Oculus Rift review

 

Oculus Rift is even better than before thanks to Touch

Snug fit ; Best VR games ; Growing list of movies and apps

Can cause nausea ; Minimum PC requirements

Oculus Rift isn't the all-encompassing "future of entertainment," but we're optimistic that it might earn that title in the coming weeks, months and years.
