Being a thoroughbred simulation, Project CARS is a demanding driving game for PS4 players more accustomed to DriveClub, so newcomers would do well to apply the assists. But it's not quite as simple as that: Project CARS' customisation is crazily comprehensive.
There's the usual array of options for wheel users to adjust the force feedback sensitivity among other options, but Slightly Mad Studios realise that not everyone who plays Project CARS have access to expensive racing peripherals cluttering their living room. As a result, the wide range of controller and gameplay options you can apply to suit your playing style is almost overwhelming.
As you would expect, full controller button mapping options come as standard, but Project CARS lets you delve much deeper, allowing you to adjust the sensitivity of just about everything, from throttle and clutch deadzones to steering stick sensitivity.
To make things easier, three preset modes are available that automatically adjust the settings to suit different player skill levels, which Alan explores in this video.
Our advice: sticking between controller mode two and three produced the best results, but it's worth experimenting with the different options to suit your playing style.
