From the Manufacturer
From the creative mind of legendary designer Tomonobu Itagaki comes Devil's Third, an over-the-top, third-person action shooter that combines modern military weaponry with ninja-style swordplay and melee combat. It has a unique vision for a deep and challenging online mode that blends clan-based action, resource management and strategy.
About the Game
At the heart of the single-player campaign is Ivan, a former mercenary let loose from his incarceration to right the wrongs of his past and take down a shadowy terrorist group he once belonged to. With the world’s satellites and electrical weaponry having been wiped out, and warfare once again reduced to close combat between soldiers, Ivan must use a colourful array of weaponry to shoot and attack his way through any foe standing in the way of his attempt at redemption. With fast-paced combat and finishing moves galore, a day in the life of Ivan is anything but ordinary…
The game’s online multiplayer mode, meanwhile, offers up a grim future whereby the terrorists have won, and chaos reigns supreme. As an ordinary citizen, you can join a clan and help reclaim the United States by forming allegiances with other factions, or go all-out as a mercenary and endlessly assault other player’s bases, opting for anarchy over clan diplomacy! But at the heart of the online play is the ability to customise your base alongside other members of your clan, with successful battling resulting in rewards that can be used to improve your defences. With constant assaults from other clans, you’ll have to be on your toes to defend your territory.

The story is enjoyable tongue in cheek B movie stuff. Ivan, locked in Guantanamo Bay for 1000 years for the crime of being too awesome, has his half naked drum solo interrupted by an urgent message. America needs him to beat his half naked former friends up, and if he manages it he'll get another guitar, something he really wants as he seems to use the things as wallpaper for his jail cell. He agrees to help and punches his way out of Guantanamo and around the world defeating his oddly named and rarely clothed adversaries, each less clothed than the last. The story's funny when it shows up but it fades away after a while and there isn't enough of it. One highlight includes a lecture on how children in the 3rd world suffer under western exploitation from one boss that comes right after fighting a boss that used chemical weapons to kill a bunch of children.
The movement controls in this game are fantastic, melee and shooting are mixed together fluidly and can be chained into satisfying combos. There is a dodge system that is easy to use and useful both for obviously dodging melee but also for positioning. It is possible to powerslide toward an a opponent spraying bullets at his knees only to leap into the air and chop his head off at close range and it all has an intoxicating feeling of velocity and impact. It's most fun to run around at full pelt shooting and slashing enemies, jumping across gaps and zig-zagging between cover without ever having to stop for any reason.Read more ›
Game is really good in both single player and the excellent online MP, when there's enough people online I really feel the MP in Devil's Third is as good as anything the Wii U has to offer in terms of an online experience.
I really do enjoy the boss fights in the single player, all of them are quite challenging but really fun to beat, also the main character Ivan and all of the main characters/bosses in the game look fantastic and IMO is the one area where the game looks it's best.
The reason I'm giving the game 4 stars is that I feel that some of the textures in the game are what makes it look a bit dated at times, the actual levels throughout the single player are nicely done and varied, but, it's the old looking textures that let the game down in the looks department, also there's the odd frame rate issue here and there, nothing major though.
But, if Valhalla/Nintendo released a patch (or two) to improve these things then I'd honestly give this game a 5 out of 5, it's just the lack of overall polish that holds it back a little.
So overall if your looking for a good mature action game then Devil's Third is one of the best games you can get for your Wii U.
Give it a chance, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
The melee combat was the highlight for me and was very fun to use. You have fast melee attacks to use or strong melee attacks which you can combine with dash jumps or slides if you wish. I used a lot of melee attacks on heavy armor enemies and enemies with shields which definitely works better than shooting.
The gun control movement took me a little while to get used to, but once I got the hang of it I liked it. I found myself using the sniper quite a bit in the later half of the game. You can also combine shooting with slides like the sword. One thing I really like is shooting while sliding then jumping out of the slide and switching to a strong sword attack.
I noticed a lot of reviewers laughed about the prison boss being so easy, but once you reach the third boss the difficulty does increase a lot and the later bosses are quite a challenge. I was dying in 2 normal attack hits from later bosses due to not blocking and dodging efficiently. The overall controls are perfectly fine which was another complaint I had seen in reviews, but I had no problem with them.
Edit: I have played 22 hours of online mode now and it's very addictive and active. There is more full teams now compared to day one. I have only played Team Death Match and Carnival mode so far.
Carnival is my current favourite mode and you have to collect fruit from stalls all over the map and throw the fruit in the blender for points.Read more ›
