Yes, I'm not much in the FPS type games but the review makes me want to give it a try...
I'll have to convince a friend to buy it ;)

Might be worth getting that, it should be really, really cheap now and it's a great game.

Serious Sam is now on Budget - I bought it for 8.99 and am having a fantastic time playing it. Runs very well on my humble P2-350 too, which is a really pleasant surprise.

you guys :o

i am about 1/2 to 2/3 through it. If it does have a problem it is that it becomes slightly repetitive - something i found with the first one too.

That said, i haven't lost any desire to keep playing yet, and i'll be back on as soon as i get home.

Nav - what a muppet, 30!
Oh well, I'm sure he's still enjoying it

King_G - the repetitive thing - that's just started happening to me in the first one. I think it's because they do tend to hit you very early on in the game with some of the really big bad guys, and also give you the really big weaponry very early on, which at the beginning makes you feel like you're making really rapid progress, but then it becomes more of a "lets just through 200 more of these skeleton type monsters at you than you faced 5 minutes ago"...
Plus, you know that when you've killed them all off and the magic health and ammo appear, that when you pick them up, it all kicks off again............

Look at the Size of That Thing!
