Critic Reviews for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II is a much better showing than the original. It's what a sequel should be; it improves on nearly everything while adding brand new ideas to the pile. Best of all, the core gameplay mechanics are still a blast to use and really spice up a genre that if often left untouched. It certainly has its shortcomings, but fans of games like the Diablo series, Torchlight, Titan Quest, or Path of Exile will love it.
As a general rule – when your game's release date is just a year after the first, but you've more than doubled the amount of content, you might want to rethink that timeframe. The team has been hard at work on these issues, and there have been frequent updates since release, each nailing down small portions of bugs and balance issues, but it's hard to make a second first impression. Despite the technical issues, NeocoreGames ultimately delivers more of what we fell in love with in the first Van Helsing title. Hopefully they take a little more time to iron things out to conclude this very compelling trilogy.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II is not just a Diablo clone. It's incredibly fun and offers a wide variety of unique aspects of the game to have it stand out on its own. If you didn't play the first game, you may be a little confused in terms of the story, but it's an incredibly fun game.
