The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III

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 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.

Final chapter in an interesting isometric action RPG trilogy. Game not that bad like people say but some truly bizarre changes that can leave a negative impression. Can recommend it if you liked previous two games.
Pros:
- Cool locations design;
- Decent voice acting and soundtrack;
- Somewhat funny;
- Good enemy variety;
Cons:
- Unnecessary simplification of a skill trees;
- Bad optimisation;
- Really short campaign;
- Lack of polish;

DIABLO MEMORIES

Review from Steam

Van Helsing 3 is the weakest part of the Van Helsing trilogy.
Van Helsing 3 introduces all sorts of new environments and enemy types to the game compared to both of the predecessors. The level cap is back down to 30 again like the first game. There are mixups of classes and skills, there are some nice changes here with some of these with some classes gaining a bit more of a difference between them. For instance the protector can actively block with his shield, or the constructor fellow has a passive that gives him a badass weapons platform that is always with him. Overall the reduction down to level 30 makes things a little more limiting as far as skillbuilds than I'd like.
The map design of Van Helsing 3 from an artistic stand point is great. The quest design here is a lot weaker than the previous games, there's a LOT more of the "having to run for 2 minutes non-stop to turn in the quest" type situations which really really sucks. Most of the optional side-quests are like that. Fortunately most of the story-line quests aren't, so if you're rushing through you have that option although it comes at the cost of missing out on some skillpoints and attributes for your character.
To talk about the Trilogy itself and how it links together
Characters that start and finish the story of Van Helsing 1 at their final level maximum of 30 can be imported into Van Helsing 2. From here it can get a little messy as far as character persistence goes. The third game has large changes to the game balance and so characters from the second game cannot be imported over to the third. Additionally, to wrap up the series there is a "Final Cut" version, which combines all the games with the newer features of 3 along with its own unique changes. Characters from the original trilogy cannot be added to the Final Cut version. There are certainly pros/cons to buying the stand-alone trilogy games piece-meal instead of playing one seamless experience offered by the Final Cut. Features differ slightly, different balance etc. However, NeoCoreGames has an on-going offer for owners of the 3 stand-alone Van Helsing games. By visiting their website:
Overall if it's on a sale and you have already played through the first two parts by all means grab it when it's on a sale, but be prepared for the worst part IMO of the game series. The content here may well work a lot better in the Final-Cut version, which has a higher level cap and probably more fun toys to play with.

Amazing storytelling and arpg action

Review from Steam

This is one of those games that really makes me wish steam had a “neutral” rating rather than just a “good/bad” system as there are quite a few good points to this game but also some major problems.
Firstly the game is EXTREMELY SHORT! I'm a completist and even so I finished the game in about 12.5 hours completing all side quests in the process and unlocking nearly all of the hidden achievements.
The original game Van Helsing 1 has had some features bolted on to make Van Helsing 2 which did not, in my opinion, add to the game and rather detracted from it. Unfortunately these have mostly been retained in Van Helsing 3. They mostly require you to return to your lair every 10 minutes (or more frequently) to micro manage one thing or another. As anyone who has ever experienced a “micro manager” will know this is not a good thing!
The skills system has been simplified from that in the previous games. I know a lot of people hate this but I'm going to go out on a limb and say I actually prefer the new system.
Thankfully some things which needed to be fixed did get fixed. The difficulty issues that plagued Van Helsing 1 & 2 have been addressed. Previous games had a problem where by you just get surrounded by hordes and utterly annihilated, re-spawn and die almost instantly as the re-spawn is in the middle of the horde that just swamped you. Thankfully the monsters are less in number (but more in power) which avoids this swarm problem and the respawn points seem to be in more sensible positions.
Thankfully the Easter Eggs have also been toned down a bit. In Van Helsing 2 some of them are rather intrusive and “in your face” and actually distracted from the game for me. Thankfully they are not quite so blatant in this game.
A lot of reviews complain that this game is buggy and crashes to desktop. I'm playing on Windows 10 and didn't have any such issues but I did have a bit of trouble getting the thing to boot up the first time but it seemed okay after that. Be aware you get the loading screen and it then takes a LONG time for the game to actually start, a sort of “go and make yourself a cup of coffee” type long time and I drink filter coffee so don't assume the game has hung up, it really takes its time.
PLUS
1: General graphics: Quite nice but locked in a 4:3 screen format. Why, for a 2015 game, wide screen wasn't included I don't know.
2: Sound: Good, makes good use of a surround sound system.
3: Cheap: (NOTE: I got it with a hefty discount during a sale.)
4: Integrated with Steam: Comes with achievements and steam trading cards for those that like that sort of thing but if you are a keen achievement collector beware. There are a number of achievements linked to the multiplayer PvP game and that is all but dead making these achievements virtually impossible to obtain.
MINUS
1: Extremely Short: The whole game is only about 12.5 hours long and that is playing it as a completionist.
2: Plot: Uninspired.
3: Gameplay: Okay but uninspired. By the end it was getting very repetitive and this is a short game.
4: Lack of Tutorial / Instructions: There are a few on screen pointers at the start but most of the game is left completely unexplained. There is no instruction manual packaged with the game at all.
5: Poor character graphics: Apart from the weapons the character graphics have virtually no change depending on the items equipped which is disappointing.
