5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. But not a wheel! 28 Nov 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought one of these a few weeks ago and I think it's excellent! To me it bridges a gap between the standard xbox 'bat' and a full on wheel. It's never going to replace a wheel but after playing for a few weeks with it, I now find using the standard controller rather frustrating. I'm using it with Forza 3, Dirt 3 and Dirt 2, along with various other driving games. Soon to be Forza 4 as well. In the case of Forza 3 & Dirt 2, I basically replayed them using the wheel and yes, the lack of shoulder buttons can be a pain but for actual racing it's tremendous and I've had immense fun playing these again with the wheel. Rallying is just fantastic with it...

It's a good weight & balance. These people who're moaning about aching arms need to lift some weights and man up! Considering it's costs a few quid more than a new controller, the price is spot on... I must say it took a couple of evenings and a bit of cussing & swearing to get 'my eye in' but after that it's a pleasure to use.

Even with the lack of shoulder buttons, I'm giving it 5 stars. Purely because it's a load of FUN!!!

Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Makes Forza 4 play like Mario Kart 15 Oct 2011
By SoftDog TOP 1000 REVIEWER

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My Xbox Force Feedback wheel is a big bulky old thing and lives in a cupboard meaning it doesn't get as much use as it deserves. The wife thinks it clutters up the room. So I was pretty excited when I saw this small wireless wheel come out.

When it arrives it feels high quality. It is made of glossy black finger print magnet plastic with matt plastic hand grips. The D pad is on the left side of the wheel and the A B X Y buttons on the other. The 2 triggers are on the back of the wheel. The Back, the Xbox button and Start button are on the centre dial. As many people have pointed out, no LB and RB. And no headphone socket so you can't speak to people on multi-player. The wheel looks good and the ends light up green when it is on. It is a little small in the hands and quite light but feels well made.

I bought the wheel on offer with Forza 4 and was very excited to try it. But nearly immediately I felt let down. Before racing I decided to put my custom decals on the car but couldn't as the selection of options on the painting mode require selection by the LB and RB. Which the wheel doesn't have. You have to turn off, use the Xbox controller to do the customisation and then restart with the wheel on to drive. This is a significant let down.

But you buy this for the racing. And here it feels disappointing. It's responsive enough and the triggers are well placed and well balanced. But waving the wheel around in the air quickly becomes tiring. After a few races you end up with your elbows on your knees. When you bump into people you get a rumble but of course there's no force feedback that you get on the bigger wheels. The wireless wheel feels detached from the game.

As much as people seem to be complaining about the lack of bumpers, I haven't encountered a scenario where things couldn't be remapped in an intuitive way. In terms of responsiveness, it is far more responsive than I was expecting. It is also perfectly weighted which keeps the wheel nicely balanced in the hands. I've considered buying more expensive wheels and although this will never compare to those, it is a great way to add a bit more control and have a bit more fun with racing games for a completely reasonable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't disregard it just because... 28 Jan 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, it doesn't have LB and RB buttons.
I was given this as a present and was ready to take it back and exchange it for something else but I thought I'd buy a couple of cheap driving games to give it a fair chance.
I tried it with F1 2010, Forza 3 and Dirt 2.
The wheel really enhances the gameplay and adds a new challenge to the races, especially when combined with the in-car view.
The driver on screen was matching my steering in all 3 of these games, in terms of how much I turned the wheel and how fast.
It's easy to correct a bit of oversteer using a flick of the joystick, but when you're using the wheel you'll find yourself leaning, twisting and throwing yourself around in order to stop yourself going backwards into the sand trap or flipping helplessly off a cliff.
In all of these games there's a need at some points for the bumper buttons, but you can change the button configuration on most games. On Dirt 2 for example, I didn't need the button for the horn during races so I reconfigured the B button to change views. There are ways of getting around it.
Don't expect it to work amazingly on games such as Driver SF or GTA because it just won't. It's a steering wheel...for driving games!
Only other thing was I found the battery cover difficult to remove and there weren't any instructions on how to do so.
Minor issues I suppose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - but needs a bit of getting used to 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this to use with Forza 4 because I found the standard controller joystick difficult to use for fine steering control, and I wanted something that wouldn't take ages to set up or take up lots of space when not being used like a normal steering wheel with pedals etc.

I have never used a steering wheel / pedals on a video game so can only compare the use to a standard controller. Using this wireless speed wheel has totally transformed the way I play Forza. The control is much finer and I am now balancing steering and throttle on corners, can feel and manage under and over steer more easily and the whole thing feels much more realistic than with a standard controller. It really is almost a different game with this controller.

However, when I first used it I was on verge of sending it back because the cars were almost uncontrollable - suddenly spinning out on long corners, felt like deadspots in the steering movement and generally all over the place. It took an evening of hot laps to get the hang of it so be prepared - it takes some getting used to but is a much better experience than a standard controller.

The construction is fine - not quite as robust as the standard controller but not bad. I didn't have any problems with tired arms as reported in some other reviews but I don't tend to play more than 60-90 mins at a time. The lack of RB/RL buttons is a shame as there is plenty of space to have put them, but at least on Forza it is not too inconvenient. It means you can't change camera view without going to the menu but I don't tend to do that much anyway.

One nice touch is that the green rings on the two ends of the controller light up - the left hand one flashes when there is a gear change.

Overall I would definitely recommend this but be prepared to persevere with it as it takes a bit of practice to get the hang of it.
