Logitech G29 Racing Wheel Review
It would be ridiculous to test on anything other than Project Cars, particularly given that it was obviously developed in partnership with Logitech. Everything you can think of can be mapped, and the force feedback is tunable to incredible levels. If you want the wheel to fight you but don't like the judder over the kerbs, that can be done. If you're particularly demanding the 18 buttons (besides the paddles) should cover almost everything you'll ever need mid-race.
But, I hear you ask, is there really a benefit to using a wheel over a pad? And the answer to that is an unhesitating yes. Sure that might seem like a "well duh" answer, but it is worth pointing out why. Let's start with the sheer travel available. The G29 wheel has way more travel than the few mm available from the stick on a pad. Because you have larger travel you can use subtler movements. The amount of times that you'll spin with a pad and yet save it with a wheel are innumerable.
There are similar benefits in the pedals. Sure in a low power car, or with so many assists that you might as well be watching a video, you can hustle a car around with a pad without too many dramas. But as soon as you play it properly - the only correct setting for assists is off - and in a car that requires constant gentle adjustments to balance the power and grip the game truly comes alive with the G29. Cars, and indeed championship series, which were previously beyond your reach are now not only in your grasp but vastly more fun to play. The ability to gently apply, or reduce, the throttle and braking in a manner way beyond that you can manage with the triggers on a pad helps keep the car under your control and the laptime tumbling.
I had used my Logitech Momo Racing for years, knew it like the back of my hand and had my muscle memory fully tuned to make the most of my setup and talent, or rather middling talent. With the G29 it might have taken me a few days to adapt to the vastly improved pedal setup, but even with such a brief time behind the wheel my PBs were tumbling. It's a testament to the quality and consistency of the components when allied to a force feedback engine that provides seriously realistic feedback. You get a much better feel for when the suspension is binding up, or you've been a little leaden-footed in your throttle application, or even just locking up a brake. This feedback works on an almost subconscious level letting you focus on the business of winning races in the shortest possible time.
