    While in no way essential, there's worse you could do with your money... [Issue#65, p.104]
  2. I'm thankful to this game, because it intrigued me enough to check out the excellent movie and the even more excellent graphic novels. It opened my eyes to the works of artist Paul Robertson and the band Anamanaguchi. It's just a damn shame that the game is nothing special.
  3. A knowing tribute to the games of yesteryear and a worthy counterpart to both the film and comic. [Issue#101, p.112]
  4. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game makes for one of the better movie-based games out there. It carries its homage to old beat 'em up games a little too far, forgoing online play and a consistent checkpoint system, especially for a game that's not meant to be played by yourself.
  5. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a fun throwback to a simpler era, but visibility issues and a lack of online co-op get in the way of your enjoyment.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is fun to play but only for a little while. The monotonous gameplay, simple graphics and bad music will make sure that you get bored very fast.
  7. This game could have been a lot more fun if a couple of tweaks were made in certain key areas.
  8. It's honest fun for a while. [Nov 2010, p.121]
  9. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is a great homage to beat-em-ups of old that plays well, but is hurt by a few technical issues and gameplay missteps. No online co-op can also sour the experience.
  10. There's a fairly good game here that's just marred by a terrible co-op system.
  11. The insane difficulty feels like a horrible joke. [Issue#63, p.102]

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" wasMy friend was literally addicted to this game, so we played co-op...but I didn't get the hype for this game. "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" was a good movie, but the game, following with **** graphics and LINEAR hack-and-slash gameplay, was a meh. Only those who are obssessed with SP might like this game; if not, go back to COD. Full Review »

    Heavily influenced by brawlers like Streets Of Rage and Battletoads, this is a side-scrolling beat 'em up with a 16-bit aesthetic. TheHeavily influenced by brawlers like Streets Of Rage and Battletoads, this is a side-scrolling beat 'em up with a 16-bit aesthetic. The character progression is satisfying, you're rewarded for replaying levels and collecting items by constantly developing new moves to use against enemies which get progressively more difficult to handle. For anyone who has read the books or seen the film there's great fun to be had interacting with some of the characters you know and love, in settings you're familiar with. Co-op is good fun if you can hook up with (up to 3) like-minded button mashers, and personally it made for good use of the arcade stick I'd had in a cupboard since Street Fighter IV. Full Review »
