    This is awesome stuff. I couldn't recommend it more highly, especially at 10 bucks, and I'm sure you'll be telling everyone you know the same after you clear the first stage (if not sooner).
  2. As a downloadable title Scott Pilgrim is almost what everyone could want. It does nothing but pay homage to the ghosts of gaming past while it improves a long forgotten genre of gaming.

    Great retro scrapper. Superb in co-op but can drag when playing solo. [Oct 2010, p.84]
  4. If you don't like classic beat 'em ups, I tentatively recommend this game with the qualifier that you need a few friends to play with. If you do enjoy classic beat 'em ups -- then why are you still sitting here reading this?
  5. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a great beat'em up for keep players engaged, nostalgic, and smiling.
  6. Just like Streets of Rage or Mutation Nation, this game is a simple and primitive 2D beat 'em all that manages to speak to nostalgic gamers with its pixilated graphics and great MIDI soundtrack... A very good recipe.
  7. This game is tough. Maybe I just suck at it but it seems unreasonably hard for what I expected to be a fun brawler. Then again, at least it didn't turn into licensed shovelware.

While the game is not without fault and a lot could be fixed, this does not change the fact that this is the most fun I've had with a game in YEARS. I've loved playing many games, but I haven't been this in love with a game, it's characters and it's universe since perhaps Psychonauts. This game is proof that gaming isn't all about tech-specs, graphical horsepower or even just gameplay - it's about having a soul to give it life. Unless you flat-out despise pixel-graphics, beat 'em ups or Scott Pilgrim, you owe it to yourself to spend $10 on something that should have been a full priced retail game.

I love the 8bit style and the music is totally awesome. There are only a few things i do not like: 1. Playing it 1-player is nearly impossible, because of the amount of enemies and how much damage they do, while playing it with friends is an awesome and fun experience. which leads me to what i don't like point 2. there is no online co-op. I don't hate this game because of the lack of online, but as a game that is the most fun played with friends, i would love to see co-op. Expand
