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.‍

Moss: Book 2 continues Quill's story with even more satisfying puzzle-platforming action, but some issues hold it back from being exceptional.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

A great sequel taking the series in a more vivid direction, it is well worth pushing past the timidness of the early game.

Moss: Book 2 is a confident VR sequel that iterates on its predecessor just enough to make it feel new again.

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.

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.

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.

A delightful and hugely entertaining journey of puzzles, battles, and exploration that makes you feel a part of both its story and the living, breathing, miniaturised world of Moss.

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

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.

Everything is better in Moss: Book II, and Quill’s adventure makes for a fun time whether you are new to the series or returning for more, and it also makes the case that the PS VR 2 cannot come sooner.

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.

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 II serves as a perfect sequel to the original, though it doesn't introduce as many new things as you might want.
