17 years. That is how long South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have shocked everyone with their crude and rude adult cartoon South Park. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Ubisoft, South Park: The Stick of Truth has finally reached retail stores worldwide and is nothing short of hilarious (and a bit offensive).
Will South Park The Stick of Truth satisfy gamers everywhere or will it end up falling victim to the other numerous crappy titles that are based on TV shows and movies? Read our official South Park The Stick of Truth review to find out.
South Park The Stick of Truth is a game that is witty, creative, highly offensive, shockingly twisted, hilarious and unexpected at the same time. The story of the game places gamers in the “perilous battlefields” of a fourth-grade playground and a quest to become “cool”. You start off as the new guy in town and over your 14 hour journey, the game becomes one giant episode form the series. In no time at all you will be arming yourself with weapons of legend to defeat crabpeople, underpants gnomes, hippies, and other forces of evil….Oh yeah and you will be laughing the entire time.
South Park The Stick of Truth relies heavily on what has made the series so popular while poking fun at the JRPG genre. The games surprisingly comes together very well and is quit possibly one of the funniest games of all time. Written and voiced by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park: The Stick of Truth brings their unique brand of humor to video gaming. Make no mistake about it, THIS IS South Park so if you’re a fan of the show, you are in for a real treat.
The game plays like a “Paper Mario” type RPG and features a number of South Park regulars. Before setting out on your travels, you will have to pick one of four classes; Jew class, Fighter, Thief, and Mage. Nothing too tremendous sets each class apart as any class can carry any weapon. Each class does sport their own abilities, but if you want your mage to swing a giant sword, he can.
Graphically speaking, the game is very nice. It has no frills but looks amazing at the same time. It truly looks like a South Park cartoon but you get to actually play the thing and I applaud the development team for making it true to the series.
Overall The Stick of Truth comes off impressive, especially if you love the series. It was highly offensive and extremely obvious that Trey Parker and Matt Stone had direct and intimate involvement with the project. The game itself could act as a new season or a very long South Park movie. If you like South Park or need a good laugh, this one is for you.
Overall MVGN Score: 8.5 out of 10.
