Oculus Rift


Oculus Rift: The consumer Oculus Rift headset seriously impresses, even though it isn't perfect

Incredible, new experience ; Light and robust ; Simple setup ; Strong launch lineup

Images could be sharper ; VR sickness an issue with some games ; No motion controls

VR is still a very young platform, and no headset has managed to so far get it 100% right. The lack of interesting games, despite an impressive increase in numbers, makes the platform feel underdeveloped as a whole.

Vive-style 3D controls, with easier setup, at a slightly lower price? Now we're talking…

Plenty of games ; Now has motion controllers ; Cheaper and simpler to setup than Vive

Oculus Rift review: Affordable entry into high-end VR


The Oculus Rift is the reason why Facebook bought the VR hardware company. And it's easy to see why: gaming geeks will adore it; 'normal' people will

An amazing portal into all-new worlds ; Light and comfortable ; Easy to setup ; Compatible with Xbox One controller ; Impressive screen resolution and high refresh rate ; Headphones built-in ; Price drop since launch

Prone to screen burn if left near sunlight ; Requires a beefy PC ; Some games can make you feel nauseous ; Tracking setup may cause problems (depending on your layout)

Oculus Rift review


Virtual reality has arrived, courtesy of Oculus - you're really going to want a Rift

Excellent head tracking ; Plenty of content through Oculus store ; Don’t need lots of space to play

Motion controllers aren't arriving until later this year ; No focus on room-scale VR ; Pricey if you don't already own a £1000 PC

The first virtual reality headset is seriously impressive. Even without motion controllers, it’s like strapping the future to your face

Minecraft on Oculus Rift preview: VR heaven or just a load of old blocks?
