Warhammer 40.000: Inquisitor - Martyr is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the PC release has been around since 05 June 2018. Maybe the game will be more playable on gamepads, but don't get your hopes up too soon.

Neocore Games and Bigben have successfully ported their not-so-successful take on Warhammer 40,000 universe to consoles. The game will be priced at $49,99 / €49,99 / £33.99 for standard edition but it will also have deluxe edition that adds the Imperial Decoration, Skull trail and the Skulldust Emote.

Before deciding to throw extra money at the game though, you might want to consult reviews in order to decide what exactly you should throw. Neocore Games is best known for their work on The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, which was also an action RPG but it actually had proper pacing.

Reviewers as well as disgruntled players have repeatedly slammed Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr for terrible pacing, useless cover system, confused progression and meaningless itemisation. The sad part is, if you take a look at the game's Steam page , these systems are supposed to be the its selling point.

Anyway, the game has still managed to lean on the favourable reviews' side, standing at 61 per cent positive reviews from players who bought Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr as well as 7.3 user score and 68 out of 100 critic score on Metacritic.

Those who left positive reviews often cite multiplayer as being the game's strong point, but even the positive reviews can't refrain from citing the aforementioned flaws. You can also see that Warhammer 40K fans who tried the game really wanted to like it, but the developer didn't make their task one bit easier.

Then again, if you just want to jump into some comfy inquisitorial shoes and spill some xeno, demon and heretic blood, Warhammer 40.000: Inquisitor - Martyr might still be the game for you. It's a mouthful though and I'm honestly thinking that at this tempo, Warhammer game names will be longer than their games.
