This DLC is a must-buy for anyone that played and enjoyed Serious Sam 3: BFE. While the Egyptian setting is worn threadbare at this point, content exhaustion is mitigated with clever map design. It would be nice to see new environments, but this is a great booster pack of content until that day comes.

In the end, Jewel of The Nile is fun, replayable, and generally above-average as far as DLC goes. It’s hard to shake the feeling that it was padded out a little, and given that the underlying (and much larger) game was recently on sale for around the price of this addon, it’s hard to recommend it wholeheartedly. For huge fans of Serious Sam (see our full review of SS3 on sister-site DIYGamer here) wanting some more co-op stages, it’s an easy sell, and for those on the fence it’s a no-brainer once the inevitable winter sale discounts hit, but while good, I can’t really call this an essential.

Despite their earlier misstep, this expansion was clearly made by people who understand the appeal of Serious Sam, and cared about giving fans of the series what they expected. Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile goes a long way towards resurrecting the feel of the franchise that Serious Sam 3 was so sorely lacking, and I can only hope that this pack indicates that the developers have course-corrected, ensuring more bombastic and overwhelming Serious Sam games in years to come. Really, I'll be happy so long as I'm never asked to to sneak through another museum. That's Sly Cooper's job, not Sam Stone's.

Alles in allem ist die Erweiterung “Jewel of the Nile” eher etwas für die hartgesottenen Fans von Serious Sam 3: BFE, da es zum einen zu wenig Umfang hat und zum anderen genauso wenig Abwechslung gibt wie vorher. Der Multiplayer reißt da nur wenig raus, da es schwierig ist, überhaupt eine Spiellobby zu finden. Das Einzige, was nach wie vor am meisten Spaß macht, ist, mit einem Freund im Splitscreen die Kampagne zu spielen – diesen gab es jedoch auch schon ohne Erweiterung.

Вообще, сквозящая в каждой мелочи небрежность – главная черта Jewel of the Nile. Глупый и натянутый сюжет, неудачные шутки, неаккуратный дизайн локаций, отсутствие нормальных пополнений в арсенале и «зверинце» (один гость из First Encounter не в счет), бессистемно раскиданные патроны, втиснутый, «чтобы был», реактивный ранец… Последняя капля – финальный (и единственный) «босс»: увеличенная в размерах копия обычного противника.
