Price (as of Jan 2018):
Project Cars gets compared a lot to Assetto Corsa. Lots of arguments about which is better. Both are very similar in terms of graphics but the physics model for Asetto Corsa seems to have the slight edge.
Definitely one of the top 3 graphics of all racing simulators. The cars and tracks look stunning. No slowdown or lock ups at high quality settings. The lighting, textures and colours look realistic and we cannot fault them. For evidence of this check out our videos below.
Again easy answer to this is that the sounds you would expect from a racing car are there, engines sounds good, road surface noise authentic too.
Menus and Options
Nice menu options and easy to use, however not all of it is on screen and you have to slide left to view more options. Setting up the simulator is straight forward and access to controller setups, display and sound settings were easy to find and setup.
Project Cars includes the usual single player and multiplayer option. What stands out to us about Project Cars over Assetto Corsa is it saves your fastest lap times on a leader board so you can compare yourself to other racers. There are various modes and tournaments you can play to keep you interested, The racing is good, the AI can be adjusted and is not dumb. Its a solid racing simulator. Online we did try but found it very quiet and not as busy as Assetto Corsa.
Force Feedback and TRACKIR Supported.
A solid racing sim, Project Cars 2 is out now, we haven't been able to test Project Cars 2 yet so cannot comment on this. We have tried to contact the publishers to get a copy to review but had no response as yet. So we can only comment on Project Cars 1 for the time being. Plenty of options to keep you interested in single player mode and the multiplayer mode is always available should you get tired of the single player
