That's it. I'm calling bullshit on the haters. by Mischief Maker 09/24/2020, 6:47pm PDT
So my system's weird, I have an i9 9900k 8-core CPU, 32 gigs of ram, but a 1660 Super budget GPU (waiting out for a 3000). The game has an autodetect function for graphics performance, and I stuck with the suggested levels (plus I turned off AA out of personal taste). While LOD quality popups are frequent and noticeable in the slow parts, I've been getting a solid 60 fps at 1080p.

Maybe the CPU is the bottleneck, but aside from a crash to desktop while applying too many graphics setting changes at once, I've not had any of the awful bugs all the angriest reviews reported. I've had Serious Sam.

Maybe folks were expecting a nuDOOM reimagining. This is not that. Serious Sam 4 is akin to Overload, in that it's a recreation of a classic FPS' gameplay with modern tech and a few refinements, but not the greatest graphics available at the time.

Anyone who tells you the level design or gameplay is a significant departure from previous games is full of shit. I've been replaying first and second encounter all last month and this is the kind of gameplay they had on offer.

This is purely a matter of taste, but I didn't find the humor "cringeworthy," certainly a lot less than the "crate bus" joke that started Second Encounter. What on Earth would a zoomer who'd never even heard of Old Man Murray have thought seeing that scene for the first time?

I'll write a frontpage review as soon as I finish it, but I'm doing a lot of searching for secrets so I'm taking my time.
