I can really only think of one down side to Serious Sam -- it costs $40. This is a game that provides hours of good, stupid fun, sure, but that just seems a bit steep for a game that's neither particularly novel nor very long from start to finish. So, if you happen to be reading this at some future date when Sam's price has been inevitably slashed to something a bit less zany, then congratulations, mysterious man from beyond tomorrow! You can go ahead and pretend that three-and-a-half star score is actually a five. Or you could check out the even cheaper, even older school Serious Sam: Double D.
