They could'nt have done worse- contrived, silly, and boring action, lousy sound/music (sounds like Playstaion “Sonic”), zero atmosphere, not to mention the lack of innovation in the graphics although the landscape is good. Kids like it- says it all.
Needless to say Croteam have lost the plot and will have to pull something seriously decent out from the hat to regain their “patch”. I strongly recommend obtaining the demo- wish I did! But at least there are some good third-party levels to download for Serious Sam SE.
