According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence
Parents should know thaat this game follows the movie it's based on extremely well. It features tons of occult action, explosions, and naked, sexually ambiguous vampires. Most of the game's gore comes in tiny, clean pinpricks whenever the player shoots certain enemies with certain weapons. If a child can watch the movie Van Helsing, he or she can probably play this game.
Fans of the movie may want to check the game out, but I suggest renting it first.
Casual gamers can skip this one. Aside from the Van Helsing license, there's nothing really special about this game.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no trouble playing Van Helsing. Its cutscenes are all subtitled, and although the music changes whenever monsters are about, the monsters' life-bars are shown at the bottom of the screen.
