Soon to be released is the Buffy the Vampire Slayer computer game!  The game will be released by Fox Interactive.  The game was ment to be released in November but Fox have made a deal with Microsoft and the release of the game will be held off until after the release of the new Microsoft console the XBox.  In the US the game will be out for Christmas but in Australia we will have to wait until March 2002.

Here are some recently released screen captures from the game.  They may take a while to load because of the size if you choose to view the larger version.  To view the larger version please click the pics below.  The graphics seem really good and Buffy actually looks like Sarah Michelle Geller!

The game will be released on Sega Dreamcast, PlayStation and PC.

UPDATE: It is looking more and more like the game will only be released on the X-Box...

I recently found an extract from the press release:

"Scheduled for a fall 2000 release, Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be a third-person action adventure game where players take on the role of Buffy Summers, a typical high school cheerleader by day and a fierce, but savvy, destroyer of the undead by night.

With the help of her allies and featured characters from the TV series-- Angel, Xander, Cordelia, Willow, Oz and Giles - Buffy must destroy the enemy by using her slaying powers, martial arts, slaying senses and quick healing ability. The game combines action, fighting, drama, humor, exploration and puzzle solving in rich interactive 3-D environments.

Players will have the opportunity to play this game in environments that are familiar to fans of the show such as Sunnydale High School, the cemetery, town square, the shopping mall, The Bronze nightclub and Buffy's home.

To maintain the authentic look and feel from the TV series, the producers and creators of the shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, will play an active role in the development of this title. Developed by The Collective, a Southern California-based game developer, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer design team will create detailed and accurate character and environment depictions from the TV series and apply them to the interactive game."
