Default Serious Sam II gets 6.9 from Gamespot!

Wow, I knew it wouldn't be as good as the original from the demo but a 6.9? Holy crap that's bad coming from GS.

Now the debate, do I get this? It is co-op, and very few games have this, but 6.9? Man, I might have to pass on this.

6.9 looks good if you know what i mean

well if we consider the Quake 4 "70%" story then SS2 is as good as Quake 4 heh.

I'm sure I'll still get it. I enjoyed the demo.

Wow that's a pretty mediocre score, guess the game doesn't differ from the demo much at all then.

I'm with OWA on this. It's quite good, no matter what some reviewer thinks.

Did any of them include Coop gameplay?
Cause any SS game is IMO utter crap, if not played in Coop, then its sortof amusing for a while, but still not great..

Yeah 8.2 is a fair score. Demo was very short but the graphics and action was nothing wrong with it.

6.9 is really a little low is should be some where around 7.5 - 7.9
