    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

Bigotry and minority jokes are hilarious of course! Good job plaguing society Matt and Trey, this "game" if you can even call it that doesn't even have good gameplay.
    You're betting off spending your $60 on 60 fancy items at a dollar store.
    10/10.

Amusing game would be a very big understatement. This game knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything else. Loved the overly ridiculous story-line and all the references to other popular games and TV shows like Skyrim and Game of Thrones. The combat was much better than expected though it did get a little stale but was still entertaining enough. The character creation was also pretty impressive. I cant believe I am saying this, but this game is one of the better RPGs out there. I felt like I was watching a very long and funny episode of South Park with my character in it! Expand

    Igra je meni bila baš odlična i pravo smiješna. Za velike fanove South Park serijala ovo je "must buy" opcija.

    Igra je meni bila baš odlična i pravo smiješna. Za velike fanove South Park serijala ovo je "must buy" opcija.
    Prednosti:svijet south parka je odlično i detaljno napravljen, grafika je čista desetka i imaš osjećaj kao da si u crtanoj seriji, muzika je odlična i epska, questovi(glavni i sporedni) su jako dobro osmišnjeni i svi su moćni i interesantni,reference i easter eggovi na starije epizode su odlično osmišljeni,level dizajn je jedan od najoriginalnijih koji sam ikada vidio u jednoj igri
    Mane: igra je za RPG baš kratka(trebalo mi samo 17h da pređem sve questove) i mogli su ubaciti još tonu stvari u igri jer je serijal pun mogućnosti.
    Nadam se da će u skorijoj budućnosti izaći kakav DLC ili možda i nastavak igre.

    South Park The Stick of Truth
    A Refreshing RPG
    In stick of Truth you play as the new kid,
    You get to customize this new kid in the beginning, and you’re tasked by your parents to go out and make new friends…
    You keep track of your new friends via Facebook…
    When you meet up with the neighborhood kids you find they’re in the middle of an elf vs human war, you start out on the human side and get to choose 1 of the varying classes, its then up to you to sabotage the elves and recruit new members for the kingdom
    Stick of Truth was a relaxing time but the gameplay for me was just a bit too repetitive..
    It didn’t take long for me to get bored with the combat...
    This is a turn based rpg where you take turns attacking enemies with potential elemental damage, and effects like bleeding, or gross out…
    with a bag on consumables for healing
    Nothing special…
    You have mana which is used for fart magic you unlock as your progress through the game, and power points for special moves…
    You also have 1 buddy with you when you battle…
    Buddies are unlocked with story progression and can be swapped in and out like Pokémon at any time...
    There’s a buddy for every ones playstyle or to balance your class out…
    So a lot of thought definitely went into balancing this game…
    You can also collect new weapons and armor in backpacks, or buy them at shops…
    This game pokes fun at the rpg genre throughout, which is the only thing I really found charming here…
    I personally found no humor during the combat nor really in the game even though they clearly tried really hard…
    Humor is subjective.. I find games like fat princess adventures to be hilarious while others may look at me strange for saying this… but bathroom humor just doesn’t quite tickle my funny bone, though the game did manage to get few laughs out of me... but not necisarily with the ridiculous things going on like giving an abortion to stans dad, or farting all over the place to progress through the levels.. But when the game would sarcastically make fun of itself... these were the best moments for me as someone not really a fan of the TV show…
    I feel like you need to be a fan to truly enjoy this and get the belly laughs I’ve heard so much about before playing...
    There’s so much fan service here…
    The entire town is mapped out and can be freely explored with tons of collectibles…
    You can do side quests... search the characters drawers for junk, to sell for some pocket change, collect frustratingly missable collectibles like chimpokomon
    It will keep fans of the show entertained for hours…
    The biggest mistake I feel this game makes though is the whole having to fart or use these different abilities to progress…
    It feels a little awkward switching through fart types, or shooting an object then switching to give commands…
    I could’ve done without this needless slowdown…
    Shooting arrows is fine for the collectible aspect or knocking things down in the environment, setting up traps to kill enemies before you get into a battle with them… but I feel like the shrinking, the anal probe thing, and buddy commands got in the way.
    While I didn’t get the laughs I expected, I can still appreciate this game for what it is though as a whole…
    A well balanced, but repetitive, rpg with a decent story to keep you moving forward..
    I give Southpark The Stick of Truth
    an 8/10

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
