Greetings mortals. I am DracoJames102 and I am here to give you a review.

I am a big ‘Star Wars’ fan. I grew up with the special edition of the classic trilogy (I am expecting hate mail for saying that.) and I absolutely love those movies. When I heard that there was going to be a new Star Wars movie going to be released in 1999, I was so exited. When I finally got in the cinema and watched ‘Episode 1 The Phantom Menace’, I did not know what to think of it after I left the cinema All I knew was it was not nearly as good as the original trilogy. When ‘Episode 2: Attack of the Clones’ came out, I was so bored and uninterested after I came out of the cinema. I could not remember a single thing about that movie and that was not at all good for a kid that loves ‘Star Wars’. When I saw ‘Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith’, I really thought it was a big step up from the last movie. I really liked it, but it still wasn’t up to par with the original trilogy. Overall the prequels were lackluster in comparison and they got noticeably worse over the years.

Greetings mortals. I am DracoJames102 and I am here to give you a review.

In the late 2000s, a Canadian cartoonist named Bryan Lee O’Malley published a series of graphic novels called ‘Scott Pilgrim VS. The World.’ These novels followed the story of a 23 year old boy living in Toronto called Scott Pilgrim, who is in a relationship with a girl called Ramona Flowers. But in order to keep dating her, Scott must fight and defeat the league of evil exes, which was formed by Ramona’s seven evil ex-boyfriends who were determined on sticking a knife in Scott and Ramona’s relationship. In my opinion, the comics are really good. They managed to tell a decent story with likable characters, great artwork, awesome fight scenes and a moral about letting go of self-obsession over somebody.

These graphic novels were so popular they spawned a big blockbuster movie and a video game adaptation that was released for the Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network, both of which were released in 2010. For this review I am going to look at the video game adaptation of this oh-so-popular graphic novel series. Will it be a faithful adaptation or will it be added to the stinking pile of garbage where the movie licensed video games lie? This is my review of ‘Scott Pilgrim VS. The World:The Game.’

With Download Festival just around the corner (Even though you can’t see me through the text I’m quaking with excitement) I thought I’d share my band plan on who to see, why and just other random funny stuff.
