Thumper is a rhythm game mixed with fast-paced action, setting itself apart from other titles in the genre. Your "character" is a vehicle that runs on rails in a track, with certain speedbump-like indicators on the road that show up in sequence. You have to press the button prompts in time with your vehicle driving over the indicators, ideally to the correct rhythm to the beat to rack up points. It can be tough going at full speed and catching all of the button prompts while staying in-sync with the song, but the payoff is incredibly satisfying. See More
Other than visual cues, the visceral feedback you get from timing your button presses just right helps keep you on-beat. Getting that timing down rewards you with an addicting rumble, helping you feel the rhythm in your hands. With your vehicle moving at such crazy speeds, pressing the right buttons on-beat simulates the feeling that you're really in the driver's seat, listening to the music playing at full volume all around you. Pressing the buttons correctly with feedback helps keep you glued to the game, motivating you to go after higher and higher scores. See More
Thumper can be too hard if you've never played a rhythm game before. Because everything moves at such high speeds right from the start, you may miss a lot of the button inputs and get discouraged. Even for experienced players, it takes some practice before getting used to the flow of gameplay. See More
Thumper looks stunning. The futuristic vibe with the flashing blues, purples, and reds everywhere. The road your vehicle travels on jets through a seemingly endless void that changes depending on the stage, such as showing off bosses that appear as large, abstract enemies looming overhead. The trippy visuals are pretty neat, making the game stand out more along with its unique gameplay. See More
Virtual Reality makes Thumper much more fun and intense. Along with the feeling of the controls putting you in the seat of the vehicle, you're actually put into the game itself, surrounded by the visuals. The lights, the music, and the rumbles all feel more up-close-and-personal, as if you're part of the environment itself. Thumper is compatible with VR on both PlayStation 4 and PC, so anyone with a headset for either platform will be able to try it out for themselves. See More
Robo Recall is incredible for new players. The opening sequence features a mini jump scare that will serve as a testament to what they're about to experience. The first level of the game will be absolutely mind blowing for the vast majority of players. See More
Many VR games give players an issue with motion sickness. If you haven't played long enough to acquire your "VR legs" then you can get nautious and dizzy relatively easily. Robo Recall circumvents that with movement via teleporting, which means you can play all day with no drawbacks. See More
There's a total of 4 weapons in Robo Recall: the pistol, the revolver, the shotgun, and the plasma rifle. Each weapon has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, which you can further amplify thanks to an (albeit small) assortment of attachments for each of them. The weapons look great and feel satisfying to use. The shotgun was particularly well executed, and is largely considered a favorite. See More
Robo Recall is an expertly executed game. You play as a "Recaller," trained in recalling malfunctioning products (namely, robots). You can do all sorts of fun things in the game, which range from blasting tons of robots into oblivion, to deflecting their shots with your weapons, and you can even pull their bullets right out of the air and throw them back. There are plenty of great things to explore; perhaps you want to tear a robot's arms off and use them as swords, or maybe you want to hold one hostage and use him as a shield. Robo Recall allows you to do all of these things, and much more. See More
