you are a huge fan of Devil May Cry, then you'll love
Van Helsing as the gameplay is very similar. Following
the basic movie plot, monster hunter Van Helsing is on a holy
quest to rid the world of demons.
looks great, it plays great, but there are a few things that
make it a tad annoying. Firstly if you enter an area, kill
all the demons and then leave and come back, more demons appear
- which is a real pain. Also the fixed camera position is
a real sticking point as it's not always easy to see where
you can go.
problem is the weapons you get throughout the game - we actually
discovered that most baddies were best dispatched using the
twin pistols that you start the game with. This is especially
the case with the huge boss monsters.
this game has a lot to offer, and is certainly worth taking
a look at. There are a selection of mini-games to be found
while you are wandering around the gaming environment. You
need to collect an egg, and then place them on the pedestals
which are dotted around. These then take you to games where
you have to perform a set task within a time limit (for example
kill all the demons, or smash all the statues). These are
not easy tasks, but are great, mindless fun.
easy level is a little too easy and most experienced games
will probably be able to finish the whole game in a day or
two. But, once completed, you can replay the game and use
any of the cheats you found along the way, as well as opening
up secret areas that were impossible to access the first time
you liked the movie and are a fan of Devil May Cry style
games, then this is a game you have to buy. And even if you
are not a huge fan of either, this is still worth a look.
It's entertaining, it looks great and will certainly keep
you entertained for a few weeks.
