    This is a bombastic, flippant, amusingly grotesque game that compensates for a lack of wit with hyperactive energy and overstatement.

    I loved my time with Serious Sam Double D XXL, but it certainly isn’t going to set the world on fire. From someone who has serious fatigue for the series, XXL was a fresh twist on a familiar idea. Anyone who enjoys the series should check it out. Just don’t go into it expecting revolution and you will be fine. Serious Sam has a specific audience and XXL caters to that. Now just get rid of Huff and bring on the sequel.

    It is a decent amount of unbridled chaos with some absurd enemy design and a solid weapon mechanic. While not the most innovative or engaging title, it is likely to provide enough entertainment for Serious Sam fans to be worth looking into.

    Serious Sam Double D XXL is perfectly suited as a fun 2D arcade game in which you have to kill countless crazy and over the top enemies. It's a Serious Sam game the fan will recognize in a heartbeat. The plot is almost non-existent, however, and there are some serious framerate drops in the coöperative mode. For a simple, explosive shoot 'em up, you will a lot of guilty pleasure in Double D XXL, though.

    The over-the-top carnage is rounded out with co-op play (starring new redneck pal Huff), vehicle stages, new levels not in the PC version, and an inexhaustible supply of sticky high-jump pads — though it’s held back by rough visuals, co-op lag, and an overall lack of polish.

    It’s nice that some games test your intellectual capacity or submerge you in a deep narrative, but games like Serious Sam Double D XXL are the necessary counterbalance. A game that simply offers entertainment that requires zero intellect to enjoy. A nice snack.

    Crazy and weird don't necessarily add up to fun.

    Dishes out more of the colourful carnage the original was well received for and stuffs plenty of additional content into this gun pie. One ingredient missing, however, is innovation.

    Ballsy cartoon guts and supersploding stupidity. [March 2013, p.89]

    The epitome of “shut your brain off and shoot” gaming. In fact you might as well take your brain right out of your head and throw it down a set of stairs because nothing here will test your intelligence.

    Serious Sam Double D XXL really is a 2D Serious Sam. The stackable weapons are nice; however, the gameplay and the jokes are a little bit too moronic. The multiplayer is ok, for some hours, but after playing a while, the game gets boring.

    Consistency seems to be what prevents Serious Sam Double D XXL elevating from a good game to a great game.

    It’s fun for a few hours, in which chaotic gunfights, funny weapons and a couple creative moments manage to get your attention. However, the game is too shallow to keep your attention for long. Just like its big brother Serious Sam Double D XXL is corny, simple fun, but never anything more.

    An odd beast, one which seems unsure whether it’s trying to be a genuine throwback, or ironically retro; the graphics and gameplay indicate the former, but its difficulty level and tone suggest the latter.
