Need for Speed: Shift has great force feedback support for the G27. This is the only game that actually had a preset for the wheel (being released after the wheel came out didn’t hurt). Still no built-in LED support, though. As always, you will have to setup the buttons however you prefer in the options panel. After that, you can pretty much leave your other options in place.
