    If you get mad at your controller enough to make the spatial and financial sacrifice, yes. It's really that simple. I get the feeling you aren't mad at your controller yet, or you wouldn't be asking, so you might as well wait until you are.

    It's not an option for everybody but personally if I had to play with a controller only, I probably would play a different game.

    To put it simply YES !

    WHy ? If you love cars and racing games at all it is well worth the investment for the enjoyment alone !

    You get the immersion of driving a car which is what we are here for ?

    If you chose to buy a force feed back wheel you get feeling and more data back from the wheel that you wont from a gamepad .

    You then open up all types of options to add racing cockpit , gear shifter and so on ( that list is never ending ) for more immersion.

    It feels natural right out of the box , bring a friend over who isn't a big gamer and hand them a game pad to play then let them play on a wheel , you will see a smile and they will be familiar with whats required to do to drive.

    The plusses are many the negatives are none

    WARNING you will be slower for the first few days if you have extensively used a gamepad but once you are comfortable with the wheel will be easier to run consistent times and better times as you will be smoother.

    A decent wheel really does take the gaming experience to a new level, but be careful...

    When i got started back on the xbox 360 i bought 2 wheels in quck succession before i then purchased a quality ( in that case fanatec) product...

    The mral is really buy the best you can afford and if that means hanging on and saving for a bit it may end up actually saving you money in the long run if the sim racing bug really bites you...lol

    You would quite rightly assume that anyone who spent as much on a wheel as they did on the original console was insane. Until you try it. I don't think there are many round here who regret the day they bought their wheel.

    Wheel all the way. With that said, proper installation, where you're comfortable, where Seat/Sterring - pedal - shifters doesn't move is highly suitable.

    If you're moving alot, you won't find it enjoyable.
