Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition: A Reminder Of A Beat'em Up Classic

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition: A Reminder Of A Beat'em Up Classic

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game
celebrated its 10th anniversary in the summer of 2020. And what better way to blow out your candles than to return to the ring in a “Complete Edition” intended for recent machines? This Beat'em Up published by Ubisoft and Universal Games was originally an adaptation of the Canadian comic book "Scott Pilgrim" by Bryan Lee O'Malley, a comic book also adapted into a film the same year and directed by Edgar Wright. But back to the main subject, has this classic 2D fight, which the shops have given up in 2014 for reasons that remain unclear, has it retained all its splendor? Note: The review of the "Complete Edition" of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game focuses on the technique, the content as well as the additions specific to this 2021 version.

THE FIGHT COMES FOR US

No need to go into detail on the qualities and the few flaws of the original game. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was a generous 2D Beat'em Up in content, visually and technically mastered. Its pixel art graphics, 8-bit animations, and deep respect for the original comic book greatly contributed to the title's good reputation in 2010. The gameplay was not to be outdone by skillfully mixing a powerful combat system with difficulty. raised and RPG mechanics ... essential to accentuate this feeling of progress as well as the rise of the different characters.

Initially, the title roster of Ubisoft and Universal Games had only 4 heroes in its ranks (Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Stephen Still, and Kim Pine) before being joined later by Knives Chau (ex of Scott) and Wallace Wells (Scott's roommate) via additional content. The Complete Edition, for its part, includes as soon as it comes out the 6 fighters mentioned above and fortunately retains all the ancillary content including the bonus game modes (Boss Extermination, Survival Horror, Battle Royale, and Prisoner Bullet) which in their time animated the evenings of lovers of fighting.

Better yet, this Beat'em Up, which was originally limited to only local multiplayer before correcting the situation in March 2013 via an update, is finally taking the lead. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition is playable from 1 to 4 players locally and online "Day One". This 2021 reissue also takes advantage of the current surplus of power to offer itself the best possible display as well as the best framerate. On the most powerful machines, 4K at 60 frames/second highlights the meticulous work of the artists as well as the many clashes that punctuate Scott's quest. As for the Nintendo Switch, it does not have to be ashamed of its performance. The opposite would have been surprising.

Last but not least, the soundtrack composed and performed by indie New York rock band “Anamanaguchi” is making a comeback. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game would undoubtedly lose its aura without its soundtrack, rightly considered by music lovers to be one of the most significant of the seventh generation of consoles (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360). It should be noted that this Complete Edition does not offer any strictly "new" content. But were such additions really necessary?

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition, the conclusion

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was a Beat'em Up classic in 2010, and the Beat'em Up hasn't aged a bit over the past decade. The Complete Edition is generous in content, inspires fans of the genre to outdo themselves in a full-bodied experience, and remains punchy with its extremely well-thought-out combat system. Even artistically, Scott and his little comrades keep their heads held high in all circumstances. Its Pixel Art as well as its soundtrack make it quite simply a timeless little “arty” jewel. Finally, the game from Ubisoft and Universal Games take advantage of modern technological advances to discover (depending on the machine) the joys of high resolutions up to 4K, and the comfort of a fluid experience up to 60 frames/second.

Retrogaming Forever - Liero One Of The Best Game I Ever Played

As many of you probably know by now, I am a fan of retrogaming. I remember since the 80's I where my dad bought me an Atari 2600 VCS I felt in love with the world of computing. Since back then I became interested in programming as well. After playing games for many years on both my Commodore 64 and TRS-80 Color Computer, I slowly get involved in PC gaming. As you may know PCs at that time were not the ideal machine for games, but the '90s became the years of changes and one of the games that brought my attention was Liero. Conceived and created in 1998 Liero became a popular duel game in classrooms and homes alike. Between 1999 and 2005 the thriving Liero community created astounding maps, mods, and editors to enhance the experience of this amazing game. This is the final version of the original generation of Liero released in early 2000. Even after the last two decades, Liero maintains its popularity. If you are still an old fan of Liero, you will be more than happy to lear

Watch Dogs Legion Review: a neat and promising cyberpunk atmosphere

The verdict is getting closer for Watch Dogs Legion , now closer than ever to its official release. A few weeks before the launch, we were once again able to take charge of the Ubisoft Toronto team's title and this time focus on its atmosphere and its history, after having discussed its new features and gameplay a few months ago. Here we were able to play Watch Dogs Legion for more than 4h30. Unlike the one in July which made us discover the first hours of the game, this demo was slightly more advanced in the game: two districts of London were already released and we had access to new scripted missions. Finally, from a technical point of view, note that this session took place remotely on a version of Watch Dogs Legion playable thanks to the Parsec streaming solution. Watch Dogs first of the name took us to a modern Chicago with a rather serious and down-to-earth tone. Watch Dogs 2 fully embraced its Californian vibe, juggling themes related to the joys and sorrows of Silicon Val

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin Review - Good Concept Does Not Make Good Recipe

While, like every year, 2020 promises to end on a high note with a bunch of big video game releases, some less publicized titles still risk trying their luck in this congested niche. This is the case with Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin , a somewhat peculiar Japanese title since it offers a rather unusual mix of genres. Although the niche is rather poorly chosen, stuck between blockbusters like Watch Dogs Legion and probably eclipsed by the release of the new generation of consoles, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin does not dismantle and wants to be generous. After giving you my first impressions in a preview, let's now see what the finished product is worth it. I played for about 20 hours on a classic PlayStation 4. During our review, I did not encounter any major bugs or concerns. I already told you about it in my preview, the first impressions on the title of Edelweiss are quite mixed, although I came out with a certain enthusiasm. First of all because the graphics processing is quite disapp
