4.0 out of 5 stars Good game with good ideas
Bound by flame is difficult to rate because there are so many good things in this game, unfortunately it also has a lot of bad things.

To begin with, the main issue I had with this game was how slow the beginning was and really not interesting. I thought I would quit after 10 minutes of gameplay because I was not involved enough. The customisation of the...

This review is from: Bound By Flame (PS3) (Video Game)
Bound by flame is difficult to rate because there are so many good things in this game, unfortunately it also has a lot of bad things.

To begin with, the main issue I had with this game was how slow the beginning was and really not interesting. I thought I would quit after 10 minutes of gameplay because I was not involved enough. The customisation of the character is limited, there are like five faces and five hair styles and the player cannot alter anything in the face, not even the hair colour. So yes, character customisation is limited (extremely limited).

Then move on to the main character (Vulcan). The use of the F word is often present in the game which is grotesque considering it is a medieval fantasy era, I don't believe the f word was invented back then, so that was just vulgar and immature. The main character is really acting childish and like a Dante wannabe, this is the main critique I have with the MC.

Gameplay-wise it's good. It's a mix between Dragon age II i'd say and the witcher, a slight incorporation of Dark soul, too. If you play on normal difficulty or above then the game is worth it but in casual you'll get bored within twenty minutes as there is no challenge whatsoever. I highly recommend not going for easy difficulty otherwise it's pointless to play it as the main interest in this game is the interesting gameplay. The crafting and level up tree are interesting and will definitely help building a great character.

Companions- Too stupid or just useless! They are always dying unless you order them to stay on the defensive. My advice is to never let your companion play anything else than defensive otherwise they'll die. Two spiders were enough to put my party in difficulty because my companion had died quick.

Story is good but nothing refreshing, again it is jarred by lots of swearing words that should not be in a medieval/fantasy game. There is the possibility for romancing character but it's not as deep as I thought it would be, don't expect something major from it.

The graphics are good, they're not empty so it's quite interesting to explore, however, the NPCs in this game are also useless. You walk in a village where only three people out of fifty can have interactions with you. Bestiary is diverse and interesting.

Soundtrack- Hard to judge, some sounds are good and others are not so good.

Final verdict- 6.5/10 it's a good game and a good way to spend time but it is jarred with couple of things such as limited character customisation, NPCs useless, companions useless, and a poorly chosen script between characters. Good things about this game is the crafting, level up tree, the gameplay (normal difficulty or above is necessary).

It's quite a great achievement from Spiders since it's a small company, if I rated the game from this perspective I would give it a 8/10 and 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars bound, 13 May 2014

This review is from: Bound By Flame (PS3) (Video Game)
a very interesting fantasy game with a new twist. for starters it is no skyrim or dragon age or dark souls but a mixture of the three which makes for a quite hard but rewarding gameplay experience. the gameplay twist is the demonic ablilties of your character, use them to become stronger at the risk of losing your humanity or do not and have a slightly harder slog.
