is this game worth buying?

I've been thinking about getting this game recently and was wondering people who own the game think 1200 MS Points is worth it for this game?

I thought it was worth it, the graphics are so much better than the old one...and there is achievements and online co op!

I was recommended this game by a friend, and I'd never played the original, but I can say that I feel it's 1200 points for a reason, and even at that price it's a bargain. Just make sure you have a mate to play with because it's a barrel of laughs in co-op.

it's the funniest arcade game i ever played!
because hunderds of aliens/monsters are running to you.
and you can customise the blood from the monsters/aliens to candy.


if you like the demo. you sure will like the full game.


Only some achievements are difficult...

Yes this game is worth buying
i still have my copy of this game on PC yet due to the fact this is HD and has online CO-OP over XBL i brought it here also

it can be played through quickly but you can replay it on your own or with other people trying to find every secret and its allways fun

soo yes you should buy it

I was impressed with the demo and liked it, but still wondering if it's worth the 800 points. I have some points to spare and nothing else to buy for awhile. Not worried about achievements, but how is the online co-op? As in, is it dead, hard to find a match or you'll find a match quickly? Also, might get it in hopes that it'll turn out to be fun for others to play on my 360.

I tried the demo when it first came out and love it. However, I just thought the 1200MSP was too steep, but when the Deal of the Week brought it down to 800MSP, that was a great price! I ended up getting it yesterday, and I love it.

Although, I haven't tried the multiplayer yet. Just getting used to the game by myself. If you end up getting it, let me know. I'll do some co-op with you!

it's definitely an awesome game, but it's completely kicking my butt. I can't make it on serious difficulty at all. Kudos to all that have 200/200 on this one. You are all in a class of your own. And I reside ten steps down.

The only reason I would say not to buy it is because its toned down on violence (No blood particularly). But the graphics are nice and I did enjoy this on the original xbox.

I know it is quite late for a response, but it is not true. The game is very gory, with blood splashing on the floor, walls, and even on your screen. Not to mention the flying bodyparts. You can set the blood effects yourself.
Also, anybody who missed this on DotW for 400 MSP, well... it worths the 1200 as well.

Thumbs up Serious Sam worth it?

Yes this game is absolutely worth it. When it first came out for pc it was 50 bucks! It is a full length retail game with brand new redone hd graphics. Tons of fun, great co-op, tons of secrets to find in each level, and challenging chevos to be unlocked. A great fps for the money. Great replay value.

A mate of mine got me into Serious Sam when I played them on his Steam account years ago, saw them on the XBLA and wanted them for my own.
