Mad Catz MC2 360 Wheel Review (X360)
Mad Catz has brought their MC2 wheel to the Xbox 360 and the result is just as good as the MC2 Universal wheel I reviewed back in 2004.

The MC2 360 performs great, is comfortable to use, and won’t put too big of a dent in your wallet. What more could you ask for?
