  1. 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.
  2. Do yourself a favour (Canadian spelling) and pick up this great XBLA title and do the world a favour by supporting (thereby, showcasing) a truly outstanding Canadian production.

"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 »
