Thrustmaster Ferrari Force Feedback Racing Wheel Review - Thrustmaster Ferrari Force Feedback - Page 4

With the recent rise in popularity of driving games, there has been great demand for a higher level of realism. Titles that come to mind are the Need For Speed series, the Nascar series and the Formula One series. While these games can be fun to play with a gamepad or keyboard, let's face it, playing a racing game using the arrow keys on your keyboard is no where near as fun as using a full sized racing wheel with pedals and a gear stick. Come join Asher "Acid" Moses as he takes a look at the latest edition to the Thrustmaster range, the Ferrari Force Feedback racing wheel.

- The Pedals

 

 

Decent pedal systems in current racing wheels are few and far between. The key to a good pedal system is weight. You have to be sure that while playing, the pedals will stay planted on the ground at all times and not slip. Unfortunately, the Ferrari Force Feedback's pedal system is plagued by this exact problem. I found that while in use, the pedal system tended to move around quite a bit which proved to be quite frustrating and difficult to play with.

 

The pedals themselves however are quite decent. They are just the right size for my feet and are not placed too far apart. Another thing I liked about these pedals was that they are not over sensitive so you can be sure that you won't press one of them by accident.

 

A topic that has been subject to much debate is whether or not you should drive using one or two feet. Some people find that it is more comfortable using one foot while others find it better to use two. On this particular pedal system, I find it easier to use one foot because they tend to move around a lot more whilst playing with two feet. The pedals are also quite close together so you will not have a problem playing with one foot.
