Thanks OP. I received an Oculus Quest 2 as gift and am looking for a nice shooting game, but the problem is I can have motion sickness very easily. Would you still recommend this game or is there any other better options out there on the market?

If you use the walk, rather than the teleport to move around the map, you will notice the motion sickness a lot more. It's a fun party game to play though.

after playing this on Q2 I would say this is just decent but I would have gotten Walking Dead SS instead or recently Death Horizon (they just released a new update with melee and new zombie animations).
The former is slightly more but a better quality game overall, the latter is priced lower but they keep adding new features.

I've noticed that snap turning helps avoid sickness as well. I tried to play TWD: Saints and Sinners with walking plus smooth look and almost tossed my cookies. Switching to snap turning made it bearable.

Thanks I'll try that.

Why buy from Oculus directly? It's almost always cheaper to buy on Steam and use SteamVR with Oculus. It's easier to share your game library with friends using Steam. You're not locked into Oculus if someone makes a better headset. It's not connected to Facebook. After Oculus removed Marvel Powers United I've decided to avoid them like the plague. I generally find SteamVR to be more stable than Oculus.

Arizona Sunshine goes on sale for ~$15 on Steam during their sales.

FYI, Fanatical just launched a VR Bundle (2 for $11.40, 4 for $21.55, or 6 for $29.15) with some good stuff mostly on Steam, pair of Oculus:

FYI, most of the people get used to the motion sickness and no longer feels it after playing it a couple of times. When I started I couldn't play more than 10min. when I feel discomfort then stop take a break then replay and eventually my body got use to it. No more motion sickness for hours of gameplay nowadays. It took me about a week to get use to it.

There are some advantages in buying this version over the Steam version. This is the Quest native version and does not require a powerful GPU which some people may not have and provides the lowest latency. You can bring it with you anywhere without being tethered to your PC. And you can spin around freely without worrying about tripping or pulling on a cable. Yes you can use Virtual Desktop for a wireless connection with the steam version but you'll need to be in close proximity to your router and your network setup needs to good enough for stutterless streaming with low latency.

Agreed for the Rift/Rift S, but with the Quest/Quest 2, running native on the device has advantages. Virtual Desktop and Quest Link work well, but it still requires a good gaming PC that is tied up while using the headset, good WiFi, and some games have technical issues that make them unplayable. It’s also really hard on battery life, and generally more reliable running things on device.

I stream from my PC when I can but if something has a native Quest version, unless I already own it on PC I usually pick up the native version.
