Let's Play Van Helsing

Van Helsing is a 3D shoot 'em up based on the movie that came out the same year. In it, you play as a man with a nice fedora and a lot of guns. The game drew some comparisons to Devil May Cry and other action games released at the time, which was unfortunate. You don't do much hack 'n slashing, there aren't complex or flashy combos, and most of the game is spent holding down Square and strafing a whole lot. That being said, it's still fun as hell and feels much like a 3d upgrade of much older shooters. Oh, and there are also a lot of unlockables and secret areas and stuff.

About the Let's Play

We're going to be playing through the game once on Normal difficulty, collecting secrets along the way. All of the secrets? Goodness no. But hidden areas, health upgrades, and such? For sure. I also intend to use as few healing items as possible. It should be a relatively light-hearted information and critique focused play-through.


We're not a murderer, we're a monster hunter.
