  • 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. Next Encounter is a fun romp and will last a great deal of time for the low cost with over 40 levels to test you.

  • 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.

Serious Sam: Next Encounter Review

GameSpot
9 April 2004
  • Excerpt: Serious Sam has done a lot of damage on the PC and has spent quite a few rounds of ammo on the Xbox as well. Now the PlayStation 2 and GameCube get a taste of Croteam's outrageous, ridiculously fast-paced shooter with Serious Sam: Next Encounter. That it's not actually developed by Croteam definitely puts the odds against it, though despite this handicap, and the game's poor visual fidelity, Next Encounter is able to deliver an experience that is at least a rough...

  • 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. Diese Tatsache kann zwar in den ersten Minuten viel Spaß bereiten, auf Dauer fehlt es dem Spiel jedoch an neuen Ideen und Abwechslung. Einzig, dass man jetzt in Gefährte steigen kann, bietet minimale Abwechslung zum Baller-Alltag.

  • Conclusion: Que dire ? Serious Sam : Next Encounter déçoit. Je pensais, comme bon nombre d'entre vous, que ce jeu allait être un bijou d'humour et de bourrinage, mais, en lieu et place de nos souhaits passés, on se trouve avec un jeu moyen. La durée de vie est certes convenable, mais on s'ennuie souvent dans les niveaux, et les graphismes sont indignes de ces consoles nouvelle génération.
  • Pros: Durée de vie, Humour.. parfois
  • Cons: Très laid graphiquement, Pas très jouable, Intérêt mitigé

  • 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.
