The game world's most over the top action hero, Sam Stone, is back to face overwhelming odds in Serious Sam II.

The original Serious Sam was a surprise hit thanks to its frantic action and lighthearted feel. Serious Sam II is scheduled for release the second half of this year for the Xbox and PC.

Players can expect more over the top action in Serious Sam II, developers Croteam CEO Roman Ribaric says. ""Our second generation Serious Engine allows us to create characters with over 100 times more detail than the last game. This has allowed us to create huge, lush environments and even crazier enemies than before, without having to scale back the gameplay in any way. Gamers can rest assured that with the capabilities of our new engine, we're not only going to match the record we set with the first Serious Sam for the most enemies on screen at one time, we're going to surpass it."
