    This is one of the best xbox fps'. That's saying a lot since there are many great ones. But think the reason why reviewers aren't always kind to it is b/c it's fairly simple stuff.

You'll be amazed at all the crazy enemies that can be attacking you all at once. It's not unusual for 20 crazy mosters to be charging you from all different directions at any given time. Overall it feels like a satire fps because it's so over the top. Expand

    Seriously, this is one of those sleepers that make you glad to take chances on new games. it reminds me of games like record of lodoss war(dc), or smash tv, its just fun to play. i feel the graphics are great, the surround works perfectly and some of the characters are hysterical (suicide bombers screaming as they run at you). ill never sell this game, and i would bet that down the line itSeriously, this is one of those sleepers that make you glad to take chances on new games. it reminds me of games like record of lodoss war(dc), or smash tv, its just fun to play. i feel the graphics are great, the surround works perfectly and some of the characters are hysterical (suicide bombers screaming as they run at you). ill never sell this game, and i would bet that down the line it would end up on ebay as a collectors piece, seriously.

    Serious Sam takes the first-person shooter genre and cooks it down until nothing but a pure adrenaline-filled blastfest remains. Its twisted sense of humor only makes it that much sweeter. This is an overlooked gem of a game, as it is sequel. Definitely worth picking up.

    This game is awesome! If it were any better I would not believe it was just a game. Great graphics. Two thumbs up for people who like shooting games. One of my favorite games. Kill tons of guys at a time!

  1. Perhaps the best thing about Serious Sam though is just how pristine it is. It’s a very, very polished game.
  2. Visually, Sam looks only decent, and slowdown creeps into play from time to time. You've seen better. [Winter 2002, p.106]
  3. Great gameplay, great graphics, great levels, great lead character, great amount of gaming-time hours: you name it this game does it GREAT.
