Description

Sam is back in the second episode of his battles with his arch-nemesis Mental. After finding the Sirian spacecraft in ancient Egypt, Sam "Serious" Stone hijacked it and is heading for Mental himself.

Unfortunately, Sam loses control of the alien ship and crashlands somewhere in the South American mountains.

Now, Sam is surrounded by an even stronger army of Mental's forces, Sam will have to battle his way towards Mental's fortress in order to put a stop to Mental's plans once and for all.

Trivia

Croteam is indeed caring about the fans of their Serious Sam games. If you look deep in the credits, you can see the names (or actually, nicknames) of the most active members of the Seriously forum (http://dynamic3.gamespy.com/~serioussam/forums).

A few of them were even awarded one of the most wanted prizes in the entire world: a secret room with their pictures. Look for it on a side of the temple, in the first level.
