    The ultimate pwnage...

    It is a rare occurrence that a game sequel exceeds the expectations and surpasses the predecessor. This is the case. Serious Sam The Second Encounter is the total package - an uber pwnage like non else seen. This revi... Read Full Review

    good veery good

    Serious Sam the Second Encounter, while not a true sequel, still kicks alot of ass. You get an entire new adventure that is really long. You get new weapons like the chainsaw, flamethrower, and sniper rifle, which are lo... Read Full Review

    The perfect shooter, aliens, plenty of levels, hidden bonuses, everything!

    I'd never heard of any of the serious series until I'd search for Dukem equivalent games some time ago, and to my delight this game appeared. Have played the death out of dukem, I needed something to tingle my senses, so... Read Full Review

    Serious violence

    I only played the demo, but I can tell you I don't REALLY want the game. The shooting just feels long-winded, I was wishing it would just end. But, in true serious sam fashion, it won't. The best part about the graphics ... Read Full Review

    Shred them into pieces!

    Not a lot to say about this simple yet addictive game. No decent story to be concerned about, just shoot-them-up and make them suffer style of play. Loads of guns to use, some of them have original touch to it, like can... Read Full Review

    A Bland Sequel.

    Serious Sam: The Second Encounter does not live up to the Serious Sam name. There has been few changes from Serious Sam: The First Encounter. Of those changes, they actually make the game less exciting and fun. Since ... Read Full Review
