Personal Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds After reading several reviews, mine is probably going to sound much like the general consensus of the other reviewers. However, just to throw in my two cents, this game very enjoyable to a fan of the show and possibly not a fan who likes action/RPGs. Im not going to go in GREAT detail describing every aspect of the game, but here is a small synopsis of the major concepts. Voice Acting:
  2. 2. I agree with the voice acting comments reflecting on how Anya is completely off mark. However, Hannigans voice actor does sound a lot like her, and probably is close as someones going to get without actually having the unique voice of Aly, herself. The voice actor for Buffy is superb. Being the huge fan I am, I found myself not even questioning that it wasnt SMG speaking. The others are the original cast themselves so, of course, theyre wonderful. The Games Plot: The storyline is in true Buffyverse fashion. As I recall, this ga me actually represents a lost episode that was going to go into the actual series. Im pretty sure it was season six because of a reference that Ethan Rayne makes in the game about season sevens big bad, but it could be set in season five. In any case, the cutscenes are very compelling and the script writing great. The Levels: Because of the fact that the Scooby gang gets seperated early on, each level has a different member fighting. Such as Buffy in the Magic Box, Xander in the old High School, Faith in an old Quarry House, Willow at the Sunnydale Mall, and etc. There is even help from Sid the dummy who you get to control at some point during the game. Sid is surprisingly fast and fun to play. Also, the boss on each level is specific to the character that youre playing with. The Characters: The playable characters include Buffy, Willow, Xander, Spike, Faith, and Sid the dummy. Each characters have different abilities and controls. Id say Buffy, Faith, and have the closest if not the same controls. Buffy and Faith are the easiest to manuever, in my opinion. Next, Spike and Xander are similar, although I found Xander a little weaker in hand-to-hand combat. Willow was the most fun. Although, hand-to-hand combat is an option, you can cast spells on your enemies that include Shockwaves, Fireballs, Sun Spells, Homing Missiles, Shielding, Possession, and Sonic Blast. Each player has similar objectives which include your general hack- and-slash enemies technique, but also some puzzle solving missions tha t range from easy to considerably complex. As quoted by another reviewer, By the zoo level, we lost our patience and found a walkthrough online. I guess we were supposed to know that we had to grab the top of an automatic fence as it lifts up to get to the other side of a room??? I know I found myself going on the internet during Xanders High School mission and Buffys Zoo one because I couldnt figure out some of the puzzle work such as that grabbing gate move. Overall, it wasnt that bad, and Im not much of a gamer at all. Negative Aspects: The camera angle is tricky at times. Sometimes the game wont let you turn 180 degrees with the right analog stick. Id chalk it up to a typical
  3. 3. game gliche. Its not severe, but can be frustrating. Also, each level has Continuation Points that get activated when you reach a certain room or place, so if you die, you will come directly to that spot. However, the game actually only SAVES after each level is completely finished. So if youve faught your way all the way until the room before the Boss and it says Continue Point Activated dont turn off your game thinking that youll restart back at the point. I spent a frustrated night thinking that Id finish the level in the morning but found out that I had to start at the beginning of the level all over again when I turned my PS2 back on. Also, there isnt an automatic lock on the enemy that your fighting. I spent many a night punching the air and kicking walls while vampires hit me directly every time. Some of the enemies require you to stake them before they die whether they be a vampire or weird creature from Buffys zoo level. I never really understood why certain Cyborgs from Spikes Initiative level bit Spikes neck like a vampire either, but those are small faults th at really dont bring the game down. I didnt much care for the Multi-player option in the game though. Positive Aspects: The Bonus Features are great fun to watch. Several actor voice-overs get unlocked after completing certain levels of the game. I loved Amber Bensons and James pieces. Those unlockables are more fun to watch than a lot of the extras on my actual Buffy DVD seasons. Also, the games humor is what kept me thriving onward during sometimes long missions. Through-out the game, the characters would make small comments about objects, enemies, and new places that were entirely in character. Xander: *picks up a weapon* Now. If I could just find a monster with a bulls-eye on its chest. Willow: *finds a Medical pack* A medi-pack! Now I can play nurse. Taras going to love that. Buffy: *tries to open a locked door* Locked. Mom always said my natural charisma would open doors. Just not that one. Its small things that which really make the game enjoyable. I also liked the fact that while playing a certain Scoobie member, their counter -part would give them instructions on performing certain tasks. For example, a voice- over from Giles would instruct Buffy to do certain missions or Tara would instruct Willow on how to perform helpful spells. I know many people complained that the graphics were not above and beyond, but I thought they were pretty good. Also, I would much rather prefer that game designers spend more money on making the game interesting, complex, and enjoyable than focussing solely on how the game looks and not caring about the storyline. (SPOILERS ABOUT THE GAMES BOSSES) .
  4. 4. . . And honestly, who wouldnt love a game where Xander interacts with bunnies while fighting Anyanka in a strange parallel universe? Or Willow fighting with magic against Vampire Tara spouting phrases like, I-I know y- y-you think shyness is sexy, but this time... you get to be the submissive one. . . . (END SPOILERS) Therefore, even with the slight gliches that this game has (all games have SOME gliches), I still rate this game Five Stars. If it is how the game makes you FEEL while playing it that matters, this game definitely deserves the best rating. eBay is the ULTIMATE shoppers paradise.
