Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game – Complete Edition Review

Review
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game – Complete Edition revels in its difficulty, as well as the graphic novel it borrows from. For just $15, what you get is a delight of a beat ‘em up to play online with friends, and an uphill struggle to take on yourself if you’re into that sort of thing. Wrapping it up in gorgeous visuals and an astounding soundtrack, it’s hard to go wrong here. If you didn’t pick this up in its original run, absolutely give it a go now. Easy to fall in love with, and satisfying as hell to beat, it’s well worth the price of admission and the trip down memory lane.
