  1. Realistically, you'd need to be a fan of either South Park or tower defense to get the most out of this game. If you've got an interest in either subject--or, ideally, both--there are much worse ways to spend 800 points on Xbox Live Arcade.
  2. There's a huge difference playing this game alone or with friends. Its single player experience is not the best option in the Xbox 360 Arcade Marketplace, but this changes 180 degrees if you want it for multiplayer purposes.
  3. The multiplayer arcade action really South Park a blast to play.
  4. To say this is the best South Park game is an understatement, it’s the only good one. For those who were worried this would be just another rushed licensed game should be relieved; there is a lot of fantastic content for fans of the series and the Tower Defense aspect of the game is done really well.
  5. The actual game behind South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play! is actually good, and that’s not something you’ve probably ever been able to say about a South Park game before.
  6. A great sense of humor and challenging gameplay make Let's Go Tower Defense Play! easily the best South Park game to date.
  7. A classic Tower Defence with a tweak of action. Full of references to the cartoon series.

    It fails to offer any real fun as a single player game and only really works as a nostalgic look at some of the funnier bits in the world of South Park. Anybody in the market for a middle of the road tower defense game with some cursing and jokes you've heard before has found their match.

    Maybe for South Park fans this is an interesting title. But be smart to start immediately with the multiplayer mode. Because if you choose to play on your own, the game will soon be pretty boring. For those people who are not South Park fans and are seeking for a Tower Defense game; look on the web, there are free and better versions available.
  10. Let's Go Tower Defense Play! will offer some good times for a group of tower defense fanatics, but anyone thinking about going solo should save his money, as managing the other characters in the single-player mode feels like trying to herd dead cats.
  11. Ultimately, South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play! is a disappointment. It's not exactly a bad game -- the Tower Defense gameplay is competent enough -- but it fails to do anything that makes it worth being considered anything more than simply "alright." There are ultimately far more charming and addictive Tower Defense games out there for your money, ones that are guaranteed to entertain more than this one does.
  12. If you like South Park a lot, and also this kind of games, it is a good option, even for discovering this genre, but there are plenty of better ones.

    From the custom voice work done by show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, to original artwork for the over-the-top-but-barely-there story, there's a treasure trove of unlockable artwork and hilarious video clips of the show.
  14. I was a little concerned at first that this was going to be another shovelware title but I was quickly assuaged. Blowing up hippies (and zombies and old people) with a few friends and the South Park children is a great time; which is why I highly recommend this title.

    et’s Go Tower Defense Play! is a big upgrade from previous South Park titles. Fans of the show will certainly get a kick out of it, as there is plenty to see for longtime viewers. Eventually however, the game’s flaws come to the forefront, causing the fun to end way too soon.
  16. Impossible to play without laughing. [Christmas 2009, p.105]
  17. The wall that Tower Defense Play! hits is the fact that there are better tower defense games available. Its badly executed and the jokes have all been heard before. The only thing that makes this game worth a chance is the co-op mode, so you can try and enjoy it with three friends.
  18. It's easy to put down the wrong tower as you hurriedly try to set up your defenses, but otherwise, the controls are solid. [Holiday 2009, p.75]
  19. As a piece of South Park merchandise, this is absolutely perfect at what it does. [Issue#53, p.105]
  20. South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play is a pretty good tower defense game that has some flaws that keep it from being a great game, but anybody that has friends to play with should definitely check this out.
  21. The best advice anyone can be given is to pick up South Park: Let’s Go Tower Defense Play! for the Xbox Live Arcade if they are either a fan of the genre or a huge South Park fan by default.
  22. Quite a few levels to play through. Online play and challenge levels are nice, though the overall experience is rather short.
  23. 70
    Let's Go Tower Defence Play! is the best South Park game out there, not that there was a lot of competition. Fans of the show will get the most out of it.
  24. 70
    A competent game, but more of an entertaining distraction than something you will invest much time into.
  25. South Park Lets Go Tower Defence seems like a game that only fans of the cartoon will fully appreciate and to narrow that down further only those who have played similar games will enjoy this as the action aspect of the game cant hold up by itself.
  26. There are better TD games on XBLA (think Defense Grid), but for those people that get on with the non-PC nature of the show, and who have a fondness for tower defense games, there’s plenty of enjoyment to be garnered from South Park Let’s Go Player Tower Defense. I’m super serial.
  27. The charisma of the actors makes a nice product but very simplistic game.

    This game is pretty good for arcade game because every character has their own special moves. Bosses in this game aren't that hard but its a tower defense game so I can accept it. This is that kind of game you shouldn't play it alone its most fun whit friend(s). Full Review »

    Clearly a lot of effort went in to this game to make it feel authentic, you can't fault it for that. But, I think a lot more effort should of gone in to make it actually feel fun. It's unoriginal and repetitive to the point of nauseam! Lame! Full Review »

    The graphics are typical South Park with a convenient scrap book to keep track of all the game's elements. Several voices from the TV series are present along with clips from various SP episodes to give some background to the enemies. The sound effects, music and cut scenes are good. This game was really built for playing with friends, the reason becomes clear on the very first level when playing solo there's no AI. You eventually get up three other computer player companions but they do absolutely nothing unless an enemy comes within range at which point they will only lob low damage snowballs at a very minimal rate which is futile assistance. The computer players don't collect coins unless they happen to land exactly where you left them, nor will they move to engage enemies. This becomes increasingly difficult constantly bouncing between characters for the support required to succeed against a system that doesn't seem to make any distinctions between highly capable human companions and useless computer companions. The enemies are scripted which is common for TD games, however, there is clearly even a lack of effort in this key part of the game. Full Review »
