Any Serious Sam lovers?

So Steam had a Serious Sam sale for $9.99 for the whole series. Playing SS HD The First Encounter now and LOVING it. That game is Creepy. When that cow thing is heard galloping...

I love it when I evaded the boulder and he hums the Indiana Jones theme And when one of the headless guys goes Aaaaaaahhhh (BTW how can a headless guy scream?) and he goes Aaaaahhhh I'm over here you numbnuts!!! Really awesome game. Gonna go in order through the series.

I'm doing it in God Mode with Invisibility (enemies don't know you're there they just stand in place) and all weapons/ammo. And having a blast. I don't know how anyone could beat this without cheats. Although the invisibility backfired on me, a level wasn't "moving" until I temporarily took off the invisibility and that triggered a boss enemy.

Extremely rare that I laugh out loud playing a game.

The second one is my favorite. Land of the Damned and The Grand Catherdral were tough level but pure fun.

Re: Any Serious Sam lovers?

I completed both the first and second games without cheats. Great games that needed little in the way of brain power. For me the best things were the End Bosses. I recall one last Boss being outside a Giant Church and he was floating around as you are attacked by lots of monsters. Another had you leaving an Egyptian city and behing you a giant Minotaur like creature came at you destroying the city walls as he came. That was awesome. I also recall the last boss from the third game (i believe as i recall the last one in the series i played was not as good as the first two) had you fighting against a giant Pyramid that was on wheels. The sense of size and scope of these games was a real highlight for me.
