Van Helsing, if that even is his real name (I have severe trust issues) is like Darkman: wonderful for 99 minutes before it melts into a hot, bubbling mess. While I can get behind any game that has Dracula walking on the ceiling, as well as Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein WHO I KILLED WITH A SHOTGUN, I don't understand why it had to spiral into fighting seemingly-endless hordes of goblins and skeletons. I'm not afraid of skeletons. I have one. If anything, the human body is like a skeleton plus, since I got all the meaty bits and clothes and stuff. I could body shame the hell out of a skeleton, because I GOT ONE. I'm more threatened by my own poor decision making skills than some bonehead who doesn't even have the appropriate vocal hardware to scream in pain, which I can only assume is the primary impulse of any skeleton.
The environmental art is great, but Huge Ackman (the main character) never sings in the game. What a pity.
