  • Summary: In Van Helsing III, the civil war is over in Borgovia, but the future looks grim. The city of weird science is in ruins, squabbling factions and criminals fight for power and a strange cult prophesizes the coming of “The end of times.” And they might be just right: A wave of uncanny eventsIn Van Helsing III, the civil war is over in Borgovia, but the future looks grim. The city of weird science is in ruins, squabbling factions and criminals fight for power and a strange cult prophesizes the coming of “The end of times.” And they might be just right: A wave of uncanny events shakes the land, and it’s all connected to a mysterious creature, a former ally turned into a fearful arch-villain. Which means that Van Helsing will do what he does best: He wields weapons, prepares his deadly tricks, and hunts down the most dangerous monster who has ever lived… and this time it’s personal. He’s prepared to do anything to achieve his goal, even to face the darkest secret about the birth of the modern Borgovia. Expand

    NeocoreGames delivers yet another satisfying and solid action role-playing game with The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III. Being the conclusion to a trilogy, the third installment includes all of the series favorite elements while also introducing a wealth of improvements. It's a great time to adventure once again to Borgovia.

    All in all, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III is a little too complex for its own good. It’s always nice to have variety, but when you have to trawl through everything and the kitchen sink to find your ideal build, it takes some of the fun out of it.

    Van Helsing isn't a bad game at all, but it lacks the features needed to become a worthy culmination of a saga that, with the first two chapters, had shown a catchier gameplay.

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3 is a good-looking game but the lack of features from the previous entries are a sore point

    Anyone who follows this series will still be entertained with The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III, but they'll ultimately be disappointed by the overly steamlined nature of this installment.

    It should be labeled: "only for core fans“. Third installment of Van Helsing is not entirely bad, but it’s average and completely misses its mark..

There are 6 great classes to choose from who all have their strengths and weaknesses. However I seemed to notice that the elementalist (wizard) seems a bit overpowered, since I'm having no difficulty als can take on large groups of enemies. At the humble price it stand, I would definitely check it out! Expand

    some INK MAPS are far more beautiful than in VH 1 or 2, they are stunning, marvelous.

    The low price, solid gameplay and writing together with the great style of this game means that it should be getting at least an 8/10 for me.The low price, solid gameplay and writing together with the great style of this game means that it should be getting at least an 8/10 for me. But it isn't, because it cuts back many of the elements that made the first two games great. The skills have been greatly reduced, item sets removed, reduced level cap, simplified gameplay and very limited Van Helsing 2 save game porting. In fact, I couldn't port my character from the second game as it just won't detect it. I'm quite disappointed, but since almost all games don't do this, I won't be so mad about it. That said, it still retains the great writing and funny dialogues, which count a lot, for me. Combine this with the low asking price, and it earns a solid 7/10 for me. Expand

    This is the final installment of the Van Helsing series, and if you had hoped it would end on a high note you'll be disappointed. VH3 isThis is the final installment of the Van Helsing series, and if you had hoped it would end on a high note you'll be disappointed. VH3 is definitely a downgrade over the previous games, the biggest regression being the skill system, it has been dumbed-down by removing many skills and changing others, this leaves you with very little choice when it comes to creating your build. The toughest decision you'll have to make is which of the skills you'll max out first, as you'll end up maxing out most of them by the end anyway. Another major issue with the game is simply the classes aren't fun to play, the skills are boring, the skill trees are bland and I honestly felt only two of the six classes were enjoyable enough to finish the game with.

    If you can get past the boring classes and restrictive skill system another backtrack from previous games is the loot, much like in VH1 you will rarely find any legendary items, by the end of my play-through I only had two equipped. In VH2 this was fixed and the loot progression was great, I was regularly finding interesting, build changing legionaries and I have no idea why they went back on this in VH3.

    Now if you can look past the bad, underneath it's the same old Van Helsing, so if you enjoyed the first two games you'll probably enjoy this one too, just not as much as the previous entries. The solid voice work and humor once again carries the game and makes you forgive certain downfalls, and if you want to see how the story ends I would suggest picking the game up when it's 50 - 75% off as it's not worth full price. That being said, if you own all the Van Helsing games you will be entitled to the Final Cut edition for free which is releasing next month, it's basically all three games combined and improved (although we're not sure how, but they have said they're overhauling the skill system which was absolutely necessary IMO). My advice would be to wait and play the Final Cut edition, instead of playing VH3 as a standalone game.
