This is, of course, the newest Serious Sam game. It's supposed to be a prequel to the first game, with the subtitle being "BFE", which stands for "Before the First Encounter". The game has some pretty damn fun gameplay. If you never played a Serious Sam game before, it's basically like a top-down shooter, similar to Gauntlet or Geometry Wars. The difference is that it's in a first-person perspective. Waves of enemies will come at you unrelentingly. For people who have played Serious Sam before and didn't read much on this series entry, let me just say this: The final level is supposed to have ~1800 enemies on the hardest difficulty. That's more enemies than the last levels of First Encounter and Second Encounter combined. This game looks pretty damn good, especially for an indie game. The character models are extremely detailed (although the animation isn't that good) and the guns are also really nice-looking. There's also some DX10/11 features being put to use in some places. I have the color settings set to Vivid, with the contrast turned up slightly. The only complaints I have is that some of the textures are a bit too low-res, and there are some tiny lighting issues here and there. Please note that these are only screenshots of the city levels. I'll grab some screenshots of the desert levels once I get further into the single player. After getting a secret area, I found this: After finishing an awful, awful level (which thankfully, according to people who have played through single player, is the worst part of the game): You can also rip out Gnaar eyes in this game, as seen here: Found a mini-secret medpack. Really needed this. Alright, now I'm doing some online co-op. 16 players is the max. I think there were 8 players including me at the time. Was that gun not big enough for you? How about this? Looks like someone found the cannon. Boss battle: And here's a cutscene. The game is PC-exclusive at the moment, but it's coming for Mac soon, and consoles sometime this year. Also, it's on sale at Amazon. Only $12, and that is a steal. It's only for spring break, so act fast if you want this game. NOTE: This game has EXTREMELY HIGH system requirements. I just installed a new graphics card in my computer (2.5GB GTX 570), and it still lags on more intense battles. There isn't any bottlenecking in my computer, and I'm not even on the highest settings. I've even heard reports of people with dual GTX 580's getting some framerate drops on the higher settings. That being said, the game has pretty low system requirements on the lower settings.
