Code Vein - Full PC Game Torrent Download
In this review we'll be taking a look at Bandai Namco's new in-house action RPG code vein if you've been following the site at all you know that this is a game we've had on our radar for several years now it was first announced back in 2017 and we've seen or played some iteration of it at just about every game show we've attended since then so what do we think of the game watch on to find out code Vayne sets the player in the middle of an ongoing war between humanity and a mysterious figure known as the Queen one that has resulted in the near destruction of the world you are a revenant once human you were brought back to life by a parasite placed into your body for the purpose of stopping her the catch is that you must consume blood regularly or you will become one of the lost the ever growing army of the Damned that is controlled by the Queen the concept of the story is entertaining and is explained in an anime fashion of sorts which is something I very much enjoy the anime aspects have been toned down particularly for a story with this much action which is something I expect was done to appeal to a broader range of audience if you don't enjoy or like anime you can still enjoy code veins art style and story without too much over-the-top theatrics the story is very very good.
In my opinion and there are twists and turns that really take things up a notch this might be one of the strongest aspects of Kobane the setting the game would not be my go-to choice and I'm generally not a fan of post-apocalyptic worlds accept you fall out it doesn't feel compelling in the slightest and I struggle to think of any area that was over a memorable except one and that was because it reminded me of another game which I'll compare code vein a lot to in this review the gameplay of code vein is going to be hit or miss with some of the soul's audience but if you like it you'll love it the overall amount of customization for your character is outstanding and it definitely gives the game a hardcore RPG feeling one.
I can't wait to explore more in depth in future build guides there is simply so many things you can do with your character you'll spend a lot of time tweaking and trying new setups blood codes which are essentially classes loosely can be changed on the fly allowing you to try out different styles of play instantly you'll lose hours and sleep just wondering how certain combinations of blood codes blood vales and weapons might work together to make UOP it's a bit insane really and that's without mentioning the character creator which gives you thousand of options it may take you an hour to just on this one aspect the heart of code veins gameplay has flashy anime s combat but the soul of the game is very much Dark Souls there are Perry's back stabs and all the things you'd expect from a Souls game just with their own flair and nuances you come to enjoy it in its own way and the flashy anime moves make you feel like an absolute badass you can play the game just like you would Dark Souls if you so choose opting not to use the things that separate code vein however you'd really be missing out skills and gifts add something that Dark Souls does not by giving you many more solutions to taking down enemies it almost feels more like a traditional RPG or JRPG in many ways and really defines the game the pacing of the game will feel very familiar for most Souls players teleports a large area explore and kill enemies find areas to rest fight more enemies eventually fight boss watch cutscene and repeat there are some variations of course but that's the basic gist of it and it works just fine they didn't need to fix what wasn't broken and they didn't code vain does feature some dungeons that are separate from the main game though and these are randomly generated to a degree it's my understanding that they are meant to be the game's end game content much like chalice dungeons were in blood-borne but I have now unlocked them all yet so I can't say for certain regardless they do add a means to fight bosses you've already faced before again which gives you practice if you desire as well as new loot this is something you don't generally expect from story driven games and it was a pleasant addition code vein features online cooperative multiplayer which is music to everyone's ears while many players prefer to play their first playthrough of souls like Games solo to really get that hardcore experience everyone loves to play online at some point jolly cooperation are what these sort of games are all about and frankly.
it's just fun to play with friends especially when they look so lovely players can use a password to sync up with their friends or they can play with random strangers on the internet who doesn't love that well I didn't get a chance to test this out with my review copy we did get a chance to play the beta recently and the connectivity worked just fine I expect very few issues here except perhaps on launch day since it's a tradition the world of code vain is not much to look at visually the level designs and maps look pretty bland and washed out and much of it feels very cookie cutter you begin to recognize pieces you've seen over and over and the world feels very static and lifeless an utter lack of motion in game world is something you don't expect from a large studio like Bandai Namco and is more akin to something in an indie game character animations on the other hand are nice to look at particularly if you're of the male persuasion they have a very anime feel to them and are well done fanservice aside they all have a unique appeal and they all seem original which is something you cannot say about too many RPGs these days oh no kitty no screen no ta-ra-ra monogatari camara see Rebecca kun da de viento sekai ha San Jose de Chile no logic cheery little schematic on a koala it's Cthulhu about a reunion the creatures trapped inside the miasma wander in a never-ending cycle of death and rebirth always searching for blood beats to sustain them revenants need to have blood the voice acting in the game is exceptional particularly if you're a fan of anime and put on Japanese voiceover the English is honestly not bad either though not as good and I played most of the game with it on this is because it's hard to read what your companion is saying when in combat or running around and it's just easier to listen I plan to play with Japanese voiceover the second go-round though sound effects and music were not particularly memorable except for the damn ringing in my ears from the missiles as you load into an area seriously this needs to be changed before we all suffer hearing loss or just break things all in all it was pretty average quality and I don't really have much bad or good to say about it final thoughts code vain is a game we've been following a long time and in the years that we've seen it I don't think I came away impressed a single time that is until now code vain not only shattered all my expectations but I'm genuinely addicted to it I can't stop playing and when I'm not playing I'm thinking about playing things like an excellent story interesting characters fun and rewarding combat deep customization and online multiplayer propel code vein into a lead company out of all the games I have played that you could categorize as souls like code vein is the only one that services that title and add something so unique that it feels more than some iteration of Dark Souls or blood-borne.
I'm utterly blown away code vein is not Dark Souls it lacks the polished combat and stellar world design of the legendary franchise however it makes up for these things with its brilliant character customization a deep narrative with twists and turns and skills and abilities that challenge the player to defeat enemies in a way they never would have thought of before on top of that the cooperative multiplayer should keep you playing well after you finish the game and add significant value to a game that was already worth the price tag if you're a Dark Souls fan code vein is a must-buy game.
