Much much better than one would expect, but it could have been much better.

Battles are extremely short, even most boss battles take 3-4 turns while other fights will take 1-2. This is because damage over time is sooooo strong that you can stack it up and watch the boss lose 50% of their hp in a turn. Attacks that do not stack damage over time are extremely weak comparatively, so combat is not balanced and there is essentially no challenge.

The story itself is also far too short; there are several side quests, but that doesn't make up for it. The level cap is only 15 and you will hit the cap before the end even if you skip all side missions.

Keep in mind these points take into consideration that this is supposed to be a casual and silly game. I wasn't expecting Final Fantasy, it just still could have been better in some areas.

Negatives aside, combat as well as the journey are extremely hilarious and fun your first and second time through the game. Skills in combat are really fun to use and have cool animations.

If you don't mind paying $1/hour or even $2/hour it's worth it at full price, but I hope it's on sale when you choose to buy it.

Pros:
  • Hilarious dialogue
  • Item descriptions always have something witty written in them
  • Game looks stylized to the perfect degree
  • Enemies and areas always have a comical and varied edge
  • Character customization is huge

Cons:
  • Extremely easy to beat without real strategy (excluding Al Gore)
  • Has you exploring the same areas time and time again
  • Quests feel unrewarding and tiresome

This game I could only reccomeend to a select group of people because of my mixed feelings on the balancing of gameplay and humor in the game. While "The Stick of Truth" will have you experiencing an extremely funny journey, the actual gameplay is extremely lacking in depth and strategy. South Park fans and those looking for a laugh will love the game, but if a real RPG experience is what you desire, this is not the game for it.

South Park The Stick of Truth does a great job of making players feel like they are part of a South Park episode with the texture, atmosphere, and humor. Fans of the South Park series will love this game because of the refrences from the episodes of South Park layered in the game from the radio, characters, and much more. The gameplay is turn based with the player's charater and companions having to interact with thier desired move by timing mouse clicks or button presses at the right time. This mechanic makes the turn based gameplay a bit more interesting then choosing the desired attack by making players interact more in battle. It wouldn't be South Park without making fun of something or someone so the game makes fun of famous game titles like Skyrim with the use of 'dragon shout' by farting on players, which can be combined with your other attacks or used to interupt an enemy charging up their special attack. There are four classes to choose from one of them being the Jew class that can actaully be overpowered at times, but is a funny reference to one of the original characters from the south park series. The problems i have with this game are some of the achievements being difficult, some actions freezing up causing players to load from last save, and bad implemintation any replayability. The achievements are not only difficult but ridiculious because forgeting to talk to certain people to be on your friends list or missing a complete set of armor means having to restart the entire game to get back to the point you missed. The character freezing has happend only a few times but not manually saving before hand may cause people hours of backtracking as it only loads manual saves instead of auto saves. Replayability of this game is weaksauce as the end of the game is free roam with limited areas to go to and nothing really to do but walk around and finish up certain achievements. A new game plus would have been good here but I think the developers did this intentually so players would have to start over as a new character to get more hours out of this game. Overall this game is great even with some of the gripes mentioned. Fans and non fans of the South Park series will really enjoy this game unless you don't like crude humor then this might not be your game. I strongly recommend this game for the sheer fun and laughter it gives to players and hours of fun it has to offer. If you can get this game at a reduced price even better!

I called it at the very beginning of the game. I said "I bet you that the Dragborn will have to fart on a princess's balls in order to save the nazi zombies from Taco Bell."

Aside from that predictable plot line, I bought an awesome season of South Park for like $13. Their next game will be a day one purchase.

Ahhh SOOOO good. If you're a fan of South Park this is perfect for you. If you haven't seen South Park, it's still perfect. It's turn based fighting, all old school-esque but it works and is so much fun. It's just so funny. And still, in true South Park fashion, crosses so many lines that I didn't think a game would cross. Easily one of the best/funniest games I have ever played.

My parents said I should go out an make some friends. I came home with my hair dyed purple, and tied into a ponytail with the prettiest pink ribbon. Somehow dad was the only person who noticed it, and when he voiced his disapproval I hit him with a baseball bat. I hit him with a baseball bat six times! I guess you could say he had it coming.

Then the same thing happened when I booted up this game, but with an actual sword. And farting was involved.

Still haven't succeeded in catching the dragon.

South Park came a long way since its humble beginnings - from crappy (pun intended) toilet humor to razor-sharp criticism of today's society, all the way to acid induced nonsense, it was crappy animated middle finger of TOTAL FUN.

Last South Park game that I remember playing (beside South Park tables for Pinball FX2) was the one on Playstation One. It was FPS that I truly loved.

In 2014, South Park came back with the bang... and The Stick of Truth right up our asses.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is basically simpler Skyrim meeting The Lord of The Rings in at least 10 hours long episode of South Park. You're the New Kid and you've just arrived to South Park where you've moved with your parents. Turns out idyllic mountain town is not that idyllic at all because soon enough you end up in the middle of fantasy war between Humans and Elves. Humans, led by one and only grand wizard Eric Cartman are trying to save The Stick of Truth and take it way from fiendish elves led by Kyle. But the new dangers loom...

The brilliance of this game is the fact Trey Parker and Matt Stone were leading a team in completely successful experiment of recreating classic South Park episode and making it interactive. Obsidian Entertainment used all the well known elements and characters of numerous South Park episodes spanning all the way back to Season 1. I have to admit I was a bit skeptic about how will this mash up turn out, but it passed with flying marks. Music, graphics and sounds are also 100% faithful to the TV show. Crude humor and politically insensitive remarks (try creating a Jew class or black character and see what happens) are still top notch, so the easiest thing to be said here is: if you're getting insulted by South Park TV show, you might back away and never look this way again.

As for the game mechanics, from the intro videos until the last game credits, it's easy to recognize parody. The menu shines The Skyrim way, and the RPG system is surprisingly simple, yet effective. This is a prime example of good game balance, where all the elements are put together to satisfy RPG fans, but never disturb people who just want to interact and watch this episode. Moving the difficulty slider really makes you choose how you want to play your game. It would be correct to state that roleplaying elements are serving the South Park story in all the right ways. Turn-based combat lets you pick items, plan your attacks, interact with your allies. Special moves often implement ridiculous mini-game strategies such as mashing buttons when Jimmy stutters to pump up your abilities. The game is choke full of details, little stuff that will make you laugh HARD.

The thing I need to point out as fantastic are controls. I've started playing this game using a controller and switched to keyboard and mouse. The transition was easy-peasy. Controls are seriously well-made.

South Park: The Stick of Truth delivers. It delivers humor, attitude, playability and fun. It surely is one of the best games I've played in my life (and believe me, I've played a lot), and surprisingly good, but simplistic RPG as well. Actually, since Max Payne 3 it was the first game that never had a dull moment and I didn't want it to end.

This game has got to be one of the games that did the job perfectly recreating the world of the series.The detail of the world they put it in extremely enjoyable thanks to Trey Parker and Matt Stone.Personally I was never a fan of turn based games,for a fact I actually avoided them like a plague but after Stick of Truth I always take a second look at turn based games.Now as for this tittle its an open world free roam South Park game!Thats pretty much the best description possible.If you're familiar with the series than you should absolutely get this one since it has all of your favourite characters which you can set to be your buddies which means they can follow you around while you do some exploring.The game mechanics and battle system is very easy to understand and easy to master,although the game is best to be played using a controller.Theres many things to do such as quests,from finding the collectible Chinpokomon,to the apparels and many other awesome weapons.About the requirements nothing much is needed to be said since it does not requre a tough system to run at all.This game has proved that games based on series and TV shows can actually be very succesfull and entertaining.
Absolute 10/10 from me.Well worth the money,especially if its on a discount.

It relates to the tv series and it is funny as hell! xD

I can recommend the game to people who watch the tv series or people who has a dark sence of humor! xD

There are sometimes in the game, when you are stuck and don't know what to do, but that is only frustation! Still the game gives alot of different missions and has a great main story.

Oookay, I did not have such a good laugh for a very long time. I don't even have to tell you that the game is just as genuine as an entire season on TV, with nothing cut short and with every single nasty detail of it. It was awesome. It has original voice acting, the same awesome characters we know and love, and a huge repertoire of jokes that will never cease to surprise you.

The gameplay itself is played as an open world RPG with turn based battles. The battle itself is actually very good in RPG way, simple enough for anybody to understand it, and hillarious at the same time. We can talk about an "open world" here. But this open world is pretty 2D, which of course matches perfectly the game, and the show. Also South park was recreated in incredible detail, and everything will instantly feel familiar.

For the fans of the show: It's a must have! Absolutely. For those who don't like the show, you should stay away of this game. Because anything you don't like about the show, you will find it in here.

I had an awesome time, and I am very glad that I picked this one up.

Yaaazi, a awesome game to have fun, you need to protect the Stick of Truth, Are you able to do it?
You can create your kid at your own way (mine was really amazing, handsome, fantastic and other qualities), after it you will join the South Park city like a normal child, trying to have new friends you will discover a deeply secret world, and to have the confidence of kids in your neighboorhood you will must to do some favors for them, really weird normal and cool.
I need to advice, South Park™: The Stick of Truth™ is not a game to everyone, If you really want to buy and never watched the show I recommend you to watch at least some episodes just to understand the jokes made in the game.
Another recommendation: You must know that South Park have no limits and like the show, the game works in the same way, what it means? It means the game has a lot some nasty scenes. If you are not comfortable seeing things like a kid exploring a man's ♥♥♥ (literally, I really have no words to explain how it happens).

All the heart of South Park's wit and humor in a JRPG reminiscient of Paper Mario for the N64. This game captures South Park in its essence and does the name well.

That said, there are a few graphical glitches which may detract from the experience.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is everything that fans of both South Park and classic turn-based RPGs are looking for. It plays just like an episode of South Park, and it's snarky humor and references to the show are great. I find myself unable to put it away sometimes, simply because it's a blast to play through, and it's hilarious. The replayability has a pretty steep dropoff, since after just a couple of playthroughs you've pretty much seen all the game has to offer, but I still find myself going back just for the pure entertainment. Definite 9/10.

The game was a lot of fun but definitely lacked content. I had two runs through the game and both took about 16 hours.
Your character class doesn't matter much as in the end of the game there is a certain weapon set that will carry you.
Fun but wasn't worth the full price that I payed.
