    Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a short yet sweet horror game that mixes stealthy gameplay with an incredibly creepy story. There are plenty of twists and turns that won't leave you disappointed. You can happen upon some terrifying moments depending on how you play, which makes you want to see more. This is meant to be the first game in a trilogy, and with what I've seen here, I'm excited to learn more about this world.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a solid and full of suspense survival horror, heir of Clock Tower and with a considerable level of difficulty.

    Remothered for console is the same beautiful game seen on PC, a survival horror with strong adventure components that perfectly balances non-scripted AI with puzzles and a cohesive tale. The game is weaker in the concluding portion, and it takes only 6-7 hours to deal with it, but remains a high-level exercise in storytelling and gameplay.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers is a good survival horror based on classic games like Clock Tower, Rule of Rose and Hunting Ground. It tells a compelling story that is a bridge between the incipit and the next two chapters of the upcoming trilogy.

    It actually does not add or detract from the good that the title had to offer on computers.

    Gripping Giallo with a few technical flaws and minor gameplay weaknesses in the last third.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers has great plot and interesting gameplay, but it's AI problems, technical issues and poor second half deteriorates the overall game.

Silent Hill creator's love for this game is completely understandable. Great job Darrel and Stormnid games! An indie masterpiece. Expand

    After many years, Remothered: Tormented Fathers finally releases on console. The question remains though, was it worth the wait? The answerAfter many years, Remothered: Tormented Fathers finally releases on console. The question remains though, was it worth the wait? The answer is a resounding, "YES!"

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers takes everything good about old-school horror and meshes it into one phenomenal and terrifying experience that any fan of horror would be foolish to pass by. From it's beautiful art design and haunting atmosphere, Remothered is an absolute delight.

    From the moment it begins, you can't help but be sucked into this dreary and deadly world. I honestly found it hard to put my controller down once the horror of being stalked by these vicious psychos truly begins.

    In terms of story, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything better than Remothered. It's truly one of a kind and something so good, I don't even want to say anything more because I may actually spoil some of the amazing twists and turns. The less you know about the story, the better. I've played many triple-A games and never encountered a story this sadistic and original.

    Gameplay is tense and heart-pounding. You will spend a lot of time sneaking around the mansion and avoiding these crazy characters. Most old-school games that Remothered takes many of its inspirations from can't even compare to the types of chases that you will experience here. I really loved being chased because the soundtrack is just incredible.

    Remothered: Tormented Fathers may be a bit shorter then horror games in the past but this one is worth every penny of its price tag. By far one of the most original and engaging horror titles I have played in years. I can't wait to play it again and find every collectible!

    The gameplay is pretty good, tho the whole 'combat' aspect is a mess. Once I got spotted I usually just found it easiest to stand there n let the horribly awkward attack take place until I got grabbed and could counter attack and run. Although often at that point I'd be completely disoriented due to the stupid camera angle shifting that takes place when you counter attack.

    I liked the slow pace and tension. My enormous criticism of this game is that it was way too hard for my liking. I repeatedly got extremely, unpleasantly frustrated and angry at this game. The final 15 minutes or so of the game took me something like 4 hours to get through. 4 enormously unpleasant, infuriating hours of pain.

    I think this is the hardest game I've ever not abandoned. Usually I can't be arsed if I find myself having to try something over and over and wasting too much time.

    I don't know why I stuck with it, but eventually I prevailed.

    All in all I did enjoy and appreciate this game, but I'd never go near it again and would warn away anybody who doesn't enjoy challenging games.

    The good:

    When everything works the atmosphere is strong. It evokes tension, stress, and fear as you sneak around the mansion. The main antagonist is well thought out - solid back story, strong voice acting. The mansion itself is well designed and feels mostly realistic. The environment graphics and lighting look great and and set the atmosphere. Superb music and SFX.

    The bad:

    Poor character animation that ruins the immersion. A bad sound engine that does not differentiate between vertical spaces, meaning enemy walking a floor above or below sounds the same as if he was on your floor. This is a major issue for a game that relies so heavily on sounds to avoid enemies.
    Protagonists footsteps are barely hearable (high-heals on parquet), to the player. The story lacks focus. While the backstory of the main antagonist is brilliant and realistic, the shoehorned cliches are unnecessary. It feels like the writer decided to use EVER idea he had in one game.

    A great concept that could definitely benefit from a few more months in development.

The story is cringefest, gameplay is terrible mess from like 2 generations before. And the graphics and technical quality is laughable ( but it will make you want to tear your eyes out). price in my country is 35 $ , it was on sale for 12 $. I would even go as far as calling it a scam LUL...Yeah, It's that bad. Expand
