Great for any fan of the show!randompokes | April 16, 2014 | See all randompokes's reviews »
South Park is basically a parody of Skyrim/Game of Thrones/LotR with the gameplay style of Paper Mario. You play the new kid who never talks (Douchebag as everyone calls you) with legendary power of excellent anal control (no joke) and your “dragon shouts” are flaming farts and such.
It’s turn-based with button commands that need to be executed in order to attack and defend. No sitting around and hammering the X button to get through battles. There are a lot of environmental puzzles that you do outside of combat, so it’s kinda a mixed genre game. Loads of collectibles too, such as Facebook friends, costumes and Chinpokomon dolls.
The game is completely in the style of the show, so it’s all 2D with layered sets. You get to see the entire town of South Park, since it’s open world and do quests for characters from the show. Your enemies are other kids playing, drunk hobos, and ginger kids, among other silly things.
South Park fans rejoice!Chack | April 14, 2014 | See all Chack's reviews »
I like South Park, I don't really watch it often but when I do I find it funny (sometimes), this is a turn-based RPG kind of like Paper Mario, the humor of the series is there, the gameplay is well done, the graphics make you think you are watching an episode of the TV show, I don't really have a bad thing to say about this game except that it may be a little too easy, I didn't die that often. Also something we should think about is if you don't like South Park you should get this game... and the answer is, it may be a little tedious but the gameplay won't affect you, so go for it if you like the genre.
Something that's been missing from recent RPGs.PandaATV | April 2, 2014 | See all PandaATV's reviews »
With the transition of RPGs into the next gen, there's been plenty of missteps. More development time going into updated graphics and new combat systems have driven old fans into hiding as players aren't experiencing the same magic that RPGs have given them in the past, but I can honestly say that South Park: The Stick of Truth has some of that magic.
I'll get this out of the way though, the combat system in this game is really simple and you won't feel challenged for the most part BUT this style of combat is intuitively engaging for all players. It might not be hard, but it keeps players on their toes and engaged enough to keep playing the game, at least for a few playthroughs.
The real RPG gems about South Park is the seamless transition of the their trademark animation style onto a video game world and the high-octane story that feels very true to life in more ways than one.
If you're an RPG fan, you should appreciate when the right art style, the right environment, coupled with the right type of story can do to an RPG game. The combination of all those things can create a truly engaging RPG experience and really takes you into a whole new world that feels familiar and exciting.
Definitely a must-buy for any South Park fan, but still a solid RPG outing for the rest of us.

Im not a fan of south park but the game is a great old school RPG and shocking with a fun story the keep me playing. but on the other hand it is still south park so had just wrong and bad jokes at times
Fantastic slap stick humor!dalbelo | April 1, 2014 | See all dalbelo's reviews »
I would like to start by saying I do NOT follow the show regularly. I watch an episode occasionally, but I do enjoy it when I do watch. I am familiar with most of the characters and some of the more popular episodes from old to current.
This game is great for story entertainment. It is for mature audience, so the bad words are not bleeped and any naughty animation is not blocked out, which actually makes it a bit more enjoyable for adults to give the feeling of not playing a childrens game. The story line is great and there are so many episodes referenced from something as minor as a piece of junk you may find to sell at a shop or a weapon you find to use.
The only downside I found to the game is it is VERY easy, too easy. If your mind set is to purchase to enjoy a very extended interactive South Park episode, this is a great purchase! If your in it for the challenge, you may want to try a different RPG.
