World leaders turn to their only hope, an ancient artifact called the "Time-Lock" that can teleport a single person back in time. The choice of whom to send is obvious: you are the only hope for humankind. Return the past and change it by exterminating the evil forces determined to end humanity.

    In der Zeit der ersten interplanetaren Reisen wird die Menschheit von der Reinkarnation eines ägyptischen Gottes bedroht. Mittels einer Zeitmaschine wird der Söldner Sam "Serious" Stone in das antike Ägypten gesandt, um Mental und seine abscheulichen Kreaturen zur Strecke zu bringen.

    Sie kämpfen als Serious Sam gegen ganze Horden unterschiedlicher Gegner: feuerstarke Bio-Mechanoide, gewaltige Tiere, flinke Skelete - oder auch gefährliche Kamikaze, die mit wildem Gebrüll auf Sie zulaufen, um beim Kontakt mit Ihnen eine Bombe explodieren zu lassen. Serious Sam sorgt mit einer eigens gestalteten Engine für ein nie dagewesenes Feuerwerk aus Grafikpracht, Geschwindigkeit und bombastischer Action im Arcade-Stil.

Back of Case - XBox:
    MOnsters spawned from another dimension are trying to make the Milky Way galaxy their personal trashcan. As attempts to defend the solar system fail, the fate of the Earth (that's US people!) and even the universe rests with one man.

    YOU are Sam 'Serious' Stone, a legend in our time. Sam is our only hope against these mischievous miscreants and their evil leader, the one we call 'MENTAL'.

    The only way to get Mental and save us all, is to use an ancient artifact called the 'Time Lock', to teleport back in time. Don't ask us how or why this is happening. All we can tell you is, this is serious...
