South Park: tsot is like that one friend who always takes it too far. When it's over you'll either love it, or want to break off all contact and never go near it again, but either way you'll love every minute of it

South Park is one of my favorite TV shows. After playing South Park: The Stick of Truth, I believe that is a must-own for any fan of the series.

The game perfectly captures the spirit of the show. It feels like a multi-part episode.

I don't have any issues with South Park: The Stick of Truth. If you're not easily offended, a fan of the show, a fan of RPGs, and over the age of 13, then I highly recommend this to you, but you're easily offended, not a fan of the show, not a fan of RPGs, or under the age of 13, then I highly don't recommend this game to you.

10/10

I really disappointed when I played until the alien and ufo part. Censored gameplay. What the hell is this. Why censored? Really disappointing when game is censored. This is disappointing. Can Ubisoft do something about it? How about limit age group instead of region..

Seriously disappointing. I cannot even play a proper because of censoring bs. Waste my money to buy this crap.

South Park : The Stick Of Truth is a love letter to fans of South Park.
At first i thought this game is just a mindless parody with wonky mechanics.
I was wrong, polished mechanics, ABSOLUTELY funny story line with a lot of swear words.
Amazing turn based system, quests, sidequests, customization, perks and upgradable abilities.
Kind of short for my liking though, but its ok! I will 100% this game someday :D
10/10 Best RPG ever
Can't wait for the sequel, South Park: The Fractured But Whole

The gameplay is Baby's First RPG, but everything else is excellent. If you're a fan of the show, it's a must-own. It's basically an interactive, twelve-hour episode (and in the best way possible).

Stray Points:

Zero replayability. Everything is samey and overly-simple for veteran players. Consider this a one-time investment (an excellent one if you can grab it during a sale).

As noted above, if you're a fan, it's a must-own. That's because 70% of the appeal comes from the strange South Park mythos and all of the in-jokes and gags exclusive thereto. And, much like any quotationalist media, the more you know about the show, the funnier the game is. However, if you aren't a fan of the show, you have absolutely no reason to play this game. If you haven't seen the show, the humor may string you along, but the gameplay really isn't enough to sustain interest, otherwise.

A suprisingly engrossing RPG that doesn't end up as a time sink

How on earth Obsidian entertainment managed to make a good RPG out of South Park is beyond me. I knew they were capable game creators but they ended up crafting not just a good game but a great South park episode. You see and visit the whole town with enough interesting set pieces to stop the game becoming stale. Sewers, homes, streets, very small government facilities, very large bedrooms and...well lets just say something that will fly over peoples heads. The really ingenious aspect is having the whole game set whilst all the children in the town are fully engaged in a live action roleplay game pretending to be in a fantasy world of wizards and elves.
What would have been perfectly acceptable as a storyline takes repeated twists and turns, upping the ante until you would need someone like Morgan Freeman to come out and calmly narrate what the hell is going on. Yet at this point it's too late. You're smile is fixed and it's not going away until the credits roll.

They ended up crafting not just a good game but a great South Park episode

The classes seem to end up having less of an effect on how you play but the animations that occur once you perform certain class specific moves. Weapons and armour have noticable differences in abilities and customization allows a suprisingly deep level of item managment. Much like in other games you will feel the pain of loss for replacing your favourite weapon for a statistical upgrade despite the fact you think it looks worse. Only in this game your favourite weapon will, coincidentally, probably end up being your mothers favourite as well.

Gameplay wise Obsidian have crafted a game that absolutely nails the basics but feels to abandon any attempt at advanced tactics or strategies. Whilst you can certainly use items and afflictions to your advantage there doesn't appear to be further challaenges aside from rushing down the apponenet and instead a greater impact is placed or interacting directly in combat in the form of quick time events. Quick time events are usually the bane of any game but here they are used in combat for boosts to attacking and defedning, spicing up what would otherwise be an animated menu selection into almost a rythm combat game. Somehow it all just works.

Possibly the most underrated and least talked about part of this game is how it won't take your life away. Everyone is familiar with the Bethesda epics like Skyrim, or the Witcher series by CD Projekt RED but so often these games feel like the save file is something you keep as part of your lineage. Handing down to your son when he comes of age and he too will pass it on to his son. That's great for a lot of people for a lot of reasons, but I'd also like games I can completely experience without needing to take half a year off work. South Park can be comfortably completed in under 25 hours and that includes all sidequests and collectibles. If this feels like bad value for money then we will have to fight, just remember to wait your turn.

I have never laughed so much while playing a game. I was not a huge South Park (show) fan but always appreciated the way they addressed current events in a non-politically correct manner. This game has all of the crude humor you expect from the creators and kept me entertained while playing. Like most reviews suggest there is not a lot of replay value but if you want to be grossed-out, have a good laugh and enjoy RPG based games, get it. I am now looking forward to the sequel. Occasionally the game would hang or crash for no reason but the frequent saves kept me from having to repeat any missed steps.

This game is a fun little RPG, the mechanics are fun and easy to grasp. I wasn't a huge fan of the silly Facebook menu stuff but it was innoffensive. Playing this game reminds me a lot of the South Park movie, my favorite peice of South Park media before this game, just stretched out a little and manages to be both a decent game and a movie at the same time. This feels like it was made for lapsed South Park fans like myself, it has all of the greatest hits and things I love about the series. My only complaint is that it's locked to 30fps, though I understand why it would be with the art design. I only had an issue with it when running in the overworld, which is a pretty tiny amount of time. It's just long enough to be worth the money and not overstay it's welcome.
