Step into the shoes of Buffy Summers, popular high school student by day, destroyer of the undead by night. In this third-person action/adventure, you are the Chosen One. With an arsenal of weapons including crossbows, shovels, and stakes and over 60 fighting moves and combinations, you will punch, kick, and stake your way through familiar Sunnydale locations like the sunken church, Sunnydale High School, and the Bronze nightclub where you match wits with enemies such as Matereani, Rhakshasa, Spike, and The Master. If you run into trouble, your Watcher Giles and friends Willow, Cordelia, and Xander are on-hand to assist you.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer went through many platforms over its development. It started as a PlayStation game. Development was moved to Windows and Dreamcast later. When Sega pulled Dreamcast support, development was moved to Xbox and the PC version was cancelled, leaving it an exclusive.

Voice acting

All of the actors in the TV show did voice over for the game, with the exception of Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, although an almost identical match was found.
