Long before I went to Las Vegas I caught wind of this products release. Cameron and I both asked if we could have a look at it then, but I got the true story of what happened at CES. While we were fast in our request, there were a limited number of samples at the time and the "extras" at that time soon got gobbled up by all those in the office with the privilege to do so. With a toy as cool as this is; I can completely see these flying off the desk if they aren't glued down. All it took was seeing the wheel on the table at CES to inspire me to discuss my inclination to buying racing titles over FPS or MMO offerings. It then turned into a bit of Q&A as to what games I had already and what I liked about the driving styles. After that was the promise that as soon as they could, SteelSeries would provide me with this wheel for my own testing.
The day has come that I have fully tried out many titles with this new racing steering wheel and I think you are really going to like what you find here in this review and in the product, as I did. Conventional wheels need a desktop to mount to and a place for the pedals to go and hopefully not slide across the room as you use them. With this concept it is more about comfort and convenience while still offering you a very involved feeling on a wheel that doesn't offer force feedback or vibration support. Since it had been a really long time since I used a wheel for games, I also made sure to get to Chris' house and tried out his force feedback setup with the chair and the works just to be sure I had a full perspective of what is offered currently in the "clamp-on wheel" category.
What I will be willing to say up front, is even without the tactile feel of the wheels on the road, or the vibration of the car as you slide out into the marbles, it makes this wheel no less appealing or fun to use with your favorite racers, SIM or arcade games. Speaking of SIM racing, this wheel is built specifically to work in conjunction with Simraceway, but loads as a default wheel controller and lacks the need for drivers to work with almost any PC title offering out there.
I really think you should stick around and see what the SteelSeries [SÂ¹] SRW-S1 Steering Wheel offers as I really had and am still having a blast using it for all of my racing now!
