Ah, nothing like a taste of mowing down hundreds of hostile alien lifeforms to make me forget about a certain lousy purchase I made earlier in the week.
Any game that gives you very big guns and then throws hundreds of enemies running right in your direction cannot possibly be all that bad.
I was a fan of the first "Serious Sam HD" game (even though I currently only have 45 gamerscore on it), so I happily picked up the second one earlier today.
Then I made the mistake of starting my first playthrough on "Serious" difficutly, and got my ass handed to me repeatedly just a minute into the first level. This game does not fuck around with the difficulty, that's for sure. Then again, neither did the first one.
Well, wish me luck on getting some gamerscore on this game - although I don't think I'll be getting the achievement for defeating the last level on "Serious" difficulty without dying once anytime in the near future.
