There is always controversy when it comes to a new game especially one that goes outside the box of an IPs usually configuration. Despite the fact that the idea of Serious Sam Double D XXL comes from a classic PC fan favorite people outside of the Serious Sam fans bashed the idea of this game coming to X-Box Live Arcade. Despite numerous upgrades and add-on, gamer’s immediately judged a book by its cover which in life and in gaming you should never do.

My only problem with this game is that their are frame drops in the current build that I thought would be patched by now. I also wish I could connect with my Xbox Live friends and share the fun. Ohh well I can still do that on Serious Sam 3: BFE , which is also available on Xbox Live Arcade if you haven’t copped it yet.

Short And Simple

Fun Factor: 9
Sound Quality: 6
Gameplay: 8
Graphics: 6
Online: The game offers leaderboards but this game is about local co-op and classic shooter fun.

Overall Score : 7

“PLAY IT!” 7/10 Serious Sam fans and classic gaming fans alike will definitely love the fun of Serious Sam Double D XXL.
