The movement scheme is by far the best in any VR game. Jumping, sliding, wall-running, back-flipping, ground-slamming, slow motion, trackpad or teleport locomotion...it's all there. And there are tons of settings so that you can tweak the movement to your exact liking. Add to that a bow, swords, pistols, shotgun, machine guns, many throwable weapons, and a deep relic system that adds many different abilities and modifications. This game should be held as the golden standard in VR development. And there's so much more coming! The fun never ends with this game. See More
No other VR game offers this much freedom in movement, it's truly amazing what you can do in this game. It's still Early Access and you should look forward to the constant stream of updates that come from this team. They are by far the most responsive development team in a VR game in dealing with bugs and taking people's feedback into account and implementing suggestions. If you got an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive and want a game that truly makes you feel badass this is the one to get. See More
This has been a major reason why I don't play ATT often. The US server has been unintentionally wiped by crashed twice as of writing this, which makes me not want to play. If this post is more than two months old, ignore this point, as it has probably been fixed by now. See More
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
