Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game Review
25 August 2010
Excerpt: If you grew up playing games in the late 80s and early 90s, you probably indulged in a little RPG-style beat-em-up called River City Ransom . The game had you beat up Japanese banchos as you traveled the city looking for your girlfriend, a common NES plot device.
Summary: Nostalgia is a difficult thing to manufacture. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World tries to home in on long-lost memories of gaming's past, but the results are often as aggravating as they are endearing.
Pros: Lots of hidden secrets give the game replay value, Charming, old-school aesthetics, Good progression system
Cons: No online cooperative mode, Playing with three friends is too chaotic, Some visibility issues
Excerpt: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is a downloadable title that has little to do with the movie starring Michael Cera. Instead, it's a homage to '90s side-scrolling beat 'em ups and the graphic novels of Bryan Lee O'Malley.
Pros: Cutesy, retro fun that fits its source material, heavy nostalgia for 90s console gamers
Cons: Some grinding required before you can inflict serious damage, you can’t play as Knives Chau
