Early Access Review
Having played all the Serious Sam games (spin-offs included) I must say that this has to be the best game in the series. Serious Sam Classics: Revolution features the both original Serious Sam games in one great pack. Not only that, they updated the resolution and added better co-op and multiplayer support as well as Steam Workshop. There's no reason to skip this game if you like old school FPS games!

Early Access Review
Let's call this one the "Definitive Edition" of the Classics, both being fused into one experience while using Steamworks and the Workshop, just like the HD Encounters and BFE does.

Refine the netcode a little, give it a little bit of bugfixing here and there (still getting random crashes occasionally), add the remaining campaign to it and it's good to go.

There is a lot of people who don't get this genre. However it's probably one the best satirical game series ever! It's not Duke Nukem, it's not Blatzkowitz it's Serious Sam!

Early Access Review
Serious Sam is a classic game. It's not arguable. This game just made it a whole lot more kickass.
In the mid 2000's, I remember playing this on a burned CD on our very bad computer and having a blast on the first level.
Last night, almost 10 years later, for $2.00 me and my friend pulled the best all nighter in history. Serious Sam holds a test of time. Not only for being a 14 year game and looking like a game that came out 6 or 7 years ago, but the fluid FPS action is something we just don't see anymore. In the early FPS such as DOOM, Duke Nukem, and Serious Sam, we see this fluid gameplay at runs at 60 always and has a perfect balance of insanity and fun. Not to mention this game has some of the best box art ever, and we're smooth sailing.

Pros.
+Amazing Gameplay
+Gory
+Good weapon choices
+CO-OP! FINALLY
+Deathmatch, feels a bit like Quake Live, but we have it.
+Survival.

Cons
- Almost no story unless you read into it
- Dated
- Not many online games

Gameplay: 9/10. Best fast paced game I've played in a while
Graphics: 6/10. Dated, but if you get the HD version, they look good.

Overall 8/10. I have to warn you though, if graphics are a niche for you, do not get this version. You won't have co-op or deathmatch and an added bonus of online survival, but the graphics are far more improved. Overall, this is a steal, getting 2 good games for the price of one. The devs really knocked it out of the park.
