Really nice game.

Solid combat, some exploration thanks to the jump feature and a nice side-quest system for each sub-area that gives it a great touch and enhances replay value and not grindfest.

If you like ARPG, go for it.

i would support this company by making a positive review.

the reason why i thumbed this up is due to it is a really fun and addicting to play, here are my pro and cons.

Pros:
Graphics look really good even on the lowest settings

Gameplay is fun alot of monsters to kill and level up your character

After you play alittle bit it will ask you to choose an outfit depending on which one you choose will affect your character
You can choose to make a normal character or Hardcore Character so depends on your playstyle i guess xD

Tons of Loot for em Loot lovers

controls are really easy to use can play like diablo controls or Marvels 2016 controls

i was told this accepted xbox 360 controller but i had no extra usb plugin to try it out

plays well on GT 650M Laptops but you need to lower everything to lowest setting for stable 60fps you can push high settings but turn off FXAA and Shadows

Cons:
i didnt find anything so far

i would recommend this to portable and desktop gamers

Nice looking game, and nice customisation, the game runs smoothly.

The problems with the game, unfortunately far out way the good, about midway through the game you get far too many mobs attacking you, with soo many different types and speeds of attacks it gets silly.
You will be stun locked, then electrocuted, then burnt and homing missiles chasing you, curses being placed on you, then surround by melee attackers at the same time, just to name some, and I don’t think your arsenal in the game is geared up or strong enough to deal with them, the way the game works, I finished the game but I like to do it by skill, not by forcing the result.

I think this would be a great game played with a group, single player no.

Long story short: if you like hack and slash
games, then this deserves a look.

* good variety of challenges in each level
* game itself is challenging... without feeling cheap
* some of the character dialogue is pretty funny
* lot of flexibility in combat
* the Hexes add a good deal of 'spice' once activated
* excellent soundtrack

It's not without its quirks (sometimes, enemies are hard
to see because they blend in with the environment) but
ultimately those are pretty minor. It's rare I go out of my
way to advocate for a game, but Victor Vran is just plain
fun. I would have gladly bought it at full price when it
first released. Without a doubt this was one of my happiest
purchases on Steam.

I hope an expansion pack or a sequel comes forth. I want
more.

Pros:
Perfec fighting system
Beautiful graphics
Superb dubbing
Interesting setting
Runs on Linux
Well optimized

Cons:
Quite simple story
Flat characters
No point in (re)playing it after you've beaten it

Long version:
Really well made ARPG hack and slash game. It feels very similar to Van Helsing (only without robots). I was pretty much amazed by it for first cca 6 hours.

Many things are done just the way they should be in this kind of game. There is an intuitive and well-designed fighting system (I mention this first since it is an ARPG game), beautiful graphics, interesting setting and everything around it.

The ability to jump is interesting although it doesn't have much real use and it can sometimes be really annoying if you can't get where you want to get just because Victor desides to jump in some other direction. I would appreciate the opportunity to use it for surprise attacks, but that's not the case here.

The types of attacks you can make depend on your gear as do many other aspects (various types of mele and ranged attacks or the way you acquire Overdrive) so your build can be customized with great variety. I also greatly appreciate enemy UI, especially when they use special attacks - you can't escape those that easilly and when they hit you (and believe me, they will) you're gonna take a lot of damage.

Another fine thing is the challenge system - areas you enter offer bonuses if you manage to complete certain optional tasks.

The game has quite detailed environment that can, to certain extent, be intervened with. This, unfortunately, basically ends with breaking things, so you can't use the environment to support your attacks, for example. It would be really nice.

Music is nice and supports the fighting atmosphere of a demon-infested medieval city very well. Dubbing is especially good.

Last but not least, it is pretty well optimized. My machine is no snail but no rocket either and I only experience minor lags in a Hub area (so not much of an issue there).

So far so good. Now for the cons. The story is pretty simple and the way it's told isn't very interesting. Yes, it is an ARPG game and the A stands for Action. But RP stands for Role Playing and you need a story for that. There is just SO MUCH space for much deeper and better story. As it is, I could probably write an entire plot of this game in one line of this review.
Game characters suffer greatly form this, because you can't have believable characters without a story. Since the NPCs are dubbed very well, it would be nice to have some elaborate story behind them.Not just "I got sick, a dark pact saved me and now my country went to hell as a price" or "I'm a mysterious hunter and you're never gonna know anything about me whatsoever except for my name."

The dodge ability is basically useless since almost all special attacks your enemies have will hit you anyway. Magical "projectiles" like fireballs follow you no matter where you move or how much you dodge. In other cases enemies predict an exact spot you'll be in half a second later and launch a spell with the area of impact so big that you simply have no chance of dodging or jumping away. Even if you try it, they hit you hard. Special attacks of bosses bring this issue to extreme - for example they cast this pillar of fire that follows you and since it moves faster than you, you don't even have to bother trying to escape. It is good to have a competent enemy UI but this is simply too much. Just have at least 2 slots with healing potions ready at all times.

It was an interesting (and good) idea to add hunter's "companion" in a form of a voice in the head, he does really good job (sarcastically commenting on everything you do) and is often very funny. However, as I wrote before, when I compare this to "Van Helsing - Lady Katarina" pair, the latter clearly win for me. Also, it feels really odd to still hear him after he's been defeated and he did a much better job in Stanley Parable, too.

But the main flaw this game has is an absolute zero value of replaying it. Not even the challenge system or hunting of "wanted" epic beasts can save it in my opinion. I simply don't feel attracted by the idea of going through the trivial story and listening to the same jokes again. I tried that and it really wasn't fun. You can continue playing after you finish main story but I find that really dull - walking the same maps over and over again with nothing but 1 or 2 random epic beasts to be added.

To be clear I DO recommend this game just don't expect miracles. It will provide you with about 6 or so hours of fun and really good action. That said, consider if it's worth full price yourselves. I got it on full price and don't regret it, but had I known what I know now, I would have waited for a discount.

Summary:
Victor Vran is very well made ARPG game that certainly stands above avarage. None of the flaws it has is a game-killer and I didn't encounter any serious bug that would prevent me from playing or having fun. I also greatly appreciate that devs took the effort to support Linux systems and did a good job on that.
I give it 8 / 10 (7 + 1 for Linux support)

Wholy moly. Enjoying this game immensly, but I can't play it at the same time while listening to my husband play the Witcher. Same voice actor. Started getting confused as to whose game was whose! Beautiful graphics, and story so far. Can't want to play it some more.

Victor Vran is a mix of Bastion and Diablo 3 and exactly the game I was looking for.
It is as much about loot as about your skill. The combat is very dynamic and fun. I love dodging and jumping around.

I also love the narrator. His humor is great. I wish he would talk even more.
The story feels a bit thin and a few cut-scenes would be nice, but the gameplay is great.
So far I've found no bugs.

20€ is also a very good price for this game.

Overall great job, Haemimont Games!
I'm looking forward to your next action-rpg/adventure.

I love it when you take a chance on a game you've never heard of and it turns out to be surprisingly good. I had been searching for a new arpg to get into since I stopped playing Diablo a few months back and I stumbled upon little gem from the recent Steam sale. It isn't exactly a loot extravaganza, but the gameplay itself is way more fun than I expected. Imagine a combination of Diablo and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and you'll have an idea of how this game plays out. Also Geralt is the protagonist's voice actor and that's just icing on the cake.

I walk into a deserted town full of monsters....
And I jump on to some roofs, find hidden locations, pick up treasures and kill my own brother in the depths of a dungeon. As I run my way back to some castle I stumble upon a chessboard looking area where some spider boss spawns with thousands of spiders chasing after me as i try to keep alive.

When I head towards the wilds I encounter some fire elemental who aoe burns me and my hp drops rapidly. After all troubling hindrances I find my way into yet another dungeon, but this time its time based and I have to turn on curse marks which will make it a lot more challenging.

I end up almost getting killed inside while running for my life as a huge number of mobs and champions chase me through the dungeon cave. After some hours I find myself in a vampire city where the voice in my head is telling me jokes about vampires and gargyoles. And so my long journey continues once again and I end up thinking I've reached the end of the story when I walk into some other world.... well, until I realised its not yet over.


10/10 would play again.
Game reminds me of Diablo combined Van Helsing.
Also, the curse marks were really fun to have on while exploring the wilds and other places, it made the game extremly much more fun, challenging and somewhat annoying (because it can easily kill you).


i'll be adding in a video of me playing this game later for the review

if diablo 3 left a bad taste in your mouth you may want to try this.
this game has an added dimension with camera turning control (right click and drag) wich you can use to find extra treasure / hidden areas.
there is a variety of weapons that give the game its in depth builds, so far i dont think im 30% in yet but im fond of what i've played

8/10 if in doubt, add to wishlist and buy on a sale

A solid ARPG!
-Around 20hrs of casual gameplay, tons more if you want to complete all the challenges/secrets
-Great weapon and gameplay variety, doesn't get repetitive
-Nice music score and sound effects, on top of a great narrator
-Graphics are also very nice, probably top as ARPGs go
-Very responsive controls

All around a good game, I recommend it to all fans of the genre.

Just another RPG. It has some interesting mechanics with weapon swap. You can only use one weapon at a time. However you can quickly switch between 2 different weapons. Weapons do not share cooldown timers. As a result, you can cycle between your weapons and cooldowns.
