The Good: Let me start off by saying that I did enjoy this game. Who doesn't love chopping up zombies? I also, enjoyed the story of a born and raise zombie hunting cheerleader who comes from a zombie hunting family. The graphics were good and combo attacks looked stunning as zombies were decapitated with rainbows and sparkles. Oh, and my favorite, you can unlock a bunny suit for Juliet and kill zombies as a giant chainsaw wielding bunny.
The Bad: Its not a very hard game. I've played through it several times and the only thing that seems to change with difficulty is the amount of lollipops you're allowed to carry and the number of zombies that pop up, but boss fights are the same no matter what level of difficulty you play on. Also, the timing between button press and action is off noticeably and most of the time the homing button does not work at all, which is funny because at one point your sister calls and tells you to use it more.
The Okay: The dialogue through out the game varies from laugh out loud funny to what the F and then to just crude. It's the typical humor that can be seen in other games like No More Heroes and Shadow of the Damned. It's not bad, but the type of humor that gets funnier as maturity levels go down.
All in all: It's great if you like killing zombies and enjoy unlocking loads of outfits to play dress up with. I would recommend renting or borrowing the game before buying it because buying it if you don't love it will lead to hard core buyer's remorse.

A quick 6 levels. It's fun and quirky. Feels like a comic book. Pretty good humor, far too many unlockables. The game is going to be a grindfest if you want to see everything, but for a 1 or 2 day rental from Gamefly it is a super success.
Lollipop Chainsaw is the perfect game for you to play if you like a short-kinda long game and entertainmant that will keep you playing the game constantly. Lollipop Chainsaw features a high school cheerleader that rides to school one day and finds 7/8 of the school is now zombified. Julliet and her family are zombie hunters and are trying to keep the civilians from turning. this game is an easy trophy/achievement game and an upgrade health strength etc... Replay value= HIGH. I would recommend renting and the buying if u like.
