Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter – Free Weekend!by Thomas Hruska on Jul. 08, 2010, under Arts
A free weekend of fun and a plethora of baddies to shoot, maim, explode, and destroy. You know – general mayhem. The stuff Serious Sam I and II were made of. Now in HD…
…and a Metacritic rating of 75%. Basically, if you have played and beaten Serious Sam II before, it is the same game, sort of. Only it apparently uses a different game engine that doesn’t have all of the features of the original.
I might give it a whirl for old-time’s sake. I really do like how a lot of the old game developers that are still around are remaking their games that don’t play any more on new hardware. LucasArts, for example, is remaking some of their old games – the classic Monkey Island series for starters. Nostalgia seems to be the driving factor.
