By

Croteam and Devolver Digital is bringing gamers a prequel to Serious Sam: The First Encounter with Serious Sam 3: BFE. Sam Stone has embraced his fans for years by being an over the top hero destroy massive amounts of enemies in Rambo format and with a potty mouth. If you don’t know what that means , it simply means dirty. All of this is available for you on Xbox Live Marketplace or Steam.

Serious Sam 3: BFE, which means Before First Encounter, or any dirty phrases that fans can think of and keep close to their hearts places Sam in the middle of an alien invasion. This event takes place during Mental’s, Serious Sam’s evil ally, legions of beast takeover for civilization in 22nd century Egypt. Its up to Serious Sam Stone to save humanity. Yes, the battle for humanity never ends in gaming.

Here is a look at the features but bear in mind you have to by the expansion DLC  Jewel Of  The Nile if you wish to play multiplayer. I will have a review on that in the future as well.

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 and them. All of them.

Mental’s Fearsome Legions – 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.

 Pure Multiplayer Mayhem – Play through the full campaign mode with up to 16 players or drop the gauntlet and let the heavy ordinance fly in versus modes like Deathmatch and Beast Hunt. This is the next level of Serious Sam multiplayer and all hell is about to break loose.

Serious Sam 3: BFE does have some great features even the ability to change the game’s graphical style. It doesn’t really change the fact that some of the game graphical textures aren’t that well. There is also moment’s when the game skips a step and takes awhile to load up new parts of the campaign.

The game is a blast for just shooting threw hordes of  alien enemies. There are tons of guns though most of them aren’t available until the later stages of the games campaign mode.

The co-op online is where this game stands out the most. Play Survival or Campaign with friends or via the matchmaking sytem for tons of alien blasting gameplay. If you want to do it in style you can change your character looks as well for Co-op.

Short And Simple..
Fun Factor – 6
Sound Quality – 8
Gameplay – 6
Graphics – 6
Online – 9
Replay Value – 9

Overall : 7.3/10

Definitely “PLAY IT” If you a Serious Sam Fan , You Gotta Experience This!

There’s some things in it that aren’t implemented so well but overall it’s worth a shot for Serious Sam fans, Co-op gamers, and shooter fans looking for a challenge.
