Arkham Horror: Mother's Embrace suffers from a bland and unspectacular combat system, a questionable sanity gimmick, and a litany of technical issues that are too glaring to ignore. Although it's an adaptation of a board game, you might as well call it a "bored game" due to the tedium and frustration you'll experience.
Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace is a passable translation of the mythos that board games, books, and graphic novels have been telling and retelling for decades, but stops just short of making it feel new or modern. That goes doubly for the repetitive and simple combat it throws at you between sections of uninspired “detective” work.
It’s difficult to recommend Arkham Horror Mother’s Embrace if you’re not already a fervent fan of the universe, and knowledge of what this game could have done with the source material will leave you yearning for a better digital implementation of Asmodee's tabletop tour de force.
