Critic Reviews for The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature

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.

‎The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature comes to consoles, being a point-and-click graphic adventure adapted to the controller in a good way. The great story, the artistic design and the excellent soundtrack will catch us, but perhaps it will throw us back some decisions of the writers along with some minor technical errors, but that can lead to despair at some point.‎

The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature brings a beautiful artistic experience with an excellent sound immersion to tell the story of one of the most famous monsters in fiction, even with a not so good gameplay and too much linearity.

If you enjoy meta-fiction the way I do, I think you’ll enjoy your time with The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature. Clocking in at around two hours, the game is brisk but does offer replay value. The game touches on several concepts near and dear to my heart, including the idea that fiction exists beyond its creator, as well as what constitutes immortality. It’s a somber look at depression, but also finds the beauty in a flawed existence. There’s very little gameplay to be had, but like a good book or film, the questions The Wanderer poses about life, love, complicity, and free will stick with me.

Those that are obsessed with Shelley’s original novel will find this a worthy supplement. Those that aren’t will still find the experience enjoyable in its artistry.

The Wanderer leaves me wanting so much more. There is no difficulty in traversing the world of the game which doesn't work for my playstyle. That said, for those looking for a haunting story set to beautiful art The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature is for you.
