“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.”

"I love collecting big guns"
Serious Sam 2 - сиквел к взрывному аркадному экшену от первого лица Serious sam:TSE,взорвавшего индустрию своим геймплеем,состоящим из тонн монстров и кучи патронов,соединяющихся в одно единое целое.
Вторая часть была холодно принята в 2005 году,т.к. каноничная жестокость и суровость превратились в мультяшное истребление рептиилиоидов,орков и роботов.Я же с этим не согласен.Сейчас перечислим то,что сделало прорыв по сравнению с первой частью.
1)Намного больше локаций.Вспомните однообразные песчанные пейзажи в TFE и более менее разнообразные Юж.Америка,Вавилон и Средневековье в TSE.Теперь оное умножилось в 10 раз.Вы сможет улицезреть цветастые джунгли,помойки ГИГАНТСКИХ размеров(в прямом смысле),заснеженные спутники Сириуса,а также побывать на одноименной планете самому.
2)НПС.В игре появились кучки френдли-нпс,настроенных на помощь вам(нет) в борьбе с ордами Ментальских прихвостней.Симбы,Зикси,Элвисы Пресли-что может быть лучше чем спасти дочку Элвиса?(Которая,правда,похожа на перекаченного Джона Сину
3)Враги.Их стало больше.ПРОСТО.БОЛЬШЕ.МЯСА.
4)Довольно прорывная графика,хоть и с уклоном в мультвселенную.
5)Секреты.Их тоже стало больше.
6)Черный юмор.Его здесь даже больше,чем локаций.
7)Нетрикса наконец-то разговаривает.=)
8)Как никак довольно интересные боссфайты Исключая Сессиля,это лучше забыть
9)Все тот же веселый ко-оп шутер,но только еще веселее.
10)Игра моего детства,самая первая игра в целом,в которую мне удалось поиграть (не считая косынку и сапера)

Для меня это всего веселый,красивый,захватывающий взрыв ностальгии.
Брать обязательно.

This game gives me a lot of childhood memories because I would play it quite a bit on my Xbox, then I find out that it is on Steam. Serious Sam 2 is a really good game with a pretty interesting storyline, in my opinion of course. It does not require too much out of your computer with system requirements but, then again if you have a pretty good gaming computer like myself, the requirements should not be much of an issue, but regardless the system requirements are not too bad so most people should be able to run the game pretty smoothly. The controls are a bit confusing at first but you get a hang of it throughout gameplay. I like the game because it has a few kicks with the humor it had to offer, whether it being when Sam spoke or the humorous gameplay itself. I rate this game 10/10 and I would totally recommend it for others to buy and play.

"Whoa its a big mechanical spider."
*Kills it fairly easily*
"Gee I hope I don't have to face that again."
*I'm taking fire from behind*
*So, I turn around.*
*Eight mechanical spiders not unlike the one I killed*

Games like these are best described in the gibs they leave, and the gunplay on offer.
Its cheap fun until you die once or twice, then it gets a bit irritating cuz you're never quite sure what you could've done to avoid damage.

Personally, this is the very best entry to this series. It offers everything the first two games had and improves everything, staying loyal to its franchise.

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 ♥♥♥♥♥♥ 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.
