Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter


Serious Sam got its start back in 2001 by enticing PC gamers with a cheap price tag and strong visuals, hooking them in with frantic arcade-style shooting that even then was a total throwback. Croteam developed Serious Sam: The First Encounter to be a...

It’s too bad that this HD remake doesn’t have anything new besides the visuals. A new weapon or a handful of new levels would’ve been a nice, reasonable addition to the game beyond a coat of new paint for a game from 2001. Serious Sam HD: The First...

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter


I have a confession to make. Until recently, I have never played any of the Serious Sam games. Yeah, it's a crime, I know. However, when the first game came out in 2001, I wasn't really into first person shooters. The only ones I really played were...

While the game itself isn't bad so to speak, it does get repetitive kind of quickly. It's an interesting concept, and I am a huge fan of 16-bit games, especially RPGs, but the short length of the game and the repetitiveness of the battles is kind of a...

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter


In 2001, the world was treated to a little gem of a game called Serious Sam: The First Encounter. It was an over the top shooter that harkened to

Serious Sam:The Random Encounter Review


Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is perhaps the most unique take on a shooter since the magic bullet theory.

As what’s essentially a marketing device, TRE could’ve ended up in the less-than-glorious ranks of games released to promo fast-food chains, but instead ended up being a really innovative take on an FPS conversion. Sure, it’s not very deep from an...

Review: Serious Sam: The Random Encounter (PC)


This retro-inspired RPG re-imagining of Croteam's gruff-'n-tough gunman is a novel distraction, but it suffers from a serious dearth of depth.

Cool mix of shooting and RPG strategy; crisp, well-done 16-bit pixel art

Only takes a couple of hours to beat; limited gameplay wears thin towards the end; running out of items mid-way forces a restart

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter review [PC]


As we wait for the release of Serious Sam 3, an interesting PR campaign has been going on to promote the new shooter. Indie developers have been commissioned by Croteam and Devolver Digital to create their own takes on the Serious Sam series. Taking...

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter - PC review at Thunderbolt Games


Conceptually, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter appears to be an impossibility, a creation of science and magic that boggles the mind. The idea was to take the Serious Sam series, games which prize their hordes of enemies and classic style over plot,...

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter PC Review


The latest entry in the Serious Sam Indie Series, Serious Sam: Random Encounter adds an RPG twist and retro feel to our hero's never-ending battle with Mental.

Croteam commissioned three indie developers to recreate Serious Sam in different styles as part of a campaign leading up to the release of Serious Sam 3: BFE this November. As the third installment in the ongoing Serious Sam Indie Series, Serious Sam:...

Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter


Retro, over-the-top FPS action returns to the PC in this HD remake. (PC)

All those tongue-in-cheek gaming icons of old seem to have been having a bit of a rough time lately, but Serious Sam has managed to break out of the prison Duke Nukem couldn't with a few High Definition remakes of his finest hits.

Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter on PC games


Seriously Stop with the Serious Jokes

There really isn’t anything wrong with Sam, from his random one liners to the crazy weapons that he just seems to find laying around, aside from the fact that it doesn’t seem like enough people know about him. The game looks great on a high end gaming...
