  • Summary: When we pick up games, we generally hope the entire thing is worth our time and effort, but frequently, that's not the case. Games can sometimes shine in some areas, while remaining horribly deficient in others.

Bound By Flame

Cheat Happens
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Bound by Flame is less of a game and more of an exercise in trying to cram as many fantasy RPG elements into one game as possible. For every good idea the game attempts, it shoots itself in both feet with terribly clunky combat, horridly boring writing and a campaign that you just won't care about...

  • Excerpt: It's with a bit of heavy heart that I write this Bound by Flame review. After seeing some encouraging progress made by Spiders in Mars: War Logs , hopes were high that the trend would continue and result in a game that, while unlikely to be spectacular, would at least provide a solid experience.

  • Excerpt: Bound By Flame is a game written by spiders, which is goddamn terrifying. They’ve learned to use technology! They have our internet! They know our secr- Oh, wait. It’s just Spiders, the French developers that last brought us Mars: War Logs.

  • Conclusion: Bound by Flame is an exceedingly interesting game. It attempts to join the ranks of games like The Witcher and Mass Effect with its combat and social elements but ultimately falls short. It has everything it needs to succeed, compelling swordplay, magic, crafting and a party system.

  • Excerpt: ↵ Goes down in flames. While I've been playing French developer Spiders Eurocentric action-RPG Bound By Flame , I've been taken aback by the reviews for the game with the title receiving as low as four-out-of-tens by some major outlets and a general sense of condemnation.

  • Conclusion: Spiders wanted Bound By Flame to be their big breakout hit but penny-pinching on theirs or their publisher's side will hold them back. The combat system works pretty well once you get over the lack of a roll button and it actually gets very satisfying as soon as you get used to it, as well as level...

True achievements
14 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Bound by Flame really feels like it was made by RPG fans, it has heart, and it's got a lot of charm that I have trouble finding in AAA RPGs. It's certainly not perfect, but I think it's worth a go if you are a fan of the genre. It's only $40, so at least they released it at a much cheaper price.

  • Excerpt: A couple of hours into Bound By Flame, Spiders’ latest RPG outing, I was assaulted by deja vu. At first I chalked it up to the game’s reliance on all manner of tired fantasy troops from busty witc
