Acerca de este juego

En un mundo sin esperanza asolado por los siete Señores del Hielo y su ejército de no muertos, tú eres Vulcan, un mercenario poseído por un demonio de llamas.

En este RPG, en el que todas tus decisiones tendrán consecuencias, deberás elegir entre desatar los poderes de tu demonio interior o rechazar su influencia infernal, que pretente absorber tu humanidad. Desarrolla tus habilidades y estilo de combate con total libertad eligiendo entre tres árboles de talento: las armas pesadas del Luchador, las sigilosas armas dobles del Merodeador o los devastadores hechizos de fuego del Piromántico. Recluta compañeros que vivirán, amarán, odiarán y lucharán a tu lado contra las temibles criaturas de Vertiel en combates en tiempo real tan espectaculares como tácticos.

Cuanto más grande sea el peligro, mayor será tu tentación de recurrir al poder demoníaco a costa de tu alma. ¿Qué camino elegirás?

No lo compreis, en serio, lo adquiri en rebajas y aun asi me siento timada e insultada de muchas formas distintas. Podrian haber matado a mi madre y violado mis caballos que no me sentiria tan mal como tras jugar a esto.

Es un juego con aspiraciones, a tu bolsillo, por que lo que es intentar ser un buen juego, no creo que ni lo hayan intentado. Cuando adquieres un juego de rol, esperas un minimo de posibilidades y variedades....aqui te venden un juego pasillero, corto como un suspiro y con una mecanica de lucha desesperante. Pero para decir que es de rol te dan tres dialogos y dos decisiones mal vomitadas.

Haria una review decente de por que no comprarlo, pero gastaria demasiado tiempo ya en el, y no se lo merece.

Hacedme caso, gastaos el dinero en algo que valga mas la pena, como un helado, un helado de 20€ estara mejor invertido que este juego.

Bound by Flame is a Third-Person, Story-Driven, Action-Oriented RPG developed by Spiders & published by Focus Home Interactive, the very same duo that conceived Mars: War Logs.

You are thrust into the harshness of Vertiel as Vulcan, powder master of the Freeborn Blades. The Blades along with the Elves & the Red Scribes fiercely stand as the last bastion of civilization against the might of the seven Ice Lords & their Deadwalker minions who seek to plunge Vertiel into an everlasting Ice Age. You – Vulcan – stand on the precipice of Vertiel. Will you be able to stem the frozen tide?

Before embarking upon your journey, you will be met with the character creation screen. The options present are few but include the ability to change hair/face type in addition to customizing your character’s name. The option to choose gender is also present.

Vertiel is a harsh & unforgiving land with varying environments, from tree-filled swamps to death-ridden sewers. The environments are linear, disjointed & feel claustrophobic at times despite much of the game taking place in outdoor locales.

There are three unique skill trees – Warrior, Ranger & Pyromancer, which allow you to customize your playthrough. There are several different weapon types as well. Ultimately, you’ll have to allot skill points according to which weapon you desire to use throughout. While there is some wiggle room in the ability to customize your character, it is somewhat limited as to variability. Also present is a feat system that grants a wide array of bonuses to crafting, health/mana, exploration etc., depending on how feat points are spent.

The combat feels fluid & rewarding upon dispatching your enemies into the afterlife. The boss fights are of particular note, as they are quite difficult & well-thought out in their construction. The final boss encounter was a personally euphoric experience. Even the most battle hardened will experience difficulty here.

As you adventure throughout Vertiel you will encounter foes & allies alike. Foes will become friends & friends will become foes, instigated by war’s untimely wrath. Certain allies will be able to join you on your adventure & assist you in battle, providing everything from damage absorption to the critical heal that will permit the eventuality of victory. Unfortunately, their use is highly variable & they become almost useless in certain drawn-out encounters.

Bound by Flame has an in-depth crafting system, enabling the crafting of potions, traps & even weapon/armor upgrades to slay the most formidable of foes. Much time can be wasted perfecting each piece of equipment to desired playstyle.

The dialogue in Bound by Flame is its Achilles’ heel. It does not suit the fantasy environment in any capacity whatsoever. The facial animations are equally as poor. Coupled together they provide a major drawback for any player seeking an immersive fantasy experience.

The art style & graphics provide a suitable backdrop. Other than being simply existing as a medium for the story to unravel, they don’t provide much in the way of eye candy. There is also a literal plethora of cut scenes rendered with the in-game engine. The majority of them can be skipped however, if heart longs for battle.

Olivier Deriviére, creator of the soundtrack, also creator of the soundtrack to Remember Me, pulls no punches in creating a phenomenal score that exudes both wonder & excitement. Getting lost in the different bits & pieces of it are a certainty & a joy.

In conclusion, Bound by Flame is a mixed bag in the RPG genre. It flourishes in its strengths but continually stumbles upon its mistakes. Despite its drawbacks, Bound by Flame is note-worthy & very much worth a try for fans of the genre.

Lets keep it simple.
Dark Fantasy Story : 8/10
RPG Elements: 9/10
Sound: 6/10
Music: 9/10
Gameplay:8/10

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding Dark Fantasy Action RPG, this is it. Wait for it to be on sale, hit the install, and have fun. The combat can be unfair at times, but this is not Dark Souls. The action combat is like Witcher & Gothic had a baby. The skill trees are great and very fun to test out. The voice acting is ....meh, but I have seen worse movies. The soundtrack is quite good, you won't be humming anything at work, but adds to the game. You can't compare this game to some AAA title. The effort and love put into this game shows at its core. Spiders had a story to tell and they had fun doing it. Enjoy!

the Good: - great visuals/graphics
- good music, good (enough) voice acting
- engaging story, interesting characters
- great leveling and equipment upgrading systems
- fun combat

the Bad: - controls out of combat are sluggish (can get stuck on corners)
- quest log and map could use improvement
- very limited character creation

Bound by Flame is a very good game overall, just keep in mind that it is not a big-budget, AAA title. It's a little rough around the edges, the characters aren't too deep or memorable, but the story is good and the combat and crafting aspects are fun. Fighting off multiple enemies can be a challenge so learning enemy strengths/weaknesses is important. Armor pieces can be upgraded and recycled into materials providing for myriad ways to customize buffs/debuffs. It's somewhat linear, but there are many side quests to help expand the game world.

Give this one a chance (and a little time to grow on you) and you'll probably find a hidden gem.
