As Darth Vader himself once said, "The circle is now complete." With the release of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode III comes the epic finale to the original virtual reality adventure, and the payoff is absolutely worth the wait. This is the biggest and most action-packed entry in the series, thanks in part to the assumption that players have already gotten familiar with the ways of the Force in the previous two games. Episode III hits the ground running and never looks back. Even more impressive is the fact that in spite of all the constant action, the game's story never gets lost or forgotten. In fact, some key emotional scenes even paint the Dark Lord in a surprisingly sympathetic light. At least, right up until you're squaring off with him, lightsaber to lightsaber. Then all bets are off.

Each episode of Vader Immortal has incrementally added layers to your combat skills. The first episode covered basic saber combat, while the second introduced Force powers into the mix. This time around, the game rounds out the toybox with blasters and thermal detonators. It's hard not to feel like a true Jedi warrior after deflecting some laser blasts back at a wave of Stormtroopers, using the Force to snatch away one of their pistols, then blasting them with their own weapons before tossing an explosive their way. You almost feel like you could take on the whole Empire by yourself, which thankfully for story purposes, you don't have to. Like previous episodes, the game is a bit on the short side, though the Lightsaber Dojo will still keep you coming back for more. Plus, that long teased and highly anticipated final confrontation with Darth Vader doesn't disappoint.
