Today Xbox 360 owners can relive 2001 in beautiful HD with the release of Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter on Xbox Live Arcade.The Serious Sam series (say that three times fast) has been an indie, cult favorite since it’s first installment on PC. It’s a first-person shooter that falls somewhere in the comedic realm of Duke Nukem meets South Park. Anyone who was fond of those early FPS’s (pre-Halo series), or who has an affinity for humor spliced within their shooting rampages should definitely pick up Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter.
“Based on the original indie arcade shooter sensation Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam HD features stunningly redesigned visuals, over-the-top action, and intense online co-op for up to four players.” – Xbox.com
This re-imagining of Serious Sam: The First Encounter was developed for Xbox Live Arcade by Croteam and powered by their next-generation Serious Engine 3. It will run Xbox 360 owners 1200 Microsoft Points, or $15 US and was rated M by the ESRB.
