Ken McKown writes: There are numerous fantasy action-RPGs on the market. Most of them contain a lot of the same elements and systems; rarely does one stand out. Bound by Flame feels like just another take on the genre. Its dialogue is cheesy, the path is linear, and yet somehow I can’t stop playing this game. It has a certain generic charm that kept me coming back until the end. I dare to say I had a lot of fun with this low-budget hack and slash, which is certainly something I never expected to do.
