If you have a PC that's good enough to run ACC at 120fps, then fair enough, you can stay away from the console version. I would do the same...
In my personal experience on base PS4 though, I have only played it on a 40'' TV and a 27'' monitor and I can read everything clearly without any effort. Frame rate is low but quite stable, although I have seen videos from friends who have had stutters and very bad dips which would make it even nauseous to drive. I haven't experienced anything like that myself however, not sure why. And yeah, the fact that you need to change the degree of rotation manually is a small hassle, but not a serious one for me, I don't change car too often (and it does save correctly).
To be fair, yes, if the game runs and it’s good enough to not get stutters and lost frames etc, the driving in gt cars is better than gts, the ffb too. Plus, the crash physics and ratings and as I said before the progression and ratings give you that sense of progress.
However even given all those things, given if you can handle the graphics, there were not many players online, and the competition server races looked to be like 45 minutes long plus a long qualifying.
If I were them I would make races 15-20 minutes long in a daily race format like gts but even then, a game needs players.
It’s never going to have playerbase anywhere near not even same universe as GTS.
I would say to people who enjoy purely the experience of simulated driving, and racing vs quality AI pc is far superior for that compared to console excepting Dirt Rally 2 on console.
To me that has a fabulous fabulous driving. If you are a person that values what I listed above imo you owe it to yourself to get DIRT RALLY 2.
It’s absolutely fabulous. It runs smooooooth
The experience of cars mass and slide and the EPIC sound quality and graphics. THAT is the best console pure drive experience imo.
The car sounds the engine notes are RAUCOUS EPIC GREST GREAT and blow everything else away.
But like I said if a person can get ACC on console to run smooth than ok.
Maybe it’s not unplayable. The video above looks fine, but that’s not what I see when I try it on console.
The wheel rotations being jacked up is just awful
Plus to make matters worse many of the listed rotations settings for console online are incorrect
this is made obvious on pc where things work correctly.
On pc it’s great very plug and play with perfect wheel pedal response even steering wheel controls etc.
Thing is IF you get pc you can also drive things like rfactor2....
Also on console project cars 2 has some really cool content, runs ok, has glitches, ffb is kinda iffy but there’s a ton more content I’d prefer it to ACC or AC console any day as well.
It has fantastic kart circuits, try the Penske Camaro at Big Willow..,
Some of it has an excellent raw look to it not perfectly clean like in GTS.
There’s a TON of content, but some of its quality is bad. Even though it feels funky in the ffb I think it’s better than ACC overall, even if ACC drives better and the ffb makes sense.
