Perfect

South Park Unleashed

If you love South Park then you have to try this game. It is everything I expected from South Park and more. I only wished the game had been longer.

i recomend this to all fans of rpgs especially if you like games like the paper mario series also to anyone thats a fan of the show the gameplay is fun but not overly complex i couldnt help wanting to do all the sidequests & gather all the collectibles i possibly can i never had a dull moment throughout my entire playthrough whether i was killing zombie fetus or laughing at one of the many hilarious jokes or references & theres a reference nearly anywhere u look this is coming from someone who has seen every episode more than once but i enjoyed it for more reasons than just being a fan of the show the only complaints id have would be the the slight lack of depth in leveling your character and that it takes 12 to 15 hrs to beat it which is a bit short for a rpg but those are minor nitpicks at worst in what id call the best t v/video game tie in ever made even if youve never seen the show id still recomend it to anyone that appreciates a well developed game im hoping 4 some story dlc in the near future

Very Good

Wonderful Yet Problematic, Just Like The Show

First and foremost, this is an RPG, and not a bad one at that. You start off by creating your character with a decent amount of customization options. You play as the new kid, whose family just decided to move to South Park, Colorado to get you away from a dark past. Immediately, the jokes start pouring in, taking stabs at video games themselves in the ironically absurd way that only South Park can (i.e. your character never speaks).
The first thing you notice is that this game is stunning. While many strive for the “real-life” appearance of games, this game does exactly what it is meant to do: allow you to be a part of the show. With the simplistic art style of the show, the developers were able to make you sometimes forget that there’s a controller in your hands and you are not tuned in to Comedy Central. The voices and sounds are all there as well, and the countless references to the series bring fans of the show to unprecedented levels of nostalgia.
Without the constraint of television, Matt Stone and Trey Parker were able to go to distances that truly are too disturbing for TV. However, that fact only strengthens the positive qualities of this game. With nothing held back, the game can take you to extremely mature moments of pure hysteria.
Overall, fans of the series should really consider adding this game to their repertoire, but if you are looking for something a little more solid, rent it. This game sets out to do everything it was meant to and provide more than decent gameplay, fill fans with a sense of nostalgia, and make us squirt anything out our nose that we attempt to drink while playing. The strong points lie on the side of what makes South Park, well, South Park, but its weaknesses come from the fact that it’s a very glitchy game. In short, if you get a chance to play through it while a bunch of your friends watch, it could make for a really fun game for those watching. But some gameplay mechanics will leave you frustrated and wanting more "RP
