For those of us who are attracted by products from the "meatier" end of the PC racing game spectrum (and my personal favourite, Grand Prix Legends (GPL), is certainly no arcade thrash), attempting to compete effectively by means of the keyboard is unthinkable. Joypads, if anything, are worse, and although a decent analogue joystick can bring some considerable success in the hands of a skilled driver, the most satisfactory solution by far is to invest in a good quality steering wheel. And I do mean "invest". Although there are one or two reasonably good wheels available for around the £50 mark (Microsoft's own Precision Wheel, for ... Read the complete review

This is one of the greatest things I've bought for my PC. After playing with this wheel I don't know how I could have played with a keyboard. It's like no other wheel I have ever used before. I wish I could use this bad boy in my car. There are so many aspects about this wheel that turns me on. The force feedback is great, although not as powerful, but pretty close, as an arcade wheel, but what do you expect when its right in your own home.

With this force feedback version you're getting everything that was good about the previous version with added rumble! This wheel still has 8 buttons, excellent pedals, an innovative desk clamping system and wheel performance to die for. The force feedback? Oooh...you will not be disappointed. You can modify the forces within the excellent (as usual) sidewinder software. ... Read the complete review

Fed up with spinning off the track because you had to use your digital controller only allowing you full lock left or straight on. This is not driving but surely a punishment for buying a driving simulator and playing it with a keyboard. The answer you need a steering wheel. The next question? Which one do I buy? Having owned a the Microsoft Force Feedback Wheel for almost a year now and experiencing no problems in reliability and an immeasurable increase in the gameplay and enjoyment from any racing simulator I have played on my PC I would urge to buy this one. The features of this steering wheel are: -Analogue accelerator and ... Read the complete review
