It’s rock and roll versus pop! Glitzy versus grungy! Bubblegum versus Gobstoppers! SUDA51, the mastermind behind No More Heroes and Killer 7, is bringing this age-old culture war back to life as the sweet and innocent chainsaw-wielding Juliet faces a heavy metal-influenced zombie apocalypse!

It’s Lollipop Chainsaw, and it’s a game that has SUDA51’s creative stamp all over it. Dark and dingy school corridors get redecorated with gallons of blood and dismembered body parts, with the comic book presentation and rocking soundtrack bringing a real grindhouse movie feel to the proceedings.

Juliet has basic melee attacks which are executed in true cheerleader fashion, with combos involving kick flicks and pom-pom pushes, but if you mash the heavy attack button she cracks out the chainsaw and starts to really bring the thunder. Individual limbs and body parts can be sawn off, with enemies limping and crawling on the floor to reach you if their legs happen to be disposed of.

The action is peppered with some strange dialogue provided by Juliet’s boyfriend - who just so happens to be a disembodied head swinging on a chain by her hips. As you do. There’s some famous talent here in the voicework, so be prepared for some big names to be present in the credits list.

Lollipop Chainsaw is incredibly quirky and commands your interest with the refined combat and frankly absurd set pieces that you’re asked to get involved in.
