    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.

    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.

    Я очень ждал эту игру, так как первая заставила меня смеяться до слёз, но меня ждало небольшое разочарование. Если говорить в целом, то втораяЯ очень ждал эту игру, так как первая заставила меня смеяться до слёз, но меня ждало небольшое разочарование. Если говорить в целом, то вторая часть хуже первой с точки зрения юмора и сюжета. В сиквеле нет той безбашенности, что была во второй части, смешных моментов куда меньше. Что в игре стало реально лучше, то только боевая система. SOUTH PARK: THE FRACTURED BUT WHOLE это ещё очень смешная, смелая и безбашенная игра, только по сравнению с первой частью, сиквел менее смешной, менее смелый и менее безбашенный. Expand
