    It's a brilliant simulation, but it comes at the price of even being called a game.

    If you give this game a chance, you can expect full reward in return. Others can feel it as wasted money, because Assetto is still rather experiment and beta version than a proper game even after two years. The console version of the successful racing simulator fully demonstrates the weaknesses of small teams and big ambitions.

    Uncompromising and dedicated to the art of driving. This one's only for genre fans. [Nov 2016, p.81]

    When racing you versus the track Assetto Corsa is hands down the best available simulator. Venture beyond this, however, and there's disappointment to be had at every turn.

    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.

    In comparison to beautiful, fluid, rich Forza Motorsport 6 Assetto Corsa seems amateurish and I see no point in wasting time on looking for its alleged awesomeness when every platform offers at least one better racing game. [11/2016, p.66]

    I personally can’t think of a reason to play this game when there is already Forza Motorsport 6, which is superior in every aspect you can think of.

    It’s a real shame that Assetto Corsa is stuck with uninspiring modes and presentation issues as the actual act of driving is engrossing and rewarding.

    No rain, no night mode, no car customization, no custom lobbies and community is really toxic (look at these people giving it 10/10 score).No rain, no night mode, no car customization, no custom lobbies and community is really toxic (look at these people giving it 10/10 score). Unless you speed 300$ on wheel, get Forza 6, as driving with controller is crap unless stability control is turned on, but then physic become even more arcade than Forza's one. Full Review »

    Has a lot of major frame rate drops, big time screen tearing, career mode is lacking. No incentive to continue in career mode since everythingHas a lot of major frame rate drops, big time screen tearing, career mode is lacking. No incentive to continue in career mode since everything is unlocked from the start. The menus are constantly bombarded by in app DLC. It has no weather system at all. Online doesnt work. The concept of the game is severely held back by all the major technical problems. Controls really bad with a controller. Meant with a wheel and even with a wheel it gives no customization options. You are left with default settings with the wheel. Not worth a buy at MSRP of $60. Full Review »

    Unfortunately the developers have launched what can only be described as an incomplete game with many issues that need to be addressed. TheUnfortunately the developers have launched what can only be described as an incomplete game with many issues that need to be addressed. The only current redeeming feature of this game is that the handling and physics model are as good as the pc version. The console version at release looks similar to early pre release beta versions of the game. The online multiplayer segment of this game remains broken with unplayable framerate issues despite a patch to fix the issue. More fundamentally the career mode includes a number of impossible to complete events due to the seeming absence of any game testing. There are no custom control settings, no controller calibration, several important controls are missing ef the look back button and you can either choose DRS or Handbrake, not both. The developers will only give 'soon' as a date for any fix and are incredibly vague about what those fixes might be. If you like hot lapping alone the game has some charm but that has to be balanced with the total absence of leaderboards. As it stands it is impossible to recommend buying this game until significant updates and fixes are applied. The truly unanswered questions is why the console version is so out of date compared to the current pc release. The official forum is another concern, a tightly controlled closed lobby that rejects criticism where PC elitists lurk to make uninformed comments based on the a version of the game console owners do not have access to. How video game makers are allowed to get away with releasing unfinished games like this is beyond me. Avoid this game until you hear and see plenty of footage confirming the fixes have been applied.
