Before I begin I have only had about 25-30 solid game hours in the new release, so this is mild concern which might develope into a epideitisc opera of my lament.
BUT, The Assassin-class is unique and well thought-out. Even more so for the "youngest" class, psyker. And let me just say that those classes have pretty much blown my expectations out of the water. So good job Neocore.
Yet, there are... in theory... three classes in this game. I could now go on a pointless rant and point at all the different things the other classes have, and crusader does not; that would be to miss the point completly. I want the other two classes to be unique and "their own". Thats why is feels like a bummer when the Crusaders uniqness is " you are not unique in any way".
I really hope I am just looking the fool here when NeoCore, midway through the game, has an epic cut-scene where the crusader is so bad-ass he is using Vortex-missiles for darts. But please NeoCore, I'm not saying you have to make the class top of the food-chain. Hell you can still make it the worst class by a mile as long as it feels like a crusader and some traits it can actually call its own.
