Very Good

A very enterprising game for South Park

The Stick of Truth is an exciting game for rpg and adult video lovers. There is copious violence and animated nudity which is right up most players' alley. Your fully customize-able character can choose how to upgrade stats from four classes. Those classes as well as decisions the player makes (in-game) affect playable outcomes in a moderately distinguished manner.

The only downfall in the game I could find was the frame rate sacrificed to make the characters and background HD. This was clearly seen if, while playing, your character runs for more than 5 seconds.

All-in-all a very good game, 8 out of 10, and I would definitely recommend this game to a fraternity buddy or my 15 year old nephew.

Excellent

South Park at its best, but thin RPG elements

This game is a must rent if you are a South Park fan. The South Park elements of this game are near perfect. That being said, as a RPG, this game is very limited. Customization is near non-existent, fights are repetitive (even the game says this), and ally and enemy skills and abilities are not diverse.

If I had issues with South Park's humor or if I was looking for a deep gameplay experience, I'd give this game a 5.

However, it's all about perspective. I love South Park, and this game's writing competes with the TV shows prime seasons 3 through 9. If you like South Park and can handle its sense of humor, play the game as if you're going along for a ride, to see the characters at their best. Don't fixate on the gameplay, otherwise you'll be disappointed.

Really Bad

Turn based combat should not be a thing.

I have no idea why anyone would tolerate anything that requires turn based combat. I'm a big South Park fan, but the gameplay here killed it for me.
