Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 4

Developed by Spiders Studio for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360, the RPG Bound by Flame drags you into a heroic and desperate struggle, in which the Alliance eventually yielded in front of the inexorable advance of Dead army. From their castles of ice, the lord-sorcerers of Shadow cold now reign as masters on the continent and crush mercilessly the remnant resistance, of which you belong. When all hope appears to be lost, a demon of flames chooses you as its host... Create and customize a powerful warrior, develop your skills (combat, assassination and fire magic) and call upon the devastating powers of the demon within. Find, create and improve your weapons and armor, and find help from numerous companions to help you fight Shadow dragons, Leeches and the fearsome warriors of Dead army in perilous and spectacular real-time battles! Develop special binds with your companions such as romance, friendship or rivalry. Your decisions will bear heavy consequences... will you struggle to keep your humanity, or will you be tempted by the demon's power and let it take over?

I found the game to be exactly as Spiders advertised. Not over promised, over hyped or overpriced. On the PS4 this game looked good and ran smoothly. The only issues I came across was one bugged quest (The Barricade) and a glitch during the battle with the Blades’ Captain where I fell through the ground and was stuck on a black screen with no way to progress without shutting down the console and restarting the quest over again.

Although the snarky dialog (awkwardly peppered with profanities and “F” bombs) was obviously scripted to appeal to a more juvenile gamer audience, it was still a FUN game offering challenging boss fights that required thoughtful strategy and careful planning in regard to inventory, skill sets and companion abilities.

While I’m personally not a big fan of overly tedious inventory and crafting/upgrading systems, I do enjoy taking the time to thoroughly explore the game world and its branching storyline. Rather than plowing through the game just to see how fast I could beat it, I took the time to grind my way through all the side quests made available --- adding HOURS of gameplay to the ticket price. In that regard, one certainly can’t complain about the game not being long enough!

Add to that some replay value, above average graphics, decent combat mechanics, a comprehendible story, and the ability to craft your own player character with even the most basic gender/ethnicity options… and (for me) Bound by Flame was certainly worth every penny of its release price.

I didn't expect much going into this game but I did get quite a bit of enjoyment out of it. It doesn't do anything new for its genre but it sure as hell is an interesting ride

Pros
+Challenging Combat
+New ip
+Classic Rpg feel
+Choose your story
+Doesn't hold your hand
+Crafting was deeper than expected
+The world craves more exploration

Cons
-Uninspired Enemies
-Story did not interest me
-Character customization was lazy
-Terrible lip sync and voice acting
-Skill trees felt bland

Overall - Bound By Flame is one of those games that I'll always remember playing. If you buy it just for an rpg you wont be dissapointed, but if you're looking for Dragon Age you will not find it here. Bound By Flame is just a good game.

There aren't many meaty adventure games for the PS4 so it's nice that Bound by Flame fills the void. I typically enjoy lower budget RPG games, and seeing how I needed another PS4 game, I had to pick up Bound by Flame. Now, while I enjoy this style of game, I didn't love this developer's previous games, so I was a bit skeptical about how this one would turn out. Well, I'm glad to say that I love it. With that said, Bound by Flame isn't perfect, but none of the flaws hamper my enjoyment of it.

Firstly, I'll cover the graphics. Due to it being developed on a lower budget and not a "AAA" game release, my expectations for the graphics were rather low, but I find this game to be beautiful. The characters don't necessarily look real or animate as if they were real, however many of the textures are actually pretty detailed on PS4. It also runs in 1080p on PS4 with a framerate that was said to fluctuate between 30 and 60, but I've definitely had it drop lower than that. But I really like the art direction, lighting, shadows, etc. For a game that wasn't created on a huge budget, Bound by Flame exceeded my expectations.

Secondly, the gameplay is very fun. While not complex or that deep, what's here is quite enjoyable. I especially like a lot of the combat animations; combat maneuvers look more fluid than I was expecting. Even though the gameplay isn't complex, this is an incredibly challenging game that'll challenge most players even on lower difficulty settings.

Thirdly, I'll mention exploration since it's a role-playing game. I feel like I must mention that this isn't a massive open world like Skyrim, it's a far more structured RPG like The Witcher II. If I could compare Bound by Flame to any other RPG, it'd actually be The Witcher II.

First, I preface this by stating that I only gave this game a five out of five stars to help counterbalance the dubious negative reviews by persons who clearly made no attempt to learn the combat system before whining about how difficult the game is. Personally, I would rate it at something closer to a four out of five stars, as it is by no means perfect, but it is unquestionably deserving of a higher score than the plethora of one- to two-star reviews that seem to have flooded Amazon since its release. I was able to beat this game on the hardest difficulty (captain) without much trouble, so I'm proof that the game, when played as intended by its developer, is suitably challenging and properly balanced. Now, on to the review.

Bound by Flame is a fantasy-genre action RPG developed by Spiders, a French video game studio. It is their first major RPG to be released for retail, and hopefully not their last. While Bound by Flame doesn't do anything to reinvent the genre, what it does offer is a very unique morality-based theme and an intricate combat system that rewards strategy and endurance over button mashing and speedrunning.

The plot of Bound by Flame is that Vulcan, the hero of the story and a member of a band of mercenaries known as the Freeborn Blades, finds himself possessed by a flame demon after falling victim to a botched magic ritual that was intended to weaken the Ice Lords, a cabal of evil necromancers who have gained control of Vertiel, the world in which the game takes place. While the demon initially appears morally ambiguous-- perhaps even malevolent-- Vulcan soon discovers that the magical powers of fire that the demon offers may outweigh the negative side effects caused by allowing it to have more influence over his mind and body.
