About

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II is an action-RPG game, a second installment in the series set in a fictional universe.

Plot and setting

The game’s story picks up after its predecessor, continuing the legacy of a legendary vampire hunter’s son set out on different quests, with the ultimate goal of protecting humankind from various monsters. As well as the first game, Van Helsing II is based on different gothic fantasy tales, with elements from Stoker’s Dracula as the main source of influence. However, despite the grim setting, the series offers comic relief elements through dialogues, NPCs and many more references.

Gameplay

Regarding game mechanics, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing follow the steps of the genre’s progenitor, Diablo, with hordes of enemies to combat with, various classes for the main character, large, and different loot. The new elements in the second part of the series are various interactions with the rebels, where the protagonist can train and assemble task teams and send them out on different side quests.

Graphical elements and other features

The game engine is shared between both installments of the series; however, the second game brings out smoothened textures, corners, and almost every detail, making slight improvements while staying true to the steampunk setting and overall tone. The game also offers a cooperative multiplayer campaign, and a competitive multiplayer mode, where up to 8 players can engage in PvP battles.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II reviews and comments

First of all, of course, you have to be able to get involved in the Genre, then it's a great Title that can take on games like Diablo. The Story starts almost after the first Part and is really cool again. The End may be foreseeable, but the och is being offered an epic Showdown that I haven't experienced on this Scale. The Gameplay hasn't changed significantly. What has been added are more available Classes, from which I-instead of importing my old Char-have chosen the Archanen Mechanic And played the Game with him on "Heavy." There are also new Skills and you can now level up to level 60. You can also unlock a Pet that supports you in Battle. The Tower Defense Passages have been improved and if you don't Feel like it, just let them get done by their Lackeys. You can now send a few Commands on Missions to farm gold and Items. So all in all Incredible Van Helsing 1 with a little better Graphics and a few New Features. If you liked the first Part, you have to play the 2nd part! What I personally like best about this Game is the Soundtrack! I received it in the Bundle for free and have to say: WOW! It's not often that a Soundtrack manages to convey the Atmosphere as well. Clearly a great Performance. Especially when you consider that this is a relatively small Studio! Pros:-better Graphics than in the 1st Part-Gameplay retained + good Innovations-Pet & nice Incantations-voice Action first class-Again with you: Companion with the hot Russian Accent! -Soundtrack stunning-very reasonable difficulty level Levels (easy is really light and also really hard) Cons:-Questsites not always quite clear-Chapter Transitions unannounced And not undone (so unfortunately have 2 Side Quests in Chapter 2 missed)-Open End (good in itself), with apparently poor continuation price recommendation: Up to €10 including DLC's (get the Soundtrack, it's worth it)

Beautiful second Part of the Series with optional tower Defense Maps. I really enjoyed the Game. You can pick other Heroes you want to play so it doesn't play as much as the first Part. The TD mentioned IS also very well implemented and at least I have always been eagerly awaiting the next Map announcement in between. You clap through Crowds of Enemies trying to reach your Building Center. At different Running Points, you can choose from a few Buildings and Unit Types To help you with this. There are then a few Rounds of play, where you can of course earn points to upgrade the Buildings. In addition, I free a Chimera that I can send on Missions, which then brings me Equipment and becomes stronger myself. On my Mission I can then call them to me as a second Person, so that together with the Spirit we can kill three on the Opponents. Super fun, very motivating. These two Features clearly make the second Part the best Part of the Series, because in the third Part, both are almost completely missing again. That could have been quietly allowed to continue in, I would have been in for even more of it. What should I say about the other Things? Graphics, Sound, Map design, story, Gameplay and Fun is all as usual top Leagues and an AbDiablo absolutely equal. I like the funny Sayings of the two Main Characters very much, also the many Eastereggs and Defiations in the Game itself are great Class. I'm going to upload a few Pictures of it. The Game offers a lot of Estellation Options in terms of Difficulty, Gameplay and Graphics Options. This is really exemplary. One Thing that really struck me is that you're not allowed to play the Story Additional DLC right after the campaign. You have to turn your Hero into a Veteran and then play through the whole Campaign again before you have Access to it. This is only mentioned as Semi-a minute on the Shop Side as exactly. On a Side Mission I probably had a stupid Bow, so I could no longer complete the Mission in order, otherwise the Game was very stable and. All in all, Van Helsing is a great Game, it really entertained me very well, absolute Duty to do business for action and Role-playing lovers! Rating: 9/10
