South Park: The Stick of Truth

When this game was first announced, I was super excited for it. A turn-based strategy game that is based on one of my favorite shows, I couldn’t wait. Well, wait I did as South Park: The Stick of Truth, was delayed numerous times. It was first delayed when the original publisher THQ was shut down. Shortly thereafter Ubisoft acquired the rights to SP:SOT. It was due for release in 2013 but when the THQ madness happened and Ubisoft took over, it seemed that they wanted to take a look at some things.

A big part of the game is based on a series of episodes in the actual show. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the show, overlooked the whole gaming project. They wrote the script, provided the voices and made sure it was done the way they wanted it. It is a very obscene game and with the release of it, it had got some of its scenes banned/censored in Australia and Europe.

CONCEPT

The concept is very simple in this game. You are the “new kid” and you have just moved to South Park. You become friends with the kids in the town and engage in a LARPing game. You are trying to retrieve the Stick of Truth to return the Kingdom back to normal.

GRAPHICS 

The graphics aren’t really too fancy. It’s just like the show and could probably be ran on anything.

SOUND

The sound is perfect and just like the television show, the profanity isn’t censored.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Since I really enjoy the show, South Park: The Stick of Truth really hit home with me. I felt the game was well put together and there is some very offensive parts in it. So if you get offended easily, then this game isn’t for you.

  • Fits well with the show
  • Amazing Campaign
  • Really enjoyable turn-based RPG

Cons

  • Very Offensive
  • More vulgar than the show

Summary

I really suggest getting this game. It may seem very short but it really isn’t. I recommend not blowing through the main story of the game. Make sure to complete the side quests, as you unlock different armors and powers. It adds at least 8-12 hours of gameplay to South Park: The Stick of Truth.
