What experts liked
Assetto Corsa becomes something of a word-of-mouth hit, impressing the sim fraternity with the depth of its physics simulation and the authenticity of its handling.
- Trusted Reviews
This is a game for the person who wants to shave seconds off their lap times, hone their driving skills and be significantly challenged while they’re doing it. Period.
- Auto Guide
It has twenty different track configurations.
- Car Bibles
Sure, the tracks and cars look superb.
- Push Square
August 25, 2016 | Full review
This is the sort of title made for true piston-headed racing fans that want to buy an expensive wheel and pedal setup and just sit down and drive for the sake of driving, all night, because that’s what they love to do. That’s where Assetto Corsa shines, when there’s a competent control method in play and when you are out on the track, doing the do.
- Critical Hit
Extremely realistic.
- Bag O Games
The special events game mode is addicting.
- Keen Gamer
What experts didn't like
The career mode is tedious and often frustrating, and the presentation makes it feel even nerdier and less accessible than it is.
- Trusted Reviews
There’s a career mode with a progression ladder to climb, but there’s no real rewards system and it doesn’t entice the playing to keep playing with goals to meet or unlocks. The AI is a bit dimwitted, and there’s not a whole lot of included vehicles and real-world tracks. Progressing through the career ladder is a bit of a slog, if we’re honest.
- Auto Guide
Poor career mode.
- Car Bibles
This game is hard. Really hard. It's the kind of game that punishes you so severely that mistiming a corner by even a split second is enough to wreck an entire championship weekend – and this applies even to the slower starting cars which seem to take an age to come to a stop.
- Push Square
August 25, 2016 | Full review
There’s no real feeling of progression and the only other alternative is a set of premade challenges that you can tackle.
- Critical Hit
Lack of anything new.
- Bag O Games
No car garage or personal aesthetic customization.
- Keen Gamer
