**<3DNews>(https://opencritic.com/outlet/531/3dnews)** – <Денис Щенников>(https://opencritic.com/critic/4050/-) – *Russian* – <7 / 10>(https://3dnews.ru/1021394)

>Technical mess, outdated visuals, awkward 'modern' design decisions… and a lot of fun to play!

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/116/attack-of-the-fanboy)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/6501/brandon-adams) – <3 / 5 stars>(https://attackofthefanboy.com/reviews/serious-sam-4-review/)

>When combat is firing on all cylinders, and the Legion System isn't crashing your PC, Serious Sam 4 is a decent slice of old-school shooter goodness. Yet, in sticking to its guns, Serious Sam 4 ends up being an aggressively mediocre experience.

>It's a simple review for a simple game, folks. Serious Sam 4 doesn't wildly reinvent the formula; and really, it doesn't need to. There's plenty of room for old school style FPS games in an ocean of looter shooters and games-as-a-service titles.

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/421/gameskinny)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/5749/jordan-baranowski) – <8 / 10 stars>(http://www.gameskinny.com/fp5kb/serious-sam-4-review-ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

>Serious Sam 4 is a delightfully old-school first-person shooter that doesn't bring a ton of new stuff to the table but still hits all the right notes.

>Serious Sam 4 is easily the richest game in the series, expanding on the character and his world while not holding back on the action that's been the major draw from the earliest days.

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/162/pc-gamer)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/709/tyler-wilde) – <71 / 100>(https://www.pcgamer.com/serious-sam-4-review/)

>Mowing down thousands of aliens in Vatican City is worth doing at least once.

>Delightfully chaotic and ruggedly lovable, this is a decidedly old-fashioned shooter that succeeds on the principle of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it.'

————-

**<Player2.net.au>(https://opencritic.com/outlet/520/player2-net-au)** – (https://www.player2.net.au/2020/09/serious-sam-4-lets-do-the-time-warp-again)

>What you see is what you get with Sam’s fourth adventure. There are no surprises here but there is comfort to be found in decimating wave after wave of alien nasties while cracking bad one-liners

————-

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/577/powerup-)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/3173/leo-stevenson) – <8.8 / 10>(https://powerup-gaming.com/2020/09/24/serious-sam-4-review-pc-why-so-serious/)

>It may be a throwback to another era of gameplay and mechanics. It may not have the bells and whistles and feature creep of other modern shooters and it may be simple but it’s damned good.

————-

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/338/saving-content)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/2142/scott-ellison-ii) – <4 / 5 stars>(https://www.savingcontent.com/2020/09/24/serious-sam-4-review/)

>If you haven’t tried the Serious Sam games, now’s the time. This entry truly starts at the beginning, serving as a great jumping off point for anyone to get acquainted. It’s a return of the classic run’n’gun first-person shooter with some damn funny punchlines, and Croteam gives it new life with a story and improvements all around. Serious Sam 4 is resplendent, with astronomical hordes of enemies to dispatch by devastating and varied weaponry – this is Croteam’s best shooter yet.

>Serious Sam 4 shows a repetitive and bland level design with no fresh solutions for modern players. It is not an evolution for the series, nor what a 2020 shooter should be.

————-

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/329/techraptor)** – <7.5 / 10>(https://techraptor.net/gaming/reviews/serious-sam-4-review)

>Serious Sam 4 succeeds where it needs to, and fails where it's not really all that important. An unchanging series that is a must for fans.

————-

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/304/wccftech)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/1914/kai-powell) – <7.3 / 10>(https://wccftech.com/review/serious-sam-4-pc-review-only-room-for-one-badass-on-this-planet/)

>Serious Sam 4 takes us back to a simpler time in first-person shooters, where massive guns and well-timed one liners make up the bulk of the action. There's a bit of jank that's impossible to miss and Croteam isn't breaking any new ground here but Serious Sam 4 is a great way to just shut off any critical thinking and blast away at a few thousand aliens for an afternoon.

————-

**(https://opencritic.com/outlet/515/windows-central)** – (https://opencritic.com/critic/7534/zackery-cuevas) – <2.5 / 5 stars>(https://www.windowscentral.com/serious-sam-4-review)

>Serious Sam 4 is a very good game in an underwhelming package. There's no doubt that the relentless carnage and large levels hit the sweet spot of old-school FPS charm in the solo and co-op modes. It feels good to shoot, dodge and scramble to pick up items at a frantic pace. The various bugs, long load times, and lackluster presentation drag things down significantly. It is well worth playing if you need a classic shooter fix, but be prepared for rough times until a few patches come into play.
