Summary: Serious Sam is a Great game, I ordered this on DVD in hopes of just playing, Wrong this works with Steam, so you have to inrole and then if you need help you have to go and inrole in that phase. Their are no help books. I had seen some place that you can use controler, Not my Logitech joy stick, you have to use MS X box controler.
Summary: I've played alot of video games but I can say straight off that this has been one of the best I have ever played. Why do I say that? Well the great graphics,sound,gameplay,intense immersion and challenge aside,this is one of the few games I own that I keep coming back to play again....and AGAIN! Both of the incarnations of Serious Sam(1 & 2)are on the same high quality scale of the first person shooter genre and rate very high marks indeed.
Summary: Serious Sam: the Second Encounter (SSSE) is a very good game, but it's got one trait I had trouble with: It's not serious! Oh but the graphics are great! Croteam really deserves credit for a job well done. Sunlight, rain, and special effects are rendered very nicely in this game, and amazingly it ran smoothly even on my Pentium III system. The weapons are good too.
Seriously Fun and Difficult but married by thin performance!

Summary: Serious Sam the Second Encounter has no story, just oldskool gameplay. The graphics are nothing special, pretty neat effects, but nothing that raises the bar past unreal or quake. The sound system is pretty unique and realistic, and the music eyecandy is cool. The gameplay is fun and tough, literally hundereds of freaky and hard big enemies and you using big guns and armor at the same time in huge interesting levels with great arcitecture.
