Asetto Corsa is a sim racing video game realised in 2014. Developed by the Italian video game developer ‘Kunos Simulazioni’. It is designed with an emphasis on a realistic racing experience with support for extensive customisation and modability. Unlike the offerings from Forza or Need for Speed which lean towards more arcade-like experience.
When playing most racing sims, you’ll most likely have a wheel and pedal setup to give you the best experience possible. Now, to the cars, Asetto Corsa comes with 100 cars in the base and 170 in the top end game with uber detail from manufacture’s colours and wheel options.
The game has 19 tracks with over 40 configurations — each laser scanned ensuring they are as accurate as possible to their real live counter part. Along with this, Asetto Corsa offers a multitude of game modes including free practice, time trials, drifting and even full race weekends with multiple sessions, however, that isn’t all the game has to offer.
Asetto Corsa has had an active modding community since its release date eight years ago. Which still provides the players with new content on a regular basis. There are thousands of websites full of them. A mod that I particularly enjoy is a replica of the 2021 F1 car showcasing the liveries of the entire field along with realistic car sounds as well.
With these mods you can paint your favourite car, download your personal or favourite car, or download a track used in your favourite motor sport. You can even enhance your graphics if you want a more cinematic experience.
In conclusion, Asetto Corsa is a must add to your game collection if you want the most realistic sim racing experience possible and I cannot recommend it more.
