I have been meaning to pick this game up for a while as I have always thought it looked interesting but for some reason never have ... until now.
I have been recently hunting for demos and games that work with the Oculus Rift DK2 and when I noticed this had added beta support for it , well it made up my mind for me and hit the buy button straight away.

I have no idea what its like to play on a normal flat display , but my god ... playing it with the Oculus rift , its an outstanding experience.
It lends itself perfectly to a seated VR experience and the game does a fantastic job making you feel like your sitting in and piloting a huge moon lander.
Hell I even had butterflies in my stomache ( the kinda feeling you get on a rollercoaster ) when my lander ran out of fuel and started spiralling to the ground.

I guess you could say the game as a whole is a little repetative but it still gets a big thumbs up from me as far as a great VR experience with the Oculus is concerned.
Well worth the tiny price tag however you get to play it.

DK2 beta works fantastic with Windows 10, DK2, amd a8, and ati 6870! New OS, mid-range cpu, and several generations old graphics card. No issues what-so-ever! This is easily one of my favorte VR games now!! Thanks @SH0V0R, looking forward to more updates and hopefully future releases from you!

Some tips for new people:
- DK2 Beta is accessed via, right clicking on the game title in your library->properties->beta tab->dk2 beta->OK.
- While it should work either way, having the oculus as primary monitor plays best and requires no tinkering in-game.
- If you are seeing a half screen\half desktop, try pressing alt+enter to snap to full screen or see the tip above. (this is windows and oculus, NOT this game specifically)
- If controls are somewhat or entirely not working, try removing InputData.dat from C:\Users\"yourname"\Documents\Saved Games\\LunarFlight\. It will regenerate on your next game launch and should fix all control issues.

While this game was not initially released as a VR game, the cockpit was entirely redesigned for the Rift with large and easy to read indicators that may not look super realistic but help provide a very comfortable VR experience.

The initial contact was a bit frustrating but once I figured out how I was supposed to fly this thing, it was rather easy. Unfortunately there are only 3 types of missions (+ a time trial mode) so after a while it becomes a bit repetitive.

Overall a very cool lunar lander simulator that I recommend to Oculus Rift owners.
