I enjoyed every word of your fantastic article. What a pleasure to read it.
There is a constant force feedback function for Forza 4, unfortunately there is a glitch in the game that doesn't trigger it, and you have to reset the controller everytime you play. Not sure if they've fixed it yet though.
responsiveness : fair to poor.recomendations : Forza 4.Not recomended for Formula1 2011 if you want to use other functions ie: CURS.although this wheel is responsive, it is not as responsive as it should be.I have had a better experience from other wireless controllers, with more response, but with the downfall of a wheel stuck to a desktop or table.
Rating: fair to poor (based on usability with other racing games) Responsivness: poorout of a rating of 10 my rating is 6
I hate conventional racing wheels, as a driver I feel that these never accurately mimic driving as I would a car and usually take a lot of getting used to, I feel like I'm driving the wheel instead of driving the vehicle ingame.
Picking up the wireless wheel was a dream come true, I wasn't stuck with the problem of having to create some sort of cockpit to strap it to, it behaves like a normal steering wheel of a car with power steering whilst driving (perhaps not the case for maneuvers), it was responsive (in Forza Horizon anyway) and it can be set down on my desk after use!
The only drawback I saw is that previously mentioned in the article; It won't accomodate my wired headphones and it doesn't have any shoulder buttons. These are only minor drawbacks though. People who wan't force feedback are the people with illusions of a virtual reality experience, this isn't the case with our current gen of consoles and in fact force feedback is often detrimental to this experience, I was glad that the wireless wheel didn't include that "feature". 9/10
