Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem

Serious Sam really is the anti-Duke at this point, every time I turn around there is another Serious Sam game. Is this latest Serious Sam THE one to buy or will it make you turn into a headless screaming guy with a bomb?. Read on to find out

Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem is essentially an expansion pack or map pack for previous release Serious Sam 4 (review link).

Siberian Mayhem presents you 5 maps set in glorious Siberia and tasks our hero Sam “Serious” Stone with shooting everything and meeting the curiously voiced locals. 

As mentioned this game runs on the Serious Sam 4 engine and as such doesn’t do anything new in terms of Serious Ass Kicking, aside from a few new weapons and a Mech with a chainsaw, love it. 

If you haven’t played a Serious Sam game before, well allow me to enlighten you, the game is a first person shooter that pits you against giant hordes of aliens fighting for an evil overlord called Mental. The general flow of the game involves you moving from arena to arena, running backwards and taking down these hordes prioritizing the more dangerous aliens with a plethora of things that cause death.

Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem manages to condense the campaign of 4 into 5 stages with more focus on the action and less on the more open world aspects that were shoehorned into the base release. 

The cast of characters Sam meets are weird and wonderful as you would expect and the story is largely inoffensive aside from not really adding anything to the story of 4.

Really aside from a few extra aliens and weapons the expansion pack just does what any good pack used to do. More of what you love in a condensed package and this is exactly what Siberian Mayhem does. 

5 wonderful levels of pure chaos, fun vehicle sections, wise cracks and more enemies than you can physically count. If we could have more gold like this from the franchise I’d feel much better about its future. Bravo Sam!.



A great standalone adventure for a great price and some serious fun
