After Santa delivered an Xbox One and a handful of games, Forza 5 caught my attention immediately. After playing the game for a few days with a controller, I decided to splurge on a top of the line racing wheel for a more immersive experience. (A friend turned me onto racing wheels a few years ago and it redefined the racing experience on PC and console.) Over the last three to four years, I’ve enjoyed all sorts of racing wheels, from a low-end but solid Mad Catz for the 360, to the top of the line Logitech offering in the form of the G25 and G27 for the PC (the pinnacle of racing wheels/pedals in my humble opinion).
Unfortunately the choice for racing wheels is currently quite slim for the Xbox One so I pulled the trigger on one of the only only high end options currently released, the Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition. Ordered from GameStop online, the wheel arrived promptly and I set about putting the accessory through its paces. This is a honest review of my experience and opinion with this wheel.
