    The South Park game we have been waiting for is at last here.

    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.

    This game is Oustanding. 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 theThis game is Oustanding. 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

    The overall game is good. Its similar to a 1990's Japanese RPG for combat. The story line is funny. The first time I used Cartman's specialThe overall game is good. Its similar to a 1990's Japanese RPG for combat. The story line is funny. The first time I used Cartman's special flame attack, I had a hard time mashing the W button to fire it off because I was laughing so hard. If you buy the game you will definitely like it.

    One thing of note, the mini-games are required to advance in the game and they are not easy. I had to go to the web to get instructions on how to finish out the poorly worded instructions in game to complete them. The inventory system is abysmal,especially the selling part. If Obsidian had fixed these 2 glaring issues, they'd have gotten a 10 from me.

    The game is great from what I was able to play (for hardcore Southpartk fans only mind you) but unfortunately I got stuck at the anal probeThe game is great from what I was able to play (for hardcore Southpartk fans only mind you) but unfortunately I got stuck at the anal probe part of the game because of the stupid qte's where I almost broke my fingers pressing buttons and it doesn't work and completely broke my mood and game since you can't change freely from gamepad to keyboard since there is no option for it in the game (in the year 2014 unbelievable) and I'm not going to unplug my gamepad just for this part. If you are going to make a game for the pc than make it with pc options in mind ******. Expand
