If this is classed simcade then I am a simcader. Absolutely loving it so far. Looks amazing, cars are indeed a bit grippy but certainly not in a wrong way. Although a few cars feel very disconnected while others feel spot on.

With the awesome reworked music of GTR2 (where is the Dr Stephen Baysted fanpage damnit :)) I am truly having the impression that I am playing GTR3.

First 45 minutes spend in game and many many more to come that's for sure. Big :thumbsup:'s up from me.

I have to say i am really disapointed so far... Compared to AC it s soooo easy to drive... But maybe I have to change some settings... A Lot of FFB clipping so far... I was expecting more!!!! But no judgement After one hour...

I suspect it might come in the form of DLC.
Didn't Shift 2 Unleashed have Ena Pergusa and the old Hockenheim?

Strange as I find Assetto too easy to drive. Title seems to be faring well though. 84 rating on Metacrtic and #2 on Steam top-sellers list. So far so good.

Could it be that you are too used to the unrealistic lack of grip found in gmotor titles?
