I got Lollipop Chainsaw on release day, and before I go any further I must say that I LOVE this game. The action is fun and varied enough to keep it from feeling tedious, the humor is spot on, and the game exudes such charm. It also caters to both casual and hardcore players with the varying difficulty levels, ranking modes, and plethora of unlocks... Grasshopper Manufacture and SUDA 51 truly understand how to make a game that people will want to replay over and over.

That being said, Lollipop Chainsaw certainly has it's flaws; I started out somewhat frustrated and dissapointed. When you first begin the game, controls are not listed ANYWHERE- no manual, not in the main menu, and at first unlisted in the pause menu. they introduce the controls/combos very slowly throughout the first level... fairly terrible when your first playthrough is on hard. By the time they told me about most controls I had figured them out via trial and error. Also, combos at the start of the game are fairly limited, but that is common and allows a good sense of growth in power as you play.
The game has a few camera issues in corners and controls are not quite as fluid and precise as they could be (although that improves as you buy combos and increase stats).

Despite the issues, like I said, I love this game. Once you get past the start and get yourself accustomed to the nuances of combat you'll be gleefully making sparkles, cartoon hearts, and rainbows appear from felled zombies at a pace that does not dissapoint.

When I first sad an add for the game I wasn't even sure what I was looking at. I don't know anyone that has any interest in the game so thanks for mini reviewing it. Would you recommend the game?

As long as you're an adult that can "get" an out-there somewhat cheesy sense of humor and you like games that are rewarding for replay value rather than a longer single campaign run (something I think would fit most behemoth fans would appreciate), then absolutely yes I recommend this game. Words honestly fail me in describing some aspects of the experience.

One other minor flaw at least on the ps3 version which for some reason does not let you install, is that lollipop has more loading than should be expected from a fairly linear game this late in the current gen of consoles. I know I mentioned several little issues with this game, but despite all that it enthralls me. Overall, the problems are outweighed by the unique mechanics and presentation, as well as good attention to some smaller details.

A few examples: In most hack and slash action games, you simply try to kill enemies quickly or keep an absurdly long combo going. In lollipop chainsaw, sure you can still just go straight for kills, but to get a good score (and thusly more in-game money and unlocks) you instead weaken enemies to make them groggy/stunned, group them together, and kill 3 or more in one chainsaw slash to get "sparkle hunting" rewards... which yes, looks as flashily ridiculous as it sounds.
Also, there are DOZENS of unlockable costumes in the game, and in cutscenes, whatever costume you are wearing is what you see every time other than a few hand drawn bits. That truly is rare in a game.

Objectively I give this game an 8 out of 10, but personally it is closer to a 9.

I put a good nine hours into Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. over the past couple of days.
This was the first time I played a game for over two hours in a single day in a long time.

Last year, I believe, I went back to my old N64, and beat the first Paper Mario. Then I went and beat Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. After that, I went to try and beat Super Paper Mario, but I think I bought a new game before I could fully beat that. Still haven't beaten it to this day.

Have you gone down the Pit of 100 Trials yet?

I've done it about 7 times now... :-| (The first time is the hardest because you have to fight Bonetail in the end.)

Just got done with DMC3, which was actually pretty difficult at some parts, and that's just on normal mode. Started DMC4 and was very sad when I realized it has no trophies.

Gah, don't rub it in, I've been waiting for a return of the RPG element of Paper Mario for years now! I really want this game, it'll give me a reason to use my 3DS as more than just a regular DS.

Those are REALLY important! To unlock super hard mode, you need all 120 emblems and an A rank in all main levels and extra missions (120). I feel proud of myself right now.

Halo 4 is literally my favorite modern-day console-based-game right now. No hate here :grin:

Halo 4's not my favorite game though. That's probably Starfox 64 or Paper Mario; TTYD.
