Someday You'll Return Reviews
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 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 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.
Despite my initial reservations about Daniel as a protagonist and the narrative voice of the game, Someday You’ll Return is a fantastic psychological horror with enough extra gameplay features to keep it entertaining.
Someday You'll Return is just barely worth it the first time, let alone a game you might actually come back to.
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.
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 much more than a psychological horror game, it’s an immersive adventure which you’ll never forget. Although initially looking for your daughter, you’ll soon find yourself helping others and discovering secrets about yourself and the past, things which you forgot a long time ago. Despite my lack of interest in being chased and performing stealth mechanics, the ones within this game weren’t too bad, being rather forgiving and easy to complete after a few tries. It’s a beautiful digital trip to real-life locations, enhanced with fantastical and horrific events which will scare and disturb you.
There are some problems with the pacing, especially when you get lost in the forest or stuck on a puzzle, but the story is so compelling you’ll have to see it through to the end. It’s one of those games that sticks with you long after it’s over. The way the story unfolds and is presented to you is brilliant.
In the story-driven horror game Someday You'll Return, you'll try on the role of desperate father looking for his teenage daughter Stela in the macabre Moravian woods. So, cowboy up and be prepared to start down a hazardous journey into the darkness with our PC review of Someday You'll Return.
Someday You'll Return threatens to become a horror favourite before mundane stealth sections and repetitive puzzling that can't support the weight of CBE's narrative ambitions bring it crashing down.
Almost as quickly as it starts to get good, this genre-spanning indie horror drops the ball by tossing its best ideas out the window and overstaying its welcome
A trip that’ll thoroughly test your patience.
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 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.

Someday You'll Return failed to escape the shadow of its own genre, but on a whole, it's a quality adventure game set in an attractive Central European setting.

Someday You'll Return is neither on par with top quality horror games, nor can compete with other indie titles in the past few years.

The game offers a lot. Whether it's wandering through the woods, solving puzzles, sneaking in on enemies or walking through places where the atmosphere could literally be cut. Some passages are a little weaker, lengthy and even annoying at times. But the overall experience of the game is really exceptional and if you sometimes go in a different direction than the game requires, the end of the game can reveal much more to you…

Someday You’ll Return is a great 6 hour game stuffed into an over-sized 15 hour package. On the plus side, the story is certainly gripping, the graphics look great and the sound design is some of the best in any video-game this year. Frustratingly, what begins as a really interesting and hellish dive into an adventurous mystery with horror elements quickly becomes bloated and bogged down, throwing in far too many unnecessary stealth sections and obfuscated puzzles.
