The Bottom Line

Buffy, you save us from vamps, demons, zombies, and now from so many bad TV to video game releases. Thank you for breaking the curse of the dreaded licensed video game. Your game rocks!

Guide Review - Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Buffy the Vampire Slayer rules. Sorry, there's simply no other way to put it. If you like action games, or if you like the show you'll be thrilled by it. If you like both, then you'll be ecstatic.

Buffy is a solid video game. It dazzles with great graphics, bone chilling sounds, fun puzzles, and an oddly satisfying combat system. It's hard to explain, but once you knock a vampire into an oncoming train, you'll understand.

Perhaps more than any other video game I've played, Buffy actually feels related to the show. There was a lot of love poured into making it authentic. The levels could easily pass for Sunnydale; the high school and the library are spot on.

Buffy is hands down my favorite movie / TV show to video game translation.
