Well, I put 30 hours Into the game. So, might as well make a review for It finally!
Serious Sam Classics: Revolution Is a game pack. That reminds me an awful lot of Serious Sam for the Xbox. As It even had The First, and Second Encounters merged Into one big fantastic gore fest.
Now I've been playing Serious Sam since The First Encounter way back, and I haven't stopped playing since then . Sadly I've been living a depressing life, and thanks to Sam he has been there for me, to ease the pain. I'll never regret how much how this game puts me in good spirits even if it's for just short bursts.
Anyways, back to this seriously awesome pack of seriousness. Which like I stated at the start of this review. The first two encounters are included, but now something new is invading the this seriously awesome world. Croteam are implementing a third campaign, which Is still not playable yet. Though since the game Is still In Early Access. Hopefully soon It'll be included. Now I have encountered some bugs and problems with It, but hopefully It'll take notice and Croteam It will get fixed real soon.
Anyways, let's talk about the games contents... shall we?
==[Serious Sam - The First Encounter] ==
So, the game actually doesn't start with much of a story, If you didn't skip the opening credits that Is. The game takes place In Egypt, 3000 B.C. (As Serious Sam states In Serious Sam 3: BFE, a prequel to SS:TFE).
At the start of the game, before the bloodbath really sets in. You get to meet your little AI friend "Netrica". (Or her nickname Nettle, In Serious Sam 2) Though In this review, we'll be calling her Nettie for now. Hehe,She's a AI computer planted Into Sam's brain, and she's Sam's friend, and your guide throughout the experience. Nettle will give you useful tips on things such as the history on the area you're In, Information on the aliens you'll be encountering, etc. She's quite useful, and I recommend reading what she says when you click on your right mouse button.
So, some may say. The point of the game Is just shoot, go to the next arena, and shoot more again. Or kill anything that moves. Nope, It's not only that, but the open areas are beautiful and wide. And there's many secrets to discover In each one If your curious enough to take a treasure hunt. Now for the AI on the monsters, the AI Is just ment to be stupid, really. As the monsters are just pretty mindless, so what's the point of having good AI? Now for the graphics. The graphics were beautiful and fantastic back In 2001. The reflections and many effects the game Is just beautiful. The Serious Engine Is perfectly made, and It was a marvel for It's time."
==[Serious Sam - The Second Encounter]==
Alright! Now to move onto Serious Sam: The Second Encounter.
Now, this one Is the cartoons variation of the Serious Sam games. Though that's what I kind of love about the games, the cartoon like vibe and humor! But seriously... Who doesn't?
So, at the ending of Serious Sam: The First Encounter. The Croteam Developers make a rather funny appearance In the opening Intro. Flying flying In rollercoaster like snake of crates, and they accidently smash Into the Sirian UFO that Sam Is In. Sam Is a little enraged by this, and the UFO crashes Into the mountains of South America. Sam thought he'd be In Egypt again, but he was wrong.
Now, as you might now know. the Serious Sam games have always been known for the Egypt setting. Which I'm pretty sure a lot of gamers got sick of. This was a chance for Croteam to do something else other blast away aliens near towering pyramids. This time however you get some new toys to add to Sams collection. A Sniper Rifle, Flamethrower and Chainsaw. Now, you get to mutilate the invasion with even more "class". Such as the Demons, chainsaw wielding pumpkin heads, and many other deranged baddies. Which just makes the game even more Awesome! Plus your little friend Netrica Is back! And ready to give you more Info!
The developers of Serious Sam Classics: Revolution are doing a great job on this! They may need to still work on some bugs, but Croteam is doing a great job altogether though!
And well, that's the end of this review. I wanna thank Croteam for creating this beautifully articulated and well crafted game. Also for this game helping me through the rough times in my life.
I my yellow shades towards you Croteam. For making me the guy I am today . The fact they care even for their work in the past. As this pack makes the originals live long and unformatted. Again, Thank you Croteam, and I hope you'll be making Serious Sam games 'till the day you croak.
