Simply Glorious
I just finished my first playthrough of this part of the franchise. I decided on playing on "serious" AND LET ME TELL YOU HOLY ♥♥♥♥... It took almost 100 hours... That final encounter!! ZOMG!!! If that fight was an MMO Raid Boss many people in the community would cry for a nerf.

so, in short... If you love blowing ♥♥♥♥ up, & enjoyed any of the previous iterations of the game you will love this one. I highly recommend playing it on top two difficulties, as that's what serious sam is all about... Pooping your pants while trying not to die, kiting 100 + aliens, running out of ammo, clubbing them in the face with a sledge...

the baddies, huh? whatever. i would have chimed right in to agree with you if it hadn't been for the poor attitude.

Um... Sure... ok... Not sure how else to get across how insane the final encounter was besides comparing it to an over powered MMO raid boss.

OK, edited my comparison towards "bad's crying nerf on mmo raid bosses day 1"

I was playing that last level on serious difficulty for the achievement, but then I completed the whole thing in one try without dying or loading a save... boss fight included

Got the Queen Hatshepsut achievement for doing that.

It wasn't my first run at that level. It was the second time I beat the whole thing but the first time I attempted it on serious difficulty. Grats to anyone who can complete this level AT ALL on serious difficulty.

I was slow figuring out the mechanics of the last fight, probably took me an hour to figure out to put the damned rods in his back, then another 2-3 hours of actually killing him. I'm going to play through TFE & TSE, then go back & replay BFE on serious.

See, i was trying to figure out if I should just ignore all the mobs spawning, or kill them off. Which was a huge waste/sink of time.

So far TFE is much more challenging on serious when it comes to trash, due to the random nature of the spawns.(by random i mean ♥♥♥♥ spawning behind you)

Love that comment haha. I'm trying to convince a friend of mine to play this with me and he asked me what SS is about and that's basically what I told him lol.

Yeah SS3 is definitely blowing me away. Playing on hard difficulty for my first playthrough, thoroughly enjoying it. This is what an fps is all about. Looking forward to a second playthrough on serious difficulty.

second encounter on hard is probably harder then BFE on serious. NoJOKE... I'm now bleeding in my pants, not just pooping.

The First Encounter is by far the hardest sam game. Especially if you trigger the health/ammo/armour traps.

It'll make your butt drop off.

I just played first encounter and it was ridiculous. Its got some real sadisticly trolly "screw you" traps. It's probably my own fault though. I see the 1 health pickup and I'm like........ yeah I'm gonna get that. I think only 1 or 2 times I came out of those traps without damage that completely nullified my pickup, both times with ammo lost, many times I died.

Playing that game on hard was really serious.

=D playing HD #1 & #2 makes me miss the old days of truly challenging encounters. Finish a level "You saved 130 times, out of a limit of 16!"

By the way, if you live in the USA. NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH NCIX, THEY ARE SCUM, LYING SACK OF ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ SUCKING MOTHER ♥♥♥♥ERS.

Holy crap, this game is intense.

I just got through the final stretch before the boss. I had to kill so many of everything, that I think my harddrive must weigh less now.

I don't think I can call anything else an FPS after this. Other games may be first-person, but they're not shooters.

I hope you got the golden edition with the HD remakes... If you did, jump into Serious Sam: Second encounter, & play through #1 & #2(egypt is #1, Africa is #2) (both are included in secound encounter) the fun is just getting started.

Nope, I didn't even know about those. I'll pick 'em up when they're on sale.

TSE is not Africa, it's South America, Persia and Medieval Europe.
