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.

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.

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: Book 2 expands and improves on its predecessor in every way. Whether it's the emotional attachment you develop with Quill, the surprising twists the story goes through, or the inventiveness of the combat and puzzles, Moss: Book 2 is creative in a way that delights at every turn. If you've got PSVR, it's pretty much essential.

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.

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.

With Moss: Book 2, Polyarc delivers a new tale very pleasant to follow in a universe still as enchanting, which can rely on its excellent dubbing and music to immerse us.

There are a few challenging boss fights in Moss: Book 2, as well as some difficult puzzles to solve. Although the game can be challenging at times, the difficulty is just enough to keep things interesting without causing any frustration. The puzzles and fights grow gradually harder at a rate that eases players into it. With more boss fights, different environments, and new weapons, Moss: Book 2 is a fantastic game, and it's a worthy follow-up to Polyarc's highly praised debut title..

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.

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.

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 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.

Seriously, how cute is Quill? Her adventure is quite the epic one though, and you should be ready for a strong emotional ride. By the way, the puzzles are perfectly integrated into the platform sections, and considering the lack of strong alternatives on PS VR right now, you should just thank Polyarc and give them your money.

‎The attractive proposal of the original remains intact in a game that does not innovate too much, but that continues to offer a magnificent experience of adventure and virtual reality.‎
