There are some games that I could not be any more into and Lollipop Chainsaw here is one of them. This game is brought to us by crazy game designer Suda51 and crazy filmmaker James Gunn, two people I am a huge fan of so this was a game I was following from early development all the way to its release back in 2012. This is one of those games that you either love or not and I 100 percent love it.
Juliet Starling, Hot Cheerleader, Hot Zombie Killer
The story of the game is freaking nuts, but I love it. Juliet Starling is a hot cheerleader who has just turned 18. At school, she is living her best high school life when a zombie outbreak happens!
This zombie outbreak is the work of a dark individual who is trying to merge different realms. Thankfully, Juliet is part of a family of zombie hunters so she is taking on the task of stopping this.
Lollipop Chainsaw is a story that is crazy and funny and pretty vulgar too. Juliet is joined on her adventure by her boyfriend Nick... who got bitten trying to protect her and Juliet saves him by chopping off his head and using magic to keep him alive! The story is a ton of fun and full of very memorable moments.
Hey Micky, Your So Fine!
The visuals of Lollipop Chainsaw are great and hold up very well to this day. The game is gross, full of blood and guts and violence. However, this is offset by the bright sparks, cheerleading, and flashes of color and glitter that happens. It sounds like it would be a real clash of styles, but it works very well and makes for a very unique kind of look for a game.
The soundtrack and voice acting are just as good. Tara Strong is one of my favorite voice actors and she brings Juliet to life very well. The music is awesome and even though you will hear, Hey Mickey a million times by the end of the game, it never actually gets old.
Hack, Slash, And Chainsaw
The gameplay is a ton of fun. Some people find it very repetitive and even a tad rough around the edges, but I just find it a ton of fun. It is a 3rd person hack and slash game where you kick a ton of ass as Juliet. She has some fun moves that she can do and these awesome finishing moves. You can unlock combos as you go and sometimes the game does force you to mix things up a bit as you try and take down hordes of zombies. It also has some boss battles that mix things up to.
Lollipop Chainsaw does try and keep the gameplay fresh by adding in a few quick time sections too. Some of these have you putting Nick’s head on the body of a zombie which is fun. Juliet also gets to run really fast in certain sections and these can be tricky to control at first, but they are still a nice addition to the gameplay. You are probably looking at around 6 to 8 hours to beat the game, but it is the kind of game that you can play through again and again.
As you can tell, Lollipop Chainsaw is a game that I adore. I have lost count of the number of times that I have beaten it. I can see why it did not click for some people, but this is one of my comfort and palate cleanser games that I can always fire up and have a great time with it. No matter if I play all the way through it or just take on a couple of levels. Without a doubt, this is a game you have to give a try.
