Industrialist Carl Ziktor's virtual alter-ego Grimlord worked on the creation of an army made of warrior robots. And, before he became missing for two years, Ryan Steel's father worked with Professor Hart to prevent Grimlord's efforts by developing the ultimate weapon using the most advanced technology man had ever seen to stop him. Now, with the help of his friends J.B. and Kaitlin, Ryan and his friends use the VR power to prevent Grimlord's army from crossing over into our reality from Virtual Reality--and ruling it. However, will Ryan ever find his father? Written by

The footage that appears on some of the Power Rangers tapes seems to have come from an unbroadcast pilot. Besides the CGI Professor Hart, it also included a scene where Jeb got shocked by some of the equipment in Hart's lab and gained his human-level intelligence. How Jeb became smart was never discussed in the series. See more »

This U.S./Japan hybrid would have succeeded had it not been for contrivances by the American production team. The Saban company attempted to distinguish it from the Power Rangers as much as possible, by having the heroes fights set in virtual cyberspace instead of reality.
The U.S. characters lacked the personality to draw kids/audiences in. The villain Grimlord is actually a white business man in the real world, but inanely chants "Forces of darkness, empower me, blah, blah, blah" to enter cyberspace. So silly. The fight footage is great, almost rivaling the footage of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. However, the fact that it occurs in "virtual reality" is downright stupid.
VR Troopers had entertainment value, but it made me cringe a lot.
