When Serious Sam first hit the scenes in 2001, everyone thought he was going to be a blatant rip-off of Duke Nukem as he sounded and acted very similar to Duke. The similarities ended there though as Serious Sam was a seriously difficult game, with enemies showing up non-stop throughout the entire game. My hairs still stand up on end when I hear the headless, kamikaze enemies screaming as they run to you with bombs in both of their hands.
If you have fond memories of Serious Sam as much as I do, then you’ll be delighted to know that Serious Sam is making his way to the XBLA. Majesco Entertainment will be releasing the title in late Summer 2009 for 1200 Microsoft Points. Serious Sam HD will be a re-imagining of the original game with upgraded HD graphics. We’re told the game will also feature 4-player co-op.
