Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Story - Episode 1 is mechanically simple, but it does a fine job of letting you bask in Star Wars surroundings and the impressive presence of Darth Vader himself.

Combat is a weak spot, but the story is engaging to the point that I didn't want this episode to end

Despite just offering a taste of what's to come with Vader Immortal, the first episode has me hooked and I want more. More opportunities to witness Mustafar's glory without the need to gain the high ground, more lore dumps, and more Vader being Vader.

It's hard to resist the dark side of the force... even if it's a short one. Vader Immortal Episode 1 last 45 minutes, and always leaves the feeling of being a collection of game mechanics used on other VR games (puzles, climb...). But the immersion and the atmosphere are so good that you probably won't mind.

The first episode of Vader Immortal shows all the potential of this VR series: a new way to immerse in the Star Wars universe, perfectly inserted in its narrative canons. The interactive experience is very short but the level of immersion is incredible, far beyond what a simple 360-degree VR movie could ever do.

Incredible graphics and sound help Vader Immortal overcome its short runtime and shallow story. Characters are likable and performances are stellar. The gameplay lacks depth but this isn't a problem thanks to the game's brief length. Those unhappy with how short the experience is can find extra gameplay in the lightsaber dojo. This is a must-buy for Oculus Quest owners.
