The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II

Destructoid
6 July 2014
  • Summary: The first Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing wasn't a bad game, however it did have crippling technical issues that held it back. Those issues have since been fixed, and developer Neocore Games has learned a lot in the process, it seems.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 Review (PC)

Softpedia
25 June 2014
  • Excerpt: One of the best things about the first installment in the series was that it was full of Easter eggs and pop culture references, as well as of self-deprecating humor that addressed the tropes of the genre, along with some of the more ridiculous content inside the game, making many users overlook...

  • Summary: I've tried these isometric, dungeon-crawling role-playing games before, and while I enjoyed games like Diablo III and such, I just find it hard for them to keep up my interest enough to finish the games.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II

DarkStation

  • Conclusion: Van Helsing II is very much the same game as its predecessor, just with “more.” While still as fun as the first, there’s a lack of actual overall progress, just a reshuffling of used ideas. Given the ending, it’s assured that we’ll see a third game.

  • Excerpt: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing seemingly snuck under a lot of people's radars, despite being a highly enjoyable alternative to the bigger loot-based action RPGs out there, and it has now been joined by this second part of a planned trilogy.

  • Conclusion: I opened this review by talking about the dangers of going into a project knowing you intend it to be part of a larger whole - in this instance, a trilogy. After playing Van Helsing II, Neocore games have another problem on their hands after this - not that they held stuff back, but that they gave...

  • Summary: Like its predecessor, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II bills itself as a "gothic-noir adventure." While there are too many pop culture references and too much comedic relief for the "noir" part of that label to stick, the general tone is one of grim expressionism, bolstered by some finely...
  • Pros: Excellent world-building, After the introduction, it really opens up, Dense environments that give you plenty to do, Quick, rewarding combat
  • Cons: Agonizingly slow start, Awkward, cluttered narrative
