A insane game and gets repetitive too fast

Summary: This game is insane it gets repetitive too soon. They is also four player mode too in deathmatch mode players duke it out the winner stands tall with most kills. Wave after wave monsters appear you get a lot of weapons for them like the mini-gun, rocket launcher. The controls is pretty decent for this game, some levels are colourful. Graphics: 70% Most of the monsters look good and level's is nice some big they aren't any puzzles only shooting monsters.
Summary: Someone accused this game of looking like an N64 game. Err... no. Apparently if a game uses bright colours it's instantly branded as looking rubbish. If it's not shades of black or grey, or other such dark colours, then it's not worth your time and effort, right? Wrong. While the Next Encounter is not as engrossing as it's predecessors, it is infact one of the best FPS games available for any console. Why?
Summary: You gotta admit, it took Climax Solent a lot of guts to develop a decent enough FPS that could come close to imitating the original PC/Xbox game. It's a very brainless game (shoot anything that moves) and the graphics look like an N64 game. But it's just as enjoyable as the first time you ever sat down to your keyboard to play Doom. Multiplayer is also quite good, with two-player co-op and four-player deathmatch modes, you'll be with your friends for hours on this!
Summary: Nowadays 1st person shooters can be complex things. However Serious Sam steps along. A FPS withous stealth or hi tech gadgets,this is just an all out blaster. It may be mindless and one dimensional but is is just so much fun. Although there are better FPS' out there, they all have flaws. However Serious Sam isn't flawed, it does what it sets out to do, and well. The problem is this just isn't enough to make SS a must have, but anyway its cheap and fun.
Summary: I cannot understand why people say this game is bad or garbage. Well, the graphics aren't top notch,but worser quality of graphics helps out to avoid slowdowns in game , as game throws large groups of enemies into game screen at once. Battles too, can get boring sometimes, as enemy count seems endless. But I think it's good enough to keep you playing for.
Summary: For those of you looking for a shooter on par with the likes of Metroid Prime or Timesplitters 2, this is not it. This is another Serious Same game - the 3rd in fact after the original 2 PC and XBox verions. The Cube version looks pretty good, reasonable effects and textures with lots of primary colour use. Where the game really delivers is gameplay of course.
Summary: When I brought my Nintendo Gamecube I never thought I would see the daywhen I would get to play a game like serious sam next encounter. Itsrubbish that’s all I can say. I look forward to the release of CaponsResident Evil 4, now that is looking tasty.
Summary: I am a big fan of the First Person Shooter and this ‘Serious Sam: Next Encounter’ don’t qualify. It’s awful, it’s really bad!!! This game looks so ugly! It really does. You don’t have to take my word for it, go and look on the internet. The game plays slow, why? It’s supposed to be chaotic, but it isn’t? What went wrong with Serious Sam: Next Encounter??? – If you want Serious Sam, then check out the original on PC version, as that is as good as it got.
