'Bound by Flame' Opinions (No Spoilers)

5 posts in this topic

I saw SO many reviews of this saying how bad it is. That's why I didn't get it until now. The only reason that I got it today is because it was the last fantasy rpg unplayed by me for the Xbox 360 (that I know of). And I want to exhaust my 360 options before moving on to Xbox One.

 

Anyway, I was actually surprised. I'm in Act 2 and really enjoying this game! I have never seen a good review of this game and yet I think it's pretty good.

 

- I like the flexible class system, the humour, the story so far.

 

- I like how the mini map can open up to a full map, semi-transparent, and you can run around with it open, and switch back with ease.

 

- The button placement off every action (combat, potions, equipment, interaction etc) is perfect.

 

- Crafting is very easy to follow.

 

- I like that the elves can have beards, it's just a nice change haha

 

- There's a big variety of enemies

 

- I love games that include companions, so there's that.

 

- Oh, and the music! Holy fuck, yas. The music.

 

Does anyone else not hate this game? Or do you think it's terrible, like the reviews say?

 

NO SPOILERS - as the title says, for me and also for anyone else curious about the game. 😊💞💗💖

I did get a free copy with XBox Live Gold a month or two ago but I haven't played it yet and may never do so.  I've seen the same negative reviews and some positive ones to but I've never really like any game with this kind of "Souls" style gameplay, I just find them slow and repetitive.  I'll probably get round to it at some point to see for myself but more because of my own personal experience with similar games I'm not optimistic.

I believe you're thinking of "Lords of the Fallen", but the games are kind of easy to mix up I suppose.

 

Anyway, like you Lhouraii, I've always been interested in this game but reviews have put me off, so I've been waiting for a price drop, but haven't seen any deals.

Yeah, I got it for £10 ($14) buy one get one free (I got Nier free) from my local game shop! 😊

 

I honestly can't understand where all the hate for this game came from though - I hope you'll let me know your opinions once you play it 💖

Just completed the game! I loved it but it's VERY short! 

 

Therefore, if you don't like it, there isn't much to suffer through haha

 

I love the music though! I will be listening to the soundtrack for a long while! 💞💗💖
