When I was thirteen, I tried to play the guitar. I wasn’t good at it right away, and I found that unfair, frustrating, and knew getting even a little bit better was going to take a lot of time, effort, and callused fingers. Playing Scott Pilgrim vs The World is a lot like playing the guitar.

I remembered playing this retro side scroller when it released in 2010, and as soon as the NES-inspired soundtrack started, I figured it would all start coming back to me. But just like how listening to Snow over and over won’t help you shred like Red Hot Chili Peppers, hearing the music didn’t actually imbue my fingertips with magic nostalgia skill. I tried out a few different characters, but each time could only get around halfway through the first level. 

Scott Pilgrim vs The World isn’t the hardest game I’ve played. There will be players who can learn its ways quickly enough that they plow through it. But I’m no slouch: This was clearly a game built for grinding. It expects you to try and fail again and again, and with only seven levels, that’s how it offers an experience with longevity. For players expecting to pick it back up immediately, you might find the early stages slower going than the colourful carnage you remember.

You level up individual characters each time, so in switching characters to try them all out, I was unnecessarily resetting myself to zero. Once I stuck with Ramona Flowers, I started to see real progress, but it was still a bit of a grind.
