Remothered: Broken Porcelain Reviews
Remothered: Broken Porcelain is a disappointing survival horror sequel with major performance issues.
If the game is patched extensively, there are hints of an interesting enough story to make it worth a playthrough. However, at launch, the amount of game-breaking bugs present makes Broken Porcelain practically unplayable. It’s only because I had the duty to review it that I got as far in as I did, and I doubt the typical gamer will have the patience to get past the first hour.
Remothered: Broken Porcelain is not quite the sequel I was expecting from Stormind Games. Whilst it continues the interesting saga of the Felton and Ashmann families, the game is still lacking in polish (even after updates have patched out the worst issues), and is relatively short and linear. This is worth a play for genre fans, but it doesn't stand out in the same way that its predecessor did. Not quite Broken anymore, but certainly in need of some repair, this Porcelain doesn't have that ring of quality I was hoping for.
We are really sad to confirm that such a promising project has sunk in a sea of bugs, control issues and unstable sound. If you REALLY love horror, maybe you should give it a chance, but be ready to get frustrated more often than not.

Simply put, Remothered: Broken Porcelain was released in an unfinished state. Over the past week, the developers have released a patch nearly every day. Though this is commendable, it begs the questions of why it was released in the first place with so many problems.
You can almost see the decent game Broken Porcelain could have been. At the moment of writing it is a buggy mess that's more frustrating than fun.

Overall, there just isn't much to say about Remothered: Broken Porcelain. Almost every aspect of the game disappoints, so you tend not to focus on any one thing while playing. The story was incredibly confusing, but everything else was pretty bad, too, so I didn't even care. It feels incomplete and not paid attention to.
I don’t blame Stormind Games for sensing that urgency, but it seems obvious now to me, and perhaps to the team, that a more polished Remothered: Broken Porcelain is a better proposition than the version we got, rushed to the store before it was ready. Remothered: Broken Porcelain doesn’t deserve to be your Halloween stream of 2020, but give the team some time and they may be able to piece it back together.
If only the team behind Remothered: Broken Porcelain spent more time working on crucial plot points, character motivation and gameplay mechanics, then we could have a rather good game on our hands. As of now Broken Porcelain is just full of game breaking bugs, some of which the devs are desperately trying to get rid of. If you're planning to buy Remothered: Broken Porcelain anyway, at least wait some time before the game will be fixed.

While I know there are fans of the series, and from what I can gather, Tormented Fathers was actually a decent time, Broken Porcelain feels off to me. Perhaps it needed a few more months of development time to work out the bugs and maybe have a better optimized stealth mechanic, but I don’t think we’ll ever know. There is some complexity to the story and some decent atmosphere, but it takes a lot to actually get into it. If you’re invested in the series, this is a maybe, but if you’re looking for a horror stealth game, there are others to just play much better.
Remothered: Broken Porcelain should have been a good game but instead ends up as one of the year's biggest disappointments. The great soundtrack and atmosphere can't save it from terribly broken enemy A.I., an overly complicated and confusing story, and the plethora of bugs and glitches that plague the title. This final release is here, but it feels like Broken Porcelain needed at least six more months of development time.
Remothered: Broken Porcelain is a textbook example of a bad horror sequel that mostly sticks to its predecessor's formula, without really understanding what made it work. Between a jumbled story, shortage of tension, annoying new mechanics, and a flagrant lack of polish, Broken Porcelain in a follow up only a mother could love.

Broken and buggy. Remothered: Broken Porcelain is marred with poor design decisions, a nigh-incomprehensible plot, and a lot of poor taste. In its current state it's barely playable, and it's really not worth the effort.
Remothered : Broken Porcelain is a seductive game, but with some poor execution and mechanics and a lot of bugs.

All in all, if you enjoyed the first Remothered then this one is worth picking up, but you might want to wait for a sale.
I genuinely wanted to love Broken Porcelain, but sadly the game's many, many issues hold it back from being a proper playable experience, let alone the quality game it could have been.
Broken Porcelain is good at telling a story, and creating a world filled with horror things. However, the handling feel of this sequel is not satisfactory enough.

Remothered: Broken Porcelain is a cat-and-mouse horror game with a love story sprinkled in. It looks and sounds great, but is rather short, and bugs can mar the experience.
Investing time in Remothered: Broken Porcelain makes about as much sense as its name.
