Moss: Book II Reviews
Moss: Book II is a fun, cute adventure that makes use of the Quest 2's impressive hardware while remaining family-friendly and casual enough for younger audiences.
A great sequel taking the series in a more vivid direction, it is well worth pushing past the timidness of the early game.
Book II might not boast the widest breadth of content nor insane mechanical complexity, but a rare few titles can dare to match its earnest warmth and overwhelming charm.
Moss Book II by Polyarc draws too much on familiar tropes to stand out, but further showcases some of VR's most creative levels masked with an immersive fantasy adventure Quest 2 players don't want to miss out on.
Moss: Book II is an outstanding sequel, improving on the great foundations of the first game making it one of PSVR's must-play titles, even in 2022.
Although PS VR feels like it didn't age so well, Moss: Book II improves what the beloved original game did and is one of the best game for this platform to date.

Moss: Book II builds on the revolutionary platform VR title that the original was, but ultimately keeps the game safe and grounded without letting it get out of hand.
Moss: Book II doesn't lose any momentum and directly continues the touching story from the first title. It expands gameplay in new and fun ways and immerses you in its fairy tale world quite effectively. While it's a fun and highly polished affair, it still plays it a bit safe in some regards, but that's easy to forget when the end product looks and plays this well. Much like its predecessor, Moss: Book II is a must-play title in VR.
Moss: Book II serves as a perfect sequel to the original, though it doesn't introduce as many new things as you might want.
Polyarc has managed to once again captivate us with their story about a tiny mouse with the courage of a lion. With new gameplay mechanics and wonderful environments, the game will make you sit up from your chair. Not only to appreciate all the details, but because of the limitations of PS VR hardware that make tracking movement very tricky.

Moss: Book II does an excellent job of building on the established formula of the first game while offering a much more diverse game world and a pitch-perfect blend of puzzles, platforming, and combat. However, it's still somewhat short and unsatisfyingly unchallenging.
An adventure that concludes and reveals itself as THE game that any VR gamer must have in their library. From Polyarc's heart that resonates with ours in a merry-go-round of emotions, to the very well crafted story, from the incredible level of animation to an interactivity that allows to create a precious player-personage link, from fresh mechanics to a new enriching characters. Dear reader, Moss and Moss: Book 2 are prescribed by Squared Potato to any VR headset owner.

After a very successful first book, we are more than happy to find our little mouse for a new adventure. Keeping the basics that made the first game a success, Moss: Book 2 takes us even further. We quickly see that Polyarc has made the most of PSVR and that it is undoubtedly one of the last good titles on the platform before its future iteration. I hope the studio will continu its great work during Sony's PSVR2 era, because they've proven once again that they're the best at it. It's an absolute must-have for any holder of the virtual reality headset. As long as you still have a PS4 controller if you play on PS5.

The greatest success of Moss: Book II is not that it advertises PlayStation VR or that it stands out as a VR experience, but that it hits the necessary quality levels to advertise the PlayStation brand in general.

Moss: Book II is a perfect lesson in the power and limitations of VR. As a technology, VR is still clunky, but clearly, its storytelling potential is only beginning to be realized. In terms of gameplay, Moss: Book II doesn’t always make the best of VR, but its unique perspective lets you form a genuine friendship with its loveable main character. In the end, my bond with Quill was far more satisfying than any flashy game mechanic.
In most cases, a game being “more of the same”, not being THAT different from its predecessor, would be considered a disappointment. In the case of Moss: Book II, however, being more of what made that 2018 game so special isn’t bad at all, since that title left us wanting more upon beating it. I liked it more than its predecessor not only because of the slightly better design, but also due to the improved controls, courtesy of the Quest’s hardware.
If you enjoyed Moss, then certainly get Moss: Book II – it’s a true sequel, sticking close but making improvements along the way. If you’ve not played Moss, go and play that, then come back and play Moss: Book II. Just try and play them on a platform with decent tracking.
Moss: Book 2 is the best we can get for PSVR. It fully uses its potential, and the game's story can keep children and adults alive on the screen. It offers an excellent level of dramatic fairy tale processing and draws players into the action.

Quill isn't done saving the world yet, and in this second installment, Quill is hunted by a winged tyrant named Tylan. The story may not immediately be called very strong, but there are certainly some improvements to be seen in how this game is put together. For example, some beautiful new areas have been added and there is also an update in weapons. All in all, it's a great game to play and we can only hope that we don't have to wait another four years for a sequel.

PSVR has seen some excellent titles over the years. Blood & Truth, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Superhot, Walking Dead Saints & Sinners and the first Moss title are just some of the games that spring to mind when discussing the best experiences on Sony’s headset and Moss Book II is another one to add to that conversation. A fitting swansong for PlayStation’s debut headset.
