Summary: Whether you purchase or rent this game really depends on how much you have or are willing to spend on games and as this is a full priced game I would probably suggest renting it as it’s a relatively short game and would only warrant a purchase if you really like the game, are a massive fan of the...
Excerpt: It’s not that the film was that bad, it just wasn’t particularly enjoyable popcorn fodder for your intrepid reviewer here. I found it something of a “ Blade lite” in fact, sans the decent soundtrack and action set pieces. Its gaming brethren nearly suffers the same fate.
Excerpt: The latest action character to make it to the big screen, Van Helsing , also greets his fans in a new game that puts you inside the movie. The levels are fairly big in size, and the level of detail in both the scenery and the character models is outstanding.

Its problems lie in the fact that it gets stale quite quickly, and when it's over, there isn't much to bring you back to...
Pros: Good use of the movie license., Looks great., Stylish action.

Pelin muutamat ongelmat estävät peliä olemasta turhan varteenotettava peli, mikä on sääli sillä Van Helsing ei ole täysin surkea...

Cons: - Ajoittaiset kameraonglemat, - Putkimaiset kentät, - Huonosti balanssoitu vaikeus, - Lyhyt pelikokemus
