Summary: Lots of over the top rave reviews for this game and most I would agree with but here's some of the issues I had playing this game. First off normal is waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy to easy. There is a total of six stages and lots of loading spread out that serves only as far as I can tell to make the stages appear longer than they really are. Often times I found Juliet stuck in a chainsaw like pose and it takes of few seconds to get her to move again. The camera view is awful.
Summary: Chainsaw is a symbol for a lot of people as a sign of dread (considering the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise), however, the folks at Grasshopper decided that an 18 year old blonde cheerleader with a chainsaw in hand would be a better ass-kicker than Leatherface on any given day and they get it right, though, not completely.
Crazy, stupid, ridiculous, hilarious, sexiest, cliche game. Rent it first.

Summary: I was very skeptical at first, but after reading a few positive reviews I decided to give it a shot. Considered as action game, Lollipop Chainsaw is very poor: superficial and inaccurate gameplay, very random and irritating at times. However, this is more like a reminder of what videogames are about: having fun.
Summary: The computer game market wants to be seen as a mature past time that can be enjoyed by adults in the same way as an art film or trip to the theatre. However, some of us still like to watch the Arnie classics and would rather see a Ska band play a gig than watch an actor tread the boards. This is the attitude to gaming that Grasshopper Manufacture take; they produce some great games, but they make sure they remain fun.
Summary: This game is fun to play at first but soon becomes repetitive. I'd recommend it for rental or to buy for £10-£15. You'll know if you'll like this game if you like hack and slash. It's full of one liners which while funny at first soon become monotonous. There is plenty of powers to unlock as you play through the game. There is also lots of mini games which can brake up the game some which is a good thing. The graphic styling is unique.
Summary: Okay, maybe that's an unfair title, as this is actually a really fun game with some genuinely amusing ideas and with a well put together story and characters driving it. However, there's no escaping the fact that this game is SHORT... like really short... and the replay value is questionable at best.
