I have to say I found the 'Walkabout' navigation rather unintuitive
compared to a traditional immersive VR. I suspect that part of the problem
lies with the fact that you're always facing in the same direction, ie
when you click to move 'behind you' you don't turn around, but end up
walking backwards. It also took me a while to work out that clicking on
the 'NW' or 'NE' buttons doesn't actually move you in that direction, but
just reorientates you.
