Reviews

“Sam II's wild, random charm makes for a twisted Duke Nukem meets Alice in Wonderland sort of roller coaster ride-a perfect change of pace from the scads of grim 'n' gritty shooters steeped in WWII war zones and dystopian postapocalyptic futures.”
A – 1UP

“Croteam has succeeded on all fronts delivering a sequel that lives up to our steep expectations.”
8.5/10 – Worth Playing

“Fans of old school shooters will definitely find the challenge and excitement level are very high here.”
8.2/10 – IGN

Serious Sam 2 is the third part of the main series of the Serious Sam games, but technically it is the 'newest' part in the continuity.

This is a great game.

Back in 2005 when the game originally came out, it made mayor strides in comparison to the first two games. Many dislike where it went, but I really enjoy the outcome of the game.
The graphics are cartoonish and very bright and really make a difference to the earlier titles and the chosen music and sound assets are pretty awesome. Just the the music of some levels is worth the money. And the cutscenes? Those are pretty yanky but also pretty hilarious, although they suffer a bit from pretty high compression artifacts.
The gameplay has not really changed fro the earlier titles. You come to an area, doors close, you slauther a bunch of enemies and just continue to the next section. It might sound boring, but the level design really hides those 'grindy' parts.
The arsenal is also pretty much the same as in 'The First Encounter' or 'The Second Encounter', just updated and added some cool twists (exploding birds, hand grenades).

So all in all, if you like the previous titles and like games of this genre you might like this one too.

So many years I don't play this classic

Then, after Steam finished the download... Clicked on Play and boom! Desktop Crash, log.files, no ini anywhere. Went to God google to search for my issue, no success. Tried to create an ini from the Demo I had stored so long ago, didn't work too. Got full mad-stressed, turned off the PC...

My GF called, I was so ♥♥♥♥ed that I even accepted to go out with her, but she was like "Heeey, wtf is wrong with you? that angry face of yours is drivin' me nuts,bla bla bla", so we had a fight with tons of yells and that kinda stuff you rarelly see at the mall. Everyone was watching, meanwhile my head was on "Why the heck a high end PC can't run a great clasic?". I ignored her, then she broke with me...

My day was just gettin' so worse when a Dog attempted to bite me, yet I came home safely... I turned on my pc, get on my Steam... I didn't wanted to play anything else, i was just like "sigh, I want to pew pew", clicked play and... The game opens smoothly like there where no errors in the past. Now i'm happy!.

10/10 --- I was tired of that crazy girl tho.

I was hoping Steam would have Serious Sam 2 soon. This is my favorite one by far. It's a lot more... 'cartooney' than the rest, but that's why I like it.

While the tone was set more ridiculous for this sequel, let's be honest, it's sort of a Zelda 2 syndrome where the game only had two games in the series and the whole tone of it wasn't really established. For those saying that Serious Sam 2 was a bad game because of its tone, lighten up. This was honestly a fun game, and although it's not my favorite entry in the series, it still has charm, if not for the joke towards Duke Nukem Forever's development time.

Bought it a few days ago, installed it three times, doesn't work. At least not for me. I run windows 7 64bits and it should work.
I run Sam2, even twice. The system says its running but there no screen, not even an indication that it's visually playing the game. I can hear my PC growling and in task manager it's stated that it's running twice, but its not in the programs. A waste of money if you ask me.
What the hell happened? I see that other people can run it fine.
And don't come to me with crap that my videocard is broken because I play other games too and those games are not complaining...
Normally I like mediocre games, don't care about graphics, as long it's entertaining. I wanted to use this game for one of my streams, but nope, doesn't work. Very sad, because Serious Sam is a great game genre.
Now I have to test the other Serious Sam titles if they come with the same ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that they don't run properly.
AND I AM FORCED to shut down my PC because I can't stop the proces. Not even in taskmanager, as if it's completely frozen. Which it is, because it doesn't change in memory usage.
I even tried to run it offline with compatibility modus. No budge... I am done with this trying...

Serious Sam II is a joke...a very bad one. Seriously, the humor is veeeeery bad and is kind of the main point of the game.
Just past this one, absolutly not a good title in the franchise. Trust me, do you a favor, go for the first and second encounter, then directly to SS3.
