Arrow Serious Sam 2 demo feedback thread

Quote:
This demo contains the complete Seriousopolis Uptown level from the game, which can be played solo, or over LAN or online by up to four people. It also contains all the weapons from the game (although you may have to cheat to see all of them), one of the game's vehicles and a nice variety of the insane enemies that Sam is well known for.

You closed the other thread just when i was posting my reply

anyway after seeing some bad impressions i was wondering if theres any HDR or special effects at least (shaders , bump maps etc..) ?

i'm downloading the demo anyway because i want it for the pure action plus the co-op which is rather fun & interesting feature.

I thought it was crap compared to the original Serious Sam games. The excitment and pressure seems to be gone, enemy animation seems lacking and alot of the enemies are just boring aswell.

I enabled HDR but could barely tell it was on, looked like bloom. No blending or focusing effects at all.

Graphically I enjoyed SSse more. Everything from music to the humor was campy and WAY over the top. I hope this full game is better than the demo level, but I won't be buying it.

I enjoyed it and like someone mentioned in the other thread, it's kind of like being in a cartoon. It was more taxing on my system than I thought it would be though. With everything maxed and playing at 1600x1200 it would sometimes dip into the 20s especially if HDR is on. When I used the autodetect, it set everything to max but chose 1280x960 as the res. SLI helps a little but not as much as I had hoped (with the mins anyway). I tried SFR, AFR and AFR2 before deciding on AFR. I also had to use the RunFirst command, otherwise my mouse was flakey, especially in the menu.



Edit: Added pics of the advanced video options for those curious about what it supports.

Well, bear in mind that I'm not as picky as some and I have liked other demos/games that not many others liked. I'm easily amused.

Edit: If you've got broadband, it won't waste much of your time to try it. The download speed was over 400K/sec so it didn't take long at all.
