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: 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: When Suda51 is involved in a game you know there's a far chanceyou’re going to get something that’s a little outside the box, perhaps even a smidgeon off the wall, and that’s why we love the guy so much. The past eleven years has seen Grasshopper Interactive release some of the most interesting, original and downright quirky titles in recent memory including No More Heroes, last year’s horribly underrated Shadows of the Damned and, now, Lollipop Chainsaw.
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.
Excerpt: Lollipop Chainsaw is a romantic love story that lands smack in the middle of a zombie apocalypse! The game starts out in a sexy blonde's bedroom where she is stretching in her panties while talking openly about sex and barely being legal. You can already sense that this girl is going to give you a good time no matter what!
Conclusion: Amidst an important layer of absurdity brought to you by the likes of Suda51, James Gunn, and Jimmy Urine, Lollipop Chainsaw has a lot in common with the delightful 8-bit games of my youth. That’s a bizarre statement to say about a game in which one of the characters threatens to rip my taint off, but valid when considering Lollipop Chainsaw deals in the same circles of raw delirium that have been vaguely absent for two decades.
Excerpt: Um jogo sobre uma líder-de-torcida gostosa que chupa pirulitos de forma sugestiva não é para qualquer um. Tem um selinho, na capa do jogo, indicando que a idade mínima para colocar Lollipop Chainsaw no seu videogame é de 17 anos. Aparentemente, a maturidade para lidar com Juliet Starling e seus pirulitos vai além da faixa etária.
