Sam Stone is like a shark with guns if he stops moving and fighting for even a moment, he drowns in a sea of furious enemies.
Played in co-op with a buddy, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is a simple, intense run and- gun shooter with hundreds of enemies of all shapes and sizes streaming towards you as if drawn in by powerful magnets in your pants. It's an absurd game full of absurd baddies such as Jack-O-Lanternheaded chainsaw murderers and sunburned space aliens that have nothing to do with the settings (Mayan ruins, Ancient Egypt, jungles) or even each other (good thing there's no story). It makes no apologies for its lack of sophisticated AI or its blocky, undetailed level design straight out of Quake. Death is meaningless you just respawn and resume firing. Short, controlled bursts are for wimps.
Compared to The First Encounter, not much has changed.
