This adventure lives up to its impressive predecessor -- if not surpassing it -- in all departments. While the story may not blow you away, Moss: Book II is is more of an emotional tale, which makes up for it. It's also longer than the original Moss, at about 5 or 6 hours, plus there are secrets to look for to add to the replayability. Thankfully, the Legend of Zelda-inspired puzzles and platforming challenges are also tougher than the first game, both of which force you to think through how to complete the level. But it's not too difficult either, so you won't feel like tossing the VR headset off out of frustration. Boss battles also require you to apply tactics, plus Quill now can change out weapons. Each weapon feels unique during combat, as the attacks, combos, and speed changes for each item (and some enemies will only take damage from a specific weapon).

This gear can also be used to interact with the environment in different ways, which is key as the puzzles get tougher over time. (Pro tip: Without spoiling anything, you may see something to interact with that's far from Quill or requires some thought on how to reach the area, but as the "Reader" you may even be able to touch it yourself, so try that first!). From a production standpoint, Moss: Book II looks and sounds great, too, but some visuals could've been sharper. If you like adventure games, be sure to download Moss: Book II for a memorable ride. It's well worth the price of admission.
