An absurd protagonist, lots of ridiculous and carthartic-to-use guns, a metric ♥♥♥♥-ton of enemies, a big field to put them all in, and an irreverent sense of humor: it's a f*ckin' excellent combination.

Obviously, it takes a lot of ideas from DOOM, including a really annoying bone-based enemy that would be a great enemy if it had about half as much health. Same goes for those bull things. In addition, the difficulty curve gets a bit too steep near the end, but other than those issues, it's a rock-solid game from start to finish. Get it.

Here's the deal;

There's a hole in your heart. You need that vitamin D. Vitamin Duke. Then you realise that vitamin Duke is really bad for you, that it is a disappointing mess that should have been canceled a long time ago.

Discover vitamin S. Vitamin Serious. Hordes of monsters. Dumb-funny one-liners. Bloody screaming kamikaze murderers. A handheld pirate-ship-♥♥♥ cannon. Listen. Vitamin S is good for you. Trust me, try this once and you're gonna AAAA-yourself.

You'll love all of the Serious Sam games, I know you will.
