Developed by Croatian developers Croteam, Serious Sam has been around for years, slowly gathering fans and appearing on more and more consoles. This is the first time I have played the game, although I have heard many positives, nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to experience. It harkens back to the bygone days of the first person shooter, attacking you with as many enemies as possible from every imaginable angle. In fact, it takes that mechanic and multiplies it tenfold, creating an entirely memorable experience. This game terrified me in places, leaving me a tense, fidgeting, wide-eyed mess. But I loved every maniacal second."
