Buffy the Vampire Slayer Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: While most movie/TV series-to-game conversions come out as an utter mess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer succeeds in showing that good things can come from licensed titles if the developers are willing to do their homework and not simply rely on the name. If you are at all interested in action/adventure games or simply enjoy sticking a stake through a supernatural creature every now and then, I do suggest picking up Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Into Liquid Sky
26 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Buffy the Vampire Slayer is based on the popular television series by Joss Whedon staring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Buffy is the Slayer, the chosen one who has the skill and strength to save the world against vampires, demons and other assorted monsters. Set in Sunnydale, where the high school is built on a Hellmouth, Buffy has more than her fair share of badguys to foil. The game is set around the beginning of season three.
  • Pros: Looks, sounds and feels like Buffy, Large, great looking areas, Combat is easy to pick up and fun
  • Cons: Some unrealistic animations, Non-fans may grow tired of Buffy's banter

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Thunderbolt Games
21 February 2003
  • Excerpt: Ah, Buffy. What a wonderful concept: an attractive high school girl kicking vampire ass all over her hometown, eliminating the threat of the vampire underworld all while getting good grades and being a cheerleader. Who would think that a movie like that would be made into a TV show that would actually surpass the movie in terms of fan base and popularity? Not me for one, and I certainly didn’t expect a video game out of it, one that is actually good no less.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Review

GameCritics.com
10 November 2002
  • Excerpt: After the slasher film deluge of the 1980s, horror cinema went through a period of dormancy. Senseless sequels and cheap knockoffs of popular franchises had simply soured the publics taste for all things frightful, and the horror film wouldnt be a viable genre until 1996, when Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson collaborated on Scream . Scream almost single-handedly revitalized the genre.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Second Opinion

GameCritics.com
10 November 2002
  • Excerpt: What I found most fascinating about Mike Bracken's review of Buffy The Vampire Slayer is that we both enjoyed the game equally, but for very different reasons. He wrote that the game is 'incredibly faithful' to the source material. I can't agree with that. While all the surface trappings are present—the show's cast, the faithfully recreated locations—the game is missing something more integral.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The Next Level
16 October 2002
  • Excerpt: Buffy's life as a video game character began back when this title went into development on Sega's Dreamcast. The delays inherent in switching the game from Dreamcast to Xbox are most obvious in the game's timeline. Buffy takes place while the "Scooby Doo gang" is still in high school but after their victory over The Master. Fans of the show will instantly identify this scenario to be in line with the televsion show's third season.

Buffy Slays the Competition

14 October 2002
  • Excerpt: Before I had a chance to play Buffy the Vampire Slayer on the Xbox, I will admit I had not watched the series on a regular basis. I only knew a few things such as Willow being a lesbian with Angel being Buffy's one love interest, despite being a vampire (and eventually leading to his own series), and that Buffy's high school was settled atop a Hellmouth.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The Armchair Empire
21 September 2002
  • Conclusion: Buffy in her tasks. Giles does research, Xander makes weapons, and Willow casts spells. This part of the game was especially enjoyable for me, though it would probably seem a bit dry for players who are not fans of the show and who don’t already understand the idiosyncrasies of the characters.

  • Summary: Well, well, the Slayer's got a cute little digital butt, but be forewarned, step out of line and she'll kick yours into the middle of next week?
