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
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.
Excerpt: New original properties: they're something that gamers lament never seeing often enough. At times, it seems as though the video game industry is snagged in a sequel mill. Yet, every once in a while, a new game promises to break the mold with something new to offer.
Pros: The inherent joy of chainsawing zombies, Inventively funny script and soundtrack, Grasshopper's unique style
Cons: Lacks variety, Too short on content, Not good enough to support its pedigree
Summary: Lollipop Chainsaw, the latest creation from Suda 51 is a wonderfully satisfying, if not slightly braindead romp that slices and dices the past half-century of pop culture and slams choice pieces together as hard as it can.
Pros: Over-the-top presentation equal parts Clueless, Buffy, and Scott Pilgrim with a touch of John Hughes., Combat system has plenty of visually entertaining combos., Tons to unlock and challenges to beat, adding replay value.
Cons: Low-brow humor and bland protagonist make for jokes that are extremely hit-and-miss., Reverse difficulty curve where game gets easier as you go and starts out hard., No save system, with uneven level length and design.
Excerpt: Designed by the madcap mind of Suda 51 and his Grasshopper Manufacture studio, whose previous credits include cult hits No More Heroes and Killer7, Lollipop Chainsaw is poised to be the developer's most successful title yet, if only for the premise.
Excerpt: ‘Hey perv, don’t be looking up my skirt!’ admonishes Juliette to a crawling, bleeding zombie whilst doing a back flip and giving me the best view of her panties possible without sitting on my face.
Excerpt: Suda51 and his Grasshopper Manufacture studio are known for iconic and madcap games, and this latest undead-meets-cheerleaders festival of fan-service is no exception. Jae straps on his shortest skirt and steps into battle.
Pros: Great selection of music, new and old. Comedic banter between main characters is entertaining. One great level brings back 8-bit gaming nostalgia.
Cons: The odd button layout constantly confuses, even with repetitious button, combos. Lazy animation throughout repeated scenes. Volatile difficulty curve, early bosses seem harder than later ones.
