Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Overall: As I said before, Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the XBOX will not follow in the footsteps of other tv/movie tie in games. Buffy has proven itself as a successful and great series, and now the XBOX game carries the tradition of surprising some and astounding others. The game others a tremendous mix of horbat,secrets,replay and much, much more. Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the XBOX is DEFINATELY the sleeper hit of the YEAR!

Gameplay: Buffy the Vampire Slayer offers a wide variety of gameplay elements for a game like this. It has a great A.I. ( !&%$@#* you The Collective for making some hard enemies!), amazing fighting engine (combos galore, more than some fighting games!), great story (Joss Whedon.. I bow to you) and a mix of puzzle/action/humor/ and horror. Whether you want to spend an hour chatting with the gang and hearing the actual TV STARS talk back, or spending the whole day battling demons and FEELING what it is like to stake a vampire, your going to be HAPPY you bought this game. Buffy the Vampire Slayer has great gameplay features, and even has a secret ARENA MODE for 2 players to duke it out! What more can you ask for? Buffy has it all!!!!!!

Graphics: The graphics in Buffy the Vampire Slayer are simply amazing. So many things can be on the screen at once, no wonder they took 3 years to make this game! The smoke, the fog, the fire and more enhance the visual appeal. What is simply, exactly the same as the series is the disintegration of the vampires! When you stake your first vampire, you can't HELP BUT SMILE! Not to mention the other demons and monsters, each model is carefully made out to be detailed and grusome. The heroes are near perfect models of the gang themselves. The environments are huge and detailed, the cutscenes are amazing and the entire package is great. This is one REALLY AMAZING graphical achievement!

Audio: The greatest thing about this game is the sound. The award-winning music composer makes this game creepy and fun at the same time. The music speeds up when action starts, and slows down when you are alone.. cool! The characters are voiced by the TV stars themselves (sans Sarah), and as usual, give great performances! The grunts, groans and screams are great, the backround score is amazing! This game makes my ears smile, and you WON'T be disappointed at all!

Suggestions: Multiplayer adventure mode, lighter tone, but other than that, MAKE MORE BUFFY GAMES!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!

Overall Score: 10.0 / 10 Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon

Overall: It's Bruce Lee, one of the greatest fighters of all time, if not THE greatest. I wonder what he would have done to the developers of this "game" if he were still alive. Sadly, this game falls short of a legend, and once again adds to the long list of games that are horribly made from a license. I guess it's up to Buffy the Vampire Slayer to finally end the trend that all games made from licenses are bad. And nothing Fishy here, this game needs some improvements, but its not the worst game on the XBOX (thats not saying a lot). And no, I can hold my own against these enemies. The game is not good, period. I guess some people can't see that, and are too busy defending it that they don't realize it's not worth 10$, let alone 50$. I feel like this game was too easy, and I don't suck at games. Yeah, I'm sure if I had the brain of a monkey and a half, I could have fun with this game... the first time around. There is no reason to pick it up again. Anyone who likes this game must be a regular at Blockbuster, because this is a RENTAL, if not a "stay away from forever" game. So, no I don't suck and yes I can hold my own against enemies (considering the enemies here are easy as heck, I didn't realize Bruce had it so easy, no wonder he's unbeatable, because if his enemies were as easy as these, I would be unbeatable too.) If you want to ask the question, "What killed Bruce Lee?", well, if he were still alive today, this game's horrendous quality would sure be the cause of death.

Gameplay: The gameplay in this game is pretty simple. A beat-em-up mostly, no puzzle solving, at least I haven't noticed anything. You BUY special moves, which is a pretty stupid idea if you ask me. You should be getting exp, or you should start with everything, you ARE Bruce Lee for God's sake. I'm pretty sure Bruce didn't buy his moves, because that would totally ruin his whole idea of training and whatnot. Buying moves? Maybe if this were another game, but this is Bruce Lee. They did not do much right to fit what we know of Bruce Lee, a bad mistake.

Graphics: After playing this game, I started wondering if this was XBOX. The graphics are very, very bad. Choppy and unsatisfying, this put's the XBOX to shame since Kabuki Warriors, although not as bad as that game either. The areas around are somewhat good & large, but nothing special, and it doesn't touch the graphics of Halo or DOA. It's like they touched up some models with colors and thats it.

Audio: The sound is probably the only good thing this offers. Sound samples of Bruce's yells and calls are very great. They add what the game can't, a feeling of playing like Bruce Lee. The sound is very simple, but not as realistic as I was hoping. Sounds from enemies and the voice acting are nice, and so are attack hits and crashes, very nice. Let me emphasize, the sound is the only thing good about the game, nothing like hearing the yells and screams from Bruce Lee.

Suggestions: Try not to upset the spirit of Bruce Lee once again, he'll get his revenge. Get Buffy the Vampire Slayer when it comes out, then follow that and maybe you'll make a better game off Bruce Lee. After playing it longer, I realized I have no choice but to trade this in for something else. Hopefully people won't make the mistake of buying this game, in which YOU developers should have spent a little more time on. How can you ruin Bruce Lee like this? :(

Overall Score: 3.0 / 10 Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding

Overall: This is one great game. The visuals, the sounds, the environments, almost everything. The large selection of clothes and the large selection of boarders are very vast. Nothing like soaring down your favorite mountainside while jammin' to your favorite song!

Gameplay: The gameplay is pretty easy, just straightforward snowboarding, to impress publicity photographers and whatnot. The controls are really easy to learn, and you get more moves after a while. Once you learn moves, the game gets easier. But this game has one big problem, its HARD AS HECK. After you get some levels done and things get opened up, it all seems to stop. Because you don't know what to do, you seem to have completed everthing, expect those couple ones that seem IMPOSSIBLE. The game is VERY frustrating, taking me back to the Sega days in which games were very frustrating. Other than that, the game is very smooth and very fun (when your not throwing the controller across the room).

Graphics: The game is VERY, VERY beautiful. The snow effects are great, and the environment is VERY large and amazing looking. The visuals are very close to being as good as Halo, but what game has Halo's visuals? I can't get over how nice the game looks. The colors are vivid, pure and crisp.

Audio: The soundtrack here has A LOT of songs, but sadly for me, I don't like the songs they give! Luckily, you can include you own soundtrack, and that is just what I did. Playing to your favorite tracks is a lot of fun. The sound effects are great, and the voice clips are nice also.

Suggestions: Make the game easier and MORE FUN!!! I haven't played it in a while, and that is because I am getting NOWHERE.

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10
