Serious Sam 2 PC Game Review


Serious Sam II (or Serious Sam 2) is a science fiction first-person shooter video game released for the PC and Xbox and the sequel to the 2002 computer game Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, making it the third game in the Serious Sam series. It was designed and developed by Croteam and was released on October 11, 2005. The game was initially published by 2K Games, a Take-Two Interactive subsidiary. The game was later made available on Steam on January 31, 2012. While the game was originally released only for Windows and the Xbox, a Linux version of the game client and the game’s content editor, Serious Editor 2, was later released and is in beta.

In the single-player campaign, the player assumes the role of hero Sam “Serious” Stone in his adventures against the forces of the extraterrestrial overlord, “Mental”, who seeks to destroy humanity. Taking place after the events of Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, Sam travels through various worlds collecting parts of a medallion in an effort to defeat Mental. He is guided by the Sirian Great Council and receives sporadic aid from the natives of the worlds he visits. The multiplayer mode includes online co-op and deathmatch, the latter having been introduced in a patch. A 4.5/5.0 was awarded to Serious Sam by Computer Gaming World, though overall the game received moderate praise from the media, earning an average of 75% on Game Rankings.

Croteam simultaneously developed Serious Engine 2, the successor to their previous game engine, Serious Engine, for use in the game, and the engine is capable of many features of other advanced game engines of the time including high dynamic range rendering and light bloom. The engine supports integration with both Xfire and GameSpy Arcade for multiplayer match finding. Serious Sam II is the only game so far to use the proprietary engine, though the Serious Engine II is available for licensing.

  1. The game is also very well optimized and has some catchy songs. And although the tone is very weird and some of the jokes dont work at times, it's still nice to see a game with a cartoony style.

  2. this game was often a chore on the xbox,. the game only has a handful of memorable/balanced levels. i played through it once and that was enough for me. the first and second encounters are games that i come back to regularly! a perfect fps in my opinion, almost on par with doom.

  3. I actually do just fine on the Xbox. Haven't beat the game on serious difficulty yet, but I feel fine playing normal difficulty

  4. More game developers should smoke weed before coming up with ideas for their games

    Because you get masterpieces like this

  5. I'm surprised at how amazing this game looks for 2005. I wonder how it ran on machines back then..

  6. tbh, I think it might be favortie, despite the bullshit flying enemies, and the combat spawning going on way too long, it feels the most balanced. The shotgun actually feels like its being used.

  7. Ludicrous review, I loved this game more than the previous two and I played those games a thousand times!

  8. How were the encounters dark and gritty? I don't exactly remember the part where serious sam exclaims about playing hot potato after finding a grenade launcher falling into the heavy rain category.

  9. DUDE i finished hsi game on my cousins Xbox that one with 4 controllers :DD that was insanely hard to point target and move around but i finished it:DDD it was damn good experience!!

  10. This was probably the most fun Serious Sam Game. I rebought it on steam, and it used to work, but for some reason, now it doesn't.

  11. I didn't like new art style, (Not because It's bad) and It was certainly a pain in the ass on xbox. I always thought It was harder than SS FE/SE.

    Didn't feel like a SS game to me.

  12. poor bastard raises his hand Yeah I played the entire campaign solo on Xbox, and it was fucking bullshit. I don't even know why I just didn't switch to PC, because the life/checkpoint system is horrid and… well… it's a fast paced FPS on a console. Looked very good tho.

  13. I love Sam in this game and his voice, the girl is also fun it's stuck in my head how she mentions secrets when you find them. I keep saying my own in other games when I find a secret.
    The levels are some of the best I have ever seen. It felt like Rayman 3 again with the details and massive scale to everything. I just stared into the backgrounds all the time except the china level and the jungle city.
    The swamp has amazing large trees with big branches and it feels incredibly massive while at the same time enclosed along with the music when no enemies are around makes it so wonderful.
    The hell level has the towers made our of the mountains and a hole of beaming light in the clouds and the sound of lava running down rivers of floating rocks.
    The medieval level is amazing from the get go as you start on a castle on the side of a massive cliff with smaller islands floating in the sky.
    It's ironic that the modern open world shooting games with open skies and fields feel a lot smaller and enclosed compared to these levels with the entire sky and surroundings covered by trees, clouds and floating islands. But here everything is of massive scale

    And it really is a wacky game with the shotgun being a multi barrel shotgun that spins after each shot and a parrot with a bomb.
    The sound effect are memorable too and that is important for any good fps game otherwise it sucks.

    But the secrets are really the bread n butter of this game and I hate that you talk about the brain gun in Turok 2 as mandatory to mention but doesn't even mention the easter eggs in almost every level. Some are simple hidden treasure or armor but others are hilarious.
    Secret gay wedding.
    Secret Duke's skeleton with a rocket up his ass.
    Secret football crocodile.
    Secret fake health pack. "MY GOD, HE SURE HAD ME FOOLED"
    Secret football fans clubb room.
    Secret Naughty bush.
    Don't feed the monkey!.
    Portals leading to other places or gives you something when you go through.
    A boxing glove killing a giant zombie like in the original Serious Sam.
    They are just too plenty and make for a fun chuckle or laugh and even stand out even for this game

  14. Damn, this game look like one of those unity games where the devs just download the whole unity store and slap all that shit into the scene for good measure.

  15. It was my first Serious Sam game & I loved it. Cheeky humor, gorgeous graphics, variety in levels, enemies & weapons, coupled with insane & satisfying shooting were just a perfect combination for me. After that I played other games in the series but was disappointed with the lack of variety in them, although they were fun games. I guess the internet wasn't there back then to influence my opinion. The more time passes the more I adore this game. The passion, the content, the variety, the difficulty – they just don't make games like these any more. Not even SS3..

  16. I see why this wasn't included in the 360 collection….it doesn't look that….serious.

  17. This is my favorite Serious Sam game. I can't take the first game seriously; it's so silly and the monster designs look like a child drew them. I like how the series embraced it's ridiculousness.

  18. "lulz I'm leik a 12 yr ol cod fan an ss2 sux cuz cartoon gfx 2/10 lulz get rekt fag ss3 is bezt ss gaem" Please stop this, like, now.

  19. I really enjoy TFE and TSE. But i never beat them in single player..only in coop. I enjoy Serious Sam 2 alot more than these two,because i'm a type of person who love to enjoy the game and not someone who look up for challenges. The thing that i like about SS2 more than the classic version is you get to see what you will not see in real life and the enemy doesn't stay the same. TFE and TSE is the same too,but the enemies will stay the same from first level to the last level and the only thing that changes is how hard it will be.

    But playing SS2 is like playing adventure game,you go from planet to planet to collect the medallion and you will get to see different types of enemies,places and atmospheres. Not to mention the soundtrack is epic as hell too. 10/10 worth to buy.

  20. Why are you deleting my comments? If you arent then its youtubes fault, but if you are, dick move dude
