Dark, gritty and superb

Following in the footsteps of RPGs like Geneforge, Ultima and Baldur's Gate comes this fine fantasy adventure. It's very much an old-school take on the genre and might not be for everyone as it is hard as nails, but if you're willing to persevere, there's much to enjoy here. The player is thrust into a darkly religious world and becomes embroiled in a complex plot revolving around betrayal, faith and temptation, and it's your job as an inquisitor to root out a heresy that threatens to tear the land apart. This translates into an open world RPG, where you must investigate the signs of the heresy, seek out those responsible and extract a confession before it's too late. The game is very open-ended and allows you to play as you want, while presenting lots of intriguing moral choices. There is also a stackload of customization options to play with, including character classes, weapons, items and both allowed and forbidden magic. Inquisitor really is a superb old-school RPG. It's got so much depth to it that you will be playing for hundreds of hours, and it's very easy to get sucked into its wonderfully realized and very grim world. It isn't an easy game, and you can expect to do a lot of reading, as there are lots of conversation trees to navigate, but the story and writing are so good, you probably won't mind. The visuals are pretty cool too, with some nicely atmospheric environments and slick character work, while the combat is deep and satisfying. If you're looking for a real game to lose yourself into, this has to be top of the list.
