Post Joystiq Previews Serious Sam 3: BFE

We have another good preview of Serious Sam 3: BFE from Joystiq with some commentary on the old and new game mechanics and how well they mesh together. Also, prepare for nonstop action since Sam will be on the run from the start in this game.

My small taste of Serious Sam 3: BFE proved one thing to me: the Serious Sam formula has aged well, but has been made that much better through a few careful tweaks. Sprinting could be considered a minor thing, but when Sam is constantly bombarded by enemies the added mobility really comes in handy. Aiming down the sights is yet another standard part of shooters today, yet new to Serious Sam -- here it aids in the strategy of threat management in new ways. The only issue I have is with the melee and its value later in the game, where I'm pretty sure the absence of firearms will guarantee death.

Serious Sam 3: BFE, in this Alpha state, showed a cautious update to the original formula. It doesn't stray from its intense, arcadey roots, and that's something fans of the first two games are sure to appreciate. With its few careful additions to the formula, it's an experience enriched by a marriage between the old and new.
They say when you get married the bride should get something new, something used, and something blue. In this case.. the only thing blue will be some hardcore fans. Check out the rest of the preview here at Joystiq.

Thanks Louva-Deus, you've done a great job informing us about all the previews.

I dare to say this is the best preview I've read so far. The guy really wrote everything what was happening while he was playing. I felt like I was there playing myself

I like how you start the game barehanded, struggling for survival. It will be very interesting.

That review actually made me not very concerned with the changes being made.
As long as sam's traditional speed is kept, and sprint just enhances the speed.

Very nice review.
And, as AR said, made me feel like I had also played the game.
