    Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass is a return to form for fans of the franchise, with more than enough new mechanics and contents to keep the formula interesting and fresh.

    Serious Sam 4 doesn't deviate from the other entries in the mainline series, and that's perfectly okay. The fourth installment looks and handles perfectly, though some players may succumb to the repetition before the campaign concludes. That said, it's still an absolute blast to play, and it should keep fans busy for quite some time.

    If you like the idea of running and gunning, feeling well and truly outnumbered but having a chance to defeat the odds then this could well be up your alley. If you require a bit more polish and seriousness (pun semi intended) in your game then this may be more down a dark path.

    Serious Sam 4 is fun to play – and an even bigger joy if you bring co-op into the mix. If you’re a fan of the series, then you’re going to feel right at home. If you’ve never played a Serious Sam game, then just don’t go into it expecting the same level of narrative as story-driven games, because you aren’t going to find it here.

    Serious Sam 4 is a no-brainer for fans of the series and is a game that fans of singleplayer/co-op shooters will likely enjoy too.

    Serious Sam 4 could have been a total reinvention of the franchise, a step forward to revitalize a series that still has to take advantage of this new golden age of old school shooters. However, this is a wasted opportunity: the same game, but with the largest number of enemies to fight. If you're looking for the same Serious Sam, then this new installment may end up meeting your needs.

    Serious Sam is looking seriously tired, with a new sequel that makes only the most perfunctory attempt to doing anything new for the franchise or shooters in general.

    I hate running backwards! Seriously, this is a huge improvement compared to the previous parts of the series.

    This is a good game. This game is pure comedy, so it has to been reviewd as such. Despretentious fun with nice grapthics. Serious sam hasThis is a good game. This game is pure comedy, so it has to been reviewd as such. Despretentious fun with nice grapthics. Serious sam has never been know for its story, so dont hope for such here because its almost non existant. For this one point taken.
    Starts really well, with amazing textures on walls, paitingns, statues etc... but in the middle of the game to the end looks like developers got sloopy and you will encounter dubious "art" retrated in canvas, horrendous windows at houses among other things. Not to mention repetitive models and randomnize like scenarios at castle phases. Like, passages that leads to nowhere etc... Its almost like if you were dreaming instead of being in a real world fighting aliens. For that one point taken.
    Difficulty is not balanced. I played most part of the game (90%) in hard difficulty, but bosses were so hard that you will have to lower to easy if you inteend to proceeed. For that 1 point taken.
    For the first time serious sam has friends and that was a plus. So far its our avarage serious sam as always. So far this is the best game so far. I recommend if you are a fan or if you LOVE kill a TON of aliens.
    There are better options out there ? Yes there is. But man, this game is fun and graphics are outsanding.

    Текстуры подгружаются прямо перед глазами и возобновляется подгрузка как только отварачиваешся. Игра скучнее 3 части.
    Итог: 5.003/10

    Game is not perfect by design, but pretty good at shooting. Optimization for now is trash, but playable.
