I own and love almost all of Suda 51's american releases and can usually see his charm in all the titles. I have been casually playing "Lollipop Chainsaw" since picking it up release day. To be honest, I am not having as much fun with it as I did "Shadows of the Damned" and although it was directed by Massimo Guarini, I still felt a lot of Suda51's pacing and overall concept were intact. I know he hasn't solely directed a game since "No more Heroes" on the Wii, I still felt his presence lingering in later Grasshopper Manufacture games, even after they kept putting his name on the cover.
It is a good game but I just don't feel like it was a whole concept created and designed by Suda51, just like something he spit balled and than green lighted with another director to expand on. Either way, at least he is coming back in "Killer is dead", possibly. Is anyone else feeling the same about this?
