Summary: Behind the worst cover in Xbox history lies one of its best games. Serious Sam is nearly perfect. It has genuine humour, and the gameplay is infinitely fun. You get an overwhelming sense of satisfaction blasting wave after wave of different aliens and monsters, making good use of all the different weapons you come across and, if you take the time to look around, discovering amusing secrets.
Excerpt: "...them. I had never played a serious sam game before this was released on xbox, because my pc really is that bad. So this was new territory, but like any real gamer, i had done my research beforehand and knew what to expect from the game. This is a back to basics fps. No fancy rag doll physics, or gravity guns, or even intelligent AI. What you get hear is pure fragging non stop. Enemies range from insane bomb heads to giant monsters that span ...
Summary: OK! it maybe anime but it is certainly one of the best games i have played! i just finished completing it and its great. The bosses are easily killed with the right weapon,and the strange and dangerous creatures add effect and keep you on your feet.It may be repetative but its still a good game all the way through.
Excerpt: "...then begin your quest as Serious Sam –the (hopefully) saviour of the galaxy! You will now then be whisked off to ancient places to begin your quest for glory! Overall the controls are easy to use so you should get used to the game pretty quickly. There is a large array of weapons available, 14 in total (including a chainsaw, the XM214-A Minigun, XPML21 Rocket Launcher, Sniper Rifle, Laser gun etc). My favourite is the Minigun. Bonus objects to ...

Summary: In this game, you start off shooting some monster things and then you think its an average game. But then you think that this game is rubbish compared to other great games like Halo etc. The problems are: * There is no gun satisfaction at all. * Its the most repetitive game ever. * It all looks the same. * The Bosses are near impossible to defeat. * It gets annoying If you want a monster shooter than I suggest getting a game called painkiler for the PC.

Summary: 80% shooting 10% traps 10% getting keys This games great for 5 - 10 years old kids. I reccomend renting it first. All you do is go shoot shoot shoot.........push switch, shoot......find key, put it in slot, shoot shoot........... at these running alians (you also get a profile for your enemy such as weaknesses and what kind they are). You can turn the blood to green or red(I don't know if you can turn the blood of).
Excerpt: "...are the same slots in Serious Sam as they are in Doom - Fists, Pistol, Shot-gun, Machine Gun, Rocket launcher. The last weapon you'll pick up is a cannon - firing huge cannon balls at even huger enemies. The size of what you are fighting is only bettered by the number you are fighting. Headless suicide bombers run at you in swarms - 30 at a time. Therein lies the fun - shooting many things. If this doesn't sound like fun you won't enjoy the game. ...
Summary: I didn't think you could go wrong with a 'Duke Nuke'em' cloned FPS and at first this game fits the bill. Frantic, tongue-in-cheek mayhem, outsized weapons and ridiculous beasts flying at you from all angles. I blasted my way through an Egyptian landscape, got on my flying surfboard and off I went...to another Egyptian landscape, and another, and another - with the same ridiculous beasts and the same buildings and catacombs.
Summary: This is a game that does not pretend to be anything that it's not. Shot anything that moves. Or that don't. Oh, and there's sort of a plot too. A lot of different guns, a LOT of different bad, eh, things, and after a while you figure out which gun goes with what creature. Ok, so I got a bit tired of the mad skeleton cows towards the end, but I still had a smile on my face when I got to the end, which took me about the same time that it took to get through Halo.
Summary: Superbly addictive old skool style gameplay (FPS for points, and points mean extra lives!), that offers a great challenge from a game that doesn't take itself seriously (despite the name!). Croteam were kind enough to give us Xbox owners BOTH Serious Sam games rolled into one, which means the game spans a massive 36 (!) levels, many of which are impressively large, pack lots of playtime.
