    Simple, effective wholesale slaughter

    Do you remember the scene from the first Matrix where Neo and Trinity take over the government building? Serious Sam does. Serious Sam doesn't believe in ammo conservation. He doesn't believe that you should go in with l... Read Full Review

    A grand old arcade shooter. Co-op and all. Seriously

    I remember when Serious Sam made it's Debut on the PC. At first glance, it seemed like an advanced DOOM clone. I was wrong. Here's the story so far: An evil guy named Mental has sent his legions of baddies to Earth th... Read Full Review

    big guns, big monsters, big shootouts, big laughs - what more could you want? (contains spoilers)

    Serious Sam, while nothing is serious about this title, except for the gameplay, you won't regret giving it a try.

    I don't think I'll never see another FPS like this again, and it's a real shame, that this gem didn't get the cred it deserves. I have never played a game so hard core, that you literally have to spin in circles, spewing... Read Full Review

    Serious Sam is back and this time its the first and second encounter!

    If its one thing I enjoy about the Xbox its the fact that sooner or later, most of the great FPS I enjoyed from the PC will be released on it. Case in point: Serious Sam (both first and second encounters) with the abili... Read Full Review

    Though Serious Sam does not have much of a story, the fun arcade style gameplay makes up for it.

    Croteam (the makers of Serious Sam) only made one game so far, and that was Serious Sam. Though they only made one game, the game they made was really good! Croteam has a bright future ahead of them. They are currently i... Read Full Review
