IRB Gamer- "Serious Sam is a well known franchise from consoles past and PC. The appearance of this title on XBLA is sure to make long-time fans of the series rejoice. This 2 dimensional side-scroller transports the player back to the golder age of shooters with tons of gore, crazy dialogue and non-stop action. The basic plot requires our hero, Sam, to shut down a number of portals throughout Egypt. Finely crafted levels hold a slew of secrets and unlockables waiting to be discovered by the meticulous player on their journeys."
