Game description

Serious Sam 3: BFE is a first-person action shooter, a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom.

Serving as a prequel to the original indie and Game of the Year sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3 takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries.

Key Features:

  • Frantic Arcade-Style Action – Hold down the trigger and lay waste to a never-ending onslaught of attackers or face being overrun by Mental’s savage beasts. No cover systems, no camping – it’s just you against them. All of them!

  • Fearsome Enemy Creatures – A new battalion of unforgettable minions including the rumbling Scrapjack and towering Khnum join the legendary Headless Kamikaze, Gnaar and Sirian Werebull to create the fiercest opposition you’ve ever had the pleasure of mowing down!

  • Spectacular Environments – Battle across the expansive battlefields of near-future Egypt bursting at the seams with total chaos. The shattered cities of tomorrow lined with the crumbling temples of an ancient world become your destructible playground!

  • Destructive Arsenal – Unleash Serious Sam’s arsenal of weapons including a scoped assault rifle, the double-barreled shotgun, the explosive automatic shotgun, the punishing minigun, and the almighty barrage of flaming cannonballs! Carry all of Sam’s weapons at once and switch between each gun on the fly for maximum firepower!

  • Brutal Melee Attacks – When the going get’s tough, the tough take matters into their own hands! Rip out the eye of a closing Gnaar, twist off the face of the hideous Scrapjack or snap the neck of an Arachnoid Hatchling for an instant kill!

  • Co-Op Multiplayer – Go to war against Mental’s horde with up to 16 players online and annihilate everything that moves across 12 single-player levels of mayhem in Standard Co-Op, Classic Co-Op, Coin-Op Co-Op, Beast Hunt and Team Beast Hunt mode.

Good game but not for everyone

Classic carnage. Nothing more, nothing less. Graphics aren't the greatest but the guns and the enemies are worth fragging. The developers did a good job blending the retro fps feel with some modern mechanics. However, it's certainly not for everyone. The game gets repetitive from time to time and if you don't have a friend to play with, then you're gonna have to deal with it. Overall, if you're unsure whether you'll like it or not, I say give it a try.

Old-School Fun

If you're a fan of retro games like Doom, Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein, Quake, etc., then you will find that Serious Sam is cut from the same cloth. The environments can get dull and the many waves of enemies can seem repetitive at times, but it is capable of providing a strong challenge for those seeking it. It's also a great game to play with friends in cooperative play, and the online multiplayer still appears to be somewhat active, so there's a competitive element as well. All in all, if you can look past the previously mentioned issues, then you'll find a game that's worth playing until the end.

Sam is seriously back

Serious Sam 3 BFE could have been a let down with its recent installment, but it turned out that Croteam were hard workers and surpassed themselves on their already high quality games. Sam is back again, with all his glory and badassery jokes. It runs really smoothly and even supports Linux out of the box. The whole game was what we loved, a game where you'd shoot everything that moves one wave after another in a world mixed with aliens and egyptian mythology. Some may not like that gameplay approach, but it is a sub-genre of first person shooter suiting really well for a co-op approach after a nice BBQ with your buddies.

Fun FPS Shooter to play with friends

The graphics of this game are still good and if you like the humor of the Duke Nukem games then you're going to like this game because the comedy is just as funny. The gore and blood make this game very over the top and fun when you're killing hundreds of alien creatures chasing you down and there are a decent amount of weapons to kill them with such as a sledgehammer, your bare hands, desert eagle, rocket launcher and machine guns. The level design isn't that great though, and doesn't offer much variety and the action can get repetitive when you're killing the same aliens over and over again. The boss battles are great and unique I think and the campaign is long enough to keep you entertained. The best part about this game is that you can play the campaign online co-op with up to 16 friends, which I tried and worked out great with no problems and just massive mayhem and destruction all over. So if you love the over the top gory FPS shooters from the 90's like Doom, Quake or Duke Nukem, then you will like this game.

Better with a friend

I have never played the previous games and never will. I managed to get this in a really good humble bundle with a friend and we eventually got around to playing it when we got bored with all the other games. This might have been our last choice, but was definitely one of the best games in the bunch. If you run on a hard setting it is very challenging and fast paced. This is basically a run and gun comedy game though, so it takes a specific mood to play. I liked playing it alone too, but no where near as enjoyable as with a friend. Alone on a hard setting can make the game take forever so a friend helps move things along. If you have to play alone, it is more fun on an easier setting. Going slow in this type of game just ruins everything. There are some very hard to find secrets in this game, which makes it even more interesting. Recently a secret area was found (four years after the game release) which can show you just how hard some of the secrets are to find. Some are very easy as well, so don't worry about never finding them or anything. I have two favorite moments in this game: One was when I whacked my friend with a sledge hammer and got a steam achievement for it. The other is when I killed a screaming monster and Sam mimics the monster "AAAAAAAAAAAAAH shut up" because what happened next was pretty entertaining. You will know what I mean when it happens. I recommend this game, but again, try to get it with a friend because it is much more entertaining. Especially when you whack them in the face and get an achievement for it!
