Well, almost. Here's a few ups and downs for your consideration:
No button mapping/assignment. So if the games you play don't support wheels or allow you to re configure control settings this aint gonna work. Worst offenders are the Motor Storm games (steering works but no paddles and holding down the correct buttons is overtly cumbersome to say the least).
Doesn't work with PS2 games on a 60gb PS3. Yes, I know most people don't care. And if Crazy Taxi and Burnout 3 ever make it to the PSN I won't care either. But right now, I do. (edit: Crazy Taxi has been released on the PSN since I wrote this and guess what - NO driving wheel compatibility. The shame of it!)
Force Feedback is rubbish on anything but GT5 Prologue. Seriously rubbish. You can still hear the motors spinning very loudly when you make sharp turns even if you turn the vibration modes off in game.Read more ›
The Force Feedback is quite strong too and the wheel as a whole is very responsive, giving you a visceral driving experience. It also works with the Playstation 2 games both Backwards compatible on PS3 and the actual PS2 system itself. Plus not many wires just one for power so its easy to store when not being used.
I would have preffered a full kit with pedals but my space issues put paid to that, so this is a fantastic alternative. All in all a fantastic wheel highly recommended!
Now, my main query had not been answered in any other reviews so in case anyone else is thinking of it; It is unpractical to try and change the button configuration so that the L1/R1 are brake/accelerate as they are not pressure sensitive. Thus the paddles cannot be used for gear change. The buttons were however fully customisable in-game so if you think any other setup will suit you, knock yourself out!
Other than this there are only minor problems for me with the wheel. Those being its weight and feel. Having played on the driving force GT I can say outright there is a definite difference in quality of feel. Also, it took me quite some time to get the setup right so that the *extremely* light steering wheel wasn't sliding about everywhere.
But, these points aside, the wheel genuinely has been one of my best investments in my gaming experience. Wheel driving cannot be compared to controller driving, it is quite simply in its own league. The 200 degree rotation of the wheel I must add is also far more realistic for the F1 game I play predominantly so I'm happy with that.
Overall, I needed a steering wheel that didnt use pedals, and was affordable. I would probably have paid a bit more than £40 for one with a bit more of a real wheel feel to it, but this wheel definitely does the job as best it could!

Simply useless. The moment I switched it on it decided that the centre point was amount 5 centimetres to the right, and the wheel settings were horrendous, it just would not behave... Read morePublished 1 day ago by Rob K.
