Conclusion: The Xbox version of Serious Sam reminds me a lot of what we got with THPS 2X. In just one game we get the best of what is available from Serious Sam until today and, like THPS, this won’t be the last title will be see from the franchise, but just the beginning. The sequel is already being in the works for both the PC and Xbox, this time with Xbox Live support so you can take online all the serious fragfest fun. Overall, Serious Sam takes the FPS genre back to its roots.
Excerpt: Serious Sam has made two appearances on the PC. Although both games were budget priced titles, they were well-received for their fast action and great graphics. Now Serious Sam is making his way to the Xbox, and his self-titled game brings console gamers all of the action from Serious Sam and Serious Sam: The Second Encounter in a single game. The PC games were not heavy on storyline, and the tradition continues on the Xbox.
Conclusion: wisenheimer attitude. And when a console game drops from $50US to $20US not long after its release, it’s not usually an endorsement of the game’s quality. But those supposed warnings of impending gaming-mediocrity doom mean little, because Serious Sam is one seriously awesome game, with greatly Xbox-improved looks to go along with the superb gameplay that happens to translate well from the PC to Xbox, and an unbelievable amount of fun gaming packed in.
Excerpt: To be honest, if you think about the sudden success of Serious Sam on
the PC - there's not much to it. Its simple but addictive mechanics
make it a fun-filled adrenaline ride on every corner you turn and every
monster you whack. Sixty-foot monsters, 100+ percentages in health,
insane damage thresholds and weapons spammier than my e-mail account -
this is the stuff that turned first person shooters into a sport.
Excerpt: Serious Sam comes to the Xbox at a time when traditional PC first person shooters are making the transition to Microsoft's now one-year-old console system. To be quite honest, I thought I'd see titles like Serious Sam, Wolfenstein and Jedi Outcast come a lot earlier, maybe even simultaneously for the PC-like Xbox. But bringing these PC greats to a console that literally made its name on the first person shooter Halo is a smart idea.
Summary: "The Xbox version of Serious Sam also has the addition of cutscenes that were not in the PC version, these are rendered and help flow the "Story" on and add a few more laughs into the game as well." "If you can think back to the good old days of Doom when there used to be loads and loads of enemies attacking you all at once, well this is the kind of game you are going to get here. Constant barrages of very imaginative creatures going after poor old Sam.
Pros: Good graphics, Pure fun, Cool multiplayer characters
Conclusion: Pour résumer, ce jeu est un pure délire, dans tous les sens du terme, et ce sont vos pads qui vont en prendre un sacré coup, croyez-moi, c'est un jeu à ne pas prendre au sérieux, qu'il faut consommer avec modération, sous peine de se lasser assez vite, un bon petit jeu, qui pêche malheureusement par son manque de challenge, Mais à 50 € en neuf c'est une bonne affaire, d'autre jeux devraient s'inspirer de ce prix, à bon entendeur...
Conclusion: Serious Sam tar genren tillbaka i tiden, och överger taktiskt spelande samt all realism som genomsyras i de flesta spel inom genren idag – för att enbart koncentrera sig på action. Och det fungerar riktigt bra.
