Trivia:
Sarah Michelle Gellar was invited to reprise the role of Buffy Summers for this game, but declined because she wanted to see the script, and hadn't.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Spike punches Ethan unconscious with no ill effect, but Spike had a behavioral modification chip implanted in his brain (which should have caused him pain when he did any harm to humans).See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Buffy:A surprise party? Whose idea was this? I'll kill ya. Not that I appreciate the thought, but who invited the vampires?
Xander Harris:Don't look at me. I wanted Anya to jump out of the cake. Wait, that was for *my* birthday.
Buffy:And much as we'd like to hear *that* story.

This game is HORRENDOUS!, 12 February 2014
Author: WakenPayne from Valhalla

Okay, I did a previous review of this game and after revisiting it I have decided to talk about it again. It seems to me that the developers focused more on the story of the thing but also put forth game-play that makes the idea of having all your ammo in one pool in Deus Ex Invisible War seem like the innovative bullet-time of Max Payne.

So what is the story? You play Buffy, Spike, Willow, Faith, Xander (really?) and... I swear to god I'm not kidding, the Vampire hunting doll from the fifth episode. Together they stop Ethan Rayne from causing chaos by raising Kakistos because he is now... What Caleb was in Buffy Season 7. Faith joins the group after escaping from jail (which we never see... Don't the developers think that might have made a level?) and must put together the body parts of Ethan's ancestor - Cassandra, who was not only a slayer but stopped The First (how?).

The level design is a complete joke. After the tutorial level you must repair a sundial, which will open a tomb door, which gives you the key to where you want to go, not to mention that 2/3 of the sundial pieces are in previous areas of the game... Because this is what you associate with Buffy right? Repairs of ancient marble clocks.

The controls are awful too. The last time I played this game I couldn't master the ability to possess enemy vampires... Does that sound awesome? Well instead you constantly cause shock-waves or light them on fire. The aiming technique of the Crossbow is so awkward and time consuming that fighting the enemies bare handed is better, the tutorials appear so late that you would have already figured out how to do these moves and the selection system is so bad that you will consistently return to the stake. The camera is also so awkward that you can't see what it is you're hitting half the time. Worse yet is that the developers added no map of the level when from the very first level YOU NEED A MAP OF THE AREA IN DESIGN'S AS BIG AS THIS.

Worse yet is the inability to save your game at checkpoints or during the levels. I wouldn't mind this so much if the levels were short. Most of them take at least half an hour to complete, some even over an hour. I mean you could save during levels in Doom, a game made 10 years prior to this - Why couldn't this? I mean... half an hour of this? I really wanted to know how I beat the entire game until the third last level the previous time.

That leaves the voice acting. The main players from the show... They're okay. But with the replacements, they are so bad I mistook them for having Tommy Wiseau as an acting coach. They are borderline soap opera quality, especially the Willow replacement. The one-liners that are uttered throughout your playing of the game are not that funny, worse yet is that I would believe you if you told me that they were only there for collectively 10 minutes to say all of them.

But the most obnoxious part of the game is the extras. Cast and crew interviews from the show such as Joss Whedon, James Marsters, Nicholas Brendon, Amber Benson and the person who played Ethan Rayne. All of them talk about how more people would spend time playing Buffy because it would have such an engaging storyline that if you don't understand, you'll obsess over it.

Where do I begin? I can name games off the top of my head that have better stories made around the same time and are much more engaging. The Max Payne games, The Star Wars: Jedi Knight games, The Deus Ex games... Already I found nearly 10 examples. And that comment about how people will stay there until the end no matter what... Usually in my experience of playing these games, That mentality usually comes around the end of the game, It wouldn't do that from the tutorial level because that's how early it is when you point out the problems with this game.

Buffy could have made an awesome video game. I honestly think that with the right people, time and effort that this game could have been good. But this game honestly ranges from boring to pathetically bad. The story wasn't THAT bad so in all honesty... This deserves a 2/10. I wanted to find something... At least decent in this game other than the story, I found nothing.
