“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

About This Game

The iconic Serious Sam brings his trademark relentless intensity to this bigger, bolder, more colorful sequel to the classic Serious Sam: First and Second Encounters! Tasked with rescuing the universe one bullet at a time against overwhelming hordes of time traveling enemies, Serious Sam must battle through thick jungles, murky swamps, frozen tundra, and futuristic cities to bring down Mental and his vile armies. Serious Sam 2 is a shot of adrenaline to the hearts of first-person shooter fans across the world. This is serious!

Key Features:

  • Frantic Arcade-Style Action - Hold down the trigger and lay waste to a never-ending onslaught of bizarre enemies pursuing Sam from every angle and around every corner.
  • Fearsome Enemy Creatures - Take up arms against 45 outrageous enemies and 7 intimidating bosses from bomb-toting clowns and windup rhinos to zombie stockbrokers and the iconic beheaded kamikazes!
  • Spectacular Environments - Battle across more than 40 beautiful, expansive levels spread out over 7 unique environments and gain the support of the quirky native tribes.
  • Destructive Weapons - Unleash Sam’s classic arsenal with the shotgun, minigun, rocket launcher, and cannon or square off with new guns like the Klodovik. Also, for the first time ever, use the alternative fire button to lob a grenade into an oncoming crowd of monsters and what the bad guys go boom!
  • Powerful Turrets and Crazy Vehicles - Use powerful turrets to wipe out the relentless hordes of enemies and engage in heart-thumping action atop wild, mountable animals and intense, death-dealing vehicles.
  • Helpful Native NPCs - Meet different races inhabiting environments and even fight side by side against enemies, to experience an additional bit of cooperative play feeling within the single player campaign.

I want to start off by saying that I`m glad I`ve purchased this when it was on sale!
That`s how bad it is! And when Is say it is bad I`m not talking about story, because I didn`t expected a serious story-line but other things bugged me out.
Other things like the graphics of the cinematics. Even if you have best PC with best RAM and best graphic card that exist on Market ATM, and even if you play this game at ULTRA Settings (not that this have Ultra Settings because it doesn`t!) the cinematics will still look like crap. I really wonder why they didn`t give a crap about that? I mean a game that was released some years ago can`t be upgraded a bit? At least at cinematic graphics?
The graphics of actual game are quite good and i`m not complaining about those.
Another thing which really made me uninstall this game and never touch it again and this is probably
THE MAIN REASON for this thing to happen is the ammount of enemies you actually have to kill in this game just to advance to the next area or next part of story!!!
They are TONS of them!!! And I mean it!!!! TONS OVER TONS OVER TONS of enemies, where at some EARLY point of the game you just can`t keep up and you die and die and die, over and over again because your ammo is limited but hey, your enemies aren`t, so good luck killing them!!!
This game is really unbalanced when coming to enemies!!!
Haven`t played the 1st part but is probably is as worst as this one!!!
Please don`t touch this game!!! It will only leae you frustrated like it did to me!!!

Owned this game since release, have the 4 CD's it came on and box still.
It's so much better then Serious Sam 3 as it does not try to take itself serious.
In my opinion it is the best game and most fun game of the series.
Funny Secrets all over, and Absolutely gorgeous to look @ 4k too on a modern machine.
The developers of this game should not of abandoned the comedic premise this game had and followed up with a 3 like this instead of the ugly and way to serious I think I'm Duke Nukem sam from 3.
If you gotta get a Sam game and can only choose one, choose this one.

Personally, my favorite serious sam game of the bunch. Yes it's definately, well, more insane and random than the others, but I think that's what makes it good. In some ways, I agree the witches and the giant hidden poo were a stupid idea.
