I believe a large part of this is the quality of the wheel you get.
As the lower quality cheaper wheels probably have worse 'feel'. A higher quality wheel I expect would translate better into the game.
I have heard that under heavy use the potentiometers in the pedals wear out though.
On the topic of brands and wheel types, I have heard good things about the Logitech G25 ($230) and the new G27($300). I read an article that talked about some $900 wheel, but that is a little extreme. I'd rather buy one of those cockpit chairs instead.
