  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. Scott Pilgrim hardly has an original idea of its own, and that's entirely the point: it's a wonderful homage to its predecessors, while still proving thoroughly enjoyable in its own right.
  3. 83
    Scott Pilgim's real problem: the lack of any online multiplayer.
  4. In the end, though, for the now below-average cost of 800 Microsoft Points there is enough to love about Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to make it a worthy addition to your XBLA collection.
  5. A knowing tribute to the games of yesteryear and a worthy counterpart to both the film and comic. [Issue#101, p.112]
  6. 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.
  7. The insane difficulty feels like a horrible joke. [Issue#63, p.102]

    JUST Classic...any real old school gamer can enjoy this masterpiece. This game is a flashback to the 80's the music, characters, design anyway everything is a time machine to the golden years. For me this game is alot of fun. Collapse

    This game is a homage to River City Ransom, and brings an incredible difficulty to the brawling stages. It will literally pray that the boss is near its death or the enemies have stopped spawning, or you're at the end of the stage. To further frustrate you with the difficulty, each stage is twice as hard as the last, and unless you are able to power-up, not level up cause that does nothing but give you new moves, you won't be able to get past the 3 stage. This whole game demands a god player of maxed out skills or friends, simply put, friends. If you don't have friends who come over and are a only son or daughter, you would have to be a god player of maxed out skills, snuff said. Get loyal friends and buy this game and play it with them.

    Heavily 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. Expand

    When most people think about a "beat 'em up game, from Xbox 360 Live Arcade, allowing 4 players to play coop", they think about Castle Crashers. They should, instead, think Scott Pilgrim. It's better than Castle Crashers in every aspect (except stability - Scott Pilgrim does freeze sometimes - and size - Castle Crashers is bigger). The graphics are old school and true the Scott's comics; the music is also old school, and catchy; the gameplay is old school, but it has level-up-learn-new-moves-get-money-buy-items-buff-stats mechanics; you can grab lot of things from the scenario e use as weapon and the game is pretty challenging... The game has a very strong character and is lots of fun - even more if you go local multiplayer with your friends. Expand

    Beware! This game is EXTREMELY BUGGY! Until Ubisoft releases a patch to counteract its repeated hard freezes, I cannot recommend this game at all. Disappointing and game breaking bugs found within! Expand
