Product Description

Product Description

Serious Sam: The Next Encounter takes you into a den of warfare where you'll take out piles and piles of alien monsters. The action is fast and intense, the shooting never stops and the ammunition doesn't run out. Gory, wild, over-the-top fun -- with the frenetic pacing and nonstop shooting action you love!

From the Manufacturer

Serious Sam gets called into action! An abandoned mothership of Sirian origin is sending strange signals from the past, and there's only one man with the guns big enough to investigate--Sam "Serious" Stone. If Mental's forces beat Sam to this powerful time-traveling artifact, it's last call for humanity! This is serious.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously Flawed! April 27, 2004
By A Customer
As a huge fan of Serious Sam for the PC, and the XBOX, I was expecting this to be the all out best sequel! But this really is dissapointing in every catagory. The graphics are not poor, but not good either, but nothing even close to the XBOX version. The sound has alot of samples from the first two "encounters", the new gun fire sound effects are extremely poor, with the exception of the double-barrel shotgun.
Some classic characters return, like the headless kamikaze bombers, but they are animated differently, which wouldn't be necessarily a bad thing, but that's just it, the animation is poor too. There are new multi-player characters, like Suzi Darko, and Silicon Sam.
Gameplay wise this game just doesn't "feel" like a Serious Sam game, control issues, like no crouch, and a very odd controller setup don't give it that arcade feel that made Serious Sam so fun in the first place. Since I have not played it online, I can't comment on the multiplayer, but the single player game will not inspire anybody to go buy a modem and try.
Unless you're collecting Serious Sam stuff, or you don't own a PC, or XBOX, then you might want to try it out, but otherwise don't bother, it's just not "Serious Sam".

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY POOR GAME April 16, 2004
By A Customer
Serious Sam: Next Encounter really is the weakest of all the Serious Sam games released to date.
If I were to rate the graphics, then I would give them about 2/10 on a good day. The graphics are too rough to look at for extended sessions, the game features simple textures that you'd expect to see on a PS One game, and not on a next gen console like the PS2 or Game cube. You would think that the lack of impressive graphics might be made up for by good game play, but no, the game is dull and repetitive. It really is quite shocking to see such a poor release as this one.
I would not wish this game on anybody. Take note!

1.0 out of 5 stars Try before you buy April 16, 2004
My first impressions of Serious Sam: Next Encounter were that the game is
At best average. The graphics don't help much, they look really very dated.
The graphics, they use few polygons and are covered with very simple looking
Character design too is ok`ish, some of the original characters from the
Original Serious Sam games are present. In fact, the characters from the
Original PC version, are still the best looking creatures of the bunch,
Particularly the people who run around screaming holding a bomb in
Each hand. Other than that, there are few laughs left in this rather
Repetitive run a round and shoot things game.
In every level there is the same old thing to do. Shoot die, shoot die.
Serious Sam: Next Encounter is a bit of a yawn feast really.
At best, Serious Sam is, all said and done, average.
Co-op mode provides some multiplayer and one-on-one action. `Speed-
Ups' are one of more pointless power up`s to feature in Serious Sam, they're
No use what so ever. The game doesn't get any faster at all???
To sum it up, Serious Sam is a definite try before you buy title!

4.0 out of 5 stars I didn't think much of Sam 2nd encounter May 3, 2004
By Jack
If you enjoy playing mind-numbing, tedious, repetitive games, then serious Sam, next encounter will be right up your alley. I really wanted to like this game, but in truth, it is not so hot. Wise cracking Sam isn't remotely funny or amusing. The look of the game is unimpressive and the sound does its job, just. This is the first serious Sam type game I have played and I didn't think much of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars TRASH IT! May 5, 2004
The most fun you'll have with Serious Sam next encounter is as you launch the box and its contents into the nearest trash can. Then for more fun, dig the game out of the trash can and repeat the process over and over until full satisfaction is achieved.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful Game May 1, 2004
By kirt
I cannot believe someone gave Serious Sam Next Encounter 5 stars - it is a dreadful game. The levels maybe huge, they are huge and bland with it and where are all the enemies to shoot - hiding somewhere? - On the PC version there appears to be at times 30 to 40 creatures charging at you all at once, on this the PS2 version there appears to about 8 creatures charging at you at any one time, it really is a very poor interpretation of the PC version. There is no excitement to be had.
What with the lack of excitement and the low level poor graphics - steer clear of this one

4.0 out of 5 stars Discus Fun April 27, 2004
The most fun me and my brother got out of serious Sam next encounter was when we used the cd a discus, that was huge fun i can tell you. Although we've stopped playing that game now, ever since mom wedged the cd under one of the legs of our coffee table to stop the damn thing wobbling.
Serious Sam Next Encounter = One expensive table stabilizer

1.0 out of 5 stars what went wrong? April 16, 2004
I am a big fan of the First Person Shooter and this `Serious Sam: Next Encounter' don't qualify. It's awful, it's really bad!!! This game looks so ugly! It really does. You don't have to take my word for it, go and look on the internet.
The game plays slow, why? It's supposed to be chaotic, but it isn't? What went wrong with the PS2 version of Serious Sam??? - If you want Serious Sam, then check out the original on PC version that is as good as it got.
I hope this review has been of help to you all.
