The sequel to Serious Sam is an equally un-serious FPS with everything blown out of proportion. It offers huge levels with hundreds of opponents, funny worlds with various themes, a vivid colour palette, lots of big guns and some of the largest bosses around. Sam "Serious" Stone must fight through the minions of evil mastermind Mental to collect the five pieces of a medallion which will allow him to harm Mental himself.

The game is based around DOOM's more simple approach to gameplay with a dose of old school game design featuring score, a life-count and extra lives. The outrageous enemies come in waves, dozens at a time, ammo for the basic weapons is plentiful and action almost never ceases. The game's engine combines support for a high model count on screen at any given time with a long draw distance.

One of the friendly characters in the game thanks Sam for rescuing him, and says that he was tired of "waiting forever" for "that blondie guy" to rescue him. This is a reference to the painfully long development time of Duke Nukem Forever, given the fact that the "blondie guy" he mentions is Duke Nukem...

    • Issue 02/2006 - Gun Man of 2005 (for Sam, because he killed more enemies in a few minutes than other heroes in their whole game)
