Very Good

Close, but no stake.

Chaos Bleeds does a great job of bringing Buffy from the TV to the console, but it has a few flaws that keep it from being perfect.

First, the aesthetic flaw: voice acting. I understand that the actual actors from the show have other commitments and can't do the video game; the problem comes when the imitation voice actors are 95% close. So close you can almost believe it, but there's something just not quite right. Everything else aesthetic about the game (graphics, story, etc.) is dead on.

Second, the big problem: control. The game does not control as fluidly as it should. Too many times you get jumped by several vamps/demons/whatever and the game continues to do a combo on an already vanquished foe instead of turning to face the next one. A game where everything else is polished nicely just falls flat when the controls aren't as responsive as they should be.

In conclusion, if you're a fan of the show, you'll enjoy the game for being a good approximation of an episode. But if you're a gamer first, you may get frustrated.

Buffy the vampire slayer: chaos bleeds is a good game for with it is, that is a opportunity for fans of the TV show to have a fun and believable game that feels like the show. Chaos Bleeds does tat greatly with good game play and OK voice acting. I game plays as a lost episode of the show and lets you control six characters from the show. The controls are good but the camera sometimes works more against you then with you. Levels are long and missions are sometimes confusing but dusting vampires is fun. So if your a fan of the show play the game and i'll like it, if not don't bother.

i love the buffy series. but the game im iffy about. in chaos the fighting seems...slughish. and the enemies gang up which can be very frustrating. i almost quit the game about 8 times. but the storyline reminds me of a buffy show and they capture the charters personalities well.play if your a buffy fan but if you arent you might want to pass.
