Logitech G27 Reviews
Sure, it’s hard to get used to gliding in a steering wheel game when you’re used to mouse/keyboard combos or analog sticks from your favorite gamepad. But when you manage to float around the corner with just the right amount of throttles and different keys to make you look like Finn, You will grin like a lion. Which will make you look more like a Finnish rally racer.
Forced feedback is the most important thing, and here is Logitech and G27 rules. With excellent strength feedback, you can feel the way the car is handling, allowing you to react faster than if you had to rely on visual cues only.
That is definitely a wheel for enthusiasts; ordinary racers will not get enough of this leather, plastic, and metal monster to justify spending.
The problem here, G25 is available for around £ 160 if you shop around which is half the price of this latest wheel.
So what did you miss with the old model? Oddly enough, what seemed to be missing were the six programmable buttons. The G25 has a switch to change gated gears to a simple sequential shift, which the G27 strangely lacks.
We hope that the final result of the G27 will be better and the clamps safer, but it is still easy to grab both the shift or the wheel from the table with a tight turn, and the gear stick as light as before.
The G25, then, is yet a fantastic racing wheel and for £ 160 it’s very cheap for such a serious simulator setup. In comparison, the G27 brings a little to the table because the price is a bit crazy.
The Bad > Full sim setup, Great force feedback
The Good > Crazy price, Little extra over the G25
Conclusion > It’s still a excellent racing sim setup, but also was the G25 and times have hardly changed
