The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing – REVIEW

Graphics (Environment 9/10, Models 7/10) 8/10
Animations 7/10
Sound 6/10
Music 8/10
Story 6.5/10
Gameplay 6.5/10
Inovation 7/10
TOTAL SCORE 7

  • Graphics

    On all max settings this game looked very nice. Environments and most models of the enemy creatures were designed pretty well, but sadly the characters of people felt 'just' boring.

  • Animations

    The animated events that happened while playing were nicely done, but that can't be said for animations of your character, Katarina and other enemies, which felt too repetitious, harsh and halting, that definitely spoiled the feeling of a smoother and more efficient gameplay.


  • Sound & Music

    The voice acting and other sounds in this game were mostly bad and disappointing, but the soundtrack was good and enjoyable.

  • Story

    Even the Blizzard's Diablo, with its all magnificence in every aspect, sometimes fell short in the story, so there's not much to say about the story of Van Helsing. I completed the first chapter which seemed really short with a main story that wasn't any special (with a few side quests). Second chapter put me in exploring of a steampunk city called Borgova, which I personally found a little better. But because of bad gameplay mechanics and other repetitive elements were 13 hours spent in the game just enough for me to get an overall impression and write a review.

  • Gameplay

    Many players complained about the difficulty of this game, which is really hard even on normal settings! But the problem isn't just in some ridiculously 'strong' enemies, but in the hordes that attack you all at once. That's when the game of a cat and mouse begin, which really spoils the charm of your gameplay and feels totally unbalanced.

    If you have ever played Dota 2 or (to be more fair and precise) Diablo III or some other quality hack'n'slash rpgs and truly experienced (mastered?) their gameplay, than you should know how far superior are their gameplay mechanics to the game like The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. It definitely tries and has some new cards in its hands, but it doesn't come really close.


  • Conslusion

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing has some new ideas and approaches in this genre and some of its parts are done pretty well, but on the other hand lacks of some vital and more polished details that would make this game a truly unique gaming experience ...

Replay value: This game was built for it, but in my opinion: NO.

Recommended: Yes, but ONLY ON SALE!

Great game! Action, humor and addictive gameplay with lots of loot to collect. Katarina is the best companion and I love the theme song also.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is, first and foremost, engaging.

It offers you classic hack-n-slash experience, well-written story with humorous dialogues, detailed world, nice graphics and good music. The mechanics aren't very original, and neither is the story - but it doesn't strive to be; the game clearly aims for enjoyment, and dry humour with multiple hidden (or not ;)) references to other games proves to be fun.

I sincerely recommend this game if you like the genre, but also if you seek for an enjoyable experience :)
