Lollipop Chainsaw Review

Where do I even start with this one? Okay so you are this Cheerleader in High school and you have to fight a bunch of zombies. It turns out that you are a zombie hunter and you are from a family of a bunch of other hunters. They hunt random supernatural monsters. You also have a hot pink chainsaw and your name is Juliet Starling. From what I understand the Starling last name is a reference to Clarice Starling from Hannibal. Basically you run around your high school and travel to different areas of the city in order to kill as many zombies as you can.

Along the way you collect different things for different achievements. You can unlock outfits as well. Some of them more slutty than others. Juliet is kind of a bimbo? But she’s also pretty bad ass and knows Karate. Her teacher was a pervert. You get to meet him at one point.

To be honest I would have never played this game if I hadn’t seen feminists complaining about it. It’s not surprising why they’d get upset with this game. Even just the cover art on the box. I doubt many of them have actually played it or even looked into the context. Despite being a scantly dressed and some what idiotic blond teenager, it’s not that bad. It’s got laugh out loud moments and the voice acting is well done too. I also doubt it’s a game that’s ever been meant to be taken completely seriously. I found it addictive and played it a few times. Mostly just so I could collect the different lollipops and things in order to unlock the different outfits and other accessories you can get.

The game kept me entertained which was the most important part. Watching Juliet run around and say her bimbo lines was pretty awesome. The final boss that you have to fight was pretty cool too (if not frustrating because it took me a moment to figure out how the hell I was supposed to kill him in certain areas). There is even a feature (if you want to call it that) where it’s nearly impossible to actually look up Juliet’s skirt if you are trying. Yet ironically when she jumps and does a bunch of other combat moves you can see her panties anyway.

Despite this game being about sexual barely legal eye-candy and “objectification” Juliet proves that you don’t need to be the smartest girl ever to completely kick ass. Not only that but she does say she speaks Japanese. All in all if you are looking for a zombie game that isn’t over the top serious (like Resident Evil or Dead Island) and want to have fun for a few hours I entirely recommend this game. It’ll give you laughs several times over. As a zombie horror movie fan who loves killing shit with virtual chainsaws, I definitely give this one a thumbs up.
