I ask because a store near me has a pre-owned copy of it that's complete and I'm thinking about getting it. It looks like a hack n slash/ beat 'em up.

But I had a couple questions about the game.

1. Is there a story line/story mode to it? Because I've been watching videos on Youtube and it seems like it's a never ending game that has no ending to it. It's just level after level after level of hack n slashing with enemies that get more powerful each time you cycle through the game.

2. Is it more RPG-ish or more straight beat 'em up? I ask because I liked RPG's like Diablo, Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance and so on and I liked the older style beat 'em ups like Double Dragon and such.

Just kinda curious on all of this since I don't want to toss another game into the triple digit physical backlog I have on the PS3 alone.

I haven't played myself, but the game has a good meta score and complete summary. I'll probably get it for my Vita.

More like a straight beat-em-up with some story going on in the background. I thought it was alright, got it as a PS+ game last August. I don't really think I'd pay money for it at this point.

I thought it looked familiar from the PS+ games.

I guess if it comes down to it I could keep it in my backlog/collection if I grab it. It also kind of reminded me Golden Axe, which I really liked in the arcades back in the day.

Quote from SelfRighteousDbag(Romeo from CAG) :
From my own experiences, he uses and abuses the sites he is a member of. He cares about no one but himself. If there's a deal ANYWHERE, he is the person to buy 100x of whatever it is to resell for profit, and usually get the deal pulled or canceled.

He lives near me. A couple years ago, he bought five copies of a game on clearance at target closest to me. Bragged about it here then soon found out the trade value wasn't worth a 'flip'. When I called him on it for being a scumbag for buying out the stock, he PM'ed me and told me he would now purposely return them to a target far away from me so I can't get a copy for myself.
Whine more, please.

I played it on the Vita which I understand is a better version due to a couple of touch screen needs.

It is mostly a beat-em-up with some elements of an RPG in there in terms of weapons, armor and stats. Story is there, not as shallow as most of the Vita RPG's out there but it is rather meaningless.

It is really repetitive, I lost interest rather quickly.

IMO, if one wants a retro beat-em-up on PS3, it's hard to do better than Scott Pilgrim.

Not a good one. You should try another similar game.

It is one of those ends where it says you bet the final boss, but there is no bigger threat. Then you replay the game with harder enemies. I just played it up to that point with my brother and said that's enough for me.
