South Park: The Stick Of Truth – Review (PS3, 360)
3 October 2014
Excerpt: South Park has always been on the edge of controversy from the very first episode, “Cartman gets an anal probe”. So it probably didn’t come as a surprise to anyone when South Park : The Stick of Truth was finally ready for a release only to earn its own share of controversy.
Summary: Anyone who's anyone knows without a doubt that Cartman is amazing, Princess Kenny is the most beautiful maiden in the land and you can never ever trust a Jew. So I've been told.
Pros: South Park brought to life for fans, the disgusting jokes never seem to end, lots of equipment to choose from, very nice customization options, fairly easy combat system (with a few exceptions), great story, different classes and companions mean great opportunity for replay with different abilities.
Cons: Blocking can be very difficult, some of the enemies are too large for you to see button prompts, no warnings that there aren't enough points to level up all of your abilites, manuevering through the environments is unnecessarily tedious due to elaborate designs.
Summary: South Park: The Stick of Truth is must buy for fans of South Park. It might not be the longest RPG but it is fun and funny throughout. It's the closest you'll get to extra episodes of the TV show.
Conclusion: Truth be told, theoretically the combat system has a decent amount of depth, with multiple damage types, status effects, enemy stances that nullify certain types of attacks, shields you have to whittle off to get to an enemy's HP and armor that reduces the amount of damage dealt.
Summary: Obsidian have done what I had begun to think might be impossible. They've done a real justice to a show that quickly became one of America's best. Much like it's source material, there's equal parts playfulness and horror to " South Park: The Stick of Truth ", and it's that fine balance that makes...
Summary: won’t sway any non-South Park fans onto the series. Nor will it bring regular RPG fans in to check the game out. The game is a perfect tribute to the series and will have fans laughing at the references and jokes from beginning to end. If you’ve ever been a fan of the series, check this game out.
Excerpt: creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker brought to life one of the most hilariously offensive shows in television history. Throughout the course of its time on TV, it’s been one of the most consistently hilarious, relevant and absurd shows ever.
Pros: + The game South Park fans deserve., + Funniest video game of all time., + Looks and feels exactly like the show., + Canada. Just...Canada., + Accessible combat for those not familiar with turn-based combat.
Cons: - Lack of New Game+, - Not much replay value once you've done everything.
Excerpt: Back in 1998, the first trailers for South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut touted millions of dollars spent on cutting-edge technology just to bring Cartman to life to do his little German dance. South Park: The Stick of Truth feels like a game trying to take that joke to its ultimate conclusion.
Excerpt: In the seventeen years since the start of the immensely popular South Park TV series, there have been under a half dozen games based on the show, all catering directly to the fans with a multitude of references and in-jokes, but all ultimately rather underwhelming games if stood on their own.
