Code Vein launched late last month on the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One to generally positive reviews. Our review of the action-RPG awarded it an 8 out 10, notably praising its Blood Code system and character creator. However, some aspects, such as the online multiplayer component and Revenant memory sequences, held the experience back.
