Summary

Back to the original release we all knew that the Scott Pilgrim Vs The World game had something special. It revived a genre and did it with a game based on a successful film which in itself is a huge deal. The game is a homage to beat em ups like Streets of Rage or Final Fight, you go around a screen bearing up dudes and throwing shit at them. It’s all very straightforward but they add in a Catchy soundtrack, smooth animations, and the ability to walk into nearly any shop and buy new stuff! Here we get to do that all over again except now we have all the DLC like new characters and modes which is good but anyone who was a fan would have played them in the last game. Re-releasing the game is great as it does introduce it to a new generation and the game is still a lot of fun to play but it really doesn’t offer anything new to anyone familiar. It does have online co-op and the Co-op does make the game infinitely more fun but once you beat the game once, the desire to replay is small, the game modes are OK but again won’t keep you hooked. Overall I found Scott Pilgrim Vs The World game to be the exact same game that I played all those years ago, it’s a great game but it’s a game that has had no new additions and is o ly for new players or those of us that wanted the nostalgia or just love the film and want to relive it violently at home.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
