Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda (otherwise known as Suda 51) made a name for himself with Killer 7, a conceptually and mechanically baffling game that succeeded creatively in spite of its unfriendly design. Since then, we've seen an extensive paring down of Suda's otherworldly ideas to the point where only the loud and vulgar ones remain. Lollipop Chainsaw continues the trend that No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned started: iconic and ludicrous concepts strung together without much meaning behind them. Suda's latest adds nothing to his current formula aside from an icky layer of sexism that takes a stab at satire, but ultimately exists to titillate those who prefer the words "barely legal" branded on their entertainment. Let's tackle one thing immediately: Lollipop Chainsaw is not a game you want to play in front of your girlfriend. Or any woman. Or anyone who's ever enjoyed the presence of womankind. Our protagonist Juliet doesn't reach far beyond the typical blonde stereotype, and though the game tries to make her charming and likable, pity feels like the more appropriate response.
Lollipop Chainsaw's marketing may well have convinced you that it's nothing more than a crass exercise in titillation, a calculated attempt to draw in a young male audience with a tantalising blend of gratuitous gore and even more gratuitous upskirt shots. The game itself doesn't always do the best job in dispelling that idea: the camera regularly lingers on its cheerleader protagonist's curves, while some will be put off by insults hurled towards heroine Juliet Starling, or the frequently crude parting shots left by the jocks she rescues. "I'm gonna masturbate over you later, Juliet" leers one dribbling douchebag.It should be offensive, but I honestly believe it serves a purpose. Rather than being outright sexist, I think the game's actively mocking misogynist attitudes. Just about every male character - bar Juliet's boyfriend Nick, and he ends up decapitated, accompanying her as a giant keychain attached to her skirt - is either a drooling pervert or undead, while the female lead comes from a close-knit family of strong, zombie-hunting women.
If you asked 100 people what they loved most about Lollipop Chainsaw, you'd get 100 different answers -- and exactly zero of them would have anything to do with the part where you play it. You'd hear about the grindhouse style, brilliant comedy, shocking vulgarity, totally rock-'n-roll soundtrack, or clashing themes. Nobody's instinctive answer would be, â??Oh, yeah, the combat was a lot of fun.â? This is the struggle of Lollipop Chainsaw: It's a one-of-a-kind experience, a game as fearless as it is unforgettable, and it's as sterile as action games come. Few games establish a tone as firmly and quickly as this one. Even fewer are willing to leave you behind if you aren't into it. In the first five minutes, a voluptuous blonde goes from welcoming you to her bedroom to having a steamy shower scene to slaughtering zombies in her high school. If you can't hang with the nonsense from the start, you won't keep up as the obscene insanity spirals further out of control. From top to bottom, Lollipop Chainsaw is self-aware and utterly silly. It has fun with itself and is proud to be what it is. Profanity is as prevalent as innuendo, and the open-faced absurdity is endearing.
Move over Bayonetta, there is another femme fatale gunning for your spot. Suda 51, the man behind over-the-top, inappropriate, and mostly ridiculous yet extremely entertaining games, has done it again. Lollipop Chainsaw is a collaborative effort between Grasshopper Manufacturer and director James Gunn, and it ends up being one of the most unique experiences I've ever got my hands on. Or as unique as a zombie-slaying cheerleader can get. That's not to say the gameplay itself is very innovative. In fact, it's a fairly standard hack-and-slasher that does make some good use of chaining combo attacks with each other. However, it's the rest of the experience that makes this game something to remember. The game revolves around a family of zombie hunters, or more specifically, Juliet Starling — the hot 18-year-old cheerleader from San Romero High. On her 18th birthday, all hell breaks loose thanks to a egomaniacal goth named Swan who unleashes zombies onto the world, as well as five undead gods of rock that all need to be taken care of in order to restore the world back to its original state.
In my house, there was some hype around this game. I had a close family member asking me to request this game for review. It just looked too awesome to pass up, so I made the request. I'm glad I did, especially since Nick handed it to me as soon as we got out of the car from our return drive from E3. Good thing, I was feeling wiped, but as soon as I saw that box art and cheery logo, I was ready. Lollipop Chainsaw is the story of Juliet Starling and her family, a clan of zombie hunters, taking on the task of saving an entire city from the onslaught of the undead. Nearly everyone in her high school turned, students and teachers alike, as did the bus driver, patrons of the local arcade (They have an arcade! *squee*), punk rockers and anyone else encountered on the street. A bunch of terrible, that is. Luckily, you're playing as Juliet, and she's (like) fuckin' crazy-good with her trusty chainsaw! Oh, and on her hip at all times is the decapitated head of her boyfriend Nick, who's somehow not dead, with magical powers of possession and a biting wit. That, coincidentally, is the only ability he has anymore... beyond blinking.
