    DO NOT TRY THIS GAME BY YOURSELF. If you are like me, and you enjoy single player games, then you will find this game insanely, utterly infuriating. Perhaps I just never got used to the game difficulty, or I just simply don't care for this style of game anymore (I loved Streets of Rage and the Double Dragon games as a kid). Either way, this game annoyed the ever-loving piss out of me.DO NOT TRY THIS GAME BY YOURSELF.

Perhaps I just never got used to the game difficulty, or I just simply don't care for this style of game anymore (I loved Streets of Rage and the Double Dragon games as a kid). Either way, this game annoyed the ever-loving piss out of me. Scott can run side-to-side, but his vertical movement is REDONKULOUSLY slow (the jump thing is hard to control), and the game likes spawning multiple enemies at once who stun you for 3 seconds at a time. Let's not forget the random scripted moments (such as a bus passing through the screen) that are nearly impossible to dodge unless you already know where they are (ie your first play through, you're boned). Everything added up to a game with great music and cool moves (and based off an awesome series) that pissed me off so bad I couldn't play it for more than 15 minutes at a time. After roughly the 10th attempt, I finally gave up for good. None of my friends are even remotely interested in playing this game, so single player is the only way I can ever play. Since single player absolutely blows, this game is worthless to me. I completely 110% regret this purchase, and wouldn't have paid $0.99 for it, had I known what it was. I vehemently suggest you try the demo first!! Expand

    Basically made to cater for fans who speach is like "OMG THIS GEAMS IS SOOOO COOOL LULLLLZZZ"

    It's a very bad attempt to cash in on the whole Geek Chic Thing going around. Any fan of this should be shot, also if you wear a nintendo belt buckle you should die too. It's a side scrolling beat em up that lacks either depth or originallity.

    This game is a very repetitive brawler and an campaign for the failed movie. Watching children beat each other up was unsatisfying. Enemies include dogs which I find immoral. Go play Streets of Rage instead.

    This game is completely unplayable: corrupt savegames, lost progress, not knowing when the game saves, technical flaws all around. Do not buy this game, you'll regret it.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World lends itself to different interpretations: if you're a novice gamer, forget this title since it's way too hard and frustrating for actual standards; but if you're thirty years old or more, you'll enjoy Scott's battle though its failures (the lack of an online multiplayer mode) and weaknesses.

    If you don't enjoy old-school looks, repetitive gaming and blips for music, then you obviously aren't the one this game is aimed at. However, if those things give you goose bumps and memories of beating up the same enemy over and over then Scott Pilgrim is your game.
  3. Winners Don´t Eat Meat - and they don´t pass a chance to waste some hours with retro loving friends on this charming pixel brawler. This is a trip down memory lane, with lots of great references to the games of the past. If you are looking for a new Castle Crashers then this might be it.
