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 . No words will ever truly do them justice, and no description can ever adequately substitute for a firsthand experience.
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. The sixty-dollar price point is the biggest issue here. At fifteen or twenty dollars, Lollipop Chainsaw would be an absolute no-brainer.
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. The game itself doesn't always do the best job in dispelling that idea: the camera regularly lingers on its cheerleader protagonist's curves, while some will be put off by insults hurled towards heroine Juliet...
Conclusion: Lollipop Chainsaw offre une aventure très décalée et son ambiance y est pour beaucoup dans sa séduction. Grasshopper s'est donné les moyens de réaliser un titre atypique, hors du commun. C'est ce qui fait l'essentiel de la force du jeu. Des graphismes différents, une bande son marquante, une mise en scène détonante, et des doublages efficaces, incontestablement ce titre dispose d'une ambiance sur lequel il peut se reposer.
Pros: L'ambiance décalée, Graphismes et bande son, Prise en main rapide, Des boss hauts en couleur
Cons: Une progression redondante, Une réalisation technique imparfaite, Durée de vie, Pas très difficile
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. There isn’t any real replay value unless you want to go back and collect objects and unlockables, but even as a one and done sort of game, Lollipop Chainsaw is worth playing through.
Excerpt: This may be my shortest review ever. Lollipop Chainsaw . It's a game about an 18 year old, top-heavy cheerleader in a short skirt that carries a chainsaw and slays zombies. 10! No, 11! If I didn't have a small amount of integrity, I could leave it at that because Lollipop was quite possibly the most entertaining game I've played all year. And I'm thankful I didn't listen to any of the other critics, otherwise I never would have picked this one up. Lollipop is a rarity.
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. The world is so creative and fun to be in that it’s really unfortunate the gameplay is so mediocre.
