If you’ve been following NSFW Gamer for the past few months you know that most of us that work on the site were eagerly waiting for Lollipop Chainsaw to come out today.
After picking the game up at Best Buy this morning and playing through the first couple stages I can say this: So far it’s a blast!
You can read my first impressions of Lollipop Chainsaw after the jump.
After playing through the first two stages and one boss fight, my initial thought when I put down the control to write this quick article was “Lollipop Chainsaw is fucking fun”. That sounds a bit simple, but I can’t think of a better compliment to give a video game.
The action is fast, the controls are responsive, and the story is outrageous. I love Juliet and her headless boyfriend Nick’s banter, and most of the jokes are genuinely funny. The voice acting is handled well and Little Jimmy Urine is perfect as the zombie punk rocker, Zed.
You earn money for killing zombies and rescuing classmates that can be used to purchase new combos, power-ups, costumes, etc. I’ve unlocked a few new combos for Juliet and even though they are a bit simple they are still cool when you pull them off correctly.
I’ll have the full review up by the end of the week, but if you’re on the fence about picking up Lollipop Chainsaw today my gut says you should go for it.
