Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a short yet sweet horror game that mixes stealthy gameplay with an incredibly creepy story. There are plenty of twists and turns that won't leave you disappointed. You can happen upon some terrifying moments depending on how you play, which makes you want to see more. This is meant to be the first game in a trilogy, and with what I've seen here, I'm excited to learn more about this world.

A survival horror with strong adventure components that perfectly balances non-scripted AI with puzzles and a cohesive tale. [OpenCritic note: Mario Baccigalupi separately reviewed the PC (8.2) and PS4 (8.4) versions. His scores have been averaged.]

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a good survival horror based on classic games like Clock Tower, Rule of Rose and Hunting Ground. It tells a compelling story that is a bridge between the incipit and the next two chapters of the upcoming trilogy.

Overall, Remothered successfully combines stealth and survival horror but the one major drawback is the audio feedback when exploring the Felton residence.

Remothered is a brilliant game, with an old school gameplay and a misterious and engaging narrative background. An italian success, one of the best indie game of the genre of these years.

A great psychological story set inside a creepy mansion. It may not be perfect but Remothered: Tormented Fathers does just enough to keep your interest up until the very end.

An effective homage to Clock Tower that manages to create a similar sense of helplessness even if it doesn't improve on the formula in any notable way.

There are moments that fans of horror willl absolutely love and stick with you long after the game is finished. Unfortunately, this is severely hampered by repetitive and frustrating gameplay.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a horror game that has potential but lets too many small issues bring it down. Its story keeps you on your toes but only after wading through the sometimes murky gameplay.

Remothered generates just as much frustration as it does atmosphere, making it one of those games that you want to love but can't because it just keeps kicking you in the face.

In the first few hours, it might scare you, but when you get used to the gameplay and its tricks, you’ll find yourself experiencing some cheap horror elements that more often than not are merely stressful.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers has plenty of terrifying potential, but a convoluted story, repetitive gameplay, and questionable voice acting handicap its chances of being truly great.

The game's narrative is impossible to condense, and its delivery can be cryptic to the point of confusion. As the first part of a trilogy, Remothered: Tormented Fathers offers an intriguing, obscure tale smothered by its own mystery.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is wasted potential. This is supposed to be the start of a trilogy, and hopefully the designers will learn from this mulligan and make something that has a bit more polish next time. Chris Darril's heart is in the right place, and he is proven to be a very capable game designer - the next effort just needs to be more carefully thought out and play-tested.
