It works amazingly well. The only problem I have noticed so far is that when you use terminals etc, the position of the animation is dependent on the gyro, which means the awful gyro drift in 1.2.97 kind of spoils it. When I was playing yesterday I had to guess the location of buttons on a computer because Riplay was facing 180 degrees away from the terminal.
Can we have manual gyro config back please @xunshu
The computer screens are also too close but Nibre is working on that. So far though, it is definitely worth it. I just got to the part when the Alien turns up for the first time, and immediately turned the game off. I have completed it twice already but still it is still too scary in VR.
Ok, so a temporary fix for the gyro drift (in this game and any other, presumably) is to sit in a swivel chair and align your body with the center. I can't believe I never thought of that before. It isn't perfect but it is better than having Ripley's body face 90 degrees away from you.
