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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

While some of its bugs and awkward graphics take away from the game as a whole, Remothered: Tormented Fathers is an homage to classic old-school survival horror games that fans of the genre will definitely appreciate.

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.

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 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.
