  • Summary: Serious Sam Next Encounter is a budget game at a budget price - it provides no nonsense simple and fun gameplay. Unfortunately in a time when people focus more on graphical ability and the "cool" factor of games these simple yet effective games get lost in the back of game stores gathering dust.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It might be true that everything up until you unload your first round of ammo is borderline functional, but you don't buy a game for glitzy and technically impressive options screens. Serious Sam: Next Encounter is yet more goodness that gameplay sticklers would do well to check out.

  • Summary: This is the longest I have ever held down the R Button.
  • Pros: $20: I say yea., Fast fast fast., Fun multiplayer, Insane amounts of wacky enemies on-screen
  • Cons: Feels like you’re playing the first level over and over., Gets really old really fast., Giant areas are boring to walk through with nothing in them.

  • Conclusion: Serious Sam Next Encounter'll give you plenty of thrills and even the occasional scare, but it certainly won't be entering anyone's all-time top ten. If you play a lot of multiplayer games, give it a try; there aren't many more entertaining 4-player games on Gamecube.
  • Pros: Fast, frantic action., Loads of enemies., Lots of bang for your buck., Massive levels., Excellent multiplayer., It's a, challenge on the higher difficulty settings., It's cheap.
  • Cons: It's repetitive as heck.

  • Conclusion: Schon vor der Veröffentlichung des Spiel war klar, wie das Gameplay in Serious Sam: Next Encounter aussehen wird: Kompromisloses Ballern. Dies hat man auch im neuesten Ableger beibehalten.

  • Excerpt: Voilà déjà belle lurette que le gars Sam est venu secouer les puces des joueurs PC et, plus tard, Xbox. Ce n'est qu'assez tardivement donc que les consoles de Sony et Nintendo voient débarquer chez elles ce grand malade. Une attente pas très justifiée au regard du résultat peu brillant.
