The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Review
Vampires, werewolves and other creatures of the night. Nothing resists the power of Van Helsing, who stars in this intense action role adventure developed by Neocore Games.
Blindly following the mythology own stories inspired by creatures of the night, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing puts us in the shoes of a direct descendant of this illustrious monster hunter, who has traveled to the gloomy lands Borgovia to clarify the dark mystery that haunts the inhabitants. Interesting starting point for an entertaining story that does not fail to impress by their constant references to monsters and literary accounts of popular culture, and especially for his great sense of humor, sometimes very black-, derived from the odd relationship that shares our hero and his companion: the wandering spirit of a woman with a tongue as sharp as his own claws.
At this point, yes, we feel that the combat system is somewhat simpler in terms of battle options at our disposal. That despite having the ability to create certain combos mixing various special abilities, creating effects as varied as harmful to the enemy. For example, to give you an idea, to improve certain attributes related to firearms, our shots may generate small bursts of fire affecting several enemies at once, the same way a sword may drain the life contrary. The options in this case, although not very high, are more than acceptable, but in the long run, as we said, the action ends up falling in a certain degree of monotony and simplicity that overshadows anything the end result.
The variety of locations is very remarkable. The design of the game environments and the creatures that inhabit it is one of the great attractions of the program.
Playing on higher difficulty levels is a challenge, when being attached by dozen of enemies.
