5 You get what you pay for!YorkshireTyke | 29/05/2007 | See all YorkshireTyke's reviews (2)Top 100 Games Reviewer I know this is about £40 more expensive than the Madcatz steering wheel but it's true what they say: "You get what you pay for" The force feedback is great with the Microsoft Steering Wheel. Most other steering wheels only have vibration feedback, which is just not worth it! I had the Madcatz wheel and found it feel "slack". No feeling when turning the wheel and once you started to steer you never knew where straight was again!! But it's easier to find straight again with the Microsoft wheel. The pedals have a larger zone of activity. What I mean by that is the Madcatz you had to push the pedal all the way down and the last 10mm (out of 100mm) was from minimum to maximum acceleration. So hard to slowly put the power down and not spin the wheels. With the Microsoft one you have a larger zone from minimum to maximum acceleration, therefore easier to stop any wheel spins. The force feedback adds to the realism and makes controlling the car much easier. Only tried it on PGR but waiting for Forza2 which has been designed with this wheel in mind.The only bad points: The Microsoft wheel may be missing the gear stick but why do you need it if you have the gear paddles on the wheel. The Microsoft wheel has a large steering lock (270 deg - I think) which some people may think is too much in certain situations, but you can get use to it! Also if sitting the wheel on your lap it can slip off your legs if you get too aggressive with your driving. Sadly missing the great idea from Madcatz of the extra bit to grip against your legs.Last point of note: Expect your driving to get worse before it gets better!
