The first part of the adventure known fighter with evil spirits had a number of attractive items. The game was unique style, good graphics component, accompanied by a charming companion of the hero – the specter of a capricious nature of the aristocracy. During the adventure we met all sorts of parodies of well-known fairy-tale characters and not only. Otherwise it was a clone of the well-known Diablo, made, unfortunately, without proper attention to the development of the abilities of the protagonist. But since the game did not ask for the entire cost of the defects could safely close your eyes.
For a perfect sequel to developers only had to fix deficiencies of the original, but at the same time they decided not to stay.
The second part of the series – not exactly a sequel. Rather, it is the second act of a play. If you’ve played the first part, it is possible to transfer the pumped hero or create an entirely new level thirtieth.In addition to various skill tree guys from Neocore Games have added two classes. Thauntmage first was available as a supplement to the first part and is analogous to the usual magician. The second class is called Arcane Mechanic, representing an engineer, a native of the enemy army.
The history starts with the continuation of the first part of the finale. Van Helsing wins in an unequal battle mad professor. However, after the battle of all explodes and the hero finds himself in the underground floors under the rubble stones. Farewell to life, he’s going to give up, but the aid comes a mysterious stranger. At this time in the city returns general who promises to wrest from the hands of the rebels Borgoviyu. Opposing army general history devoted to the second part of “an incredible adventure.”
Scenario can hardly boast of unexpected twists, but not bored allows great humor. On the way hunter monsters still meet characters from different universes. During urban battles can meet a robot that will inquire, not whether you are a Sarah Connor in jail or find Mr. Hyde, who solemnly assured that no longer kill anyone. Among other things, the developers added a statistics screen after each chapter, where you can find out whether all the secrets could find.
Starting unlikely to please. We run around the map and perform some simple tasks for the rebels.Decoration familiar and new enemies in no hurry to surprise appearance or powerful abilities.Therefore, in the first hours of the game hard to contain a yawn.
Back at the lair, immediately forget about the negative experiences. We dipped into the everyday rebel camp. After the events of the first part of Van Helsing is not only famous fighter against evil spirits, but also becomes a hero of the resistance, so trust him to manage their troops. You can send the generals on different tasks, the fulfillment of which brings money and various little things.Generals grow in levels, they can improve the performance. Each of them is good in its own way, so you must explicitly select subordinates to accomplish the mission. Also in the headquarters, we can perform a mission-style Tower Defence, in the first part. In other words, build traps in the maze and restrain wave hitters.
During the promotion campaign Van Helsing tames unusual creature, chimera. The animal is not only useful in combat. He hunts and brings prey in the form of objects and money. In addition, we engage in our “city” scientist able to improve things by using runes.
Battles with monsters is no change. Enemies prefer to shove the crowd. The number of monsters sometimes so great that it is impossible to figure protagonist among them to see. Moreover, now there are monsters in battles that produce, call, give rise to small creatures. To reach them, we must literally fight their way through the raging horde. Army General presented the soldiers with firearms, tanks, robots, and so on. So often just do not see who shoots from behind the screen.
The authors continue to rely on quantity rather than quality. A lot of new skills, but they are not the original name. Interesting tricks enemies also not added. Missing the big boss, and the final battle again performed in the spirit of “one against the army.” But to play a whole lot of fun. Armor and weapons sypyatsya tons of slain monsters, constant care of the chimera and personal forces does not get bored in between battles.
Do not forget about the small cost of the project. The campaign came out a few shorter than the original, but the developers have finally allowed to pass it again in the “veteran”. After reaching the required level can participate in certain scenarios with stronger monsters.
Present and co-op for four, and an arena for battles with other hunters monsters, but because of the disputed balance and generally boring abilities these regimes is not particularly interesting.
The game looks great again, but half of scenery migrated from the first part. Only at the end the authors begin to amaze nice paintings. This is the situation with the enemy. Many we have seen, and the most interesting developers hid the end of travel.
It claims to be no music can not. Beautiful and expressive. Resembles the soundtrack to Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes.”
The second part of the adventures of the famous hunter of monsters overgrown entertaining innovations. There are new classes and an additional level of complexity, now we command the army and nurture chimera. History does not possess originality, but pleases the number of meetings with famous characters from movies and party games. However, the battle is more reminiscent of a viscous Cutting through through thick jungle. For those who quantity more important than quality.
- Command of the army rebels
- En chimera
- Lots of new abilities
- Older sets and types of enemies in the first half of adventure
- New types of enemies, producing even more enemies
- Lack of memorable bosses
- Viscous process of destruction of enemy hordes
