Picking up where Serious Sam: Second Encounter left off, Sam has rocketed off towards the conquered planet of Sirius, the new home of the notorious Mental. While en route, the Great Wizards Council of the nearly eradicated Sirian civilization telepathically contacts Sam to aid him in his quest to destroy Mental and help restore Sirius. He is then sent on a quest to find the fragments of a mystical medallion scattered throughout the galaxy that will bestow Sam with the power to defeat Mental.

While Serious Sam 2 is not one of the most intensive games in our benchmark suite, we can stress the system by enabling HDR.

Like Far Cry, we decided to max out Serious Sam 2 since it is an older game. Never doubt these older games though, when you turn everything up to the maximum, they are still able to give even the most powerful GPUs a run for their money, as you can see.

This is one of the driver issues we saw with the HD 2900 XT - after a driver fix, this should all be sorted out. Being an older game and not as popular, sometimes they are not given as much priority as other games.
