Juliet never manages to overtake some of her peers, which is a shame considering the potential on offer, but Lollipop Chainsaw is still a grand adventure that will entertain from beginning to end. It’s not perfect, but it wears its heart on its sleeve and delivers a game that is plain, good old fashioned fun.

Warum sollte ich mich über eine Spielzeit von knapp fünf Stunden aufregen, wenn ich über den gesamten Zeitraum gut unterhalten werde? Die Puschel- und Kettensägen-Action erinnert häufig an ein dreidimensionales Streets of Rage oder Final Fight und geht locker von der Hand.

Still, Lollipop Chainsaw is just plain fun, and it's hard not to get caught up in its unbridled exuberance.

Suda 51 cunha Lollipop Chainsaw com todos os elementos típicos do seu trabalho: sexismo, violência e um humor bizarro. Sem inovar ou quebrar barreiras de género, Lollipop Chainsaw está seguro do seu lugar, sem crises de identidade.

Lollipop Chainsaw is het ideale antigif tegen de dertien-in-een-dozijn-actiespellen van tegenwoordig, met een obscuur verhaal en gekke personages, evenals talrijke geinige verwijzingen naar de wereld van games, muziek, film en tv. Soms wordt het alleen wel wat té flauw, en de basisgameplay doet wat stroef aan.
Lollipop Chainsaw est un titre qui tient presque toutes ses promesses. On s'y divertit, on s'y défoule beaucoup, on sourit aussi parfois aux répliques efficaces et aux situations décalées. Le charme des graphismes agit, la bande son vous emporte vraiment ailleurs. Mais petit à petit l'enthousiasme s’atténue devant la redondance de la mise en scène et de la construction des niveaux. La courte durée de vie du soft vous empêchera de vous lasser complètement. Un mal pour un bien donc. Lollipop Chainsaw se révèle très sympathique, mais vous devrez vous lancer dans l'aventure en toute connaissance de cause.

In an era when we seem to take video games far too seriously, Lollipop Chainsaw comes along and forces you to smile and have fun. It's silly and at times downright stupid, but you can't deny that it's a remarkably fun and addictive button masher that never takes itself too seriously. It may not be for everyone, but Lollipop Chainsaw is definitely worth checking out.

Suda is an undisciplined designer. As with his comedy, he throws every idea at his game design, hoping something will stick. He’s an artistic, if idiosyncratic, thinker, so invariably some ideas do succeed, but the assault of jokes, ideas and vignettes ends up as unwieldy as it is characterful. The result is a game in which there’s as much to celebrate as to berate, as much to admire as there is to admonish.

Lollipop Chainsaw est un délicieux cocktail de violence, d'humour et de charme, sublimé par les facéties créatives d'un Suda 51 qui aime toujours autant partir en sucette, et par un parti pris artistique très réussi. Qu'il est fun de décapiter des zombies à la tronçonneuse sur des rythmes pop, hard rock ou disco ! Pour autant, l'expérience s'avère trop proche de celle offerte par No More Heroes pour nous surprendre. Qui plus est, elle pâtit de quelques défauts malheureux, comme une caméra capricieuse, des loadings trop fréquents et un aspect technique décevant. Si l'on y ajoute une durée de vie franchement insuffisante, on conclura qu'à l'image d'une sucette, Lollipop Chainsaw procure un petit plaisir coupable et savoureux, aussi éphémère que dispensable.

Lollipop Chainsaw certainly isn't terrible. Despite its flaws, the combat is still mechanically sound. Most of the characters are genuinely likable, and I found them endearing by the end, even if the dialogue often misses the mark. What's heart-breaking about it all is that Grasshopper can do better. With a few tweaks to the combat – weaker zombies, and perhaps more of them – the experience could be much more entertaining. As is, Lollipop Chainsaw is a serviceable confection, though something of a bitter one.
I cannot help but think Lollipop Chainsaw would have been better served as an Xbox Live Arcade game or maybe a budget title. While the games visuals, witty dialogue and chainsaw welding combat is certainly entertaining, the game is just a tad too thin on features in order for me to recommend it, especially with the lack of any cooperative play. On top of it all, the wonky camera issues, and other combat related issues I experienced pull the entire experience down a few notches for me. In the end, Lollipop Chainsaw comes across as merely an average game, but sometimes average is ok, and you may just end up enjoying this game.

Is Lollipop Chainsaw worth the effort? Sometimes, it is. It is fun when, eventually, it gets its ass into gear. And it is endearing, when it isn't actively working towards ruining its main character. What's perhaps most important is there's something, maybe just a little thing, that's actually thoughtful about Lollipop Chainsaw. It might be intentional and it might not be, but here is a game whose very existence poses some pointed questions about sexuality, and femininity, and what we've come to accept as women in games. That's a good thing, regardless of the quality of the game, but it is often difficult to rationalize in the face of the panty shots and the lollipop sucking. Is it enough to ask the hard questions out of one side of your mouth while regurgitating the same tired tropes out of the other?
IGN (Jun 14, 2012)
Lollipop Chainsaw doesn’t even attempt to differentiate itself from the genre, and most of what it does try new in the realm of its characters and writing ultimately ends up taking away from an incredible-on-paper action game. The music and sidekick are really all you can rely on to stay great from start to finish. The rest of Lollipop Chainsaw is all over the place before it ultimately settles for mediocrity and disappointment.
