Code Vein (PS4) Review

Code Vein is exactly the sort of game that won’t let silly things like “coherence” and “making sense” get in the way of its constant attempts to be awesome and over-the-top as often as possible. This is a world where the vampiric apocalypse hit hard enough to reduce the world to curiously arranged piles of rubble and craters.

Code Veins’ world is unlike dark souls game where most narrative and world-building details are left unstate, the whole narrative is out-and-proud in its anime-style. The act of getting new powers to use in combat involves a walk down a literal “memory lane”.

The combats in the game involves draining an enemy kicks off a cool cinematic takedown, where your awesome animated gas-mask is replaced by an another, even more awesome masks that you can use along with monster parts growing on your armor to attack enemy and fueling your magic.
Code Vein is a radical departure from its inspiration when it comes to tone and storytelling.

But Code Veins share a number of key figures, including director Yoshimua Hiroshi and producer Lizuka Keita. Code Veins plotted a similar basic strategy to DarkSouls in some Key ideas like core structural/mechanical elements making it more approachable and permissive.

In combat, Code Vein plays fast and soft, with weapons being much lighter and quicker to swing than their size(anime-style). Movement and dodge timing is closer to bloodborne end of spectrum, favoring movement and flexibility over precision timing, stamina management. All enemies even bosses swing wide and fast even their heaviness. But codeveins overcome darksouls in presence of AI-controlled enemies where the fight doesn’t last too long like dark souls making it too annoying and reckless.

Also in Code Veins, Player is provided with a convenient mini-map with more-closely spaced checkpoints, and powers that add extra damage mitigation, and even players teleport back to last checkpoint they used with all their gathered points in hand.    And over time players accumulate so many gifts like blood codes and bonuses.

More specifically, the game doesn’t bother to try very hard to implement a novel online component. Players can search for “distress signals” to join others’ games or open their own up, where these mostly form of finding an extra help for a tough boss fight or to further trivialize a stage.

Code Veins is a stylish action RPG that replicates the structure of darksouls while making it easier to walkthrough with other players to find an enjoyable and relaxed way of gaming experience
