This is a fun and challenging first-person action game and spaceship simulation rolled into one that Oculus Rift owners really need to add to their collection. As you'll soon find out, if you run out of NPC crew members, it's game over. This will happen a lot, and there's no way to adjust the difficulty level, but be aware that a running tally of achievements allows you to work toward unlocking powerful weapons and better ships, which helps you progress on each subsequent playthrough. What's more, starting over won't feel like déjà vu, because From Other Suns features a randomized universe, so no two games are the same. Also, captains that are having a bit of trouble in space can discover that they might live longer if they hop into multiplayer and choose some skilled teammates to battle alongside them. This is particularly important because combat is fast and frenetic, so if your aim isn't the best, you might want someone backing you up in battle.
While this little gem is well worth the price of admission ($39), there are a few small issues, like getting stuck in environmental objects, AI-based crew members that get mowed down too easily at times, and some inventory management challenges. Also, locations tend to seem flat and don't have the amount of detail and interactivity as those in other games (e.g., there are objects you can see but can't touch). But overall, From Other Suns is super fun -- especially with friends -- and highly recommended for teenage Oculus Rift owners.
