I have nothing to back this up, but I honestly think a lot of the Emma reviews are shill reviews as part of an aggressive advertising campaign. Of course there will be people who have bought it, and loved it, but the reviews being so overwhelmingly positive, for the type of product that most people would never bother to write a review about in the first place, leaves me feeling something's not quite right.
It also seems expensive for a 'mattress in a box' (my general rule of thumb is if the mattress can be rolled up and fit in a box, it's not going to offer great long term support). It also seems to have perpetual 'sales' on it.
For what it's worth, I used to work in a shop that sold mattresses. If you're looking for a good, firm mattress, the Respa Back Care Supreme is amazing. I'm about 21 stone, and I've been using it for about 5 years, and it still seems brand new in every way. As far as Respa mattresses go, it's not the cheapest, but a 5ft is still cheaper than the Emma.
It is a very firm mattress though.
My honest advice would be to spend some time wandering around shops. I'm not sure how covid affects mattresses, but I wouldn't like to buy a mattress without having had the chance to lie on it, first. I find mattresses that are too soft can be a bit uncomfortable, and take too long to adapt to.

I am doing some research on mattresses online and Emma seems to be there on everyone's list. So, was wondering if it's really worth the money or is it just a marketing gimmick?
I am looking for a firm king-size mattress.

I hated it. And it was an awful process to return it.
