The time has come for Oculus owners to return once more to a galaxy far, far away. Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode II picks up right where the previous episode left off, with players discovering their previously unknown ties to a powerful Force user from the past. This episode cuts out some of the initial fluff of the first episode, assuming players are already familiar with many of the mechanics of the game. This makes for a substantially shorter episode, but the constant action makes up for a lot of it. Vader's also more of a presence in this episode than before, which makes sense for a game where he's the marquee character. Still, it's not very long before the obligatory cliffhanger moment leaves fans waiting for the release of Episode III.

While the story in Episode II might come up a little on the short side, that doesn't mean the game isn't still packed with a lot of fun, especially at its $10 price point. The new Lightsaber Dojo alone is well worth the price of admission. While the mode seemed like icing on the cake in the last episode, it's been expanded for this second outing, and the results are a blast. It's particularly fun to tap into your newly acquired Force talents to pull off wild moves such as tossing your lightsaber at foes like a neon boomerang of destruction. While the Vader-related storyline is what's likely to draw you in initially, it's hard to deny that it's the Lightsaber Dojo that'll keep you coming back for more as you unleash your inner Jedi ... or Sith.
