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.

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

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