I don't really have any. There's really no level when I'm playing that makes me go: "Oh damn, wish I'd skip this one." Every level has their memorable moments, key events that make it stand out as a "Sam moment."

Though I must admit Sewers is my least favorite. The last swim through foggy fish infested waters with a confusing layout is one I could do without. It takes one fish blast to the face to completely lose your bearing.

I really like suburbs because it's a real change of pace from big open space to semi-closed space

(Plus you can have a lot of fun rocket jumping in coop if you're really bored)

Moon Mountains, because Moon Mountains.

Dunes because Dunes.

Karnak because I just really like the layout.

Welp, due to the late hour at which I read this thread, I thought it was about the least favorite level.

So my favorites are Moon Mountains because of the different style, Dunes because it's the first level with epic scale fights, Karnak because it's really the embodiment of a Serious Sam level in all aspects and The Great Pyramid because of obvious reasons (especially a 330' reason).

I'd also vote for Oasis because that's a pretty cool and interesting short map

Default Re: So what are your 3 favorite levels in the First Encounter?

I didn't really like The Great Pyramid due to lack of enemy variety. They should have added more beheaded soldiers, gnaars and other enemies. In co-op it's not as severe.

However, my favorite 3 levels are (in no particular order):

Tomb of Ramses III: A good example how to do an indoor level. You move at rather brisk pace as well. The final area is maybe a bit too long or just lacks variety though.

Suburbs: One of those good examples of levels where ambushes are small but numerous.

Metropolis: It's like a combination of small ambushes in Suburbs, arena fighting in Dunes plus intense fights in the third section after scarab yards and before the final arena where your ammo supplies are dwindling.

What's just out from the list:

Dunes: A good example on how to do the arena fighting. Maybe a bit more enemy variety at the end would have been nice.

I think I like most of the levels equally though the only levels I didn't like very much in TFE were Sewers and Alley of the Sphinxes.

Moon Mountains - colorful, green, a lot of water - perfect level to dilute the "sandness" of the game.
Alley of the Sphinxes - even though it's a veeery basic, simple and linear level, I love it's gameplay and how it's evolving from the beginning to the end. Also, great boss battle at the end.
Karnak - beautiful level, awesome layout and gameplay. My favorite map in the whole game - both in the final version and (especially) in alpha-build. For some reason, I love more or less complex levels like this, they also very delightful to explore.
