Serious Sam: Double D XXL Review - The Digital Fix

Nostalgia’s a funny thing. You can look back on old platform games fondly, reminisce with friends about how cutting-edge their graphics were, marvel at their grandness of scope in design and how much fun they were to play, and ruminate about how times have changed and how we’ll never see the likes of them again in this modern age of gaming. Then you boot up your 8-bit machine, load an old game and realise how utterly dated they are. “I can’t play this!” you exclaim, as you shudder at having a mere three lives, the lack of any sort of save point, and the requirement to make pixel-perfect timed jumps and shots to navigate labyrinthine levels designed by the most twisted of sadists. (Serious Sam: Double D XXL, Xbox 360) 6/10
