9 Brilliant Video Games Based On TV Shows That You Totally Missed

9. Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds

EngineX

Released in 2003 for Xbox, PS2 and GameCube, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds is the fourth title in the Buffy video game series, and the only to be release on multiple platforms.

Chaos Bleeds marked the first time that fans of the series could take control of characters other than the titular Slayer, and also featured a fully developed multiplayer mode, in which players compete in combat, in a game of "Bunny Catcher" (yes, it is exactly as it sounds), or to take control of pentagrams in a game of Domination.

Chaos Bleeds offered a story which takes place at some point during the fifth season of the TV show, although using some alternate reality voodoo, the game resurrects a few of Buffy's long-dead enemies.

Chaos Bleeds was a brilliant adaptation of a brilliant TV show, although despite favourable reviews, faded quite quickly into obscurity.

Fans of the Buffyverse will always remember it fondly, if not for its varied gameplay and well-written story, then simply because it allowed them to take control of all of their favourite characters.
