Conclusion: To be honest, South Park: The Stick of Truth is a fun game. While the combat is simple, the most rewarding part of it is all the animations and the sweet sense of relief knowing you timed a special attack just right, adding extra damage to a tough enemy.
Conclusion: South Park: The Stick of Truth captures the heart and soul of its source material better than any other licensed game on the market. Though not a particularly long game, the experiences and situations you’ll encounter stand out for their sheer audacity and hilariously poor taste.
