Personally, I don't believe in the adage that women need to be better than all the men around them in order to be accepted. By having a few chinks in her armour, Cate remains true to life…maybe even a bonafide Female Role Model.

As a game, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is incredibly faithful to the show it is based on. The sarcastic humor, tone, and atmosphere of the program are all faithfully recreated. The original castwith the exception of Sarah Michelle Gellar (who plays Buffy)has provided their voices for the game, giving the title the feel of the show.
Only in this day and age could a game of such amalgamated ideas like Aliens Versus Predator (AvP) exist. But did the game take its creative direction from the six movies featuring the two sci-fi antagonists, or was it the never-developed screenplay for the vapor film (of the same name) that never materialized? What about the series of Dark Horse comics? Then again, wasn't there already an AvP game for the underachieving Atari Jaguar system?
