About

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is an action RPG with elements of the hack and slash genre and the first part of the trilogy of the same name. It tells the story of Van Hellsing’s son who continues his father’s work and kills monsters on the streets of the fictional Borgova city. There he fights against a cult that spoils the life of civilians.
You can develop the hunter's skills and upgrade his weapon and magic possession. Van Helsing Junior also has an ally, a ghost named Catherine who helps him in battles. Depending on your choice how to upgrade her, she can be a tank or a healer. The variety of weapons is not very huge; however, there are several ways to customize your character cosmetically.  
While the developers took inspiration from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the game only slightly reminds of this novel. However, they successfully caught the atmosphere of a little 19th-century town and filled it with deep NPCs and interesting technological details.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
If You like Diablo or Titan Quest, you'll also enjoy "The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing." Unlike in diablo, which is based on biblical Themes, or Titan Quest, which is used in Greek Mythology, Van Helsing plays in a Mixture of Gothic, Noir, Steampunk and Eastern European volklore. Foreword: You shouldn't approach this game with too many Expectations. Neocoregames are not Blizzard. One should therefore not compare Van Helsing with Diablo III, but rather with his Predecessor. And Van Helsing Need not shy away from The direct comparison with Diablo 2 or Titan Quest. Graphically, it's very beautiful and yet very gloomy. The Landscapes sometimes protrude into the Game, whereby a Tree in a certain Viewing angle Covers everything behind it (loot, kisten). Character: As Character classes there is the: Hunter: Who attacks with either 2 Daggers, a long Sword, 2 Pistols or a Rifle, Thaumaturg: The Classic Magician Arcane Mechanic: The Steam-Punk Variation of an Archer which is a slow-shooting but Calls devastating Grenade Launcher its own. Sound: The Voiceover, which is completely in English, has been consistently well done. The remaining Sounds are clear and fit the appropriate Situations. I find the dozens of hidden Allusions to Movies, Books and other Games in this Game particularly positive. For example, you can find a "Gollum" Who wants to protect your Treasure or there is an Easter egg ... Easter Egg heist and ... Actually an Egg is (oO who would have expected it?) The two Main Protagonists Van Helsing and his "Pet" Katarina, who can also be allowed to intervene in the Fight, manage to play into the hearts of the Players because from the Beginning they have something that I have sorely missed in Diablo and Titan Quest. Namely, the character's "Character." Katarina teases Van Helsing from Start to Finish, pulls little Side wipes and both play the Ball permanently, which is a real Joy to listen to their Conversations. The Replay Value is absolutely given thanks to three completely different Character classes, a lot of Steam achievements, tens of different Skills for Van Helsing as well as Katarina And Is always worth it for the almost ridiculous Price of 15 euros. The rather small Game world does not bother either. Negatives:-So far I have only been able to detect one Bug. Sometimes Van Helsing is stuck in a Meadow or a Head start. However, he can free himself by himself, allowing the Game to go further. -In the case Of large Opponent Accumulations, the Frames of the Game like to break in. This is not to do with the PC you are playing on, but simply because the Game has to charge a lot equally in these Moments and is therefore seemingly a bit overwhelmed. (Especially when playing on heroic) Verdict: A Great Game for small Money! If you're into Games alà Diablo, give Van Helsing a Chance. It doesn't reinvent the Wheel, but Its Charm and Wit will offer you some entertaining Hours.
