    Serious Sam is great, I loved playing the original, the first and second encounter, I even enjoyed Serious Sam 2. But, BFE on the Xbox 360, is an alright game, the graphics look absolutely awful for this 360 version, i don't know if its a bad port, or what, but it looks ugly. yet the gameplay mostly makes up for this with fun arena based shooting the **** put of everything with big assSerious Sam is great, I loved playing the original, the first and second encounter, I even enjoyed Serious Sam 2.

I guess the game just feels really bland in setting and environment as well as gameplay, its just not very innovate, innovation is everything within a game, without it, its just not fun. Expand

    Very fun, a non-sense mixture between the ancient Egypt and a Alien Invasion. A lot of ammunition everywhere, thousands and thousands enemies everywhere, Incredibly funny!
    . Black points in the game, monotony scenes, non DLC included (Multiplayer DLC),and more variety of enemies will be welcome.
    Serious SamĀ“s series essence 100%. I love this screamings kamikazes!

    The game had the potential to surpass Serious Sam 1, yet, I found the main drawback was the poor attempt at a larger map, more secrets and most horribly, puzzles. THIS GAME HAD TOO MUCH WALKING, I DID NOT BUY IT TO WALK FOR 5 HOURS.

    PLEASE, developers, if you're reading this, don't make Serious Sam 4 as confusing, I ended up walking for atleast 20 minutes on some occasions in 3. LESS

    As a stand-alone offering, the XBLA version of Serious Sam 3 is undeniably flawed but also undeniably enjoyable.

    It's a nice game if you just like to shoot stuff and don't care about perks and story-lines. I can offer a challenge, but lacks variation on the other hand. In the end the price seems a little steep for what you get.

    All things considered, Sam's been seriously shafted. [Christmas 2012, p.99]
