Prepare for The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing III with the complete franchise pack - only £10.19 on Steam

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing III is out this Friday and we can't wait. As explained in our detailed preview, it's shaping up to conclude this satisfying and rambunctious action-RPG series with a bang.

If you haven't played the first two, you're in luck, seeing as you can now buy both previous games and all of the DLC for just £10.19 all-in!

You'll even get a discount on The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing III when it launches! Note that the franchise pack doesn't include Part 3, though.

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing 1 & 2 on sale at Gamersgate this weekend

GamersGate are throwing a 'Van Helsing weekend,' which allows you to grab their two excellent action RPGs at a serious saving. The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing was a fantastic start for the franchise, injecting humour and personality into the addictive Diablo formula, while its sequel pushed the boat out in practically every direction possible. For reference: our Van Helsing I review and Van Helsing II review.

The first game is available as a complete edition for £3.75, whereas the sequel will run you £6. You can import your character over and continue the adventure with more advanced skills, and I'd highly recommend doing so.

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing 2 Preview | Vamp, Vamp!

Platforms: PC

Developer: Neocore Games

I can't wait for Van Helsing's next adventure.

Neocore Games came out swinging with a fantastic idea: a massive loot-grinding RPG delivered in three episodes, each lasting 12-15 hours apiece with save file compatibility. We therefore get an enormous slab of gunslinging, swordswinging, swashbuckling and teh phattest of lewtz delivered on our terms, allowing us to test the waters for £11.99 apiece and buy the whole thing for the same price as Diablo III's expansion pack. The first episode was solid, versatile, challenging and off-kilter; a real rip-roaring adventure that didn't take itself too seriously yet was deadly serious about its gameplay.

Now the legendary monster hunter finds himself defending a city under siege by the villainous General Harker, who throws an army of steampunk horrors at the grim defenders. It's time to don the floppy hat, grab our ghostly companion and unleash our inner Van Helsing... with a little more strategy this time around.

Game of the Month | May 2013

It's been a fairly slow month for releases this May which isn't particularly surprising as we gear up for arguably the most important convention season in the past decade. There've been mixed receptions for the likes of Fuse and Soul Sacrifice, and high praise for dead certs (Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D) as well as surprise hits (Van Helsing), but we've still managed to pick out three tip-top gems that should certainly be on your radar now if they weren't already.

Runners-Up

Game of the Month | May 2013

GRID 2 - The review is well underway after receiving the code slightly later than expected, but Codemasters have delivered a fine follow-up to their seven year-old smash hit. The Race Driver was never about simulation driving, and it's nice to see a serious arcade racer back behind the wheel. The content-stuffed, narrative-driven singleplayer mode puts to bed the myth that plotlines don't have any place in racing games, and its perfectly complimented by a plethora of multiplayer race types. It's just a shae about that lack of cockpit mode for full immersion.

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing Receives Free Scenario Mode DLC

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing is rollickingly good fun - check out our 8/10 review for more details - but the lack of game-complete content raised a few eyebrows. However, Neocore have now released a free DLC pack that allows vampire hunters to take their high level characters into some new scenarios complete with unique loot and boss battles. Details below.

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing Review | Diabolical Delight

Platforms: PC (reviewed) | XBLA version TBA

Developer: Neocore Games

Suggesting that The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing shares similarities with Diablo would be like saying that La Tour Eiffel looks a bit familiar after a trip to Blackpool. It's a click-heavy isometric action RPG with an emphasis on combat and loot. Health and mana are represented by red and blue gauges. You'll click on enemies to attack them, hold shift to deal damage without moving, identify items and assign skill points... in the game, not Blackpool Tower. Forget that analogy now. There's nothing wrong with taking inspiration from a good place, but at first glance, the word 'clone' and other slightly less charitable phrases spring dangerously to mind.

Look a little deeper, however, and you'll discover a game that breaks the mold in a number of exciting ways. The studio behind the King Arthur series haven't just honed the loot grinding mechanics to an enjoyable tee, rather they've used it to support a rip-roaring, rollicking adventure with an upbeat tone, likeable characters and truly excellent combat. All for £11.99.

That low price point belies what promises to be a very divisive approach to game length and replayability, but in terms of fun/£, Neocore's ARPG effort is an absolute belter.
