So, the first thing that has to be said about Detached is that motion sickness can be really strong with this game. It's not quite as bad as Adr1ft, but it could definitely affect quite a few people. You have to take care in not spinning wildly all over the place. There are brakes for your forward and rotational thrusters that you need to take advantage of. There's an arcade mode that might make the game easier to control, but the astronaut control mode delivers stronger feelings of realism. I'm blessed with pretty good VR sea legs, so the trade-off is worth it. However, I'd probably recommend buying on Steam to have that return option available to you. I know the tone of this review has been a bit negative with all the motion sickness caveats, but the feeling when you first leave the space station and enter the void of space, is absolutely breathtaking.
