Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds Review

Buffy doing what she does best.

★★★★

Created as a missing episode from Season 5, Buffy’s second assault on the console market has her doing what she does best — wearing impractical outfits and going medieval on the undead. This time she’s got her friends along for the ride.

Essentially it’s another Tomb Raider-style puzzle- solver with added stakes and holy water — but the monster-mashing action should go down well with fans and its multi-character action is more ambitious than Buffy’s original Xbox adventure. The involvement of the show’s writers and some of the cast gives added authenticity, while the ability to control characters other than Buffy — all beautifully animated — prevents boredom from setting in, even if Xander is as useless as ever.
