Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The Complete Edition is a 2D beat-em-up based on the graphic novels and live-action film by Scott Pilgrim, developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu with remastering.
The series of graphic novels, films and games follows the adventures of Scott Pilgrim, a 23-year-old slacker who sets out to win the love of Ramona Flowers, an Amazonian rollerblader. But to do that, he’ll have to fight his seven bad exes!
Ramona’s Seven Evil Ex’s
The game was originally released in August 2010 on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in digital edition along with a theatrical release, which received positive reviews and several awards. However, in 2014, the game was removed from the digital storefronts due to licensing issues, making word of mouth impossible for those interested in the game.
But now the game has made a miraculous comeback on the Switch (and a few other systems), including the entire DLC, thanks to the efforts of game creator Brian Lee O’Malley and Ubisoft. Is this game worth an encore? Let’s find out!
Charming visual style and great appearance!
They are fighting at various locations in Toronto, Canada.
The game has a very charming visual style based on graphic novels with really well done 2D sprites that have a lot of charm for the various playable characters. The game works very well, even at 60 FPS. This game also has some great video game references, the world map is a tribute to Super Mario World 3 and some other retro games as examples.
The world map is a tribute.
I also really enjoyed the various music tracks in the game, provided by a chiptune punk band called Anamanaguchi. In my opinion, the OST fits the retro modernized style of the game very well, and I would also say that the OST alone is worth listening to.
Ramona defends against her opponents with a hammer.
Scott Pilgrim VS The World: The gameplay of the full edition of the game is inspired by games like River City Ransom. It’s essentially a fighting game where you fight waves of enemies as you progress through different levels. You have light and heavy attacks, you can take weapons to use against enemies or throw them, and you can evolve the various characters in the game to learn new techniques. You can also spend money on various items that can heal your character and increase his stats. There is a bit of a squeak, as the game can be difficult in many ways, just like a classic retro game.
Get coins in the blocks of the subspace highway!
In some levels, you’ll also come across gates that lead you to the Subspace Highway, which acts as a shortcut through various levels where you can chop up flying enemies and hit certain blocks to get more money to increase your character’s stats.
Third Evil Ancient Ramon, Todd Ingram launches one of his special attacks.
At the end of the level you have to deal with a boss who is one of Ramona Flowers’ seven exes, with one exception. They are challenging and have mastered their own moves and tricks.
There is also a storyline where you can play with seven different characters, one of which must be unlocked. There are also additional game modes, such as. B. Boss Rush mode, where you have to face bosses and minivans in the game. A Terror Survival mode where you enjoy yourself against zombies and other modes like Battle Royale and Dodgeball. You can also enjoy all of these modes with a friend on the couch, and as a new feature there is also a network mode that allows you to play with friends and randomly selected people online.
The gameplay is simple but very entertaining, and for those who like to replay their games, there is a good dose of replay value!
Scott and Ramona.
In the words of Wallace Wells: It’s time for the L word.
I really like this game, especially as a fan of the basic material from which the film and graphic novels take their time in the sun when it comes to references. I had a really good time with the game.
It’s a game I highly recommend to Scott Pilgrim fans and even those who love beat-em-up and retro action games.
It also warms my heart to see that this gem will also be released physically via Limited Run Games, so I hope Scott Pilgrim VS The World : The full edition of the game will be more accessible to people interested in the game.
Scott Pilgrim VS The World: Game Complete Edition has been a lost secret for six or seven years!
Final placement : Two thumbs up!
