From the preview:
"It's kind of odd the reference to hunting though. I didn't see any gameplay mechanics or powers that allowed Van Helsing to actually hunt or track anything down. But then he hardly has to hunt when mobs of creatures bound straight toward him.
At least from my limited exposure, the game appears to be hitting the right notes when it comes to this kind of hack 'n' slash role-playing. Not only that, it managed to tickle that spot on my brain that Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance did more than a decade ago. For that reason alone I'm looking forward to playing the entirety of the game."
