Most of complants im hearing about the game, to me dont exists.
First of all, remember this is simulator. Its not meant to be easy, the handling on most cars need tunning to get them to run right. I must addmit that the Clio handling doesnt feel right, but other then that, im fine with how the cars feel. Remember, accelerating hard out of a bend will send the car in a straight line, you need to be very light with the input your putting in with a controller.
I hear that some are getting graphic glich at the top of the screen when in cockpit veiw, this is just shadows off trees and other over head objects.

Im not saying that the game doesnt need an update, just that its a sim and not Forza.

A couple of things that do need sorting out is....
1. Frame rate
2. Sound lagg and sound cutting out. (Found putting "force feed back" setting to "0" stops it from cutting out)
3. Cars stacking on top one another on starting gid in single player.
4. Unable to save custom layout and sometimes, starting a race with no hud.
5. Lagg when players join online sessions
6. Bomming to Dashboard

Couple of things i would like to see added to the game.
1. Info Hud for damage.
2. Kicked players, staying kicked.
3. Custom paints
4. In game setting to adjust/edit camera view.

Other then the above problems, this is easly the best racing game ive played and seen, well done on making a truly amazing game.

Totally agree with what you are saying.
It shouldn't be easy to drive all these different cars!
Im not the greatest driver but im loving the challenge this game is giving me.
Yes there is a list of problems like you say that they still have to fix but they are working on it.
Im finding the carreer mode a lot more fun an challenging than what forza was.
Its already an amazing game and it will only get better.

I totally agree I love being challenged in this game although the escort 1600 is impossible to drive at the moment but like you said the devs are working hard at it and the positives out weight the negs. Forza was a fun game but not a pure racing game I.e needing a massive rear wing on a caterham doesn't feel right to me lol. The amount of tracks and cars that you can drive are amazing I'm loving willow springs. Things can only get better the key is to never give up and get forza out of your heads I even traded my forza in for this lol

For me the issue regarding the way cars handle is the difference between good and bad. For example take the RUF GT3, you can thrapes it from the get go. Even with cold tyres you struggle to get out of shape. Comparitively lets take the LOTUS RENAULT F1, You can have tyres upto temp be flat out on a straight where aero should be working to keep you planted and BAM! your suddenly dragged off track for no reason. That should not happen unless youv'e had a blowout or some other major mechanical failure and it sure as shizzle shouldn't happen lap after lap. Im not a computer programmer but could it be that the physics/handling model for some cars is simply broken? I dunno but i hope they sort it sharpish coz its getting on my threpenny bits.

That's all well and good. But this is the Xbox One section and it has been pointed out time and again that the cars aren't difficult to handle because it's a sim - but because there is a bug where the controller doesn't use the full range of movement for steering on the analog stick. I;ve driven lots of cars because of my job and none of them are this hard to drive.Once the controller works ok, then this game will come alive I'm sure. But until then, saying it is a sim to explain away the difficulty is a bit naive.

A couple of things that do need sorting out is....

1. Frame rate - Fix / work around is to place game onto a USB hard disk.

2. Sound lagg and sound cutting out. (Found putting "force feed back" setting to "0" stops it from cutting out) - Reduced massively if you cable your controller to the Xbox, fix incoming in next patch.

3. Cars stacking on top one another on starting gid in single player. - Not seen this at all, but then I have my game on external hard disk.

4. Unable to save custom layout and sometimes, starting a race with no hud. - Agree, need ability to change this in the HUD menu outside of races.

5. Lagg when players join online sessions - Not seen this personally.

6. Bomming to Dashboard - Not seen this, again think that's the USB hard disk installation.

Couple of things i would like to see added to the game.

1. Info Hud for damage. - Yes and a better tire wear indicator. I know it's available but I've had to remap the hud cycle button to something else on my wheel.

2. Kicked players, staying kicked. - Would make sense

3. Custom paints - Not going to happen.

4. In game setting to adjust/edit camera view. - Agreed. Would be nice to be able to change, however not enough buttons on the controller or wheel to map this (As it can be done by moving seat).

I agree with you. I dont think the problem is as much to do with the controller, but with some of the cars.
