Of course, the argument for this version of the game is improved thanks to the fact it includes two solid expansions, one of which instantly makes the game better thanks to the presence of Motörhead!

Overall Fractured Worlds does have some good additions, but the core hook will have limited appeal and the performance issues unique to it badly need ironing out. ... Motörhead: Through the Ages, on the other hand, looks as if it's had more care and attention put into it.

Blizzard fans have a terrific opportunity to get accustomed to the style of play on the Switch and will have a fun title to play heading into the fall. For the rest of us, Victor Vran is a terrific option to dip your toes into the genre. The wide range of combat options and the openness that is maintained throughout makes it accessible to a wider range of audience. If you enjoy overpowering dozens of enemies with wanton acts of destruction, you'll have a hell of a good time with Victor Vran.

Diablo-style games aren't all that rare, but the best ones are worth appreciating. Victor Vran is such a game. The slightly uninspiring name belies a huge action-RPG with great combat, clever platforming, and a welcome sense of humor.

It’s safe to say that there is a lot included in Victor Vran: Overkill Edition. Whether you’re playing through the story solo or with a friend, there is plenty to keep you occupied. Even if you don’t get around to doing very little thing, there’s well over 50 hours of gameplay here if you're determined to stick around.

Overall, I think Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is definitely a game worth a play.  While the comparisons to Diablo III will obviously be made, Victor Vran adds different mechanics to shake up the tried-and-true ARPG format and does a great job doing so.  Adding the ability to play the game on the go means you can keep your loot grind going whenever you have a chance.  And come on, who doesn't want to power slide through a bunch of demons?

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is a fantastic dungeon crawler with a lot to offer. It has a ton of content at a great price, and it's fun from start to finish. My only complaint is that the text in the menus is a bit on the small side. Other than that, the game plays flawlessly and is very well polished, with first class voice acting. You're going to spend dozens of hours playing this one and its two expansions if you want to get all trophies. Are you up for the challenge?

It is just as competent as the heavy hitters in the dungeon crawling genre. The online works well, and with four player co-op, it can be a blast to play with friends. I highly suggest Victor Vran to any action RPG fan.

While it’s inevitable for Victor Vran to be compared to the series that obviously inspired it presuming that it is merely a clone or some lesser attempt would be a mistake. It may borrow elements, but aside from having great core gameplay it also does some things very differently, and even as someone who had invested hundreds of hours into the Diablo series I appreciate there being a strong competitor out there that has dared to be different. If you’re seeking some challenging and satisfying action RPG gameplay on the Switch, Victor Vran absolutely delivers.

The port from PC to PS4 has been absolutely great as far as I can tell and with even more content then the base game for a price of $39.99, it's hard to find a reason not to recommend this game. It has online play, couch co-op, and it offers plenty of playtime. My biggest issues are of the voice work and some areas seemingly bleeding together in visual style. Otherwise Victor Vran complete collection is a great choice and once that fans of the genre def. need to check out.

A surprisingly immediate, console-centric ARPG with a gleefully tactile combat system, Victor Vran: Overkill Edition has its fair share of rough edges and a slightly discordant tone, but is nevertheless a highly entertaining way for Diablo fans to while away the hours until the real deal arrives on Nintendo's console.

With the recent news that Diablo III Eternal Collection will release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months, Haemimont Games will have cursed their luck. But, for those wanting to scratch that same itch, this Gothic-themed romp is easily the best alternative on the portable home console. Victor Vran: Overkill Edition comes packed with more than enough content to justify the price of admission, just don’t expect your demon hunting to be an easy ride.

Victor Vran is not the definitive ARPG title in Switch but it will delight fans of the genre and he knows how to play his cards well, with a limited technical finish that although at some point he will suffer to maintain the 30 fps offered, his Jump to portable mode is undoubtedly successful and clears the horizon for the arrival of new games of this court.

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition treats gamers to a dungeon crawling experience that doesn’t really do much to evolve upon the traditional formula, but offers plenty of enjoyment with its hacking, slashing, and loot collecting action. It certainly keeps everything simple and can suffer from repetition over time, but it doesn’t stop the game being fun. The challenges will keep you tested even after you’ve finished the game, the extra expansions give you some more meaty adventures to play through once you’re through with the base game, whilst the fact you can do it all in multiplayer with friends will ensure you’re kept coming back for more. All in all, Victor Vran: Overkill Edition makes for a nice little dungeon-crawling package for console gamers to play through. The simplistic nature of the game won’t blow you away, but it will offer plenty of hours of demon slaying fun.

More action than RPG, Victor Vran arrives on consoles with a rich Overkill Edition, containing both DLCs and the known humour: if this will be enough or not depends solely on if you already had a chance to play it on PC. Otherwise, we're talking about a solid alternative to Dablo III and the likes.

I can recall how enjoyable it was to play through the final boss of the game as it is not a pure hack and slash kind of boss fight. If you are looking for a game that is similar to Diablo III but is tired of the Diablo III gameplay then this game is something you should check out.

Victor Vran Overkill Edition is a delightfully dark romp through dark and distorted Victorian areas, backed by a witty protagonist. While there is a lot of fun to be had, fighting the same enemies can get old in extended sessions, and menus can be hard to navigate.

Victor Vran takes the isometric action RPG genre and puts a different spin on it. The game's combination of gameplay mechanics set it apart and its execution, while simpler in some aspects than its constituents, is excellently accomplished, making it one of the more polished games in the genre. And while it does feature dark and serious themes, the game doesn't take itself too seriously, allowing for some elements of humor which add even further to its appeal and enjoyment. The Overkill Edition also comes with some excellent pieces of DLC that not only provide an additional element of replayability to the game but also combine to give players three significantly different yet enjoyable experiences in a single title.

The high-energy fun of Victor Vran means it really is a romp, if one that occasionally stutters. While the slightly repetitive nature grates, you can easily see a few hours dissolving into Victor Vran before your very eyes. Like a vampire in sunlight.

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition doesn't revolutionise the action RPG genre, but it certainly has helped it evolve. The scrapping of class systems and skill trees gives you more control over the character that you want to make, while the hordes of collectable loot will keep you chopping and changing your loadout for a long time. While its story is a little stale and there is still something very conventional about how Haemimont Games' latest is set out, the variety of gameplay and four-player co-op will keep you coming back to Zagoravia for hours.

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is not much of an RPG. It is much closer to being a loud arcade action game that is best played with buddies online. As a successor to Diablo, it doesn't really work, but it is more than worthy to succeed Gauntlet Legends. The story in the core game is really inconsequential and generally cheaply presented, with heavily filtered stills, which is disappointing since the in-game character models look good enough. The action gets tedious after a while, and Victor will spend a lot of the game retracing his steps looking for missed loot or items. Victor Vran is only enjoyable in short bursts, and excessive play time will lead to zombification or slumber.

At its best, Victor Vran is an addictive action RPG with a great sense of progression and a strong visual identity of its own. At its worst, Overkill Edition muddies up a solid foundation with poor sound mixing, an unintuitive UI, and a choppy frame-rate, coupled with slowdown.
