Nintendo Joy-Con Wheel (Set of 2) - Nintendo Switch
The official ones have a soft touch plastic, where these have a plastic that looks and feels cheaper. I am just talking about the look/texture because these AmazonBasics wheels are just as sturdy as the official wheels. While the plastic isn't thin, it looks cheaper. This doesn't affect play at all.
The wheel part of these AmazonBasics Steering Wheel is thinner than the official wheel. The bump on the back is bigger on this wheel than the official wheel. When you put the thinner and thicker part together, both the official wheel and this are the same thickness overall. They're also both very similar in wheel size. I feel like this AmazonBasics one might be a hair bigger around, but it's not worth even mentioning. I think the official wheel feels slightly better in my hand, but it's not a wide margin of victory.
Both the official and this one hold the Joy-Con just as well. Both require you to line up the + or the - symbol so the SL and SR work right. The AmazonBasics wheel "pops" in and out a little more and the official wheel "sinks" in and "slides" out. It's doesn't matter, but it's another reason the official wheel feels a little more premium.
The SL and SR buttons are not as good. They look uglier and the button has to travel much further to register a press. By travel I mean you have to press it further. The official wheel's buttons also press at an angle while these press straight up and down. It hasn't hindered gameplay in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but I like the feel of the wheel and use it in other games too. If your game needs fast SL or SR pressing, it's much easier to press it a lot on the official wheels.
These wheels are in no way horrible, but the official are more comfortable and the buttons are better.The AmazonBasics wheel colors are kinda cool. If you're only using these for Mario Kart 8, I don't think the differences matter as much. I personally would buy the official wheel instead. I've found the official wheels comfortable enough that I use them for grips for many single Joy-Con games so I use them for many games so the differences matter more to me.
I have to admit they are smaller than I thought they'd be, but it makes sense given their size relative to the controllers and the original steering wheels from the Wii. I've added a picture for scale.
Overall, though, very good accessories for the Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
I do like the colors though. When playing with four people it makes it easier to remember which controller belongs to each person. We bought this pack of blue and red and another set of black ones. Black controllers go into the red and blue. Red and blue controllers go into the black wheels. Easy.
There's a little bit of side-to-side play in the slot for the controller, so that the joycon can slip around about a half-inch, but it's nothing serious (and I think it might even be intentional, because if you line up the + or - button with the controller, then the should buttons align perfectly for the left and right joycons.
They're comfortable to hold (although more for a kid's hands than an adult's), the should buttons work well, and the colors match exactly.
They're also easy to get the joycon into and out of (my not-quite-6-year-old can do it easily) and they hold securely without any concern that the joycon might slip out.
