About This Game

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.
  • Survival Singleplayer & Multiplayer – Try to survive alone (offline) against wave after wave of enemies with specially created levels in Survival mode or have your online friends join two teams, fighting both each other and enemies, in the relentless Team Survival mode!
  • Versus Multiplayer – Fight against each other or other teams in various multiplayer versus modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Last Man Standing, Last Team Standing, Instant Kill and My Burden, along with Team Beast Hunt and Team Survival!
  • Split Screen Modes – Play local (offline) split screen co-op and multiplayer versus modes with up to four players on one screen! It even includes the support for multiple keyboards and mice!

I found this game to be very good. I doesn't take itself seriously as most of other FPS, Sam seems to be an irreverent guy.
But gameplay is frantic! Instead of enemies placed in predetermined places, they appear in waves and are challenging. I played it on normal difficulty and had quite a challenge.
Definitely underrated, and ver enjoyable. Give it a try if you like FPS

Basically Serious Sam 3: BFE

I can't say it's and indie game since 2001 when The First Encounter came out. Croteam is indie game developer but i will assure you - they are not. Starting off with puns. For 2011 they were making me go LMFAO sometimes. Right now they only make me giggle a bit. Puns were the core of the first game. Now for the hated aspect: CoD effect. Call of Duty was THE ETHALON FPS at the time and Croteam went for innovations took from CoD and other 2010-11 FPSes like adding ADS(which is useless in anyway at brutal shooter), Sprinting and quick melee. Quick melee is still a thing i like, it's a bit like my wet deams of killing everyone. Other hated part - ANIMATIONS. If you ever played in COOP/Third Person you've seen those cheap Garry's Mod noob animations. They look funny, but for that franchise it's bad move, not focusing on ingame animations. Cutscenes have flaweless anims and lip-syncing. Current state of multiplayer - dying. Now about DLC(Jewel of the nile) - you can't install mods without DLC. Like half of great mods on Workshop need JOTN (mods like Classic Encounter or Serious Sam 64, DOOM3 Weapon Pack and etc.). Last bad move from Croteam: They went for newer players. Like seriously, to feel Normal difficulty like it was in 2001 you need to play in coop with 200 Dificulty modifier per player and have 3 or more. Basically - too easy on Normal-Serious difficulty. Now for good parts - Story. Yep, Serious Sam has a storyline. Even if it is complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. But in this game it's a satire on modern shooters. Finishing Moves - as i said, my wet dreams. Enemies - most classic enemies are back and some new arrived.

That's about it
7.3/10 as a Serious Sam Game
8.0/10 as a game in general

First couple levels are boring AF - like, to the point where you'd probably want a refund. Once you get past those levels (you'll know what I'm talking about), the game gets really, really fun - and extremely difficult! If you like crazy FPSs, you'll like this game.

You fight over 100000000+ demons thrown at your face in large scale terrains. The game does not give a rats @ss on how much ammo or health you got left. Cause it's totally your fault if you're down to 2 health and low on ammo. F**k your feelings.

IF you're looking for an oldschool run and gun FPS like the new Doom. Give this one a go.

I really hope I don't get too much hate for not recommending this game, but I just really don't like this game at all. Here comes the list... Bad graphics, bad gameplay, bad voice acting, bad story, bad everything. Don't bash me yet, I already understand that the game is supposed to be comical, but they could have done better. Look at the Borderlands franchise, they know how to be comical, but also keep an interesting story, great voice acting, amazing gameplay, awesome graphics, and a lot more. Serious Sam 3: BFE is an absolute train wreck! It's barely worth $5 to be completely honest...
I couldn't even play through the entire game because it's so cringeworthy! I'm sorry to disappoint all of you Serious Sam fans, but this game just doesn't do it for me. I definitely do not recommend this game at all. I found myself laughing through the beginning of the story because it's so terrible. Really wish they could take notes from Borderlands, and try to go up that route next time! In the end, do not buy Serious Sam 3: BFE. The game is a disappointment, for sure.

While Sam is the only survivor on Earth

Alien: It's all over, Sam. You can't win.

Sam: Over? Oh, it's not over until I teabag every last one of you alien motherf*ckers.

That's how awesome and legend game it is

This game is good in cases below:-
1) Single player story better than (The first encounter) and (The second encounter)
2) Good FPS's and dynamic lights
3) Survival (most thing still playing on it)

However, there are some dissapointments in that game:
1) Lots of bugs in Versus mode. (-1)
2) Fatal Bug in survival like (Werebull killing you in seconds with many of damages) -BUG- (-0.3)
3) Survival map "Under Pressure" has bugged wall, which is preventing enemies get you. -BUG- (-0.2)

Rate: 8.5/10

Serious Sam 3 BFE is the highest action filled game to date. There are moments you can share in cooperative mode that will have you talking and laughing for weeks. Intense moments in gameplay where you go, there is no way they can expect me to... oh I stand corrected, they are going to do this to me. It really is a SS game to the core. You against the world of an invasion. Good luck, bring ammo. Highly recommended.

Charging around blowing S*** up to the sound of heavy metal - what's not to like?!

Graphics are gorgeous too.

In fact simply writing this review has inspired me to go and play the campaign again!

Do you enjoy military shooters?

Do you enjoy having no health and standing in cover to heal up?

Do you enjoy running around, knifing people on the arm to kill them instantly?

Do you enjoy 360 no-scoping people with snipers?

If you answered yes to any of these, dump your head into the nearest urinal and go buy this game because IT'S NOTHING LIKE THAT
