Critic Reviews for Serious Sam's Bogus Detour

Serious Sam: Bogus Detour does a fantastic job of distilling the Serious Sam formula down into a twin-stick shooter. While there are a couple hitches along the way, the game is a surprisingly robust package and a lot of quality content for a great price.

If you're looking for the latest graphics and a deep, gritty game, you won't find it here. However, you will find carnage, power-ups, weapons galore, a well thought-out multiplayer mode, hundreds of bullet sponges to mow down, huge levels and tonnes of style. It's an irreverent retro murder fest that doesn't take itself too seriously and manages to not only be funny, but most importantly be FUN - because that's why we play games, isn't it? For fun? PEW PEW!

A reductionist shooter that maintains the over-the-top spirit of Serious Sam, for the most part.

Serious Sam's Bogus Detour is a surprisingly large shooter that takes the long-running arcade FPS and translates it perfectly into a new genre.

Crackshell has managed to drip every ounce of Serious Sam and rework it into the twin-stick shooter formula with immaculate imitation of the first-person shooter its based upon.

Your enjoyment of Serious Sam's Bogus Detour is going to depend on your enjoyment of overly difficult shooters and your need for multiplayer. If the idea of having to traverse very large levels with the distinct possibility of starting all over when you lose all of your lives infuriates you, then this might not be the best game to play. If you want to engage in co-op or adversarial multiplayer, then make sure to convince friends to buy it since the online population is more interested in creating stages and mods than actually playing the core game. For everyone else, Bogus Detour is a solid shooter that is challenging, engaging and worth checking out.
