    Is Serious Sam 4 the best game in the series yet? Quite possibly. I still prefer the Egyptian setting of Serious Sam: The First Encounter, but the action found in Serious Sam 4 is unrivalled. Trudging through city streets in the early hours of the game can be uninspiring at times, but it’s never dull. And once Serious Sam 4 opens up it becomes an absolute riot on a scale never-before witnessed. In fact, Serious Sam 4 is the first game to give me some next-gen feels. If you like blasting hordes of aliens in the face while listening to witty one-liners, this is an absolute must-have.

    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.

    Serious Sam 4 keeps its promises and turns out to be a more than average old-fashioned shooter, but don’t expect a great deal of innovation, variety or excellent graphics.

    Impossible, then, not to feel a bit of a bitter taste in your mouth in the face of a dated and limp technical sector, which shows the signs of still incomplete optimization work. In short, Serious Sam 4 has put a half-smile on our faces, even if we do not make any effort to recommend the purchase to all the historical fans of the series.

    Serious Sam 4 may be repetitive, with an overly simplistic story and could be better in graphical terms... But it's a love letter to those who enjoyed the 90's FPS where killing things was the important shit. In these early days the proposal lacks some more game modes such as mods, multiplayer, coop options and more, but it's enough to have a crazy fun game night.

    Even if Serious Sam 4 feels truly dated, with visuals that will bring you back a few years, the game is still a blast to play, with thousands of foes ant the same time, and a very good gameplay that mixes fast-FPS with beat'em all. Just wait a bit until all the bugs are ironed out.

    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.

    It is extremely interesting to watch clowns who are not satisfied with the graphics and plot in serious Sam. Graphics and plot in the series,It is extremely interesting to watch clowns who are not satisfied with the graphics and plot in serious Sam. Graphics and plot in the series, about killing hordes of monsters in the style of old shooters. Also, don't forget about the game's budget, as well as how many employees worked on it.
    The game perfectly copes with the goal.
    Those who expected it to have advanced graphics and a brilliant plot are stupid clowns.

    A relic from ancient times. yes i'm a fan of the first and second part. They were fun but the gameplay was cheap.
    Part 3 was then less good

    Part 3 was then less good and was boring.
    Now we have part 4 and that looks better, but the old gameplay is so through. Finally lock the game series in the closet and leave it there.
