South Park: Tenorman's Revenge
2 September 2013
Summary: If the South Park kids had aged with the rest of us, they'd be in their early twenties. Stan would have likely gone to college on a football scholarship, maybe Kyle would be in law school by now. And I imagine Eric Cartman would be suffering from diabetes while Kenny, trapped by his economic status in that small town, probably would have taken up meth. Out of all of them, Kenny would have the best likelihood of finding enjoyment in Tenorman's Revenge .
Excerpt: South Park has been trying to find its footing in gaming since the late '90s, having tried genres like first-person shooters, tower defense, and now platforming. South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge attempts to maintain the TV show’s funny, nonsensical, and often offensive tone, but falls short of creating the engaging multiplayer experience found in other 2D platformers, like New Super Mario Bros. Wii’s four player co-op.
Pros: Playing with a group of four, Pushing co-op buddies over ledges, South Park fan service
Cons: Fighting gingers and collecting items is tedious, Completing a level doesn’t mean you can progress to the next, Dull environments

Summary: While not as good as its competition in this genre, Tenorman’s Revenge is at least decent for its price. South Park fans will find a lot to like in the presentation, and those who enjoy co-op platformers should check it out if you’ve already finished other games of this type.
Excerpt: Scott Tenorman has a right to be angry. After all, he was tricked into eating his own parents by one Eric Cartman. Seeking vengeance for swallowing bites of parental meat disguised as chili is understandable, and maybe even advisable. But Scott's vengeance covers such a wide area that innocent victims suffer just as mightily from his wrath.
Pros: A diverse cast of familiar characters
Cons: Chaotic level design, Cheap and unfulfilling difficulty, Stunted jumping mechanics, Poor camera, Replaying levels is grueling
Excerpt: The boys of South Park hate Gingers, and for a very good reason — they steal Xbox 360 hard drives. That's what South Park: Tenorman's Revenge is about. Scott Tenorman is Eric Cartman's half brother, the head Ginger, and a son of a b**ch. He's getting revenge on Cartman for killing his parents, tricking him into eating their bodies, and worst of all, embarrassing him in front of Radiohead. To do so, he steals Cartman's hard drive to his Xbox 360.
Excerpt: How much do you love South Park ? You certainly don’t need to be a super-fan of Comedy Central’s profanely hilarious animated series to enjoy this XBLA co-op platformer, but it helps... a lot. Drawing on 15 years of backstory — focusing mostly on Cartman’s ongoing feud with his nemesis and half-brother, Scott Tenorman — Tenorman’s Revenge is a romp for up to four players through backdrops inspired by the show’s most famous episodes, literally taking you to Hell and back.
Pros: + A deep dive into classic, + Fun, challenging gameplay for up to four players.
Cons: ? When will Cartman’s alter ego, The Coon, star in his own game?
Excerpt: South Park has been around for over 16 years now, and itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s still staying fresh and going strong. During all those years, one would think that a series this popular would spawn a game that is loved...
Pros: + Great fan service, + Funny and witty dialogue, + Huge levels, + Great co-op
Conclusion: Concept: Remind gamers of the worst aspects of licensed games
Graphics: The South Park boys look like the South Park boys, but the stages look terrible
Sound: Trey and Matt phone in VO work for some predictable and unfunny lines
Playability: Annoying enemy encounters, awful level design, and plenty more conspire to make playing the game an absolute chore
Entertainment: A genuinely awful game that will turn off even the biggest South Park fans
