I'll give credit where credit is due. People complained about the pedals being too soft and going to the ground flat unrealistically. Hori fixed that. They didn't raise the price. People complained the wheel was too easy to turn. Hori listened. They fixed that.
My ONLY complaint about this wheel at this price point, is it really wouldn't cost much more and I'd even pay an extra twenty dollars for the wheel to be a few inches bigger. I've gotten used to it after only a few hours but it does feel like I'm driving a go kart.
You want realistic steering feedback? Go spend seven hundred dollars because that is the point where you'll stop complaining about it. Other than that. Hori has fixed most complaints with the new version and at such a low price this wheel is exactly where it should be. Not sure if you want to spend the money on a super expensive wheel? Use this as a starter. I've been using it for a few weeks and I'm pretty sure by Christmas I'll be upgrading to a more expensive model, but this wheel allowed me to make that decision without blowing a ton of money on something I might never use.
Anyway, we were all flummoxed at first because the wheel was essentially turning itself--we could have sort of just sat back and watched---until my older kiddo told us we should just change the "haptic feedback" [or whatever] setting. The problem is, after we did that, the game was unplayable (at least in "automatic"--that is, not manual-gear-shifting--mode).
We couldn't get the thing to go in reverse at all--a real problem with Horizon--and the folls at Hori just said, "Yeah, a whole lot of people have that problem. Just try it in manual [stick-shift] mode--maybe it'll work." When I explained *I* (grown adult) don't even drive stick-shift [real] cars, and there was about a 0% chance my 8-year-old (who can play these games bizarrely well (& just using just the Xbox One controller)--anyway, when I said there's no way my 8-year-old (or possibly even my older kiddo) could play the game with manual shifting [this thing of course doesn't come with a shifter---you just have to use something on the wheel for that], the response was, "Oh, well, as I said, 'Yeah, a lot of people call us about not being able to go in reverse and other stuff in manual,' so I don't know, Ma'am. Yeah, it's designed for automatic-transmission playing, but it really doesn't work well at all."
The point was completely moot the following morning, when I decided to try out the thing in manual: the pedals [at least the accelerator--no clue about the brake] no longer worked!
(Unless you're willing to spend quite big bucks on this game accessory, I would just have the kids (or whoever) play Horizon games using the Xbox One controller. We tried the 3x-more-expensive Logitech brand, too--and it simply stopped working during the first week of very light play.)
Reasonably good control in forza 7
Various levels of sensitivity adjustment.
Calibration can be a pain at times.
Sometimes it will just not work.
Pedals will flop about and are a pain to use on a hardwood floor at least.
