    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.

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

    Приколы в игре.Пару раз,когда были разветвления в диалогах , но меня в любом случае посылали по одному варианту,какой выбор не сделаешь.Там вначале типа "заплатить $2 и узнать о тайнах" или "купить оружие" Выбрал узнать о тайнах в ответ "не полагайся на тайны,это всё хрень" и пришлось мне покупать оружие. Теперь опасаюсь кликать на разветвления диалогов)

If you aren't familiar with the show, maybe an 8. All my favorite characters were here. Tons of references and also new jokes that range from clever to quite shocking. Don't play this game with kids in the room. It's like playing a really long episode of the tv show.

    There is exploration, character customization (though you can't actually play a girl, you can cross dress...uh, if you're into that sort of thing...), there is no actual dialog as you play a mute - and the game takes ever opportunity to make fun of that. Not a lot of real choices and consequences or super deep gameplay. The combat is turn based, but with timed attacks/blocks and Quick Time Events for some special moves.

    I will say that if you hate South Park humor, you will hate this game. Violence, nudity, sacrilege, potty humor, anal torture, abortions, a full on (somewhat censored) sex scene - this game goes quite a bit further even than the show, but I found myself laughing the whole time.

    On the whole, I'd recommend it to anyone who loves South Park style humor. Really refreshing to see that the developers put so much effort into the game, rather than make a shameless cash grab like so many would have.

    This game is made for fans of South Park. Event screen and every line is chock full of references from seasons as far back as 1997. The gameThis game is made for fans of South Park. Event screen and every line is chock full of references from seasons as far back as 1997. The game plays out exactly like an episode, with crisp beautiful (South Park beautiful, but still) graphics and smooth animations. The voice acting is on par with the show, and all characters are voiced by their onscreen counterparts. The game play is what you would expect from a South Park RPG, turn based, and comical. The fights seem balanced, and the encounters are well spaced out.
    The only down side to game is the fact it leaves fans begging for more. With a triple A price tag of 60 dollars, one would expect a bit more meat on the bones of this title. There is also the fact that the DLC that is promised is an Xbox exclusive leaves a bad taste in the mouth of PC fans. I guess if the big complaint is they leave you wanting more, it says that they did something right though.

    That being said, the side quests and collectables do give it a replay value. I for one will be playing again, this time as the arch-type of ":Jew: instead of the standard mage, this time playing with more of a completest attitude.

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
