Buffy the Vampire Slayer Box art When this game was launched, i did'nt take it because i want to reserve for the good ones. After a while, when i went to the EB Store look at it, so i give it a try. Guess what ? I was totally hype about it. This title is gonna make you think that beat-em-up games has evolve, embellish and improve in the new way. You gonna not regret it when you buy this one. Buffy has a sense of humor and i like it.


This game is not so difficult in this genre. You are Buffy, the vampire slayer that all creatures must fear when you are there. The first mission was about training to make you more get into the control of Buffy but i can tell you something, it's like pick-and-play. Your arsenal of weapons are not so large but i think it will deal for the game. They are 13 missions, each one have three chapters for you to discover. The best thing in the game in my opinion is about the enemy's AI. They are so smart. In the old method all you need to do is just always push the button as fast as you can but now, you must be a little tricky to fight the ennemies. Trying to fight always the same moves or combinations of moves to get ride of a ennemy does'nt work. Theses one block, move back, wait, fight in a group, surprise you even use your own weapons to counter you. Mostly in the game, the enemy is a vampire. Every one know that vampire has great powers. They act really like a vampire. What i mean is when they a stuck in a lower level than you, they will jump to you, they suck your blood, they ressurect too after stun for a while. That is what i want in a game of vampirism !!!


The graphics are not so over top like the highly-anticipated title (Halo) but is a punch also. Especially most of the part in the game, it's set in night but there was a reason for that. There are also really cool stuffs in the special effects. When you sink you stake in the heart of your ennemy, they will disapear in are spectacular method by desintegrate in ashes and leave you a magical blue or red ball. Another thing is when you fight with zombies or undead forms, you can dismembering anything.


The Dolby 5.1 Digital Sound add a new way to this game. The music are not always there, it's only on when you must fight something really important in your the quest.


Suggestions:
You have done great work for all gamers. Make another title like this and you can be my favorite's developer of game. Next time try to add blood, i know this will change your rating (Mature only) but the realistic must be there. More weapons and levels will appreciate. :)


Overall: 10.0 / 10
