  1. Stands out in the action-adventure genre by providing well devised combat and level design meshed with a great Buffy story. If you're not familiar with the TV show, you can still have a hell of a good time dusting vampires and kicking demon ass.
  2. A solid mix of action and puzzle solving, Chaos Bleeds features a fairly robust fighting engine. Sure, it's not "Soul Calibur II," but there are plenty of counters, combos, and blocks to keep players busy. [Oct 2003, p.32]

    Firstly, I am a huge fan of Buffy. I still follow the continuation of the comics but I am NOT a delusional fan. As a game its very disappointing. The voice actors were all good except Willows (which was horrible!) and the plot wasn't too bad but the entire gameplay was extremely redundant. You won't find yourself doing anything different by the end of the game and there's no character growth (leveling and getting stronger) so you feel like you're not accomplishing much. Its "fruitless" as Joyce Summers would say. Its not a bad game though. Its a very safe and simple fighting/adventure game. Good for all ages. Just don't expect anything amazing. Full Review »
