Default Re: Serious Sam 2 Demo Feedback Thread

I tried the demo last night, didnt like it at all. And this is coming from a fan of the series. Not only were the graphics crap, the gameplay was a disaster as well. Mindless shooting, my fix is still painkiller. SS2 is a huge let down. Sure this is one level of a demo, maybe the rest of the game is great, but this demo is enogh to steer me clear of a purchase.

Actually..

It's not even a full level that you played.

If you go around the backside of the building where you are supposed to land at, you can enter the building from the back side.

It is unfinished in the demo, but the level is meant to continue past that point.

Let me get this straight:

People are complaining that Serious Sam is mindless shooting? May I ask you what you expected otherwise?

I expected mindless shooting and was disappointed that it felt like a toned down version of the originals... slow paced and just boring enemies.

MaguS, it was one level... ONE!

There are more enemies then that, every game has its share of crap enemies.

I have played other levels... I was at E3. I mentioned when I got back in my writ-up that it sucked and it still sucks months after.

Not at all. I was hoping for mindless fun, action packed gaming that the SS franchise is known for. This is a snooze fest.
