Sidewinder wheel

Christopher Laws, Amazon
20 June 2000
  • Summary: Wow! I think this wheel is great! IF you play any racing games at all you should run out and buy this product. The force feedback is simply great and the wheel is of high quality material too.

Superb stick

iihay, Ciao
27 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "The Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 is a superb piece of engineering. I would reccomend this to anyone needing a joystick. I specifically purchased this for Microsoft FLight sim 2000 as this is virtually impossible to play without a one and I am very impressed by the new dimension that this stick gives to the sim. I have not bought or used a joystick since my 8-bit days so I was very impressed with the tecnological advances since then. The ...
  • Pros: Superb extra dimension to games and very well made
  • Cons: large footprint

What Great fun

JJsalis99, Ciao
31 July 2001
  • Excerpt: "This is a very fun joystick and I wouldn't be without it. Mind you I also wouldn't have it as my only joystick because it's not that good for games which don't surport it. I have a Saitek Cyborg 3D for those, but almost all games DO surport it these days so my cyborg spends most of its time on a self picking up dust. My only problem with this stick is its very tacky trigger, all rest of the buttons are fine so why is it so badly made and give out ...
  • Pros: Very good fun .
  • Cons: Cheap fire button .

EnJoy your Joystick

Simwwjd, Ciao
9 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "This product is amazing. I remember the first time I used this sidewinder. I used it on Combat Flight Sim, and have been addicted to it ever since. The smoothness, and control alongside the actual feeling of being in the plane! I got to the point where when I turned the joystick up the left and I moved my whole body to the left, and fell off my chair! It is very responsive, easy to use, not particularly expensive, and a joy to use like the name ...
  • Pros: Great Joystick
  • Cons: Quite a bit of money has to be forked out

Wrench that wrist

steve.top..., Ciao
23 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "I bought my Microsoft Force Feedback two years ago and while a lot of my games use the mouse (QuakeII, HalfLife) those that require a joystick are so much better served. Feel the tarmac when taking off in Microsoft's Flight Sim. Feel the stick kick when entering hyperspace in X-Wing Alliance. In fact, any game that supports force feedback will give you an extra dimension to your game play. When playing Conflict Freespace for example, you know ...
  • Pros: Heavy and stable .  More buttons than you can shake a stick at .
  • Cons: A bit noisy .  For right handed people only .

A harder Kick Than David Beckham

Andy0468, Ciao
15 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "Microsoft's latest offering, the Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 USB Joystick, has a certain air about it. If you're used to 'normal' joystick's, the first thing that gets your attention is the mains plug. That's right, a mains plug. The second thing is it's sheer..... size! It's a bit of a heft lump, but with a reasuringly 'quality' feel to it - trademark Microsoft. Ergonomically sound, The hand moulds nicely to the stick with all 4 stick buttons, ...
  • Pros: Think San Fransisco, 1907 .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .
  • Cons: Sheer size !

Ultimate in gaming excellence.

perera, Ciao
11 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "The Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feed back joy stick brings computer gaming to a whole new level, with its sleak black look, this great joy stick holds a big punch behind its casing, and i mean a big punch. It has loads of pre programable buttons and vibrates and creates a pull on the handeling which adds a bit of realisim to your computers desktop. It has an auto throttle lever and has many pros and not many cons. THe only problem with this joystick ...
  • Pros: Force Feedback

Wrench your wrists off.. in a good way

Scottola, Ciao
5 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "I love my Sidewinder Force Feedback, simple as that. It is the best joystick I've ever bought and can enhance a game beyond all recognition. Take Breakneck, a pretty average racing game with slightly dodgy controls. Add a little Sidewinder and WOW it's transformed into one of the best pure arcade racing games I've ever played. The controls are great and the actual force feedback is out of this world, every lump, bump and hump is felt. If you ...

Excellent Joystick, a must for Flight Sim Enthusiasts

daveashcr..., Ciao
29 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "At not much short of £80 this joystick IS expensive, but for the range of features it provides I would say it is worth it. Of primary use to fans of flight simulators it is also compatible with a lot of other games, and since it is fully programmable you can create game profiles for any other game you have. When playing MS Flight Sim 2000, the game is changed completely. The reassurring vibration through the stick when you are taxiing down the ...
  • Pros: Excellent Range of features
  • Cons: Expensive
