Serious Sam 3 is an old school action-packed shooter game. With a arsenal of weapons at your disposable, fending off massive hordes of enemies provide an intense shooting experience. If you have played any other Serious Sam game before, you know what this game is about.
Serious Sam 3 is set in a present time earth, which has been invaded by monstrous alien forces. The setting of this game is set in modern day Egypt. Although this game does not have the best story, it makes up for it with action-packed gameplay. The gameplay is both challenging and very enjoyable.
If you have every played a Serious Sam game before, you know that you have to kill waves of enemies as fast as possible. Although the gameplay is more realistic than its predecessors, it still has its moments of unrealism. For example, you kill your first enemy by ripping it's eyes out.
Although other similar shooter games are based on a shoot and cover system, in Serious Sam you just run and gun your enemies. But there are moments where you do need to cover, but only temporarily. But the thing about Serious Sam games is that when you stay to long behind cover, you are not actually helping yourself since you have massive waves of enemies coming at you - time is of the essence.
The arsenal of weapons that you have at your fingertips is quite enjoyable. These weapons range from a melee sledgehammer to a pistol. Later in the game, you lay your hands on rocket launchers and other interesting weapons. Although it should be noted that this game is very graphic at times, as it does not try to hide the gore from the player.
At times, it feels like there are not a huge variety of enemies. If you have ever played any other Serious Sam game, you are probably familiar with some of the enemies you encounter in this game. But there are new types of enemies which make for quite an enjoyable experience.
This game also has an enjoyable multiplayer, with a 16 play co-op of the single player campaign. Modes like these provide for an intense shooting experience online.
Overall, Serious Sam3 is an enjoyable game. I would have to say that this game is probably one of the more enjoyable FPS games I have played recently. Serious Sam 3 does a good job of keeping the elements of its predecessors, but also introduces a few new features that seem new and refreshing.
