We've been busy lately, and it's going to get worse in the weeks/months to come. Today, we're going to tell you a bit about Devil's Third, a game which was first announced back in 2010 on Xbox 360 and PS3 but finally became a Wii U exclusive when Nintendo replaced THQ as a publisher. We were able to get the game early to review it, so as usual you'll find the full article on the French side. Our verdict and the videos are inside if the only French you can do with your tongue is kissing.
As a single player experience, Devil's Third is a disappointing game that you probably shouldn't play if all you want is to play on your own. Surprisingly enough, when it comes to multiplayer, Itagaki's new game actually manages to shine and can even become quite memorable in its own way. There is indeed a lot more pace and fun when playing online, but you'll still have to deal with the dated visuals. Thankfully, contrary to the solo mode, multiplayer is much smoother, which adds to the overall dynamism of the combat system. Devil's Third is quite an odd title in the end, it's a huge disappointment when it comes to the single player experience, but it is saved by its multiplayer mode. Against all odds, some might say.
On the plus side
+ Very dynamic multiplayer
+ Great character customization in multiplayer
+ Switching between close combat and gunfights
+ Dismembering people!
On the down side
- Dull single player experience
- Technically outdated
- Controls aren't always very precise
- Problematic respawn system
The biggest difference to me is how your character POV changes. I don't mind third person games it just changes engagements a lot when people can see around corners and over high cover etc. (1 Hour ago)
person multiplayer - I just prefer to see the character I am playing with. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: I very rarely play 1st person SP games. The only ones I played are FarCry 1/2/3, Doom 3, Halo 1/2/3/4/5. RE7 put me off because of 1st person but I will play it eventually. I dont play 1st (2 Hours ago)
Third person cameras can be a bit annoying in multiplayer shooters since it allows you to move the camera beyond your line of sight. (9 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Why do you only play third person multiplayer games? Do you only play third person SP games? (9 Hours ago)
@droezelke: What Scoobs said is what i meant. I really like how that looked. Of course gameplay remains to be seen. (13 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: I only saw the movie sequel. Which I can't remember much of. (13 Hours ago)
