I'm the end Assetto Corsa may lean more towards the professional virtual racer which offers some great features and tweaks available for the gamer who wants to maximise their realistic experience. I also commend the developers on creating such as engaging title but it does border a little on budget when compared to other games of this calibre but the cars look great and they handle how they should. The career mode is in-depth and the other modes are fun, especially the events and of course multiplayer which is where this title shined for me.

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.

Without having to pay for iRacing or rFactor, Assetto Corsa Competizione is as real as it gets when getting behind the wheel.

The higher class of racing fan may come to appreciate Assetto Corsa, but to the rest of the driving crowd, it'll simply feel like Ass.

In conclusion, ignoring the stat glitches, lack of private lobbies and the somewhat questionable way the game is packaged, what's underneath the hood is seriously impressive. Any dedicated racing nuts who feel like testing themselves at the wheel on console should look no further. While there are other console games, such as Project CARS, with more cars and more courses, claiming also to be serious racers, Assetto Corsa undeniably owns the genre on console now, due to its uncompromising and unwavering dedication to realism. For now, there's nothing better for that on console. It's just a shame that it lacks the polish and omits some major draws, such as private online lobbies, which stop it from being considered a classic.

Assetto Corsa is now available for consoles, and while it manages to stay true to its roots, some of the features have been stripped down.

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

It's a shame really, it really is. I like the PC version of this game, and was excited for it to come to console, it just seems that they haven't quiet managed to pull it off, but fingers crossed it will be fixed in the future. Better late than never.

Really the appeal of Assetto Corsa is in taking control of Lamborghinis and Ferraris and racing around tracks that are really beautiful for high precision cars that have good acceleration built into them. It's far more focused on what it does well than many other racing games, and unfortunately the overall package suffers a little as a consequence, but I just can't get over how much I accelerating out of corners in this one.

An exceptional racing simulator, with an edge like no other, which ironically lacks the final polish, which bars it from greatness.

While it may provide a great simulation for the hardcore racer, Assetto Corsa will leave the more casual racing audience behind.

Assetto Corsa is definitely a solid driving simulation. Although it is let down by the lack of content, this is definitely one of the most realistic simulators around. I tend to prefer a little more fun, and if not, would like a bit more help in terms of tutorials on offer which I mentioned above. I think if you had a decent steering wheel, that is where Assetto Corsa could become one hell of an experience. If they do plan on doing a second one down the line, a more complete and meaningful Career Mode would definitely mean a higher score from me. Assetto Corsa is more frustrating than anything, and one that is only for the very hardcore driving fans out there.

I'm left with a disappointing feeling, the console version for Assetto Corsa is not what I was expecting. The terrible frame rate issues and AI mistakes completely ruin what a racing simulation game should be.

It may come with some of the best driving physics to ever grace a console, but they come at the cost of everything else that makes console racers any good.

It's in dire need of a patch to fix the difficulty, but unfortunately no patch will solve the screen tearing and frame rate issues… and in a racing game there is no bigger sin.

Die herausragende Physik, welche selbst den Reifendruck und Abtrieb genauestens simuliert, fordert mich als Spieler insbesondere in den ersten Rennen enorm. Dabei ist es wenig hilfreich, ohne dynamische Ideallinie auf den Rundkursen unterwegs zu sein. Auch hätte dem Spiel ein Tutorial zu den wichtigsten Einstellungen am Auto gut getan, um so auch weniger versierte Spieler besser in die Welt des Motorsports integrieren zu können. Selten war eine Fahrphysik derart realistisch abgebildet wie hier. Entsprechend werden Fehler hart bestraft, sodass der Schwierigkeitsgrad hoch und die Lernkurve möglicherweise zu fordernd sind. Die überarbeitete Gamepad-Steuerung sowie die angepasste KI machen es absoluten Beginnern dennoch schon wesentlich leichter, in die Motorsportwelt abzutauchen, als noch zu Release. Visuell muss sich Assetto Corda deutlich hinter dem kürzlich veröffentlichten F1 2016 einordnen und wer eben mal nur kurz eine Runde fahren möchte, ist dort ohnehin besser aufgehoben. Erst nach einiger Einarbeitungszeit lässt sich die vielleicht beste und am ehesten realistische Fahrphysik auf Konsolen wirklich genießen. Hier spielt Assetto Corsa aber in einer eigenen Liga und lässt selbst Rennspielveteranen ins Schwitzen kommen. Sehr löblich: Die Entwickler bemühen sich, nah mit der Community zusammenzuarbeiten, und haben mit dem kürzlich erschienenen Patch gezeigt, dass sie das Spiel weiter auf die richtige Bahn lenken wollen. Wenn die Jungs hier am Ball bleiben und weiterhin Bonus-Content nachschieben, bietet sich Assetto Corsa durchaus als Alternative zu anderen Genre-Vertretern auf Konsolen an. Das gilt ebenso für Simulationspuristen wie Anfänger, wenngleich letztere sich erst einmal durch die harte Lernkurve kämpfen müssen. Umso größer sind aber die Glücksgefühle, wenn eine fehlerfreie Runde oder die Bestzeit unterboten wird.

Assetto Corsa is a perfect example of ambition. Kunos Simulazioni is not a very big studio but that didn't stop them from working hard to release a simulation game that can compete against existing series. Yet the studio fell short of delivering the expected and necessary standard to pose any real threat to other driving simulation games out there.
