Über dieses Spiel

Alles schien so einfach: Besiege den verrückten Wissenschaftler, befreie das Land und reite in den Sonnenuntergang – doch manchmal bereitet der Untergang eines Verbrechers den Weg für noch unheilvollere Feinde. Das unglaubliche Abenteuer geht weiter und der berühmte Monsterjäger Van Helsing kehrt zurück, um mithilfe seiner bezaubernden geisterhaften Gefährtin Lady Katarina erneut den Tag zu retten. Die gotische Metropole der sonderbaren Wissenschaft steht am Rande der Vernichtung, als sich in den Straßen das Chaos ausbreitet und ein neuer Feind nach Rache sinnt. Es wird Zeit, die dunkle Seite von Borgova und die verbotene Wildnis zu betreten, aber sei gewarnt: Du bist nicht der einzige, der sich hinter einer Maske versteckt.

Wichtige Features

  • Drei spielbare Klassen – im Nachfolger dieses Gothic-Noir-Abenteuers entscheidest du dich zwischen drei vollkommen verschiedenen Klassen: der klassische Jäger mit den Fähigkeiten Schießen und Nahkampf, der Magie wirkende Thaumaturg oder der arkane Mechaniker, der Meister der tödlichen Gerätschaften; alle sind bereits im Hauptspiel enthalten.

  • Das Versteck des Jägers – in dieser Fortsetzung kehrt das Versteck zurück. Es ist dein perfektes Versteck. Hier kannst du die gesammelte Beute anhäufen, mit nicht-spielbaren Charakteren handeln, dich zu den Örtlichkeiten teleportieren, neue Gegenstände schmieden, das Alchemielabor nutzen und neue Aufgaben von Verbündeten annehmen, die sich dem Widerstand gegen die wissenschaftliche Geißel anschließen.

  • Erweitertes Tower-Defense-Minispiel – die Gegner kommen in Wellen und du kannst dein Versteck und andere strategische Orte mit Fallen und zahlreichen aufrüstbaren Funktionen versehen, um das Böse zu bekämpfen; jetzt mit verbesserter Spielmechanik und bis zu 7 Levels, die als optionale Nebenquests zur Verfügung stehen.

  • Widerstandsmanagement – als Anführer des borgovianischen Widerstands nimmst du am Mikromanagement der verbündeten Truppen teil, verbesserst du die Ausrüstung der Widerstandskämpfer und findest du Beute, mit denen du sie aufrüsten kannst.

  • Wutsystem – du kannst bis zu drei Fertigkeitsmodifikatoren aufladen, die als Power-ups für 8 aktive Fertigkeiten bezeichnet werden; dies erfolgt durch die Vergabe von Wutpunkten, die durch beeindruckende Heldentaten gesammelt werden.

  • Einzigartige Gefährtin – Lady Katarina, ein Geist mit flinker Zunge, unterstützt Van Helsing mit ihren eigenen Fähigkeiten, Verhalten und zwei Fertigkeitenbäumen.

  • Runenfertigung – neben Schmieden, Verzaubern und Durchtränken von Gegenständen mit Essenzen hast du zudem die Möglichkeit, die Gegenstände ganz nach Belieben zu modifizieren. Artefakte können zerlegt und in magische Fragmente zersplittert werden, um daraus rein magische Runen zu machen; diese können modifiziert und in neue Gegenstände eingesetzt werden, um daraus verschiedene neue und mächtige Artefakte zu schaffen.

  • Die Bestie im Versteck – die Chimäre ist eine einzigartige Kreatur; ein schreckliches Monster direkt aus der Tinte. Du kannst ihre Fähigkeiten verbessern und sie im Kampf beschwören, oder sie zur Schatzsuche in die Tinte schick

  • Halle der Trophäen – du kannst das Versteck mit Trophäen dekorieren, die der Spielwelt globale Modifikatoren verleihen; wie etwa die Stärkung von Monstern, die Gewährung größerer Zauberkraft für alle Verbündeten, oder die Verwandlung von Katarina in einen noch tödlicheren Geist

  • Mehrspieler – teste deine Fertigkeiten gegen deine Freunde im PvP-Modus (8 Spieler) oder schließt euch zusammen und schließt die Geschichte in der kooperativen Kampagne (4 Spieler) ab.

If your here youve probably played the first game. If not this game is exactly like it but a little better in my opinion. The art looks amazing using dx11, with added skills for both van helsing and katarina to make your character even more of a badass. There is an added feature where you can send guys and a chimera on timed missions to get some extra stuff. This game felt easier than the first one but i did die alot during my solo playthru on normal, im guessing this game would be perfect on the coop. Even after dying alot the graphics and loot kept me coming back to slaughter more. i played using a xbox controller, game ran smooth but i did get several weird bugs where when exiting or opening a menu itd pop up with one of my items and i could not do anything. Could have been a glitch caused by the controller im not sure but most of the time the game did always have me saved up so i did not have to lose progress.

Overall i had alot of fun on this game and bet it would rock on coop. Get it.

+) 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.

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.

Wer den Vorgänger mag, der kommt um Van Helsing 2 nicht vorbei. Es gibt im Grunde mehr von allem (z.B. 3 Klassen zur Auswahl statt einer) im gewohnten VH-Stil. Alles ein wenig hübscher, größer, besser als im Vorgänger. Das ist allerdings auch gut so, denn VH 2 bewegt sich jetzt durchaus auf Augenhöhe mit Diablo 3 - zumindest soweit man das aus der Beta beurteilen kann. Wie es mit Endgame Content aussieht kann ich natürlich nicht sagen, das bleibt abzuwarten. Habt ihr Diablo 3 durch, dann werft mal nen Blick hier drauf.

Zur Story lässt sich noch nicht gar zu viel sagen, dazu ist die Beta zu kurz, aber die Quests sind abwechslungsreich und machen sehr viel Spaß. Auch der Humor kommt nicht zu kurz, die Dialoge zwischen Van Helsing und Katharina sind zuweilen sehr amüsant^^

Meine Eindrücke zur Beta hab ich auch in einem Video verwurstet:

Ich als RPG-Fan musste mir natürlich früher oder später auch den 2ten Teil von "The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing" holen. ( im Angbot um 50 % reduziert ).

positives:
-Man kann die Charackter aus dem ersten Teil impotieren,sie berhalten die alten Fertigkeiten und Attacken und können zusätzlich noch etliche neue lernen. Was will man mehr, als sein alten Charackter weiter zu leveln!
-Diesmal hat man nicht nur Lady Katharina als Beschützer sondern später auch noch eine Chimäre, zusätzlich hat man auch noch ein paar Widerstandkämpfer an seiner Seite, die man auf Missionen schicken kann
-Der kleine Tower-Modus in der Kampagne wurde verbessert, noch mehr Missionen und Fallen.
Und das gute ist, wenn man es nicht machen will dann kann man seine Widerstandskämpfer dazu beauftragen.
-Wie immer eine gute Kampagne mit Nebenmissionen und vielen Kleinigkeiten zum Entdecken.

Neutrales:
-man hat diesmal auch ohne Erweiterung gleich 3 verschiedene Chrackter zu verfügung ( im Gegenteil zu anderen RPG spielen wir Diablo oder Torchlight immer noch zu wenig)
-ich habe eine Woche lange versucht Online zu zocken, leider habe ich nie einen Gegner oder Spielpartner gefunden, und wenn doch gab es Probleme mit der Verbindung

Negatives:
- an manchen Stellen laggt das Spiel , das kann sehr nervig werden wenn eine Horde von Gegner gerade auf dir zu kommt
-ich finde das Spiel immer noch sehr Schwer, selbst auf Normal ( 2 von 5 Schwierigkeitsgrad ) bin ich sehr oft gestorben
-man hat zwar 3 Klassen, aber irgend wie sind sie sich alle änliche, auch die Fähigkeiten unterscheiden sich kaum


Ich bin froh das ich mir das Spiel gekauft habe, es hat mir Insgesamt viel Spass gemacht,Preis-Leistung ist das Spiel in jeder Hinsicht zu empfehlen.

Ein launisches Geistermädchen, ein rauhbeiniger Held, abgedrehte Monster in allen Größen und mehr Beute als ein rumänischer Jäger tragen kann - all das gibt es auch im zweiten Teil von The Incredible Adventures of Van Heldsing 2 und noch einiges mehr. Der zweite Teil will dabei keineswegs das Rad des Spielgenres neu erfinden, sondern glänzt eher mit Weiterentwicklung.

Neu hinzugekommen ist die Entdeckung eures "Haustiers" - oder besser gesagt das Haustier eurer Geisterbegleiterin. Wie ihr dazu kommt und was für ein Haustier es ist will ich hier natürlich nicht verraten - aber Katrina weiß immerhin sofort einen Namen für ihr Haustier ... Ebenfalls neu hinzugekommen ist die Möglichkeit Soldaten auf Missionen zu schicken. Dies kommt meiner Meinung nach aber bisher noch zu kurz und ist zu wenig spielentscheidend.

Weiter entwickelt wurde dagegen das bereits aus Teil 1 bekannte Tower Defense-Minispiel. Die Anzahl der verfügbaren Türme wurde erhöht, ebenso wie die Fähigkeit der Weiterentwicklung ebendieser. Weiter entwickelt wurden auch die Schauplätze inklsuive der bereits aus Teil 1 bekannten "Tinte". Diesmal sind die Schauplätze sogar um einiges abwechslungsreicher und immer wieder mit Anspielungen und Witz gespickt - ein genaues Absuchen lohnt also wieder.

Der einzige Kritikpunkt der mir wirklich einfallen würde, sind die langen Ladezeiten zwischen den verschiedenen Leveln. Das war auch in Teil 1 schon so und die Entwickler sollten sich für ein zünftiges Projekt unbedingt dieses Problems annehmen.

Alles in allem kann trotzdem jeder, der bereits Teil 1 mochte, auch hier sofort wieder zugreifen und wird nicht entäuscht.

Dieses Spiel macht mir persönlich einfach sau viel Spaß. Klar es ist nicht perfekt, das Trefferfeedback, etwas hackelige Steuerung, aber das Spiel versprüht unglaublich viel Charme. Die vielen kleinen Details und Sidekicks auf Spiele, Filme ist einfach herrlich, die Gespräche zwischen Van Helsing und seiner Begleiterin, haben etwas an Witz verloren, jedoch ist dieses Spielepaar einfach vorzüglich. Der Umfang des Spieles ist gestiegen, es gibt mehr zu tun z.b ein eigenes Haustier was jagt und Beute ins Versteck bringt und und und. Das Spiel hat meiner meinung nach einen hohen Wiederspielwert, da man beim ersten Durchspielen kaum alle Geheimnisse entdeckt, die drei Klassen mit ihren unterschiedlichen Skillungen spielen sich alle total anders aber immer spaßig.

Zu Story ist halt nicht viel zu sagen, sie ist halt Vorhersehbar. Ich sehe das Spiel nahezu auf Augenhöhe mit Diablo 3 vom Spielspaß. Wer VH 1 muss sich VH 2 kaufen vorallem da es nur 15€ kostet und wesentlich länger zum Durchspielen brauch wie D3 z.b
