The series famous for relentless intensity has returned bigger,
better looking and more frantic than ever before. Sam Stone
is back to rescue the universe one bullet at a time against
overwhelming hordes of time travelling enemies in Serious
Sam II. Built from the ground up with a completely new
engine, Serious Sam II delivers a shot of adrenaline
to the hearts of first person shooter fans across the world...

fire button while running around like a loon.
thing that's worth mentioning is that there is a rather embarrassing
typo (I assume) regarding the first 'vehicle' you can travel
on. When you approach the dinosaur type creature near the
start of the game you are given the option to "enter"
heart, Serious Sam II is a good old fashioned FPS with
very few surprises. Nothing more, nothing less.
