This game looks so freaking cool!!!!
I love this game no matter what!
Sage, I think that you missed the point of Lollipop Chainsaw. It’s part homage, part satire. It’s not supposed to be good. The “badness” of the game harkens back to the B-movies of old, while taking some jabs at music, movies, games, and the industries that create them along the way. For an example, things like an overdone QTE sequence is, in the eyes of someone willing to take the joke, a parody. It’s just some lighthearted poking fun at how gaming has come to rely on these sequences for literally everything… all presented in a silly little dance sequence that tells you, yes, it’s OK to laugh at this.
Also, I don’t see these control problems everyone mentions. It only took me a tiny bit of time to get the controls down, and while the combos may not be “essential”, they are a ton of fun! I’ve played through the entire game, and I loved almost every second. I do have to admit though, that Lollipop Chainsaw could have benefited from a proper booklet, and an actual explanation of what a “homing attack” is.
