Movies rarely present a story that is well-woven as a game. We always find that the game tries to simulate the events of the film so much that it fails to provide the same quality of the film and also presents itself as a good game. Some developers took the events of the film as a reference for the game and a slice of them provided good works such as games. Classic Aladdin, some Lord of the Rings games and of course a different slice of Spiderman games, and here we are, in this article we delve more deeply into Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, this game that was available around the time of the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, but the game is based on the storyboard events.
The events of the game revolve around the hero Scott and his colleagues in fighting in 7 different stages, and in each stage you try to get rid of its leader while they are close colleagues to one of the other characters that will help you in this journey, which is the character Ramona. Of course, the game is not considered new because it was previously released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010 and was developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Four years after its launch, the game was removed from both the Playstation and the Xbox digital store due to some property rights issues. And now she is back in the market again.
The game system is relatively simple and familiar, from the type of “Beat em ups” games. During each stage, you will move from one region to another, and a different segment of enemies will pounce on you with different classes and fighting styles, and your goal is to eliminate each group and advance to the leader of the stage. The game supports up to four players. The game is designed mainly for group play, due to the fact that the game experience is relatively individually unbalanced, and this is due to the amount of enemies facing them, which killed the game’s rapid pace. .
You will find some elements of RPG games on the one hand that each character has its own level, and as you advance in the game, this character will have more skills that make the playing style deeper and deeper, which makes the game faster in the last hours of play, while playing it collectively, the game will not become easier, but rather You will find yourself enjoying its fast rhythm, which contributes to this fast pace. Firstly, it is the addictive “Chiptune” music from Anamanaguchi, and the amount of connecting the beats between you and your team members makes you go deeper and do different combos on the ground and in the sky.
The level development system in the game is a little random and does not show you how much you have left until your level increases, other than this, you will find different stores during each stage, but they are hidden and integrated with the design of the stage to the point that it is difficult to find these stores even though they are a very important factor in the game because it is the place Only you can exchange your currency that you collected while fighting in it, the shop will provide you with items to increase the number of your attempts or games to buy.
This new version brings all the additions together with fully online gameplay. In addition to the four additional modes such as Zombie Mode, “Dodgeball”, and more characters. The amazing thing about this game is its artistic direction that is still distinctive even 11 years after its launch, and this is thanks to its artistic direction, drawn and beautifully engineered, to the point where you feel that you are following animated stories. This other than hints at classic actions from games like Super Mario, Megaman, and of course, River city ransom.
From my experience of the game again until after 11 years, I found myself attracted to this game with the same degree of enthusiasm, but I wished there were general improvements to the game such as its balance so that the start of the game would be smoother for individual play, another point is to clarify the development system in general. Glad that many will have the opportunity to try this game again or for the first time, because it is like a message addressed to fans of classic games and at the same time attracts you because of its rapid rotation, which is disrupted at some moments and finally its graphics, which are still unique to this day.
