    Fortunately, not even the rough patches could shake the shine off of the gift that Detached had given me. The likelihood that I will ever board a spaceship in real life decreases with each passing day as the responsibilities of adulthood tether me to the ground, but at least now I can load up Detached, put on my helmet, and dream my dreams again.

    Detached is a great spacewalking simulator, with gameplay that has obviously been built up around that mechanic. While some of the more gamey elements might not be up to snuff, you can’t argue with the feeling you get when you leave a ship and are floating freely in space. Expect to be mildly frustrated with the lack of direction and irritating checkpoints. But also expect to be awestruck by the superb visuals and setting. Detached is a mixed bag, but the spacewalks alone are worth the price of admission.

    Detached is the sort of game where you'll enjoy your short time with it if you aren't easily susceptible to motion sickness. The atmosphere is absolutely gorgeous, giving you a good sense of the beauty and loneliness of space. The puzzles aren't bad, but the lack of direction about where to go can be an annoyance when you have a constantly depleting oxygen meter to worry about and a finite amount of fuel. It may not be a VR showcase title for everyone, but those who can stomach it will enjoy their time.

    For all its cool factor and pitch perfect virtual reality immersion, the lack of any substantial and compelling gameplay for most of the game make Detached hard to recommend at its full price. Wait for a sale.

    It remains, after all, a pleasant and quite immersive space adventure, but the scepter of best VR title set in space still remains firmly in the hands of Lone Echo.

    Detached is a pretty decent VR game, but the game is too short and you get lost most of the time.

    It is ironic that a game with a truly unique game playing mechanic was deposited into such a generic game, and called Detached. That’s what the end result feels like.

    Ever wanted to experience the weightlessness of space - first hand (your choice of realistic simulation or sensation equivalence) thanEver wanted to experience the weightlessness of space - first hand (your choice of realistic simulation or sensation equivalence) than Detached will take you there!

    From the learning phase training session (played several times) to space immersion, this is truly an amazing experience.

    Not for the faint of heart or stomach...but training will get you through it. Wow!
