If you are a big fan of racing sims then Assetto Corsa by Kunos Simulazioni is for you. Designed with a keen attention to detail and an emphasis on keeping a realistic racing environment, its highlights include extensive customisation and its support of community modifications. Blast through loads of tracks set all around the world alone or with friends in this stylish racer.
The gameplay of this title is as you would expect as its driving simulator after all but don’t let that make you think that they are all identical. This game offers a delightful laser focus on what it offers, great driving in a beautiful world in stunning cars but with a nice amount of variety. I will admit outright that this game can be hard as it focuses more on the simulation aspect and let’s be honest; being a race car driver is hard. It is, arguably, one of the best racing simulations that I have ever played.
This game finds itself in excellent standing and stands in place alongside long-time industry titans such as Gran Turismo Sport, Project CARS 2, and Forza Motorsport 7. A great amount of tech and attention to detail went into the creation of Assetto, collision detection, rigid body physics, developed in the Unity engine it looks stunning in every shot. Throughout the game I found its user interface to be very easy to work with made the game easier to play due to that, especially in regard to the incredible amount of customisation. On top of all that, the controls are tight and have been perfectly implemented; all the cars have a satisfying weight to them that makes racing an absolute joy.
Although this game may not have a tremendous amount of tracks, with a total of about 45, but something I found to be interesting is Assetto’s blend of real existing tracks and fictional tracks that they created themselves.
What absolutely blew me away about this title was its incredible fluidity when it comes to being able to customize and adjust your vehicle. You are provided with a setup interface and this will allow you to adjust a great many aspects of your vehicle, including but not limited to, tyre compounds and pressures, fuel, suspension settings, alignment settings, ride height, wheel rates and so, so much more.
If you like a game that allows you to customise, you will not only be pleased but you will be downright impressed by what this game offers you. And to top it all off, this game has been given extensive modding support, allowing the community to create additional cars and tracks that comes complete with everything you need to get on it.
If you love a racing simulation and thirst for one that gives you a ridiculous amount of customisation then this is, without a doubt, the game for you. I had a really great time playing it and I know you will too.
