One of, if not my favorite game of all time.
Serious Sam TFE displays what an arena shooter can pull off.
The storyline? It sets the mood, that's about it, and that's all it really needs to do.
You are sent into the past to kill off hundreds upon hundreds to even thousands of enemies from destroying the future. Simple enough?
Serious Sam introduces literally the most memorable foes in any video game I've ever encountered. I remember each name, and all the stats because the game throws them in your face in a way that actually satisfies. Two shots per beheaded soldier, a quick shotgun blast to male Gnaars, double shotgun for those damn Kleers, loaded cannon to the major Biomechs! The best part is that these enemies rarely appear in troops, but in groups! You'll have a Biomech on one side, an Arachnoid on the other, an Aludran Reptilioid on the roof... how will you choose to approach this? It's all up to you and your powerful arsenal!
Something also notable about Serious Sam is the stunning detail. Each enemy has a spot-on texture to make it feel like a true foe, and writings, paintings on the wall give for a total immersion into the mysterious landscape of Egypt. And how damn satisfying that is.
Running through factual lands to kill fictional beasts has never, EVER been so pleasing. With a unique arsenal and engaging gameplay, Serious Sam gives you an un-parallelled journey to the beautiful land of Egypt with true to history level design.
I could go on and on, but I can't do this all day. Basically, I find Serious Sam to exceed in almost everything it does, and what it does, just never fails to amaze me in all the probable 1000+ hours I've probably played it in my lifetime.
A closely followed community also backs up this game, giving you awesome access to mods, weapon models, gameplay tweaks, sound edits, and much more to make Serious Sam the game YOU choose it to be.
It's absolutely ♥♥♥♥ing stunning. 10/10
