Diehard GameFAN: Serious Sam 3: BFE Review

DHGF: Serious Sam 3: BFE is a welcome addition to the 360 library, harkening back to the “old days” of first person shooters in a way that’s intense and pulse pounding, and while the game isn’t a must have title, genre fans will find it worth the money. The plot’s not bad at all relative to the subject matter and does it’s job fine, and the game looks and sounds very nice overall. The game is very simple to pick up and play, as it bases its challenges not on complex mechanics, but on throwing lots of enemies against you to mow down, which it does well. There are multiple difficulty levels to plow through to keep you coming back, as well as online and offline cooperative play that allows a surprising amount of variety, so even once you’ve completed the game there’s plenty to keep you coming back. That said, the game does nothing its predecessors haven’t done, both in the series and in the genre, and in the rare cases that it tries to do something new it either adds nothing of note or makes the experience less enjoyable for it. The game is also hard to really deal with in large doses because it’s about killing massive amounts of enemies to the exclusion of all else, which can be tiring after a while, and there are some technical hiccups in this release that mar the experience a bit.
