It's cool to see how far video games have come. Espcially taking an old franchise and giving it a fresh coat of HD paint. Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter brings back fond memories of pre-halo shooting games like Doom or Castle Wolfenstien. It plays similar to those games and is super easy to get into. However is this worth your XBLA points?
"Enemies in SS HD are the punchlines of the game. Whether its from their quirky designs or the funny sound effects. At first you can upon the compressed sound as bad quality , but then again you can't help but chuckle at the absurd sound effects the monster's make. One thing that keeps this game in a constant pace of action is the enemies, which all seem to run at you, keeping you on your toes. Definitely pays homage to the original and can be seen in games today like left 4 dead."
