MadCatz Xbox 360 Steering Wheel
Forget all the positive reviews, it's garbage
After trying to configure the wheel it was very clear it was not very good. For any competitive game it is worse then a controller. lack of rotation and force feedback lead to a recipe for disaster. either you're understeering like mad or are oversteering without notice. for the money you will spend, pay a little more for a lot better.
great work everyone.. this is the only place i will ever go to for games, my son has gotton tons of games from here and won't go any where else
I bought my Xbox wheel for $100. I love it and it lasted a long time. If finally broke and my local gaming store had one of these so I tried it. It is terrible. The wheel angle is all wrong as if I'm driving a bus or something. It doesn't lay in your lap nicely like the xbox version the steering feedback is non existent. It is a cheap child's toy not for the serious racing gamer. Get the real Microsoft wheel if you can...immensely better quality at the same price point.
Cool, if you like finishing last.
I read some reviews and asked people, they said not to buy it, I didn't listen to them and got one. I used this for Forza 4, the slightest movement in the wheel can send you veering off course, the steering wheel is extremely small, I kept accidentally hitting the X button over and over when turning, the paddle shifters are extremely small and plastic, and the gear lever is a cool add on, but I think pushing it forward to shift up isn't as nice as pulling back to shift up. The way it sits on your lap with the holders is nice so it won't fly around, the suction cups are horrible, the peddles are badly designed where the brake and gas is, you always just slam on the brake without warning. I'm a good Forza player, but I couldn't win one race even with the best cars, all I did was slide out with this steering wheel. MadCatz is a company that's motto should be "You get what you pay for".
Great for the price
This is a cool accessory to have. I didn't have the squeaky problem like some of the other people here. Again for the price it is great. Obviously its not as good as the $400-$700 range wheels, but it provides a better feel than a controller. The only things about it that could be better is that it would be cool with a clutch pedal and the wheel is a little small for my liking. Other than that I think its a great accessory for the cash.
Dose this work for midnight club la complete edition And will it work for forza 4 please tell asap!!
Not All That Great
I bought this thinking it would be fun its not at all like driving. It vibrates but its hard to keep control in the games. I prefer the controller.
Great entry level racing wheel.
I'm not sure why everyone is giving this a bad review saying that's it's a cheap piece of junk. Granted you put it up against a PS3 Logitech or a top of the line $400-$700 fanatac wheel then sure it doesn't hold up, but keep in mind this is a $100 entry level wheel. People keep saying they are unable to keep control of their car during during and braking. Remember this wheel is supposed to make it much for realistic and challenging than when playing with a controller. I was hitting walls and spinning out for the first hour with the wheel, but it takes some time to adjust to it when coming from a controller. Once you get used to the sensitivatey and realistic feel of the wheel, it's an amazing feel and fun factor. It adds so much more excitement versus playing with the standard controller. This wheel DOES work with Forza 4 if anyone needs to know. Really the only thing I've found that I do not like is that the pedals slide around unless you have one foot holding the pedal stand still. I am trying to figure out a way to fasten them to keep them still during races. That is the only poor design on the wheel. The wheel itself has a good turning radious and is very responsive. The shifter is a huge draw and is the main reason I purchased this wheel for myself, the paddel shifters are a nice touch but I use the stick shifter. Overall this is a wonderful entry level wheel so long as you don't come in expecting a $500 fanatec wheel quality out of a $100 madcatz wheel.
every big racing game fan dids this its cheap to so you dont have to worry about monye
cheap don't buy it
my parents got me this for my 19th birthday and i came home and starting playing forza 4 with it and i could not control my car around turns at all and my gas would not go down all the way over all i thing its cheap and my parents ended up taking it back the nice day so dont buy it!!!!!!
