    Great movie-tie-in game that has awesome references to both the movie and comic series. Grinding will be required if you don't want to get your butt kicked!

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition is a better release for 2021 than it was ten years ago. The gameplay does not push past the limits of the genre but the presentation, the music, and the setting are good enough that it does not need to. The extra featured content does not justify a new purchase for those who have already gone through the adventures of Scott Pilgrim. But for anyone who knows the comics or the movie and has not played the game the new version is a good way to have hours of fun, preferably with a group of friends in coop mode.

    Despite its long absence, the beat 'em up remains one of the most enjoyable brawlers ever released, thanks to its fast action and gorgeous sprites.

    Like most beat’em’ups, Scott Pilgrim really shines in co-op, so poor netcode really is a disadvantage. On the other hand, the gameplay is good, and chiptune soundtrack is great for fans of this genre. [Issue#252, p.52]

    Today, Scott Pilgrim vs The World feels somewhat let down by its insistence on grinding, even if teamwork lightens the load, and the action is never too deep. Still, just like Scott himself, the game makes up for this with whimsical creativity, offbeat humour, and absurd storytelling.

    Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Game is a decent beat-'em up that fans of the genre should get with their eyes closed, especially when it is the first time it officially appears on PC. As for the rest, the game may offer a few hours of quality fun with friends and that is it.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition is the same game that everybody lamented when it was lost six years ago. The progression-based game flow, the fantastic visuals and soundtrack, and the same problems bar one. While it’s nice to have back what’s become something of a legend in its absence, you know what they say about meeting your heroes.

Specially it deserves praise because it's ubisoft and ubisoft is one of the most underrated video game developers ever. They always make games with extremely beautiful graphics and fun gameplay, but people just whine about stupid things "uh, it's not as fun as i wanted it to be, so it must be 0/10. Expand

But my gosh does Scott Pilgrim top the list in the genre. Great animations, tight controls, killer music and sound! Everything comes together to create one of the best. On top of that, each level brings something new to the table so the game always feels fresh. Such a shame it has taken so long to come to PC, but now that it is here, the hype was warranted. Expand

    Played on the Normal difficulty (Average Joe), reviewed shortly after beating the game once.

    Takes about 4 hours to beat, but there are multiple characters to level if you really enjoy the gameplay. Controls feel sluggish at first which is a real turnoff, but after you improve your stats at shops (leveling up only unlocks new abilities, not stats) it becomes more bearable.

    Shopping is really slow, which is probably a River City Ransom nod, but it's still really slow.

    Joystick is broken in online play, all inputs act as a dash so you can't finetune without the dpad. Sometimes there are lines on the screen from the upscaling tech used here, and sometimes there is lag on screen transitions in onlineplay. We had to restart a level once because of this. Also when client in network play, it doesn't always give you accurate info on the HUD (ie. saying 130HP when you're actually one hit from going down). The extra game modes are not supported in online play. However I never had any input lag in online.

    Overall it's a game with fantastic art and sound, and then mediocore to good gameplay. Fix the online issues and the occasional lines on the screen (not subspace zone glitch lines but glitch lines where they shouldn't be) and this is an 8.

    Quite interesting beat'em up. The game itself is good but not on PC. I thin it is more suite for Nintendo Switch.
    YOU HEAR ME?! BUY THIS GAME

    They put DRM in this? Seriously?

    And this is basically the worst form of DRM imaginable.

    This is why people pirate games.

    I love this game, the gameplay and the music.

    But there is a major problem with this game affecting quite some people where the music is to only 5% of the volume what is should be. This means you either have to crank up your audio to the extreme and with the first notification your audio system will blow up.

    This has been noted and thrown at the Ubisoft devs for half a year to no avail.
    Plus this games requires crappy Ubisoft DRM bloatware.
    I can't recommend you buy this game or support Ubisoft in any way.

    It's not on Steam, so I'm giving 0. I'm not buying it from some trash epic game store.
