Not for children! I say that in a non-negative way. It was fun, and hilarious at times if your kinda morbid. I enjoyed it though, true South Park. I loved the game play, the story was entertaining too.
As many of said, it is just like playing a longer, uncut South Park episode. Gameplay was surprisingly in-depth, even though it was a parody of other RPG genres, like the J-RPG. Only complaint I have is that once the 'big boss fight' is complete, there really is not anything else to do.
It is short, but honestly, adding more would have just bogged down the game.
Just finished playing this and I would keep it if I could. I have been a huge fan of South Park since the first season, and I have witnessed Trey Parker & Matt Stone's fascination and passion for video games in many episodes, so this game had a lot to live up to. As a SP fan, I was blown away! There are references and Easter eggs galore, and the characters and dialogue are depicted exactly as they are in the show; even playing the game feels like an extended episode that you get to participate in.
I have a beginner's level of experience with RPGs, most notably Paper Mario for GC. Compared to others in the genre, it is somewhat shorter. I found it much more playable, and because it is hilarious, it never got repetitive - a problem I often find in RPGs. I find the humor in RPGs to be a flavor that is probably popular in Japan and resonates with people who watch anime. This game is actually funny to people who aren't nerds as well. I found myself literally laughing out loud at many points throughout the game.
In true SP tradition, they push the envelope; though I won't labor on that point because if you want to read about the controversies this game has caused, its been written about elsewhere.
The downsides to this game are a) I kept collecting "junk" instead of selling it thinking that it served some purpose; it doesn't, b) there are some collectibles you can only get during certain sequences, meaning once you beat the game and want to find all the stuff you missed there are some you can't get to again, c) there are f-art "spells"you learn, and the most frustrating part of the game was the sequences where you are trained to learn them - particularly Nagasaki and the Silent Squeaker - and then implementing them in places to progress in the plot.
Despite these shortcomings, I felt this game deserved a 10, and is better than all of the Simpsons games (which I also love) combined! A home run and a half; there isn't enough room to mention everything I loved!
