Someday You'll Return is just barely worth it the first time, let alone a game you might actually come back to.

When Someday You'll Return is at its best, it is one of the finest immersive horror games I've played. Its take on psychological horror and ability to create a sense of dread is second to none, but that comes with some caveats. It can drag in parts, has some frustrating stealth sections and some puzzles that are needlessly obscure, but if you're prepared to make it through the less successful moments, there is a lot to love here.

This narrative adventure with high doses of terror serves the player a large number of mechanics, a variety of settings, situations, an engaging story and countless secrets.

Someday You'll Return has some incredible atmosphere, but ultimately fails to scare due to some poor, forced stealth sections and tiresome crafting mechanics.

Someday You'll Return is a psychological horror game about a father searching for his daughter in the woods. Various mechanics such as manual climbing, puzzle solving, crafting, and herbalism all keep gameplay fresh and engaging. Herbalism isn't used as much as it could've been, which is a shame since it's pretty neat. Through it all, you'll start to question your own sanity.

Someday You'll Return has a great idea, beautiful Czech nature and a moderately exciting storyline, but just drowns in a boring and ridiculous gameplay.

Someday You'll Return is an immensely rewarding game with excellent visuals, world design, and storytelling. Poor signposting and trial-and-error can lead to frustration, but the experience is very much worth it regardless.

Someday You'll Return is an ambitious failure. It tries to cram together too many disparate game systems while failing to handle narrative and character in a way that could've made this game work. I wanted to like it; I went into it with great enthusiasm and quit it with an equally intense frustration.

Someday You'll Return is an occasionally pretty game with a splash of interesting ideas and visuals that are unfortunately let down by shoddy performance, abysmal storytelling and an overall lack of care placed into its presentation.

Someday You'll Return looked promising and starts quite well. But quickly, due to some weird choices in terms of interactions, awful acting and a lot of bugs, it just turns into a disappointing and frustrating experience to which you'll never want to return.

Despite some interesting ideas, Someday You'll Return is much less than the sum of its parts. It's not unplayable or a buggy mess but fails to really conjure any kind of intrigue or dread despite its attempts.

Someday You'll Return is a brilliant story-driven adventure that revolves around the troubled relationship of family members. Also, the game introduces an innovative and complex inventory system and some splendid puzzles.

Someday You'll Return has some intersting ideas that mash together in a bit of an odd way, and can be worth experincing if you don't mind a crummy story, bad horror stealth, and occasionally iffy puzzles.

Someday You'll Return is another example for a game that got some really gorgeous aspects, but the overall experience did not live up to expectations.

With its excellent narrative, ample content, and high replayablity, Someday You'll Return completely deserves its 30$ price tag, but falls short as a horror game. It might disappoint those who regard as a horror game, but if you choose to look past that, what remains is a masterpiece with an excellent narrative. As such the game is highly recommended; just not as a horror title
