Summary: Let me say I've beaten all 3 of the Serious Sam Games on PS2 and Xbox. The first one I never seemed to like that much. You know, the first one for the Xbox. It never really held my attention because I sucked at FPS games when I got it so it was one of those take-out-when-you're-bored-keep-buried-in-your-cabinet kinda games. After taking it out like twice every month at the end of the year I beat it and really didn't care for it.
Summary: Now, I'm over 13 but I'm just using this under 13 review thing because it is to much trouble to sign in...ext. Anyway, the game is really well done. The action in the game is awesome! So many aliens to kill and shoot up! The framerate is problably the best part of the game. It never slows down! No matter how many enemies are on the screen, it never slows down. Graphics are so-so. Neat multiplayer.It can have over 8 people at once online.
Summary: This game is alright,but alot of things are bad about it. First:graphics! The graphics look like they came right out of a comic book! [BAD] Second:the nosies! Ohhhh, how they make me think twice about play it again. And finally: music! The music sucks! That all I hav to say. Everything else is really cool! LOTS OF GORE! ACTION! AND MULTIPLAYER MODES! But for hard-core shoots like me, this not your game. It's to fast and it feels really short.
Summary: OK! This game does not look the best, but its very fun and controls great. And the online play is awesome! Played for hours and never got tired of it. All the online maps are great. I wish this came with a map editor like Timesplitters did. I bought this game new for only $14.99 and its worth every penny. Now if it was a $50 game then no I would not get it. I never pay $50 for a game anyway. Yes the Xbox Serious Sam 1 looks much better, but it did not have online play.
Summary: What a bad game. It's useless I can tell you now, And how on earth anyone can give this 5 stars is beyond a joke, Nothing I have played in recent times is as poor as Serious Sam. Kontrols are not good, visuals are not good, sound is not good, game plays is not good, game is not good, poor, poor, poor. Don't waste you're money, do something better with it.
Summary: The most fun you'll have with Serious Sam next encounter is as you launch the box and its contents into the nearest trash can. Then for more fun, dig the game out of the trash can and repeat the process over and over until full satisfaction is achieved.
Summary: If you enjoy playing mind-numbing, tedious, repetitive games, then serious Sam, next encounter will be right up your alley. I really wanted to like this game, but in truth, it is not so hot. Wise cracking Sam isn't remotely funny or amusing. The look of the game is unimpressive and the sound does its job, just. This is the first serious Sam type game I have played and I didn't think much of it.
Summary: I cannot believe someone gave Serious Sam Next Encounter 5 stars - it is a dreadful game. The levels maybe huge, they are huge and bland with it and where are all the enemies to shoot - hiding somewhere? - On the PC version there appears to be at times 30 to 40 creatures charging at you all at once, on this the PS2 version there appears to about 8 creatures charging at you at any one time, it really is a very poor interpretation of the PC version.
