First impressions of the newest action roleplaying game Bound by Flame by Spiders Studios, written by ChemicalxRachel of GamersSphere.
There is quite a bit of roundabout writing here, where she uses 4 sentences to say what can easily be described in 2. Not terrible, but just a bit of a chore to read through. That being said, I'm hoping to enjoy this game when Amazon brings it on Friday, as I loved Amalur, and hope to have a similar experience.
then you are going to be sadly disappointed my friend. The combat is much more like the witcher.
Amalur, where you killed enemies with 3-4 hits in a very combat-centric gameplay? The comparison she made seems very poor to me. The game seems to have a terribly boring and underdeveloped combat system. For instance, look at when the enemies are hit. It is just a health bar decreasing, absolutely nothing more. Disagree as much as you like, but we're looking at a 50-60 Metacritic game here.
She's clearly a budding writer, who's just getting started. A year from now she'll be far better. It's a difficult learning process. Let's support her and her work. I agree about the game, I'm psyched to get a halfway decent (at least) RPG on PS4.
Not sure how this game is going to turn out but the trailers look like it could be a decent RPG.
It's actually pretty damn good, considering Spider isn't that big of a developer.
I've noticed several people playing this already in "Live from Playstation", and the general feedback (when I asked them) is good :)
One thing I love about the live feed is that you can see gameplay from actual players and not vids from devs that only show the best parts. I was watching a live stream of it in PS4 this morning with breakfast and it looked pretty good (especially with the lower asking price of $50 for next gen versions). I just wish the guy streaming the gameplay wasn't so jumpy. They were acting like it was the middle of the night playing Outlast. I've never heard of anyone screaming so much from regular encounters.
Isn't it out, where are the reviews?
I'm guessing it has something to do with the digital release being yesterday and the retail release being Friday. *this is a complete theory that wasn't researched so salt is recommended with reading my comment*
Reviews are embargoed until the 9th. I can tell you it is good, but not great. Just don't go into it with super high expectations provided you purchase the game. Spiders certainly has potential to make something great though I can tell you that.
Wasn't going to get it. Was going to wait until a price drop. Won a couple bucks on pro-line and said what the heck. It is currently downloading. I'm also downloading "Stick it to the Man" at the moment for PS4, which is free for PS+. That one looks interesting. I got MLB:The Show yesterday. That game is stunning. Same fun game to play, but even better looking. Watch_Dogs is my next get.
I was interested to read about this game but the author write in a such an annoying way that I give up my nerves were at their limits just from reading a few lines in the start & I have a strong urge to punch some1 if it was the one who wrote this in front of me it would be perfect...
She's clearly learning to write for a site like this. She'll probably be a million times better a few articles down the line. Don't be harsh just because someone's first effort irritated you.
Not exactly a very interesting write-up, but I appreciate it for being informative.
I for one am interested in playing this game, don't have my hopes set high for it so I think I will enjoy it more, the screenshots I've seen so far don't seem to do the game justice, guess I'll have to wait to see on the 9th when I can get the retail copy. It looks to be a fun game though, I'm excited to play it not worrying too much about the graphics, etc.
Does it support local co-op?
Nope. Its just a single player experience.
Thanks, i'll pass then. +bub for helpful
Seems like they tried to get it on PS Store before retail release so anybody buying has zero reviews to go by, except those who paid fifty dollar for the digital release. Very little about paying fifty for the digital version of this game makes sense, it will be twenty bucks in less than two months used.
Having a great time with it so far! Apparently the game developer lifted the release date and GameStop wasnt going to sell it, until I told them. They received email saying the game was ok to sell early. Seems not all of them had it, the ones that did only had a couple. It's definately worth $50! It reminds me a bit like dragons dogma. Much better map system. Has multiple difficulty levels too. I'm really enjoying it so far. Good game!
'Tis £50 on the UK PSN Store for the PS4 version.Hardly a budget title.
