The game was pretty fun, but I've learned that game novelizations can sometimes be better than the game itself... So far that's not the case here. It's boring to read page after page of action. So far there's not enough fun or character moments.

While I quite enjoyed playing the game of Chaos Bleeds, I found the book to be quite lacking. Obviously books and movies based off of video games are often cheesy, lack true plot development, and have two (if not one) dimensional characters. What bothered me with this book was the fact that the author was working with such a well established set of characters and had the potential to go so much further with it. First off, the beginning dragged. Too much time was set up in Sunnydale, making the "...more

I understand that this book was based on a game, so I want to give it some credit for not being amazingly bad, but it wasn't actually very good. It was tolerable.

The storyline could have been better developed. Again, I understand this was based on a game, but that doesn't mean it has to only go by what happens in the game. The author could have gotten a little more creative with it.

There were points where the story was confusing and complicated in the beginning, but it got too rushed towards the...more

Not a bad book, but suffers from a terrible pacing problem, dealing with Kakistos instead of the actual threat for 200 pages, leaving 100 to condense half of the video game into one chapter, and the final battle into three or four pages. Plus the author has some strange fixation with referring to all of the characters by their full names, which gets a bit grating.

I did enjoy the Willow commentary however, with some very good links to her downward spiral in Season 6, and Spike's inner monologue i...more

This book was actually an aawesome enterpretation of the video game, which is not an easy accomplishment. It was gory, far more so than the game, but it was worth it.
Bringing the Buffy-verse alive in print is not easy, and yet the author did just that!

I have played the video game, which this book is based on, and I love the game. Like Tempted Champions, it has been a while since I'd read this, so I'll have to re-read it.

Made more sense than the game did.
