/* GLEAM IO - ADDED BY MUHAMMAD */ Victor Vran: Overkill Edition | Yay or Nay? | Gemcode Gaming

Victor Vran is an action-RPG that was released by Haemimont Games in 2015; the same developers that brought us Tropico, the legendary construction and management simulator.

Since its release, Victor Vran has been tested and reviewed by many gaming critics, receiving a score of 75% from Metacritic and 82% on PC Gamer along with various other ratings by various other critics.

Now, after so many years, the Victor Vran ‘Overkill Edition’ makes its way to the next generation of gaming platforms, which features two new DLC that have been added into the base game; meaning gamers who have played this title before will have something to look forward to.

The first of these DLC is called ‘Ethereal’ and features dungeons that the player can explore which change on a daily basis. This means each day features a new dungeon players can explore; which means more LOOT.

The second DLC is called Motorhead. Yes, that is a British rock band.

Featuring extra added game audio by the band Motorhead and a whole line of new quests to complete – which are activated by speaking to Lemmy Kilmister at the bar – ‘Motorhead: Through the Ages’ promises a whole new engaging gaming adventure, with a lot of metal on the side.

These DLC can also be purchased separately on the PC platform, so PC gamers get a taste of the action too.

Regardless of all the new add-ons, the game itself hasn’t changed much since it was first released.

The DLC themselves are also quite similar to the original base game; gameplay and the general feel of the game are quite similar.

Both contain the same strengths and weaknesses; neither contain a story that stays with you for years, they’re both typical hack and slash stories that you’d properly forget after drinks.

Although the game features demons and a bad mutha’ main character – the key elements of one of the best ARPGs, Devil May Cry – it lacks engagement. After a while, you’re not lost in the game anymore and it becomes more of a routine to play than an adventure.

Oh, and did we forget to mention….. Doug Cockle voices the main character in this game. (Yes… THE guy who voices Geralt in The Witcher.)

What really makes this game outstanding, however, is its combat.

Like RPG title Diablo, players are faced against legions of demons which can be slain with a similar arsenal of weapons that are scattered throughout the world.

Instead of skill trees and other such means, character progression is achieved by mastering the use of the various weapons found in the game; with the addition of Guitar based weapons in the Motorhead edition…. Frickin’ cool, right?

Before anyone sets their expectations sky high I think it’s safe to say the Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is not the best RPG out there, by any means.

However, it’s still pretty high up there. This game is pretty fun and enjoyable once you start playing it.

The visuals aren’t to joke about either; Haemimont has built this game from scratch and it supports 60fps – yes, they found a way to get it onto consoles – so no matter how many enemies there are on your screen, you can slay them all while admiring them crystal clear visuals.

Although it’s not the GOAT RPG, it’s still worth picking up if you have the dough and time. In an era of FPS and sports games, an RPG worth playing is difficult to find, especially on consoles.

Even if you’ve already played the game, the new DLC do offer a new line of quests to explore and although it won’t be the best line of quests you’ve ever played, you will still find enjoyment investing countless hours into it.

Gemcode gives this game a solid 7/10. Well deserving and fun to play, this game does well with its flashy visuals and easy to use controls. Though, the gameplay might become repetitive in the long run.
