    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.

    The potty mouth 4th graders, Cartman, Kyle, Stan & Kenny are back. Matt Stone and Trey Parker bring us another adventure in the video gameThe potty mouth 4th graders, Cartman, Kyle, Stan & Kenny are back. Matt Stone and Trey Parker bring us another adventure in the video game world rather than on the small screen. Does the new installment in this franchise hold up as well of the first one? Let us find out.

    South Park the fracture but whole picks up right where the first one left off. You are still playing the middle age’s game for about five minutes, during this time it will give you a quick over view of the new combat system. At the end of those five minutes, you run in to Cartman, who has switched games to superheroes. Once the game switches over, you start at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to your popularity. You will then have the story of the game explained to you; you are looking for missing cats in
    South Park in order for a reward so you can fund your super hero franchise. There is two sides of the super heroes, the coon and friends & the freedom pals who are in a civil war. In the story line, they are making fun of the marvel cinematic universe. As you progress through the story you find out there is more to it than just finding the cats for a reward there is a darker side to it than just what meets the eye.

    The Game Play in South Park is just about the same as the first installment but a little bit more in depth, especially when it comes to the combat. This time you move along a certain amount of spaces along a grid to reach your target. Each move you do has a different range of attack, which adds a nice variety to the combat. Don’t worry about going in alone it never happens. On your side you can have up to three different sidekicks like The Coon, Captain Diabetes, The Human Kite, Mosquito and much more. Each of them offering their unique abilities to help you on your journey throughout South Park. A few of the new additions to the game play is crafting, you can build costumes, consumables and more. Throughout your adventure, you will pick up artifacts, which gives you more strength for your attacks it is highly recommended especially towards the end of the game when you need a might of 500 for some missions otherwise you will have a difficult time completing these missions. South Park is a mix of open world; turn base combat, RPG game. When you are travelling through the world you will run in to characters who will assign side missions to you this will help you get new artifacts and level up.

    South Park the Fractured But whole is a proper and wonderful sequel, keeping the humor of the show, adding more to the combat and exploration. I loved by 18 hours of game play I completed the story was able to complete all the side missions except for two of them and get all the collectibles & I hope a third one comes out this is one title you don’t want to miss this year.

    Score: 9/10

    Mechanically this is an excellent game and a vast improvement on stick of truth, the world feels better, it's easier, quicker and more fun to navigate with a lot less loading times and a smoother movement across the landscape for your character even if the same negatives from the first game about the repetitive environment with small daily changes and locked off sections of the town still exist.

    The combat is a vast improvement over SOT, much more enjoyable than the absolute tedious qte crap that was the first game. I actually tried to go back and play the first one again after this and couldn't stomach it which is a real shame because it was an enjoyable story and theme, which arguably worked better than the superhero theme in the current one although that is fun offering good powers and fun characters and interactions in south park.

    It has some good RPG mechanics although it is a bit thin, the lack of weapons or armour and no ability to upgrade you companions abilities or load-outs is a bit of a drawback for me but they are obviously trying to keep the game-play appeal wide and simple given that a lot of people will buy it because they are south park fans not RPG fans.

    If you are a fan of South Park you will enjoy this game purely for the humour and aesthetic of it, but the game is fun even if it is a bit repetitive, particularly the combat and enemies. RPG fans will enjoy this as well as it is a fun game to play with an interesting (if stupid) story.

    Despite the negatives I have still given this game an 8 as I did really enjoy playing it and it's more a case of picking up on failings on reflection.

    In the third game I would like to see them go totally off planet, maybe using the town as a hub with your travelling to lots of other environments and getting rid of the repetition issue, I would like much deeper RPG mechanics and a focus on a larger and grander story and game while doing away with some of the gimmicky stuff like taking a **** The tactical turn based combat served the game well but more enemy and move variety combined with making it a bit more challenging could result in a top notch game.

    Its super fun. I just see some areas that can be improve to make it as a masterpiece. The story is fairly average.

    Everything that was presented in South Park seems to have been recycled in this game. Like a few others have said, many of the jokes haveEverything that was presented in South Park seems to have been recycled in this game. Like a few others have said, many of the jokes have been done. It seems as though over all of the material they've had for well over twenty years, they'd through more substance into it. Don't get me wrong, there are some pretty funny moments; then there are many parts where it's really just boring.

    I didn't like the move to a tactical rpg and less focus on stats and equipment. Instead, its just some artifacts that really "set it and forget it" feel to upping your stats. Which really seems like a lazy system, as is the crafting. (Then again, maybe that is a joke in itself)

    Sidequests are mostly boring but add some funny moments, with a few memorable ones. The main story is decent and really just makes up for a long South Park episode. It seems as though they wanted to do more gags on the comics but never really went through with it, probably because of licensing or something. There is a mountain of material to go on...which seemed like a missed opportunity on their part.

    I didn't enjoy this as much as the previous South Park game, but the main quest was still good enough to keep me entertained.
