'''''Cyber Troopers Virtual-ON: FORCE''''' (2001), [[CodeName code-named]] [=VO4=], is the series' third installment debuting on the Sega Hikaru hardware. The action was slower than in ''Oratorio Tangram'' (although this was justified in the story that a reaction on the planet Mars made the non-native-built mecha move slower), but featured 2-on-2, allowing up to four-players simultaneously. The game is considered a [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks step back]] from ''Oratan'' and was not well-received. Not to mention there's also a much smaller variety of Virtuaroids to choose from. To compensate for this, they gave the Virtuaroids ''several'' different variants, but only to make the game even more confusing and annoying. On December 21st, 2010, the game received an {{Xbox 360}} release like ''Oratorio Tangram'' did. However, it was released only in Japan as a retail game but the game is [[RegionCoding region-free]]. It includes a brand-new mission mode that's more-or-less ''Virtual-ON: MARZ''[='=]s campaign stripped of a storyline.

It was given a UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn release in 1996, which stripped down the visuals from the arcade version, but added a versus mode; and a Windows PC release followed later in 1997, which by default settings stripped down the frame-rate, but the settings can adjusted match the arcade version or better. The game later received an UpdatedRerelease for the {{PlayStation 2}} as part of the ''Sega Ages 2500'' line of re-releases (which unfortunately, [[NoExportForYou stayed in Japan]]) on October 30th, 2007. The [=PlayStation=] 2 version is considered the best release yet, as it contains several new features not present in the previous ports, as well as better graphics, crisper sound quality, new extra modes (including one where you can play as the final boss), and a new BonusBoss in the form of the original [[FemBot Fei]]-[[RobotGirl Yen]], which is permanently in [[SuperMode Hyper Mode]] without the health loss and can only be accessed if you beat the first eight Virtuaroids (nine if you fought Jaguarandi) in under nine minutes.

It can still be found in many arcades today, so they might still need our help. What are you waiting for? Get cracking! Your future grandchildren are depending on you! But if finding an arcade machine is too hard, or the Saturn and [=PlayStation=] 2 versions are too expensive, Sega has re-released the game as part of the SEGA Model 2 Collection for Xbox 360 and [=PlayStation=] 3...[[NoExportForYou in Japan]]. [[FromBadToWorse With no plans for a worldwide release]].

'''''Cyber Troopers Virtual-ON: MARZ''''' (2003) for the [=PlayStation=] 2, being an OddballInTheSeries, is essentially a single-player focused version of ''FORCE''. While including a HackAndSlash-style story mode which fleshes out the nature of the ''Virtual-ON'' universe, ''MARZ'' unfortunately stripped down the gameplay even further in several aspects (especially thanks to limitations of the [=PlayStation=] 2 hardware), causing fans of the earlier three entries in the series to [[FanonDiscontinuity completely disown this game]]. The series made a notable appearance in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha 3]]'', with JackOfAllStats Temjin (strangely piloted by the MissionControl character from ''MARZ''), RobotGirl Fei-Yen the Knight (piloted by the second MissionControl character from ''MARZ'' and the Fei-Yen series' supposed creator) and AceCustom Virtuaroid Apharmd the Hatter (piloted by the HotBlooded Sergeant Hatter) as playable characters. They also appear in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK'' for the NintendoDS, which actually incorporates ''MARZ''[='=]s story. ''Virtual-ON: MARZ'' has been re-released exclusively in Japan on [=PlayStation=] Network on March 2013.

'''''Cyber Troopers Virtual-ON: Oratorio Tangram''''' (1999) is the sequel to ''Operation Moongate'', which reveals that the whole mess on the Moon was just a distraction from a splinter group within a powerful [[MegaCorp mega-corporation]] to allow them to break away from their parent company. Now the two are fighting over several mecha plants in the hope of finding the missing Tangram, a super-computer that is said to have the power to [[RealityWarper alter reality]]. Strangely enough, ''Oratorio Tangram'' is very rare in many places; for example, some reports that only two arcade machines were ever shipped to the United States. It had a much wider release for the SegaDreamcast, and even without the twin sticks (even though they existed, [[RevenueEnhancingDevices but would burn a huge hole in your wallet]]) it is still a very fun game. ''[[{{Portmanteau}} Oratan]]'' is widely considered to be the best of the series and by far the most popular. It also added more depth into the previous game's mechanics, better gameplay balance, and a slew of new Virtuaroids to chose from.
