While Croteam are busy putting the finishing touches on the next full-fledged "Serious Sam" title, "Serious Sam 3: BFE," the developers have allowed a few indie studios to have access to the brand. The first of those groups has come up with a 2D side-scrolling shooter that will grab your attention thanks to an entirely unique weapon system, but is there any real depth to "Serious Sam: Double D" beyond gun-stacking?

Playing a "Serious Sam" game felt a little weird at first. The franchise has always found its comparisons to "Duke Nukem," and after that series' fall from grace earlier this year, the prospect of playing another testosterone-fueled, retro shooter sounded less than appealing. Still, where Duke has long felt the need to accentuate the action with nearly grotesque misogyny, Sam has always just been about one thing: having a blast killing an insane amount of aliens.

After spending some time with a preview build of "Serious Sam 3: BFE," I can tell you that while Sam is still seriously the same, he's also still seriously fun.

Serious Sam

The "Serious Sam" franchise was born out of an era of video games where it was common to ask just how many guns a game had, and if the answer was below 100, that game was written off as edutainment. Those days of mindless FPS games are mostly behind us, but "Serious Sam" continues to truck on alongside "Duke Nukem Forever," waving the flag for all things stupid and exploding. You may already know that "Serious Sam 3: BFE" is sticking to the core FPS model, but there's another "Sam" game on the way that's more of a side-scrolling, "Contra"-style shooter. That game is "Serious Sam: Double D," and it has a feature which heralds a new age of stupid/awesome shooters.

Serious Sam HD

In 2001, Croteam did an admirable job of plopping the twitch mechanics of "DOOM" into a not-so-serious shooter called "Serious Sam: The First Encounter." Its mind numbing-hypersonic pace, frenetic enemies, and the flippant protagonist won over critics and made a name for the studio. In 2010, Croteam hopes to reintroduce us all to the game, this time with crisper visuals and co-op in the XBLA version of "Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter."
