    The Devil’s Third is a hell of a lot of fun because it breaks every rule in the book. I would take that, technical warts an all, over the glistening and safe nonsense that we’re exposed to from almost every other shooter out there.

    The best thing we can say about its campaign is that it works as a tutorial. The multiplayer mode is the key of this title, but you need to understand how it really works to make the most of it.

    A complete disaster saved by a competent online multiplayer. Devil's Third is ugly, with bad control, and is boring... Itagaki must have been napping while developing this.

    Uninteresting combination of unpolished elements. The campaign quickly bores and multiplayer turns out to be only slightly less monotonous.

    If there's a game that fits perfectly as a kusoge (the term that Japanese gamers use for terrible games), Devil's Third is definitely one of a kind. Itagaki's experiment is a total failure in all of game's aspects: bad gameplay mechanics, terrible narrative and poor graphics make this title something to avoid.

    With just five hours on the counter, barely anything gets time to truly sink in. Add to this the technical issues and the inconsistencies of the presentation and you have a game that could have benefited from a bit more playtesting.

    It is quite clear that Devil's Third was never intended for the Wii U. It feels completely out of place. It's fitting that the only Wii U-specific feature Devil's Third uses is the GamePad's poor battery life, because it gives you an excuse to turn it off.

In ways it can be played are more variants than in last Ninja Gaiden. Slashing and finishing your enemies feels and sound very fun. Boss fights are strong and very intensive. Level design is simple so what, it's a standard for Japan arcade slasher. Characters are trashy but cool. Fire + Run + Jump + Slash + Finish. Changing this elements in order during gameplay and have unique fun. Cut scenes are nice. Putting 10 to support the metacritics score of the game. But the real score is 7.5 and not a point lower.

Multiplayer is a blast when you are playing with a ton of people. Absolutely loved building forts to make traps for invading enemies. Single player is like an 80's action movie and pretty fun. I can't believe how few people learned to extend their Enbaku mode (super mode) by damaging enemies. You can make it last minutes instead of the usual 20 seconds. Damn good fun. Expand

    El titulo es muy divertido ademas de tener diversos modods online que lo hacen muy enviciante. Es una pena que la critica haya sigo tan duraEl titulo es muy divertido ademas de tener diversos modods online que lo hacen muy enviciante. Es una pena que la critica haya sigo tan dura con el. El juego es mejor que titulos como army of two e innova en mezclar cosas de fps, third person shotter y hack and slash

    El juego en campaña se nota una gran mejora a partir de la cuarto misión tanto grafica como de diseño de niveles.
