    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.

    The "Final Cut" version brings the gameplay mechanisms from The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III to the whole adventure. With great respect to the gamers who already have all three games of the trilogy, there is no doubt that it is one of the best action/RPG games of recent years.

    Neocore Games is offering a truly enticing game with the Final Cut edition, rich in content that fans of the hack ‘n’ slash RPG genre should not miss out on.

    For all its sloppy seconds and used structures, I can’t help but feel a little disappointed in the end that the developer didn’t try to evolve beyond just being another clone.

    Final Cut is definitely an improvement upon the Van Helsing trilogy, without a doubt.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut is a game I really wanted to like, but ultimately just made me wish I was playing Diablo or Torchlight instead. 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.

I fear this game won't get the attention it deserves, but I really hope I'm wrong, as this game shines where many hack and slash nowadays are so often bland and boring. I'll go as far as to say that this game has a soul… something you can’t put your finger on, but that will keep you playing and enjoying the experience from the beginning to the end.

    I first want to applaud Neocore Games for this revamped edition, enhancing almost every aspect of the previous entries. While the first releases were kind of rough gems, this final cut now renders everything more accessible, from the difficulty, to the various classes and skill trees.

    There’s a lot to like about this game, from the steampunk setting, to the quality of the audio and voices of the main protagonists, to the high number of hiddens that can be found for those willing to pay attention to conversations and to explore the environment. While hack and slash games are mostly about mindless killing and loot, the incredible adventures of Van Helsing do try to bring fresh and enjoyable elements on the table.

    Many skills are available and almost any build can be viable, while all of them can be changed easily if your choices leave you insatisfied. One key point of the game lie in the interaction and cooperation between Van Helsing and his ghostly companion, lady Katarina, which you can level up too, as you see fit. Their conversations are often funny, while never trying too much to be.

    From the tower defense parts to the optional quests, a lot of care has been taken into the differents parts of the game and into details. I highly recommend anyone loving the genre to give it a try. As for now, the bugs I personally encountered have been fixed so far and Neocore games support has been fast and helpful when needed. There are still balance issues between classes, but nothing that should keep your from enjoying a great and quite unique action rpg.

    I played 3 separate games and now I'm excited about the start of this new compiled version. After playing 28 hours using two differentI played 3 separate games and now I'm excited about the start of this new compiled version. After playing 28 hours using two different characters I write this criticism to praise the work of developers. Everything is improved.
    Character classes that are available are sufficient to achieve plenty of adventures in the game. The skill tree is efficient and clear. If you fail there are always return options.
    The growth of the degree of difficulty between levels may require some adjustments for improved balance. There are jumps between current levels (big jumps, a canyon). Each level can show power and strength of opponents no comparison to the level of the character. If you change the difficulty of the game, imbalance reverses. We are ant on a level of the game and are giants choose one below. This is annoying. But it does not end with the proposal of the game. Only this needs adjustments.
    Graphics are very good. Environments load time is fast. I have no problem with online system. There may be, but I played around 30 hours and have not seen happen problems with the online system. Although, I played very little multiplayer to speak of it for sure. My view is directly to the gameplay alone.
    For this, the game is fully satisfying and fun as it was the first play of the series. I liked it and recommend it.

    Nice little ARPG. I wish they had made it so if you had already played 1 & 2 you didn't have to replay them again. But the game isn't thatNice little ARPG. I wish they had made it so if you had already played 1 & 2 you didn't have to replay them again. But the game isn't that long such that it couldn't be beaten in a couple of days.

    Overall the elements are standard fair. The leveling is particularly fast even at later levels. The reputation system seems underdeveloped though as I was only around 10 even though I beat everything. This makes the perks pretty much useless.

    Most encounters are OK provided you choose the right character. But most bosses tended to 1-hit key you because of the lackluster approach to health regen. They also tended to spawn enemies continuously. You pretty much need a "heal on hit" to survive. Overall though not a difficult game.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing was not exactly the game I was expecting, but I found myself liking it more than I wanted to. TheThe Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing was not exactly the game I was expecting, but I found myself liking it more than I wanted to. The game is a type of of game that tells me a lot, I grew up playing games like Diablo, Titan Quest and Dungeon Siege but recently it has been very difficult to find another good game of the genre, with the exception of Path of Exile.

    Despite not being fantastic Van Helsing satisfied my desire for a game of the genre.
    Visually the game is OK, not impressive, but the world seems awesome with a amazing gothic style with a lot steampunk elements that I quite enjoyed.
    Mechanically the game is easy to catch but very diverse, with an enormous and vast skill tree. You have 6 very different classes to choose, and before starting the game properly I found myself playing each one for a few, to see the one that suits best my play style. This diversity is something very positive since the classes are so diverse it is possible to replay the game, over and over again, in a very different way without getting bored or finding it repeatable.

    Overall the game is quite good, and if you are like me a fan of the genre give it a try. I fully recommend it and hope you all enjoy it too!

    -delayed 2 times
    -bugs with redeem keycode
    -bugs with windows 10
    -bugs with multiplayer
    -small community so there is no theorycrafting, no open matches

    Well, i appreciate that this 3rd time it has gone live, but maybe it's still a sort of a beta.
    Wait and see if it gets fixed. It's promising, though

    Let me retype that, so you are clear. Mouse and keyboard are completely disabled if a gamepad is connected. In a game released in 2015.

    The only way to re-enable is to use your gamepad to access the options menu. A deal breaker for your basic 360 plugged into a USB port, but for someone with a bluetooth PS3 controller, its beyond a deal breaker. This game was a gift, or I would have steam refunded it immediately.

    Intolerable.
