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.

I think that at the end of the day, there is a good game here, but it’s running poorly and could be better experienced somewhere else.

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.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a nice old-school survival horror game that does an excellent job at building tension and atmosphere.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a quite successful "Hide-and-Seek" horror game. The atmosphere is harmonious and the story is sweeping. Some people might find the constant running and hiding annoying, but once you have mastered it, you will be rewarded with an interesting story.

A good horror game, especially for all of us who love to suffer while they besiege, harass, persecute, threaten and hunt us down. If Nemesis or Mister X seem like a nuisance, wait until you meet the Red Nun.

After his success on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Stormind Games has moved his work to the Nintendo console. Remothered: Tormented Fathers offers us an experience that can delight any terror lover. With mechanics similar to Clock Tower or Haunting Ground, our stay at the Felton mansion keeps us in suspense until the last moment thanks to his intricate history, the need to find a chink of peace and his overwhelming atmosphere. A safe bet for any follower of the genre.

Although it doesn’t have much replay value, I would definitely love to try it on another platform to live what I think would’ve been the true Remothered Experience.

This was a difficult review to write. I enjoyed creeping through the Felton mansion and the stalker mechanic is seldom seen and quite refreshing. The mansion itself is atmospheric and interesting, even if it cribs heavily from the first Resident Evil. The game feels like the work of an auteur with a singular vision, to its benefit and detriment. Unfortunately during my playthrough, I experienced multiple bugs which broke THREE of the handful of scripted stalker encounters and led to my losing an auto-save point. Re-Mothered: Tormented Fathers lacks polish and should have been play-tested more extensively. Frankly, I am frustrated with games being brought over to the Switch in this state. It’s not fair on unknowing consumers who might not know that the game they are buying is not release-ready, and Nintendo currently does not give refunds to unsatisfied customers. The game has achieved a decent Metacritic on other platforms so one can only assume that the Switch version was not given the care and attention it needed. Maybe at some point in the future, it will be more playable but as it stands I have no choice but to award Re-Mothered: Tormented Fathers our not-at-all coveted broken medal.

The graphics on the Switch version are annoying enough to pass on this port; I strongly recommend this game for the PC.

Without a doubt, the strongest point of the Remothered: Tormented Fathers is its story – the cutscenes and voice acting are superb and would make a very interesting movie. The tension is sometimes unbearable and can lead to unscripted jumpscares as you thought your stalker was somewhere else when they’re actually right behind you. If you’ve seen the movie ‘It Follows’, this game is basically that. The puzzles are simple but fun and the notes are very engaging if you have time to find and read them all.

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.

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.

WORTH CONSIDERING - Remothered: Tormented Fathers tries hard to be a mix of Silent Hill and Clock Tower, but doesn’t quite pull it off. The presentation feels low budget and the gameplay becomes stale way too quickly. Still, fans of suspenseful hide and seek games might get a thrill out of this one.

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 a very good start of a potential horror trilogy. If you're after a scary video game with a great atmosphere, give this title a chance. Just be ready for some technical issues.
