South Park: The Stick of Truth
Here's the Deal
South Park: Stick of Truth is a great game don't get me wrong, however the storyline for the game is too short. The turn style combat phases are both hilarious and great, along with the different weapons and outfits your character could wear. Another problem I want to bring about is that you can't replay chapters once you beat the game. For a game that has a small storyline you would have thought you would receive something that gives you the ability to replay those chapters to find the weapons, clothes or chinpokomon you missed.
If Ubisoft makes a DLC that has another campaign, than maybe I'll give this game a higher grade....
This game was great for me as a fan of South Park, but the game is still funny for those who haven't seen a single episode.
One of the best games I have played in a long time! Every South Park fan needs This game!!! Must buy!!!!
Great fun for both RPG and South Park fans
I really enjoyed this game. It has elements of RPGs and plenty of Fan Service for lovers of South Park
Growing up watching the show, I bonded with the "South Park" cast, but now, time & technology, has brought forth an enticing opportunity; all fans (young & old) will enjoy, only to replenish the life of "South Park" as we know it!
It's an interactive episode of South Park. Perfect
If you ever wanted to live in and explore the world of South Park and actually feel like you're in the show, this game is for you. It's perfect from beginning to end, filled with thousands of throwbacks to the show and anything else you can think of. The writing, dialogue and setting are all spot on. The rpg elements are awesome with fun leveling and a tremendous amount of loot almost all of which are little Easter eggs from the show. The only two downsides I can think of are the fact that you can get the entire game in one play through as there aren't too many side quests and the second being that there are I believe only two points in the entire game where you actually make a choice but it all leads to the same path in the game. That aside it is one of the greatest games I have ever played and it is definitely the best South Park game that may ever be invented. One last thing, if you ever get the chance to go inside of someone, just walk away for one of the funniest and most surprising parts of the entire game.
The season 18 of South Park
This game is quite a wonderful experience for gamers and South Park fans. The game starts off with a hilarious and interesting story talking about the stick of truth and the never ending war between humans or kingdom of kupa keep (kkk) and the elves. You can make your character and choose your class. The class sets are from warrior, Mage, thief, and Jew. The sounds and graphics are quite amazing and looks like the show. The game is quite short like 12-13 hours of gameplay. You can still replay the game and choose a different look and different class. I still recommend this game no matter what, but if you get easily offended or don't like South Park's joke then don't get the game. Over all I will give this game a 9/10. I would give it a solid ten if it was longer and more side missions and you didn't have to level cap at 15. I still recommend the game but wait for the price to drop a bit before getting it.
Great fun, lacking replayability
South park is known for is over the top humor and its ability to make censors do a double take, The Stick Of Truth stays true to this formula with all the crazy hi-jinks that fans are used to while not alienating new players. The story is well written, you take control of a new neighbor kid who joins the others as they are playing a Game Of Thrones-esque role playing game. The animations are done quite well, even in the art style of south park everything looks great while not looking great. The only problem I have with this game is that doesn't really have any replayability, sure you can play trough twice to get all the achievements but other then that there really isn't a draw to do so. Long time fans will love the game because its more of what we all love from south park, and new players that have never seen south park will be immersed in a world that is entertaining and full of off the wall jokes.
Purchase only if you're a South Park fan
This game was excellent, with a caveat. I personally enjoy the show South Park and was very excited to get this game. Though it is very short (~14 hours with all side quests) it provided references to the show and previous South Park shenanigans throughout and the humor never went stale. The graphics were made using the same software to create the show and so the entire game has the potential to be mistaken for it, in fact I've had several people walk in on me and ask which episode of South Park I was watching. I can only describe the gameplay as RPG lite, turn based, with constant switching out of weapons, armor, and upgrades to better stated equipment. Long story made very short if you enjoy South Park get this game, though when the price drops. $60 is too much to spend on a 14 hr trip. If you don't like South Park this game will be a torturous exercise of patience for you, so don't get it.
On Target Game Through and Through!
First let's just hit why I didn't give it a 10... replay potential... that is all, it is possible to see and achieve all side quests, collectibles the first time through. The game hits graphically as if you are watching an episode of SP. That being said it isn't state of the art visual graphics but perfect visual graphics for this game. The hardcore gamer will love this but it is still very easy to get used to, so I do believe casual gamers can pick this up and be hooked instantly. The side quests are funny, inappropriate and rude... AKA perfect for a true SP fan. Another beautiful piece to this was the 8-bit graphic styled adventure to Canada that has an old NES RPG feel which was both funny and nostalgic at the same time. There were about 3 different times where the story could have stopped but the creative writing and abstract thinking pushes the game further into the bizarre and hilarious world of all our favorite South Park characters. The upgrades, magic and character combinations that you can battle with are great. So come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine!
