I’m looking for a good joystick for BF2 and flight sims in general.
I have an old Saitek Cyborg 3D Gold USB joystick that doesn’t seem to work anymore; or it sort of works, but its always had calibration problems where one side doesn’t operate as it should; I think you can’t turn right like you should be able to. Also I don’t want to install the calibration software as its only for windows 95/98/ME/2000, and I’m on XP.
So I really need a new joystick thast will work for XP and Vista (in the small chance I do upgrade).
The problem is that most of the joysticks I’ve read reviews for on amazon have 3.5 stars, only a few have 4 stars, and all of them seem to have problems that give me pause.
But I have been looking at the Saitek ST290 (and even the ST90).
My questions are; why are there seemingly no really good joysticks, and what joysticks do you/have you owned that you would recommend?
