A serious game for not-so-serious gamers
8 January 2014 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

General information:

Serious Sam 3: BFE (Before First Encounter)is an action game and it was developed by Croteam. It was published in 2011 and even though it says "3" in the title, it is actually already a fourth PC installment of the series so far - seriously! It is a very hectic fps-game (first-person shooter) where Sam Stone tries to defend the Earth against a massive alien invasion. BFE takes place, surprise, before the earlier games.

The main idea of the game is to offer ridiculous moments in a form of exaggerated carnage and cheesy one-liners. If you are looking for a nice story or puzzles... Well, keep looking since you won't find them in this game.


If you have liked the previous games, then you will seriously love this one, too. BFE is beautiful and the game engine, Serious Engine 3.5, allows nice dynamics. The enemies are various and they are more interesting than before. Also, the game is surprisingly long and one can happily play it again.

The atmosphere is amusing; John J. Dick is still the voice actor of Sam and even the soundtrack is fitting. There are some very ludicrous dialog and cut scenes. However, the biggest pro of this game is, luckily, the shooting. Everything is perfect in it - thanks to Serious Engine 3.5.


The plot is corny but I must stress that it's like that on purpose. The series has always been full of bugs and BFE is no exception. Still, the worst fact is that BFE is not as hard as its predecessors. This won't probably be a problem to everyone but the serious fans will cry. The series is widely-known for its sadistic Serious difficulty.


A serious package of action! Seriously recommended for anybody who wants to turn their brains off for a while and let the alien scum have it! However, if you want a bigger meaning and an epic story then you should avoid this game like a plague. This kind of humor just isn't for everyone. But if it indeed is for you, then you should also try the DLC (downloadable content) Jewel of The Nile.
