Mini Review: Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game Complete Edition – An Inconsistent But Entertaining Beat-‘Em-Up

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has finally returned after years of retirement from digital tablets. The 2D beat-’em-up captures the story of the graphic novels and film well, with each stage ending with a boss fight against one of Ramona’s evil exes. It is a very entertaining title, but without a real change in this new version, some old problems arise.

The problem is that you start to feel malnourished. Even on the simplest difficulty, you will probably be trampled by basic enemies, as you have the most rudimentary moves. As you gain experience, you’ll level up and unlock additional abilities that fill your move group, but for the first few hours we really felt under-equipped. This means that there is a tough battle at first, but if you persevere, the combat becomes broader and the difficulty becomes more manageable.

As with any beat-’em-up, it is best played cooperatively. Local play is the way to go if you can, but the online co-op is pretty usable. While we did have quite a significant input lag when reading online, it seems to work for the most part. Playing with others increases the fun factor, even more Scott Pilgrim has some fantastic supporting characters. The full edition means that you have access to Wallace Wells and Knives Chau, so there are a good number of fighters to choose from.

It is really a simple little game, but it is a game full of personality. Not only does it have all the major story beats you’d expect, but there are plenty of little references to other games to be found in Scott’s rugged, pixelated hometown. Music adds a lot to the effect; Anamanaguchi’s chiptune soundtrack is delightful. If you like a simple beat-’em-up, it’s definitely worth checking out, even if you’re not a fan of the original material, although it really helps.
