Hi rjay, I think the point about Daytona on DC is valid too but so many people seem to hate the handling of VP that there must be something in it ! In truth, I think you have to be pretty good in general at driving games to get the most fun out of it. Dodging the cars at high speed ? Yes, it's arcade alright, it's Crazy Taxi !!
I also only use my Madcatz controller, for driving games in particular, I'm not sure why ? Maybe the thumb stick feels slightly smoother ? Whatever, I use em too
