    We've never had so much fun with a video game before. If you like RPGs and/or the TV show –especially the latter– this is a game you cannot miss. This is just the best adaptation from a TV series to a video game ever made.

    Basically, it’s the second full-length movie based on South Park, now fully interactive. Even bigger, longer and uncut.

    More than just a faithful adaptation of a cult TV series. It's a benchmark for translating a favourite property into a video game format, something that other licensed properties could learn from. And it's also the funniest game on the market.

    It's in bad taste, disgusting, difficult to digest - so it's a true and worthy South Park game. It's captures the humour and has lots of great ideas. Still, it's no RPG, it's all about the fun we all know from the TV series.

    Obsidian Entertainment managed to create a South Park game that is completely indistinguishable from the TV series. The witty and vulgar humor, the cutout aesthetic, and the hilarious voice talents of Matt Stone and Troy Parker are all present. Fans of the series shouldn’t miss it.

    The length is less to blame than the overall design as an RPG, where players will notice things such as a striking contrast between pacing when considering how strong the story is. Stick of Truth’s main concern ultimately lies in its ability to match a good game to a really entertaining premise, which is a far more alienating factor than whether people like your show.

My first thought was, What?! $60 for a game about poop jokes? But No, I haven't had this much fun in an RPG since the Original Pokemon, and that's what this game keeps reminding me of, with the added fun of the ENTIRE South Park universe. EVERYTHING IS HERE, everything from Tom's Rhinoplasty, to Al Gore hiding in the Bushes. Every line of Dialogue brings a chuckle after another, and It's all done right.

    The Combat is turn based, and s executed in a fun and engaging way, there is no waiting for the enemy to take their turn, you're constantly engaged with attempting to block enemy attacks and countering.

    For the first hour I just looked through Cartmans house, Played the "taking a **** minigame, then playing with his moms ****

    Literally Skyrim+Pokemon= This game

It's set up to look just like the show, so much so that sometimes you'll forget it's a game and not a long episode. The gameplay is surprisingly addictive, and deeper than you would expect. You'll likely spend a lot of time finishing side quests just to make sure you get all the little references and jokes. Expand

    South Park is one of the funniest RPG games I have played recently. For I can tell It is worth for it's price. The charachters are memorableSouth Park is one of the funniest RPG games I have played recently. For I can tell It is worth for it's price. The charachters are memorable and funny. Presentsion is awesome and It's true to the show. South Park is a semi-open world game althougt It's not that big nor smal but It has so many easter eggs and secret around every corner. The battle system is bit similliar to Paper Mario for concepts like button presses at presice moment to deal extra damage or block to minimize the damage you recive. Game also got inspiration from series Earthbound (Mother) like shop,items,charachters etc... You play as your own South Park charachter which you can create how ever you want. There are tons and tons of custom clothes, dyes , accesories, hairstyles to choose from. Your companions are funny and really helpfull with their attacks. Story is awesome, full of twist and turns and engaging. But there are some tiny things that bother me. After you completed 100% there isn't anyone to fight (except for pirates and animals in Canada). And there are some places missing like Raisins and Ike's room and I wish there were more classes. But at the end of the day It's game that doesn't fail to impress me and It's a must own title for South Park fans and all gamers Expand

Obsidian is notorious for releasing their games 6 months before up to snuff, and this game is no different (remember new vegas on release date? give me a break). The gameplay is boring, the combat is basically final fantasy 1 with quick time events, and for a 2d game, the performance is a joke. Even as a huge south park fan, I had a hard time enjoying this poor excuse of a game. Go back and play the ps1 south park games if you need a fix, not this piece of crap. Expand
