DCS World or Digital Combat Simulator World is a fully felged combat simulator with more options than a human brain has cells. And for many people that's only a good thing.
Excitingly DCS also happens to work incredibly well with the Oculus rift DK2. It certainly seems flying and driving games are a perfect fit for VR as you really get to feel a good sense of speed, hight and really feel as if you are inside of the simulated vehicles.
As I'm a total DCS noob I jumped into one of the free planes the TF-51D with it already in flight to see what it felt like and was in for an awesome ride !
I did have some issues with the menus in game not working with the mouse and I was also unable to operate cockpit buttons with the mouse maybe with some tinkering this will not be an issue and after-all its still early days for the Oculus rift.
All in all as more of a casual flight sim user that just likes the basic nature of flight and is not massively into the details other than in a museum curiosity sense DCS with the rift was utterly mind blowing.
I can not wait to try more planes and helicopters out in DCS as well as in other simulators like Xplane 10.
DCS is a truly unforgettable experience with the DK2 and as its free to download and comes with two planes I highly recommend it, even if you don't like flight simulators.
