    "This game didn't solve my problems finding fun space combat games that can run on the Vive or Rift systems. It has a number of bugs that have not been fixed despite being long-running - it needs better developer support. Even worse, many parts of the game feel like they are "pay to win" - people can defeat others of superior skill just by paying to augment their ships in certain ways."

    "This game let's you pilot a space-ship across the galaxy. You can choose your allies and fight enemies. "Supports Oculus Rift", which, I assume, means it doesn't support Vive."

    "Someday, off in the distant future, perhaps in the future that this game takes place in, Star Citizen will have VR support. Right now though the developers are taking their time to get around to it while working on other things instead, I mean it's a good game but don't buy it for VR."
