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 pissed 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.

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.

A beautifully crafted, gorgeous looking and extremely entertaining game to play, not only that but it also has a huge variety of levels, enemies and weapons. The game also has an awesome soundtrack, which makes you turn the volume all the way up. If you're an old Serious Sam games fan and didn't played this game because of how it looks, well, you missed quite a lot. This game is made to not be taken serious ( which is ironical ), it has a lot of cheesy humor and cutscene videos, you can adapt to the whole humor of the game through little bit of gameplay, and it's one of the reasons i love Croteam, they can mix that stuff together into one amazing thing. It's more arcadey ( especially on low difficulty levels ) than other SS games, yet it's still tons of fun. This is one of the most played games of my childhood, and i still play it with huge enjoyment over and over again. If this ever get an HD remake ( it already looks great with some console variables tweaks ) i will 100% buy it. I would recommend it for people which don't take games seriously while having huge enjoyment out of them. New SS fans ( who played only SS:BFE ) might get freaked out by it, but people which played all Croteam SS games might get a lot of fun.

I got killed by a door twice. They are more dangerous than monsters. Be wary of evil doors. They will kill you.

I ate a bowl of soup and blew up a house afterward, followed by catching some natives in the 'act'...

10/10 would do it again (not real rating)

Sorry, had to throw that out there... So far, the game seems great. For it's time, it's great graphics, and it's my perfect blend for a run-n-gun game : lots of violence with a mix of comedy... and lots of reasons to sidetrack.

Definetly worth the 10$ this is worth so far, and i'm only on level 4 of the game (though I got this game for 99 cents, only double the price of my common homecooked meal, so that's a bonus on my end... dont know about the people who have to spend 5 dollars on a compact french meal, though...)

on my rating though... 8/10 is my real rating (the game engine's physics throw it off, you will rage about 50 dozen times trying to get one of the secrets on the 4th bloody level.)

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.

With vibrant and colorful graphics, a wide variety of weapons, enemies and environments, online co-op and histerically awful (in a good way) cutscenes, Serious Sam 2 is a blast to play through, and a worthwhile entry in the Serious Sam series.

While combat and enemy encounters feel more shallow than they do in other entries in the series and some of the boss fights are pretty weak, new additions like vehicles and grenades help breathe new life into the gameplay, and keep it varied.

Good game, definitely worth playing. Highly Recommend!

Serious Sam 2 doesn't take itself seriously on the surface, but as a hardcore fan of tough slaughterfest FPS bullet/melee hell gameplay that this franchise is known for, I give this game a serious thumbs up.

I am by no means an inexperienced player so trust me, if I say a game is hard it's probably tougher than what you'd expect and SS2 is surprisingly difficult which is a refreshing revamp of the series that delivers exactly what real fans wanted. Normal in SS2 feels more like hard in SS1 a lot of the time and the tricks up the dev's sleeves perform nicely and will have you strategizing more than shooting on various occasions.

The weapons have a pleasant, balanced feel to them that encourages you to get creative and never have an ultimate go-to. Yes some weapons are of course better for certain situations than others, but seldom will you feel like you'd be screwed if you didn't have ammo for a specific weapon. The Devs are good about giving you the ammo you need, and you see ammo packs, large health and powerups much more often in this installation of the series making way for big fights equally more often.

Enemies are what you'd expect, but there's some awesome additions especially ranged enemies. In the first game, most of the ranged attacks were projectiles but in SS2 there's more rockets and more bullets to force you to kill fast, fast fast and prioritize targets effectively if you want to stay alive for long. Also, there's more strategy involved in taking down enemies this time around. One of the first enemies has a shield that it'll drop when you shoot it, but I'm pretty sure making contact while before it drops the shield does more damage. I'm not positive about that though. Either way, more strategy difficulty and satisfaction.

The environments are pretty epic and vary just enough to keep you happy without getting overly obnoxious. There's moments where you say "Damn, this game had amazing graphics for it's time" and it did, not only that, but the engine is super optimized. I have a pretty aweful system and I'm very impressed by how well I can run the game.

Serious Sam 2 has stupid humor that made me laugh and facepalm simultaniously. You have to not take it seriously, and with the massive amount of bloodshed that goes into this game, the comic style of the game and it's visual design is commendable on the part of the Dev's. I will say that I prefered the darker style of SS1 but where this game lacks in any area for me it makes up for in gameplay. The gameplay is just awesome.

This game is satisfyingly challenging, fun, surprisingly not repetetive for the very basic concept behind it, and goes down in my book as a must-have for fans of games like oldschool doom, painkiller, and other doom clones including serious sam 1.

I'd pay $20 for this game, and I paid $10. Maybe I'm a sucker for games like these, but if I am then I gladly sucked this game right up and I give this a total of 7/10. Not bad for a game that's literally like: Here's baddies, here's gun, here's excuse oops I mean story, go kill. *Pounds chest*.
