Every now and again a game comes along that reaffirms a long-time player’s love for video games. Sometimes this comes in the form of a purely distilled experience; such as the offerings of Blizzard, Infinity Ward and Bungie. Other times it can be from games that are a significant departure from the norm, as evidenced most recently by Demon’s Souls, maybe even Lost Planet 2. Regardless of the approach, some element of the game breaks through all the static and industry trends and shows you why you didn’t put down that controller two decades ago.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is just such an experience.
