Holy sh|t, what a ride.

Obsidian hit every single mark and checkbox with this one. They hit the nail on its head, the plank on the jump, and the ball outta the park - and into space.

Everything about the game is brilliant and so true to its origins that it's almost scary. More than anything, it feels like watching a marathon of all the best stuff the show has had to offer through the years. It's been a while since I saw any South Park episodes, but this game has convinced me to start watching the show again.

I haven't laughed this hard and loud in what feels like forever - there where moments when I had to pause the game before continuing because my sides were hurting so much. I swear I had tears in my eyes at one point.

Sure, the jokes may be hit and miss if you're not a fan of the show, but then again, why would you even have the game, or be interested in playing it? This is a gift to the fans and for my part, I loved every second of it. It put a big, fat smile on my face and wouldn't let go until my stomach had been churned to oblivion from so many insane pranks and jokes.

I got this gifted, but would have been happy to pay full price for this South Park masterpiece. I see it has already Overwhelmingly Positive recommendations, both recent and old, and I just have to agree - this game is truly a gem and an absolute must if you have the slightest interest in South Park and its bizarre lore and inhabitants. Wholeheartedly recommended to every wizard, ranger, thief, druid, bard - and new kid around.

Great game, although more for the humor and story than the gameplay. I've enjoyed it every time I've played it, until now. I was doing an achievement run and Shoe simply never spawned, keeping me from the John Lennon achievement. Still 8/10 would play again..

For most people this game is going to be an amazing amazing amazing experience if you enjoy the show South Park or raunchy humor in general. The problem is there seems to be bugs during certain mini games you MUST pass to continue the game. These bugs wont effect many people, but looking around on the internet there seems to be no fix and when it hit you man does it suck!

The issue is centered around hit detection. The game requires you to give very specific commands(like wiggling a joystick then pressing A at the proper time)but it just does not detect what the player is doing. I was feeling for awhile like both I and my wife(who I passed the control to in frustration) must be stupid, but the issue both came up repeatedly during each mini game segment and I can find numerous topics where others have the same issue. I can also pass these segments at a friends house and have no problem completing the fart EVERY time without trouble in the main game itself. It was only in the mini game segments this occurs! One segment was so bad that all you have to do is literally just push down at the right time and it just would not detect us pushing down or responded late.

Up to the point I quit in frustration it was an amazing amazing game and I have to say MOST people are going to love this one. Its just a monster of a head ache when you hit bugs. And this game is yet again an example of why steam needs a better rating system! It does not deserve a thumbs down, but I certainly cant give it a thumbs up with the issues I have had.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is a turned-based RPG. As the new kid in South Park, you get involved in a LARP opposing Cartman's Humans against Kyle's Elves, while the quiet little mountain town is place to events beyond what the kids anticipated.

Pros: This is a South Park fan's heaven, filled with fan service from across all seasons, with almost every characters from the show making an appearance or being referenced at some level. Most loot are winks to episodes: a sarcastiball trophy, a shake weight, an Antonio Banderas love doll, an Okama Gamesphere, and hundreds more. If an episode reference wasn't in the loot, it's out there on display in a kid's room or closet. Every shop or radio play songs from the show (Chef, Jennifer Lopez, DVDA songs, you name it). The game smells of Matt Stone and Trey Parker's very-involved participation: the voice acting, the politically incorrect script and often down right disgusting language, the humor and how it critiques society. You feel like you're an actual character in South Park, forth wall breaks saved by the fact that you're playing a game about playing a game. Graphically, it looks exactly like the show, nothing groundbreaking but exactly what you'd expect.

Cons: The game is extremely basic with little depth in the mechanics. You pick one of four unoriginal classes ("Jew" is just a stand-in for the typical "Priest") with small skill trees each. You can to equip 2 weapons and 3 pieces of armor (no class-specific items) with one or two customizable perk slots, some of which can be dyed assuming you found that dye color tube in-game. There's also and some wigs or face paints, but they don't serve any purpose. The story is short and rather bare-bones. If you skip the exploration (which only fans will care for) and few optional sidequests, you'll be through within 10 hours.

Verdict: ★★★★☆ - Next on your list

If you are not a fan of South Park, STAY AWAY! But if you are, this is an unquestionable must have. To the fan, it's a Season worth of content, jokes, running gags and nostalgia. If you have any interest in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, start with this game first.

Pure comedic gold, a fantastic working of the TV show in to a game, as f-d up as you'd expect (and more), really very enjoyable exploring South Park and lots of references to all the characters and episodes. Turns out i'm not a fan of turn based rpgs, but it doesnt matter as nothing is off limits in this game! If you like the show, this game is a must have.

This game for fans of south park, or people that just like that kind of humor. If you have seen south park and disliked it however, this game isn't going to be for you, as the strongest point really is the humor and characters. The voices are the same and the entire game is filled with references. So many references to episodes that I ended up surprised that going number two in a urinal with mr mackey nearby didn't give me any special comment from my companion. Which I didn't expect going into the game, but again... There was so many minor characters or item references in the game.

I enjoyed every minute of my first playthrough as a fan of the show. (Just for the record far from the biggest fan, since there are a lot of episodes I haven't seen, and I am sure there were references to those that I missed.) Chances are that you will see your favorite character at least make an appearance.

The combat is turnbased rpg with each character having different abilities and moves. And the abilities require different forms of excecution sometimes button mashing, hitting the right keys, click or hold the mousebutton, but each ability tell you how to execute it before you cast it, so it is nice and manageable.

As for the story... It is southpark, don't expect the characters' actions to be logical. And the fewer questions you ask the better. Just enjoy the ride and expect that everyone around you is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ or an idiot, or both.

So yeah, if you like south park's humor, then buy this. If not... Then run. Really, this game isn't holding back on any of the jokes, and it is really immature and gross in its comedy. Because of south park's style I feel they can get away with more, because nothing really looks realistic in the slightest but still. If you think South Park's humor and characters are too offensive, then this game won't help.

For me this is a great game, probably among my favorites because i enjoyed the entire experience. Which means, that the nitpicks I have are more... wishes for more features in future games. I wish that you could be a bit more unique character than just one of the normal boys. Maybe let you be a canadian boy, or a fatass like Cartman. Or let you be a girl, or a fat girl like the goth Henrietta. Is it needed? Probably not, but I would like it. I also would have loved more weird classes, like the Jew class already in the game. Maybe getting a princess/girl class like Kenny. Or a vampire class. Also would have loved just more. More of everything! :P I am finished, I want another.

____

On another note, that is not really a part of the review. The next game is called South Park: The fractured but whole. And this time they are going to be superheroes instead of humans and elves. And while I think the combat will be different, I think it is much like this one going to be dripping with the humor of south park. Preordering it means you get the stick of truth "for free" right away. Personally I see it more as paying 30 for each instead of 60 for one. Can't say if the next one will be good, but I loved the episodes I have seen in the show where they dressed up as superheroes.
I know Cartman says the only thing you get for preordering a game is a big fat ♥♥♥♥ in your mouth. Seems good if you like me didn't already have stick of truth.

The Stick of Truth is a pretty good game.

I'm a fan of these type of games, turn based combat with you on the left and the enemy on the right. These kind of RPGs are some of the best of the best. It's not a very long game, but the time spent is worth it I'd say. This satisfies my hunger for a decent Paper Mario game, which this reminds me of quite a bit.

Also.. make sure your parents aren't watching when you play this.

Guy Fieri rates this game 9/10 and would like to induct into the Flavortown Game Library.

I am in utter shock at the quality of this game. These two can do no wrong it appears when they really set their mind to it. I'd love for another new installment to feature mulitplayer but otherwise, what an impressive showing with this title. It's made me laugh so many times that I cannot keep count and reliving all the amazing characters we've seen over this illustrious run of episodes is worth playing the game alone. I sincerely hope they do another one for the new consoles, as the game may be even more their calling than the show, and that's really REALLY saying something.
