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. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3 takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3 is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

It's a nice game but compared to the second and first part it's worse. BFE just can't give the same atmosphere / gameplay as the older Serious Sam games. It's more a Call of Duty than a Serious Sam ;)

Some weird decisions gameplay wise after the near perfect first and second encounter.
Mostly disappointing bosses, over use of hitscan enemies at some point, infinite ammo crates, serious lost its double ammo, overall difficulties seem to all have the same amount of enemies but the worst is definitely the "explosives only" enemies.

Still a great game, but a step down compared to the previous games.

From a technical stand-point the game is really gorgeous.
