Saitek R440 Force Wheel
30 November 2006
Excerpt: The Saitek R440 Force Wheel uses TouchSense technology to provide realistic response to the road, and the full-size pedals and gearshift paddles might make you forget you're just playing a game. It has four wheel-mounted buttons, gas and brake pedals, and twin gearshifts that give you access to buttons for switching views and pulling up menus.
Excerpt: Let's kick it old school for a moment; some of my fondest gaming memories occurred while playing car racing sims. Unlike other games that solely consisted of buttons and sometimes a spinner, racing sims really drew you into the action. Not for their state of the art graphics, No! They drew you in because of the steering wheels and control pedals.
Conclusion: Overall, I have to give this wheel my highest recommendations. Despite some of its minor flaws and shortcomings, it really is an exceptional value. It truly brought enjoyment to all the games I played and made a tedious driving game into a fun and exciting adventure.
Conclusion: F1 Challenge The light steering of the wheel hampered it somewhat in this game. This is because it led to jerkier movements as it is too easy to turn the wheel. Once I had gotten used to it I managed alright, but I still struggled to maintain the smoothness I can achieve with other wheels. The force feedback effects are excellent and you have to really fight the car with the levels turned up.
