If you are craving a seriously good time, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter on Xbox Live Arcade fulfils your lust for carnage on an absolutely massive scale. Wave after wave of enemies will come bearing down on you and unless you are equipped with a tour-de-force collection of weaponry and guile, annihilation will be your only reward for your pitiful attempts. It may be a gaming classic, but the modern enhancements bring it bang up-to-date with splendid visuals and a fast unforgiving gameplay that shouldn't be missed.
The Serious Sam HD: Second Encounter game holds his rightful place in the top shooters of 2010. This tribute to the 90's FPS will provide an awesome distraction from the real world while, at the same time, giving you a lot of fun in single-player as well as in multiplayer games.

“Serious Sam: The Second Encounter HD” is a fun and ridiculous battle through hordes of enemies. The gameplay is solid and facilitates the intense action perfectly. Frustration will set in as the difficulty ramps up near the end of each level but as long as you can set the controller down and come back in an hour or so you might just find that face of anger is replaced with a smile. It is disappointing that there are so few online matches available through Xbox Live because the multiplayer options are plentiful and offer fun and fast-paced action. “Serious Sam: TSE HD” is not a game for everyone. Know what you are getting into with “Serious Sam: TSE” and enjoy it for what it is: an adrenaline pumped ride of bullets and bombs with bad humour, worse characters, and a whole ton of enemy hordes to destroy.
Vous êtes fan de Serious Sam et aimez dessouder des milliards de bestioles sans cervelle en hurlant des inepties ? Alors vous a-do-re-rez ce remake ! D'autant qu'en plus du coop, le bougre renoue enfin avec les modes multi compétitifs. Le tout est une nouvelle fois associé à une refonte graphique réussie qui n'empêche pas la naissance d'un délectable sentiment de nostalgie. Bourrinissime, jouissif, délicieusement primaire et désuet, The Second Encounter n'a qu'un seul défaut : son prix, bien trop élevé. Mais le fait est que retrouver ce cher Sam plus en forme que jamais vaut franchement le coup. Et puis, il s'agit peut-être là du meilleur moyen de passer le temps en attendant Serious Sam 3.
It may be a little long in the tooth for some, but Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is big, dumb fun. This is a definite improvement on the 2002 shooter classic, and as such, it is a ton of zany fun for anyone who wants to revisit the game, and certainly recommended for shooter fans who didn't get to experience the original back in the day.

Quien se hizo con la revisión HD de Serious Sam el año pasado ya sabe a qué nos enfrentamos, y teniendo en cuenta que los originales salieron solo con un año de diferencia pues es lógico que no nos encontremos con novedades destacables entre uno y otro, siendo la principal una mayor variedad e imaginación en los escenarios que recorremos. Para quien no haya disfrutado de ninguna entrega de esta saga o de algún shooter semejante puede ser una buena ocasión para realizar un acercamiento distinto a los juegos de acción en primera persona, acción sin complejos y sin regeneración automática de vida, con una dificultad bastante alta sólo apta para valientes. Nunca está de más probar cosas nuevas, nunca se sabe cuándo uno puedo tener un flechazo con un tipo de juego, y más en el caso que nos ocupa con un título tan divertido.
