Is this a free game or something?

Ok , I love racing games. I have more racing games then any other type in my collection. I haven't played a ton of Assetto yet but I'll tell you my thoughts so far. I have it on the PS4.

Graphics - Sub par , cars and tracks look decent but dated. I'm seeing some frame rate issues also, usually happens when turning a corner, the environment stutters a bit.

Controls - if you are going to use a controller try these settings. I've spent 2 hours running practice laps with the same car on the same track trying to get the ridiculous looking steering wheel movement under control. This is what I've got so far.

In options under advanced:
Vibration 0%
Speed sensitivity 5%
Steering speed 0%
Steering dead zone 50%
Steering filter 45%
Steering gamma 220%
These are a lot less herky jerky then the default settings.

The game as I said looks a bit dated. As I play it I keep getting reminded of the game Race Pro that was out for the Xbox 360. That was a solid racing game but didn't look as pretty as others, same here.

So far most of my time has been spent in practice mode testing. I did run two races, one on medium, and one on easy. The medium race the A.I. was gone in the first 100 feet, they blew me away. On easy it took them half a lap to completely lose me. Seriously I got my butt handed to me in both races.

I'm going to need more time for a final decision but at this point I don't see the need to buy this game. It's good , but not great. It has some nice tracks and cars but a game like Project Cars is better in every way. I wish I spent the money on F1 2016 instead. I'll be back after I get some serious hours in and see if my opinion changes.

Well after spending a couple more hours with the game I can't recommend it. There are other racing games out there that are much better.

I didn't think the game looked very good, so I'm not surprised by your impressions. Guess I'll stick to F1 being my next racer.

I was less than impressed with it on PC even with mods and tracks. I think it might be a good buy when its $20 or less.

I like AC on PC, however racing against AI is pretty bad and from what I'm hearing, it's bad on console versions too.

If you're into racing sims, wait for the game to go on sale or drop in price.
