Most reviewers use controllers. Still the main focus group of console games.
I´m also under the impression that some of these pro-reviewers are slightly biased or suffering from the Ferrari Syndrome, where they are afraid to be too critical to MS, because if they are, they wont get invites for new events and games.
Even if they do advertise wheel support, it never is as good as on PC. No customized wheel configurations and not customized setup.
In Forza games, you have to hook up pedals and shifters through the wheelbase or it wont work or is not supported. There are adapters but nothing really works with everything.
So, only if you use a complete set from a single brand, you get good wheel support on console games. And only if the developers spent some time to create good support.
Turn10 does it as a last priority. So the whole game is developed using controllers.
If they would take wheel support serious, it should be there from the start, like in pC2. Even if that is probably not a good example with all the complaints.
I upgraded my old racing rig to W10, just to be able to play Forza games, but never got it to work properly, lol.
Only with a controller, but for me that is unimersive.
Too bad really, as the car sounds are the best and there is enough eye candy.
But as long as they do not incorporate good wheel support with the option to make custom setups like mine work, i will stay away from Forza.
