Depends what you value in an FPS. However unless you are playing mage you will be doing limited shooting.

There is such a big focus on melee combat that calling it an FPS feels a bit weird. There are guns in it but I think you would spent most of your time carving up the raki hordes with an assortment of melee weapons.

Gierka jest jednym słowem "zajebista" !!! Jak nie miałeś okazji zagrać, to dużo tracisz. Jak zagrałeś i po chwili twierdzisz, że nie podoba Ci się, to musisz zagrać z innym graczem, który już trochę pograł i zobaczysz co to jest "dobra rozgrywka".

Does Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide feel grindy?

It depends what you are doing. If you are playing purely to get a specific item and re-run the same level over and over then yes. If you vary the levels not really.

It can feel grindy if you are grinding for equipment. The first time you run through the main campaign, or a DLC campaign, you would be doing missions one after the other, with fairly varied objectives spread out.

How fair are loot drops in Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide?

The way the game does loot is fairly decent. If there is something that you want, you could get it randomly, but there is a crafting system in place which will allow you to get pretty much any weapon with any upgrades you want by putting in the time.

There are an extra rare tier of unique weapons, which you can't craft, but if you don't get them through the random dice system, you can often wait for them to appear as a quest on the bounty board, and then unlock them using daily missions.

at the end of a SUCCESSFUL run you roll 7 dice. There are collectables you can find in levels to improve your dice rolls by altering what you require on individual dice

How gory is Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide?

Similar levels to left 4 dead

It can be very gory.

Blunt weapons (1 handed and 2 handed hammers mainly) can burst skulls of the ratlings, and throw their ragdolling carcasses all over the place.

Swords and axes are able to cut limbs and heads off, and bigger two handed weapons can even cut ratlings completely in half.

There are also ways to set your enemies on fire, causing them panic and you may even blow up the ratlings completely with explosives.

It adds a bit to the WHFB lore. The lore for that is very, very extensive.
