Bound by Flame Review | Entertainment Buddha

Bound by Flame is an ambitious RPG effort from a very small development studio, and it shows at times. The story is generic and forgettable thanks to the unclear choice system that can effectively limit your interactions with companion characters, as well as closing off hours of side quest gameplay. It never feels like your choices ultimately mean anything, and with no warnings in place you’ll find yourself taking simple dialogue choices that adversely affect your playthrough, and end up making the main plot muddier than it already is. There are a few shining lights in this otherwise average RPG, such as the leveling and crafting systems, and the extremely difficult combat is somewhat addicting. With that being said Bound by Flame is still a polarizing title. If you go into it expecting a production on the same level as The Witcher, you’ll be severely disappointed, but it still offers 15-20 hours of punishing entertainment for $49.99. If you’ve been needing a RPG to play on the PS4, Bound by Flame can satiate your hunger, but don’t expect to be blown away by what it has to offer. Otherwise, you may be better off renting Bound by Flame, or waiting for it to go on sale. (Bound by Flame, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360) 65/100

I like it in the facts that it is hard as hell on the most difficulty settings.
