My girlfriend (the Buffy fan in the family) bought the game originally, but some of the game's quirks drove her away from playing it (so I had to play it while she watched). First, the floating third-person camera is controllable with the right analog stick, but in confined spaces it will not fully rotate around your character, or will offer too cramped a view to be useful. Second, vampires have a way of spawning right behind your character in a previously empty area and attacking you from behind -- this is quite startling until you get used to it.
Third, combat is the essence of the game, but has an unpolished feel to it. It's quite easy to get out of position so that you're punching air while a vampire attacks you from behind. I guess that's part of the challenge, but it happens often enough to be annoying (and I'm no newbie to fighting games). And I would usually just jam the kick button, which sometimes would do little damage, and other times would result in a spinning roundhouse kick which would knock the enemy to the ground -- it was never clear to me why I'd get one result or the other.Read more ›
I have a few complaints about the game, however. First, Spike looked like my great aunt Ollie. Many of the other characters looked very inacurate, as well. For instance, Anya almost looked annorexic. Her cheeks were so...mushed in. And Willow...yeah, she looks high. And sounds like it, too. I think Xander was the most accurate of all the characters, in my opinion. The phrases that the characters said, as well, annoyed me. I mean, "Just what every girl needs. A nice, long shaft. Wait, that didn't come out right." How long did it take the producers to come up with that? Three minutes? And Willow's were just plain annoying. There was one time when my friend and I were playing it, and something must have glitched in the game because every time she killed something, she'd say the same line: "Now that was just creepy." Also, Willow's little, "Ooh! A medi-kit! Now I can be Nurse Willow! Tara's gonna love this..." ...No, nein, nicht. Don't think so. Though, I must say that some of the lines were quite amusing. For example, Buffy's little "BUFFY SMASH! GRRR!" just made my cousin and I burst into laughter. And the artificial intelligence was amazing. Though very very frustrating at the time, but eh, I got over it.Read more ›
I'll get to the gameplay, etc., in a moment, but will first comment on the story. It does have more of a comic-book feel than the series generally does, but by videogame standards, it's well above-average, and really quite entertaining, mostly in the comedic sense (self-referential humour fully intact). Given that the villain is essentially Ethan Rayne, though, don't expect much in the way of emotional resonance...it's BtVS-lite in that regard. Now, onto the gameplay...
The fighting engine is remarkably deep, at least for the Buffy and Faith characters, which you play 65% of the time. The various combos available to you seem endless, though you'll probably do reasonably well with mindless button-mashing, so it's equally suitable for novices and more advanced gamers who like to mix it up. The staking effect is extremely satisfying, especially for fans of the series. Willow's more enjoyable to use later in the game (the Mall stage), with all of her spells firmly intact (though you'll likely fall back on the homing missle most of the time), Xander's relies more on weapons (of which there are an abundance), Spike inflicts the most damage, and Sid (used only in half of the hospital stage) is a riot to behold, with his rapid fists of fury.
Character models are good but not exceptional, and the voice work is generally solid (Anya's voice double being the only one totally off-the mark, and Willow's, though well-intentioned, sounding too much like an affectation).Read more ›
