    I haven't seen the movie this action game is based on, but you take the role of Van Helsing, a tough guy out to vanquish evil monsters. The story is vaguely interesting, and as you progress through the game, you'll encou... Read Full Review

    Van Helsing…let me start off by saying that I did not play this game for a very long time. I put maybe about 2 hours or so into it, so my impressions will come from that. If it changes drastically after that, please feel... Read Full Review

    Pretty exterior with no substance.

    Devil May Cry can be seen as a blessing and a curse to the modern action game afficionado. The original game itself was spectacular. And that's wonderful. It's success spawned a number of pretenders to the throne. I'm su... Read Full Review

    Van Helsing is a fun, simple, single-player adventure with a nice pace and good visuals.

    The Vivendi Universal picture Van Helsing seems to be a love it or hate it type of movie. I think the same could also be said for Van Helsing the console game. I recently purchased and began playing the XBOX version and ... Read Full Review

    I actually really enjoyed this game...

    I know you may think this game is bad because Gamespot gave it a bad score, but it is actually a pretty good game. If you can find the game (like I did) for $10, I would recommend buying it and checking it out. The gam... Read Full Review
