South Park: The Stick of Truth - Destiny Trailer
Mar 4, 2014Obsidian 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.
Mar 4, 2014The 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 ****

Mar 9, 2014I love South Park, so this review *might* be biased, but I'll try and play Devil's Advocate wherever possible. It'll also be a short,I love South Park, so this review *might* be biased, but I'll try and play Devil's Advocate wherever possible. It'll also be a short, spoiler-free review, for the PC VERSION.
So, £40/$60? If you're a PC guy, then you know that blockbusters like Hitman or Tomb Raider were only £25, so why is this £40? Because Ubisoft. And this game doesn't have reliability, being a TV to Game, so logically, it seems like a cash-in by Matt and Trey.
If you think this, boy you'll be wrong like I was.
Not much can be said about this game in a spoiler-free fashion, but if you're like me who's seen every South Park episode over and over, you'll love every bit of reference this game makes.
There are only two issues I can see:
1) Some achievements are impossible if you missed something during a story sequence, prompting multiple (4+) playthroughs to achieve certain ones. Some people, like me, would embrace the opportunity to replay the game, but some people don't like this, so if you're an achievement hunter, bare that in mind.
2) THIS GAME IS FAR TOO EASY. I started playing on Normal difficulty, found it too easy, so I upped it to Hardcore halfway through, and I still only died outside of combat from things like mouse traps or fire. So a patch or a mod that makes the game harder is in order. I got the Hoarder achievement on my first playthrough because I never needed to sell anything!
Conclusion: £40/$60 is steep for PC, so wait for Lord Gaben to bestow offers upon us, but if you're a console guy (*cough* peasants *cough*) I highly recommend this game.… Expand

Mar 11, 2014South Park: The Stick of Truth is to video games what the cartoon is to television. That sentence is really all you need as far as aSouth Park: The Stick of Truth is to video games what the cartoon is to television. That sentence is really all you need as far as a recommendation (assuming you enjoy the show). The presentation is uncannily accurate to the show with visuals suitably flat and "crappy" and the best voice work I have heard in a long time.
What stands this game apart from most other licensed games (Arkham games included) is the writing. Every line of dialogue every plot device feels like something that would happen in the show; not some contrivance to artificially expand the games length.
There are negatives; the combat is a bit shallow, the classes don't feel different enough and the loot is repetitive; but these seem minor when balanced against the positives.
When it comes to licensed products in any medium I always look for something that recreates the "feel" of the original; in The Stick of Truth I see the best example of this that I can remember and if it had a more robust combat system it would have been perfect. As it is, it's still the most enjoyable game I have played in the last three years.… Expand
May 8, 2017It is South Park - and that should be enough for any fan.

However, if you are not a fan - i think you will still enjoy the game. As an RPG - it is not. It is rather a highly thematic (South Park) interactive adventure, although the basic elements of an RPG are satirized with good skill, which provides for a fun game.
Story is linear, unlike in a self-respecting RPG, and the replayability is pointless.
But i enjoyed South Park the Stick of Truth immensely, and give it my recommendations - fan or not.… 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
