If you're a fan of literature, games with meaning, or unique art styles, then you won't regret playing The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature. A calm, sorrowful, and beautiful adventure awaits you, with poignant storytelling from the very Creature you control. The landscape will splay out around you in vibrant watercolors, and the music will guide your emotions. There is no thrill, no fast-paced adventure, no strategy, so if that's your cup of tea you may want to look elsewhere. Otherwise, this game is a beautiful book come to life, and is absolutely worth the play.

The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature is an ode to Mary Shelley, beautiful to see, a pain to play.

Whilst artistically stunning, The Wanderer: Frankentein's Creature's port to Switch is riddled with bugs, rendering it unplayable in parts.

Unfortunately in the end I just can’t recommend this. It’s beautiful, and with a bit more polish I would call it a fine way to experience a classic tale. As it stands at the moment, though, the bugs are an active detriment and the actual gameplay, the stuff that differentiates this from just reading a book or watching a movie, feel like they detract from the story more than add to it.
