I absolutely loved this game, and I’m not saying that because I’m a huge South Park fan. This was a surprisingly well-articulated RPG game.
The thing about this game, though, is that it would probably be not as enjoyable for someone who hasn’t watched South Park. There’s a lot of past references to various episodes, and the characters and locations are hard to recognize and relate to if you haven’t watched the show. Basically, the entire game is a gigantic inside jokes to fans of the show.
There were a few technical glitches but they weren’t all that bothersome, and to be honest I sort of expected that to happen. Sometimes the audio, both background and dialogue, would mesh together. Two characters would accidentally speak at the same time, and music would accidentally play at the same time too. The only way to fix it is to exit your game, and load it again.
Some of the gameplay was hard to follow and the instructions were unclear, more specifically in the fart/mana tutorials. The controls probably could’ve been a little easier too.
Those were my only gripes about the game, however. Everything else, I absolutely loved. Aside from a few hiccups I loved the gameplay. It was fun and the abilities were hilarious. The story was good; a lot of people said it was short but I thought it was just right. It didn’t seem too short or too long. The music was surprisingly really good too; it’s something you would hear from a Lord of the Rings movie or an episode of Game of Thrones |: The map was pretty big too, and there were a lot of places to explore. There were plenty of sidequests to keep you busy in case you wanted to take a break from the main storyline,
Also, you probably won’t enjoy the game if you’re easily offended :| South Park’s humour is supposed to be taken with a grain of salt. As ridiculous as it looks, there’s always a deeper meaning behind it and that’s one of the many things I love about the show.
All in all, I loved this game. I’m definitely going to play it again. I haven’t been motivated to get a platinum trophy in a game before…at least not until now. I’m going to play as a Jew this second time around, and I’m going to side with Cartman |: That’s another good thing about the game: there’s replay value to it.
The group asks the new kid what to play next, and he speaks for the first time.
New Kid: Screw you guys, I’m going home.
And right before it cuts to the end credits (which actually plays exactly like the show’s credits for a little bit), Al Gore…or ManBearPig peeks out from a tree in the background.
The Stick of Truth has caused too much trouble for the group, so they decided to get rid of it forever.
Once the new kid farts on Kenny’s balls, a flashing white light envelops all of South Park and everyone who was infected by the Nazi zombie virus becomes cured. South Park is saved.
Kenny keeps getting revived after you kill him, and the group is beginning to lose hope (it’s a running gag in the show that Kenny dies all the time but somehow shows up alive the next episode as if nothing happened).
Cartman then realizes that there’s only one way to kill Kenny, and that’s to break the Gentleman’s Code: the new kid has to fart on Kenny’s balls.
Kenny is the last boss. After defeating him once, he drinks the green goo and turns into a Nazi zombie.
You have to kill him a certain number of times in order to truly defeat him. It can really wear you down.
Kyle: Just one thing, Morgan Freeman. How come every time something convoluted needs explaining, you show up?
Morgan Freeman: Because every time I show up and explain something, I earn a freckle.
The Big Bad Government Guy takes the Stick of Truth, because he actually thinks that it’ll give him the power to control the universe (he somehow hasn’t figured out that the kids are just playing a game).
Kenny then steals the stick from him, and Morgan Freeman pops out of nowhere to explain why.
Princess Kenny is half-orc - her parents were an elven queen and an orc named Dandar, who was the first to possess the stick of truth. This was before the war, when humans and elves lived together in peace in the forest.
The elven queen and orc had a girl, Princess Kenny, and both of her parents were killed in cold blood after the stick. Ever since then, Princess Kenny has been plotting to get it back because she is the true heir of the Stick of Truth.
The new kid’s true identity is finally revealed by the Big Bad Government Guy.
The new kid’s real name was Dovakhin (possibly a reference to the Elder Scrolls games), and he was sought after by the government because of his ability to swiftly make friends on social networking sites. Apparently, before he turned 5 years old he had 3.2 billion friends on Facebook.
After Chef is defeated, Clyde is defeated as well and the group “promotes” the new kid to King Douchebag.
