The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a Hack 'N' Slay RPG.
You are Van Helsing, a monster hunter.
On your site is a hot evil ghost called Katarina.
You traveled into a region called Borgova.
Something evil is happening there and you have to find out what it is.
Your way leads you through cities, forests, caves and many more things just to find the person who is responsible for everything.
The gameplay is nice. Its like other Hack 'N' Slays like Diablo or Torchlight but it has a dark steampunk touch.
I really like the whole design of the game, beats Diablo and Torchlight in my opinion.
There is an incredible amount of weapons and accessoires.
The game has a typical level up system which gives you skillpoints everytime you level up.
Some items are also only usable when having a certain level.
Furthermore there are bonuses for finishing certain quests like killing 100 werewolves or whatever.
You can choose some bonuses from time to time.
Nearly everything is also supported by Katarina.
The enemy varity is pretty much actually.
There are several groups of enemies and those have always different levels.
Masters are the most dangerous. There are also veterans and others.
Also there are some bosses ingame.
People in the world might give you quests from time to time, nothing special but gives you a lot of loot.
Loot is the best about this game anyway. Its addicting collecting loot.
The difficult is higher than usual I think, at least I died several times even with using healing mage and a lot of potions.
I played on Normal. I personally skilled myself on far fight. Isnt easy though because the monster approach you very fast.
The Graphics are good for a game of that sort, nothing special though.
But I really liked the whole design especially of the forest.
It will also run on older PCs.
I also have to say that the music of the game is really nice.
I read that there is a soundtrack avaiable, but only for the second game.
Should include the music from the first game too, I read.
The game also has some sort of Multiplayer, didnt looked into it until now though.
It has Coop which is nice, I will probably try it sometime.
I have to say that I didnt awaited a lot of this game but I really started to love it.
Its addicting and has a interesting story and design.
Definitely a good game for Hack 'N' Slay fans.
I will probably buy the second game earlier or later.
I will give the game 8/10 points.
