    Housing a story that is both offensive, yet hilarious, ludicrous, yet serious is a rare achievement but this game accomplishes it. The overhauled combat also keeps strategy a key part of gameplay so tactical thinking is always rewarded.

    Just like The Stick of Truth, The Fractured But Whole is 100% South Park. This is a must for fans of the show, while those who enjoy a challenging RPG will delight in cranking up the difficulty and working through its many systems.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole is an excellent continuation of its first title, which comes loaded with humour and action. Maybe there are more complete games among the RPG genre, but not as fun and endearing as the new South Park title, which is coming to try to please both fans of the series and newcomers alike. A must have.

    While the enhanced battle system is definitely a big step forward, a lot of other elements including the script don’t click as effectively as they did in “The Stick of Truth”. But Coon, Call Girl and Toolshed can be proud to be a part of the “Second best South Park game of all time”.

    In the end South Park: The Fractured But Whole makes me very happy, and I do think farts are funny – at least funny enough for two games.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole is the epitome of a sequel. Almost to its detriment the game delivers more of what we loved about the first one. There is plenty of content, excellent writing, I just wish it took more risks in the game play and pacing department. Otherwise this is yet another stellar game in the already crowded 2017 lineup.

    With the great story and new gameplay mechanics its not hard to imagine that the score for this game would have definitely been higher, as the game was good up to where I couldn't progress any further. That being said, since I couldn't fully enjoy South Park: The Fractured But Whole with the bug that stopped me, I'm left feeling mediocre about this game. It's kinda of sad too, as I was enjoying much of what I played, but to have the game 'break', and leave me stranded, is a big letdown, and something that affects how this game scores overall.

    A first-impressions early review:

    South Park: TFBW feels very much like Stick of Truth. To make it as plain as possible, if you liked SoT, you'll probably like this game, too.

    The biggest immediate change to combat is the grid system, which adds new depth to combat. However, they've also taken away some of the combos, at least in the early hours of the game, that sort of balances it out so that the combat is different, but not necessarily more or less difficult. Parrying remains intact, thankfully.

    The story obviously revolves around the Coon & Friends from the TV show, and much like Stick of Truth, you feel like you're watching a long South Park episode while also being emersed in the world of the show.

    The humor is still there, toilet and otherwise. The game is presented in a way that makes it difficult to know what's really happening "in real life" to our characters while they imagine that they have super speed or laser eyes. We get little hints of it, such as them having to pause a fight to move out of the way of oncoming cars.

    One annoyance is that you can't skip the cutscenes of your superpower. That's fine for now, but I can see it getting pretty annoying later.
    I'm disappointed they doubled down on the fart mechanics because I never really liked that aspect of the SoT, but it's a small complaint. Like SoT, they're able to get away with much more than on the TV show (much like they did with the movie). I've already started seeing this in the early hours.

    The graphics are noticeably better. I've read about framerate issues but haven't experienced them yet. The load times are semi-often but pretty quick. Some last only 1-3 seconds, like when you're walking down the street and there's a load point.

    It seems to have more RPG elements than its predecessor. It's different enough that it's worth a play, even if you (re)played (like me) SoT recently. I've read it's about 20 hours, but if you're like me, you'll spend more than that looking around, doing sidequests, and backtracking unnecessarily because I'm not paying attention to the map.

    You basically have a phone with apps now. The "social network" aspect has been heavily expanded, the main platform now seemingly Instagram. It's a bit weird to ask an 80-year-old woman for a selfie, but how else are you going to raise your social network influence.

    Again, the simplest way to put this is that if you like South Park and you like Stick of Truth, you're most likely going to like this game.

    Nice game, very good and funny,
    not that hard, and the jokes are very like the tv show.

    totally recommend to anyone who loves the show.

    Je viens de le finir et mon avis se fera a chaud.
    c'est un bon jeu a licence dans la veine du Baton de la vérité, un humour comme je les aimes, des scènes qui m'ont surpris (la scène dans le strip club, le pouvoir du héros), le gameplay est plutot simple dans son ensemble et hormis les combats de boss (qui traine parfois en longueurs) , j'ai trouvé les autres combats beaucoup plus ennuyeux, l'ambiance vous plaira si vous etes deja sensible a l'univers de south park.

    Une bonne durée de vie ( quasi 20 heures pour moi) avec quelques temps morts mais rien de bien grave.
    la ou le bat blesse c'est la traduction VF qui n'est pas version officielle, ceci a été mon plus gros point noir, j'ai donc fais le jeu en VOSTFR( ayant fait le baton de la vérité en vostfr car pas la choix mais ayant énormément apprécié la vo) j'ai pris un grand plaisir sur ce jeu mais je ne peux m'imaginé le plaisir qu'aurait été le mien si la vf officielle avait été présent sur le jeu.

    I FINALLY beat this game today, and i can safely say that the last 3-4 hours were a 100% waste of time and didn't need to be in the gameI FINALLY beat this game today, and i can safely say that the last 3-4 hours were a 100% waste of time and didn't need to be in the game whatsoever. This game has the worst plot out of any game I've ever played by far, it's RARELY funny, and the story literally seems like it was written by 6 year olds. The Stick Of Truth absolutely blows this game out of the water. The character customization at later levels in this game is pretty much the only cool thing you will experience in Fractured But Whole.
