Burnout... with a racing wheel? Crazy? Hard? Awesome??

#1 Posted by RainVillain (480 posts) -

Thinking of getting the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel for Gran Turismo 5 but am wondering how Burnout Paradise plays with a wheel. 
I've never played an arcade racer with a wheel and I wonder if the game's crazy turning would make driving with a wheel too slugish or whether it would work really well. 
Does anyone have any experience with the both of them?

I wonder how sensitive it would be.  If you do get it, make sure to let us know how it is.

Well I've tried playing arcade racing games with a wheel, and it's terrible. I've never tried it with Burnout Paradise, however, I think I would come to the same conclusion as I have with other titles.

When I bought my shitty $40 MadCatz wheel I played the Ridge Racer demo with it... Was actually pretty great, felt like how I remember the now-defunct arcade in my town.
 
I guess it depends on the game... Burnout probably wouldn't be so great just because of the twitch gameplay, but others work surprisingly well.

I've done it, it's not bad if your good with a wheel, but if you haven't used a wheel much, your in for a treat.

I would have thought Burnout would be way to twitch to use a Race Wheel. Burnout for me always seems to be either a nanometer left or right, or fully left or right.
