As much as I love this game, as enthralling as it may be, it’s not going to be for everyone. I understand that – I’m preaching to the converted. And while the old gamers like me and mine will love it, and most of the retro gamers will probably enjoy it, the younger kids will probably find it frustrating and/or boring (younger, of course, being anyone born in 1990 or after – don’t argue with me). It suffers from the same pitfalls that all brawlers, as a rule, do; your thumbs will turn to Jell-O and you’ll piss off your upstairs neighbor with constant laughing/yelling. But, I’m still playing it. I’ve beaten it three times, and it’s a get-together waiting to happen every weekend, and it’s not getting any less distracting as time goes on.

För när fyra spelare röjer upp bland Robertsons sprites till pulserande chiptune-musik existerar inga teoretiska kval om huruvida den här genren stagnerat eller ej. Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game är ett klassiskt beat'em up-nirvana för 2010-talet, och ett bevis så gott som något på att ett såhär perfekt spelkoncept inte behöver något så fjantigt som utveckling.

Of course, most of my complaints can rightly be identified as nitpicks. Certainly, they shouldn't dissuade you from downloading this game if you're excited by the promise of a competent action brawler. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World does nearly everything just the way that it should, provides a bunch of interesting locations, a rocking soundtrack, charming and detailed graphics and enough character customization to keep you busy for hours. It feels extremely dated, but that's intentional and completely okay. After all, there were some things about gaming in the 80s and 90s that totally ruled. Scott Pilgrim is here to remind you what they were. And to get with the girl, admittedly, but I like to think that it's mostly the first thing.

Att göra Scott Pilgrim-spelet till något unikt och retro är förstås helt rätt väg att gå och det var längesedan jag spelade ett så bra spel knutet till en film. Det är inte bara en retrohyllning med fantastisk presentation utan även ett roligt spel i grunden. Och man får battla i Guitar Hero...

You can finish the game in just a few hours, but there is still replay value for people craving more face-punching action. Unlocking the extra characters takes a bit of time and skill. There are also hidden shops, branching paths, and multiple endings, and it's fun to replay levels to find all of their secrets. Despite the healthy replay value, endearing visuals, and classic gameplay, there are some problems in Scott Pilgrim that are difficult to overlook. The lack of online support is not only puzzling in the modern era, but downright annoying if you want to play with long-distance pals, and the fact that you can't even jump into a friend's game midlevel puts up another barrier to entry. Furthermore, things are so cluttered with four players that just staying alive is a trial. These blemishes certainly tarnish the experience, but Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is still a fun brawler at its heart.

Scott Pilgrim contre le Monde n’est pas un mauvais jeu, loin de là. On ne peut que lui proposer un manque d’ambition dans son gameplay et un grand manque d’imagination dans l’enchaînement des ses niveaux. La folie du comics original est là, mais elle est seulement graphique et ne transparaît pas dans le jeu lui même, et c’est grandement préjudiciable au regard du matériau d’origine. Mis à part ce train-train, il demeure un bon beat them all, agréable à jouer, sympathique à 4 en coopératif mais dénué d’une option qui aurait tout changé : le jeu en ligne. C’est peut-être ce qui lui manquera le plus pour convaincre un maximum de joueurs de sauter le pas des 800 Mpts demandés. Dommage.

Scott Pilgrim isn't as fun as it could have been, but at least its heart is in the right place. Fans of the comic can bump up the grade by a letter because of its faithfulness to the source material, which is outstanding.
