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. I just bought the whole collection on steam. I played them years ago as they came out but when I seen them on sale for $17 cdn for the entire collection I thought wtf there's not as many fast passed shooters like this anymore.

  2. i had this game on Sasha's(my aunt's husband) laptop when it came out, it was in Russian, because Sasha was Russian..
    and all the voices were in russian
    and so the difficulty selection screen was russian…
    i wonder what difficulty i was playing on.

  3. I played this once, with a friend of mine and somehow one of those kamikaze bombheads got stuck somewhere. We looked for him for more than 15 minutes until we finally found an edge of his head popping out of a rock. The screaming of course never ending.

  4. I really didn't like this game for the cartoon aspect I played this first and then played serious sam HD and serious sam 3 but it just felt ehheh too wacky or cartoony


  6. I have played all the Serious Sam games. This is my favorite, for some reason.

    The plasma Rifle is soooo satisfying.

  7. I beat this at 8 years old when my mom bought it for me alongside morrowind, dont know why i havent replayed, this video brought back a lot of memories

  8. If only this game would actually work on Steam…:< When I tried playing, it just straight up wouldn't recognize my mouse, no matter what I tried, so I just gave up

  9. SS2 is much more interesting than other SS games for me.It have interesting story and it's difficult.Other SS games is boring.And who says the game is not serious is not true. The game is a mix of fun and there are crazy things in it as well as red and green blood.This is the best game for me!

  10. I fucking hate it personally. FFS I loved TSE… but this fucking game removed everything that Sam actually was – gritty style, one-liners, split screen ffs everything. This is good looking game, that's boring, has boring weapons, cringy art style and poorly designed encounters. The thing is later levels really shine and really do feel like proper Serious Sam game. But overall this game fucking sucks.

    ANd I cannot understand why they do this to style. The thing is in the name – Sam is fucking Serious, make your game fucking Serious. It always played on some sort of disconnection of gritty story and realistic art style and absurd action. You know, first encounter intro is telling you that you are last fucking human alive so you really need to fix this shit. Can't get more serious than that. That's what was really fun about it – the game wasn't shy of being stupid af, while present itself as some bandwagon edgy b-movie stuff. And Serious Sam 2 was just stupid and cringy and that's it.

  11. Could you review Next Encounter? I know you’ve probably been asked before
    But I think it’s really different than a lot of the main games, and really underrated 😞

  12. Honestly, the only unfair level for me was the one in the swamp area because it limits your movement a lot and you cant dodge incoming fire. The rest of the campaign was ok, but I still prefer the 1st and 2nd encounter over this one.

  13. in short this was like the pandaria expansion for world of warcraft. a break from the normal war and a focus on a more light heartedness of it all

  14. Best Shooter in my book, and i played ALOT of games. There is nothing weird with this game, you are.
    A good mix between kicking ass , great secrets that sometimes forces you to think. I like 100% everything about this game,the soundtracks, the medieval themed levels, the asian themed levels, the jokes, animations ,everything. Back when people were making good games
