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.Read more ›
The design meeting must have gone something like this. "So lads, we've made a quality feeling device. Well balanced, better longer triggers than on the controller, and more precise in the turns, but there's a problem. Somethings gotta go. It's either the fundamentally important L/R shoulder buttons or the silly, pointless green lights on the top. So we're all agreed then, out with the shoulder buttons. Oh, and no one really needs a mic do they so let's cut that too"!!!!
Seriously though, once you set it up right in the menus and get used to it, this thing really is quite good. I bought it primarly for use with F1 2011 and Forza 4. Despite what you might have read, it is actually possible to configure the wheel satisfactorily without the LR shoulder buttons for the driving element, even with manual gears, DRS, KERS, etc. The problem comes when you're not driving. Want to fast forward time while in the garage on F1? Forget it. Want to tune your car set up in Forza? Can't be done without the shoulder buttons. Totally unforgivable, especially for Forza as it's made by a Microsoft first party studio! The only way round this is to turn off the wheel and turn on a controller, then switch back when it's time to drive. This gets old fast!
Another issue is that the rumble/vibration seems to be much weaker than on a pad, even with it set to max in the options.Read more ›
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.
