This is a cool game. The mechanics are simple, and the game is simple. I got all achievements in just 11h of gameplay.

I will do some pros and cons for the game.

PROS
-The game is simple to play
-The graphics are decent enough
-You will get 2 games when you buy the game, you'll get an Original Version(2011) and Enhanced Version + CO-OP(2013)
-The versions don't have much difference, the newer is better in dialogues and when you pick up a gun or something else there is a cut-scene with metal soundtrack
-The hidden areas that you can find are not hard to find
-The soundtracks and voice actors are awesome
-The game has no bugs/glitches

CONS
-CO-OP is like playing on 1 PC with keyboard and GamePad, not through internet connection
-Community is almost dead
-No Multiplayer

I rate it 9/10. Would play as Serious Sam again. I recommend it.

Serious Sam Double D XXL is a 2D shoot'em'up, one of the games that were part of Indie series of Serious Sam franchise, made by non-Croteam developers. Main feature of this shoot'em'up is ability to stack guns on top of each other. It was made by Mommy's Best Games in 2011, only to come out on XBLA in 2013 as XXL edition and then get Steam version updated to XXL as well. You can choose to play both Double D or DD XXL edition.
It also came out on Xbox 360 through Xbox Live Arcade, but there isn't any reason to prefer it over PC version.

Multiplayer is local only. So don't expect to play online.

The first thing you see is selection between Double D and Double D XXL edition. I suggest you to go after XXL edition immeditly. Double D has no vehicle levels, no coop and no special upgrades for weapons. Without special upgrades for weapons it just doesn't make you think much, you just open gunstacker menu anytime and put weapons into single stack for highest DPS and that's it. And thinking about choosing weapon is important aspect of Serious Sam so it's dissapointing. Other difference is saving anytime, editing gunstack anytime, your own explosions harm you and golden guns which are just lazy direct upgrades you get after beating game.

I also can't help but to recommend a gamepad for this one. Well, it's XInput only, so preferably Xbox 360 one. Aiming with mouse really feels bad in this one.

And indeed, at first it seems like an average twin-stick 2D shoot'em'up. It's not very hot. Art style is that ugly sloppy Flash style that scream comedy Indie. Music is also not good, either being annoying ambient or somewhat cool yet generic fight music.

Then after some time of playing you will collect some guns and finally a wrench which is Gunstacker Connector. Trademark. Copyright. Awesomeright. You have a few stacks and you can put up to 6 weapons on top of each other in each one of them. This feature by itself wouldn't do much by itself, but thankfully they also implented Shop and Special Upgrades in XXL update. Pistol that allows you to hover in air while shooting, thompson that splits into two bullets after the first target it hits, shotgun that slows down target. That, and being able to edit gunstack only at checkpoints makes sure that you will create different stacks for each situation that you think of. Mind it, it has just enough depth only for lenght of this short game, but that's fine too.

It's just a shame that more of core gameplay is pretty unrefined. It does have some occasional puzzles and dynamics, but it also has some silly stuff, like when enemies spawn right in your face or just drag on.

It also has a bit more to it, with jumppad that you can throw anywhere. It's mostly used as the second jump. But sometimes you can use it to either reflect bullets nicely, though it's rare, or make enemies jump over you. But mostly, you use it to cheese challenge levels that you can unlock. Plus, vehicle stages are good fun. That unicycle.

You also unlock Serious difficulty and the second character in single-player after you beat the game. Character is same one as the second player, only some dialog changes.

It also has 2-player local multiplayer. As it's local I didn't get to try it. But it should be fun. There is cooperative where the second player can drop in and drop out in campaign anytime. And you can unlock arenas where you can shoot at each other, I think. So, coop and competetive. Yey.

But it's a pretty fine. Unrefined game with interesting idea that it goes with. Pretty good for a single walkthrough.

You know when your trying to find a fun game in a store (local game obtaining place) and you see a game at the corrnor of your eye? And then you slightly move closer to it, to eye up the cover art and scan for signs of a good game. You move closer and closer to the game making werid nosies like "ermg whats this have i found an amazing game or just another ♥♥♥♥" and you dont realize the store Clerk giving you werid looks as you stumble towards the game you have set your eyes on. But then some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ takes the game off the shelf and announces "Huh duuuuude this game is da bomb" and goes to the till and pays and leaves with the only copy of the game! And your left there all alone standing still in the middle of the store (Looking like a lost child in a busy amusement park)

Now your probably wondering wtf this has to to with the game im writing a review on? And the answer to that my friend it has absoulty nothing to do with anything in this game.

Now on to the real review:

So what does this game have on offer for such a lovely man/woman/shehulk/werewolf/gay-vampire-kid/Pony as your self? well.....

♥♥♥♥ING CYBORG FLYING ♥♥♥♥ING MONKEYS THAT SHOT BANANA BOMBS AT YOU
GIANT ♥♥♥♥ING BEETALES
♥♥♥♥ING SOME SORT OF CROSS BETWEEN THE BIG ALIEN THING FROM DUKE NUKEM AND BLU FROM BLUES CLUES
SECRETS AND THE BEST THING OF ALL TIME YOU CAN PUT YOUR GUN ONTOP OF ANOTHER GUN TO MAKE A ♥♥♥♥ YOU UNIVERSE I HAVE SIX GUNS ON TOP OF ONE GUN SUCK ON THAT!
AND MUCH MORE!

This game is god damn insane which is amazing. You get to do some of the most retareded stuff for fun.

Want to stack up to 6 guns on top of each other and shoot? Done.
Want to kill monsters 50 times your size? Done.
Want to kill 30+ monsters on the screen at once? Done.
Want to kill dinosaurs with chainsaws? Why the hell not.

It also has amazing humour and tons of secrets to find making replaying the game all the more fun.

All this crazy ♥♥♥♥ crossed with Co-op and Versus with a low price of $10 and it dropping to $.99 on sales, it is a great game to pick up.

Because six guns are better than one.
Serious Sam: Double D XLL is a bombastic, flippant, amusingly grotesque game that compensates for a lack of wit with hyperactive energy and overstatement. Patch together up to six guns, blow up killer monkeys, and travel through time to slay dinosaurs and dodge lava balls spewed from active volcanos on the way to conquering an enormous final boss. It makes no sense and, outside of the gun stacking, doesn't do anything especially novel, but Mommy's Best Games' 2D shooter is fun the whole way through. It's like an interactive coloring book made by a 10 year old obsessed with metal music.

Revived my love for the Serious Sam series.

The gameplay is non-stop fun, enjoyed along with some excellent background music.
I would describe this game as an platformer/shooter crossover, with strong emphasis on humour, unnecessarily brutal and gory violence, big aliens and big explosions. And flamethrowers.

Great game!!!!! :)

Short version: 74% (79% for the original edition)
Serious Sam Double D is what many other Contra clones strive to be: lots of action, great level design with several secrets to explore, simple but enjoyable story, decent humour, and a weapon system that is so ridiculous it is actually awesome.

Long version:
In 2011, CroTeam allowed some indie developers to freely expand upon the Serious Sam franchise. Serious Sam Double D was probably the best result: a 2D sidescrolling shooter/platformer, where your shoot, jump, shoot, use a jump pad to jump higher, and shoot some more. This game likes shooting.

This game likes shooting so much that it implemented probably the stupidest, yet coolest weapon handling system in gaming history: you can find wrench-shaped connectors that let you stack any weapon on top of each other. Want to fire a shotgun, plasma rifle, rocket launcher, grenade launcher, flamethrower, and assault rifle with a single trigger? Now you can do it.
The XXL update also added a shop system, where you can buy additional weapon mods to enhance your guns with a variety of abilities. As a drawback, this introduced money grinding.

The plot is the funny kind of stupid, taking you all over the world (the series-defining ancient Egypt, the Jurassic era, and Pompeii) battling Mental’s forces, including new enemies like kamikaze kittens or rocket-legged monkeys. (The story mode in the base game is voiceless, but the XXL edition is fully voiced now.) It’s not much, naturally, but this game is more about the fun action, just like the original series.
