Post Serious Sam the first encounter review

Serious Sam the first encounter is an old game, it is the first Serious Sam game ever made and features levels packed full of enemies, by the hundreds. And is okay even in today's high standards, although the graphincs look dated, the gameplay makes up for it. You should play this, if you want to see how much the HD remake has improved on the graphics. The enemy count sometimes I feel goes over 50 enemies at once, without any sign of lag, the game has a backstory, but it isn't very important, since this game is nearly only about killing. The game takes place in ancient Egypt, many of the locations in the game, exist in real life.

This reads like a paragraph from a book report. XD

Serious Sam 1 (TFE and TSE classic) is one of the rare games I always reinstall when ever I buy a new computer or format the disk.

I heard there are headless guys with bombs that run toward you, but they yell AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA while running to you even though they don't have a head! Is that true, because it sounds funny.

Do they intend to make a sequel?
Sounds like if it does well there could be a "second encounter" or something like that.

What about some of the crazy weapons? Like a cannon that shoots...giant cannonballs. Ridiculous! But awesome, isn't it?

This game is so awesome Steam has packaged it with SS HD in gold edition.

The characters had such sculpted edges and the world is textured in an old fashioned grain.

I only fear once newbies play the original SS they will never touch SS HD again.

It's the other way around.
Once people play SSHD, original game becomes 'trash'.

If SEd 1 worked in Win7 64-bit I would still check out SS1 and map stuff.

"Second Encounter"?
Dude what are you on? They should call it "Serious Sam 2".
Come on you know it makes sense.
