Summary: . As you can imagine, the goal of the game is to defeat evil in the town of Sunnydale, California. Of course you’re defeating evil in the form of vampires. You’ll need a trusty stake to kill these baddies and as Buffy Summers you’ll have to get by with a little help from your friends.
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.
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.
Conclusion: Now you know all there is to it about Buffy. If you buy it, you can certainly expect to get your money's worth. The mentioned graphic and sound issues are easily outshined by the addictive gameplay.
Pros: Easy to get into. Good camera angling, striking atmosphere... The combat is the best part of the game and you have the juicy animations, excellent models, a well-balanced control system, etc;
Cons: For me the story was a bit week. And Buffy should have more to say during the game. Bad aiming mode!
Conclusion: Buffy is probably the best TV-to-game adaptation yet, and although that's probably not much of a recommendation alone, it's a must for fans of the series and a pretty good adventure in its own right.
Conclusion: Do I recommend Buffy? In a word, yes. In several more, it's without doubt the best game of a TV show to date, and despite a few niggles, the absence of Sarah Michelle Gellar and the feel of a PC title, it captures the essence of combat, characters and quests which runs through the series, and it's...
Conclusion: 17 /20 Un grand coup de chapeau à The Collective qui nous sert une soft aux graphismes époustouflants avec une jouabilité exemplaire. Que demandez de plus? Bref, un titre inévitable qui ravira tous les fans de Buffy mais aussi les nostalgiques des bons vieux Beat'em all.
Pros: Graphismes magnifiques, Durée de vie assez longue, Ambiance sonore géniale, Manabilité exemplaire
Excerpt: "Buffy The Vampire Slayer on samannimiseen TV-sarjaan perustuva toimintaseikkailu, jossa sankaritar Buffy potkii epäkuolleita persuksille esikuvalleen uskolliseen tyyliin. Varsin nautittava kokonaisuus ja katsastamisen arvoinen peli pikkuvioistaan huolimatta.
Summary: Se bort fra min siste bemerkelse om spillets kommentarer, og du har et særdeles flott, spennende og vel gjennomført action-spill. Banene er tilstrekklig varierte, selv om de kunne vært litt mer varierte med tanke på grafikk.
