Some SE­RI­OUSLY good gam­ing!

Midweek Sport - - GADGET BOY -

THE SE­RI­OUS SAM COL­LEC­TION – Xbox 360 – £29.99 CAV­ING in the heads of thou­sands of alien bad guys never re­ally goes out of fash­ion.

Which is why this bonkers first-per­son-shooter – first un­leashed for PCs back in 2001 – is get­ting an­other new mod­ern re­lease.

This re-mas­tered HD col­lec­tion in­cludes Se­ri­ous Sam HD: The First En­counter, Se­ri­ous Sam HD: The Sec­ond En­counter, Se­ri­ous Sam 3: BFE (plus Jewel of the Nile DLC pack) and Se­ri­ous Sam: Dou­ble D XXL.

All four games of­fer some­thing slightly dif­fer­ent, but re­volve around shoot­ing the liv­ing sh*t out of ev­ery E.T un­lucky enough to come across your path, as you try to take down the evil Men­tal and his armies. One of the new­est, and ar­guably best ti­tles, is

Se­ri­ous Sam 3 which was re­leased orig­i­nally in 2011 and can see up to 16 play­ers fight­ing co­op­er­a­tively on­line or, if you pre­fer to play with your mates face to face, a handy four-per­son split screen.

If you’re feel­ing nos­tal­gic, you can trans­port your­self back to the early Noughties when the Playsta­tion 2 ruled the world.

Se­ri­ous Sam First En­counter re­lives the orig­i­nal sto­ry­line, but adds im­proved colour and de­tail.

And if you want to get se­ri­ously old skool, there’s also a bonus ‘DD XXL’ game of­fer­ing a no-frills, 2D way to mur­der those space-bound bas­tards with your mates.
