I got bad at a certain Game scene, you should be prepared for that. All in all, it was a Experience and it totally flashed me. For all those who love space, a Must-Have!

Nice Spacewalk with beautiful Views. After 13 Minutes, however, it is also Over. Not many possibilities For Interaction are possible and depending on which Type of game you have chosen and therefore the Astronaut Mode can occur Motion Sickness. Then prefer to choose the Controller Mode.

Home-the Spacewalk. For me, disaster! While Trying to repair the ISS, I destroyed everything! Luckily, I was still able to save myself and get into ... A nice Experience where you're mostly outside the ISS and have a Space-ranked view of Mother Earth. The Type of Movement can lead to MS in VR newcomers, but you can hold on to the Rub well. The Hands do not reach exactly for the Handrails, but sink into them and a few more Possibilities for Interaction would also stand the Experience well. You can put things floating around Away but not grab them. All in all ok, because it is for nothing. But the BBC probably has enough Money to put a little more effort into it, right?

"Home-A ..." It was great for me that I was able to experience a Hint of "motion Sickness" for the first Time since I used VR Headsets (since the Beginning of 2013). I'm really grateful for That. I also expect such a feeling to pass through the Stomach in Space, as an inexperienced Astronaut. The immersion experienced Here, I rate the desehalb as very good. Otherwise, for example, in the Space Experience Game "Lone Echo" much better has been achieved: Graphics, sound, Movement + Interaction etc., this is of course not free to have. However, the free ISS Experience from Oculus Store has also been much better implemented. I think for "motion sickness" prone persons this "Game" is too violent, but that's why I liked it for that very reason. Points 6/10

Nice short Space Experience For which it is free, you can give it to yourself, but this VR Experience is not optimal. I was here eager to see the Earth from Space, but unfortunately this one was quite low from the Textures and a little Disappointment. Looking at The ISS was quite interesting. The biggest Problem Home has is the Controls and the forced Camera. When you pull out of the Hatch, the Camera automatically goes along like being on Rails, which in Astronaut Mode (I didn't try the Easymodus) can very quickly lead to Motion Sickness, so watch out. Also, the Hands don't feel right, as they don't reproduce 1zu1 the Position when you pull along the Relings. But as I said, for a Free Experience quite ok.
