    But enthusiasm alone can't cure fatal problems with the flat, tedious gameplay; and while almost everything about Serious Sam Double D sounds and looks fun, it is barely any fun to play at all.

    The last time I saw such a bad game was... damn, I don't even remember when it was. It's boring, ugly, suffers of bad programming and violates your ears with abysmal music. [October, p.80]

Exactly how i like it :). This small game is full packed with guns, ridiculous enemies...and that's it. Simply Serious Sam in 2d side-scroller. Too bad there are no multiplayer option (classic coop for two players). Overall - it's a good cheap game not only for Serious Sam fans. Full Review »

You can stack guns on top of each other for a maximum of 6, and combine that with the craziest enemies you've ever seen. You have Lava monsters jumping on Pogo Sticks, and stacks of Pancakes with Trumpets and forks for legs....and anything else you haven't imagined. It's quite simply...fun. Lots of enemies, killing all around, and just plain chaotic at most times.
    Games have always been about one thing: Being fun. That's exactly what this game is. The graphics aren't exactly impressive, but when you consider the insane amounts of fun...who cares? The game is a BLAST, quite literally. It's fun making combinations of guns to mow down your enemies, and really is just what Serious Sam has always been about, hordes of enemies, and plain old fashioned fun slaughtering all of them. That's exactly what you get here. It's not trying to be the new big thing, it's trying to be what games have forgotten about being...fun.

It offers crazy 2D shooter carnage while bringing absolutely nothing new to the plate. It's great if you're looking for a throwback to the old days. But if you're looking for something new and fresh, you'd best look elsewhere. Full Review »
