Review: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game: The Review
The movie was great. Is the game worth your 10 bucks?
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game attempts to be a nostalgic throw back to the final fight/river city ransom days of side scrolling beat-em-ups. Truth is, I'm not that nostalgic for those days. True, the graphics and sound effects are a neat touch, but the game play is just not that much fun. You can level up to get new moves and what not, but it's just not that engaging. I didn't get the same sense of humor that I got from the movie. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that a movie tie in game is bad, but I thought this would be different given the movie we're talking about has so many classic video game references in it. I'm glad this game was only 10 bucks, but I'd be even happier if I'd just downloaded the demo.
Verdict: Rent It. (in this case, download the demo)
