Default Inquisitor - An RPG Gem

February 14th, 2013, 02:23
Hello Watchers.

Just wanted to take a moment and shine a light on this little gem of a game called Inquisitor.

Seems like not many folks have played this game. It doesn't seem too popular for some reason. I could barely find a review of it online. The metacritic only has 3 or 4 professional reviews and 1 user review. Wow. I expected more people would have an opinion on this game…

Anyway, if you're thinking about playing this game, I would definitely recommend it. But only play this game if you like lots of text dialog, a dark, religious world, using your brain a little bit, taking your time and playing with patience. If those things sound interesting to you, then try this game. You won't regret it.

Like I said, there's lots of text, but I find it very well written and interesting to read. The best part about the dialog is that you never know who to really trust. You have to consider the motives of the person telling you the information. Are they lying to you? Are they just misinformed? You never really know until you dig a little deeper and start putting the clues together. The game is like a Sherlock Holmes mystery case and you figure it out as you go. It's absolutely unique and I've never played anything quite like it.

Everything else in the game such as the combat, character customization, skills, magic, etc, is done very well, but you really want to play this game for the story. The combat is intertwined perfectly with the story and the game evolves at a beautiful pace. The story really keeps you hooked. And there's tons of loot to sift through, chests to open, barrels to break and orc heads to trade to the local sheriff for gold .

I could go on and on about it but these are mostly early impressions as I've only played the game for a week or so. So I'll just stop here and definitely recommend playing it to anyone reading this. It's only $15 on GOG so you should definitely pick up a copy and try it out. If you do, let me know what you think about it in this thread.

Thanks for reading. And thank you Cinemax for making a great game.
