Bound by Flame Review | GameGrin

Fantasy RPGs seem to go one of two ways: you’ve got the brilliantly crafted world filled with interesting characters, an engaging story and fun gameplay to back it up. Or there’s the mediocre RPG that simply tries too hard to reach the aforementioned heights with far less resources, no interesting characters, a poorly penned tale and sub-par gameplay to round it off. Bound by Flame doesn’t break this mould, and instead sets a new wooden spoon-standard for mediocre RPG experiences. Like so many of its brethren it’s not a terribly bad game, it just lacks any flare and fails to find its own way in the increasingly overpopulated world of role-playing games. It’s also a prime example of a few terrible mechanics holding back the rest of the game design, and while many gamers could easily overlook the purely average overall package, these flaws are unavoidable. (Bound by Flame, PC, PS3, PS4) 4/10
