i tried it earlier when i was at home and had problems audio wise

other than that it was ''ok''. i expected a bit more though tbh.

also, anyone knows if hdr and fsaa can be enabled together? (unlike chaos theory)

I liked it more than the first personally. Just added it to my preorder along with fear and quake 4.

After fiddling with the options for like 15 minutes I found myself a great performance/quality ratio.







I enjoyed the demo, doesn't seem far off for the first two SS games except for the updated graphics and increased sillyness of some things. I don't know what you people are complaining about, seems like Serious Sam to me.

Me too, I dunno why people expected more... err... exactly what were you expecting? Shadows to hide in, huge story line and ground breaking AI??

This is Serious Sam! Its got everything from the originals. Guns, humour and loads of stuff to kill!

I really enjoyed it. It was short but looked very pretty, was loaded with monsters and the chaingun rocked!

As for the music... it's one level and the music suited the area well. Personally I'm more into heavy metal but I know it's there... just not in this level

Nice screenshots. A lot more interesting than mine.

Ah so that's the level used in the demo. Was hoping for the Kleer's homeworld but oh well. Still looking forward to playing this demo when I get back home from work.

I have been reading tons of user reviews today. I can't wait to try it for myself later tonight.

Most of the people have been very dissapointed in the demo. Mainly because they say it feels to different to the original SS, and that the weapons are weak and lack recoil, or proper animation. They also say it feels alot like a console port.

Also, they say that the enemies are boring, and annoying.

Just depends on what you find annoying or not. I personally think that alot of people tend to expect something groundbreaking with every new release or sequel to a game.Hey if it's fun then it's all good. I found quitting KEEF doesn't make you as critical

It seems to be very smooth. It's at 1280x960 Everything on the highest option, and HDR on too. Very Smooth!

Well I liked it.. great fun. Lots of shooting, lots of explosions.. nice and colorfull too.

The only thing that spoilt it for me, was my PC constantly freezing every 20 seconds or so. This game brings out the 6800+nf3 freeze bug way more than any other game.
