--------------Buffy The Vampire Slayer: - My Walkthrough!----------------
Hello everyone! I will give you all some background information on the character you play, the characters you will encounter during the game, a few of the most essential items, Common enemy's and a look into the missions and levels but don't quote me to that as the order may differ and I may add more as I see fit.
Buffy the vampire slayer is another one of X-box's third person games starring you as Buffy Anne Summers. Buffy is a normal student who lives in a place known to humans as Sunnydale but to demons and the forces of darkness as the Hell Mouth. Buffy is a young blonde but with special powers she has inherited through being the chosen one to fight against all that is evil in the world. In this game you will get to use most of the techniques you see on TV and a few that you donít! But don't worry the controller is easier to use than knife and fork. Buffy interacts with many of the normal people she would on TV such as Giles her faithful watcher and trainer, Willow the witch of the group, Xander well he helps in his own little way, Cordelia the one who should have been born blonde, Angel one of Buffy's undead lovers with a soul who can really deal out damage and finally I will tell you about the big bad Spike. Spike is another one of Buffy's temporary undead lovers but he really isn't her friend in the game no matter what the TV says. I could go into detail about what each character does but the fact is that since you only control Buffy that's a bit of a waste of time. I warn you there are others you will meet but they are the ones you'll recognise and let's face it you love-em all really. As if all these characters you know and adore weren't enough all of their favourite places such as the cemetery, the bronze and the local high school are done using the best graphics I've ever seen bound to impress anyone even if they hate the console they can't argue about the quality it can give.
As you can probably guess by the type of game that your trying to complete there are a few common enemies that are easy to get past if you just know what to do. Vampires come and go through out the game but are easy enough to get of your back by a few methods from fighting him to the ground and staking him, pouring holy water over him, shooting him with a crossbow or just hitting him until he falls into a fire. All these methods sound complicated but they are really easy after you do it for the first time. For example to collect stakes you can either find them lying about the place, Smash a wooden chair or maybe use a pointy wooden object like a snooker cue if it works who's complaining? Just press "Y" to pick it up and "Y" to use it it's as simple as that. If you want to put an item away for saw keeping just store it away using your D-Pad to alternate between them. Another typical enemy to find is a zombie. Zombies are easier than a vampire if that is possible because all you need to do is keep on beating them up until thereís nothing left of them. They literally start to fall apart starting with their head falling off! The only thing is that there are usually more of them and you can't see them coming as they just come straight out the ground. Last but not least I would say that your most likely to find demon dogs but Iím not going to give you a long explanation of how to kill them because it is easy to achieve if you just fire some hell fire at them.
When it comes to beating up vamps and other undead beasts there is no one better than the one you control in your little hands. Buffy knows more than 50 kinds of kicks, punches, jumps and combinations that are easy to do unlike the Tekken games that need a command list to help you remember them! The X-box controller lets you do her most powerful moves with tremendous ease and if you just learn a couple of by heart your sorted for the rest of the game! As well as all these top notch moves she also has so much weaponry that it makes you wish there wasn't a waiting limit for a gun. She has holy water, stakes, a crossbow, and her patented XVS water gun filled with hellfire guaranteed to deal out some serious pain to all who go against her.
This game will keep even a top gamer playing for days to come with over 40 levels and 13 missions it's got all you need to have a great gaming experience. I'm not saying you need to be an intellectual giant to solve all the puzzles and challenges you may come across but they'll keep you on your toes always wanting more. You just have to get into the fact that youíre playing as some sort of super human! You have to think outside normal terms such as the limit of characters strength. If you were playing tomb raider or another kind of RPG you would never think "hmmm let's kick in a wall!" because games like Tomb Raider follow the rules and boundaries of a normal human being however Buffy can kick in tombstones, furniture and walls without even breaking a sweat were as in Lara Croft would be standing there for hours shooting away like some random maniac. Many of the tasks in this game include kicking down walls, breaking barriers, smashing tombstones, boxes and more however many challenges are also completed by lighting torches, pushing levers/buttons and finding that good old fashion item I call a key.
I hope you've enjoyed reading my walk through and if it helps a fellow gamer complete the game a wee bit faster then I'm happy!
