Excellent game play, enjoyed all aspects of the game, but the main storyline and misc stuff doesn't take too long to achieve, but with the trophies available, I'm sure one could find many more hours of entertainment. Overall, a great game, hillarious, and screams South Park, all the way.

As an RPG, "South Park: The Stick of Truth" is fairly short-lived. The story campaign doesn't take long to complete, and the side quests aren't difficult at all. It plays well; rather like a game from the Mario RPG series, with its action commands and easily navigable overworld. It's fun and satisfying to play, but it probably won't last you more than a few days.
As a love letter to the fans of "South Park", however, "The Stick of Truth" delivers in spades. It's positively filled to the brim with fan service in the form of numerous recognizable collectibles (everything from Chinpokomon toys to Purity Rings to Okama Gamespheres), constant references, and appearances by just about any character you could think of. The game's creators truly mined all 17 seasons of the show (plus the 1999 movie) to construct a "South Park" extravaganza that no fan should miss.
