Lollipop(lollipop oh lollilollilollilollipop) Chainsaw.

A bevy of beautiful colors, bloodied limbs, and barely covered buts; this game takes shock humor to a whole new level. The game starts with a narration by the protagonist Juliet Starling who wastes zero time establishing her character, the supporting cast, and the fact that she’s a world class zombie hunter. A former student at San Romero High school who has the appearance of Ozzy’s mutated testicle and goes by the name Swan decides to get revenge on the school and the city since everyone apparently disliked his attire. Swan decides to bring forth five purveyors of darkness which is a fancy term for five genre specific zombie rockers who make it their business to bring about their own individual brand of musical injustice. It’s up to Juliet, her decapitated boyfriend, and her entire family to stop the zombie horde. Suda51 brings his A game when every part of this experience feel s fresh, interesting, and above all else, fun. The primary gameplay is your typical hack and slash gore fest with the primary weapon being a versatile bedazzled chainsaw. The different weapons such as a makeshift rifle and an upgrade that allows the chainsaw to be used as a mode of transportation vary the gameplay and will never leave you without several ways in which to dispatch your undead foes. The gameplay is often broken up with somewhat tedious mini games such as zombie baseball which do nothing more than give you more reason to cut off the main villain’s head with your bare hands.  I was able to play the whole game, which has about an eight to nine hour play time, in one sitting but that shouldn’t discourage a buy as this game has a lot of replay potential and a ton of stuff to collect like different costumes, lollipops, and tease worthy concept art. The game also supports an amazing soundtrack which fits each and every varied level environment each with its own unique layered boss battles. The game also features an amazing cast that brings to life the characters and their hilarious and Americanized dialogue, written by James Gunn, led by legendary goddess of voice actors herself Tara Strong who from the popular comedy central show “Drawn Together” has shown that she’s not afraid to let her mouth need a good helping of Orbitz. This game gets two swollen thumbs in the air and a recommendation for its creative colorful design, its ability to make killing things fun, and by no small feat Juliet Starling who earns her spot amongst the legendary campy monster hunters like Lynn Peltzer from Gremlins.

This has, is, and always will be my opinion. Thanks and see ya later.
