V3 Racing Wheel Review

(Print This Article)










&npsp; The videogame peripheral market is polluted with cheap imitations of officially licensed products. And almost every single unlicensed product breaks down but Interact is by far the most recognized accessory maker in the videogame business. They have brought out revolutionary products like the Gameshark and DexDrive. Now not only does Interact makes cheat devices, but the company has many other peripherals to try out. Specifically I will review one of their most popular peripherals as well the most popular wheel on the market, the V3 Racing Wheel. See if the Racing Wheel is worth the $40, or if it's a burn out.

&npsp; The racing wheel performs as well as a real car, well okay not really but you know what I mean. The V3 has numerous features in it to make your gameplay as comfortable as ever. You can adjust the height of your wheel, place the wheel base under your legs to secure it in one position, and you tilt the wheel's position. The best feature is that it is compatible with both systems, PSX and N64 and a plug converter is included with the wheel to change the plug from PSX outlet to N64 outlet. I have tried several wheels before, The Mad Catz Dual Shock, The GT2 Racing Wheel, and now the V3 Racing Wheel. The Mad Catz wheel was god awful, mostly because it was so stiff, the unit was too small, the pedals were too close, it wouldn't stand still, and most importantly it was uncomfortable. The GT2 Racing Wheel has no problems in its performance, except that it doesn't have pedals, but it has analog shifts in the back that you have to press on (which do feature sensitivity).

&npsp; V3 Racing Wheel had gone through many performance tests and compatibility tests from me, and I was astounded at what I saw. I played Test Drive 6, Driver, NFS 4, and Gran Turismo 2, now keep reading for the results.

Test Drive 6

Compatibility 9.6
Performance 8.4

Gran Turismo 2

Compatibility 9.0
Performance 10.0


Compatibility 5.0
Performance 2.0

Need For Speed: High Stakes

Compatibility 8.8
Performance 9.0

     The V3 definitely outperforms any other wheel on the market, it features many options, customization to fit you perfectly, and features that change the wheels sensitivity. Now that the price of the wheel has been greatly reduced to $40. If you are looking for an inexpensive wheel, this is the one to get especially if you are racing junkie.
