Over dit spel

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).

i should have payed more attention to the fact it has mxied reviews. this game is ♥♥♥♥. it's feels extremely cheap and is very very poorly built. i bought it only fo the coop but in all honestly we played for about 2 hours before having enough of abuse that we shut the game down, permenantly. NO element of this game deserves a good score, graphics, sound, plot. gameplay. stay away from this. i'm glad it only cost me 15$ and not more. i'm not going to touch any of the games in that serries ever again.

I reallly liked VH1. This is very much like the first one, but with a lot more BUGS.
Game feels rushed. Co-op is a mess. Trading, zoning, even just inspecting in multiplayer has caused crashes.

The co-op connecting sometimes just decides to stop working with all the associated ports opened.
I found a work-around is to set the password to just "1".

The game is fun most of the time, but the bugs are close to game-breaking, escpecially in multiplayer mode.
I can't recommend this game.

As with part I, many negative reviews are related to multiplayer. I play 1p, and it works great. I prefer bringing a charter up to level 30 in part 1, then importing and playing through part II. It really only has replay value to the extent that you master character classes. If you win with a character, you can easily re-spec and try other skills. Still, easily worth the money. My favorite part is in the latter stages of the game where you're defending tunnels. Traps are fun.

The design still beautiful and the music still well done. the story is more complex than the first game and some of the character are back. the introduction of new character made the game even better because they are very interest and complex in personality. the game play is still beautiful and you can tranfer your character from the previous game or make a new one. there are new skills and power up to try out and this make this game very playable.

Coop system is just horrible! I bought for my friend this game on summer sale and you know how we managed to get into coop game? we dont, spent all day on f88ing research, trying to find the solution and there are no answers on official forums on disscussion threads. It seems even developers dont know how to fix this. It's June of 2016 and no coop fix still.

Game breaking bug that stops the progression in its tracks, I google the bug, it has been there since 2014 with many many complains, but yet, now is the middle of 2016 and developer don't even bother to fix it.

My game is literally stuck, quest cannot be completed or continue, this is NOT acceptable, I regret the time I put in playing this game. I wish I never have touched it.

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.

I liked the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing quite a bit, so I was excited for II. The original game had its problems, but had enough atmosphere and quirky humor and story for me to enjoy it. Where VH excelled, VH2 does not.

Pros:
1) Game's atmosphere is beautiful. I particularly like the outside areas. Unfortunately, very little of your gameplay experience takes place outside.

Cons:
1) They attempted to fix the lackluster skill tree from the original game. The original lacked choices and most of the skills were useless. They did a complete 180 and the skill tree still sucks. Now, it is oversaturated with no coherent structure. Certain skills unlock other skills but have no function in relation to those skills. For example, Want to build around ice damage? Pick one skill on the right, arbitrarily attached to some fire and lightning. Then, try to pick a skill on the left, arbitrarily attached to other random skills. Makes no sense.

2) Balance. Game balance is awful. I played the original game on the hardest difficulty [I play most ARPGs on the hardest difficulty]. VH2 seems to have mobs that are weak [on any difficulty] and mobs that do an incredible amount of dmg on any difficulty other than "casual". Even if I built my character around heavy defensive passives/tricks ranged/casting things [which tend to do more dmg in general] hit BRUTALLY hard. There's also the occasional 1 shot from a challenging to see ability when swamped in a pack of mobs.
Edit: I've now played through the game with a second character. My first was a thaumaturge that really struggled with balance. My second was the original hunter character, but built around spell-casting. I played my second time on hard/heroic difficulties - stacked the mana shield defensive ability and some other defensives, and could face-roll pretty much anything so long as I had mana. Again, certain skills are way more powerful than others, effectively making the oversaturated skill tree still feel problematic.
Edit Two: Played more on the thaumaturge on heroic. Balance is really what is holding the game back. Built my character around abilities that could do damage while moving and crit chance/crit dmg [crit chance around 32-35%, crit dmg maxed @ 450%], and high HP, made heroic pretty easy. The problem, though, is sometimes you just get 1 shot from off-screen, even with high damage reduction. Difficulty basically scales like this: Mobs have higher health making it take longer to kill them. High dmg abilities do insane dmg and can result in 1 shots. The longer a mob lives, the greater chance of a 1 shot. Not sure how they can really fix this, but it makes build diversity fairly limited. At a certain point you just have to be able to do damage while moving and you have to spec heavily into defense.

3) Storyline/Quests. This is really my main qualm with the game. The storyline of this game is really disappointing. Maybe the storyline isn't disappointing [as it makes sense in the context of VH1], but the way it is executed is disappointing. The questing sucks. Very little variation, mostly based around tower defense. The vast majority of your missions are "secure X, Y, Z points by battling through streams of enemies. This was my least favorite type of mission in VH and it seems to be what the entirety of VH2 is built around. If I wanted to play Tower Defense, I'd play Tower Defense. The final boss fight, spoiler alert, is not even a fight. You literally kill streams of enemies until his force field's HP hits 1. He then blows up and the game ends on a pathetic attempt at a cliff hanger. I understand the attempt at a military strategy/real-time invasion, but it simply fails to be enjoyable.

4) End Game: It's about what you expect. You get "random" dungeons [just reskinned areas of the main story] and tasks to complete within them. Some of them also have interesting things that makes them substantially more difficult [Your companion won't help, can't regen life/mana, etc]. I did a few of them on heroic difficulty. They were a challenge. The quirky interactions don't take place between Katarina/Helsing so it's basically just the mindless challenge of slaughtering enemies with certain affixes that make the already poorly balanced gameplay more difficult. I'm glad they added this feature. Unfortunately, it does not do much for me because I've already done a lot of this in Path of Exile AND Path of Exile's system is better. All in all, I think it will be fun for people who haven't already beaten the model to death in other games, but wasn't real fun for me.

5) Multiplayer: Much like during the launch of the first game [in which it wasn't even functional], multiplayer is quite buggy. In fact, I've only successfully joined 1 game [I've tried to join many], and the host disconnected shortly thereafter, rendering my efforts obsolete. I've also tried hosting multiple times. I will get a message that "x is trying to join your game", but they are never successful in doing so. Not sure if it is a bug, a lack of stable connection, or what, but multiplayer seems quite hit or miss.

Verdict:

If you did not play the first game, don't buy this. The first is a much more complete experience.
If you loved the first and are desperate to see where the story goes, buy this.
If you loved the first for what it was, and aren't too attached to the story, don't buy this.
The game simply lacks what made the first game worth playing - the quirky nature, originality, and great atmosphere - while not really fixing any of the detracting factors of the first game [lack of real diversity via skill tree].
