As a long-time fan of sim racing, I've always been fascinated by all the different racing games. From the arcade-style thrills of Mario Kart to the hyper-realistic simulations of Project Cars, these games have provided me with endless hours of entertainment. And among the most popular racing sims of all time, Assetto Corsa stands out as a true gem.
Released in 2014, Assetto Corsa quickly gained a reputation for its stunning visuals, realistic physics, and vast array of car and track options. It quickly became the go-to sim for hardcore sim racers, and its popularity has endured over the years. But is Assetto Corsa still a good choice in 2024?
Despite its age, Assetto Corsa still holds up remarkably well in many respects. The graphics are still impressive, with detailed cars, tracks, and environments that look stunning even on modern hardware. The physics are also top-notch, providing a realistic and challenging driving experience that can be tailored to your skill level. And the game's vast selection of cars and tracks means there's something for everyone, from Formula One to rally cars and everything in between.
Of course, no game is perfect, and Assetto Corsa has its share of flaws. The career mode is rather shallow, and the AI can be frustratingly unpredictable at times. Additionally, the game's interface can be a bit clunky, and the lack of a proper multiplayer mode is a significant drawback. Especially the ineffective safety rating, preventing reckless driving by matching players with similar driving styles, has received a fair bit of criticism.
So, is Assetto Corsa still worth buying in 2024? The answer is a resounding yes – for the right person. If you're a hardcore sim racer who's looking for a realistic and challenging driving experience, then Assetto Corsa is still an excellent choice. The game's strengths far outweigh its weaknesses, and it's sure to provide you with countless hours of enjoyment.
