    In short, the dialogue was witty, amusing, and full of fun references. The graphics were beautiful and had a fitting art style that added to the game. And the story was interesting and made me want to play more.

    TIAOVH2 is hands down the best single-player action-RPG out there, with engaging gameplay full of discrete doses of witty humour. It shines for catering for the casual player while offering exhaustively deep gameplay elements for the hardcore player at the same time. A few optimization hiccups deprive the game of an almost perfect grade, yet I cannot wait to see the third installment of the series.

    Part two of the Van Helsing game is a great sequel in every aspect. There are more options for you to choose from and the expansion of the skill tree is another plus. All of this comes with a relatively low price.

    It solves many of the problems of the original game, and even though it's not perfect, it's a good choice if you're looking for a game of this genre.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II takes the original formula and build a sequel fun and rich in contents, even if technically imperfect and a bit poor of new core gameplay mechanics.

    Balance issues and multiplayer bugs remain, but there's enough variety found in its tower defense scenarios and three classes to warrant donning the legendary monster hunter's hat either again or for the very first time.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II is a very weak sequel with lots of technical issues and poor choices in terms of gameplay mechanics. New adventures of Van Helsing is still funny and can show off its excellent, steampunk atmosphere, but all in all it's not a good game. The developers failed to fix mistakes from the original and added some new ones.

    I enjoyed the first Van Helsing and didn't have any issues except overheating of my video card but once I lowered down to 720p it was all goodI enjoyed the first Van Helsing and didn't have any issues except overheating of my video card but once I lowered down to 720p it was all good and still very Nice. I should upgrade. Van Helsing II doesn't seam to cause any issues with my video. Hmm maybe better written? Also I just find some of the Pop culture references in the game so amusing. This Private Brian better be special if I am going to save him LOL. Expand

Veteran of Titan quest, Diablo 1-3, Torchlight, PoE and backer of Grim dawn giving VH2 2 thumbs up. The lack of publicity for this game is mind boggling! Expand

    Major step down from the first part. I could excuse lots of bugs, since it is matter of time till they will get fix. But gameplay became dullMajor step down from the first part. I could excuse lots of bugs, since it is matter of time till they will get fix. But gameplay became dull and dumb: ability to change difficulty anytime you want, no hardcore mode (you can switch hc/sc for a character anytime too), no balance whatsoever on top of other casual mechanics which we all already got used.
    There were three good things about the first game - story, gameplay and atmosphere as a result of first two. Now there's only story left, which is pretty short and unfinished with aiming for 3rd part.
    New features like chimera and rune-crafting are insignificant, irrelevant and dull.
    Big disappointment, i felt like it could be a great ARPG after failed D3, but Neocore decided to yield mainstream and casual players as well. And for those there already are polished games from major companies with more content.
