"Zork II: The Wizard of Frobozz continues the story from Zork I: The Great Underground Empire. Each game in the Zork trilogy is completely independent of each other, so you do not have to play the original game first in order to try this one. As with the previous title, this sequel is a pure text game—one which all true adventure gamers should play at least once." - Adventure Classic Gaming

Zork II contains the difficult Bank of Zork vault puzzle, in which the player must walk through (apparently) solid walls. In this puzzle, the player controls his destination depending on the direction from which he entered the room. The game also includes the "Oddly-Angled Room" puzzle, which relied upon the player being familiar with baseball. Infocom apologized for the American-centric puzzle in their official hints for the game. The Bank of Zork and Oddly-Angled Room puzzles have been called "infamously difficult.
