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.
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!

Graphics are great but I think the first two Serious Sam (FE and SE) had better and more enjoyable gameplay, bigger rooms, more adventure-like with traps and I don't see that in Serious Sam 3. If any of your friends own the game you can play co-op with them which is really fun, just skip the first level if you can. There are many maps you can get stuck, the first map being the most confusing of them all. Just at the end of the game it barely gets on the level of a good Serious Sam with the crazy enemy spawning and items all over the place. The best level for me was the underground one where you need to follow the exit arrows, mostly because it was the least confusing. Also the survival mode is perfect!
When you play games like these you expect them to bring something with them to help you go through its journey. Serious Sam has something that helped it a lot , and that is the humor that Sam has , whenever he gets in conversation with other people or with himself , he always finds a way to make you laugh ,it's something that keeps you going to see or hear what serious "funny" Sam has to say , I talked a lot about this thing , didn't I ?..,anyways apart from that the gameplay itself is very enjoyable , okay sometimes it gets repetitive but , in my opinion gamers needs game like these from time to time , maybe because it's sort of "dying" genre , but games should be more open and have different ideas , and not to be strict in same and well known ideas , first person shooter games aren't always Call of Duty and Battlefield type and I am not starting a war by that, both of the mentioned games are great , but what I am talking about is variety .. Even the experience would be more interesting, exciting and less predictable. Overall Serious Sam is a great game and experience, don't let some graphical glitches keeps you from this game.
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.
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.
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.
