nice little time-killer,
This review is from: Van Helsing (PS2) (Video Game)
Well, having played this game I can safely say: "Its devil may cry in a new outfit"
Theres the exact same "shopping" system of collecting and then trading orbs - or in this case glyphs - to upgrade your artillery, as well as gun in one hand blades in the other style fighting. The fighting system is the same - you enter an area and a range of bad guys pop up which, the more you kill and in fancy ways, does the same thing as DMC whereby you get a better rating at the end of the level. Its is THE same game but a lil bit slicker, the enemies are better, and as a whole its a better concept
Essentially - if you liked DMC you will LOVE this, but if you arent fond of the 3rd view style - avoid it. It plays quite tricky and infuriating at times, but all in all its a gorgeous game which can be replayed quite a few times as it has a number of cheats built in that you find through the game, as well as difficulty levels.
