Never was interested in this game, but now I'm considering getting it someday solely because of sheer curiousity.

Sorry, my phone puts links at the top. As you can see it is already sold out on amazon. There were 23 available at regular price two days ago. Now there is two available at 59.99. The rest are new from resellers.

 

I have not checked gamestop yet. But this second shipment did not last long. Digital will continue to sell and price reductions will come.

 

Goood review, I never had as much problems with single player as christopher myself, but think he gave itba fair review.

Been a member/lurker here a long time.  I am long time, very experienced gamer.  I bought this game to add to my WiiU collection as a novelty at first.  In fact, I didn't even open it for two weeks.  I finally opened it to play at a friend's place while having a game night.  We had a blast with it!  The gameplay is very "crisp".  Very responsive.  The boss fights were fun.  We only died a few times... To the point where we got antsy for the other to pass the controller.  The graphics?  I may be delusional... I'm not spoiled considering I am still impressed by PS2/GameCube/Xbox graphics, but I didn't find any fault barring the occasional slowdown in some areas... By no means did it detract from my enjoyment.  This game is just fun.  And I'm speaking only of single player campaign... I haven't tried online yet.  Very underrated in my personal opinion.  If you love hack n slash and gunplay this game marries both well.  It doesn't get boring.  I would give this game an 8/10 for it's enjoyment.  One of my favorite games this gen.  I know I'm in the minority.  I've played alot of games.  Lately I find myself hard pressed to finish most.  I can't stop with this one.  It's too fun.  Between this and Rocket League I'm turning my game systems on more than usual.  Regardless, to those who love pure gameplay and pure fun, I recommend it.  My friend and I haven't bonded on such a game in years... Since Resident Evil 4 in fact.  My friend is an avid Destiny and GTAV plater and he is texting me right now that he wants me to come by to finish Devil's Third because it's all he can think about.  Take that as you will, but this game is better than you think, and in many ways purer than what's out there.

Great review!

I see why so many people slammed it and I see why the devs/publisher allowed the MP to be released on PC rather than the whole game XD.

 

Edit: Assuming its still coming after all the slammed reviews and poor sales.

I think Nexon has done a beta or 2 for it so it should be still coming

While the combat and gameplay are 'crisp'. Though, I certianly see how this type of single player can appeal to some. very few some. But it still has its blaring issue.

Give the multiplayer a try when you get a chance, it really is great. Hit me up with a message if you ever need someone to play with for the multiplayer.

>Then right after that they stick 5 at the edge of the next corner that will blow you to pieces. Which reminds me, you will die, A LOT! There just such an imbalance of enemies.
All I can say: git gud. Enemy placement is brilliant on the most of the levels. It really give me Resident Evil 4 vibes from game-design point. End of 7th chapter is all about your skill.
Bosses telegraphs their "one shot kill" moves, I see no problems here.
Story is actually good, it hase some interesting plot twists. Setting is kinda unique for modern shooters. You can notice small things here and there if you read all the documents and carefully explore the areas.



@cycycychris: I really like that you check this game from every point of view, unlike most reviewers who seem to just bash it for it's graphics and don't even play it beyond the second level. Our oppinions might differ at various points in your review, but I'm not complaining, I appreciate your honest thoughts about it. My impressions about DT lean towards what SidOfBee said for the most part, but to each his own, I guess.

 

But I was wondering one thing. You mentioned one specific area towards the end of the game where you got frustrated over the bad enemy placing and not enough ammo. Could it happen to be this street? (that's my own miiverse screenshot)

I know I got really pissed here. This street had everything: invisible ninjas, flamethrowers, snipers, grenades, rocket launchers, shield protected machine gunners... you name it. And on top of that, because it ain't hard enough yet, you get some heavy a$$ chainsawers, axe wielders and four (!) heavy armored minigunners.
