The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut
Top Critic Average
At it's core, it's technically sound, but the handful of interesting mechanics are lost in a sea of terrible ones, and does an injustice to the titular vampire-hunting doctor.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut is an outstanding action role-playing game. It sets itself apart. The significant amount of content, and the entertainment value, makes for a game that will eat away hours. With a near-endless supply of quests to complete, monsters to slay, and loot to collect, the adventure to Borgovia shouldn't be missed.
A few lingering flaws hurt Van Helsing's swan song, despite the major changes, but it's still a fitting end for the series with tons of fresh content to explore.
Final Cut is definitely an improvement upon the Van Helsing trilogy, without a doubt.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut tries to amalgamate various ideas (many of which are quite original), the gothic setting is cool, the audio-visuals are great despite not being up to par with what the competition offers, and the action is enjoyable besides various unfixed problems, as well as a depressingly low replayability. All this would be just fine if this was about one of the three episodes. Look in the title, though: it says Final Cut; not alpha, not beta, not Early Access - Final. Flaws in episodes I, II, and III, used to be acceptable; not any more.
