Inquisitor reminds me of Diablo 2 in a lot of ways, but with some major differences. It looks good like Diablo 2 does. It plays almost the exact same, but it does stray from the Diablo 2 formula.
Inquisitor starts you out (after picking your class and such) in the small town of Hillbrandt. You are an Inquisitorial investigator, tasked with gathering evidence against Heretics. When you feel enough evidence is gathered you have to ask a Inquisitorial prosecutor for a warrant to arrest a Heretic. You can move up the ranks to a Inquisitorial judge, which then allows you to arrest and judge a trail on your own. A lot of the story comes from the conversations you have with the townspeople. You need to talk to them about everything so that you don’t miss any important information. The main aspect of the story is that the devil is about to be released from his prison and you need to stop or destroy him.
Inquisitor’s game play is really where it feels like Diablo 2. You pick from 3 different classes (yes I know there are more then that in Diablo 2): a paladin, a priest, and a thief. All 3 can learn spells but the priest will learn more knowledgeable spells. Paladins learn better melee combat, and thief’s are better at ranged combat. Your inventory is slotted where weapons and armor could take up between 3 to 8 squares. Potions and scrolls take up a square a piece. Unlike Diablo 2 you get 5 pages for your inventory. You can recruit members to your party to help you fight, and I will tell you this is a game where you want a party. The game is pretty difficult on medium, I’ve died probably over 30 times. Enemies swarm you from about every direction.
Inquisitor’s combat is simple you hover your mouse over an enemy and press the left mouse button to attack. The right mouse button is used for spells and skills. While paladin’s and thief’s have to use potions to restore mana, priest’s have a skill that can restore mana while sacrificing stamina. You will come across chests, barrels, and other hiding spots that house items for you to scavenge. You will battle horrible beasts such as: orcs, ogres, trolls, spiders, and other such demons.
Inquisitor is a great game all around. Its fun, difficult, and it has a lot of content. Inquisitor is worth picking up if you enjoy games like Diablo, or other point and click action games. Inquisitor comes with a load of bonus stuff when you buy it such as: an art book, a novel, wallpapers, avatars, and the soundtrack, because of all this I give Inquisitor 4.5/5.
