    Inquisitor Martyr is a great game despite the occasional technical flaw. There’s no shortage of mission, weapon and enemy variation within, making for a Diablo-like experience that’s faithful to the source material. Support for local and online co-op is present, though, regardless as to whether you go into this as a solo player or with friends, Inquisitor Martyr’s engaging gameplay will keep you firmly entertained.

    If you are looking for a different aRPG experience than usual, this can be a very good option. The strength of the Warhammer atmosphere offers a change in the usual mechanics, giving a wide range of options to tackle tactical action. It is not perfect, but its campaign, the procedural generated quests and the cooperative multiplayer give enough to enjoy it.

    Warhammer 40000 Inquisitor Martyr gives us a game that despite not being the best in performance, it does guarantee us a lot of hours of fun through a system of missions that could have no end, and with the possibility of playing them in cooperation with friends.

    There are plenty of enjoyable elements to be had but with repetition proving heavy throughout, you have to be prepared for the grind to really get the most out of this Warhammer-RPG.

    Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor Martyr (told you the name was ridiculous) is a solid game that I had a lot of fun with…once I got past its blemishes. A patch or two and this game might be a must-own for ARPG fans. Right now though, it is hard to recommend due to its hindrances.

    An enjoyable enough adventure through Warhammer 40K’s dark future that never quite manages to exhilarate you.

    I wanted to like this marriage of Warhammer and action-RPG. Really like it. And initially I did, but the honeymoon was over pretty damn quickly. The hotel room was nasty and bug infested. The food invaried and bland. And the wife who looked so radiant on the day, lost most of her appeal when her skills and abilities were found to be lacklustre and severely limited.

The game is both fun playing on your own and with friends and I’m pleased to say that the online components hold up really well throughout.
    In terms of content the game has a decent amount for you to get to grips and you will no doubt return back to this game time and time again. You can do a lot of customisation to your character and taking them into battle very rarely gets dull because the combat is pretty decent. Each element in the game combines together really well and I was pleased that they didn’t try to make doing certain things too complicated. There isn’t really anything wrong with the presentation side of the game I just felt it to be a little boring and nothing much stood out here. The story may be good in parts but overall it failed to keep me interested and I’ve seen better. Does Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr do enough to get a recommendation from me? Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr has had its release day pushed back several times on the Xbox One and whilst this was pretty frustrating I’m kinda glad that they did because they’ve released a game that has very few problems and it offers you a smooth experience throughout. The smooth experience though isn’t the highlight of the game for me though because I’ve reserved that for the variety the game has. I’m not exaggerating when I say that every aspect of the game has variety and when you combine that variety with the game’s different elements you end up having a very enjoyable experience even when you play on your own. I would however recommend that you play this game with friends because this is when the gameplay truly shines and thankfully I’m pleased to say that the game doesn’t have many problems at all when played online. This then means that Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr gets a big thumbs up from me because it goes about everything the right way.

    Purchased this specifically because they touted local coop. Yeah... having P2 be a random character with no customization? And having to bePurchased this specifically because they touted local coop. Yeah... having P2 be a random character with no customization? And having to be always online even to play solo??? HARD pass.
    This was touted as Diablo 3 meets 40k.

    Diablo 3 at least has real coop.
    4 player local, no need to be online.

    I would have been better off burning the money I wasted on this.

    The game feels more like a very long concept demo rather then a fully fleshed game. The

    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.
