How we rate the games?
After becoming a big hit in the television series, South Park comes again with a humorous video game. We have been reviewing a lot of games lately and we have never seen a more funny video game so far. Beware though, adult content is laying ahead! The game is blood and gore since you are going to kill a lot of people and the game itself is totally based on RPG.
When you start playing the game, you are set to choose and customize your character. It won't be so easy since you will have a lot to choose from and bear in mind that you can also modify a lot of stuff later on in the game. When you first start, you are welcomed by your family and they totally think you should make new friends. The game itself has facebook integrated in it, so basically you add new friends and unlock perks. Interesting idea, but it is just a social network, not similar with facebook and I don't know why they clearly stated in the game that it is it. Anyway, when trying to get new friends, you will help a lot of people or kill others. Some might help you, some might waste your time, or even spam your profile wall!
You will meet a lot of people around South Park, but not just people, even aliens, nazis, animals and more. The story is also very funny but there is some bad content for kids with words or sexual moments, which might be disgusting for some. Either way, it is a must for those who love the television series. The graphics though were identical to what you see on the TV, no change at all, even the voices. The characters also moved in a funny way, or some talked in a weird way, like the famous level ten bard.
Another wonderful thing about this game is the customization of weapons, be it melee or ranged. You can choose which one you want and equip it. It depends on the level your character is, so you cannot wield a level 10 weapon if you are lower than that. You will have to gain more experience during your journey and successfully level up and gain a new ability for each level. There are also a lot of magical abilities, or even summoning certain characters. You can summon Jesus to aid you during your battles and use a machine guns to defeat enemies. Unfortunately, summons cannot be used against bosses since they clearly mention that they are afraid or don't want to get hurt.
The idea of the game is dirty, since after all, we see and hear so many dirty stuff, thus making it not a nice choice for kids. There are also other stuff like religious bad intentions in the game, making it even worse for those who have their own beliefs. If you do believe in aliens though, there is a part in the game where you go and meet them, but have to defeat. Disgusting sexual stuff for others are going to be part of the game. All in all, if you love South Park as a TV series, the game will also be great.
You will have to complete a lot of quests during your journey. When you rich some point in the game, you go to Canada with a passport. There you meet a lot of other people and the game graphics completely change. This was by far the biggest surprise in the game, not because other games don't implement this kind of graphics, but because it happened later in the game and there was a whole new map.
All in all South Park Stick of Truth is a great game for RPG lovers, TV series fans and those who love bad and dirty stuff. It is not recommended for young kids.
