Sobre este jogo

It all seemed so simple: defeat the mad scientist, free the land and ride into the sunset, but sometimes the fall of a villain only opens the way to more sinister foes. So the incredible adventures continue, and Van Helsing, the famous monster-hunter returns to save the day again with the help of his charming, ghostly companion, Lady Katarina. The gothic metropolis of weird science is on the brink of destruction as chaos rules the streets and a new enemy plots revenge. It’s time to enter the dark side of Borgova and the forbidden wilderness, but beware: you are not the only one behind a mask.

Main features

  • Three playable classes – In the sequel to this gothic-noir adventure, you can choose from three very different classes: the classic Hunter with shooting and melee skills, the magic-wielding Thaumaturge or the Arcane Mechanic, the master of deadly devices, all included in the base game.

  • Hunter’s Lair – The Lair returns in the sequel as your perfect hideout to stash collected loot, trade with non-playable characters, teleport between locations, forge new items, utilize the alchemy lab and accept new quests from allies who join the Resistance against the scientific scourge.

  • Extended Tower defense mini-game – With enemies invading in waves, you have the opportunity to defend your Lair and other strategic locations with deployable traps and several upgradable functions to ward off evil, now with improved gameplay mechanics and up to 7 levels presented as optional side quests.

  • Resistance Management – As the leader of the Borgovian Resistance, you will participate in the micromanagement of the allied troops, improve the equipment of the Resistance fighters or find loot that makes them more powerful.

  • Rage system – You can charge up to three skill modifiers called PowerUps on 8 active skills by way of spending Rage points collected from impressive feats.

  • Unique companion – Lady Katarina, a ghost with snappy wit, comes to the support of Van Helsing with her own set of abilities, behaviors, and two skill trees.

  • Runecrafting – Besides forging, enchanting and infusing items with essences, you’ll have another option to alter items to your liking. Artifacts can be taken apart, shattered into magical fragments to be turned into purely magical runes that can be altered and put on new items, changing them into various new powerful artifacts.

  • The Beast in the Lair - The Chimera is a unique creature, an artificial monster straight from the Ink. You can enhance its abilities and summon it into combat or send away to the Ink to hunt for treasure.

  • Hall of Trophies - You can decorate the Lair with trophies that give global modifiers to the game world, like empowering monsters, granting more spellpower to all allies or turning Katarina into a more lethal ghost.

  • Multiplayer – You and your friends can test your skills against each other via the PVP mode (8 players) or join forces and complete the story in the co-operative campaign (4 players).

+) Even better mood compared to previous series.
+) Great use of monsters from previous series.
+) Igor doesn't blow up with poison after death.
+) While in defense mission, you can gain exp from killing monsters in addition to the reward.
+) Improvement on certain skills.
+) Going up and down has become smoother but it is still bad.

-) Time to time npcs speech is outside the screen, making the game look really sloppy.
-) In last mission two musics are being played at the same time. Also sloppy.
-) Monsters and terrain are synchronized too well. It is hard to distinguish them. If they didn't move it would've been horrible.
-) Too many things. They are totally unnecessary. Rage, Defense, Army management, and Chimera.
-) Artillery support was bad. There was no hot key for it and clicking once didn't work so you end up calling it on totally wrong places. Its range is that of your character's so you'll be getting hurt while doing it as well.

It is a 100% NO

The game does not start after clicking "Play" on Steam.
Some other people got the same. No Reply, no help.
Same problem found in Van Helsing I, but doesn't get fixed in the second game?
It's not a good experience.

I don't understand why this game is getting a lot of hate, people complaining about bugs are overreacting theirs no game breaking bugs I got stuck in one area and couldn't get out but i used the teleport ability and went back into the level it's not hard people, some say the game is downright laggy, only one area was like this and I'm pretty sure I know the reason for it (the rain), it's not even that bad once you progress further into the level. The game itself is brilliant! really enjoyed playing through it, if you can pick it up on a sale I recommend you do so.

Follow up to the first game, and yep, it's just what you expect. It's best to consider Part 1 and Part 2 to be two parts of the same big game. It's pretty, fun, and straightforward. It gets'er done. And it's really really gorgeous.

“Join the resistance, they said. It will be fun, they said. No one ever mentioned something about a doomsday device!”

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 contains all the best elements of the first game, and introduces novelties in form of bigger and more varied skill trees for all three classes and additional mini games, that contribute to the games atmosphere.

In comparison with its predecessor the general level of difficulty has been increased, resulting in a more challenging world of Borgovia, that is filled with original monsters, magic and weird technology. At the same time the skills of your ghostly companion have also been rebalanced, allowing her to support you in your preferred playstyle in a more effective way.

But the greatest strength of Van Helsing lies in its love for detail. Allusions to certain films, comics and the original book by Bram Stoker are proof of that. Furthermore, the protagonist and his delightful ghostly companion will keep you entertained with their wry sense of humor and many snappy dialogues.

Nevertheless, there are a few shortcomings. One of them is the stiff combat system, as already encountered in the first instalment, which would have needed more attention to establish a more fluent hack & slash feeling. Another point is the storyline. While building on the events of the predecessor, the presentation of the story feels rather loveless, making it relatively easy to predict certain story related events.

Trivia:

Please do not open the cell of the familiar looking psychopath with cannibalistic tendencies, who prefers Chianti to certain cuisine. Your fellow resistance fighters will be very grateful for it.

More of the same as the first one, so if you liked it a lot, you might possibly like second Van Helsing as well. But beware, there are no major changes to the game, it feels like more like a large DLC that continues the story than anything else.

Position In Game At Time Of Review: Have all my classes max leveled, have game & DLCs on 2 steam accts, got most of the sets epics and all godlikes, farming

After adding the first Van Helsing to one of the most favorite games I've ever played, VH2 only polished and added to the enjoyment where the first one left off. I was still playing the first one up to the release of this game and continued playing it during this one. But VH2 not only left off where the last story ended, but improved on tons of things to make this game even more enjoyable than the first. So with this in mind, I wrote a review for people new to the series as well as one for people who have played the first game and are considering getting this one.

Newcomers to the Van Helsing trilogy-
Even if you haven't played the first one, it would still be enjoyable to start with VH2. The reason for this is much like any other game, such as Borderlands 2. Playing the first one AFTER the second one will give you more depth in the story as well as make you appreciate all the changes that were done in the second game. Even though I would recommend playing the first one first, I don't see any spoilers at all in VH2 to the storyline of VH1. There are even items/gear that is reverse compatible ;) which you will probably think is pretty keen of the developers. Yes, it plays like Diablo 3, but that is by all means not a bad thing. But that comparison is very similar to saying Battlefield plays like CoD or MoH. And what about the "Gears of War" and "God of War" comparisons in other games. Yah, it's kinda like that :/ All in all, if you get VH2, you will be getting a great funny and very enjoyable RPG which you can co op up to 4 players as well as PvP. When you play it, you'll know it's going to be a great game from the photobomb on the title screen hahaha.

Ones who've played the first Van Helsing-
It may look like the same game but many things have been polished to fit customer satisfaction. For instance there are still 6 pages of storage, but now most of the gear takes 2 blocks instead of 3, and the storage space has been significantly expanded. So now there is over double the storage space of the first game. Along with the max level reaching 60 instead of 30, there are doubled the skills to mess around with! So you have the option of lvl10ing the skills and tricks you have ported over OR taking them off and starting a whole new tree of new abilities. Or you can even mix it. Oh yeah, as I stated, you can export over your powered up character from the first game :) The Chimera is not as powerful as it looks but is still a great addition as well as a little storyline within the sp story. Also the 'sets' and 'epics' have 'ink infested' versions which are level 60s. So even though you may have a complete set with the level ranges at 33 38 and 45, you can still farm for the all level 60 versions of that same set :)))) OMG, and wait until you get your first 'godlike' item!!! Besides that they just expanded on everything that made the first game so fun to play like: glory, perks, weapons & gear, laughs, easter eggs, tower defense, etc. The story, I would like to compare to The Matrix Reloaded. Not the best story, but essential in the trilogy and to any fan of the first game. It was also fun to play through with more boss fights and loot drops. So basically, I would definitely recommend this game if you've played through the first one even just once.

The DLCs-
I've written separate reviews on each DLC.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II
As the second sequel in a trilogy, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II does keep its pros from the previous game. Unfortunately, it also retains its con. Recommended as the cons are not really a game breaking.

Pro
  • Memorable companion*. Still loves her.
  • Quest system*. They have since added some additional quest involving Captains and Fluffy. Not really game affecting quest but it does makes an excuse for a little breather and a nice source of extra income and items/essences.
  • Tower defence mini game*. The traps are now improved with more choices. Still wish to be able to play this mini game on demand.
  • The skill systems are well made* but not perfect. It is now improved compared to the previous skill but still, my best skill is Scattering shot from the 1st game, and that is the skill that makes it easy to get past through most enemies.

Con
  • Artificial difficulty*. Come at me bro.
  • Some skills are still useless*. Nevertheless, they made few improvement regarding this. Single target skills generally have much higher damage and almost all skill will have a bit of a multi-target effect to it such as Ricochet.
  • Some bug and glitches can still be seen*. CTD when trying to place a rune on the create item slot. CTD when trying to refund Acid Puddle skill.
  • The rune system doesn’t feels like tailored for midgame. Based on the number of required item and price for rune crafting, it doesn’t feels like it meant for mid game item upgrade. You can craft things, but it feels like it’s more of an end game system or rather completing items after finishing all the quest.

I do like this game more than the 1st one.
It's a lot more bug free, and has more things to do, and I love skill trees and everything about game.
They did a great job in improving the gameplay.

The original game offered enjoyable writing and voice acting, plenty of loot and a decent campaign. II delivers more of the same, with a number of additional game features including an expanded tower defence mode, a new companion of sorts and the ability to dispatch recruits on missions. Even the numerous pop culture references generally bring a smile.

Unfortunately, it is clearly lacking polish - from typos and even completely wrong lines in the subtitles, to constantly getting stuck in the scenery when using the Dash move to the game locking up whenever a certain button is pressed on a controller. It's particularly troubling that a sequel to this was rushed out, with plenty of its own problems, when this game could have used a bit more work.

Still, though those are aggravations, the game is still a enjoyable experience apart from that.

I loved the first game, which I played all the way through. The first was really a Diablo/Torchlight clone in a different setting with a tower defence mini game thrown in.

This one feels like it should be similar but they have strayed away from the formula a bit too far and the game is somehow worse for it. Also the difficult jump is just frustrating if you import a character like I did. All your good kit from VH1 is pointless garbage, ditch it right away. Even as you kit up you wlll find some foes that are simple and the next second some monster that just instakills you and nothing you can really do about it.

You also keep getting called back to base so you can assign people to the task which just breaks the flow.

There are far better ARPGs out there and looking at the feedback to VH3 the series fell off the tracks. Shame as such a great setting

Van Helsing has his work cut out for him. For all the monsters he's slain, the looming spectres of Diablo, Torchlight, and Path of Exile cast an imposing shadow over the rugged hero. To set itself apart, this modern dungeon crawler has to find a way to truly sink its claws into the player beyond the usual loot'n'grind. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II, the second part of a planned trilogy by Neocore Games, succeeds remarkably in carving out its own identity, but at the potentially steep price of polish and balance.

The visuals and soundwork of Van Helsing II are competent, with a few bright spots. The graphics are technically solid, with varied color palettes that provide atmosphere as Van Helsing explores underground caverns, snowy forests, and laboratories full of disgusting experiments. The voice acting is serviceable and the musical score is suitably sweeping and epic, with a few catchy songs, but nothing new for the genre.

A common criticism of dungeon crawlers is that they start off slowly, and Van Helsing II does everything in its power to defy that stereotype. Players of the first Van Helsing will be pleased to find that they can import their character into the sequel, with all of their skills and equipment intact. Newcomers are able to create a character of one of the three classes -- the iconic Hunter, the mage-like Thaumaturge, and the tech-oriented Arcane Mechanic -- that begins at level 30, giving them a set of gear and plenty of skillpoints to spend. Those who find the game's in-depth, granular skill system a little too daunting can start at level 1 without any major handicaps, giving them more time to learn the deep mechanics of the game.

These mechanics are much of what set Van Helsing II apart, but also where this ambitious title first stumbles. The game is unapologetically complex; each class has four primary stats and access to dozens of abilities, all of which can be upgraded up to ten times. There are plenty of ways to construct a character, but unfortunately, not all of them are viable. Many skills pale in comparison to others within the same tree, and it's easy to find yourself with a build that simply doesn't work. Luckily, a respecialization option is both cheap and accessible, making it easy enough to experiment until a satisfactory skillset is found.

There is a lot of content in Van Helsing II, and most of it is implemented well. The usual prerequisites for the genre are in place: a lengthy storyline with plenty of side quests, co-operative multiplayer modes for both the campaign and individual scenarios, and a 'Battle Royal' PvP offering for those wishing to test their mettle against other players. What sets Van Helsing II apart, however, is its dedication to making its single-player experience memorable to the player. Throughout the fifteen to twenty hour campaign, Van Helsing spends plenty of time fighting his way through hordes of enemies, but he also fortifies and defends his Secret Lair (yes, that's what it's called in the game).

The Lair -- the heart of the Resistance movement of which Van Helsing is a critical agent-- is unlocked early in the game, and houses merchants, alchemists, and enchanters capable of modifying and upgrading Van Helsing's equipment. It also grants access to a couple of additional minigames that add much-needed variety to the usual action-adventure fare, including tower defense-style sequences in which Van Helsing must prevent the antagonist's forces from discovering the Resistance's hideout, and a menu-driven command center where the player can build a small army and send them on missions that grant equipment and monetary rewards. Though fairly basic in design, both of these distractions are plenty of fun, and I often found myself teleporting back to base to play with them between campaign missions.

The combat itself doesn't introduce any shocking twists, but it stands proudly with the best in the genre. With eight of his abilities available on the skill bar at any given time, Van Helsing is never lacking for tools with which to fight, and a generous cooldown on potions and plenty of ways to restore health and mana keep things moving at a tight pace. Enemy variety is impressive, with three or four new kinds of foes introduced in each zone, and multiple difficulty levels allow players to suit the challenge to their preferences. The biggest problem that I found was that pure melee characters never really come into their own. Every class has ranged options (and, in fact, the Hunter is the only one that can melee at all), but for all the depth of the skill trees, there's no real way to avoid the punishment that comes from being surrounded by the game's dangerous enemies. It's certainly possible to succeed with a melee-oriented build, it just never reaches the destructive potential of the other choices.

It's a good thing, too, because the plot of the campaign doesn't stand too well on its own. The storyline is basic, but decent enough: after slaying the evil Professor Fulmigati in the first game, Van Helsing finds that the exiled General Harker has returned to take his place. Setting out on a mission to overthrow the new government, the monster hunter is joined once again by the ghost Katarina, who has to be one of the most obnoxious characters I've ever encountered in a videogame. A constant presence at Van Helsing's side, she's an endless font of overwrought sarcasm and grating negativity; in the first two hours of the game alone, she voices her distrust of a new character seven times. I counted. As if to make things worse, she and Van Helsing trade uninspired quips with depressing regularity; the tone of the story, which can get fairly dark at times, is completely offset by the constant, heavy-handed references to games, books, and movies the pair make. Occasionally, a gem of a line can inspire a smile, but for the most part, it's a distracting and desperate attempt at humor.

Further putting a dent in things are the technical issues. The game isn't particularly buggy, at least not in the conventional sense, but it found some creative ways to hamper my enjoyment. Load times are far too long for a game of this size, and even inexplicably happen just from alt-tabbing. The camera is solid enough during gameplay, but in cutscenes, it has a habit of taking nauseating jaunts for seemingly no reason. Oftentimes, a scene with two characters simply standing on either side of a table discussing tactics is lent a surreal air as the perspective randomly changes.

Despite these problems, it's hard not to recommend Van Helsing II. Most of the issues it has feel like the inevitable consequences of making an ambitious game on a small budget, and I have to applaud Neocore Games for packing so much content into their latest endeavor.

The second installment of Van Helsing's series has nothing more to offer than the first one.
It still has all the requirement to fit every stereotype of the hack'n'slash: poor graphics, chaotic, slightly boring, flat protagonist, no real dialogue, repetitive to death. Clearly it is not genre I like that much. So, why am I playing it, and recommending it on top of that? Two main reasons, which are what really set Van Helsing apart from all the other games of its genre: the amazing atmosphere of its world, a charismatic mix of steampunk and gothic fantasy you cannot find anywhere else; and secondly, the quirky humour, filled with references to other famous brands. Honestly, in which other game can you loot a dead Grey Wizard, wielding a sword and a staff, lying in front of a broken bridge, in an underground cave?

Not a bad game, but too clunky to be worth it unless you're a fan of dungeaon crawlers. It would've been worth completing the story if the UI didn't occassionally lock up causing loss of progress.


Pros:
-Production Value
-Plays well
-Fun

Cons:
-Gets boring and tedious quickly
-UI occasionally gets stuck, needing focre close and loss of progress

I got the system requirements, better than the minimum,. But the game is unplayable, everything is low, turned off but it's unplayable. When I can play Bioshock 3, Skyrim etc. with nice graphic, but can't play with this, I think the problem isn't in my computer. Unplayable.

This game is surprisingly boring, and they managed to somehow balance the player perfectly between being slow, weak, and fragile.

You're better off sticking to the first game, or going with Torchlight or Diablo.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II é um jogo muito mais dinâmico que o seu antecessor.
Logo de cara, se caso você tenha jogado o 1ª, você vai perceber a ligação entre ambos os games, o que eu achei muito bacana.

- Lady Katarina sempre muito bem humorada e com skills agora fantásticas e mais fáceis de selecionar.
- Assim como o 1ª, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II tem uma seleção de soundtrack maravilhosa!
- As skills são as mesmas com algumas coisas melhoradas, e também mais fáceis de combar do que o 1ª
- Sistema de Missões para seus soldados da resistência completamente útil e com recompensas extremamente boas. Não apenas itens, mas muito gold e artefatos para melhorar seus soldados da resistência.
- Você terá não apenas a ajuda de Katarina, mas também de uma Quimera, caso você consiga vencê-la em batalha. Essa Quimera, vai poder ser mandada em missões para elevar o lvl, trazer itens e objetos raros.
- Novos inimigos, com habilidades mais dificeis de se abater
- Sistema CO-OP e multiplayer online fantástico, com cenários para PVP e outros modos bem divertidos.
- Easter Eggs com menções honrosas a várias franquias famosas de vários jogos e filmes Geeks que conhecemos. (não vou contar senão perde a graça xD)

Super recomendado!

O jogo é uma continuação direta de seu antecessor, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, e a história começa exatamente após a batalha final dele, que teve um fim abrupto.

A trama em si segue os mesmos atributos do antecessor: história linear, com múltiplos easter eggs que fazem referências a elementos da nossa cultura em geral.

Se o sistema de progressão de Van Helsing 1 já era rico, bom, ele ficou mais rico ainda! Novos sistemas surgiram, e alguns do que existiam receberam mais complexidade ainda.

Pra começar, você terá 3 classes para escolher seu caminho: Caçador, Taumaturgo e Mecânico Arcano, cada uma com habilidades específicas a serem liberadas. A partir daí, o jogo te dará duas opções: uma campanha no Normal, onde você começará com seu personagem nível 1, ou a campanha de Veterano, que deixará seu personagem nível 30.

Passando de nível com seu personagem, você ganhará exatamente 5 pontos de aptidão para gastar entre Corpo, Destreza, Força de Vontade e Sorte. Você também ganhará 3 pontos de habilidades para distribuir entre as habilidades.

Além de aptidão e habilidade, você também irá aumentar sua reputação, a medida que faz suas missões e derrota criaturas poderosas. Ao passar de nível de reputação, você ganhará um ponto de Regalia para gastar.

Está achando muita coisa? Pois bem: a Katarina, sua ajudante, também tem seu próprio nível, e ao passar de nível, também poderá gastar pontos de aptidão e habilidade!

Apesar de toda complexidade, o jogo pega leve com os jogadores, pelo fato de ser muito fácil fazer reposição de aptidão, habilidades e regalias.

Mas então, ao pegar nível máximo, só resta pegar itens? Não! Personagens nível 60 liberam um outro tipo de sistema de progressão, chamado de Glória, que demora muito mais para subir, e te permitirá aumentar atributos especiais com eles, como por exemplo, chance de crítico, ou regeneração de vida. Subir de nível de Glória também irá te dar 2 pontos de aptidão.

Além disso, após o nível 57 você irá liberar acesso ao modo Cenário, voltado justamente para quem já zerou e não quer ficar fazendo a campanha. Ele já existia no antecessor, mas está muito melhor!

A jogabilidade é a mesma de seu antecessor, bem padrão de ARPGs isométricos: extremamente centrada sobre o mouse, que é encarregado da movimentação do personagem e dos ataques em geral.

E uma novidade que agradará a muitos: o jogo vem também com suporte nativo ao controle do Xbox. Você poderá ativar/desativar o suporte ao controle nas opções do jogo, mas terá de reabrir o jogo para que essa alteração seja efetivada.

O mesmo a ser dito do seu antecessor: seu estilo artístico do jogo segue uma atmosfera noir, retratado em cidades vitorianas, com um toque de gótico. As cores são bem opacas em geral, e o contraste costuma ser grande com os efeitos de habilidades. O resultado final é uma facilidade na identificação daquilo que realmente é relevante, sem deixar nada cansativo.

A interface é um tanto rústica, mas possui elementos interessantes, permitindo ao jogador ocultar opções em tempo real, apenas clicando nelas.

A música varia muito – em alguns momentos é monótona e cansativa, mas em outros consegue aparecer e cativar facilmente, combinando bem com a atmosfera do jogo.

Os sons em geral são bons, com leves variações para evitar a repetição constante que aflige jogos do gênero.

Já sobre o seu multiplayer, deram uma melhorada boa: apesar de eventuais problemas técnicos, muito mais raros do que em seu antecessor, dessa vez é possível que a campanha seja avançada tanto no host quanto nos clientes!

O lobby do jogo é muito inteligente, por exemplo. Lista todas as informações de cada jogo, inclusive a região do host, sendo inclusive mais efetivo do que mostrar o ping do mesmo.

Para quem cansar de cooperação, há também o modo Battle Royale, que é o PvP básico, com suporte a até 8 jogadores.

Tão bom quanto o primeiro, o jogo continua tendo o seu diferencial de easter eggs, que são um ótimo incentivo à exploração na campanha, tanto pelas referências muito boas que utiliza quanto pelas recompensas.

A Katarina continua muito divertida, e suas interações tornam o jogo muito mais interessante, certamente mais interessante do que a história do jogo.

As melhorias no multiplayer são muito bem-vindas, aumentando a estabilidade, permitindo sessões mais felizes com um amigo. Os sistemas também receberam uma atenção especial, e provavelmente é atualmente o ARPG com maior personalização de itens, permitindo ao jogador criar itens perfeitos sem a necessidade de um farm dependendo da sorte.

A rejogabilidade também está muito mais interessante com as inovações do sistema de cenário, criando um sistema de progressão dentro dele, muito recompensador, e como sempre, deixando o desafio na mão do jogador.

O jogo está mais polido do que nunca, e fico feliz de ver o grande avanço que a NeoCore conseguiu com essa continuação! O jogo cresceu muito, e certamente, me deixou bem curioso para ver o que vão conseguir trazer de inovação na próxima continuação!
