4 out of 5 eggs Stellar Racing Sim 12/18/2013

This review is from: Forza Motorsports 5 Xbox One Microsoft

Pros: - Amazing graphics
- Racing physics are solid
- Love the realism options - makes it where you can go from really kid friendly to adult awesome!
- Drivatar out there earning you additional credits is a great add

Cons: - Reduction in tracks and cars is disappointing

Other Thoughts: I have to admit that I do not usually get into the nuances of car setups, tuning, etc., so you can take this as a review coming from an average race gamer.

I really love playing this game, as frustrating as it can be, because it relies on you to be very technical in your driving as you add realism options.

I am looking forward to exploring some of the more granular settings with my car as I get better at racing, but for now I'm just having a blast even with my limited skill set.

The reduction in car and track options from Forza 3 is disappointing, but if you can get past that you will have a great time with this sim.

Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Controller

1 out of 5 eggs WAY Overpriced 12/13/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox One Wireless Controller

Pros: The controller itself I love. Everything is placed really well and it looks really cool

Cons: $60??? Really, Microsoft???? It's a nice controller, but that is a really lame price point and the reason I only gave it the one egg rating.

Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition

3 out of 5 eggs Nice Wheel, Lousy Setup and Pedals 12/13/2013

This review is from: Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition

Pros: - Nice feel
- Great force feedback
- Very expandable
- Looks awesome

Cons: - First-time driver and firmware setup SUCKS! Manual and website are beyond unhelpful. Luckily I have experience working with sucktastic installers so I figured it out. People with less technical knowledge are going to want to bring this thing back out of frustration.
- Pedals are flimsy and cheap for a $400 controller
- It costs $400
- Wish it didn't need the usb cable. It makes it hard to set up and use since my xbox is far from my table.

Other Thoughts: Got this with the racing bundle from NewEgg. On it's own I never would have purchased it. The only controller I've purchased that was anywhere near the cost of this one was when I bought Steel Battalions, and I don't play racing games nearly enough to get my money's worth from it like I did the SB controller.

However, if you love racing games, you have to have an awesome force feedback wheel,and money is not really an issue, you could do a lot worse than this controller.
