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 family 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.

This game is surprising. You know when you buy it, you are going to get a southpark franchise game. What you do not expect is the story is be gripping, and with some level of depth. You dont expect the RPG aspects to actually have some meat to them and real thought needs to be put into what you do and do not wear.

bottom line - This game is worth every penny of 30 dollars or more. If you are a die hard SouthPark fan, then its worth the full 60. For people who simply want a fun game with no super intense thought to put in, this hits every mark possible. Its graphically amusing, insults everything you would expect, and even surprises you often with "why did they put this there, this is awesome!".

A Must pick up for casual RPG players and REALLY sets a bar that the new game must achieve or will flop.

I am one of these players of this game that haven't whatched the serie so much before playing the game. But I enjoyed the game so much. The characters are so funny and are very precise to how they are in the serie (as far as I've seen.).
The story is a fun and entertaining adventure you enjoy all the way through. Plus the side missions are so fun to do.
I think that you should try the game if you get the chance.
30/30

This game is almost as raunchy as the tv show and I can't wait until The Fractured But Whole comes out. From anal probes to ManBearPig, this game is for the biggest fans of the tv show.

Good RPG mechanics, amazing soundtrack, interesting story and... Well it's South Park. I've been blown away by the amount of references in the game. Obsidian knows how to make good games and knows how to make RPGs. You can't miss this if you're a South Park fan. Also doesn't require UPlay which is good.

OH MY GOD! THEY KILLED KENNY! YOU BASTAAAAARDS!

This game is awesome. Like, really, really awesome. It's full of a bunch of surprises and funny moments. However, there are a lot of things wrong with this game.
There's a crap ton of glitches. Well, at least for me.
The only useful characters to play as really are Butters, Kyle, and sometimes Stan. Cartman, Kenny, and Jimmy are not the best fighters. So only half of the characters are useful. Yeah...
The instructions/quests can be really unclear sometimes. Heck, I spent half an hour trying to solve a simple quest.
If you're like me and you like to play with the steam controller, lemme just say that it's horrible with this game. It does fix the magic attacks, however.
Magic attacks in combat are broken when using the keyboard for some whatever reason.
The game is way too short.
Overrall, I rate this game a 7/10. It's fun and all, but I feel like it could've been longer. Hopefully Fractured but Whole will fix everything wrong with this game. After you beat the game, I recommend getting a refund if you aren't going to do anything else afterwards.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is a hillarious experience for everyone, even for those who dont watch South Park.
Your character, the new kid in south park, goes around and meets the main characters of the South Park show that we have grown to love. You meet Butters and get thrrown into a hillarious story line.
Wandering around South Park is funn attempting to freind as manny people as you can, but the game is very easy to beat, and unless your atempting to unlock all the achivements or find all the easter eggs in this game, you will find yourself finished with the game a lot faster then what you wanted to.

What can I say about South Park the stick of truth? Well it is a very well done rpg if you like south Park then you should already have this game. It puts you right in the middle of the South Park world you play as the new kid with the power of the Dragonborn by South Park standards. It puts most of the content of the show into this game as possible it has many many collectibles. Another thing that I like is that a potato could run this game it takes minimal resources to run this game. If you end up liking this game another one is coming in a few months. So what are you waiting for BUY IT!!!!!
