While both the Stick of Truth and the Fractured But Whole are great games, The biggest problem I personally have with them is that they are both over priced in my opinion. I won't deduct stars for that here though a part of me really wants to. I'm going to focus my score on the game itself, and it is an awesome game. If you are a fan of the South Park show then this game will be familiar to you. It plays like an actual episode from the show with a better story than the movie. There are a few uncomfortable scenes in the game though so if you don't want boundary pushing gags or nudity with sexual content, you may want to steer clear of this. If you can look past that though, then this game is a great find for any South Park fan. If you haven't played either one then it is best to start with this one as it has a better story and the plot from the second pretty much picks up from where this one ends.
South Park is well known show that needs no introduction or explaining. The Stick of Truth is all about fan service and the plot is really, really good, quality of it is off the charts and it might be considered the best episode of south park ever created. It is full of laughs and everything that makes the show a great and fun to watch. Graphics and sound are simply amazing - it feels like the show, it sounds like the show, it is ultimate South Park experience, with you being able to walk through whole city of South Park and rifle every room for goodies (and easter eggs/nods to the show). Where it is somewhat lacking is the gameplay. It is simplest type of turn based RPG you can think of. You attack, enemy attacks, you fill special, obliterate enemy with special. It is okay, but nothing really amazing. What is good is that the game doesn't overstay its welcome and while 14 hours might not sound long on paper (or monitor/review in this case), in the game it is more than enough and gameplay doesn't get annoying. Shame there is no endgame, but on the other hand, you might replay it again as different class (for laughs, because there is barely any difference worth talking about between classes). Downside to this game to some might be the fact that it is based on South Park - if you don't like the show or are easy to get offended, you will hate it with a passion. If you look for deep RPG, look elsewhere, because there are no deep choices to be made. This game is all about catering to fanbase with fanservice first and foremost and if you're fan of the show, you deserve and absolutely must play this game, because you're missing out on really awesome episode (and miles better than recent 2 ones).
