    The gameplay is Diablo III-esque but I like the graphics, for a game like this they're amazingly good. Seems like a lot of fun and Van Helsing is a character I'm familiar with, too bad it's only available on Xbox One.

    The entire franchise has been out on steam for quite a while.

    I've only played the first game and it's a pretty solid Diablo clone with a competent storyline. I tried out the 2nd game a bit but didn't enjoy it as much as the first one. I haven't touched the third game yet, but I've heard mixed things about it. On steam there's a combined version with all three games put together in one game that seems like a good deal if you want to get into them.

    Really? Didn't know that, then I'm off to trying it out since it seems pretty good. Do you reckon it's a good idea to buy the bundle with all three of them if I'd never touched the games in this franchise?

    Yeah, the bundle/final cut version is probably the best way to start the franchise. I actually just bought it yesterday, and I'm pretty excited to start it soon. I hope you enjoy it!

    The graphics look good and although I'm not particularly fond of this type of setting and lore I will probably still be able to get into it once I start playing. At the very least I'm hoping there is a way to earn and change character skins.
