Best Racing Games for Logitech G25 Racing Wheel

8674 Views 42 Posts Locked PS3 Software
Finally took the plunge and bought myself a G25. Now awaiting delivery.... then realised other than rFactor (that comes wif it), i've got nothing else to play it with!

What do u guys think? what is the best driving game out there at the moment?
well until gt5 comes out you should get prologue...maybe motorstorm?

Gran turismo 5 prologue.

Try midnight club LA ?
Ferrari Challenge is a decent game that should be good for the racing wheel.
other than that, Prolouge.

Yeah, there arent too many good simulator games out on ps3..
I'm not sure about Midnight Club LA with a steering wheel. I find arcade games aren't fun with a steering wheel, only driving simulators.

Like everyone else, I just suggest Ferrari Challenge and GT5 Prologue for now. Maybe Supercar Challenge ... and then eventually Gran Turismo 5
GT5P hands down

Thats like the only best option for the best realism with the full use of the G25
try sega rally and grid
wow! that's a really quick response

so far, i think the positives are for GT5 Prologue.

Anyone knows where to get it cheap?

i have read up on Grid and find it pretty attractive. will keep an eye out for it

I'm taking preorders for the G27 now. S.R.P. $599.00
my ps3 member price $529.00

Description:
Replacing and improving upon the venerable G25 Racing Wheel, the Logitech G27 Racing Wheel is designed to deliver the definitive sim racing experience. A diagonal-cut, helical gear system creates a smooth and accurate force feedback experience, while more programmable buttons on the wheel and two stainless steel shifter paddles put the functions you need within your reach. With the G27, whether youre sliding sideways around a gravelly curve, or screaming through the streets of Monaco, the worlds greatest circuits feel closer than ever.

Key Features
Powerful, dual-motor force feedback mechanism with helical gearing smoothly and accurately simulates traction loss, weight shift, and road feel, with quiet steering action.
Six-speed shifter with push-down reverse gear allows you to quickly choose exactly the right gear.
RPM/shift indicator LEDs integrate with racing game software to indicate when to should shift gears.
Realistic 11-inch wheel with leather-wrapped rim provides a more comfortable, true-to-life racing experience for hours on end.
Steel gas, brake, and clutch pedals deliver precise throttle, braking, and shifting control for heightened realism.

System Requirements
Windows XP or Windows Vista
20 MB of available hard disk space
CD-ROM drive
1 USB port

PlayStation2 or PLAYSTATION3
Games that support

initial D, and nascar 09 are really good for it too. also it goes really well with GRID, and colin mcrae.
Wow! that's really expensive for the G27. Altho come to think of it, that's the RRP of the G25 at HN, DSE, etc.

i got my G25 at fluidtek.com.au at Carlingford, Sydney for $239.

been waiting a while cos even the 2nd hand G25s on eBay are going for around $280 (B4 postage)! Sometimes, i wonder how ppl bid on eBay...
next project, to make a Playseat for the G25. Not gonna pay over $500 for the retail ones!

maybe get a cheap racing seat and start making a stand for it...

anyone done anything similar?
Go to a exhaust place. If titanium is a reasonable price get them to cut it up, do the bends. Im sure it could be done in a few pieces and be taken apart easy and they could use the expander for the joins makng it easy to put together and take apart..
For GRID, you have to make sure you have the correct settings. I haven't been able to try it out yet, but google them. I've played it on default, and it's not that great.
maybe nfs shift?
is that game suppost to be a realistic driving game???
why did u get the G25 you could've waited and gotten something more epic like this one like im getting later

k omg that is epic
have u seen the price above?

someone's offering pre-order on G27 at $528.

i got my G25 at less than half the price. I don't think paying twice the price gives u twice the enjoyment . At the end of the day, i will be sitting at home wif my G25 and have nothing else to compare it wif.

also, for half a grand (which would b the same price as the PS3 Slim), i don't think the wife's gonna b very happy!
yea i know right but the best game could possibly be GRID to use the steering wheel until need for speed comes out (closest racing new release)
r u talking about NFS Shift? it sounds pretty exciting
yep sure am but if you wanna try a game out try GRID
to be honest, this will probably be the one and only time i ever buy a racing wheel for a game. Have been dreaming of this ever since i first played Gran Turismo (the original) more than 10 years ago!

i think it is going to make driving simulators a totally new ballgame now! still drives me insane how my BIL (brother in law) plays F1 with the normal controller.

Wife's a bit of a hoon too, so i m trying to get her into some driving game wif me. will b good for marital bliss (i hope!). only prob right now is if we play head to head . Guess who's gonna use the controller!
Well ive tried quite a few racing games with the G25 wheel and GRID was rubbish with the wheel if you are playing grid stick with the controller.

Games that a great with the G25 Wheel are GT5:P, Supercar Challenge, Ferrari Challenge, Initial D : Extreme Stage and Formula 1 CE.

NFS : Shift and Dirt 2 ill test when i buy em.
