Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds (Sony PlayStation 2, 2003)
About this product
|Buffy the Vampire Slayer makes her PlayStation 2 debut in a game written by comic book authors and novelists Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski. Played from a third-person perspective, the title emphasizes hand-to-hand combat against a variety of vampires and demonic entities. Being the resourceful lass that she is, Buffy can stake her foes using whatever means are at her disposal, from chairs found at the Magic Box to shovels at the local graveyard. The storyline takes place around the time period of the fifth season, which means Spike is now an unofficial member of the Scoobie Gang and Willow is well on her way to becoming a full-fledged witch.|
Things take a turn for the worse when Sunnydale undergoes a temporal shift, thanks to the dabbling of one mischievous Ethan Rayne, causing an instability between time and space. Ethan has awoken the primordial evil known as The First, and now Buffy and the gang must find a way to prevent the world from plunging into chaos. Not only will players fend off werewolves, vampires, and zombies while trying to prevent the next apocalypse, but also villains like Adam and Kakistos. Players will battle through such familiar locales as The Magic Box, Initiative Base, Sunnydale Hospital, and downtown Sunnydale through 12 levels of action.
Players will experience levels as Buffy, Willow, Xander, Faith, Spike, and even Sid the Dummy, a character first introduced during the television show's first season. Each character possesses distinct abilities and attributes, such as Willow's power to cast spells, as the gang begins the daunting task of cleaning up Sunnydale's tainted streets. Rather than choosing different characters at the beginning of each stage, players will have to follow each level's storyline using whichever character the game requires of them at any given time.
Chaos Bleeds also includes support for up to four players. Multiplayer game types include Survival, Bunny Catcher, Slayer Challenge, and Domination. Survival is a deathmatch variant, with various pick-ups available that can help or hinder characters. Bunny Catcher is a race to collect as many bunnies as possible, with different colored rabbits worth a varying amount of points. Slayer Challenge has a character summoning vampires and then trying to dust them, with the other players controlling the enemies. Domination, however, has characters vying for control over magical pentagrams.

If you love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you're definitely going to love playing this game!<br><br>A great thing about this game is that at the beginning it explains how you do certain moves, open doors, and things like that. Also the voices of the characters are authentic. Spike, Giles, Xander, Tara, Ethan Rayne, and Faith are all voiced by the actual actors. The actresses Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan (Buffy and Willow) were not available to do the voice overs, but the characters in the game are still very very well done, very close to the original actresses, you can barely tell the difference. Two characters that you get to see again is Sid the Dummy and Kakistos.<br><br>The levels get harder and harder during the game, and sometimes it gets a little tricky to complete one of them. On average it takes between 1 hour - 2 hours to complete a level. During different levels you can also play different characters, you don't get stuck with playing as Buffy the whole game. And as you beat each level you unlock bonus features like interviews and voice overs from the actors.<br><br>Give it a try!Read full review

VERY GOOD GAME
I purchased this game to play off and on as I do not normally play a lot of video games and I found it was a very well done game in that you have unlimited continues and are very hard to kill in the game. You can run around in the missions with zero health as long as you avoid being thrown by a vampire, bit by a vampire, or have poison spit on you. This game gets progressively harder which keeps a good challenge level. It is also a very good game to play only from time to time as I have no trouble following the storyline even after a 2 week haitus. Also the levels are extremely detailed and large, each one seems to take me about 1 to 1.5 hours to finish the first time. Very enjoyable and fun to play and the voice acting is excellent.

Love Buffy and her video games.wish they make a new one.
I am the biggest Buffy fan ever so it was great to get this game at a decent price. It is a lot different than playing games on PS3 cause the graphics and movements suck compared but that helps with the nostalgic effect.
