If you need some escapism from COVID-19 Earth, then Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is your elixir to freedom and is truly a fun and immersive experience on the PSVR, albeit a little repetitive at times but it's the only place to feel like a Jedi Boss!

Vader Immortal: The Star Wars VR Series is a must-have title for every fan of the Star Wars saga who seeks a great experience related to the franchise universe. Unfortunately, as a game based on the value of your campaign, it is a very short title that makes poor use of its mechanics, lacking a challenge and better ways to work on its concepts. Fortunately, its dojo is quite entertaining and will certainly yield hours of fun for those who wish to face its challenges.

An inferior experience to PC and Oculus, not in terms of graphics but the frustrating PlayStation Move controllers that make wielding a lightsaber more a pain than a pleasure.

For a short time we feel like a true Jedi, with immersive lightsaber combat mechanics, use of the Force and great locations and characters. But Vader Immortal ends too soon, more like an experience than a complete game.

A small story that serves well to introduce new users to the world of virtual reality, but the experience of Vader Immortal is unfortunately very limited and gives very little reason for a new game, after having reached the end credits.

Vader Immortal: a Star Wars VR Series is practically a video game amusement park attraction, and I mean that in terms of lenght as well. But it's still an enjoyable experience that will delight every fan of Lucas' opera omnia for a couple of hours.

Being able to wield a lightsaber and deflect laser blasts, or pull a Stormtrooper up close to skewer them, carries an appropriate amount of weight, and there are many moments where the trappings of VR fade away, and you feel completely integrated into the Star Wars universe. These transcendent moments are many, and when this experience is firing on all cylinders, it’s truly special.

A scripted experience that will certainly appeal to die-hard fans of the Star Wars saga, but less so to others as many PS VR games have done much better before it.

Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is a good starting point to explore that galaxy far, far away through virtual reality. However, the main value lies in the presentation and the value of the source material, rather than the game itself.

Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series was a great experience for a Star Wars fan like myself but you should know what you’re getting into beforehand. This isn’t a very long experience so whether the price right now is worth it to you will be up to you to decide. If you have the choice to play it on PlayStation VR or Oculus I’d have to recommend to go with the Oculus due to there being no smooth movement on PlayStation VR. It doesn’t ruin the experience but it doesn’t feel as immersive when you have to teleport around. With all that said, the few hours I spent with this game is the closest I’ve ever come to feeling like an actual Jedi and that to me made this whole experience worth it.
