    It's easy to scoff at the idea of VR making any appreciable difference in a VR game, but you would be wrong to do so. Moss, a combination platformer/audio book, is exactly that, and it is very, very well done. If asked if I would have enjoyed it as much flat, I have to say that I wouldn't have. The VR aspects are subtle, but still make large contributions to the overall game play. It appears to be a small kid's game at first, but the difficulty does ramp up to a fairly challenging level.

    Who’d have thought this under-hyped mouse tale would be one of the best VR games around? Moss is brilliant and inventive in the way it applies VR to the 3D platform adventure, crafting something strange and magical out of familiar ingredients. It’s short, but beautifully-paced and utterly charming. Whatever VR platform you’re packing, you ought to play it.

    Though more action-oriented than adventure gamers might be used to, Moss is that rare game that delivers exactly what it promised, delivering a lovely bonding experience with an adorable companion while solving puzzles and having a great time exploring a magical fairy tale kingdom.

    It’s an utterly charming experience whose only fault is that you’re always left wanting more.

    The cute design choices and creative puzzles make this an enchanting adventure. It could have been even better with a more decent fighting system.

    This game is easily worth $100 - but luckily we get the best games on the entire planet for next to nothing! Moss may already be on my top 3This game is easily worth $100 - but luckily we get the best games on the entire planet for next to nothing! Moss may already be on my top 3 of best games ever made (at least within it's genre). You control a mouse in 3rd person and you're in the gameworld in 1st person. Graphics are simply breathtakingly awesome, and although gameplay does remind you of Kin and possibly Chronos, Moss bows to no one. If you have a Rift headset, Moss is the game to get - when you're done with Lone Echo :-) Moss works perfectly forcing super-sampling 2.0 using an oc'ed GTX 1080. Moss is played sitting down, but do stand up now and then to check you're not missing any secrets. Note, by default graphics are set to low when starting the game for the first time, remember to set graphics to high. The game isn't that taxing on current hardware, I wouldn't be surprised if GTX 1060 6GB owners can enable super-sampling 1.5 with high graphics setting and no frame dropping. This is probably the best VR game arriving in 2018 - and don't rush it, take your time to enjoy the world and find all the secrets, then this game may take 6 to 8 hours to complete. Expand

Fantastic immersion and a really clever implementation of the VR controls and your interaction with the environment (I'm sure more VR games will use this style in the future). You play as two characters at once, a mouse (3rd person) and kind of a spirit-being (1st person) who is able to interact here and there in the environment and help along the way.

    I didn't realise the graphics were set on low til someway through, so it should work alright with lower end hardware. First time I could stay in VR without feeling any sickness. Great story and immersion - must have.

It is one of the the very few VR games that look and feel like AAA products. Every location is a piece of art and a blast to traverse through.
    The gameplay takes a backseat though. Platforming, combat, puzzles - everything is casual and fine, but not great.

    Overall, Moss is a must-play not only for platformer fans, but for everyone who owns VR-headset.

    Si vous aimez lorsqu'on vous raconte un conte, la narration et le ton si particulier à ce genre, et cet univers magique, vous allez adorer ceSi vous aimez lorsqu'on vous raconte un conte, la narration et le ton si particulier à ce genre, et cet univers magique, vous allez adorer ce jeu !
    Malgré son côté tout mignon et gentillet, Moss plaira aussi aux adultes.

    La narration façon conte est une réussite totale, qui plus est le jeu est localisé en FR (voix + textes + menus), et la voix FR est PARFAITE dans sa façon de narrer l'aventure de cette petite souris.

    La VR est parfaite pour ceux qui sont un peu sensibles, on endosse le rôle d'un lecteur qui regarde l'histoire d'un point de vue subjectif et fixe : ça ne bouge pas, et pour autant on profite de la profondeur de la réalité virtuelle. Les graphismes sont superbes, le jeu n'est pas trop gourmand et peut tourner en "Haut" sans problème.

    Seul bémol, l'aspect répétitif. Le jeu est long, mais la découpe des tableaux et la redondance de "un tableau = une énigme, ou peut-être des combats, puis on passe au suivant". C'est un petit bémol, le jeu reste excellent, se trouve à prix raisonnable.

    Clairement, si vous êtes équipés VR, il faut l'essayer. Je n'ai pas d'enfant, mais je suppose qu'il plairait à toute la famille. Pour faire découvrir la VR, c'est très soft et immersif : l'idéal.
    La prise en main sera difficile pour des novices des jeux vidéos, car le déplacement sur les trois axes en VR est plus difficile que sur des jeux classiques. Pour autant, le personnage se dirige sans encombres, et cette "difficulté" est gratifiante dans les phases de plate forme.

    One of the best experiences on the VR. Puzzle platformer that doesn't make you nauseous. Decent puzzles. I was able to figure out everythingOne of the best experiences on the VR. Puzzle platformer that doesn't make you nauseous. Decent puzzles. I was able to figure out everything without using any hints.

    - The world is pretty beautiful and immersive!
    - Most of the fights were quite simple. Except for the boss battles which were annoying AF because they had uncontrolled difficulty spikes.
    - The character animations are very cute and fun.
    - Some of the fights are over fast paced.
    - Upgrades are too few. 3 swords. 3 armor.
    - There were some kind of scrolls that I was collecting throughout the game which made no sense.
    - Breaking boxes / barrels also made no sense.

    Players health needs to be more than 2 points. I would say health of 4 points to make me give a 10 star to this game.

    Overall I loved the whole experience (minus the frustrating boss battles / mass-kill battles).
