I Play 30 Minutes of DiRT Rally With the Logitech G29 Driving Force Wheel on PS4 [Video]

I recently became the owner of a Logitech G29 Driving Force steering wheel controller (thank to Logitech PR for that and G Style Magazine) and what better game to try that out on than with the newly release DiRT Rally by Codemasters and Deep Silver. This post isn’t going to be a full review of either products and instead is just going to be a post with captured footage of me playing DiRT Rally using the G29.

Some initial impressions:

  • The Logitech G29 Steering wheel is amazingly well built. It’s very similar to the old Logitech GT wheel for the PS3, but has more buttons and a better layout. It is however missing the stick shift, but it does have paddle shifters. I’ll have more on the G29 later when I post a few review up for it over at G Style and here.
  • DiRT Rally is not an easy game. Because it’s a sim, there is a pretty steep learning curve. This is not an arcade racer. One mistake will send you flying off course.
  • Mashing down on the accelerator is not ideal. There are so many twists and turns that you’ll find yourself understeering past a turn and into a ditch or tree. This game requires a good knowledge of braking technique and when to accelerate and when to brake.
  • If you can, play this game with a steering wheel. It’s the only way really to enjoy driving games. I don’t even know what it’s like to play this with a controller.
  • The graphics are really pretty in DiRT Rally, especially during the replays.
  • I still suck at this but I’m getting better with practice.

Well, that’s about it for now. There will be full review of DiRT Rally as I get more playtime with it. In the meantime, check out my first 30 minutes or so of actual gameplay.
