    Buffy is great in every way that DTR is not...

    Avoid DTR and get Buffy.

    I hear Buffy is a WHOLE lot better. That's only from reviews as I have not played either...

    I don't know about DTR, but I think Buffy is a rental. It's a good game, but I can see it having very little in the way of replay value.

    I picked up Buffy yesterday and watched my wife play it for an hour and a half, The game looked awesome, I picked it up for a moment and played it and I found the controls to be very comfortable to use. I'll play it some more tonight. I think replay value will come from the farely deep combat system. Time will tell.

    I love it so far. I actually have two games in progress. I'm nearing the end at normal difficulty, and I've started a second game at hard difficulty. It's been a long time since I've played a game through twice.

    According to Extended Play, Buffy gets in the "higher difficulty" levels when you progress. Also, due to the sometimes bad camera manuevering, you get blind sighted fairly alot. But I wouldn't mind playing it. Looks really good, and character modeling are almost perfect.

    Extended Play was being a little silly about the camera angles, IMO. The game does get harder as it goes along, but I haven't had trouble because of being blindsided or camera issues; it just seems like the AI opponents get better at blocking your attacks, so you need to get better at your blocks and combos, and the fights get more intense. It can get a little frustrating but I think the difficulty curve is fairly solid, overall.
