  • 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 film and expect to play through the game multiple times.

  • Excerpt: Games licensed from summer movies tend to be pretty awful, so when you play one that isn’t it is always a nice surprise. Not that Van Helsing is a great game as it certainly has some issues and shortcomings, but if you enjoyed the movie and want to make a quick romp through its storyline Van Helsing will fit the bill.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Gamers who can't sit still and wait for Devil May Cry 3 are advised to pick up Van Helsing to fill the void, and re-taste classic DMC gameplay before Capcom rewrites the formula with its highly anticipated prequel. Any fans of the movie need to get out of their chair now (or after you're done lounging) and purchase.

  • Conclusion: Van Helsing is a fair game, with good use of the film's license. It looks lovely most of the time, with great authenticity, atmospheric sound, and some very enjoyable gameplay. 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 play again. However, fans of the Van Helsing movie, Devil May Cry, or a simple quick fix of fast, fun gameplay, should give this a look.
  • Pros: Good use of the movie license., Looks great., Stylish action.
  • Cons: The gameplay is too repetitive, so the game grows old quickly., Low replay value., Some annoying camera angles.

  • Summary: Zugegeben, die stark an "Devil May Cry" erinnernde Metzelorgie macht Spaß, aber etwas mehr Abwechslung und längere Spieldauer hätten ihr nicht geschadet. Dennoch bleibt eine technisch einwandfreie aber nicht brillante Umsetzung des Kinostoffs, der es halt leider etwas an Story fehlt. Die Atmosphäre des Kinooriginals kommt jedenfalls sehr gut rüber.

  • Conclusion: Banorna bjuder på gotisk arkitektur, vilket är riktigt stämningsfullt. Synd bara att samma miljöer återkommer hela tiden. Ljuseffekter lyser upp snyggt och animationen funkar. Så länge man nöjer sig med att skjuta fungerar kontrollen helt okej. Men närstridsattackerna är sega och svåra att kombinera med avståndsattacker. Även om miljö, ljud, röster och fiender skapar rätt stämning så blir det en överdos av klassiska monster och fåniga idéer till slut.
  • Pros: Bra interface, Läcker minigun, Gotiska miljöer
  • Cons: Förutsägbara bossar, Variationslösa strider, Kort, Fånigt bonusmaterial, Övertydliga ledtrådar, Kameran
