    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

I don't know yet, if it's worth 60usd, since i've not played it through yet, but i've had a tremendous amount of fun so far. The quips, the jokes, the atmosphere, i mean my god...I never thought that it would be this good. As of now, i haven't had any problems with bugs, except for one time when an npc became invisible from the legs up for a few moments. It's very fun and accessible to new players. The battle system is simple and boiks down to timing and basic tactics. What i did take issue with was the small scale of the battles. At this moment i have 2 buddies and can only use 1 in battle, which is kind of limiting. It may be so because they wanted to focus the story on the player character as he interacts with the universe, i don't know, i just found it limiting. Everything else is pure South Park gold. You simply owe it to yourself to play this. 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
