Any self-respecting side-scrolling beat’em up needs a varied playable cast to be fun, and in this regard Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition completely delivers, as all characters are extremely fun to use and totally viable to complete the game.
The available characters, while sharing some common techniques, are all different from one another, so it can take some time to find one that best suits your playstyle. And if you’re just starting out to learn the game, you will definitely want to pick Scott, as he is the most balanced character in the entire cast.
So, what makes Scott a solid choice? Let us find out.
Scott is the main character in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition and the most likely choice for those who are playing the game for the first time. Scott is extremely quick and his attacks have little to no delay, meaning that you can string them together easily and get out of the way quickly as needed. Even if you have been playing the game for some time, Scott can be an extremely good choice, as he can control space and handle crowds extremely well.
Scott’s starting stats are 100 HP and 100 GP.
Scott has two unique special techniques. Tech Attack 1, learned at level 16, is performed by pressing up and heavy attack. This technique is quite good, as it has excellent range and knockback, making it perfect for when you are surrounded by enemies.
Tech Attack 2, learned via special training, is performed by pressing down and heavy attack. This move is a lot less reliable than Tech Attack 1, as Scott needs some time to charge the attack. It is still a very good technique to get out of danger while dealing massive amounts of damage.
