Assetto Corsa supports gaming wheels and 900 degree rotation while using them. What is even more enjoyable is that the cockpit view animates 1:1 with the rotations of the players gaming wheel while used.
The music in the game is basically techno with thumping beats. The majority sounds pretty similar and it may become grating for those that spend a ton of time in the game. While not overly bad, it definitely gets old after a while.
This means that online games will be dependent on the developers servers. There will be no way for users to create their own servers that can house their own rules or tracks. Earlier releases allowed for this and it does seem that the console release has held the game back in this regard as dedica...
iRacing is a cross platform online only subscription based simulation racer. Gameplay is open-ended where players can choose to play whatever races they want either by themselves for practice or online against live opponents.
The controls for the game are very precise and in being so is best played with a driving wheel with petals and a shifter. Trying to play with a gamepad does work but will really inhibit the players controls especially if they are competing in online races.
There is an actual sanctioning body for the game called FIRST that keeps players in line making for a non toxic community that behaves professionally. If a player races aggressively or continually breaks the rules of the rod their license will receive infractions that will soon label that person as

The developer Codemasters has created many rally racing games but are striving to make this the most simulation based title out of all of their releases. This is very welcome as there have not been many Rally simulation games released in the past from Codemasters or any other developers.
Users are unable to control the menu in Occulus as the menus do not show, some workarounds are to close one eye to see if you can see a menu or use a tool to broadcast the Occulus image to ones monitor. Either way this can be a frustrating experience and needs to be worked out.
There is no cockpit camera view in the game, the only camera view is this odd over the shoulder camera that can make it tough to see what one is doing while driving. It does help when trying to hook up to and pull another truck out of the mud, but an additional camera view would be helpful for dri...
It's possible to thoroughly damage and destroy each vehicle in the game. And the game highly encourages such behaviour with one of the more commonly achieved winning conditions being to destroy the competition.
