I can truly say this is the
best force feedback wheel I have tested to date.
The two included Microsoft games were very realistic,
and the wheel kicked serious ass on them. The one
game that really made up my mind was Need For Speed
III. You rev up your engine, you feel it; you burn
out, you feel it; you drive over wood, you feel
it... wow! No more of that "wheel turns left
really hard, wheel turns right really hard"
stuff, this is pure gold!
The only flaw
I found was the pedals. It makes sense that Microsoft
would pair up a really great wheel with cheesy pedals
due to manufacturing costs, but this is overboard.
The pedals are half of the product, and this just
doesn't cut it. First of all, they're way to too
close together. I like being able to use both feet
for two pedals (for racing games) because the action
is so fast, but this makes it nearly impossible.
They also have very little resistance, so it's hard
to only depress them slightly (you know... in case
the cops drive by). At least they didn't slip around
too much on my carpet.
