The brief Vader Immortal trilogy of VR experiences comes to a close with the third part of the story, which sees your unnamed smuggler – who’s discovered an interesting heritage in relation to the planet Mustafar – using all of their previously learned skills and training to put a stop to Vader’s nefarious plans once and for all.
High on action, with a particularly satisfying section which sees you facing off against plenty of Stormtroopers in an Imperial base, Episode III comes to a satisfying end, while leaving the door open for more adventures.
Though again the episode is brief – as with the first two, playing through the story is not likely to take more than an hour – it hits some great story beats and does also feature another Lightsaber Dojo, in which you can use your Jedi skills to earn commendations as you face off against waves of bad guys.
Though since surpassed in terms of interactivity, general visual fidelity and scope by the more recent Star Wars: Tales from Galaxy’s Edge, Vader Immortal as a whole works beautifully as a tightly controlled, linear narrative – and does well to impart the feeling of being involved in a pivotal, previously unseen, part of Star Wars history.
