Go "Auuuurgggh!" Yourself 0

I'm writing this review right now, ladies and gentlemen, out of panic. Y'see, Serious Sam 3: BFE has been out for a relative while now, and it is quite possibly the best first-person shooter of 2011. No, actually, strike that "quite possibly". It is the best FPS of the year. I know so. It's a fact. ...but, you see, despite having been released some time ago, and despite having a plethora of mostly positive reviews written about it, I'm utterly convinced that I'm the only sane person left on the ...

An imbalanced but often fun time 0

Serious Sam 3 is another entry in a series that is well known for sticking to the classic FPS shooter design established by titles like Doom and Quake of just you verses a never ending horde of enemies. It definitely holds up in this regard, and while the first few levels may have you thinking otherwise it isn’t long until the game begins throwing absurd amounts of things to kill and at times can get pretty overwhelming. By the final level you will find yourself running away and scrambling for h...

Serious Sam 3 features these main concepts for a majority of the game but tries to combine them with shadows, flashlights, and smaller weapons.

Seriously Fun 0

Serious Sam 3 BFE ups the visual quality of the classic shooting franchise, which has once again made its way to Xbox Live Arcade after releasing on PC last year. Now running on the Serious 3.5 engine, this game features improved animations and a visual style that makes the game more modern while retaining the classic shooting gameplay that the franchise is known for. The game on XBLA has also launched with the Jewel of the Nile DLC, which features three new campaigns, as well as competitive mul...
