    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.

    Disclaimer: Review is from an extreme South Park fan.
    If you love South Park, you will love this game, simple. Much like The Stick of Truth this is all any fan could ever ask for from a South Park game. All the humour is there, all the references, its just exactly what you'd expect from South Park, it's absolutely awesome. Gameplay wise it's great fun, regardless of being South Park I loved the combat, I played on the highest difficulty and found it both challenging and satisfying to win. I would of given this game a 10 if it wasn't for quite a few bugs that I ran into.

    An incredibly enjoyable game (especially if you are a frequent watcher of the TV series). The snide jokes, obscene behavior, and just comicalAn incredibly enjoyable game (especially if you are a frequent watcher of the TV series). The snide jokes, obscene behavior, and just comical gameplay and inserts are enjoyable enough to just watch. I spent about 35 hours in my first playthrough and just could not stop laughing at the humor this game releases. The combat revamped is refreshing, strategic, and fun. This game looks and sounds exactly how an original South Park season would look and sound and that is what makes this game even more enjoyable. The characters are great, costumes are great, the cool Artifact system and item crafting is great - just an overall solid and enjoyable game. Got it for $12.00 at GameStop! Expand

    This game is one of the better games I've played this year, however I believe this game could have been better. When I saw the trailer duringThis game is one of the better games I've played this year, however I believe this game could have been better. When I saw the trailer during E3 like all stick of truth fans I was foaming at the mouth; i was so excited about how we would get a more strategic combat system and just the idea of playing as a super hero was amazing enough. The game developers promised so much and they delivered on all accounts. While this game was entertaining I did not feel as engaged as much as i did in the first game.

    The game has many strengths such as the combat. The number one thing I believe the developers focused on was the combat system. Fighting through waves of enemy's felt great and rewarding as you gained experience. In the beginning of my first play through I would find myself screwing myself over due to my poor choices in character placement; but as you progress through the game you learn through punishment which can demolish your team if act naive.

    The main issue I had with this game was that the game itself was too short. I felt as if there was a huge opportunity missed as i watched the end credits go by. The game was enjoyable and witty but being fun and amusing isn't all i was expecting from this game.

    In short, this was worth full price and i would recommend it to a friend.

    For South Park Fans, this is a must buy. Many great story lines in this sequel.

    If you are looking for a robust, hard, and depth RPG, look else where.

    This game is more of a rental, as you can grind out the game within a weekend.

    7/10 from a South Park fan.

    Utter crap. Counterintuitive interface, unclear mission objectives, no hints that are any use whatsoever, repetitive missions, and nearlyUtter crap. Counterintuitive interface, unclear mission objectives, no hints that are any use whatsoever, repetitive missions, and nearly impossible combat. Bought this game on clearance and it's STILL a rip-off. Will be sold ASAP to the nearest resale store. Do NOT assume if you liked SoT that this game won't suck. Expand
