Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game – Full Edition, Review

0


Bringing back a cult game. After six years missing in action, Scott Pilgrim’s video game is released again. Ramona, it’s coming for you.

We were not talking about Tenet, but about Interstellar. Andrew Garfield was still Spider-Man and Marvel was still with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We didn’t know who Rosalía and C. Tangana were, and it was a few years before we started on the car radio without hearing Des-pa-cito for the fifty-fifth time. Atleti had just won the League (Ole, ole, ole …), Madrid lifted the long-awaited tenth and Germany hid 7-1 against Brazil in Belo Horizonte. In video games, the consoles have suffered from personality disorders. Wii U believed it was a success and Xbox One was considered a TV. Terms like battle royale, crunch and bombing were similar in Chinese to us. We laughed when Bungie said Destiny would last a decade and we looked forward to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt believing that Projekt ‘s CD would one day be a Rockstar Games. It was a period of acquisitions. Amazon bought Twitch, Facebook bought Oculus and Microsoft bet everything on Minecraft. Kojima was still owned by Konami, Sony still known as PlayStation VR Project Morpheus, and Dragon Age: Inquisition was named Game of the Year at The Game Awards. This is how things were in 2014, also known as the year in which Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game has gone from the face of the earth. Well, maybe the latter is a bit dramatic, but the game it fluctuated from the major digital platforms and was no longer available for purchase. There was no way to get a copy. The last pressure he needed to consecrate himself as cult game. Since then, fans have spent six long years teasing him off Ubisoft and Bryan Lee O’Malley to bring it back. Six years in which the world has changed dramatically, as we have seen. But, now that it’s back in the end and we’ve got it on our hands, it’s clear to us that there are two things that haven’t changed, or won’t change. The first is our motivation for everything related to it Scott pilgrim, Ramona flowers Y. The Bob-Omb Sex. Second, that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is still there a little gem of blow ’em up.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Full Edition is straightforward the same game we enjoyed in 2010, when it was launched taking advantage of the great draw (we repeat, great) Edgar Wright film. The only difference is that now there are two DLC packs as standard the original was released between 2010 and 2013. The first was released to coincide with the release of the film in DVD and Blu-Ray format. Built with new playable character (Chau Knives) and two new game modes (Dodgeball and Total Battle). For him, the second package was begged for more than three years, but at least he was right the big problem with the title: the lack of online. That second DLC matched and allowed us to handle Scott Wells, Scott’s roommate. Now those online characters, modes and multiplayer are available from the start, and are being added material graphic improvements in terms of resolution, framing and load.

What is the new old man?

The most important addition is the online mode, as Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game – Full Edition not yet fully recommended for single player. It is no longer just that the extra modes lose all grace alone (The Total Battle, for example PvP mode consisting of facing the four players against each other in a WWE ring type, so without two the game does not start). Let’s just say it because of those traits that disappear if we wage war on our own, such as the choice to resurrect our allies, steal lives or make special movements as a team. Exactly that Scott Pilgrim is a “broken” solo game that most of them will hardly be able to overcome the easiest difficulty they have and that is based on farming and farming. It’s frustrating as sometimes it seems It doesn’t depend on our ability at the controls, but on the improvements we’re buying from Scott. Without the help of others we spend many hours repeating levels, dying and collecting coins. And then it’s best to have a guide that tells us what we really want to buy (a guide like this, you’re welcome). More than a single wolf will withstand the number of enemies, the length of the stages and the level of strength and health of their ultimate bosses. It happened in the original and it happens in this one. Once we assimilate it, let’s save a lot and improve our character, turn the tables and eventually we’ll be the ones that seem authentic vegan gods. It could be better balanced. However, the persistence of problems for player content is minimized by the affinity, thanks to us who will be with us whenever we want.

Other than that, the game is still a delicious button masher, beat ’em up of vintage flavor which reminds us of those wonderful evenings of our youth in which we discovered Double Dragon and Final Fight, or in which we traveled back in time and took bullets hand in hand with the Ninja Turtles. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Full Edition “Me against the neighborhood”Manual, allowing us to distribute towels to Canadian neighbors seven different levels, which also has space for mini-games to avoid or break things and to throw some other raceMore closely memorable elements like Castle Crashers. A button for punching (light attack), another for kicks (heavy), a third for blocking and a fourth that allows jumping, plus two stimuli that invoke a supporting character or launch our special movement. As you can see, the base is always the same, as are the rest of the ingredients of its formula: holes through which we fall from the stage, invisible walls that allow us to pass only after clearing the area, a final palm for each level, weapons like bottles and bats. In short, a light and friendly brawler that acts as a tribute to arcades and arcades that was the adolescence of Bryan Lee O’Malley. The spirit of the original work also reflects little adaptation in their proposal.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game: Full Edition

Perhaps the greatest novel of the title lives in “the RPG touch”. Our character gains experience, levels up as we fight and thus unlocks new movements. In addition, we will find some shops in the missions where you can buy things that enhance their characteristics, see those with strength, speed and life. Both ideas are interesting, but they end up being a story. From the list of 16 movements we always call the same three or four spam, and as for the things, there is not even a menu where we can see what we are carrying and what stats we have. Not to mention, as we have already said, the latter has a negative impact on the balance of the single-player mode. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game doesn’t complicate life, but the truth is that it doesn’t have to be fun and entertaining either. In company, about four hours survives the adventure they sigh and guarantees as much laughter and good challenge. It is not an excessive era, but it is price more than according to and then then we can dedicate ourselves to the luck of other difficulties, try to unlock Nega Scott, discover the various terminals and raise all the characters to level 16. Not to mention the additional methods, for example Boss plane (Lifetime Boss) and Horror of Survival (where to survive on hordes of zombies). You can easily double that number, but even if you didn’t, we love a short, straightforward and inexperienced game. Offers relief from current trends. The eye drops in a time full of 50-hour sandboxes to allow them to go overboard and the need to play all possible genres.

As for its graphic and audio division, what we will tell you is that the original version has not been clarified, or does not show images and trailers of the game. This is their strong point and they make the title Scott Pilgrim fans need to stop (come from film or graphic novels). An honorable quote from the Anamanaguchi soundtrack, composed for the occasion and simply memorable. 24 memorable themes the best midi music of the eighties. Unsurprisingly, they had such a good run on Amazon, iTunes and company, that they sat in the top 2010 listings of the very Billboard magazine and the group finished a special edition on vinyl back in 2014. As for graphics, clear indication of love for 8 bits, the pixel and the sprite, for NES and Legend of Zelda, the saga that has always been a backdrop in Scott ‘s life. A visual explosion of effects, colors and characters, with a good number of them on screen and better finish and solution than ever before. We didn’t come across some of the original’s bugs, so nothing prevented us from enjoying its stunning aesthetics and designs. Speaking of which, Scott Pilgrim Vs. In the World: In the Game the original designs of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s work are hidden hundreds of references and winks. In fact, you have to notify sailors. The game makes no effort at the level of the magazine and assume you know the story. Yes, okay, it tells you that Scott loves Ramona and that you have to chase the League of Ex-Bad Boys, but for now. It has no dialogue, does not interfere with explaining who it is, and does not offer any kind of background or details. It only shows the different personalities of its main characters, nor does it succumb to the same old story. It is not a failure, it is done on purpose. On the one hand, because of the blow up that history imitates, it has always been a secondary thing. And on the other hand, because you don’t have to have fun. Leave everything narrative in the hands of a few cinemas and the dozens of secrets and references for their arrangements (where we come across things that came out in the comics and not in the movie). It is friendly and can be enjoyed without knowing Scott Pilgrim, but rIt is highly recommended to know about his romantic adventures in Toronto if we want to enjoy and make the most of it.

Multiplayer to save single player mode

A priori, everything in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game – Full Edition seems to be in order – the price has been kept (valuable) of the original plus the DLC, a online method included as standard, the small bugs and difficulties seem to have disappeared at first … and so on. However, we must admit that we were also left with that feeling this return may be accompanied by more news. After all, it’s been six years since it went out of business and ten years since it was launched. The Toronto world map that we move through, for example, has always hindered areas where there was a rumor that a future DLC could be set that never came to an end. The game it was borrowed to an extra level, more playable character, new minigames or, in short, details that would make this “Full Edition” a “Enhanced Edition”. And if not, at least minor tweaks could be introduced by balancing the game, setting that difficulty curve ranging from 100 to 0, or increasing the variety of enemy types and weapons. Maybe new tricks. Yes, okay, we’re always wondering and never settling for anything, but we love Ramona Flowers and Scott Pilgrim’s Universe too much. I would not be thankful for these six years of waiting.

The game assumes you know the story of 7 evil ex-boyfriend Scott and Ramona (sorry, plain ex). It makes no narrative effort and it is essential that you have gone through the previous comics, or at least in the movie.

We have additional modes such as Boss Rush (Boss Rush for Life), Survival Horror (where you can find sets of zombies), Total Battle (HP) and Dodgeball. In coop 4 they are hilarious.

For fans of the original work, the game is a museum of references and winks, an 8 – bit surprise that also includes an OST composed by Anamanaguchi for the occasion.
