關於此遊戲

You are a mercenary possessed by a flame demon in a desperate world ravaged by seven Ice Lords and their Dead-Army.

In this RPG where all your choices lead to consequences, you will have to choose between unleashing the powers of the beast within and rejecting the demonic influence that wants to claim your humanity.

Freely develop your abilities and combat style through three skill trees: swing the heavy weapons of the Fighter, wield the sneaky dual daggers of the Ranger, or use the devastating flame spells of the Pyromancer.

Recruit companions who will live, love, hate and fight alongside you against the dreadful creatures of Vertiel, in real-time epic battles based on tactics and reaction.

The bigger the danger, the greater the temptation to draw on the demon’s power at the cost of your soul… which way will YOU choose?

This game gets a 10 out of 10 from me. It has been a long time since I have been so immersed in a story as much as I have with this game. I love the characters and their funny dialogue. The fighting style is easy to get the hang of and becomes a ton of fun. Leveling is simple and crafting is easy to understand. I highly recommend this game. I am addicted!

Looks great, nice music, has skill tree, crafting...
But I don't know why, the camera keeps centering on me (from almost the top) . Thanks to that angle, I can't see my surroundings. For me, that makes it unplayable as I need to constantly move the mouse just to level back :-(
Oh and sometimes it crashes (I'm on Linux).

wtf is wrong with people? i really do not understand why this is getting any negative reviews.....

this is a great action rpg game. fight enemies, gain experience, level up, assign skill and stat points, equip better weapons and armor. even bring a companion along to help fight and heal. lots of side quests to do, not to mention the main quest.

the fighting mechanics in this game are pretty cool, you have a pretty unique feeling dodge ability, and if you dodge in perfect timing of the enemy attack you get extra damage in.

the companions you can bring feel very weak but are somewhat helpful.

the skill sets feel ok but i wish they were better. same for the stats.

PROS:
graphically amazing
time of day/time of night oriented missions
choices you make affect the games story, even the ending
level up and assign stats and skills
upgrade armor and weapons
lots of enemies to battle
pretty sweet boss fights
game runs perfectly, no stuttering lagging issues
have not ran into any bugs or glitches

CONS:
skill and stats could be better and more helpful (not game breaking at all)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND 7/10

The gameplay is passable, the writing is horrible but in a good way. It's the momma jokes, and other dumb ♥♥♥♥ that actually works. It's a game I can't help but admire, because of the effort the team put into it. You can really see they were trying their best, even if the result isn't so great. The same with their other games, Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs for example.

Yeah, i recommend this for what it is, a cheesy and fun B rated game

I bought this as part of a bundle and for the $1 I paid for it (proportionately) it's been incredible value. Yes, it has its faults - some of the voice work is pitiful (though the combat ain't as bad as some folks say - this is an RPG not a FPS, combat isn't hardcore) but all told - it's good fun and very much in the vein of KOTOR or Mass Effect (though in a fantasy setting). Is it perfect? Heck no. Is it good value for money and entertaining enough to be worth buying? Yes. Not sure I'd pay full price though; you might be best waiting for a sale or finding it in a bundle.

As a full priced item Bound by Flame is a bit too steep for a random gamble. On a good sale however this is a great game with a good amount of depth. The branching gameplay has some meaningful decisions, and some illusory choice, but that is to be expected with this type of game. Essentially this is really impressive, considering the size of the development team. I enjoyed this game and found the playthrough engrossing enough to keep going even when some of the segments got a bit repetitive. I don't know if it's possible to beat the game with Warrior build, but the rogue and pyromancer skill tree are a deadly combo. Worth the time I put into it.

Very underrated game. I feel that people give this game too much hate for what they had to work with (a budget of only around 800k). There are some bad VOs in this game and sometimes the lines are super cheesy, but I say it's all easily overlooked once you get yourself engaged in the game.

The atmosphere and story are very interesting and have a fair amount of depth to them. Some characters are bland, but others are super interesting and leave you wishing to learn more. The choices in this game were sometimes hard to make, but some of them were easy to predict how it would affect your character down the line.

Combat in this game was very much like The Witcher and Dragon Age combined, not to mention the atmosphere draws from the two as well, which is a huge perk. Difficulty comparable to Dark Souls, if it's your first play-through you should definitely go the easiest difficulty.

Also, the soundtrack is one of the best I've heard for the genre. I got this game on sale, if you can get it for about 20 bucks or so, would definitely recommend picking it up, it's a relatively quick game to defeat (took me 11 hours), depending on how many times you die.

At this point you know what to expect from a Spiders game. Short but sweet. It's about a 20 hour game but priced appropriately. The game has 3 or 4 main chapters, some side quests and an interesting story, but could have been so much more. It’s not an open world but a semi open map that changes each major chapter, so no backtracking. Its comes off nicely done, and for what it is, its defiantly worth picking up and playing if you want to take a break from FO4 or The Witcher 3, or if you are waiting on some new title that just isn’t here yet.

Pros:
Good/Decent graphics
Great soundtrack
Fun playstyle
A small amount of choice based story
Companions
Descent voice acting, especially the main character

Cons:
Short
Not fully fleshed out/realized
Final boss seems almost impossible at first

To summarize: Yes, it's kinda like The Witcher, and it's kinda like Dragon Age, and it's kinda like a fanfic version of Dragon Age Inquisition like remember when there was a long wait for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, so everyone and their monkey's uncle wrote their own fanfic version of it and when it finally came out, some fanfics were better than the real thing -- well, this is that in game form.

Imagine if Dragon Age Inquisition was about Iron Bull and his mercenaries absorbing the Inquisition because Bull was the Chosen One? That would be this game, right here.

Much like Mars War Logs, the original-idea-to-borrowed-idea ratio is somewhat messy, but the ingenuity of the way some ideas are used, as well as an ask-no-quarter grimdark approach to the story compensate for it.

If you're looking for an unhyped fantasy RPG to play that's going to fill a "I wish BioWare would spend more time closing plot holes than SJW-chasing"-shaped hole in your heart, this would be this game, right here.

Downsides disclaimer: The third act of the game has a rushed feel to it, as it doesn't quite end the story in the way you'd have expected it to if it were a AAA game, and not in a good sense, but the sheer path-less-takenuity of it was ample compensation for me.

Also, it's more Witcher 1 than Witcher 3, if you get my drift. Hopefully, Technomancer will improve upon Mars War Logs, and whatever follows, will improve on this game.

Bound by Flame is a classic bait-and-switch marketing title. While there is a tremendous amount of visual polish and the interface/HUD are well-designed to handle the myriad of abilities, information, crafting, etc. that the game contains, the game underneath falls far short of that presentation.

Bound by Flame attempts to tap into the "tough-but-fair" gamer demographic, with punishing combat even on the easiest difficulty setting. Unfortunately, a limited moveset and HP-sponge enemies make every single encounter an obnoxious test of both the player's dexterity and patience. The crafting and resource management system does nothing to redeem this flaw - equipment can be upgraded in a variety of ways, but these upgrades have no discernible impact on the combat. Perhaps the most major flaw is the writing & voice acting: the dialogue is incredibly redundant, tropey, and delivered in either a tepid monotone or an exaggerated facsimile of genuine emotion. The lines are synced to animations in-game, which means that almost every conversation has long, awkward pauses while a character finishes waving their hands in the air.

Perhaps graphically-oriented gamers with an enormous lust for grind will find this game entertaining, but for most there will be nothing to engage after an hour reveals the limited extent of the core mechanics.

I have mixed feelings about this game (like everybody else xD). So I'll just point out what was good and bad.

- soundtrack is probably the best thing in this game,
- i love visual aspect of the game. I liked locations, character models, even menu and loading screens, quality is medicore though,
- three skill trees: Fighter (2h sword), ranger (daggers + stealth), pyromancy. Good mix of pyromancy and ranger will turn hardest difficulty into walk in the park. Focusing on fighter tree will turn normal difficulty into nightmare. Swords deal little damage, and fighter skills are not really usefull (I sugest to leave sword for second playthrough),
- I like how your decisions change story, ending and possibillity of wearing helmet (you can earn nice horns),
- fighting mechanics and high difficulty is something that i really like, unfortunatelly game is even harder because of lack of polishing (you have too big hitbox, all enemies are bulletsponges, some spells can hit you even if visually you are out of their range),
- variety of weapons and armor is rather small but upgrading method is great,
- useless merchants - they have nothing interesting to buy and you won't sell anything (you will turn everything into crafting materials),
- finall boss battle - a lot of people whine about it - it is really long and hard. And one mistake can force you to start from the beginning... But it's totally worth it. Treat whole game as preparations to it. Gather traps, arrows and health potions - you will use tham all in finall battle.
- story is nothing special (but still entertaining), characters are nicelly written (especially Mathras), some dialogues are well written, some are terrible. Characters will give you "personal" quests. Completing them all + taking character to boss battles in last chapter will give you romance opportunity.

Not worth the full price though.

An interesting RPG with beautiful graphical details that shine even through it's several gameplay flaws. The combat is troublesome at times, the controls not as responsive as you'd expect and the AI has it's moments of uncertainty. But the game's story is it's main focal point. It's got an intriguing moral dilemma to it: How far will you go to win? The Evil path seems easier and the demonic influences upon yourself are hard to resist. And yet playing the Hero once again is a challenge worthy of any RPG player. Don't expect a Dark Souls type of difficulty but enjoy the game nonetheless. I still hope for a sequel, but sadly it never sold well enough and was always received with a lukewarm reception.

簡單來說,這是款褒貶不一的黑暗靈魂。

戰鬥跟黑暗靈魂一樣都很有挑戰性,玩起來很過癮,個人最喜歡用遊俠型態,以高速的攻擊斬殺對手。使用Q進行閃避,我覺得比黑暗靈魂一直滾滾滾更接近真實的戰鬥。

魔物的設計挺用心的。每種敵人都有一種以上的攻擊方式,而且武器技能各不相同。遇到比較強的敵人,需要觀察一陣子,摸清楚它的行為模式再跟它作戰。這是這款遊戲最有趣的地方。

有人可能會覺得敵人的種類有點少,的確是這樣子沒錯,但這不全然是個缺點。玩到遊戲後期,你會再次遇到前期的BOSS,而你會發現它們打起來變輕鬆了,也就有自己變強了成就感,這是這款遊戲給玩家最大的回饋。

然而,這終究不是款3A大作。

劇情是最糟糕的敗筆。故事的推進,完全是靠遊戲中的角色死死的站在原地一直講話,沒有多少表情,也沒有多少肢體語言。這部分其實算是合格,劇本跟配音都算用心,也給予玩家很多對話選項。然而,很殘酷的是,如果你用3A大作的標準來衡量,這部分完全不合格。

綜合以上,建議等到打二折的時候,再入手這款遊戲。這款怪砍起來很爽的 RPG,有$145元的價值,但絕對沒有$728的價值。

First of all, I want to say that I am a gamer for more than 15 years and have experienced many, many games. And RPG is my favorite genre.
So here we go. Bound by flame is a demonic fantasy world RPG with so big potential and so amazing universe. The game follows Vulcan (regretfully, although you are asked at the beginning of the game about your name, you are Vulcan...) pretty interesting character who has a demon inside him. The first bad thing that you will meet is the mediocre voice of the NPC's and of the main hero. There are some not that good jokes and insults along the way but if you don't really dig into it, you will be fine. The good thing though is that the voice changes as you choose what to be - a good hero or a bad demon.
The game takes you to pretty different quests and nasty creatures. The cool thing about this RPG is that it's pretty intense and you go along with people who helps you along the way. The bad thing is that the combat system is pretty hard and really, really hard to expert. The bosses are hard sometimes and if you jump directly to higher difficulties, you will be pretty annoyed, but there are much games with bigger expectations and budget and are a worse.
Given the fact that it's almost an indie project with a new, small studio developing the game, I really enjoyed it and I recommend it to RPG fans. I don't share with the general opinion that the game is not worth it. I hope that there are more projects like that one so you don't play all along the same thing everyday.

So ive just finished the game myself and for me its an extremely mixed bag. SPOILER WARNINGS.

COMBAT
The combat system in general is actually pretty nice. It takes away from the standard hack and slash type games and goes for a more defensive style, but doesnt curb stomp you too hard if you dont get the learning curve right away. The best way I can sum it up is it feels like Dark Souls if it was easier. However dont let the review quotes fool you into thinking its much more in depth than it seems. When they say multiple combat styles, what they really mean is two: Warrior which focuses on blocking, counter attacking, using two-handed weapons, and kicks to stagger enemies and Ranger, using two daggers in quick rapid combos, dodging and a stealth mechanic. There is a third skill tree to go down, Pyromancy, yes fire type magic is the only kind you use in this game but it comes in several options for offense and defense so its in a way a varying utility tree.

In essance, the combat system can be a bit rough, especially for new players. It punishes you for mistakes so either learn your mistakes quickly or change your strategy. As I said, it feels like a Dark Souls game where every hit you take counts, positioning matters, and good reaction times are keys to winning. The options for making your own play style are there, but honestly in my opinion, they feel unfinished. The weapons for Warrior stance are Swords which are quick but weak weapons, Axes are a bit stronger and have better crit rating but are slower, and Hammers which are the slowest but stagger enemies more often. Rangers are limited to using only daggers and you also come with a hand crossbow and trap bombs you can lay about. You are allowed to craft addons into your weapons and armor with materials, anything from increasing damage, crit rate, staggering chance, physical resistance, magic resistance, etc. So farming up materials is important. You are also allowed to take one companion with you amoung the ones you meet along the way, each of them having pros and cons so it really makes you have to choose wisely for the best one suited to the task.

STORY
This was a very major point that could make or break the game.....and unfortunately for me it broke. The base of the story is that a group of mages grew so powerful they became the Ice Lords of Frozen Shadow, blanketting most of the world in ice and raising the undead into armies to take control of what little the humans and elves have left. Naturally this adds a sense of dread. Combined with the difficulty of the game, the feeling of this impending doom always looming over you really inhances the experiance of making every resource count. The undead have you and the little allies you have pinned in a corner and youll feel like a rat in a maze while a snake follows just behind.

SPOILER WARNING
You play as the explosive expert in a group of mercenaries called the Freeborne Blades and you have been hired by a group of scholar/mages called the Red Scribes. Your job is to protect them while they perform a ritual that could turn the tide of the war. Everything is quiet until, uh oh, the undead start to raid the temple and you have to defend it. Pretty much in a nut shell, the Red Scribes summon a fire demon and it chooses your body to be its host. After this happens, you and your company have to travel across the land to get them to the elven city. Inbetween there you meet several characters that become party members. Once you reach your goal, you find that the elven city has been taken by one of the Ice Lords and your role in the war isnt over just yet.

Ok so here are the mega spoilers if you really wanna keep more to yourself.

The game is always throwing at you and reminding you that there are several Ice Lords, but you only fight two depending on your ingame choices. This was incredibly game breaking as they build up that you are the savior of the land that wields the flame of the world itself to take down the ice lords, and you only have to really kill one of them before going onto the final boss. Hell, you dont even SEE the rest of them. All you get is their names and I dont know if this was suppose to be a set up to future games or not, but in my eyes its alot of story and build up for a whole lotta nothing. What happens when you beat that Ice Lord? What are the rest of them doing while you are doing that? Lots of questions and no answers leaves a player stranded on an island without even so much as a palm tree to sit under. Its barren and this is why I say it feels unfinished. So much wasted potential for so little a reward.
SPOILER END

All in all, I thought the story was quite nice, the characters were alright but most could use some polishing up to make you really dig into them and their lives. There isnt much interacting besides doing some quests for them now and again and beyond that just talking about them or asking them questions on the situation. Nothing really holds you or gets you truely involved with them. Even the romance sections are lack luster so dont believe the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t review that says its like Mass Effect only in a differant setting. Its not even close by a long shot, but all I can say is it was a good try.

GRAPHICS AND SOUND
The graphics can be a bit annoying at times when it flares up in brightness from sun shining through the trees or a patch of ice with mist around it starts glowing white, and turning down the brightness makes everything darker so its up to the player. The textures are decent in my opinion, the facial hair was very nice by actually making it look scruffy and rough rather than just a smooth shape. The character design options are slim so youll have to make do with the best you can but in the end it feels good enough to get by.

The music is very nice, though sometimes it can cut over the voice acting if you leave it at max. The voice acting itself feels alright, but again unfinished and needs polish. Some characters sound too stoic and others arnt expressing enough and it can kill immersion quite a bit. The sound effects such as hacking with your weapons was actually rather nice and I enjoyed them, it made it feel rough and real instead of the regular sleek sounds you normally think of with swords.

FINAL JUDGEMENT
With everything I experianced from the story telling to the combat system, characters and game mechanics I would say it is worth getting, but never at full price as its not worth that much. I would say get it at at least 50% off or more, that way you are getting your monies worth. There is FAR too much story left out of the game and its alot shorter than your going to want it to be which leaves you disappointed. The multiple choices you make have some impact, but it doesnt feel like they have any weight to them so it will make you wonder what differance it really made and that takes away from the replay ability. You would probably play this game twice at minimum, the second time making all the opposite choices just to satisfy your curiosity but thats about it so dont expect anything really major, the game is far too short to carry anything substantial.

My advice, buy at your own risk if you want a good challange, decent characters and story, and a good time killer just dont expect anything ground breaking or award winning as this game is sorely lacking in those departments.

The short version: 6/10

Bound by Flame is a classic bait-and-switch marketing title. While there is a tremendous amount of visual polish and the interface/HUD are well-designed to handle the myriad of abilities, information, crafting, etc. that the game contains, the game underneath falls far short of that presentation.

Bound by Flame attempts to tap into the "tough-but-fair" gamer demographic, with punishing combat even on the easiest difficulty setting. Unfortunately, a limited moveset and HP-sponge enemies make every single encounter an obnoxious test of both the player's dexterity and patience. The crafting and resource management system does nothing to redeem this flaw - equipment can be upgraded in a variety of ways, but these upgrades have no discernible impact on the combat. Perhaps the most major flaw is the writing & voice acting: the dialogue is incredibly redundant, tropey, and delivered in either a tepid monotone or an exaggerated facsimile of genuine emotion. The lines are synced to animations in-game, which means that almost every conversation has long, awkward pauses while a character finishes waving their hands in the air.

Perhaps graphically-oriented gamers with an enormous lust for grind will find this game entertaining, but for most there will be nothing to engage after an hour reveals the limited extent of the core mechanics.

wtf is wrong with people? i really do not understand why this is getting any negative reviews.....

this is a great action rpg game. fight enemies, gain experience, level up, assign skill and stat points, equip better weapons and armor. even bring a companion along to help fight and heal. lots of side quests to do, not to mention the main quest.

the fighting mechanics in this game are pretty cool, you have a pretty unique feeling dodge ability, and if you dodge in perfect timing of the enemy attack you get extra damage in.

the companions you can bring feel very weak but are somewhat helpful.

the skill sets feel ok but i wish they were better. same for the stats.

PROS:
graphically amazing
time of day/time of night oriented missions
choices you make affect the games story, even the ending
level up and assign stats and skills
upgrade armor and weapons
lots of enemies to battle
pretty sweet boss fights
game runs perfectly, no stuttering lagging issues
have not ran into any bugs or glitches

CONS:
skill and stats could be better and more helpful (not game breaking at all)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND 7/10

Seriously, your games are plagued with controller issues. Not just one game you produce but a consistent issue with ALL games you produce. How can I give a positive rating when it states controller compatible and really it isn't.

For my recommendation, it is under the presumption that game is on sale. At the time of my purchase it was $5.

If you're looking for an incredible story to sink your teeth in for several hours, this may not be the game for you. Although it dabbles in something interesting concepts and provides player choices to alter the outcome of the game, the entire lore is a bit lackluster. The characters involved that attempt to drive the lore are also themselves bland and lacking true character development. Your potential followers hardly possess any characteristics that make them stand out from the rest of the npcs, and so it's hard to feel any real attachment to them. There are romance options in the game, but they feel rushed and simply misplaced in the context of the game.

The game's saving grace is the combat. It is heavily reliant on parry/dodge/block mechanics, but that saves it from being a boring hack and slash game with no good story to fall on. Apart from most rpgs, if you take a hit you will take a lot of damage, but it's not much of a contestant to the likes of the soul series. The animations are fluid and feel as if the sword your swinging has some real weight to it.

The talent trees have little to offer as there is not many skills to choose from. The crafting is simple, yet effective. Most weapons and armors have modifications which actually give different appearances along with different effects.

As for the main attraction of the game, becoming demon or remaining human adds a fun factor to the game and gives it a bit of replayability.

Overall, it is something to play when you have some time to kill and want a bit of a combat challenge.

As a full priced item Bound by Flame is a bit too steep for a random gamble. On a good sale however this is a great game with a good amount of depth. The branching gameplay has some meaningful decisions, and some illusory choice, but that is to be expected with this type of game. Essentially this is really impressive, considering the size of the development team. I enjoyed this game and found the playthrough engrossing enough to keep going even when some of the segments got a bit repetitive. I don't know if it's possible to beat the game with Warrior build, but the rogue and pyromancer skill tree are a deadly combo. Worth the time I put into it.

A surprisingly stylish Rpg which kept me playing till the credits.

I found the setting, soundtrack and combat to be fantastic. Graphically not a slouch either.

You assume the role of a mercenary, male or female (your choice) in a famous band of cutthroats under the leadership of the "captain" who is seriously channeling Sean Connery.

It starts off as an escort mission, guarding a group of priests to be more specific but quickly escalates when the Undead hordes arrive.

You learn of 7 master sorcerers who are taking the world by storm and how there is no chance of fighting back....or is there?

A ritual is started and by the end you will never be the same.

The story takes off from there and its up to you how it will end. Will you resist the dark side or go full demonic?

I found it to be very satisfying, only negative point I can think of was the length. It ends after 20 odd hours and I admit I'm spoiled and was expecting another huge epic journey.

The main selling point of the game is the combat. Its right up there with the best games in the rpg genre. Its unforgiving and difficult to start off with but once your past that learning curve it becomes very satisfying.

Just make sure to grab the pyromancy talents as the game will be very hard without them.

ps..Make sure you have at least 60 mana pots for the final battle, I had 105 which was unnecessary but i can't imagine fighting there without them.

I knew this was no AAA game going in, and in did, in fact, have a *lot* of issues: poor mapping, nearly useless vendors and crafting (I never bought a single piece of armor or any weapons, all the vendors had was junk), bizarre plotlines that just dropped off/never went anywhere/made no sense, your companions have about as much depth as a child's wading pool, and there were many issues in the dialogue -incredibly vague dialogue choices (quite a few times I had no idea how to interpret some of the options) miscues on gender, audio not playing, hell, they mispelled the PC's name a few times. The game was sometimes fun for what it was, but overall it was shallow and felt incomplete and rushed in so many spots. And with the terrible, abrupt endings they made available, I will probably never trust or play another Spider game. I know some people say endings like this are good because real life isn't always a happy ending, but screw that. I game to escape my life for a while, forget coming out of the game more disgruntled than when I went in! If you're going to pull what they did, at least make it feel meaningful! At least it didn't depress me, I was never able to get attached to any of the characters - and I'm someone who ALWAYS gets emotionally invested in these things.

The game advertises that all your choices matter in determining whether you go demon or stay human, too, and that is absolutely not the case. If you make one incorrect guess on a dialogue choice in one of three spots, you're screwed. You can be a saint throughout the game and you'll still go demon.

I also just noticed that I never encountered a couple of the mobs shown in the images on the game's store page, so either I was weirdly unlucky, they looked nothing in game like they're being advertised, or it was straight-up deceptive advertising.

In the end, if the game still interests you and it falls below $5.00, it'd be an ok diversion for a weekend if you don't expect much. At the full price of $30, though? Absolutely NOT worth it.

Right so I got a couple of issues with this game so I'll just separated into categories:

I. Gameplay/Mechanics
-Good things:
1. While the combat is difficult most of the time it feels more challenging than a chore
2. The levelling system for each skill is a nice touch and it can really make a difference
3. It's a fluid hack and slash comparable to high budget titles in quality such as Batman:GOTY
4. I love that you can craft, upgrade, and even recycle weapons, and the way Bound by Flame does it is very good as ingridents aren't neither super rare nor super common and you can also make one use items yourself
5. One of my favorite aspects of the game has to be the booby trap, because it does not only help you out a lot, but they can also be upgraded and relocated
6. This is more of a pet peeve but one of the things I loved about this game was that the whole lighting of the rooms made sense and wasn't overwhelming to the eyes, also I love how your character just makes a flashlight out of themselves, while funny to think about, it's very functional
7. The action menu, yeah the one that like makes you go like in slow mo, it's nice

-Bad things:
1. Your hitbox, in comparison to the enemies' is huge, like you could be meters away from an Ice Spirit and they'd still would hit you if they are using the ice wave spell... thing... yeah you know which
2. The warrior stance is kinda useless? I mean it's very useful for when you are fighting enemies weaker than you, but in game there's no such thing unless you grind for three days straight you might be onto par with what you're facing
3. The guardian flame and the fire wave spells are also pretty useless, since with the burning weapon you are inflicting the most damage in the same time and the fireball is the only long ranged attack that does a passable ammount of damage (the bow's not that good, prehaps not for me as I never actually used it but because I prefer up close combat)
4. Merchants in general are over priced but like VERY overpriced
5. No fast travel so you have to go from point A to point B facing the same respawning enemies
6. Fire resistance sort of useless too
7. You can only save different gameslots once you arrive to Valvenor I think

II. Visuals
-Good things:
1. I love the loading screens, themselves make the whole wait worth it and are very stylish
2. The cutscenes are very well animated, in fact better than the game sometimes, so I don't know if it's good or bad because sometimes it reminds me to PS1 and PS2 games in that aspect
3. FINALLY AN ACTION GAME THAT HAS A PALLETTE THAT ISN'T JUST BROWN (although if anything it's very common throughout the game sooo)
4. The in-game menus look very nice and contrasts very well

-Bad things:
1. Wierd lightning, like in dungeons and caves you can barely see anything, but in midday, specially in icy areas such as Steppes of Caraldthas and Blackfrost's Domain, the atmosphere is too bright
2. The models look a bit clunky
3. Reusing the same enemies, I put this on visuals because I feel they could've just given another model to certain enemies but keep the same mechanics working and it would be fixed, but like, it just feels dull, I mean they even reuse bosses as normal enemies later on, again, it's just due to aesthetics

III. Story/Dialogue
-Good things:
1. The characters, I mean personally I found myself liking the characters more than I did about the story
2. Branching paths that determine your relationships with each character that also involves quests (though one flaw of this is that they can't really hate you unless you choose between Edwen or Rhelmar)

-Bad things:
1. The dialogues from time to time are very cheesy or flat out gritty mc edgy
2. The lip syncing could get a little more work
3. The story is very meh, but I feel as if this could also be a good thing, because let's say Sonic the Hedgehog, I mean sure the first games were like "Dr. Robotnik wants to take over the world, go stop him" they were safer that way, because no one actually plays it for the story, but more recent games for example Sonic '06 just complicates itself too much "Sun god wants to take over the world but his daughter, the princess can't cry but if she would everything would be okay, also you are a hedgehog that rescues her and she kisses you but like not really anyways" which is, to say the least bad. Though I do feel like this type of game would be fit to have a more complex story, although it's not all that swallow for quests add a bit to it
4. The romance options aren't unisex. C'mon guys, this is 2016 (well at least it came out by 2014) but come on. It's a good game but why the f*ck can't I romance neither Rhelmar nor Randval with a male character? I spent ten f*cking hours or more trying to kill the two concubines with Rhelmar's weak *ss to "assist me". And what do I get???? Nothing. Like seriously guys, it's the twentiethfirst century y'all why can't I have a gay romance?
5. Needs more Mathras

Like I just hope you guys could like patch these things soon enough, or maybe even fix it with a sequel... well maybe not a sequel, itself the game's story feels complete, maybe a spin off or something

While it's not the most amazing game in the world, it really is a lot of fun. I'm a huge RPG fan, so I like games ranging from Baldur's Gate to Neverwinter Nights to Dragon Age: Inquisition. I bought this game to try it out because it looked like fun, it was an RPG like Dragon Age, and, well, I'm a sucker for romancing NPC party characters, which it promised to let you do. It's got some flaws, such as your character being bland and cussing a lot as well as linear world settings and creatures spawning like they're in a dungeon and your character dying a lot due to stupid things like the battle AI and weird voice acting mixed with a limited amount of dialogue, but it's fun. I like talking to some of the characters and learning their back stories. I like the idea of deciding between being a messed up human with a demon inside you or turning into a demon. The storyline is pretty cool; drew me in enough to get 20 hours of gameplay out of me. I like the battle system where you get to choose three types of classes and then mix em all to beat up the enemies. I like that you can craft potions and items and do get chances to befriend/romance/enemy characters that you meet. It's quite a strange game. It's got it's flaws and it's got good things about it that set it apart from other games. As my husband calls it: it's an Indie Dragon Age and I kinda agree with it. Don't let reviews prevent you from trying out the game. I love it enough to consider playing it a lot more, so I think you should try it too if you love RPGs like me.

Just finished a first play through, but I completed it more out of stubborness than anything else!

Controls feel like an exercise in frustration a lot of the time, and while there's a mix of combat skills and fire magic, frankly it becomes apparent very early on that the Ranger path is the only one worth taking at all.

Story was decent if generic, characters interesting enough if also generic, dialogue was quite amusing in parts, but not enough to redeem it.

Overall, I think I'd have to rate it 5/10. Certainly not the worst game I've ever played, but didn't quite live up to the potential for me.

This game managed to quickly convince me that the outcome of a fight does not depend on lucky button bashing, or overpowered skills. Playing this game I was actually in control of how the character fights. It is an awesome mix of controls that allows players to actually play their way. Choose between fast paced melee, sluggish crushing melee, ranged attack and magical spells. You make actual choices in the game that changes who your immediate allies are. I was blown away by the game's ambitious take on a classic RPG genre. Whether your choices have long lasting end of game outcomes, I will not state for spoiler's sake.
