Page 4: Gameplay
This is the most controversial part of the game. Some will love the game others will not. For those who love brainless annihilation of zillions of monsters that all run at you at the same time, this game is the ideal pick. For those who like tactical shooters like Ghost Recon, Delta Force, this game does not have much to offer other than exhausting training of you reaction. I personally enjoyed the game. This game does allow you to relax and have some fun since the game is built with humor. To describe the gaming experience, imagine a big stadium with you in the middle, and all of the audience are enemies running at you all at once simultaneously while shooting, jumping , flying. The fights in the game are a mess and that is exactly what you will love it for, of course it can get irritating at times, if it does that means it is time for you to go get a break. There are five difficulty levels. I played normal and found it quite competitive. Yet you can replay the game millions of times and each time you will find new challenges, and it will not bore you a bit.
Weapons are numerous, you will not find a title that features so many weapons. There are all of the old weapons plus a lot of new ones. The “Bonecracker” chainsaw, perfect close combat mass murderer weapon, and the flame-thrower aka RTCW yet with much more severe damage. You will love the flame-thrower when going in spiral inferno dance around your enemies.
Interactivity is improved, you can now cut the trees with chainsaw or burn them with flame, you can blow up columns and statues( it is a pity that not all of them). You can also shoot switches with your guns. A lot more traps are waiting for you in the Serious Sam:SE, they are a lot of fun too I have to admit.
The gameplay is very engaging and very straightforward, no need to look for hours for a key hidden somewhere, run and destroy everything you see. All the items you need to proceed you will find on the way. All of the above combined with a lot of humor in the best traditions of Duke Nukem make the game shine.<BR>
