From the Manufacturer

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.



  • Frantic Arcade-Style Action – Hold down the trigger and lay waste to a never-ending onslaught of attackers or face being overrun by Mental’s savage beasts. No cover systems, no camping – it’s just you against them. All of them.
  • Fearsome Enemy Creatures – A new battalion of unforgettable minions including the rumbling Scrapjack and towering Khnum join the legendary Headless Kamikaze, Gnaar and Sirian Werebull to create the fiercest opposition you’ve ever had the pleasure of mowing down.
  • Spectacular Environments– Battle across the expansive battlefields of near-future Egypt bursting at the seams with total chaos. The shattered cities of tomorrow lined with the crumbling temples of an ancient world become your destructible playground.
  • Destructive Arsenal – Unleash Serious Sam’s arsenal of weapons including a scoped assault rifle, the double-barreled shotgun, the explosive automatic shotgun, the punishing minigun, and the almighty barrage of flaming cannonballs! Carry all of Sam’s weapons at once and switch between each gun on the fly for maximum firepower.
  • Brutal Melee Attacks – When the going get’s tough, the tough take matters into their own hands! Rip out the eye of a closing Gnaar, twist off the face of the hideous Scrapjack or snap the neck of an Arachnoid Hatchling for an instant kill.
  • Co-Op Chaos – Go to war against Mental’s horde with up to 16 players online and annihilate everything that moves across 12 levels of mayhem. Try to survive wave after wave of enemies in the relentless Survival mode or go on a monstrous safari in Beast Hunt mode!
  • Pure Multiplayer Mayhem – Drop the gauntlet and let the heavy ordinance fly in incredible versus modes like Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Last Team Standing and My Burden. This is the next level of Serious Sam multiplayer and all hell is about to break loose!
  • Split Screen Modes – Huddle up with split screen co-op and multiplayer versus modes with up to four players on one screen. Hey, stop looking at my screen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic April 5, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
I can't tell you how happy I am that there is another Serious Sam game. While I appreciate the other styles of games, there is nothing as satisfying as sitting down to a run and gun shooter. Why don't more companies make these kind of games anymore? When I get home, stressed from work, playing a little Sam does the trick. Seriously, its pure adrenaline fun. Enjoy!

I love this game. It has the same non-stop action as the previous titles but with much better graphics. Co-op is a lot of fun if you can get other friends to get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chaotic and Lots of Fun in Doses March 20, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
This is a very fun game in doses. After maybe 45 minutes the repetition wears me down to a point of it being a chore. In 30-60 minute doses though, the chaotic destruction is enjoyable. There are a ton of weapon options, ammo is plentiful, enemies comes in enormous continuous waves. The fighting is endless. No deep thought is required. Just run and shoot. If you get overwhelmed in later levels, it's pretty easy to retreat a bit to divide and conquer enemies that pursue at different speeds.

Graphics are nice. The level design is nothing visually mind-blowing. The entire game takes place in Egypt so there's a lot of desert and fragments of ruins. Interior levels are a bit of a pain. Visibility is limited. You need to use a flashlight to see anything and finding your way isn't always easy. Levels are very linear. There's zero exploration outside of locating secret items scattered about (often in the corners).

This game is a first-person shooter in it's standard mode, but it's easy to toggle into third-person. I played the entire game in third-person and found it to play extremely well in that mode with the exception of jumping to scale an object. I tried jumping in first-person, however, and it didn't really make any difference.

I liked the story in this game. It's very simplistic. Aliens are everywhere. Sam is on his own as he quests to turn on some crazy weapons known as the "Time Lock." It's not a deep story, but it's not bad for a game that is basically chaos incarnate. Sam is an over-the-top tough guy with a touch of humor, so he's fun enough in the role of narrator.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious Sam Still Brings the Boom April 5, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
I am a bit biased but love what Croteam has done with Serious Sam 3. Classic Serious Sam feel with new, modern tweaks here and there to keep it fresh and fun. Highly recommended for action junkies.

Just like the title says this game is fast paced run and gun, lots of ammo, lots of guns, lots of monsters,aliens whatever you want to call them. The gameplay is more like a the old-golden age of FPS in the late 90s and early 2000s (If you like modern warfare type shooters or BF3 type games this might not be your cup of tea if you liked doom, quake or duke nukem or something from the older days then it might be). You run over guns and ammo to pick them up you can manually reload now which is a new feature or you can just it let auto reload like in the old series sam games. The game had very little bugs and glitches for me either I did not notice them or they did not appear I played it solo and co-op online(twice) it worked fine(This game co-op with 16 is a blast). Also expect to die alot and just keep charging monsters like no tomorrow if you love action, gore and badly written but stupidly funny bad jokes and one liners then you wil like this game. The Graphics are good too using the new serious engine so it looks smooth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plain simple fun December 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I've been FPS gaming since the first Doom and Heretic. It seems that now for a game to succeed, it has to push the envelope in every way. The new merging of FPS and RPG modes makes me long for the golden days of brainless fun. This game fills that void and then some. It's not really THAT brainless either. When your confronted by hoards of baddies, you need a strategy or your gonna get creamed. The graphics and background music blend perfectly. Personally, after a bad day at the office, sometimes I don't want to think too much. This game allows you to forget your bad day by just trying to survive the frenetic game play. It does get really hard at times but those are few and far between. You can't beat the price too.
Just turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and have a good time.

Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
First of all, ya gotta be a Serious Sam fan to help you put up with the cheesy graphics, crude jokes and all them critters trying to kill you. Learning to shoot straight while advancing to the rear is a must. SOSS - same ol' Serious Sam. To the old fans I'll say this is the best SS game yet. Better puzzles, much better graphics but the same old familiar cheesiness. Love it.

There's a lot there: humor, solid mods, fun weaponry. At the same time, throughout the entire story there was something that left the gameplay unfulfilled. Read more

I loved this game, yes you have to have Steam to play.

But it's nothing more than a mindless shoot 'em up and you gotta take the time to play it!
