Hundreds of enemies on screen at once in an old-school style shooter, this game, people, requires nothing but a fast mouse-hand... Serious Sam is a serious shooting game and despite the silly name is one of the best first person shooters to have ever graced the PC format. The story is extremely simple, some aliens have travelled back in time to ancient Egypt in order to change Earth's past and Sam has been sent by Earth's forces to stop them. Thus starts hours of frantic non-stop action in the first game to use the much talked about 'Serious Engine'. This engine allows for Serious Sam to display dozens of enemies on screen at once with no ... Read the complete review

There’s nothing like a good First Person shoot em up (FPS) to while away the hours. I’ve probably played most of them on a variety of platforms beginning with the legendary Wolfstein through Doom to the trilogy of Quake games stopping off the way to play Duke Nukem, Unreal, the classic Half Life and a slew of others (Blood, Shogo and Requiem to name a few). There’s something engrossing about these games that always draws me back to the genre. Maybe it’s the immersion fact, maybe it’s the style of game play or maybe it’s because according to Right wing American pressure groups I want to be turned into a mindless killing machine.

Back in the day first person shooters were just that, a shooting game viewed from a first person perspective. Looking at today’s games we see a much more complex bunch of wannabes. Games like Deus Ex and Project IGI have moved the genre on miles, and games like Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament having taken the single player frag fest to its limits. Surprisingly then, Croteam (the Croatian developers of the game) have taken more than one step backwards and released Serious Sam, an unashamed frag fest from start to finish. I was about to make my usual comparisons with Quake or even Doom, but in this case I can't. Serious Sam is, put simply, more simple than ... Read the complete review

For every game that tries to do the gaming world a favour and depict video games as art, there is another game that's uniformly dumb and meets people's expectations that the medium is a simple conception for simple people. Serious Sam is one of the most unpretentious, gloriously brainless and downright thrilling games I've ever played. It is a whole lot of fun, as long as you aren't expecting anything approximating depth or nuanced gameplay. For its time this was a very good looking game, and although it still looks alright, I was recently pleased to see that it has been remade in "HD", which I will certainly be checking out soon. Nevertheless, the ... Read the complete review

I sit and write this a short while after completing the game, only two days after I got a copy. And well, I'm impressed, I'm VERY impressed, which is not an everyday occurence. The gameplay is simple in the extreme: You go in to a room and a large number of enemies (ranging from beheaded sucide bombers through skeletons to chaingun armed scorpians) and kill them all. Sometimes, by way of a change, there will be some switches or things to pick up. When this is so your handy AI will alert you what to do. There are a good range of weapons, dual pistols right up to a uranium firing cannon(!!!). The mini-gun is particularly good fun, the massive ... Read the complete review
