Spiders’ Bound By Flame could have been something great. Every show we saw the game at had us believing this could be the studio’s breakout RPG. But at those shows, we only saw the game… we never played it. That should have been our first warning. Bound By Flame is a generic, poorly designed, and almost offensive experience that I would only recommend ever picking up when it’s $5 or less during a Steam Sale. And only then if you have a morbid sort of curiosity about bad games. I played on the PC version, with both the mouse and keyboard and the Xbox 360 controller. I was provided a copy by the studio for review purposes.
