It’s been six years since Serious Sam fought the forces of Mental on a variety of verdant alien worlds, but rather than continue that tale Serious Sam 3: BFE will instead be a prequel to the original Serious Sam, which saw Mental’s horde of imaginatively designed enemies invade 22nd Century Egypt.
Using the 21st Century Serious Engine 3, Serious Sam 3’s graphics are at the cutting-edge of today’s standards, and to cater to all gamers there is a mind-boggling amount of options to help ensure the frantic action game runs smoothly on any PC put together in the last five years.
Gameplay-wise, Serious Sam 3: BFE gives gamers what they want – more of the same. That being ridiculous numbers of enemies on-screen at any given moment, ludicrous weapons, numerous well-hidden secrets per level, and plenty of amusing one-liners direct from Sam’s high-res lips. Adding to the insanity will be sixteen-player campaign co-op with appropriately increased numbers of enemies, in addition to sixteen-player competitive deathmatch and ‘Beast Match,’ a yet-to-be-detailed mode.
If you’re sick of cover-based shooters and realism Serious Sam 3: BFE is the perfect antidote, offering absurd action on an unprecedented scale with zero regard for the rules of reality.
