I would say i am a massive gamer, but i have never been into racing games as cars really don't interest me, i hold a licence to drive but i don't know a thing about them. But as i sat and played need for speed: Shift and realised what a awesome game it really is, i looked into buying a steering wheel. I did not want to spend mega bucks on a steering wheel becuase, 1, i cant afford it and 2, im not a massive driving game fan. I spent weeks looking at different wheels online and how people reviewed them, but all the wheels people were recommending were between £50 and £100, and i cant justify spending that amount of money.(plus the missus would kill me).

That is untill i found this; the Ferrari thrustmaster GT. I looked on some websites and couldn't find much info and not many reviews that were helpful to me. But i spotted this in a shop and thought, why not, ill give it a go. (i Paid £29 from Game-Sation)And i have to say im glad i did.

This wheel is of real high quality, i opened the box connected the wheel to my PS3 and stuck NFS:Shift on and it worked straight away no fiddiling with the button config or anything. It was litteraly pluged in and was ready to go.

The actual wheel is of high quality, it is made with a sturdy plastic, but has rubber handles where you hold the wheel. The actual wheel is a preety good size and ive haven't had a problem with it. The Wheel also has force feedback which brilliant. However the steering wheel only spins at 180 degrees both ways, this is not a bad thing but i understand more expensive wheels do a full 360. As the wheel does not come with a gear stick you have to use the 2 grey toggles on the wheel which are in a great place that you can quickly change gear in an instant.

This is my first wheel and for me it was excellent, feels great nice and heavy like a real sports car. Initially i found the controls typical of game controls, but once i learnt how to change the sensitivity it was ace!! I was up for hours trying to make it work with need for speed as the paddles didn't work, but after i read the manual PROPERLY and reassigned the keys, it was smashing!! Seriously recommended, almost feels like the real thing (and i'm a racing enthusiast)

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue PS3 configuration procedure for the Ferrari GT Experience racing wheel
By default in this game acceleration and braking are not assigned to the R1/L1 buttons {which is the case for the pedals and Up/Down levers on the Ferrari GT experience wheel
Procedure to configure and optimise the wheel
{this procedure only needs to be carried out once, as the changes will then be saved in the game.
1. Start up your game.
2. Go to the OPTION menu
3. Go to CONTROLLER SETUP menu
[by clicking the symbol represonting the gamepad and the D-pad]
4. Configure your controller as follows;
*ACCELERATE on R2
*BRAKE on L2
*SHIFT UP on R1
*SHIFT DOWN on L1
*REAR VIEW on L3 and/or R3
*LEFT AND RIGHT VIEW on D-PAD LEFT AND RIGHT
5. Click OK {in the lower right of your screen}
6. Return to the main menu to access the track of your choice

You should also be aware that this wheel comes with software drivers issued in 2006. When you buy the wheel download the software but DO NOT click on the DRIVERs tab. Make sure you have an internet connection and click on the UPDATES tab. The latest 2009 drivers will be installed into the software files. Alternatively if you have no connection at the time of installation then you can google and go to the Thrustmasters or Guilliemot sites and download the drivers from there.

The only major problem that this wheel has is that it is not Auto-Detected in the newer PC games. All the older games of the PS2/PC DVD era are and may even bring new life to them if you care to dig them out for a nostalgia blast.

After reading the reviews about this steering wheel on Amazon - I decided to buy the wheel for myself, so this is my review...

I bought this wheel to use on my PC; I prefer racing games so I wanted a decent wheel at a good price, so far this ticks all the boxes.
The software setup was straight forward, initially I used the wheel for Need for Speed Shift, I just selected the wheel in the default settings in the game and that was it.

The steering clamps firmly to my desk and doesn¡¦t move under constant use -

The feedback is very good from the wheel whilst driving. The vibration you receive through the wheel seems in sync ¡V The accelerator and brake are very responsive.

The shift gears on the steering wheel top of the driving experience.

Overall the build quality is very good; I would recommend this wheel to a friend

I download the new F1 2010 game a few days ago; at first the wheel didnt work...

I did some research and found out that you need to setup the wheel using the custom settings; this means that you can use all the buttons to create a perfect setup - i.e. request pit stop, change camera, look left, look right & change the car setup all from the wheel its much better than leaning over to a keyboard whilst driving.
You can even setup custom feedback options, this includes how heavy the wheel feels and the feedback you receive whilst racing.

I've had hours of fun racing online with this wheel, although I haven't won a race yet I can't blame the wheel for that :-)

The only issue that bugs me is when you turn the wheel to full lock it clicks ¡V But I can live with that.

Good work, Thrustmaster...
