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.”

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!

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 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.)

The Good:
  • Amazing graphics for a 2005 game with many lush, colourful environments.
  • Extremely optimized engine with very low system requirements. This game runs at 200 fps on maximum settings on a computer that was mid-range in 2007 and looks incredibly pleasant.

The Bad:
  • All of the jokes and dialogue feels taken out of a bad kids' cartoon. Even the youngest audience would groan and cringe ant the horrible plot, cutscenes and Sam's one liners. The other Serious Sam games were much more tactful in their approach to humor.
  • Invisible walls everywhere, discouraging exploration. Feels like a corridor shooter.
  • The gunplay fees terrible. There is no knockback, recoil or stagger. For most of the guns, you wouldn't be able to tell they're firing if you muted the sound. his is unforgivable for a game where 99% of the gameplay is shooting.
  • Boring secrets containing mostly "treasure" that gives point boosts.
  • Non-scaling HUD that looks pixelated on PC resolutions.
  • Consolized menus with excessive scrolling and bizarre mouse lag.
  • There are no cutscenes in co-op, so the story makes zero sense with players being warped from place to place. I'm not sure if this is a pro or con, since the cutscenes are universally cringeworthy.


This is the worst game in the series, and it's metacritic rating is much higher than it deserves. Don't buy it even on sale unless you have a friend to co-op with.

***Warning: My reviews are biased!***

Completed: No
Played Using: Mouse/Keyboard
Initial Expectations: Played Serious Sam 3 first and found it boringly repetitive. Expected similar.

Opinion:
This game is a little more amusing then the 3rd game which seemed to focus more on its pretty graphics. In the end it still is just fun for reckless killing and can be challenging. It gets really repetitve and the story is boring.

Hello there everyone. As I am writing a negative review this time, I would like to be serious SAM for a change, and not joke around this time around.

This game has good---EXCELLENT graphics, I must admit, and runs very well on my PC. However, there are a few major downsides I would like to point out.

1. Turning controls. This game is different then most FPS games in a regard, because instead of automaticaly turning around when you move your mouse, there are 2 specific buttons you press to turn your view from right to left. I personally hate it. I am so used to playing other auto-turn games like tf2, that this way of gameplay is super difficult for me. I set the 2 buttons to mouse 4 and mouse 5 to make this easier, but it's still incredibly wierd. Whevever I start getting the hang of it and go "Oh, this is easy enough" and go play some other fps game, by the time I come back I'm completely lost again. arrgh.....I'm a pirate.

2. No trading cards and badges. Really now? Please.

3. You can switch to 3rd person mode, but the shooter is all messed up and I can't aim. So I am forced to stay fp.

Other than these, nothing else so far. 5/10

Serious Sam 2 is very bad. It's very glitchy, unbalanced, repetitive, and most of all, not fun. Serious Sam 3 and the first Serious Sam might be worth your time, but don't bother with this one. Not even for a dollar.

I love Serious Sam, but give this a miss. Not the same feeling of fun as 1st, 2nd and BFE. Looks different and plays different to the enjoyable classics.
