South Park: The Stick of Truth
Recommend for anyone looking to laugh
South Park: The Stick of Truth is a truly awesome game. With soo many characters (over 100) from past and present, the game is full of incredibly funny moments and surprises that will make you smile. While playing you feel like you are playing/watching an episode of South Park. Choosing from 4 different classes, Mage, Warrior, Thief, & Jew, you play as a character, who can be male or female. Also you can customize your character by selecting from many things like, hair, eye color, make-up, clothes, weapons, armor, and power-ups. Simple turn based game play is easy to understand and controlling your character simple. The story it's self can be played linear, making for a shorter game (especially if you skip cinematic scenes). The side quests can be played before or after you complete the game. Playing the side quest along with the main quest make for a longer and more entertaining game. This one of the first games I wish had DLC content after it's release, other than costumes for your character. The feel of the game makes you wish there was another/or more episode(s) to play.
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....
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!
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
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.
Wow really amazing game!
I admit I was a little skeptical about this game at first only because I personally don't play turn based RPGs. However they have out done themselves on this game the fun rating is through the roof. I can't complain about any aspect of this game. Totally 10 out of 10. Must play.
Laughing all the way, and Loving it.
This game changed my entire outlook on games that are based off of a tv license or movie. Absolutly refined and every step of the way you feel like you are a pivitol member of the world. South Park Stick of Truth delivers not only a great and unique world, but in the true South Park Fashion keeps you laughing all the way through until the end. It makes you feel alive in the world as if you could actually be a South Park Character of your own, and the references to modern gaming culture and stigma made me smile the whole time. The ending caught me off guard which was the best thing, and the world was so immersive with sidequests and loot that my inner RPG fanatic was sated *for now...* I hope to see more of its likeness, but one critique i would have is the sound, which at times would not sync or cut out during an intense moment, leaving me empty. Besides that thought a terrific item, keep making us proud Obsidian it was a true treasure to behold.
Greater than the sum of its parts.
South Park The Stick of Truth marks the first video game I have ever purchased brand new at full price. I was on the fence about it from the first time I saw the trailer on Comedy Central. This game is phenomenal all around. The turn based combat is on par with Star Wars KOTOR, and the story is extremely well done. I'm seventeen hours in, and I believe I'm on the final mission, but I have a tendency to rush through RPG games my first time through (Fallout New Vegas took me just under twenty hours the first time, and over 80 the second.) I bought the game yesterday morning, and woke up this morning with some pretty sore abs. Needless to say from these creators, the game is a laugh riot. It doesn't need to coast on being funny though, because the gameplay is comparable to games like The Elder Scrolls, and the Fallout series. The combat system here is really worth mentioning; there are several different ways to deal lasting damage to your opponent, and the combination of weapon and armor augments is dazzling.
I'm a relatively patient person, but I could not wait for the price drop on this one. Whether you get it now or wait for the drop, don't let anyone ruin this game for you by talking about it, because you'll want to experience this one for yourself.
