    This game will punch the highlights out of your hair. It’s a hard and fast retro throwback that was revived for a very good reason. [Issue #3, p.64]

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition remains an excellent game. With the whole game and DLC bundled together, this is the definitive package for fans of the franchise and of beat 'em ups in general. There’s a lot to be in lesbians with here, from the stellar soundtrack to excellent moment to moment gameplay. It’s clearly an utterly unique labour of love from a talented group of people (who happen to work at Ubisoft).

    Still an incredibly polished and fun beat ‘em up that has truly stood the test of time. While it’s slightly annoying that playing with the other characters requires you to replay entire levels and that the online features and a full playable fighter are currently locked behind Ubisoft’s ridiculous server sign-in, in the end this is still a great title deserving of its re-release. The combat is quick and fluid, the soundtrack is truly incredible and the multiplayer mode with friends makes the game even more fun.

    Those of you looking for the next Castle Crashers or Streets of Rage need look no further, as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition is a great beat ‘em up for your Switch. Bombastic presentation and crunchy combat gameplay make this one enjoyable from start to finish. Though it can feel like it runs a bit short and the difficulty spikes can be rather intense, we’d give this one a strong recommendation to anybody looking for a fun, short game to play in co-op. Let's just hope it sticks around for longer than four years this time.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was a Beat'em Up classic in 2010, and the Beat'em Up hasn't aged a bit over the past decade. The Complete Edition is generous in content, inspires fans of the genre to outdo themselves in a full-bodied experience, and remains punchy with its extremely well-thought-out combat system.
  6. Don't miss out! Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game is a great beat 'em up game, although some of the mechanics are a bit old fashioned.

    Scott Pilgrim doesn’t have the same attention-grabbing appeal to the modern blockbusters and with many people still fresh to the winter’s big titles thanks to getting them as Christmas pressies I worry that the early January release may fall flat. However for those looking to revisit this game, people with fond memories of a cult classic, they’ll find it a joy still to play and well worth a look. It plays brilliantly, has a really tough challenge to the gameplay and still inhabits all that charm and uniqueness you remember.

I especially appreciate that along with the base game, they brought Knives and Wallace with it since you originally had to pay extra for it. The combat is fun, the controls are fair and understandable, and the bosses are well handled. I always wished I could play the original game, so I was so excited when they announced the rerelease of it, and I am not disappointed. Definitely play this if you loved the original game, the graphic novels, or just are a fan of beat-em up games. Expand

    Style over substance, but still an enjoyable game. Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game - Complete Edition is riddled with bugs, absurdStyle over substance, but still an enjoyable game. Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game - Complete Edition is riddled with bugs, absurd difficulty curves, and random graphical issues, but maintains a visually pleasing adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's original comics as well as fantastic music throughout. While the game lacks in depth combat, and bosses after the first one lack phases whatsoever, Scott Pilgrim is still a pretty alright brawler. The RPG-like levelling system allows the difficulty curve to be overpowered with patience and grinding, but levelling up too far makes the game a lot less enjoyable. The fact cutscenes are unskippable and sometimes in multiplayer the screen will cease to scroll is also criminal. Ubisoft had an opportunity to make a definitive version of this game in its re-release, but it really just feels like a straight port and nothing more.

    I think you should play this game if you're a Scott Pilgrim fan, but *only* if you're a Scott Pilgrim fan. This game provides little to nothing for fans of mechanically deep brawlers and beat em ups, but I still can't help but love it. There's charm and care oozing out of everything but the actual programming

It is usually fun, but there's a general lack of polish, perhaps most notably in the difficulty curve, which fluctuates on a near constant basis. While the video game adaptation of Scott Pilgrim is a bit disappointing and certainly doesn't live up to it's full potential, it is still a solid multiplayer beat 'em up title that many are sure to enjoy.

Items and pick-up objects make the game very frustrating in some cases, but can be bypassed if you pay attention. The sound and the graphics harmonize wonderfully and together create a very unique style, which one looks for in vain these days. Local multiplayer is almost a must for games of this kind and is happy to provide one or the other fun evening with the buddies. Only Ubisoft is holding back this game. The forced registration of a Ubisoft account as well as the holding back of the DLC and the online mode is really disgusting. And after all that, the online mode doesn't even work properly. We can really only hope for a patch that will be released this time. Expand

Great game, I was waiting for the pre-launch of the game and for good reason.
