South Park: The Stick of Truth
4 May 2014
Conclusion: For a game that everyone expected to be complete junk, this was an amazing surprise. Considering the game packs a decent amount of content on its $60 disk, it is easily a great buy for any fan.
Summary: Prior to The Stick of Truth, I'm not sure I can remember the last time a video game literally made me cry with laughter. I'm sure it's happened, of course, but few games have elicited such genuine belly laughter as a scene in The Stick of Truth where New Kid, the player character, faces off against...
Excerpt: Many people are aware of South Park. It's undeniably one of the most controversial TV shows around, and that's why I like it. Because of my love for the show, I was really excited when Trey Parker and Matt Stone announced that they were working on a video game based on the controversial cartoon, but...

It has been drained of its semantic potency by the hyperbolised headlines of websites like Upworthy and Buzzfeed, and our...
Conclusion: Cards on the table time: not since Rocksteady's Batman Arkham games has a developer so successfully made such an amazing title out of a licensed property, one that not only is a perfect South Park game but an incredible RPG as well.
Conclusion: South Park: The Stick of Truth is not the greatest game that Obsidian could have created, but it is so faithful to the universe on which it is based that any fan will be delighted to experience the new stories, the new gags, the new take on familiar characters, and the impressive way in which the...
