Thanks for the feedback, I was worried CodeMasters had made the game too "arcady" for the enthusiast to like it. Will have to see if its available here yet for the 360.

If you like the game with the keyboard, you'll simply love it with a wheel. A wheel, almost any wheel, simply transforms a driving game because of the proportional controls, especially the brakes. The Momo's a decent wheel, nicely priced for what it offers, you do not get a clutch though, the pedals are quite soft, & the driver's a bit iffy - different games have different issues with it. If you're getting the wheel, I'll also recommend LFS, fantastic game (sim) with this wheel

I tried the wheel at a friends place and loved it. Tried it on dirt 2 and just loved it even more (the feedback). Will get LFS also and try that..

Not a spoiler,but Mafia 2 has a HORRIBLE ending/climax that makes you curse the game

Fans of GTA4 should try out Just cause 2,Awesome game

I have been playing the Gran Tourismo 5 for the last 1 month.
Its awesome. I bought the Logitech GT Wheel also. I would say the combination is one of the best things you can get if you love car racing games. Have not played Forza so cant comment on that.

I also played Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Its online play is just so addictive. Having played Counter Strike a lot a, I really enjoyed Modern Warfare 2 a lot.

Right now playing Heavy rain move edition where i'm putting my recently acquired move controllers to good use. Its a good game but lacks slightly on the involvement. Feels like as if i'm watching a movie.
Can anyone suggest what are the best games which support move and ps3 eye. Can we use move on GT5??

I think you should be able to, but it wouldnt give you that fun or feel factor as a controller would. I think playing it with the controller would be easier.

After playing GTA IV for months, switching back to San Andreas and suddenly the graphics feel so ancient :P

BTW, anybody on TBHP plays Counter Strike on Steam? Post your ID's, my id is PR4733K

Wonderful thread about amazing games . In my humble opinion, you have to play Killzone 3 if you like FPS games. This is the best game I have ever played. Other favorites are Resistance 1 and 2, CoD: Modern Warfare and Infamous. From the PC genre, it's Delta Force series and Quake III Arena (Multiplayer)
