Serious Sam 2 review

Simplistic and silly stuff, but the action and characters make this a slice of sheer shooting bliss.

For

  • The Herculean boss battles
  • Online ranking tables
  • The simplistic and unabashed mayhem

Against

  • The paper thin plot
  • Not much replay value
  • Bonuses and secrets aren't much

All these so-called "authentic" war-themed shooters are fine and dandy, but what if you're one of those people who thinks the gritty realism of them is a bummer? Step forward square-jawed hero, Sam, for a second outing. With a stash of noisy whack-ass weapons and vehicles, a ridiculous plot that%26rsquo;s so thin you could stick a miniskirt on it and call it Kate Moss, and little more to do than frag your way through a near endless succession of ludicrously designed but grin-worthy enemies, Sam is the perfect antidote to the mass slaughter of your virtual fellow men and won%26rsquo;t give you morality-induced headaches. What Sam will give you is hours of top arcade blasting fun.
