Also, I experienced some minor performance issues, even running on a GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Tons of particle effects on-screen would make the action lag and then jump ahead occasionally, and this game doesn't look nearly good enough where that should occur, even on Ultra.
It's more than a bit silly and mindless but, well, the whole aRPG genre is a bit silly and mindless. Victor Vran strips out some of the complexity of its peers, but makes up for it with a dynamic combat system and incredibly modular character customization. And the most awful hats. And stale jokes that are so stale they're almost funny again. Almost.
I ended up enjoying this one more than I expected. It's not perfect by any means, nor would I say it's as good as genre leaders Diablo, Path of Exile, and Torchlight. But it still kept me up until 4 A.M. one night, so I'm calling this a win.
