Serious Sam is the best first-person shooter to ever grace this planet. Why?
Unlike Doom, there's no stupid complicated mazes.
Unlike Duke Nukem 3D, there's no ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ keycard hunts.
Unlike Quake, there's more colors than brown, black, and gray.
Unlike Unreal, there's no dumb enemy placements.
Unlike Half-Life, there's great music playing all the time.
Unlike System Shock 2, there's no needlessly complex interface.
Unlike Call of Duty, your guns are all unique.
Unlike Battlefield, there's no dumb realism that slows the game down.
If you think those qualities above makes a game great, you're wrong. Check out what Serious Sam has to offer:
-Fast-paced action to keep you on the edge of your seat.
-Huge, beautiful environments for you to immerse in.
-Loads and loads of enemies for you to take on at the same time.
-Simple yet smart level layouts that makes the best of enemies, items, weapons, secrets, and traps.
-Dynamic and wonderfully-composed music that changes based on the level of action you're facing.
-Different types of enemies to provide maximum challenge.
-Fun, unique weapons that has a purpose in any given situation.
-All you need to know is how to move and shoot to play the game.
Combine all that, and you just got yourself the recipe for the perfect game. Serious Sam Revolution is a compilation of the classic Serious Sam 1 games, The First Encounter and The Second Encounter. TFE contains 15 levels while TSE contains 12, all of them fun, massive, and action-packed.
"But isn't there already Serious Sam HD, where it is the same game with nice modern graphics?"
First of all, slap yourself for saying that. Now listen to what I have to say.
Graphics doesn't make a game good. It's how you implement it with the other aspects of the game. Fortunately for Serious Sam Revolution, its 2001 and 2002 graphics still hold up well by today's standards. The way they used the bright colors is what makes it different from HD; in some way it even looks better than HD despite being not as detailed. This is because it is specifically designed to be eye-catching instead of just having higher polygons and resolution.
Serious Sam HD also lost other cool aspects of Serious Sam Classics, such as special gravity and enemy combos. These may seem like minor changes, but it's the little things that counts.
With all that said, if you still consider Serious Sam Revolution not worth of purchase, perhaps it's time for you to reflect on yourself and your life so far to find out how you reached the conclusion that you shouldn't play this masterpiece of a game. Then buy the game and play it so that you'll realize the errors of your ways, correct yourself, and become a better person though Serious Sam.
