I recently got the Logitech G29 (xbox version called G290), was quite overpriced at launch but recently has been on sale in the U.K. It makes a huge difference to a simulator like Project Cars, the amount of control and feedback transforms the experience. On less realistic games like Driveclub it will still increase the fun but isnít as transformative as the game has less to communicate to the wheel, the factors to consider when purchasing are firstly the price (how many racing games do you play, what types and how much?), the space needed in your room and need for a stand or cockpit to house it and also the fact you will need to set it up in project cars as the default settings arenít terrible but far from perfect. This can be quite frustrating at first as there are so many settings but once you get them close to right, itís very rewarding. I went for it and have no regrets. My biggest tip would be if you get a wheel make sure it has Force Feedback, the cheaper ones donít and tbh aside from the immersive wheel element arenít much better than a good controller.

Is this game more like GT/Forza or more like Driveclub?

On a scale of realism from lowest to highest, this it the general consensus give or take due to personal preference:

Driveclub Ė Forza/GT Ė Project Cars Ė iRacing/Asseto Corsa

Iím personally finding it surprisingly forgiving giving its sim reputation. The fact it focuses on racing cars means to you get a lot of high downforce cars that handle the road very well but are rewarding to drive. Iíve played a lot of Forza and that game was always challenging because of the cars tendency to be extremely tail happy (without assists) almost to the point of exageration. The step up isnít as much as I expected going to Project Cars but I donít think itís as well setup for the controller as Forza which has always been exceptional in that regard, so there is an extra layer to consider as the controls might make it harder than the physics would dictate. On a wheel though its top notch.

If you're going to play Project cars you better be a fan of racing games. By that i mean if you just want to run 3 lap races don't waste your time. My tires are not even warmed up in 3 laps. Where this game shines is in the longer races. I have this game for both consoles and I've barely touched the career mode. I just set up solo races against the A.I. ( which are some of the best A.I. I've raced against) and I do a least 15 lap races, usually more. I like to start at the back of the pack, I run with 19 A.I. cars. Some races I can work my way to 1st place, others I fight just to stay in 17th place. It depends on the car and track. This game is about real racing and it's edge of your seat racing as well once you get the A.I. difficulty set to match your skill level.
