It may not be the most visually appealing game for Wii U owners to rush out for, but with Tomonobu Itagaki's name attached, Devil's Third looked promising enough to keep an eye on. Fortunately for those in the U.K., you can pick up the game this Friday, however, for those of us in the U.S., we'll have to wait until December 11th. In the meantime, let's take a look at what critics are saying about the title.
Currently, if you were heavily anticipating the game, it looks like it isn't exactly the fast-paced fun we were hoping for and plenty of issues stand in the way of making the game a hit. Devil's Third currently sits at an average review score of 39 out of 100 on Metacritic based on 16 reviews:
Hobby Consolas, the reviewer behind the highest rating, a 79 out of 100, calls the game "outdated, but fun with a good online multiplayer component."
IGN Spain & 3DJuegos both scored the game a 60 out of 100 and once again praised the game's multiplayer as the best part of the package, but go on to critique the game's "ugly" graphics and bad controls.
Coming in with some harsher reviews are XGN, GameSpot, & GamesRadar+, all which rated the game a 30 out of 100, claiming some jokes deliver, but in its entirety, Devil's Third is a disappointment.
So far, Digital Spy disliked the game the most stating, "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." This comes on top of their 20 out of 100 review score.
