With a metallic shriek your fighter zooms through the launch tunnel and soars into the inky blackness of space. You tilt your head and quickly take stock of the situation: enormous carrier ships drift slowly below and on your right -- are those enemy fighters? Lasers rake across your shields and you jam the stick hard, veering away from enemy fire. You line up a fighter in your sights and your autocannons chatter as tracers streak through the void, turning the enemy into a blossoming fireball.
When the battle is over you take off the Oculus Rift headset and give yourself a few seconds to get reacquainted with reality. It almost feels strange to look around and see the familiar confines of your living room instead of the tight, futuristic structure of the fighter's cockpit. Playing the virtual reality space combat game felt so real you almost forgot you were sitting in a chair at home. In fact, it felt so immersive you can't wait to jump back in. With a grin you slip the Rift headset on and leap back into the heat of battle.

- WOW! This is amazing!by Kooltone

I absolutely love the Rift! I loved VR since purchasing the PS4 VR system when it came out and the Rift improves on everything. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Better movement tracking, lighter & more comfortable, awesome touch controllers and works in all light conditions. The setup was simple and the Oculus app has all you need to tweak and make the system your own. Within 20 minutes I was up and running...literally! If you have a computer with specs to run the Rift...what are you waiting for?!?

Now on my third computer (Acer Nitro 5) because they keep updating the software and excluding the older models. So from bestbuy I bought a brand new Acer Nitro 5 based on the Oculus.com website recommendations, took it home, ran the compatibility check and everything says its okay, so decide to keep it and put it under the tree. Give the computer to my kid xmas morning, and it doesn't work. Have to email tech support (no more phone, no more chat) and they tell me two days later that my laptop is one of the 6 acer nitro 5 models they dont support. Only two out of 8 they actually support. No where on their website or best buys website do they actually say that there are specific Nitro 5 builds that will only work with the oculus. Responded with my answers to their other questions and 4 days later, still no response form Oculus support. Save yourselves the money. I'm now returning the Acer Nitro 5, hopefully selling the oculus to some chump, and switching to the Vive. At the very least they have chat support.

They charge extra on their store for people using American Express to buy apps and games. I cannot recommend any of their products on this basis.

I highly recommend worth every cent and if u buy an oculus then i'd say that a game called Beat Saber is a must have.
- VR is now Rby MonsterGamer

Virtual Reality is now Reality. Oculus is arguably the best headset overall even at the time of writing this review, despite the fact that there are a couple of newer headsets out there with slightly higher resolution. 360 room-scale tracking works flawlessly. (You may need to buy a 3rd sensor for optimal results) The stock headphones are impressive and offer serious 3D sound. It sits comfortably with tons of adjustment options. Even after almost a year of owning it, 2D games can't keep my interest for very long because of how incredibly amazing and immersive the Rift is. I have an excellent gaming monitor and sometimes feel buyer's remorse for it because it mostly serves as a basic monitor for emails and surfing. And the touch controls? THE best by far - period.

I puchased this directly from oculus. It was on sale and came with 2 sensors and 2 controllers. I mainly fly combat simulator and have used track ir in the past. The feeling of being in the aircraft is amazing. You can look arround like you where there. 3d in theatre doesnt even compare. Judging that something is a few inches away, several feet or hundreds of feet away makes this experience amazing as everything looks and feels true scale! If your pc meets the specs GO and get one!

- Oculus Riftby Rob
from Kelowna, BC on March 18, 2018
I have been gamer for 30 year. Originally starting out on a 266sx computer and being a witness to all the largest steps in gaming history from Doom to 4k gaming. Having just purchased and tried the Oculus Rift I can tell you that VR gaming will be the future of gaming to come. The rift is by no means perfect and requires some serious hardware power to run optimally, but I am as excited now as I ever was for the future of gaming. Graphics are no where near what true 1080P or higher screen resolutions can offer, but the immersion and interaction aspect of the games has no compare if your viewing from a conventional computer screen. It is mind blowing how VR has the ability to drop you into a completely different environment right in your own living room. Had the graphics been better I would have given it a 5 out of 5. The ability to transport you to another world and believe you are there? 10/10

- Great!by Greg

Bought this while it was on sale around Black Friday and used the savings to buy another 2 sensors. Then bought the better headphones and a vr cover and wow. Full room scale, comfortable, sounds great, looks great (can't wait until higher resolution sets are here). Setting up 4 sensors on the wall with the cables needed for the headset was a lot, and was confusing but it is well worth it, and there are many videos that can help show u da wae.
