There are no vampires in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, well one, but he seems to keep his fangs away from you, and no crossbow stakes through the heart either. This is not the same man of Stoker's legend but instead his son. There is however a slew of monsters, bathed in strange mechanical augmentations, baying for blood. Returning to his homeland of Borgovia the young Van Helsing, along with his pet ghost Katarina, discover that the monsters of the city (supposedly pacified by his father) have erupted once more into violence. Van Helsing must battle his way through wave after vicious wave of these mysteriously machine-altered monsters to discover the cause of the war and, as is staple for such heroes, end it. This vibrant steampunk meets monster fantasy background sets the scene for the intense, if rather generic, action RPG gaming that follows.
