Video Game Review - Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Wow what a game!
This game, available for download on xboxlive and psn, follows the story and events of the comics and movie very closely. Scott, joined by 3 others including his 2 bandmates and Ramona herself, has to defeat Ramona's 7 evil ex's to win her completely.
The game is a huge throwback to old school video games and has many many references to specific games littered throughout. From the mario bros 2 character select screen to a few street fighter moments.
The game is a straight beat em up with a boss battle at the end of each stage. You can level up your character as you go and buy items to bring up their stats and trust me, you are going to want to do that. The difficulty really ramps up after the second evil ex.
The music in this game is some of the best 8 bit music i've ever heard and makes me want to go back and replay levels just to hear the music again.
A very good game if you like side scrolling beat em ups like double dragon, battletoads, ninja turtles, etc..
