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: 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.
Worthy title, budget price makes it all the better

Summary: If you have twenty bucks and you want to kill an afternoon, look no further than Serious Sam: The Next Encounter. The variety of guns gives you plenty of choices for how you'd like to annihilate the swarms of enemies coming at you from everywhere. I especially like the co-op multiplayer, and also the silly characters you can play as. Most of the enemies die in one or two shots, but the sheer number of them makes the gameplay fast-paced and intense.
Summary: This game is an instant classic. I'll bet no one on here never play it. Sam is amazing. I'll bet I'm the only one here who found the hidden sword. The guns are fun, but on top the huge building in the Metro level you find a sword (behind the crate nearest the edge). Hack and slash all night baby. This opens up the game to the next level. Forget everything else, you'll be addicted to this. Online mode is pretty good. I like the music on the dashboard. Thumbs up, way up.
Summary: Well it's no looker, but when you look at the huge levels, you can see where all the texture memory went, for a FPS on a console this game is huge. I was pratically worn out playing it. It can get a bit repetative if you go for a 2 hour stint, especially if you replay on hard to get the medals and bonus features, and there's lots of bonuses to go for.
Summary: Serious Sam does it again, this being the 3rd installment in the SS series. I just had to get it for my PSX2 and its a Total Blast, new weapons and driveable vehicles. With 8 player deathmatch online, no online fees all for 20 bucks this game rocks and is true to form as always with the wisecrackin Sam and tons of enemies to destory while finding secrets and cool stuff along the way.
Summary: There are times when you want to creep around in a Splinter Cell style, times when you want to direct your assault teams to take out a machine gun post, and then there is the odd occasion when ALL you want to do is shoot as many enemies as possible using a wide variety of weapons. This is the time for Serious Sam - Next Encounter. There is no pretence of storyline, just get from A to B via K,I,L,L. I love it!
Summary: A brilliant game much like the originals this game is thrilling and addictive now i have the whole series. This game has a good selection of weapons and enemies whilst being challenging at the same time the vehicles are brilliant and i like the multiplayer mode it keppes up with serious sam 1 and 2 and serious sam advance and carrys on the great 4 and a half star rating and the graphics are simply brilliant By Stephen Hunt From Reading,Berkshire united kingdom
