The third in Croteam’s wild and fast-paced shooter series, Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom.
It’s a prequel to the original sensation, taking place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries.
But Serious Sam 3: BFE comes at a time where that old classic “fun” FPS genre has suffered a big setback in the form of one Duke Nukem. With 14 years of development Duke Nukem Forever fell flat on it’s face. It’s crude jokes, poor gameplay mechanics, ageing graphics and blatant rip-off of the top games of yester-year have drawn some harsh reviews.
