    Warhammer 40K Inquisitor Martyr has fantastic gameplay that's complimented by great combat and missions. There are a few bugs and framerate problems, but the skills tied to weapon mechanics add a brilliant way to switch up combat until you find your set.

    Far from being a perfect product, Warhammer 40.000: Inquisitor - Martyr is however a versatile and enjoyable title both by fans of the genre and, above all, by lovers of the boundless background of reference.

    Νeocore uses all of its accumulated experience -gained from the Van Helsing franchise- and delivers a complete action/ RPG, faithful to the source material and accompanied by a tight storyline. Not all of the gameplay ideas were implemented successfully (i.e. the cover system), but genuinely tries to gust fresh air in an already over-saturated genre.

    Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is mostly a good title that comes with some innovative ideas, but falls short in other areas regarding its performance and level design. Warhammer 40k fans will get a kick out of it, and its long life through random missions means content is in hundreds of hours for people who enjoy working towards the highest achievements. Others will eventually grow bored of the repetition, but will easily have gained enough hours out of the title to not be short changed.

    Neocore offers a fascinating story based on the universe of Warhammer 40,000, but wastes his chance with a heavily imperfect technical system.

    The ever-increasing level requirements force players to grind. These side missions are all too similar in their look and design. Varied, exciting combat could have been the game’s saving grace, but, alas, it leaves a lot to be desired.

    Though the idea of a Warhammer 40K themed ARPG certainly seems appealing, Martyr largely fails to capitalize on this potential due to unfocused design, clumsy gameplay and an abundance of technical and performance issues, despite boasting strong audio-visual presentation.

If you are scared of something new, don't bother;All your warhammer fantasies come true, this one is a blast and only going to get better. If you are scared of something new, don't bother; sanity is for the weak!

    The game is beautiful (in that horrid desolate way) but there are definitely some bugs. if you are a warhammer 40k fan like me and you actually played the table top game...youll be excited as to how true they stick to the core elements of the game. From mastercraft weapons, to slowed movement using two handed or heavy weapons versus one handed and beyond. Lot's of people have been complaining about the cover system but i've enjoyed it. Not only because it's a critical element of the original game but also because it adds an interesting characteristic to fighting, whether you are hiding behind it or kiting enemies around it.

    Every weapon has a play style and every class can be played and specced to a play style synchronously.

    Slow is nice, you get to feel your weapons and you have to play tactically to your equipment.

    A huge thing this game has is fully designed rooms and open path maps. Not just maze style dungeons with N entrances and N exits and N paths between so they can maintain a single camera angle. I love the fact that you can utilize camera angle and it actually becomes a necessary part of the gameplay unlike most other ARPG's

    The atmosphere, story, weapons and characters are perfect and ultimately capture every essence of Warhammer 40k. Progression looks promising. I like that your skill tree defines how your character plays and feels not just the abilities your character is ultimately boxed into using.
    Loot is well provided, bosses guarding chests and plenty of good loot. Bosses are difficult and so is the majority of the gameplay.

    My biggest gripe is that i end up at the "base" after every mission when I want to just seamlessly move from mission to mission and there are some wonky animations.

Game has improved GREATLY in all aspects (graphics, character & armor models, speed & smoothhness) since last Early Access build, btw. Absolutely love it. Expand

    Update: 06/17/2018
    Many of the crucial aspects have yet to be remedied and the launch of the first 'community event' is a catastrophe of immense proportions. Even though the community has some how almost reached the ludicrous goal of 50 million kills on missions that barely pass 150/ each leaves me speechless.

    The goal of 5k per player is even more insane, that's almost 50 missions over the span of one weekend; adults have jobs and lives outside of hobbies; I sincerely wish Neocore would consider this when creating 'community events'. I would like to see the numbers and accounts associated with them, I have a strong feeling that the numbers are being spoofed.

    I am still working through the game, but this is my initial impression, it is good. However, it is not perfect, ranging from forgivable minor errors that can, and likely will be, worked out to glaring and egregious errors. The primary reason behind my rating is the online only requirement, it is both an annoying and limiting disappointment. I immensely agree with Thelgor140's review.

    I understand their reasons, but it doesn't change the fact that it negatively impacts my experience as a player that is just trying to enjoy the game. Monster Hunter World handles this much better; I would appreciate an "opt-in/out" feature. Play online some days, others, just go and purge some Heretics. I hope they find a way around this because this is something that annoys me significantly and is actually what gives this game a 7.

    The lore is good, the story is okay so far––but justified by the lore––so good and immersive, could be better.

    Being that we're Inquisitors, I would imagine a bit of customization being possible/ if not male/female variants and some basic customization just for the sake of variety. We're not Astartes, Imperial Guards nor the Sisters of Battle. We are what they fear, we are the Inquisition. Most lore makes out many Inquisitors being eccentric in their own rights, from appearances to demeanor. From Puritanical Lawful Enforcers of the Emprah's Will , to radical ends-justify-the-means protectors of humanity.

    Just, Eisenhorn. If you're looking for a good book, Eisenhorn. There is other material, but this is a good entry point to the lore, other than the Dark Heresy Pen and Paper games by Fantasy Flight Games––I sincerely hope the GW works with them again––which I play and love.

    And about Dark Heresy, each of the three (so far) playable classes are archetypes found in Dark Heresy's core rule book.

    I will get back to this when I have more time into it.

    The game feels more like a very long concept demo rather then a fully fleshed game. The
    itemization is the worst I have ever seen in ARPG, seems that the only thing that matters is quality (ilvl in other games) and not actual stats. Sometimes you get to a point where for several levels the items can roll exactly the same stats ranges but the quality level raises anyway?!?. It is a broken game, I really regret having bought it full price. There are other things like bugs and the very small and boring maps. Save money and time, play something else.
