Genre: ARPG

This is the first ARPG that I've ever played. Game has an amazing, smooth and fun gameplay, however it's an extremly repetitive, basically an one big grind fest. Story is very boring and generic. Getting all achievements would take 80-100 hours, since you have to do 410 challenges, that can be annoying sometimes(kill X number of enemies without getting hit). I tried getting them because of fun gameplay, but since the game is so repetitive, I got so bored that I gave up on getting achievements, and I speedrunned half of the game, only killing 2 necessary bosses while doing so and I was able to beat them easily because I became fairly strong early on cause of so much grinding. Also the text of the last boss is very cringy. Unlike in other ARPGs you can roll and jump here so that's good though.

Note: I understand that all ARPGs are probably repetitive, but I have a right on opinion, and I don't like this game cause of it. This is maybe more a negative review on a whole genre, but this is the game I played, and I don't like it.

Verdict:
Amazing, smooth and fun gameplay, but very repetitive game and has a boring generic story. Getting all achievements would take 80-100 hours.

Personal rating: 6.5/10

Victor Vran is one of those games that broke my usual routine. I never was a fan of isometric RPGs, a heresy which caused me to dislike games like Diablo.

However, this game broke through my initial distaste for the camera with a fun combat system - which is based on special skills and dodges, dynamic difficulty - which allows the player to turn on/off runes that give buffs to enemies and debuffs to the player character and a sense of humour - narrator, enemies and the NPCs make me grin rather often.

On top of that, game looks aesthetically pleasing and doesn't have any glaring flaws or bugs. Story is written well, but isn't anything special.

Music is nice and fitting, but does not stand out much.

It has to be noticed that the glorious voice of Kevan Brighting serves as narration (mostly known for being a narrator in Stanley Parable) and the unquastionably gritty but amazing voice of Doug Cockle serves as a voice for the protagonist (also voiced Geralt of Rivia in the Witcher games).

Game seems to have some FPS slowdowns on occassion, but it is rare and subsides quickly in my case.

Overall, if you think that you would like an RPGs with an exceptional cast of voice-actors, good writing and fun combat, well, you found one.

I also have to note... it was about time that heroes of the isometric aRPGs learned how to jump.

I haven't played enough of this yet, but I can already safely say that I LOVE this game. I've accidentally taken a break by getting addicted to diablo 3 at the moment but I plan to come back and finish this one when I get bored.

From my short play time I already love it. The atmosphere is very Van Helsing-ish, the main characters are all very well designed and voice acting is AMAZING. There's a main character who teases and bickers with you a lot and he is very funny :)

It feels much like a "Diablo clone" but in a good way. So many games nowadays try to copy the ARPG classic feel but miss the mark. (For instance I was not a fan of Grim Dawn, but I did love Torchlight 2)

Victor Vran however immediately pulled me in and I hope to play it more. It feels unique enough and not just "another clone." The combat is very click-heavy which is my only complaint and I think I might try out using my gamepad if possible because clickheavy games kill my hand after a while lol. Combat can be a bit repetitive but that's to be expected in hack and slash games. Skill management could use some more custimization...

But... The way skills work in this game using a collectable card system is really cool. Very unique and a lot of fun to play around with. I also enjoyed unlocking other outfits and being able to dress up :)

Overall I highly recommend this to any fan of ARPG or hack and slash games looking for something with a lot of personality and charm!

At first this game is very exciting, and it has a good story too. It has a multiplayer mode, where you can play 3 other people to. The graphic is fair enough. After 30 hours playing it's a bit boring, even if you playing with others, so the lifespan of this game is about 30 hours, but I suggest to try it once.

Few tiny steps shy of brilliance

If I had bought Victor Vran for its full price, I might have second-guessed if I should, in fact, recommend it, but at this point in its lifetime it's not a matter of discussion – if you're even remotely a fan of ARPGs, get it, you can hardly find a better way to waste at least 15-20 hours than hackin' n' slashin' monsters with up to 3 buddies.

Soooo... Let's get down to it, shall we? I will try to break the game down into what's good (+) and what's bad (-) about it.

The breakdown

(+) Great gameplay. This is by far the best thing about the game – who knew that adding actual action controls into an ARPG could make it all that much more fun? I guess, if you're a fan of using 15 hotkeys to cast spells you won't be as enticed as I was, but as I'm not, it was perfect. Ranged enemy attacks, however, are largely homing and really high-ranged, so jumping is not valid and dodging is often a mundane exercize of dodging around one projectile for 15+ seconds.
(+) Great sense of humor. Story is poor, yeah, but it knows it's poor. So why not just go with the flow.
(+) Decent enemy variety. Although you'll be mowing 'em down the same way, different areas have different enemies, and a good chunk of them are randomized to possess same powers you have.
(+) Good base customization. You have 2 potion slots (although I do admit I only used healing ones, since bomb cooldowns are ridiculous, 90 seconds for one use), 2 Demon Power slots (although I found my favorites fairly early one, rendering the rest useless) and 5 Destiny card slots, which give passive bonuses, but require a certain level of ingenuity to build properly (we did not venture into the endgame content, so min-maxing wasn't a necessity). You also have 2 weapons slots, and they have have 2 skills each, which let you combine them for maximum effect. There is also the outfit which is sort of like your class, but even if you pick one early one, you can find the rest as an item.
(+) Co-op implementation. It's really well done, and as the story isn't too serious, it's hardly too weird to have 2-4 Victor Vrans running around in the same game. Story progress can be shared without any issues and challenges can be completed together as well.
(+) Global chat. Even now there are at least few dozen people in the global chat, and they are always ready to help. It's always nice of devs to go the extra mile and allow this to be possible.

(+/-) Loot. Loot is weird in this game, so I can't decide if I like it or not. You do find plenty of items, and legendaries scale with your level, but as the game is tailored to depend 50/50 on both your items and your mechanical skill, the mobs don't scale too far and your damage remains more or less the same after 30+ level. I do believe that grinding out legendary weapons/cards could make a difference, but I don't think it's as big as it could be. Also, there could be more weapons, there are just 3 ranged weapons and 4 melee weapon types – 14 weapon skills total.
(+/-) Local co-op. This is not yet in the game, so that's why I'm putting it here. It's promised though, and should eventually be released. When/if they do release it, I'll probably replay it at least one more time.
(+/-) Challlenges. They do make up a large part of endgame, and I guess it's fine, but at some point you have to ask yourself: do I want to keep restarting this one cramped area to try and kill 40 mobs without them hitting me with homing spells?

(-) Performance. It may just be my laptop, but frequent framerate dips really did a number on me. And as the game seems to be tied to framerate, it resulted in too many mobs knocking my framerate to low 15s, which resulted in 400% longer cooldowns, jerky movement and all sorts of shenanigans. My friend, however, had no issues whatsoever.
(-) Bosses. It pains me to say so, but bosses are really, really ♥♥♥♥in' underwhelming in this game. Which is ludicrous considering the possibilities of having an active movement system with the option to dodge AND jump. Last boss and endgame DLC boss are two of the most annoying things in this game: last boss is just a frustrating bullet sponge you have to walk out of range of every 30 seconds, and endgame boss is just a stupid oversized regular mob with 2 high-damage attacks and exhausting invincibility frames.

The verdict

Got 15-20 hours to kill? Get it. Looking for a good co-op experience? Get it. Want a cheesy game that won't require your low attention span to work on memorizing the complex twists and turns of an in-depth story? Get it. Itching for an ARPG, especially one with a unique twist? Get it.

At the price this game goes for now it'd be silly not to try it, at least. And while there are many things the devs could've done to make it THE definitive ARPG, they always have another shot if they decide to make a Victor Vran sequel. They have my trust.

I got this on sale for about half off, but I think even at retail it is worth it. I guess the only way to explain it is that it plays a little like Diablo, but with a Van Helsing atmosphere. There is a decent set of ways you can upgrade your character and his loot.

If you like isometric action RPGs, and you like that sort of van helsing or strahd atmosphere, you will like this.

Got this game in a bundle, probably would never have picked it up on my own, I rarely play the genre nowadays.

But I would have missed out on a lot! I don't know how far I'll ever get in the game (got to the part where you go deeper and deeper into the chasm, but got stuck somehow and couldnt progress, must have missed something) but it hardly matters. I had a blast playing it.

There are about a dozen different weapon types, and you can alternate between 2 of them at a time, so you can make very different builds. I mean it's not quite Titan Quest since everything is just damage but it's pretty cool. Also you have deck cards which buff stats and give procs and stuff like that.

I imagine there are more powerful builds but I mostly went shotgun + scythe, just because, it was pretty dam fun, that's why. Tried everything though. I liked the Books as a ranged weap too.

Combat was really fun. I found it to be kinda easy on Normal but then to complete the challenges could be a bit tough. Actually the difficulty felt perfect to me. EXCEPT THAT ONE STUPID PART WITH THE ESSENCE THAT KEEPS SPLITTING!! that was TOTALLY out of place, and was pretty much the only time I ever died. and died and died and died - the difficulty is completely and utterly out of place for that area - might want to give some kind of indication about that .. lost my hardcore char bc of that. And the devs even said they originally meant to make it way harder. What the ♥♥♥♥? it's a good challenge but this is basically 2 steps up from the beginning area... terrible scaling.

But, i gotta give them a pass bc that's practically the only thing negative I can think of to say. It's a pretty casual game actually, unless you do pvp and stuff, i guess. And that's what I really liked about it- when I wanted a challenge, I did the 5 star challenges, otherwise, i just kept moving along, kilin stuff & leveling up.

Good stuff.

Thoroughly average, if you have an itch for an arpg and its on sale you can do worse but torchlight II, path of exile, titan quest or diablo 3 are better choices, look into those first.
