We like the idea behind Code Vein, but we're yet to see any footage that really makes us excited to play it. Unfortunately, this latest boss fight gameplay does nothing for us either. When the project was first revealed, it was described as anime Dark Souls, and as much as we hate to compare anything to From Software's series these days, it's near impossible not to do that here. Going by this new video, this is Dark Souls with bland environments, combat that appears to lack punch, and a worse art style.
We're hoping that Code Vein proves our early impressions wrong and ends up being a great action role-playing release, but again, we're just not sold based on what we've seen so far.
Do you agree, or are you about to tell us how horribly wrong we are? Please don't spill any blood in the comments section below.
