Code Vein

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Code Vein takes some interesting chances for a Souls-like, but underwhelming combat and technical problems ruin the experience.

Game Info

Code Vein is set in the not too distant future where a disaster has brought the world to ruin and vampire-like beings battle for dominance.

3/5 stars

Code Vein’s lackluster combat is held up by great character customization, and its boring world is driven by a memorable story. It’s clunky and uneven, but fun.

7/10

Code Vein takes some interesting chances with Soulslike mechanics and finds mixed results, but there’s something worth sinking your teeth into here.

6/10

Code Vein adds its own spin to the Souls-like formula, but dull enemy encounters sap its combat of any life.
