hey kids, do you like Diablo? Do you like killing thousands of enemies with magic and swords? Want to try it with a guns in the 41st century in a space setting? If you said yes to all or most of these questions than Warhammer 40k Inquisitor Martyr might be for you. Just do not try to say the name three times fast, there is a reason people write and say 40k as opposed to forty thousand. Can any of you think of a longer name off the top of your head?
Insanely long name aside Warhammer from Bigben interactive ( PC version was by Neocore games) is of course of the Action RPG genre and much like Diablo will see you running around kill insane amounts if stuff to find better gear to better kill insane amounts of stuff. That is not to say this game is exactly like Diablo, far from in fact. They are just similar in style in some areas.
Graphically the game won’t win any awards, but the ship looks good and the character models are nice. My time with the ,didn’t see any major glitches or issues, so don’t expect any Mass Effect Andromeda type things happening. The voice acting was well done and I enjoyed it tho some people may feel differently as that sort of thing can be subjective at times. I also enjoyed the ever-changing maps that thankfully change constantly using prefabricated parts.
Now for the downside, for starters I wasn’t a fan of the inventory system, that being said most inventory systems seem pretty cumbersome in these games and at this point it is just the nature of the beast. The same can be said for the very repetitive combat system. While the effect of the various skills look nice they won’t make up for the fact that at times I felt like I was simply mashing buttons while working my way through a truck load of enemies for no other reason than to get better gear. This isn’t so much an issue with Martyr as it is the genre as a whole and there isn’t anything that can be done about it to be truthful, it is just something to be aware of.
Now the reason you are all here, should you buy this game? In all honesty I would not. I won’t tell you not to tho. It is an average game and fans of the genre will enjoy it I think. Its PC counterpart has pretty average reviews and I expect the Xbox one and PS4 will get the same. From me? 7/10 an average game that fans of the genre will probably like, but probably wait for a sale or rent it.
One final note, I played this game based off a Review copy provided by the company which I am eternally grateful for. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
