A lot of fun and definitely has the South Park sense of humor on full display. Some really messed up stuff in this game and I loved it. My only gripe is the 30 FPS limit, which I wouldn't mind so much except that it would start to give me a headache during longer play sessions, especially the way the background would move in certain spots. Other than that, the game is 100% worth it and I'm very glad I finally played it.

I remember hearing about this game right before it came out. The youtuber, PewDiePie, was playing it and oh my god I couldn't stop watching. I remember coming home from school every day just to see if he released another episode. When it was over, I told myself that I really want to get into South Park. 2 years later, I finally played the game for 27 hours and now watching the TV show.
This game is really amazing. So many ♥♥♥♥ed up things that most people would get ♥♥♥♥♥♥ about but I just laughed. I don't regret buying this game at all. I can't wait for the new one to come out in December.

If you really like South Park and haven't played it yet, give it a go. The animation is in the same collage style as the infamous series. As expected, there is a lot of fart jokes and adult humour side by side which makes for a really interesting things, but the replay value is not there I'm afraid. I got it on sale for 10 USD. I was happy with that price, but I probably would not want to spend more. Also, be aware that the makers of this game troll you in a couple of places.

I was not a big fan of South Park before this game. I had not seen the TV series and was completely new to the series. But The Stick of Truth blew me away. With fantastic writing and dialogues, this is one of the funniest games out there. The combat is somewhat difficult to understand with the blocking mechanic in a turn based battle, you soon get the hang of it. South Park : The Stick Of Truth is one of the best games I've ever played which is short but doesn't overcome it's stay. Brilliant.

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.

As a fan of the show already, the game provided great fan service for me. The game is fun and the gameplay is solid and the story is hilarious. My only gripe with the game is that it's short, but hopefully that will be changed through the sequel due in October

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.
