Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game made good on the promise that movie tie-in games usually failed to keep, and the Complete Edition proves that virtually the entire package is just as enjoyable over a decade later.

I am glad that I missed out on Scott Pilgrim the first time around because I don’t know if I would have appreciated it as much then, as I do now. Beat ’em up’s are generally not the type of games I enjoy, however Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game has probably changed my mind. I am motivated to play more games in this genre.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is the game to play if you love old-school 2D beat-em-ups. However, you really need to love the genre to love this game. If you thought that Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy was old-school to a fault, I’d be cautious about picking up this game. Also, the online is just as antiquated as the game genre.

Despite having a few specific problems, new and old, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition arrives with the same quality and fun as the original version from over a decade ago.

But Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game is still fun to play and if, in the last ten years, found a love for the comic book that inspired it or the film that became a cultural icon, then this game is a really superb way to help celebrate that fandom. As a fighting game, this complete edition is absolutely worth to be in your collection but as a trip down memory lane, the asking price is worth battling an Evil Ex or two to have!

Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game is beat’em up bliss and ideal if you’re looking for a palette cleanser between Triple-A titles.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition oozes charisma and entertains with its humorous beat'em up mechanics. Simple concepts make the experience very accessible without neglecting some depth aspects. This is another one of those perfect games to enjoy with friends in multiplayer: it is a delight to coordinate attacks to finish off enemies or take advantage of extra modes. However, the title has some dubious design choices, such as the poorly implemented RPG aspects and unbalanced difficulty, which can keep the most demanding players away. In the end, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is an uncomplicated option to enjoy with friends.

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game - Complete Edition is most definitely recommended for multiplayer, so if you do indeed have some folks to play it through with, don’t miss the chance to play one of the best looking retro-inspired games around. But if you’re in it only for the single player, you might be left disappointed by how unbalanced it can be.

The music is fun, the story and animation are quirky, and there’s plenty to reminisce with friends over while you’re playing couch co-op. But its nostalgia has tainted our recollection of what Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game was and it’s not what we need anymore. If I’ve learned anything from this experience it’s that hipsters, nostalgia, and emo kids are the real villains.

It has some rough difficulty jumps, but Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game – Complete Edition is a masterstroke of a beat-em-up.
