Informazioni sul gioco

In un mondo senza speranza devastato dai sette Signori del Ghiaccio e dal loro esercito di non-morti, tu assumi il ruolo di Vulcan, un mercenario posseduto da un demone del fuoco.

In questo RPG in cui ogni tua decisione avrà le sue conseguenze, dovrai scegliere se liberare i poteri del tuo demone interno o rifiutare l’influenza demoniaca che intende privarti della tua umanità. Sviluppa liberamente le tue capacità e il tuo stile di combattimento attraverso tre alberi delle abilità: le armi pesanti del Lottatore, le furtive armi doppie del Ranger o i devastanti incantesimi infernali del Piromante. Recluta compagni che vivranno, ameranno, odieranno e combatteranno al tuo fianco contro le orribili creature di Vertiel in spettacolari combattimenti tattici in tempo reale.

Più grande è il pericolo, maggiore sarà la tentazione di ricorrere al potere demoniaco sacrificando la tua anima… quale strada sceglierai?

Un bel RPG, non ai livelli degli altri titoli AAA, ma è sicuramente da provare sei siete fan di questo genere. Per chi conosce gli altri giochi di questo sviluppatore (of Orks and men, Mars,...): le meccaniche sono molto simili, è tutto un po' perfezionato, e la storia è interessante. Per chi non sonosce i giochi citati (che consiglio comunque), diciamo che è un RPG con combattimenti che un po' ricordano The Witcher, quindi niente scelta della classe, solo armi corpo-a-corpo ma con alcune abilità da distanza e balesta con colpi limitati. Avrete quasi sempre di fianco un compagno, al quale però potete solo dire come combattere (offensivo, diffensivo, a distanza, ecc...) senza possibilità di dargli ordini diretti. Diciamo che non sono particolarmente utili se non a distrarre un po' i nemici mentre voi li uccidete, si poteva fare di più secondo me. In generale i combattienti sono abbastanza difficili, quindi dovrete sembre attacare con strategia e non a caso, questo mi piace molto. La trama: OK. L'idea di base mi piace, la storia è originale e alcuni personaggi sono davvero interessanti, mi sarebbe piciuto approfondire di più...ma non è possibile perché succede tutto troppo in fretta e infatti il gioco finisce troppo presto (12h nel mio caso, ho fatto molte quest secondarie ma non tutte). Mancanza di fondi forse? Non lo so. Grafica: Abbastanza buona per un RPG. Audio: Fantastico, il voice-acting è ottimo così come la musica di sottofondo. Conscludendo, non aspettatevi un capolavoro o un gioco perfetto, ma se siete appassionati di giochi RPG sono sicuro che vi piacerà. Lo consiglio!

TLDR:
Pro:
-Combattimenti fatti bene
-Difficile al punto giusto
-Storia molto originale
-Effetti sonori fantastici

Contro:
-Mi sarebbe piaciuto qualcosa in più per la gestione compagni
-Troppo corto

I enjoyed this game so much, i did all the side quests i could, i tried to romance one char but i failed >:| and i dont know why, but well, the romance side is not that important in this game. I liked a lot the gameplay , the chance to take important choices for the plot and how i can customize the hero. I cant say it's a perfect game, AI is pretty meh, once you learn how an enemy moves, it will be like that over and over again. Bosses are tough , I had to lower the difficulty at the final boss to "easy" because cba to try dozens of times to beat it (shame on me forever and ever) and even on easy took me a few tries :|||||| . Although I had a lot of fun on this and i feel like it's worth it to be played. So i give it a proud thumb up

In Bound by Flame you'll control Vulcan, a mercenary in a world where the Lords of Ice seek to destroy humanity and seize power through their undead and demonic armies. Events see you becoming the host of a demonic entity that promises you great powers if you let it take some control over you and said powers might be the only thing that'd defeat the Lords.
While not an horrible game Bound by Flame is sadly plagued by several cliches in its story and characters while sporting a combat system that is a bit too clunky for the challenges you'll be facing.

PROS:

-most character and monster models are pretty detailed, the hero character stands out as his/her armor and weapons change depending on what you equip and what upgrades you craft

-great soundtrack

-if you accept its influence the gradual changes in the hero's body and voice as the demon takes over are quite interesting and well represented

-lots of weapons/armor to find or buy, all of them can also be upgraded

-good amount of skills/skill upgrades to choose from when you level up: you'll have three main "classes" (warrior,dual-wielding ranger and caster) and can spend points wherever you wish while freely switching between each during combat

CONS:

-dull story, lots of cliches in the plot

-dialogues are, for the most part, just boring and drawn-out: there's also a few attempts at humour that are way out of place

-companion characters are unoriginal (elf archer, somewhat evil female witch etc)

-story decisions don't matter that much and you'll still be visiting the same locations with only a few quests changing slightly

-world graphics are pretty average and boring, colors feel a bit washed out and lights are too harsh

-animations are ok in combat but look quite wooden during cutscenes

-level design is boring and uninspired, most consist of a few areas connected my corridor-like paths, there's also little in the way of embellishments leading to them looking bare

-voice acting is quite weak overall

-companion AI is bad, they seldom dodge and are happy to stay in AOE damage: enemy AI can also sometimes act up

-combat system is decent per se, but you'll be asked to face several enemies at once and go through parries/attacks/interrupts with good timing if you want to live: sadly while the enemies attack quickly the controls don't feel responsive enough to make things work well

-combat difficulty is a bit all over the place requiring silly workarounds by using the enemy AI against itself to make things easier: last boss is also laughably hard unless you use a certain strategy to beat it

-little variety in enemy types and models

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=508373065

Bound by Flame feels like a missed opportunity to be honest as, while the premise sounds interesting, the plot itself is so similar to many other games/movies to soon become uninteresting: things are made worse when said plot is delivered by poor voice actors behind characters that are quite flat and nondescript.

A generic and dull story might be forgiven if the game gave you a good time during combat but sadly it falls flat even there: you'll often face too many enemies at once and their attacks can frequently interrupt yours or stun you thus leaving you unable to defend yourself, this'll be a quick death on anything but the easiest difficulty level. Some spells or abilities also take too long to cast considering how quickly you're supposed to react, 3 seconds to cast a war cry as a warrior? No thanks.

So to make things easier you can-and it's actually encouraged- cheat the enemy AI by pulling one of a group or, if it fails, fighting a bit and then retreating until they disengage so that you can wait for health/mana to recharge and attack again. This isn't really fun and clashes with the sense of grandiose that a supposedly badass, demon-possessed hero'd be feeling.

I can't recommend the game as I feel there are way better options if you're looking for a good story, good combat or both: as said it's not horrible and it works for the most part but it's so generic, dull and frustrating that even on sale I'd recommend it only for someone desperate for an action RPG fix and willing to overlook its many blemishes.

Here's a simple pro's and con's list for those who want to know right away if it's their cup of tea...

Pro's
-Decent voice acting on the most important npcs
-Very challenging on even the "normal" difficulty in combat
-Can decide whether to be "good" or "evil"
-Excellent music
-Interesting enemy types and companions
-Decent graphics

Now the cons...

-A wee bit short (only took me 15 hours doing everything for 1 playthrough)
-Some wanky animations and non-lazy animations (ex. many people in the towns don't even move...they look frozen)
-Cut Scenes can have clipping issues and the hero killing enemies sometimes looks weird to say the least
-End boss can be a MAJOR PAIN (make sure you stock up on healing and mana potions)
-Romances in the game are very short

Despite all these pro's and con's all in all the game is at the very least a solid 7 out of 10 when all is said and done...Worthy of your time if you like action RPG's that have challenging combat with a decent storyline...pick it up if you see it for $20 or less!

How did this happen!

How can an Action RPG game with Wonderful Music, Stunning Visual, Beautiful Character, Unique background, Cool Cut scenes, Choice and consequnce system, Interesting Talent system, Craftable/Recyclable ingrediant/item/potion and the coolest skeleton ever(Praise Mathras). Only got 67% approval rating?

This game is the very first ARPG Spider studio ever made. Honestly it's not bad at all. It's like a Witcher 2 on discount and I like combat in here better then Darksoul even.(it's not a button masher! you have to time everything). (Edit 2: Ya.. and my review is getting chewed alive because of that dark souls comment.. Anyhow since I only play the tutorial stage of it.. i should really don't say this comment. O.. well i will leave it here just for laugh)

Spider Stuido ventured out and tried many many different things for this game. Most of the ingrediant worked but just like a pot of stew. With a few minor flawed ingrediant and a drop of Rat goo would ruined the entire Stew!(game).

Minor flaws 1:
Not all idea are implemented.
There is day and night system that you can rest to change time for events to happen. Much like FF: Lighting return or Baldur's gate series. But through the entire story.. you don't need to rest once. And there is only 1 event and 1 subquest that require you to go out at night.
Craftable items are very interesting but you can only craft to upgrade weapons but you cannot create weapons and armors from parts.. and There are very few different type of items that you can use to craft.. It's like less then 10 types of ingrediant in the entire game. And every single type of monster in the entire game drop 1 of those 10 types of items.
There are 3 different class and for Warrior class you can use 3 different type of weapon.. Sword, Axe and Hammer. But there are not too much difference between them. Even animation looks almost the same.

Minor Flaw 2:
Character development.
The scripting of most of the story and general background is really good. But sometimes I cannot tell if it's being rushed or the story teller is drunk some time.
You can feel this is a really big world with an impending unstopable army that dread upon it at the very beginning of the game. There are interesting clan of people and some really fun and unexpected event twist..
That's all good but with the 4 major partner that you have that help you on your journey are really messed up.
2 male and 2 female that you can start a small romance with much like mass effect series. And 2 other part time partner including Mr.Mathras that travels you with certain quests. There are just not enough character development for a few character to make plot change reasonable and sometime it makes you scratch your head because there are too many question marks on it. Why do my girl suddenly romance the knight and elf? No hints about that's coming ever!

Minor Flaw 3:
Partner AI.. Well. The enemy AI was well done.. They know when to block.. when to counter.. when to run and they even ran to call help sometimes. They fight smart and why cannot my Partner fight smart? Most of the time.. My partner just tanks 1-2 enemy and dies within a minute and buy me just enough time to kill some archers.. The combat modes and order doesn't really help. Setting on defense mode just make them live at least a bit longer so it's recommended.

And finnaly the Rat Goo that ruined this great meal.
It's short coming are just too short! Literally!

This game is too short.. I am running 2 games at same time to get all achievements. 1 female human route on captain difficulty and 1 male demon route on vulcan difficulty. Together I finished both game back to back in just a little over 30 hours! That's including all the goofing off at easy difficulty to find all dialoge options and side quest and all the death on hard difficulty...

It almost seems I finnaly got into the fun and core of the game and it suddenly ended! I am sure if another player skips all the guide and just rush though the yellow story event marker all the time and ignore all the side quest.. This game can be done in less then 6 hours! Level really doesn't mean much other then it gives some skill and talents points. You stuck on 100 hp and mp unless you finish specific quests.

Over all did I enjoy this game? Yes I did for a few days.. Am I satisfied? No I am not.. IT could been a triple A title if they just made the story 3 times the current length and fix a few flaws...

That's all i am gonna say.. 7.0/10 Recommended for quick Action game Lover.. RPG lovers may love and hate this game at the same time..

Edit 1: My review is too long... I just had too much to say and I had to trim it down 3 times so it can fit...
