    Well worth the wait. Building off of the massive success of The Stick of Truth, Fractured But Whole has an incredibly satisfying combat system that leaves you constantly eager for the next fight, exemplary and natural dialogue from everyone in town, and a truly epic soundtrack.

    A sequel that every true South Park fan should play.

    South Park returns to our consoles, not as a whole different game from The Stick of Truth, but rather as a new season within its gaming universe, with the style and satire of the best South Park seasons, and plenty of jokes to accompany you through the adventure.

    South Park: The Fractured but Whole is a nice sequel, with so much fun and irreverence, but, at the same time, it's repetitive.

    This game is filled with fan-service, though the game does not offer the exact same depth we know from the series. Thankfully the videogame itself is a lot of fun and will keep you laughing for many hours.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole is an easily accessible but moderately deep light RPG in which fun battles, nice collectables and a lot of crude humour will entertain you for almost 30 hours. But comparing it with its forebear, The Stick of Truth, is unavoidable, and in this it kind of disappoints, feeling a little too similar and not as funny or surprising.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole isn’t an even experience. Some moments are fun and pretty funny, but others feel pretty uninspired. Exploring the town of South Park isn’t as novel this time out, and it largely isn’t as funny. RPG systems like combat, looting and crafting are just involved enough to make them interesting, but the firm emphasis is on the story and humor of the show. With the plot taking a while to develop and with so many jokes just feeling played out, loose on their landings or easy and obvious, it’s tough to really get excited to head back down to South Park.

    I am unashamedly a fan of South Park, and after a hugely enjoyable 35hrs, have platinumed the game.
    At first I was slightly bothered by the fact that the town and houses were the same layout as that in Stick of Truth. Then I thought about it, and realised of course it will be. It's South Park Colorado! The game starts after a brilliant character set up, straight off where Stick of Truth finishes. A few early battles let's you learn the new mechanics, the characters feel more like a "darkest Dungeon" strategy, and throughout the game this new mechanic made using new characters worthwhile. Often on losing a fight I would change up my squad and find others skills would hugely benefit the battle at hand.
    There are 10 playable companions, each with 3 moves and a special. For fans, the specials will often have you in tears at first, and never grow dull. For non fans, we'll I'm not sure why you'd buy a South Park game anyhow.
    The story is as offensive and wacky as the first. Additional characters in later series like PC Principle, bring a lot to the table, whilst the charm is still with the boys world being half real and half make believe. Some bookers you meet are hugely offensive and anti PC, but the ongoing back story of the protagonist, told by Cartman was the best running joke. I won't spoil it, but it's ridiculous.
    I used a guide to find the last 3 Yaoi pictures, other than that, I earnt a platinum all whilst playing. And it felt worth my time doing side quests to earn both. I admit in the Stick of Truth, I would avoid fighting the same battles, because I enjoyed the new mechanic so much, I actually fought every battle I could. The voice acting and script alone is a payoff always.
    Any south park fan will love this game as I have. I wish it lasted longer, I wish it had an online pvp mode, but as it stands, it's a hilarious fun RPG that'll have you LOL a lot

    Really not sure where the super high scores are coming from. Maybe from people who haven't played Stick.
    I am 2hrs into it and its just a bit dull.
    I am going to keep playing as it must get funny at some point.
    By this time in the last game I was crying with laughter at almost ever turn.
    The combat is about the same but somehow slightly less fun.
    Dunno, its ok.. Its just not great compared to the first one, of which i was a huge fan and played it through a few times with different classes.
