There’re a lot of racing games which pretend to be serious simulators of on-track experience. Assetto Corsa and Project Cars have ambitious plans and promise a lot. Waiting for Project Cars 2 release date, let’s see which game is better, at least for now.
Assetto Corsa Handling vs Project Cars
Well, Asetto Corsa was made by the team responsible for professional Ferrari simulators. The game feels like Gran Turismo seriously improved. The physics is very realistic and detailed. The steering wheel provides a lot of information so you can literally feel your car. You can drive using standard ABS and TC settings. The game takes into account weather conditions and tires temperature. Perhaps physical damage isn’t that visible here but this aspect isn’t that important for a simulator like this.
Project Cars is all different. It offers pretty looking cars and detailed environment but they don’t care about physics at all. Project Cars feels like a game from 2000s because you can’t feel the character of your car or the track you are on. The physics isn’t realistic and driving is quite boring here.
Can we compare Project Cars vs Assetto Corsa PS4 version? Hardly, they both have those features which we’ve described above. The same can be said about Project Cars vs Assetto Corsa Xbox One competition.
Project Cars vs Assetto Corsa Car List
Project Cars game boasts about the following vehicles:
Assetto Corsa multiplayer is often blamed for having a lot of bugs which are never fixed. For example, players can’t access servers with DLC cars. Many users also complain that servers slots are limited by car selection. In addition, every single car needs to be loaded and you can’t change cars during sessions either. Another problem is that server browser needs to be re-hauled.
On the contrary, Project Cars offer a nice multiplayer without any serious complaints. However, it lacks such features as host being able to kick players, chat system and nice online player rating.
HTC Vive Support
Project Cars game is finally available with the support of HTC Vive. There’re a lot of enthusiastic reviews saying that it gives a realistic feeling. In fact, the physics stays exactly the same and driving is still boring. Graphics is also not that good in this version. Many users say that it doesn’t run properly.
As for Assetto Corsa, it doesn’t have official support of HTC Vive but there’s an update which makes it possible. You need to spend some time to install it. When playing the game with HTC Vive you have an unnatural feeling which changes your driving experience.
