"When attempting to race with extreme precision on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the title, it seemed that the analogue control wasn’t quite up to the task. Incredibly minor adjustments to the racing line were handled fine, as were extreme, last-second “Oh-blast!” swerves to either side, but anything in-between simply wasn’t as precise as one would hope in a racing simulation."

Anyone planning to play this game as a "semi-sim" (I am) will surely be using a force feedback wheel and not a gamepad?
Shift 1 played quite well with wheel and pedals (the best cars at least, it was a very uneven game with many cars that felt terrible and some that handled great), so I'm expecting the same from Shift 2.
