I really wasn't expecting much from this wheel - with it being so cheap; but I'd recently purchased 'Project Cars' on my PS4, and I was desperate for a better way to control this unwieldy game (seriously: trying to drive via the standard DS4 controller is torture).
This wheel delivered some wonderful performance!
It took some trial and error to wrap my mind around the wheel, and mapping controls on it, etc. But once I was set, the thing handles very well!
You'll get 180° of left-to-right rotation, so don't expect to have a true "simulation feel." The wheel just isn't built for 360° rotation.
The only real downside is that it has a series of suction cups on the bottom, where a vice grip would have made for a better experience - but bungee cords hold the thing to my table really nicely! :)
I wish that the pedals had some kind of weight to them - they're very light and tend to bounce around if not secured somehow. But, they are properly responsive.
The bottom line:
If you are looking for a reasonable wheel, this is it. It isn't an honest wheel - more of an emulator that mirrors the DS4 controller's primary functions, mapped over REALLY fancy buttons.
One big plus is that the wheel and pedals are precise. I haven't had a single glitch where I've thought the input into the game wasn't precisely what I steered with the wheel or worked with the pedals.
The Hori wheel uses suction cups to hold it down. I have a small cheap table I've used in the past, but it's rough surface keeps the suction cups from working. My new coffee table is smoother and I can barely get the wheel to come off so I'm not concerned about the lack of clamps at this point.
The build quality seems OK. Again, not nearly as nice as my older Logitech. This plastic wheel isn't as heavy as the wheels I've owned in the past, but they did a fine job of making it feel solid in your hands with rubber for a better grip. I don't think me or my seven-year-old could break it.
The wheel centers itself when you let go. It doesn't turn that far anyways. I like that it doesn't have bungee cords inside like the other brand that had issues where the car turns by itself, failing to re-center. I've never had any issues like that with this wheel. It has a reassuring tendency to center, and you know when you're passing through that mid-point.
The unit isn't wireless. The cord isn't long enough for my setup where I'm 8 feet away from the XBox. I'll buy a USB extension. It does have a kind of breakaway piece that has already saved my XBox's USB connector. Here's what I mean. There's a 4 inch section that stays plugged into the XBox when you trip over the cord. It's sort of like an extension. I just walk over and plug it back in.
The pedals connect to the main wheel using the kind of plug you'd find on a telephone. They work just fine, don't slip on my carpet and feel solid.
Forza Motorsports 5 works well with this Hori wheel. My daughter couldn't keep the car on the road with the XBox hand-held controller but can with this wheel. I don't use it for Forza because while I was waiting for the wheel to arrive, I started getting really fantastic lap times with the XBox hand-held controller, which turns out to make wild maneuvers easy that would tear the arms out of my sockets trying to do with a wheel.
The fact that the Hori wheel lacks infra-red lights for pairing may have some implications for consoles with Kinect. For controllers with the infra-red lights, the Kinect can tell who's touching a controller/wheel. With the Hori wheel, I get a disconnected message once or twice a night. I know from experience that can happen when the you hand the controller to someone else or the Kinect can't see a player anymore. I will report back if I figure it out, since it could be my fault, having poorly placed the Kinect, etc.
Works well with Forza 5
Has a cord
I was very surprised and pleased with the experience (for the money) of the 360 Hori wheel.
I was severely let down by this one.
Do not purchase this wheel. The controller is a much more involving method of control for any racing game. Do not be tempted, stay away. Save yourself.
THIS WHEEL WORKS IN PS4, PERIOD. I just tested it on Need for Speed Rivals and on DriveClub. Saying it does not work is a lie. Mentioning another manufacturer is pure commercial interest.
I will not give it five stars because of the size and its simplified character, but it works really nice for a cheap wheel. And being compact has its advantages. You can keep it on its box after you use.
