Finally after countless delays, South Park: The Stick of Truth is available to the general public. It is important to point out that though this is not the first South Park game, this is the only game that show-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone helped develop. The creators wrote the script, voiced it, and helped develop the RPG gameplay. Now, the big question that everyone is asking: is this any good? While The Stick of Truth has the trademark humor of the show, it is marred by repetitive gameplay and graphical glitches. However, this game is a must own for all South Park enthusiasts, mainly because the nostalgia alone is worth the $60 price tag.
First and foremost, it is important to reiterate that South Park: The Stick of Truth is a role playing game. Every aspect of a player’s character is customizable; yes, the character creator at the beginning is quite simple, but once the gameplay starts the character’s clothes become vital to combat: and this is where the game works. It does not coddle the player with explanations, which helps and hinders the initial play-through. For instance, the combat becomes more rewarding with my personal layout. The player’s necessity to equip the right weapons and armor are almost as important as the necessity to modify said weapons and armor: these strap-ons boost anything from health to attack numbers. However, certain aspects of the game need more instructions, because the players are not aware these features unless they randomly find them.
