Spike and a group of vampires who have been bringing The Master
back to life in a spiritual form. The big bad is now trying
to gather three of the worlds scariest demons, who together
can bring about the destruction of man! As the Slayer, you have
to get down and dirty, killing vamps, demons and zombies alike,
trying to stop this evil plan coming to fruition...
the Vampire Slayer the game, isn't as bad as you think
it might be. Historically TV show to computer game conversions
usually turn out to be something of a let down. However, with
the backing of Electronic Arts, this game lets you enter into
all the fun parts of the show that you normally just watch.
give it a bit more credibility, the game even has the voices
of all of the main cast save for Sarah Michelle Gellar, but
those guys have to be laughing at the computer avatars of
themselves, as the graphics leave a bit to be desired.
As for gameplay, well it is quite addictive and good fun.
The best part of the game has to be the fighting. By jumping
on any close furniture, you can turn a normal chair into a
stake, and you can look for many normal items lying around
to use as a weapon. You'll be amazed how handy a garden rake
can really be!
learn different powerful combo's to use as you go through
the game, and Xander builds you new Slayer equipment which
he gives to you each time you have a gang meeting, back in
great aspect is that many levels are set in areas you will
know well if you are a fan of the show - the school, Angel's
Mansion, the underground church that also happens to be the
Master's lair. Even for those who are not fans, the game is
playable enough for you to pick up and enjoy, even though
Buffy's selection of quips may get a bit irritating if you
sit and play for more than half hour!
points - Buffy's quips - if you are a fan or not, and also
the saving structure. Some levels are quite long and you cannot
save until you complete that area and get to its checkpoint.
This means you may spend some time getting to the end, miss
a step and fall into a crevice and bam! Back to the beginning
to do all that again. The other point is health - you have
to find most of the hidden areas if you want to have a decent
supply of health. Other wise you could end up trying to get
through some very rough encounters with only half a health
bar - that is not an easy feat to accomplish, I tell ya!
