Post More Hands-On With Serious Sam 3 @ Ars Technica

http://static.arstechnica.net/assets/2011/08/serious_sam_split_screen_mp_4player-4e44874-intro-thumb-640xauto-24592.jpg

Ars Technica has posted their hands-on preview of Serious Sam 3: BFE. The game starts off slow to lull you into a false sense of security before it mauls you with monsters from every direction imaginable. First-timers to the series will have the pleasure of a simple learning curve: move your feet or you're toast! Bunny-hop, circle-strafe, and run like hell backwards while firing everything you have into the horde. Unfortunately, that may not be enough. Save points are your friend.

You're going to need a strong set of surround sound speakers to play this game effectively. These headless enemies come from every direction and the only way to keep them at bay is to listen to their screams to sense their direction, then blow them up before they get to you. Catch them when they're close to other bad guys, and you can take out great swaths of enemies with only a few bullets.

This becomes more complicated when the giant, lumbering mechs begin to attack with their rapid-fire lasers, so you'll always have to adapt.

On the small chance that this isn't insane enough for you, the game also allows up to 16 players in the co-op mode. If you have a number of USB gamepads, you can also play with up to four players in splitscreen mode in either co-op or competitive play.

The game will keep you on the edge of your seat and will pump your adrenaline levels so high it should probably come with a heart attack warning! Get ready for the end of the world!
