An Epic Pilgrim's Journey
Welp. All I can say is that this game is pretty much epic multiplied by awesome squared. Then add ten… thousand. Does anyone remember the Turtles in Time (Ninja Turtles) for SNES? This is exactly that – But more.
Scott Pilgrim is an ode to old school 8-bit games. Everything is true to the era – the music is EXCELLENT, the graphics quality, while 8-bit looking, runs really smooth, and the game play is simple and fun. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not simple in that you walk around pressing one button the entire game. No, it has a good level of depth to it. While being similar to old side scrolling beat-em-ups, SP adds in an RPG element to the game. This includes everything from leveling up to unlocking new moves to even buying various items and power-ups in stores. Simply put – This game is a must own for all ps3 users (and 360 of course). Despite the fact that there is no online play, that did not affect me in the least. This game perfectly makes me feel nostalgic in every way – including having to play games with 3 other friends next to me on the couch. This brings people together for a great time and just makes the game more enjoyable.
Like I said, please buy this game. The repeatability of it is endless as you will always have fun playing, and did I mention it’s just… amazing?
