Van Helsing the game:any evaluations?

I was wondering about this game as the premise and movie look like it could make for some good gameplay. The problem is I saw some of the preview material at the official site and well, it doesn't really look that great in terms of graphics. It looks like they took the route of putting a bunch of shapes together without fine tuning the edges like they did with EA's LOTR games and the most recent Bond game.

I have no idea as to which format was being used, but I hope the final product is better than what I have seen.

typical rule of thumb is - the more a developer has to pay for a movie license, the less money they have to spend making the game cool and fun. Plus, this looks like it was a total rush job. I can't imagine this being very good, but I couldn't say for sure.

From what ive played, I really like the game. Enough to warrant the purchase of it new (the day it comes out) rather then used.

I am hoping the GBA version is a Castlevania style engine.

I wonder why they want to release it on the day of the movie than before?
