Summary: To be honest what I approached " Lollipop Chainsaw " I really did not know what to expect but what I got was a mostly enjoyable experience. Admittedly the gameplay can be rather repetitive but thanks to the humour and good presentation this stops proceedings from being too dull and as a result what you have is a pretty fun title to play in small blasts which is definitely aimed at the older gamer.
Excerpt: When it comes to making weird ideas blossom into big budget games, few developers out there can boast about it quite like Japanese developer Goichi Suda, AKA Suda51, can. The creator of Shadows of the Damned , No More Heroes , and Killer7 is back with a new game poking fun at Americanized cheerleader, zombie, and popular culture, with his signature oddball style, weird sexual tones, and action-focused gameplay.
Conclusion: Juliet never manages to overtake some of her peers, which is a shame considering the potential on offer, but Lollipop Chainsaw is still a grand adventure that will entertain from beginning to end. It’s not perfect, but it wears its heart on its sleeve and delivers a game that is plain, good old fashioned fun.
Summary: Twisted yet fun, this third person brawler is fast and has a distinct flow. It is not for children, the easily offended, or those who need their gaming purchases to last a particularly long time... but everyone else will find Lollipop Chainsaw is quite a treat.
Conclusion: Concept: A high school cheerleader chops up waves of zombies in a B-movie-inspired adventure
Graphics: Every visual element, from character animations to environments, looks outdated by several years
Sound: A bizarre combination of music genres, like punk and oldies, forms a surprisingly fun soundtrack
Playability: The controls are sluggish, but the game rarely demands more than it can accommodate.
