It sticks to the heart of sports car lovers! Review "Logicool G29 Driving Force Steering Wheel & Pedal"!

スポーツカー好きの心にぶっ刺さる!「Logicool G29 Driving Forceステアリングホイール&ペダル」をレビュー!
Review

I like games, but I also like cars. The perfect game for people like that is a racing game.
Even in the funglr Games editorial department, where there are many gaming enthusiasts, we have recently been hearing "I want to play a racing game! We have recently created an environment for racing games.
The most important thing for this environment. That is, of course, the " Hankon," or steering wheel-type controller.
The controller we chose this time is the " Logitech G29 Driving Force Steering Wheel & Pedals ( G29)" sold by Logitech, a Japanese subsidiary of Logitech, which manufactures gaming devices such as gaming keyboards and mice.
Let's review it while actually playing!

The quality of the "G29" is better than that of a real car!

Let's start with the unboxing ceremony!
The box, designed in Logitech's typical blue color scheme, is heavy and bulky.

Inside is the steering wheel, pedal, power adapter, and various documents.

The steering wheel is luxuriously wrapped in leather.
It is even stitched to look just like a real car, or even better than a real car.
A blue neutral marker in Logitech's color is placed at the 12 o'clock position, making it easy to see the steering wheel's angle of turn.

The various buttons are also laid out in a central location that is easy to see and press.
The paddles used for shifting are made of metal, and seem to provide a solid feel to ensure a reliable shift change.

The pedals are also made of metal. They are also equipped with a non-slip surface.
There are three pedals: accelerator, brake, and clutch. Like the real car, the accelerator pedal is thin, and the distance between it and the brake pedal is wide.
The semi-gloss finish is beautiful. It is regrettable that this modeling beauty can hardly be seen while driving.
The clutch pedal is included, but the "shifter," which allows lever shifting, is sold separately.

The pedals are all a bit heavy, but they move smoothly.
If they are too light or jerky, delicate gas pedal work and brake release will be difficult, but the G29 seems to have no such issues.

Various cables can be connected at the bottom of the unit.
There is also a guide that allows the cables to escape, so there is no messy wiring.

I tried setting it up right away.
Tighten the clamps firmly to secure it in place.
During a game, the force feedback that you can feel from the unevenness of the road surface and the force applied to the tires is quite strong, so if the clamp is not secured properly, it may slip off or at worst, come off.
To prevent this from happening, make sure there is no looseness after fastening.

Linear operation makes racing games more enjoyable!

Yuchan, aka PUBG Lover Man, was more anxious for the arrival of the G29 than anyone else in the editorial team.
He is an unrivaled car enthusiast who also drives a sports car in his private life, so let him give us his review.

About the quality of the car

The leather-wrapped steering wheel! This alone is enough to get me excited.
The slightly flattened 6 o'clock position is also very sports car-like.
If you like sports cars, this quality makes you say, "You know what I mean! If you like sports cars, this quality makes you want to say, "You know what you're doing!

The pedals are not plastic, but metal. I am worried that plastic pedals might get bent, but with these pedals, I can step on them without any worries.

How does it feel to operate?

The steering movement is very linear. The force feedback is very similar to the feeling of driving.
It doesn't feel like a "pop! The steering wheel moves as if it is being resisted by something, rather than with a "gulp" of force.
You can feel a natural operating feel.

The pedals have sensors (?) positioned parallel to the force vector. The pedal has a sensor (?) parallel to the force vector, so it seems to reproduce the subtle force.
The pedals do not feel like "just like a switch," and have a moderate weight, which is also good.

The paddle shifters are also appropriately weighted and can be operated firmly.
If I had to say something, I would say that I would have liked a little more moderation.

Button placement is exquisite, and it is difficult to press the wrong button even when concentrating on the game screen.
All the necessary buttons are there, but being able to press any of them reliably is a big advantage during a race.
The longer the race goes on, the more opportunities there are to make adjustments during the race, such as ABS and stabilization.

Wrap-up

The G29 is not a controller that was made for the sole purpose of winning games.
Of course it's nice to win at racing games. But since I love driving so much that I decided to install a handheld controller, it is also important to feel good when I am driving.
The G29 incorporates elements of a sports car, such as the leather-wrapped steering wheel and metal pedals.
With its attention to feel and appearance, this product is sure to satisfy both racing game enthusiasts and car enthusiasts.
It's not something you can easily afford, but the quality is well worth the money!

Quality that car lovers should use at least once!

This is Yu-chan's review of the G29.
He seems to like the G29 so much that he gets behind the wheel and plays racing games with it every day.
Various members of the editorial office also used the G29, and even a member who was playing a racing game for the first time said, "It's fun! He even played for almost two hours..."
We know that many days are still spent cooped up at home, but why don't you enjoy driving with the G29, which has a high quality feel and natural operability, and doubles the fun of racing games?
