A Handful of Gems in a Pile of Garbage

Like all Suda51 games, Lillipop Chainsaw has a special offbeat charm to it. In this case, it's the meshing of two genres that one would consider highly incompatible: Zombie massacres and high school dramas.

The protagonist, Juliet, is the captain of her school's cheerleading squad, and fits the stereotype to a T, but she's also a zombie hunter. This leads to several absurd moments where you see a valleygirl slaughtering a horde of zombies in highschool clothes with a flashy chainsaw, while yelling "OMG!" among many other one-liners.
To serve as a foil for all this, Juliet takes her boyfriend Nick along for the ride (literally) who offers constant commentary on the absurdity of everything happening around him. Then, there are the bosses, who are all styled around musical genres and play up the stereotypes in several amusing ways.
Needless to say, the game is full of charm. And the lines spoken by many of the characters frequently put a smile on my face.
Unfortunately, to experience those delightful moments, I had to play the game. I have to give the game credit for not being a pure button masher, but not button mashing is pretty much all you need to do to be a pro at the game. Juliet is an agile character with an arsenal of crowd-clearing attacks, which only grows as you unlock new moves. Considering her enemies are all brain-dead zombies (with character nonetheless), this arsenal quickly reduces them to cannon fodder. As is a common problem with Suda51 games, the enemies often tend to basically function the same, differing thematically, but fighting like zombies.
Another major faux pas is the game's reliance on quicktime events, especially the instant death ones. The game is riddled with them, and they never feel satisfying when properly executed, as is often the case with quicktime events. Sadly, in the final boss fight, half of the fight involves quicktime events.

I'd recommend a rental for that Suda51 experience, but that's all it has going for it.
