While Polyarc doesn’t get too wild and crazy with its second title, it didn't need to considering how solid the foundation was with Moss. Book II takes the time to tighten up a few lingering issues from the first title, while providing more of the incredible world of Moss, albeit on a grander scale. Moss: Book II is further proof that Polyarc is among the best developers working in the VR space.

Hardware limitations and frustrations aside, Moss: Book II is another resounding success for Polyarc, despite a few strange missteps in finnicky weapon switching and minor quality of life tweaks that could come as part of a future update. The collectibles provide ample reason to keep playing after you’ve finished the story, and the puzzle-based environments are just as beautiful to look at as they are a satisfying enigma to crack.

Moss: Book II is a natural continuation of Polyarc's debut chapter. The game world is larger, the opportunities for interaction have grown, and the deep connection you develop with Quill is more evident and sought after. New enemies, weapons and abilities make combat and puzzles more varied, interesting and engaging. The environments are richer and more surprising, inviting us to fully immerse ourselves in a fairytale world. But, just like the first time, it seems that the game stops just when it could have given us so much more. The controls can be a little cumbersome at times and unfortunately expose PSVR's shortcomings, but Moss Book 2 is still one of the best experiences you can have on PlayStation.

Moss: Book 2 builds upon its predecessor nicely with a captivating world and entertaining platforming, let down primarily by the PSVR's aging tech.

Moss: Book II is everything I look for in a game presented in an astounding VR package. While some aspects of the game feel held back by the current hardware of PSVR the journey and world make up for any shortcomings. I truly loved my time with Moss: Book II and cannot wait to see what is next for Quill.

The campaign in Moss: Book II will take you somewhere around four to six hours to complete. To achieve the Platinum Trophy, you are going to be on the six-hour side. With that said, the Platinum Trophy is not very hard to obtain and does not require more than one playthrough. For players on other VR platforms, make sure you check out the first Moss game in preparation for a potential Moss: Book II release. Polyarc plans to release Moss II on more VR platforms on an undetermined date. For PSVR players, this may be the only significant title to release in 2022. Moss: Book II is absolutely worth dusting off that old headset for. As it is a technical evolution of classic PS1-era platforming games designed for VR. The level design, combat, and puzzles make Moss II a top-tier VR platforming title in 2022.

Moss was PSVR’s standout title and therefore it’s fitting that Book II is the platform’s swan song. Even on old tech, Polyarc manages to forge an adventure for the ages. From the art direction to the emotional storytelling, each aspect of the original has been improved, making this a truly remarkable sequel.

A very recommended game. The gameplay is very well implemented as well as the difficulty which is really polished. The characters that appear on the scene will also exude their own life and personality, making us empathize with them. And, as a final touch, the graphic and sound aspects are excellent.

Moss: Book II, the second part of Quill's journey is a much more complete and engaging experience. Building on the experience accumulated with the first chapter, Polyarc has built a sequel with ingenious puzzles and clashes with enemies that, although not particularly difficult , manage to maintain tension thanks to the variety of high interactions possible between the player, the environment, the enemies and the protagonist.

Moss: Book 2 is without a doubt a game that deserves to be played, especially if you fell in love with the original. Its staggering beauty is reason enough to dust off your PSVR for one last adventure before the PSVR 2 comes out, even if I wouldn’t blame you for holding out in the hope of a PC VR or Quest release - or some kind of bundle for the launch PSVR 2.
