I just wanted to take a minute to shower Scott Pilgrim: The Game with a little praise. I purchased this wonderful ROCK-N-ROLL ACTION LOVE-STORY for the 8-BIT GENERATION just two days ago and have already logged maybe twelve hours of play (a lot for me).
I had heard the gameplay was very similar to the NES classic River City Ransom. Collecting change from defeated enemies to purchase food, beverage, and special items is a blast and grants stat boosts and special abilities. While Scott and his crew punch and kick assorted baddies while double-tapping to run just as in RCR, the advanced moves and extreme boss battles bring gameplay to new levels of AWESOME. The multiplayer experience is reminiscent of the best parts of the Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games, which a healthy dose of Double Dragon and Streets of Rage thrown in the mix.
The soundtrack is done entirely by chiptune group Anamanaguchi. Individual level and boss tracks are nicely tailored to the environments and pelt you with wave upon wave of nostalgia. These songs will pump you up and lodge themselves firmly in the recesses of your brain.
I would take me a long time to list all the things I love about this game so I will just say if you have any interest in the Scott Pilgrim Universe (whether through the graphic novels or movie) you should not hesitate to pick up and enjoy this little gem if you haven't already. Same applies to any fans of 8 and 16-bit scrolling fighters.
