Serious Sam: Next Encounter – Review

GameCritics.com
29 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Judging by the half-assed box cover art, budget price, and banal title ("Next Encounter?" That's honestly the best they could come up with?), Serious Sam: Next Encounter is clearly a game that no one, not even publisher Global Star Software, wanted. If that's true, then does that make this the review that no one wants to read?

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: There is a fairly big arsenal of weapons to choose from. Everything from shotguns to rocket launchers is usable in all the game modes. The aiming system is pretty forgiving as most of the time your cursor doesn’t need to be aimed directly on the enemies to get a direct kill. It’s actually a good thing that the aiming system is forgiving because you’ll face simultaneous enemy attacks from all directions during the single player game.

  • Summary: Almost nothing was expected of Serious Sam: Next Encounter however the game turned out to be a real gem. If you can overlook the very average graphics and sound then you will find a highly enjoyable title, and at a budget price too!

Serious Sam - Next Encounter (ps2)

GBase
11 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Mit Serious Sam: Next Encounter erhält man den wohl stupidesten und simpelsten Ego-Shooter, wobei gerade dies wieder Spass macht. Ich lege Serious Sam gerne für ein Spielchen für zwischendurch ein, um durch Levels zu rennen und zig Feinde über den Haufen zu schiessen, ohne viel überlegen zu müssen. Auf die Dauer wird es aber eintönig, da die Abwechslung klar zu kurz kommt. Da können auch die verschiedenen Fahrzuge nicht mehr viel retten.

  • Excerpt: Un vaisseau amiral d'origine Sirienne émet d'étranges signaux, tout droit issus du passé. Le seul homme bien doté et à l'arsenal suffisamment large et varié pour se lancer dans l'aventure c'est Serious Sam !
