Review: Assetto Corsa Competizione


- Advertisement -

Do you have what it takes to be a great racer? All you need to do is take a seat in front of the steering wheel, both hands holding on tight, the gas pedal continuously being pressed and the wheels spinning so hard that it burns marks right into the pavement as you turn at each corner. If so, well it’s time for you to try Assetto Corsa Competizione, a game that really will keep your eyes captivated on the screen. As well as engaged by each hand on either a controller or wheel, forcing you to quickly decide which button to press or move to make by steering and speeding past other racers on the circuit.

This game will make you feel like you’ve entered into a real race, just as it should with everything featured in this realistic simulated experience. Plus, with so many quality vehicles to drive, the graphics that look so close to seeing the outdoors of a circuit and even the sound effects are so unbelievably real, it’s hard not to feel as if you are honestly racing in real life. It also truly helps by the well-designed viewpoints of the inside and out of each car driven.

Keeping Steady And The Will To Win The Race

Being my first time playing such a realistic racing game, it does really show promise to please many as well as myself. I honestly can’t believe how astounding the graphics really are, and one of the most exciting experiences to watch as well as play! I’m quite intrigued by the realistic effects that occur on the circuit, from damages taken to the vehicle, as well as the knowledge needed to know how to drive. Plus, if you add in the environmental design of each background, how close it appears to the real thing, well that just perfection even more!

I honestly enjoyed hearing the engine roar, while revving it up during a race. Having real lights on the vehicle I choose to turn on during the night, as well as many other functions to work just as well. It’s just so much like a real vehicle or even a well-resemblance of a real racing car. In my opinion, there is nothing left out, no lag in the movements, or even the graphics. Yet, this review is in regards to playing it on an Xbox One console, not even the newer Xbox Series that others may play it on. So if it’s great on an older console, it must be excellent on a newer one!

There is one difficulty I’d like to point out. A problem that may only be hard for a bit or depends on those who played any recent or similar racing games like this one. It’s nothing to fear, but something that may take a little bit of time to learn. This is actually more about the controller and the many buttons that are used to move the vehicle you’ll be driving. Not the actual game I’m referring to.

I know from my experience, it’s something that won’t come so easy to learn, by whoever plays the game for the first time. Yet, this is normal, As with all simulated-style games, it does require a bit of practice. I had to understand it a bit more before moving forward and trying to race others through the more difficult modes and choices of gameplay. Even if I decided to choose to play against others online, which will allow more challengers of all types, not just the AI; computer from the game. It all requires a keen sense of understanding how to drive, making it the biggest part of the game.

Other than being stuck in for a while, the game isn’t too bad. There are some issues with the capability of reversing and only being blocked to go a certain way, even if you are trying to get back on track. Yet, there can even seem to be a few areas where cars path through you, possibly a slight error in the graphics. Nevertheless, it’s not a bad game, just need some more time spent playing and practicing before really moving forward to actual events and challenges or challengers.

Final Thoughts

Honestly, I think that even for a game so real, it is a bit difficult and not super easy for many. I won’t find it to be something I’d probably spend most of my time playing. Especially if I can just set up a quick race. It’s great to have so many options and features, but if you aren’t so familiar with the features and how to really move the vehicle it can just be confusing. As it takes time, and even after pausing for a bit, some more time is needed to understand the true concept of the game and not just what it’s all about, simply racing to win. Yet it’s the controls and the many features which are necessary to comprehend.

Leaving me to say that the game isn’t bad for all, as many may love to race and played plenty to love this just as much. On the other hand, it could just be a task that might not be something for an occasional player or amateur to pick up and play with ease. Don’t get me wrong, the realistic appearance is a pleasant surprise, but the difficulty out dues me at this time. Even if I find racing games to be fun in other games, it struck me to be a bit frustrating and tedious as well. Yet, for a more average racer will find it a bit easier and possibly enjoy as much as I have, the real appearance that is the surroundings, the car, and the sounds. That I can say is breathtaking like a real racing tournament, but better as you have the pleasure to take the seat as the driver and take the wheel into your own hands.

Some games radiate a certain kind of charm the instant you sit down to play them. It's a special moment, and one that doesn't...
