Pros force feedback
wireless* (see cons)
can be used for racing games that don't support the wheel* (see summary)
Cons NOT REALLY WIRELESS, the "wireless world" video is a lie. There needs to be a cable connecting the pedals to the wheel. Plus a power cord if you want force feedback.
big and heavy
Summary This wheel is a must for anyone who plays alot of racing games. The force feedback is really good, and when I am playing PGR4 and the car starts to swerve left and right, it's like the wheel steers itself! That really helps you regain control.
Now here's the big lie when they say it's wireless... It really isnt. You NEED a cord connecting the pedals to the wheel. Then if you want the force feedback or rumble, you need the power adapter plugged in as well. If you've eve seen the "wireless world" video from Microsoft, then you've seen how they show the guy playing a game with no wires connecting the pedals. You can't play it like that! Now the wheel can be powered by a regular controller battery pack with 2 AA batteries... But I've never done it because I want the force feedback and the rumble.
This wheel Can be used with games like FUEL, because the pedals act as the triggers and the wheel acts as the left analog stick in a linear left and right. Now its much harder since you have to really turn the wheel alot but you eventually get used to it. But I have found that this makes it harder at times.
One quick thing is that you lose the use of some buttons like the analog clicks and the right stick.
But all in all I highly reccommend this to anyone who likes to play racing games.
Pros This product was exactly what it said it was, allowed a somewhat more realistic driving expierence with the force feedback
Cons Can be annoying to hold this thing all the time, but thats with all driving simulator wheels
Summary Great product, I am enjoying this line of steering wheel. The Force feedback works well, and truly has been a great expierence. I would reccomend it to any fanatic gamer of driving games, I warn anyone who buys it that it takes a little bit to get used to if you have been using a controler for the game, dynamics do change and you just have to adjust to them
Pros Seems well made
Cons Does not currently work with PCs. Not really wireless.
Summary I used the wheel very briefly once I found I was a better game driver with the standard controller. None the less, I thought the wheel was well made and met my expectations for a more realistic mode of playing driving games.
A couple of odd things though. First, its not really wireless since it needs an AC outlet to power the force feedback. Second, it still requires 2 AA batteries even though its plugged into the wall. Strikes me as stupid but then again I don't use it too often. Maybe there's a legit reason.
The real frustration for me is that it does not connect to the Xbox 360 PC wireless receiver to play PC games. The controllers work great with this peripheral which really extends their value quite a bit in m opinion. Unfortunately it just doesn't play with the PCs, nearly a year after its release. Is Microsoft being lazy or it this just too complicated for a multi-billion programming company? Obviously I think they've done too little to support the product.
