[At the time of writing I only have 1 hour on this game. I have previously beaten it on a non-Steam version.]
Serious Sam 2 is my favorite game in the franchise because it takes a huge step away in terms of art style and story telling from the First and Second Encounter. Serious Sam 2 is a whole lot more colorful and silly, and that's why I love it. The gun design is really wacky and over-the-top, with a ten barrell shotgun, a huge rocket launcher that takes up half the screen, a parrot that carries a bomb and kamikazies where ever you throw it and more. The world is very beautiful too, taking place on some alien planet full of color, huge trees, and lots of cool and different villages for you to explore. The monster design is awesome too. The gameplay is the same if you've ever played a Serious Sam game, and that's alright. There are also vehicles and turrets that you can use which are pretty cool as well.
If you're in the market for a arcade shooter where you can mow down endless waves of baddies, I think this is the best game to get. Awesome graphics, beautiful enviroments, and overall very fun gameplay.
