Action RPGs have certainly come a long way in last few years. The Diablo series, Torchlight and Torchlight 2 have set a new bar that future games of this genre must now try and compete with. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is one such game that...

Van Helsing isn't a polished game, or even a particularly thoughtful one for most of its campaign, but it has scrappy charm and schlocky character, and it benefits from leaning on one of those design templates that is ultimately really, really difficult to screw up too badly.

Lack of community aside, Van Helsing's only real problem is that it doesn't go the extra mile. Nothing is particularly spectacular, but Neocore's latest game is a tight adventure with a few blemishes here and there, and it will keep fans of the genre enthralled for quite a while, especially if they can rustle up some friends to come along for the ride.

The co-op works even if there is a little lag here and there, and the overall presentation and story kept me entertained throughout. There is a lot in this $15 game, and fans of action RPGs should really take a look at it. I highly suggest it.

But at $15, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a great buy for action-RPG fans. Not only is the Dracula-inspired setting a nice change of scenery, but the interesting gameplay and great dialogue are sure to keep players engrossed.

In single player, Van Helsing is a part-traditional, part-peculiar action-RPG with an endearingly silly plot and just enough vocal flair to carry it off. The restriction of a lone melee/ranged class (and the current lack of a ‘new game plus’) means that there probably isn’t a great deal of replay value for those who like to obsess...

Van Helsing also has a set of perks he can pick among because, well, it was pretty cool in Fallout so there’s no reason it shouldn’t be here. I mostly admire that Neocore is willing to mix some Fallout and Orcs Must Die into my Diablo. If they’d gotten more Diablo in there, I might still be playing.

By HardcoreGamers on 80

The Adventures of Van Helsing is an excellent game that deserves to be played by those looking for an extremely well written experience and for fans of old school RPGs everywhere. With a game length that puts many AAA developers to shame, NeoCore Games punched well above their weight and succeeded where so many indie games have failed in the past.

What The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing may lack in replayability it makes up for in competence, enthusiasm and easy charm. The moment to moment slaughter, the deceptively deep levelling and abundance of powerful loot mean it's a difficult game to put down.

By TheDigitalFix on 70

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will provide at least a dozen hours of extra entertainment for a relatively small investment. Sadly however in no way does it redefine the genre.

By Strategy Informer on 80

Neocore enter the crowded Action RPG marketplace with The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, a title that forgoes some of the genre conventions in favour of a more arcadey approach. As the titular hero (son of Bram Stoker's more famous monster...

She can also be sent to town on a shopping spree if you are getting low on supplies, but doing so leaves you without backup for a whole minute. The playful banter between Van Helsing and Lady Katarina breathes a life into their relationship and solidifies their personalities.

By XGN on 80

Dat is voor de echte ARPG-fan een minpunt, maar het zorgt er wel voor dat nieuwkomers de game ook meteen op kunnen pakken. Qua gameplay gebeurt er dan ook vrij weinig nieuws, maar dat maakt het plezier dat je zult hebben meer dan goed.

If Torchlight is Diablo's little brother, the family just welcomed another baby into the world: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is available on Steam for $15. An XBLA version is also in the works. Van Helsing may not be the kind of action-RPG...

Abraham Van Helsing er egentlig en bifigur i Bram Stokers originale bog om Grev Dracula, men efterhånden har han også fået sit eget liv, ikke mindst i filmen fra 2004, der bare hedder Van Helsing. Rollen som vampyrjæger er jo som skabt til et...
