Spiders' upcoming fantasy-based RPG, Bound by Flame, just got a hot new combat trailer. At least that's one everyone says. To my dismay, while the combat is of a style that suits my tastes -- being fast-paced and full of action -- the characters seem to lack any "oomph" to their attacks. Yes, I'm going to be 'that guy'.

The trailer shows off some customization as well as live gameplay on what players can expect. But for a game designed around the combat system -- where players will go around absorbing power trying to get stronger -- the trailer doesn't seem to show any true power. Honestly, it looks like the character is doing no damage even though I'm sure he is. Big point reduction for immersion there. Perhaps they're holding back the cool stuff for later levels but when you show me something as big as combat aspects, I feel a reveal trailer should pack some more heat, even just a taste.

Bound by Flame is scheduled to release on May of 2014 for Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and Windows PC. Check out the trailer after the jump.
