The sound is fantastic but you never really feel enveloped by the music, which I was hoping for in a rhythm game. Also, the game never changes, it just gets much, much faster. In VR, it can get a little disorienting, and that definitely limits play time. Still, Thumper will leave an impression on everyone who tries it, good or bad. It does what it tries to do extremely well, and nothing more. And that, honestly, isn’t a bad thing.

Thumper thrives due to the way it marries speed, simple controls, and mesmerizing atmosphere. It's far more convincing in VR, where you're enveloped in the game's space and free of distractions from the outside world, but it shouldn't be ignored by those without the appropriate hardware. Thumper, no matter how you play it, is too good to miss.

The visuals are still sparse and abstract, but it adds a sense of being present for it all. That sensation comes through whether you're looking at the trough behind you or seeing the fragments of your dead bug scatter all around you. It’s definitely not worth buying the hardware for on its own – and I can’t enthusiastically recommend Thumper regardless – but it’s worth experiencing for a while at least.
