I like this game, but Sega should be thoroughly disgusted with themselves for the complete inability to play properly with a wireless wheel.
On the Wii, just about the only thing my wife loved was Mario Kart and the first Sonic; once Kinect came out, we ditched the Wii entirely. At Christmas we decided that, to try to get her playing again, we'd get this along with the wireless speed wheel, so it was a more 'Wii-esque' system for her to get to grips with.
Unfortunately, the wheel has no thumbsticks, so Sega thoughtfully decide to make use of these and have ZERO options for anything else. Flight controls - you have to use the left thumbstick to go up or down, point-blank refusing to use the wheel as a yoke = fly straight into walls!; stunts controlled by the right thumbstick with no option to use the (unused) d-pad. Appalling!
And half a dozen stores are doing a console+wireless wheel+Sonic package...
I will enjoy this with a controller, but we bought it for my wife to have fun with... Hang your head in shame, Sega.
Edit: and a slight aside to OXM that they didn't try out an official MS accessory and note this issue in their review.
