Victor Vran Reviews
Sure, even middling ARPGs are almost always fun for an hour or so, but Victor Vran will keep you hitting stuff and collecting loot for a lot longer than you might expect.
A limp story and weak jokes are worth putting up with for Victor Vran's great combat system.
Victor Vran treads familiar ground, bringing exciting combat to an overall sufficient action RPG.
Victor Vran shows that Haemimont Games have more in their arsenal than just city building with dictators. As far as Diablo clones go, it isn't of the same calibre as Path of Exile due to its rather simplistic nature and the overabundance of the six primary enemy types, but it does feature some neat gameplay twists of its own. It's worth a look if you are starved of action RPGs, with the emphasis on action.
It will not satisfy the most demanding players, but if you're looking for a Diablo-like game with fun and mindless combat, Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is your game.

Bulgaria-based Haemimont Games has wrought a fun if sometimes repetitive action RPG with dozens of hours of monster-infested dungeons to wade through
It certainly doesn't get to join the elite group, but if you're after some ARPG entertainment, it more than fits the role. I'm far from finished, after spending a hefty amount of time with it, so there's a lot on offer here, not least with the incentive to replay older sections to perfection. Turn the voices down, put a podcast on, and sink in.
In the end, Victor Vran is a great action RPG that should be considered. It is not the best out there currently but it is has unique aspects and contains hours of fun.
Victor Vran is a title that initially feels like it's going to be more indie fodder but is much more than that. Despite the voice actors that were used, underneath a relatively bland story lies extremely addictive and highly enjoyable gameplay.
Victor Vran is a great addition to the action role-playing genre with its entertaining gameplay elements. Bold design concepts, such as the inclusion of WASD keys for movement and combat, work perfectly with the genre type. The wealth of content and addictive nature of collecting loot and replaying levels with increased challenge make Victor Vran highly recommended for action RPG fans.
I would recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of action-RPGs with more of a focus on combat and less on character building.
A great ARPG and a great entry into the hack n' slash genre. It's compelling and engaging in ways you might not think such games traditionally are.
If you're a fan of isometric RPGs and action, I think the choice is pretty clear, we have a winner. Victor Vran might be a title that gets judged before people really get their hands on it. I'll admit, I had no idea what the game was like and by just looking at it, seemed typical. Yet the amount of fun the game offers, providing players with more agility and faster action, really gives a sense of control some isometric games don't deliver. I was thoroughly impressed with Victor Vran, and I think most others will be too.
Victor Vran is an RPG designed with players like myself in mind, those whom like the idea of an intriguing world but with no class based limitations on what they can and can't do. It's fun for 5 minutes tearing your way through enemies, chaining attacks together, yet suddenly hours have past and you'll still be happily swinging a mighty warhammer. The environments fit the style and steampunk theme of the game, though some do fade into the background – being somewhat unremarkable. Nevertheless, for the fun that is on offer Zagoravia is a city worth venturing in!
A hidden co-op gem for action RPG fans.
Victor Vran almost does everything right but suffers from the same faults from just about every action RPG on the market. The story is uninspired, and unless you are planning to play with friends, you may have trouble finding other online players at your level. The combat system is enjoyable, as you test out different types of weapons. Even after completing the story, I had places on the map that I never unlocked. If you are a completionist, attempting to complete all of the objectives on every area will keep you busy for quite some time. Not to mention the allure of finding sick new loot, and the constant content being added to the game.
Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is a robust, enjoyable dungeon crawler with satisfying combat mechanics, marred only by a single, game-breaking bug on Xbox One. This issue aside, Victor Vran is genuinely excellent.
Victor Vran is a very competent and solid game that dungeon crawling ARPG fans should not miss.
It's a good romp run through ruins and wreaking havoc with demon powers, but does not provide much more substance than that.
