Unless you're looking for e-sports quality competitive online multiplayer leagues, this is the BEST sim out there for force feedback wheels; it detects different wheels, pedals, shifters, handbrakes (on different USB devices!) seamlessly; with the must have community-made Content Manager, changing settings for switching out wheels (F1 vs Drift) or accessories (H Shifter Vs Paddles) is easier than in any other game.

Base game itself doesn't offer too much.
1. Install Content Manager
- Custom Launcher/Management/Graphics app (Install in Root folder)
2. Get some custom Tracks/Cars (Drag Zip/Rar into Content Manager, Install)
3. Select Track/Car & Drive
Content manager is nice because it skips the loading screens/credits getting you in game quicker.

was driving a mitsubishi lancer evo 4 down the shutoko revival project, meet this guy on a green skyline, I crash he wait, he crash I wait, we drive around for one hour straight until the server resets without chatting.

Assetto Corsa is one of the best racing sim out there, but NOT out of the box!
As soon as you download the game, Install:
1. Content Manager - Good launcher + Mod support + CSP (Custom Shaders Patch)
2. SOL - Dynamic Weather + Filters
Now Assetto Corsa is ready to be EXPERIENCED!
Doing that will make your graphics incredible, replace the shit interface/main menu of the game, add easy mod support and various tweaks and fixes! You will always launch the game from Content manager and you would be overwhelmed by the amount of stuffs!
I do not qualify as a good racing sim player, but I do have experience with Forza Motorsport 7 and Project Cars. I must admit this game is much harder initially, it took me hours to just be able to even drive on track. The AI is very very hard to compete so I still play at lowest AI difficulty and they can still sometimes pose challenge to me (using Controller, keyboard doesn't very efficient). So unsurprisingly time trial are lot easier than races. XD
Its very unforgiving game since there is no rewind and no dynamic race line (like in Forza).
For all new players or arcade racers like me, I would suggest to just play at lowest AI difficulty, "Gamer" preset and enable race line. Initial track and car can be shit so don't discourage yourself as you will get better cars in later stages.
This game is sim racer, DO NOT expect More W = Better position!
Also check this interesting long Japanese highway project - Shutoko Revival Project

Review from Steam

This game has a modding scene like no other.
I am literally creating/modeling a 3D recreation of my city where I live in.
Now I can finally do a trick what every young Latvian wants - wrap your car around a pole in IKEA parking lot.

Review from Steam

If you are thinking of buying this game/simulator.
First, Get the Ultimate Edition. If you don’t have the money, Wishlisted it and wait for Steam sale which discount the game by a lot. Don’t be like me and had to buy every single DLC separately.
Secondly, Assetto Corsa might not be fun, particularly for the casual player. Please understand that this game has a learning curve which is explain below. If you are a car guy/girl who play racing game, please still read this.
Assetto Corsa is a racing simulator that in aim to recreate real life driving as close as possible. This means that all the steering and driving input using any type of input whether it’s on a Racing Wheel, Game Controller analog stick, mouse using mouse steer or keyboard (which is not recommend, please do not try playing with a keyboard) is controlling the steering wheel of the car not the car itself. So, precision controlling the steering is a must to be able to play this game/simulator. The player can turn the steering wheel too much or the car won’t turn (this is call understeer). Therefore, it’s not recommend playing with a keyboard because keyboard input is not precise enough and will turn the steering wheel all the way. At the very least use mouse to steer (there is an option in the setting) might be hard at first but if you do have any other controller. For game controller user, Same apply to you just don’t push the analog stick too far and you will be good.
If you understand this, with a lot of practice, you will have enjoyable time with this game/simulator. This game/simulator is launcher base meaning if you press start to start driving in game but to change any setting you need to do most of it is in the launcher. Which to be honest, the launcher UI is pretty bad. Assetto Corsa have no story. The game is started with the launcher which give access to so Career mode, Quick Play mode, Practice, Online etc. Career mode is for gathering medals for completing races or time trials on set tracks with set cars of someone look of a goal to play toward or go play Assetto Corsa Compettizone but the main part of this game is about driving the car so I would suggest playing the Practice for the driving experience. I’m not sure that for casual player Assetto Corsa is fun but if you can drive fast in this game/simulator it will made you a better driver. If the content is this game is not enough for you. You haven’t seen the Mods for Assetto Corsa. This game got a lot of support from the community. First of all, Content Manager which have lot of improvement to the game including the UI and is a platform for Custom Shader Patch graphic mods which is highly recommended and other mods to install into your game. For more information, YouTube, Discord Channel, Google and forum is your friend.
So in short, Yes, Assetto Corsa one of the most realistic racing game of all time. If you learn to play and practice this game/simulator and love to drive cars this game is for you. Just be prepare to spin out on the very first corner (or every corner) and deal with the UI. Go and experience it for yourself.
