"A must have for driving simulation"4.5 starson by Artur.AN
Pros: Feeling, construction
Cons: Pedals are not "pressurized" as they should be.
Summary: Being a GT player since first edition,used to drive with the Sony's Dual Shock Controller,being used to win every single race and championship on all GT's games, I decided to "upgrade" my simulation driving experience for GT4 and bought the Driving Force Pro Wheel. Well, it s not an easy task to adapt my self to the newcomer, after years and years of DualShock Controller driving. After a few laps with some of mt cars and on some tracks, I am still discovering and adapting myself to the wheel.Road feeling is excellent,one must be very careful with the chosen trajectories and very decisive on making turns. The pedals are ok although the brake pedal should have a more "pressurized feeeling" as it's very difficult to "feel" the braking power of the car.However this has to do also with the getting used to it. I use the wheel buttons to change gears,but sometimes its nice to change them on the gear stick which is a bit misplaced for that, as I would prefer to have it closer to the wheel, in order to change them without the need of having to move the hand away from the wheel. The "force" of the wheel is sometimes "too much", but also very useful in some situations. One thing is for sure using the Driving Force Pro: driving its much more sensitive, much more subtle and efficient. And the pleasure it gives, lap after lap has nothing to do with the standard controller. A must have for GT maniacs like myself.Updated
After a complete night adapting myself to this wheel, I can say that things are getting better and better.A noticed however a few things: gear lever is not as misplaced as I mentioned before.Also, the better the car and the better it is tuned, the wheel behaves really nice, I can have full control of the car,naturally.Also I agree with other user opinion, when he says that the wheel should return to its "straight" position by itself, as this is the natural behavior on a real car. This is a glitch that it is important specially on rallyes.Again,maybe getting used to it can make things even better.All in all and again, a must have for the serious maniac...like myself.
