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.

U want a honest review?
First let me start by saying i have played this sim/racing game on another account that i completely forgot about that has 1500hrs on it easily, sooo yea i have 4000hrs in this and yes i have played this since it first came out(i have time to kill im retired basically).
Lets talk about stock AC (Assetto Corsa) by today's standards, mind you this sim is almost 8yrs old

8/10
-Plenty of cars and tracks to choose from so u can have fun at a nice price, goes on sell quite often (after you have setup your wheel and pedals properly or with controller or keyboard, AND get your FOV dialed in)
-U can get good/great fps even on a somewhat dated pc until u decide to do something crazy like race on the Nordschleife with every ai u can possibly fit or try VR
-Graphics, well its age shows right there :whooze:
-Physics, does just fine though some cars do feel extremely glued to the road or have broken aerodynamics or just drive like bricks ( so if u think ur going to just get in a Mclaren P1 and do some drifts like u seen on a few yt videos... well best of luck), but hey nothing is perfect especially something this old still does better than games like gts or pc2-3 imo

Now for the modded version of AC

MY GOD the modded community has done a number on this sim and for the better
10/10 ( if i get the right content )
-Between SOL(weather update), CSP (Custom Shaders Patch), CM (Content Manger), PPF (PostProcessingFilters) this sim looks like it belongs in a game trailer from this year, dont believe me? Just go inside the Screenshot channels of a DECENT AC discord server and look.
-There (i cant express this enough) are good and great mods and then there are bad and terrible mods be it tracks or cars etc, im not going to get into detail about because it would take forever to explain but to put it as short as possible there are some mods that look and drive worse than stock AC and there are mods that are just so much fun and everything feels natural u can get lost in this sim for hrs and hrs, just ask around in a DECENT AC discord server or go to RaceDepartment
Yes i would recommend this sim to anyone that has a love/ passion for cars but try not get too involved with the some of community, odds are you'll end up in argument with kids or adults who should honestly get off and get a job.

Review from Steam

I'm not very good at reading Steam descriptions. I somehow managed to miss the part where this was a simulator, and believed it would be a Forza-style racing game, or maybe a Gran Turismo experience. I wasn't prepared for the depth of simulation presented in this game. I had no racing equipment, not even a steering wheel. I did not enjoy the game.
But here's why it's good anyway.
Assetto Corsa is not a game where you jump in, do some drifting and jump out. It's an in-depth driving game with realistic vehicles and handling. It is recommended to get racing sim equipment, but you don't have to. Don't make the mistake I did, and make sure you figure out whether Assetto Corsa is right for you. If you, unlike me, are interested in an intense and realistic racing experience, this is the game for you.

Review from Steam

Played in VR and it is extremely immersive. Crashed at 300+km, got whiplash, and went into shock. Woke up three weeks later from a coma with my kidneys gone? Anyway 10/10 great game.

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.

Review from Steam

The base game is a solid 8/10. Great but not god tier. The AI in this game is "funny".
However, thanks to the modding community, the game is 11/10.
With the gas prices that high, this is the alternative.
