Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter

Genre - Action

Metascore - 68%

Developer - Croteam

Other Games by Developer - Serious Sam 2, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter

Stef's Playtime - 9.6 hours

SSHD:TFE is an FPS from a time before chest high walls were invented - your primary method of not getting killed is to run around in a circle and dodge incoming bullets... and lasers... and bulls... and lava! The action can go from calm to incredibly frantic in a instant when 100 enemies suddenly spawn out of nowhere, completely surrounding you. Some of the later fights are hard to the point that they actually feel unfair but finally clearing a difficult room is extremely satisfying. If you find the single player a bit dull there is always the sixteen(!) player co-op mode.

Stef's Score - 6/10
