    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.

I even postponed my reading of Haruki Murakami's 'Kafka on the Shore' (which is a FANTASTIC book, at least from what I've read so far.) to unlock Negascott and make sure my characters have maxed stats. The game's soundtrack alone, designed by genius chiptune artist Anamanaguchi, is easily worth the ten dollars you pay for this gem of a game. I can see why others may gripe about the lack of online play, but this has not proven to be an issue for me since I have more than enough friends to play with who live nearby. In fact, at least 8 of them have come to play this awesome game with me in the past two days. It really is loads of fun when playing with friends.. if you're looking for some classic brawling fun, be sure to check this one out! Expand

The game starts strong, with 4 playable characters, a fast and fun basic set of combos which grow as you do, and colorful and fitting background to draw from (the game has oodles of throwbacks to all sorts of older Nintendo games alongside the Scott Pilgrim story and characters itself). Combat is fast and fun, at its best when introducing new enemies and goofy one-off parodies (Snowball Fight!). While all the levels look and sound great, the game thins once you hit midgame and need to either buy some beefy stat-increasing items to beat the shorter end levels or grind up your levels (which is how you get the stat-ups anyway). Even grinding isn't so bad, though, as the game's music is both perfect for the game's levels and the retro style. Each character has their own moves and ability to revive teammates, which can allow all sorts of amazing last second saves as well as making the multi-player also complement each players's character choices. All of it is a great package at its price, although a friend or two really lets the game show you its best . Expand

Both in solo and cooperative play. Anamanaguchi's superb music does nothing but accentuate this rarely seen, piquant movie-game. While the lack of online co-op is veritably inexcusable, I found myself an imperceptible incentive to go back to the game after my initial play-through and obtain all of its trophies. Expand

    Clunky boring and overall just a disgrace. Films were ok but this is just a joke
