To start off - if you currently have an Oculus Rift, stop reading and purchase this game right now... It's ok, I'll wait for you to do it.
Done? Good, because this game currently has the best native support for VR available right now. A perfectly realized virtual cockpit with great functionality and UI suited for VR. The sense of immersion is quite spectacular, and the game itself is also very fun.
For those without a rift, the game is quite good as well. It places you on the moon (or mars) in control of a lander type craft, in which you perform missions for experience and cash, with which you can upgrade your lander's capabilities. The lander handles as a low gravity vehicle would handle, and with practise you can pull off some very impressive manouevers. The types of missions available range from surveying certain locations, searching for misplaced or lost cargo and transportation of cargoes.
There is a multiplayer component as well, though I have to attest i haven't really played much of this mode (was having way too much fun in the single player portion of the game)
Overall, I'd heartily recommend the game to anyone with a slight interest in space exploration - and if you have a Rift this is a must purchase.
