsa is a fine racing simulator.

    Gritty and realistic, Assetto Corsa is for serious racing fans. It lacks finesse, but it's one of the best racers on the market.

    Assetto Corsa does a lot right, and a lot wrong. It does; however, get the gameplay right which is far and away the most important aspect in racers, even if it fails to deliver a compelling career mode. In its Special Events mode the game shows off its best side while the career mode is average at best. Not to mention the antiquated look cannot be ignored. That being said, Assetto Corsa has a unique tone and feel that differentiates it enough from the competition.

    Hopefully the game grows over time. I know Evolution Studios turned Driveclub into an enjoyable experience after a failed launch. Maybe Kunos Simulazioni can do the same for Assetto Corsa.

Assetto Corsa really shines where it counts most: The driving feeling. Even though it feels incredibly realistic and organic, it's actually pretty easy to pick up. What I don't understand: This game was never advertised as arcady game or equivalent to GT or Forza. So what are you complaining about? You will not get a better driving experience on console. If you own a wheel, this is a must buy! Expand

    Very impressive motorsport game. Its physics is amazing, providing the best sensations I've ever experienced in a racing game. Up to now, IVery impressive motorsport game. Its physics is amazing, providing the best sensations I've ever experienced in a racing game. Up to now, I had only played Forza and Project Cars. Although I had been satisfied with PCars and somewhat tired of Forza (too much fanfare and bad Force Feedback for wheel users), Assetto was a surprise I couldn't expect. Perhaps it still needs some minor improvements in terms of visuals, but nothing much IMO. I believe this game has lots of potential to become as beautiful as Project Cars, with a far better playability. As a SIM, a steering wheel is highly recommended to play it, for more immersion, although it's playable with a pad. The cars count is good enough, with a great selection of highly polished and desirable machines. To me, a higher count of tracks would be very welcome, but chances are new future additions would include new locations to fill in this gap. In short, this is a straight-to-the-point game with a nice visual, whose focus is entirely centered on racing and having fun with cars on the tracks. If you prefer to spend time painting, customizing and collecting cars rather than racing with them, maybe this is not the game for you. Expand

    If what you are looking for is the best, most accurate driving representation of driving a car, this is the best game out there on consoles.If what you are looking for is the best, most accurate driving representation of driving a car, this is the best game out there on consoles. Physics and FFB feel amazing, every single car feels different. Graphics are good although there isn't as much 'decoration' as most simcade racing games tend to offer it's just you, the track and your opponents. Sounds are excellent too. Buy this if you own a racing wheel you won't regret it. Stay clear if you are looking for a lighthearted racing game as this is just about the driving/ racing in a realistic way and the AI won't make it easy for you. Expand

    Not a great game, they promised 60 fps but feels like 30fps. After 30 minutes driving i feel tired but can play other racers for hours on endNot a great game, they promised 60 fps but feels like 30fps. After 30 minutes driving i feel tired but can play other racers for hours on end with no problem. Fed up with developers promising the world then delivering half baked efforts. A waste of £30 as i already have pcars which is miles better 8( Expand

There´s nothing to do in the game: online is barebones without private lobbies, public games are full of rammers and the same combos are always on top of the list. Single player is rubbish. All you can do is hotlapping and it gets old soon.

    The content is poorly distributed, we have a hundred road cars, sometimes almost equal to each other, and just a couple dozens of race cars (and almost all of them are GT3 cars, bo-ring).

    If they can add features and cars this will be a blast. Otherwise, it will stay a failure. It was cheap and I still regret buying.
