All in all, there’s enough happening in Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! that can keep you entertained for a long time. If you’re looking for a challenge, you can try filling out all the Bingo cards, beating your own high scores, and playing with friends and strangers online. There are fun rewards and lots of familiar songs that make this game feel nostalgic yet new at the same time.
There’s also something satisfying about hearing the sounds of drums playing along side the many musical tracks. Taiko is one of the greatest rhythm titles to ever exist, and although playing on a controller doesn’t quite replicate the true drumming feeling, Taiko No Tatsujin: Drum Session! is a masterful rhythm title that will hopefully continue to reach all fans for years to come.
Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session achieves its goal of being incredibly simplistic but wonderfully addictive. Painted in fun and adorable visuals and peppered with unique tunes, it's a worthy addition to the canon of enjoyable rhythm-action titles. But heed should be paid to the potential cost of picking up a drum peripheral or two, as without all the manic arm-waving and ground-shaking, Drum Session may prove a harder sell for many wannabe tub-thumpers.
