Review: Serious Sam 3: BFE on XBLA boasts crazy enemies and even crazier FPS action

GameZone
22 October 2012
  • Excerpt: These days we see a lot of developers creating first-person shooters in an attempt to evolve and revolutionize the genre. Serious Sam 3: BFE from developer Croteam does no such thing, instead  relying on old school mechanics, all the while refining the formula and design to suit today’s standards.

Serious Sam 3: BFE review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The big joke about Serious Sam is that he’s not serious at all. Well, he’s serious about kicking ass, because he (meaning you) can literally take on a thousand enemies single-handed and come out with only a few scratches. He’s not serious because he’s been fighting the forces of an alien overlord named Mental (yep) and he’s been doing it while wearing cheesy orange sunglasses and making ridiculous quips, some of which are actually funny (in one of our favorites, after...
  • Pros: Properly old-school shooterizing, Some amazing enemy swarms, A seriously epic final boss
  • Cons: Brown, tan, brown... brown, Where are the truly crazy enemies?, Needs tighter pacing

  • Summary: Like I have mentioned before, BFE is the Painkiller (see what I did there?) that people like myself need from the unrelenting mass of games where I feel like I am stuck in a corridor. Right now we have shooters like Modern Warfare 3 being called “un-games” by our friends at Rock Paper Shotgun because of how on-rails it has become. Sometimes I just want to sit back and shoot things like a madman, and BFE delivers on all fronts.

Serious Sam 3: BFE Review

GameSpot
13 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Sam Stone has made his name in video games by taking on relentless hordes of aggressive enemies and laying them all low with big guns and snarky quips. In Serious Sam 3: BFE, the legions of enemies and deadly arsenal return, but the novelty of Sam's run-and-gun-and-run-some-more style is long gone. This time around, the pace has slowed down and Sam's macho shtick has grown wearisome, draining much of the energy that once fueled this manic shooter series.
  • Pros: Impactful arsenal, Decimating hordes of foes can be satisfying, Ample secrets hidden throughout levels
  • Cons: Action feels more like cleanup than combat, Campaign starts off slowly, Sam's macho quips are rarely amusing

  • Conclusion: A hugely fun, mega-frenetic co-op shooter that embodies the soul, and depth, of ’90s twitch shooters.

4 January 2012
  • Excerpt: One of gaming's biggest trends of 2011 has been the throwback first person shooter. Games like Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem Forever aimed to show us what shooters were like before multi-million dollar budgets, high-def, realism and regenerating health. While the unapologetic nod to bullets gone by is great for a bit, they merely serve to remind us of just how much we miss the amenities of the new breed.
