This game is basically like playing an extended episode of the show, or rather one of their trilogy episodes. The trademark anything goes humour that made South Park so controversial is there in full, giving fans just what they want. The game takes place as you, the new kid, show up to South Park when the cast is in the middle of a LARP game based on sword and sorcery. You are recruited by Cartman and begin the quest to protect the titular Stick of Truth, giving those who hold it control over the world itself! Or let you make up rules, either or. The gameplay is quite solid. It's a turn-based RPG with the ability to block with correct timing, varied classes for your preferred play style as a Fighter, Mage, Thief, or Jew (basically a Monk for you classic RPG fans). The upgrades and abilities are coming constantly and keeps your tactics changing throughout, and the other characters that form your party all have fun and unique moves (though you are not able to customise them). The only real negatives I would have for this would be that some characters get very impatient when you're setting up for you moves, Stan in particular. It can also sometimes get obnoxious to have to leave a character, go back and find the one required to help you in a certain scenario, then drop them and go back with the one you want to keep around. Having up to 2 others in your party might have helped. All in all, the game is very solid with a fun an hilarious story, great gameplay, and serves as a nice treat for fans of the show and turn-based RPGs in general. I can't wait for the sequel!

It goes without saying that Matt Stone and Trey Parker put out a product that if it doesn't offend you out of watching it right away has a lasting impression which has lasted for quite a few years now. Although this game had it's ups and downs during its release process when it finally ended up coming out it did so with a bang. Looking passed the crude humor and vile over tones this game at its heart pays homage to classic RPG gaming in a way that RPG games haven't done since the PS3 era. Not only is the combat elements of this game done in such a way that it doesn't ever get old, every other aspect of the game (minus the story which I'll touch on in a second) is everything you'd want in a turn based RPG. Items, skills, characters, side quests, you name it South Park SOT delivers in spades. To the point of the story, if you don't like South Park the cartoon you'll be hard pressed to enjoy this game, however, if you can either A. Ignore the story of B. Enjoy South Park this is as close to playing your favorite cartoon as you'll ever get. Finally as this review was written well after it's release I still recommend this as a must play over any amount of time as it is truly that good.

South Park has always been a great show due to its complete lack of political correctness. This is why we love it and the game follows the same line. The story is reminiscent of the best of South Park, guaranteeing hilarity that never gets old. Gameplay wise, the combat is a modernised version of the old JRPG instanced combat tying together reflex and tactics. The combat is not the games strong suit but is not bad. Exploration will be especially fun for any South Park fan as they explore the depths of the town they have watched for so long. A must have for anyone looking for a laugh and a decent RPG to boot.

The Stick of Truth is what happens when South Park makes a RPG parody. The game system is pretty straightforward and simple but it's still fun. The story is short but it's very pleasant thanks to the fact that you create your own avatar that will be the new kid in town. Good fans service and enjoyable mechanics are what define South Park : The Stick of Truth.

South Park The Stick of Truth is a very interesting game. On the one hand you have a simplistic RPG with turn based combat, a rather basic class system and cartoonish graphics, but on the other hand you have a brilliantly crafted representation of the TV show with some of the most wicked sense of humour ever seen in a video game. I have played quite a few RPG games, and although the gameplay mechanics of the Stick of Truth are a little basic, this is definitely one of the better ones I have played. The game captures the South Park theme magnificently and you feel as though you are participating in an episode of the show. What the game lacks in depth it makes up for in presentation and style of humour. Just like the show, this game is absolutely hilarious. Simply put, this is the funniest game I have ever played. There are many different types of jokes and profanities and these really set the scene for the gameplay elements the game provides. Although the game is relatively short (compared to other RPG games) and you will likely see most of what the game has to offer through one playthrough, this is a great game that is definitely worth your time.
