This game is worth twice the price. A great ARPG.
The skill trees are interesting and probably my favorite of any RPG I've ever played.
Your companion is strong and valuable but not OP.
Script is EXCELLENT
Voice-acting is EXCELLENT
Music is EXCELLENT
Art is EXCELLENT
If you play RPG I would recommend
If you play ARPG it's a must have.

I finished my 1st playthrough of Van Helsing the other day. It was pretty good, the graphics were fine (nothing great), the story was very average (the usual save the world from the bad-guy & his minions), & the gameplay was similar to Torchlight/Diablo ARPG's.
I ended up with 73/95 Achievements, & that's ok with me. To get them all you would need to do multiple playthrough's, & i wasn't impressed enough to want to replay it, maybe in another year or so.
All in all, it was a good game. I used a controller, & it worked fine. If you like ARPG's, i'd say give it a try, but don't expect an involved storyline. It's more loot collecting & monster killing, so if you like that sort of game, you'll like this.
Enjoy :)

It's a nice piece of a diablo-like game, but I don't have much words for it. I see it a little bit wearisome, running around holding left mouse button and every end of cooldown clicking on specail abilities, where from whole skill tree are only a few useful. This game is a real challenge if you overlook this deficiencies and try hardcore mode, there you gotta be very careful and the game starts to demand more use of your skills in strategy.

6/10

This game was gifted to me a little while ago, and I have to admit that although I found it a little slow to begin with, I am really starting to enjoy this game. If you're a fan of games like Diablo or Torchlight, I would recommend this.

Initial positive impression, as soon as I got into chapter 3 things went sour. Overall, not touching it again. TLDR on the bottom.

+ Decent storytelling, somewhat involved.
+ Comments from Lady Katarina are pretty amusing.
+ Good pacing, good attribute system, fairly decent itemization (by comparison, MILES ahead of Diablo 3).
- Little enemy variety, weird incoming damage at times.
- Skill variety on the Hunter class is extremely poor. A handful of reskinned shots, didn't really feel progression or much weight from using differerent skills. Same deal goes for the melee tree.
- BUGS. Oh the bugs. One of my hunter tricks crashed multiplayer games when I hosted, had to respec / avoid using skill to keep playing. The "slow time" skill on the Thaumaturge often bugged entire maps, lasting forever and then on a second cast engaging turbo mode. Random client crashes every 20-30 minutes.

TLDR: The game is not entirely bad, but does not warrant a positive review. If you want the hack and slash experience and don't mind restarting the game every 30 minutes or so, go ahead. It's built on a solid foundation, but lacks the necessary polish to be a true contender in this genre.
