    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.

    NeocoreGames masterfully channels the grimdark atmosphere of Warhammer, but the actual gameplay is very barebones. There are three different classes, but they play pretty much the same, and most of the perks only add 1% to this or 1,5% to that. Oh, and that "open-world sandbox" you see on Martyr’s Steam page? It actually means "procedurally generated missions with simplistic objectives." [Issue#231, p.60]

    Warhammer 40.000: Inquisitor - Martyr is a nice attempt to create an immersive adventure in its universe. Although beautiful in its craft it fails to create a smooth ARPG game. Some ideas, and some classes, just feel a bad design choice since the beginning of pre-production.

    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.

    I created an account here just to write this review and warn people.
    So it started when i went on here (metacritic.com) to check the reviews for this game and then i bought it and had high hopes that this game would be the game to end my diablo 3 days. i was so, so wrong. this is the first product i have ever requested a refund for on steam (having over 300 games). I am a veteran of the ARPG genre, having over 4,000 hours logged in diablo 3, PoE, and Torchlight. I will explain, in detail what is so bad about this game. (i got to lvl 12 btw)

    1) First off (and my biggest issue) is that the characters aren't what determine your skills. so i picked a sniper character thinking 'oh cool, ill be able to level up my snipe skills and get really good at going in cloaked and then surprise attacking!' nope. the skills are attached to the weapons that you swap out every mission for upgraded weapons, and there's no way to upgrade those skills. the only things that you have upgrades to are a really weird skill tree system that gives you small non-game-changing bonuses like +1% dmg. cause ya know, that's fun.
    If you get lucky you can find a weapon with a set of skills that your really like, like the sword i got had a leap with a poison AoE, but then i was stuck using that weapon and didn't want to swap out for the weapon that i knew was better, and had higher dmg and power level. really seems like the core of the game was made wrong.

    2) second reason is that the game feels extremely slow. the hack & slash game play of the great ARPGs is not present in this game. you start a level where you walk very slowly through hallways (they say this is tactical) and pick off very small groups of enemies (groups of about 2-3). and after about 20 minutes of this, you eventually run into an elite guy that can take a few shots. this guy isn't fun either though.. you can either just LoS (line of sight) him until you wither him down, or just face tank him because he doesn't actually hit hard (even on hard difficulty). If you happen to encounter a boss enemy you might actually get to use your skills!

    3) third reason is the loot... or i should say the lack of loot. it really feels like they just put random colors on the items and had them be generated from a pool of randomly selected stats with no balance. like i said before i come from the diablo 3 community and it seems like there should be certain stats on certain items and not on other items, but instead, i got grenades that regenerate my health. yeah that makes sense. also the rate at which loot drops seems very low.

    4) fourth reason is enemy variation. i know the destiny games got made fun of for this, but this game is a lot worse. there's about 12 different enemies that I've fought in my time playing the game, and about 8 of them die in 1 hit before they can even act, so then we are left with those things that just look like strongmen wearing leather vests and the big robot walkers that shoot missiles. if you like only fighting these 2 things, this game is for you!

    5) fifth reason not to get this game is that you cant play the missions that you want to play, co-op. if you initiate the co-op computer (its literally a thing on your ship) it plops you into a random mission where you just kill all the baddies. no progression on story. no choices.

    i will say this. the game has really nice graphics - like where the bosses shoot missiles that track to you, so ill give this game 3 points for the graphics and 1 point for the fact that the game actually works and doesn't crash/isn't buggy. other than that though, if you are an experienced ARPG player, this is not the game for you. the leveling feels like a slog and the rewards for leveling just aren't there.
    if you are just a warhammer 40k fan, then please by all means try the game out. it is stylized the way i expect warhammer games to be. but don't think that this is how all ARPGs are.
