I didn't expect anything from this South Park RPG, but The Stick of Truth is one of the best license games ever made. It's as obnoxious as the TV series, as it should be. The script is made with love and the RPG elements fit in to the franchise like a glove. [March 2014]
South Park: The Stick of Truth is everything I would have ever wanted in a South Park game. It’s ridiculous, it’s crude, and I love it in spite of anything it might be missing. It feels almost exactly like playing through an interactive episode of the show and I could ask for absolutely nothing less.
If it were just five or more hours longer in content, South Park: The Stick of Truth would have struck the perfect balance between writing, gameplay, humor, and length. Not since Earthbound and Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars has there been a turn-based RPG with such a distinct style and with so many memorable moments.
More than just a faithful adaptation of a cult TV series. It's a benchmark for translating a favourite property into a video game format, something that other licensed properties could learn from. And it's also the funniest game on the market.
The Stick of Truth is a great game, no doubt. Sadly, the adventure is brief one that leaves you craving more. This is a testimony to the sublime quality that's on offer here, but doesn't change the fact that you're a bit unsatisfied when you're done with it. Still, if you like the series at all, you should absolutely play this.
The 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.
In about 5 first hours i had a lot of fun in this game. Its a fresh breath to and RPG genre, and you are laughing at all the jokes and your favourite characters from the show. But then as i continue to play its still the same, the combat is the most boring thing ever, i could play original Pokemon NES games for hundreds of hours, but i just cannot finish this game because of the boring gameplay. Don't get me wrong it takes good parody of almost everything about RPG and much more, but if you just make fun of things that doesn't create overall good game experience. For me big disappointment better to go and watch the show than play South park game.
