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
