Lollipop Chainsaw is awesome. I give it an 11 out of 10. I understand why gamers hate it, but for all the reasons they think it the worst game ever, I think it completely awesome.
The average gamer will pretend that visuals, sounds, story, dialog, etc. don't matter. All that matters, they claim, is gameplay. This is obviously untrue--If it were, why are they always so excited for prettier remakes of old games? Lollipop Chainsaw is a beautiful game with great music--much better than the average retro-wannabe platformer--, entertaining characters, and dialog that I'll find myself quoting now and then. Unfortunately, Suda 51's masterpiece committed a cardinal sin against the gaming community: He insults nerds.
Gamers are always telling everybody else to chillax whenever a game offends an entire group of people, but these same people get butt-hurt when a game pokes fun at them, even in jest such as this game. The antagonist is a NERD while the protagonists are chereleaders and jocks. This brings back bad memories for the average gamer, and so they'll hate the game even though the game's just a parody of everything it does. "You wouldn't be laughing if they made fun of you,," the gamers will say. Yes, I admit, I'ma total jock who dates a super hot cheerleader, but even if the game was diffferent, and my characters were the bad guys, I'd still like it. After all, I liked Mean Girls, didn't I?
Your average retro platformer like Mario or Rayman don't have any personality, and it makes the game pretty boring. Lolllipop Chainsaw is full of perosnality, and although most gamers will go: "Eww! Girls! I don't like this game. They're annoying. Give me that stupid purple star on MArio Galaxy 2 instead!" those of us who like good music, rockabilly, 80s stuff, and satire will love this game.
The only complaint I have is the abundance of quicktime events, but that's forgivable. It's short, but most people don't sppend entire weekends just playing games. I still don't get these people who go: "This game's only forty hours? That's just one weekend for me. No thank you!"
In summary, this game is better than the typical crap that people like, but most gamers won't appreciate it because they're overly sensitive.
My final score: 9.5 out of 10
