Lollipop Chainsaw isn't fantastic, but what it does it does decently. The story is a throwaway and silly, expected when your game is about a chainsaw-wielding high school cheerleader toting around a disembodied head. The game is quite humorous if not a bit crass at times, but this is a Grasshopper Manufacture/Suda-51 game so...expected.
Graphics are what you'd expect from a small studio/budget game from a few years back - acceptable but nothing flashy or standout. The soundtrack is actually pretty great, you'll recognize a lot of the tunes. For some reason, it reminded me of an old Tony Hawk soundtrack.
Combat is typical combo-based mashing...you'll become good friends with your X and Y buttons. Combat moves a decent clip, and there aren't many areas which feel overly drawn out. Basically, the game play is done pretty well all things considered.
The best part? It never overstays its welcome. While the stages run a bit long, the game is only 4-6 hours long making it a perfect rental for those looking to get that silly weird zombie killing fix.
