PLAYER FOR THE GAME: Each Assetto Corsa title has its target audience, so which crowd do you belong to?

A straight gameplay upgrade, but is it for you?

Yes, Assetto Corsa Competizione looks better, sounds better, and plays better. But, as the name suggests, it's a competitive game. Also, ACC is a simulation specifically of GT World Challenge experiences.

If you're not a fan in particular of these series, then ACC might not outshine AC for you.

IT'S BIGGER, BUT IS IT BETTER: Assetto Corsa Competizione is an upgrade over its counterpart, but does mean it's a better game for all the players?

That's exactly why even though Competizione is an upgrade compared to its older counterpart, it might not be the one for you. If you're not a competitive player, and you're not a big fan of GT series cars, ACC might not be for you.

If you're looking for a more casual experience with different kinds of cars and series, the classic Assetto Corsa will fit your bill.
