Moving Out 2 is your typical sequel — a bit bigger, a bit better, but ultimately quite familiar. Taking the act of moving belongings in and out of buildings and turning that into a chaotic co-op game, this is largely the same as the original Moving Out, but mixes things up in some fun ways.
The gameplay is super approachable with easy controls. You pick up highlighted objects in a level and, in most cases, need to place them into the removal truck. Playing alone or with up to three others locally or online, some coordination is required with larger items, especially when gimmicks like one-way doors and spinning floors come into play. Some frustration can come from the physics, with players and items getting stuck, though it all just adds to the madness.
While removing objects is the focus, many stages switch up your objective. In some, you'll be moving things in, while others will have you putting runaway animals in their respective pens. The suburbia of Packmore quickly gives way to various alternate dimensions, each with its own levels that feature varied new obstacles and features. Some of these can be a little unclear at first — you may wonder how something works or how to progress — but these instances are rare. You'll be barging down walls, vacuuming up clouds, and chucking things onto moving trains to earn stars. Stars level you up, which unlocks more stages to play, and hidden items unlock new outfits and even bonus levels.
It's easygoing and can be very entertaining with friends and family. Despite good variety in the levels, though, the fundamental gameplay is much the same throughout, meaning it can get a little repetitive after a while. Playing in short bursts, though, it's a solid good time for players of all skill levels.
Accessibility is a big focus here, ensuring pretty much anyone can enjoy the game. There's a great suite of settings you can tweak on a per-player basis, and an assist mode lets you alter the difficulty in various ways.
If you're after more Overcooked-like co-op fun, Moving Out 2 is a great option. Its colourful presentation, cheeky humour, and increasingly madcap levels combine for a successful follow-up.
