Review: Lollipop Chainsaw

A zombie game that sees you in control of a cheerleader named Juliet, Armed with he boyfriends head Nick must do battle with the undead, On a Juliets birthday of all days. Luckily her whole family is here to help and being trained as a zombie hunter helps. This is still yet another zombie game but with a refreshing take on it.
Pros:
  • Cartoon graphics that suit the game very well
  • A whole host of unlocks ranging from new moves to new clothes
  • A different take on the zombie genre which is refreshing to experience
  • Crazy other the top combos and move sets that look sweet
  • Leader board chasers will love the score attack mentality
  • A solid soundtrack with a mix of hard rock, 80s tunes and a bit of techno chucked in
  • You have the option to make your own song list from songs collected and bought
  • Humour help keeps the story going
  • Mini games are a great diversion
  • Boss battles are straight forward and easy to play
Cons:
  • Long and frequent loading screens
  • Short game. On normal it took me just under 6 hours
  • Occasional screen tearing
  • Camera angle can cause problems when your surrounded
  • The button layout means you can accidentally trigger special moves or your meter when you dont want too
  • QTE over load. So many of em at so many parts it really annoys more than anything
In summary it is an average game that played in short bursts can be enjoyable. There will be a section every other level that will annoy you and cause you to constantly re try. But with the humour and the main girl being a cheerleader you can get through it. So even if the game does get to you just sit back and realise you have a cheerleader with a chainsaw in your control, And get your pixel perv on!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
