An excellent interpretation of the show
24 August 2002 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I waited forever to get "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" for XBox. The only complaint I have about the game was the amount of times its release was pushed back.

Every character from the show, with the exception of Sarah Michelle Gellar, recorded their voice to be used. In conversation, they sound a bit flat, but it's an action game not Shakespeare.

Speaking of action, this game DELIVERS! Buffy is almost tougher in the game than she ever was in the show (with the exception of the final fight with Glory). She has an arsenal of moves that is so diverse it never gets tiring to pound the undead to dust. She can use stakes, crossbows, shovels, sledgehammers, and even a Super Soaker filled with holy water and hellfire.

The plot is hardly imaginative, but as it is representative of the Buffyverse it's perfect for the game. Basically, the Order of Orelius (the villains from season one) are trying to resurrect The Master. They drag Spike into the action and a surprisingly mute Drusilla. Angel's in the game, too, with David Boreanez voicing him, but he rarely says anything.

The graphics are great! They give more depth to Sunnydale than the show was able to. As a side note to hormone-stricken boys, yes, Buffy looks incredible perky and shaply. In fact, I'd say video game Buffy's a bit more filled out than TV Buffy.

In conclusion, even if you're not a fan of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" but you like action/fighting games, this game will hook you. It may even make you want to sneak a peek at the show. The game makes Buffy seem more action orientated than it usually is. For fans, this game is a must have. You'll definitely enjoy walloping Vampires, demons, and even talkative Spike at one point.

Five out of Five stars!
