South Park: The Stick of Truth Is Fantastic

Obsidian Entertainment’s South Park: The Stick of Truth is one of those rare titles that not only captures the essences of the franchise it represents perfectly, but also presents gameplay mechanics that are fun and engaging. Obsidian has successfully created the interactive world of South Park, and in more ways than not, a world that feels more alive, more immersive, than most titles released today.

If you’re a fan of the series, prepare to be serviced like no other. Just about every house, every building, can be entered and explored, and these houses are accurately depicted down the smallest details. When you combine these incredible environmental elements with the perfectly depicted characters you get these moments where you sit back and honestly can’t pick out if you’re playing a game or watching the show. It is in these moments where the game excels the most, almost serving as an example of how to branch a franchise across multiple mediums.

Being twenty hours into the game, I honestly feel that I’ve only cracked the surface. If you’ve ever considered yourself a fan of the series, Stick of Truth is a must have that does not disappoint. Even if you aren’t, but enjoy turn based role playing games, there is enough depth in the combat and exploration to satisfy. Obsidian Entertainment South Park: The Stick of Truth is a fantastic piece of entertainment and one that is very much worth the wait. It is available now on Steam and PS3/360 for $59.99
