How Long Does It Take To Beat Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game?

After a decade of being lost, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is finally making its triumphant return. The title from Ubisoft was first released in 2010 in order to promote the film of the same name. The game itself ties in more with the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series, but it was still one hell of a ride that critics and gamers enjoyed. Sadly, its life cycle was short-lived, and the digital-exclusive game was taken down from PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 online stores in 2014. Now that the game is back on a variety of platforms and has a physical copy, players who didn't get the opportunity to play the game the first time now have the opportunity to sink some time into the 16-bit beat-'em-up title.


Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game allows the player to take on the role of a handful of the main characters in the graphic novel series. After choosing their character, the game will have the player fight their way through seven levels. The recent release of the game includes DLC from the original title, but even with extra features, this game doesn't take very long to finish.

Prepare for a short but absolutely engaging ride

Since Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game previously released in 2010, there's a solid amount of gameplay time data on HowLongToBeat. On average, just playing through the game's main story takes about four hours, while playing through some of the extra content doubles the time. A player who plans on playing the game to absolute completion — which could mean unlocking every achievement or completing the game with every character — can expect their run to take between 12 and 13 hours.


With only a handful of levels to play through, it's only natural that the game wouldn't take too long to beat. A review from Windows Central also points out that the game is relatively short and can be a bit of a slog if you're playing by yourself. However, reviews from GamingTrend and Digital Chumps praised the game's combat system, highlighting how its stylish gameplay adds to the overall experience, no matter how much time players put in. Gamers who are looking for a fun title that isn't too much of a time sink will find Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game to be right up their alley.
