    Project Cars - Assetto Corsa comparison.

    Why do I find PCars more difficult to drive? Both are great games, but I struggle more with PCars. Assetto is supposedly the ultimate driving simulator, but PCars is more difficult in my opinion.

    Well it would help to know which part you find particularly difficult. Difficulty in detecting over/understeer, in finding proper brake lockup points, difficulties in setting up online races? There are many facets to games such as these; if you're a little more specific, I know someone can help you leverage pCars strengths according to your needs.

    Well Gran Turismo is the Real driving simulator...

    On a more serious note: could be ffb related.

    It's easier to drive for me as well. I feel like the feedback through the wheel is more intuitive to me or something and it's nice not having to go and input a dozen or so FFB settings just to drive a different car each time. I can correct mistakes a lot better where as with PCARS if I miss a braking point or an apex it's really punishing.

    If the level of immersion and game play in AC was half as good as PCARS it'd be the perfect sim, but even as good as it is for driving there is only so much to do before you get kind of bored. I can't even track my own lap times to compare them to myself outside of a session let alone leaderboards with other people's times. With AC it's fun, but after a few races in PCARS I'm sweating and my heart is beating through my chest.

    Project Cars & Gran Turismo are my favorite.
    As for Assetto Corsa, well lets say its about to be traded in or use the disc as a cold glass coaster.

    It's the lack of weather that really turns me off AC.

    I lose the back end of so many cars, even the not so powerful ones, the Ford Escort for example. I owned one of these, and I did lose the back end once on a public road, but I held it.

    But how fast were you driving in real life vs in the game? Not saying that the game is perfect, but we tend to drive much faster in games due to the lack of sense of speed.

    And the fact we can reset on track instead of dying...

    Are you playing with a gamepad ? pcars default gamepad setting are quite sensible (or should I say simply "badly calibrated"). Most players who enjoy the game with a gamepad had to change the settings in order to find the feeling they are happy with.
