Microsoft Flight Simulator VR

Legendary civil aviation simulator got a VR support at last. But without a high-end rig you won't fly even if you're a pilot :(

Strong sides:

  • Incredible detailing and super-realism
  • Best of publicly released civil aviation simulators ever, with incredible level of of conformity
  • Supports almost any type of controllers and hardware
  • Extremely detailed satellite maps (with weather and jams in real time) without need to store them on your computer

Weak sides:

  • You need a powerful rig. Even Nvidia RTX 3080 can't handle it
  • Lack of Touch controller support (promised to be added in a future)
  • High threshold entry

Summary and conclusion:

This is probably the most high-quality and spectacular flight simulator, but the technical requirements are too high for the game. However, the developer studio reported that they work on game optimization and they achieved good results in this direction.
Microsoft Flight Simulator VR

Rating: 4 from 5 - recommended, but...
with some limitations

Game is available on:

PC VR (STEAM)PC VR (Microsoft Store)
Tested on:
Ryzen 5900x, RTX 3080, 32GB RAM, Quest 2 (+link)

Game performance:
Game is using OpenXR (which is native for Oculus Devices) but the game is still VERY demanding on computer's specs. You can launch it on middle-end PC, but even on GTX3080 frame rate would be below 20-30 fps, which is extremely uncomfortable for VR.

Echo VR: resurrected legend

A technical and mental masterpiece for coop-multiplayer challenges between real people around the world. High entry threshold but mind-blowing fun for those few, who learn to play


Cute first-person platformer with funny character, elastic-like physics and vivid words and challenging parkour puzzles
