Summary: Lollipop Chainsaw is the kind of game I dread having to review. Not because I necessarily dislike the game, and not because I foresee it becoming the center of yet another trite videogame review controversy. I dread these kinds of game because attempting to describe them is just so difficult .
Excerpt: Lollipop Chainsaw has the same problem that Shadows of the Damned did, in that it’s fun, but you only really need to play it once and it’s maybe six hours long. It’s got a lot more to keep you coming back than Shadows did, to be fair, but that is saying nothing at all.
Summary: Lollipop Chainsaw is an enjoyable game. It’s a simple linear button masher where you don’t have to think about anything; you just sit back and enjoy the ride. There are some control detection issues and the camera can be a mess, but it’s a fun little one-shot.

Summary: Lollipop Chainsaw is too repetitive for its own good. While it's always fun to play a game that doesn't take itself too seriously, Lollipop doesn't offer much else besides silly sexuality and gory combat.
Pros: Juliet and Nick make a great team, Smooth, albeit boring combat, Generally funny
Cons: Repetitive action and enemies, The overall sexual joke gets old, Short and little replay value
Excerpt: Lollipop Chainsaw's marketing may well have convinced you that it's nothing more than a crass exercise in titillation, a calculated attempt to draw in a young male audience with a tantalising blend of gratuitous gore and even more gratuitous upskirt shots.
Summary: It’s a shame that there isn’t a lot of steak to go along with the tremendous sizzle of Lollipop Chainsaw. The opening cutscene is fantastic, doing a great job of introducing you to the world of Lollipop Chainsaw and making you laugh.
