Summary: A few levels into Serious Sam 3: BFE, I admit that I wasn’t really feeling it yet. I’d acquired a decent arsenal and had splattered some modestly sized herds of enemies, but the old Serious Sam magic just hadn’t shown up yet.
Excerpt: Serious Sam 3: BFE is a heck of a game. For newcomers it’s a revelation, for old-timers, a reminder: this is how it used to be, back when men were men and shooters didn’t have cover or weapon limits or storylines that people pretended to care about.
Pros: Ridiculously intense action that just does not stop.
Cons: Bit of a slow start, and it can be overwhelming once things get rolling.
Conclusion: Overall, this game is a blast, plain and simple. It’s over-the-top violence combined with a classic feel, and is going to hit the sweet spot for those classic PC gamers out there. If you want to take on a horde of screaming headless kamikazes, then you’ve found the right game.
Excerpt: Hold down the trigger. Run backward. Repeat. ThatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s the Serious Sam 3: BFE strategy guide, straight from Croteam. Read it. Memorize it. Implement it. For those of you that havenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t played a Serious Sam game before...
Pros: + Guns. Lots of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“em, + Old school in the best ways, + Genuinely humorous
Cons: Where am I supposed to go?, Just a bit too long
Conclusion: Serious Sam 3 wirkt zwar ein wenig Erwachsener wie die Vorgänger behält aber in den Grundzügen den alten Stil bei und setzt ihn recht gut um. Für Fans der Serious Sam-Reihe ist das Spiel daher ein absoluter Pflichtkauf.
