Serious Sam: The First Encounter is innovative in many ways but also at the same time can get really sour. The idea of a skeleton chasing you on its claws like a Texas Havana mixture looks funny. The idea of beheaded people chasing you with bombs stuck at their hands shouting in chorus looks funny. The idea of facing a 100 feet tall leviathan looks tough. The idea of facing a Lava golem looks tough.
But the main idea of serious Sam to properly mix the humour and action into one makes the game turn into a real bad joke. Stuttering music, and strange puzzles aren't fun they are REAL DUMB!.
