The greatest FPS made for its time. If not for its outdated graphics, it should receive many trophies for its other up to par features, such as the huge arsenal of weapons made available for die-hard FPS fans who get vexed by the tedium of wielding the same weapon or switching between two different weapons. It's an FPS game that delivers with great humor and an interesting story line that complements the game's aesthetically appeasing graphic designs of ancient Egyptian and Mesopatemian obelisks, pyramids, and statues. The monsters that you fight are so hilarious and unique that you'll begin to feel like you're sucked into a vortex and transfered into a world where everything is strange and creepy. The game evinces the concept of antiquity and alien technology interlaying one another in a historic period (Most likely around 2000BC to 200 BC) in ancient Egypt and Mesopotemia. The feeling of being stuck in an antiquated period fighting formidable technologically advanced robots brews up a unique and interesting game that absorbs you deep into the game. I guarantee that you will not want to stop playing this game after you finish the first level. It's the type of game that elevates your dopamine levels and excites you to the max. BUY this game if you wish to be entertained and have a couple of laughs now.

So, I've seen many reviews of NEGAIVITY! HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE THIS GAME? The enemies MAY be repetetive the first three levels, then they get unique. The Harpys, evil chicken women who shoot blue fireballs at you from the air, then become ♥♥♥♥♥♥ enough to land. The Werebulls, where you have to sidestep and shoot with massive firepower. The Arachnoids, who you can use to kill other enemies, because they have anger issues. The Lava Golems, who spawn tiny versions of themselves depending on size. The HILARITY OF THE HUMOR IN THE GAME AND SERIOUS SAM'S WISECRACKING ADDITUDE TOWARDS THE BEHEADED KHAMIKAZIES ("Over here! You stupid headless freaks!" - Serious Sam)

Gameplay repetettive? Only if you don't look for the secrets and the ways not to get hurt while fighting ten million enemies!

EPIC GAME!!!! DEFINITLY RECOMMEND!

I've played this game since before Steam was thought of, and it's the best game I've ever played, next to Half-Life.
