5.0 out of 5 stars UNCENSORED and CHEAPER THAN STEAM 11 Jun 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this here because it was cheaper than on Steam.
I was overjoyed to find that upon entering the code into Steam that not only was this the Uncensored version (unlike Steam's own version), but that it was the pre-order version and contained all the pre-order DLC!!!

Cheaper, Uncensored and containing the Pre-Order DLS, you cant do better than that, well done Amazon, you have just guaranteed that all future Steam purchases will only be made after checking here first.

5.0 out of 5 stars So so good. 12 Mar 2014
By James
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this on a whim - I've vaguely followed South Park over the years, and the reviews looked good, I thought I might enjoy it.

Playing it.

I have never in my entire life laughed so much playing a game.

Not a wry smile, not "a good chortle" - proper loud enough to wake your spouse laughing, with my last sup coming out of my nose.
First off, it looks and feels like an extremely extended episode of the TV show. Put aside every horrific tie-in you've ever seen. Honestly this is the first "thing spun off to a game" thing that takes the source and builds something even better upon it.
The game mechanic that's been added is what makes it - it's a well polished RPG (which would have been fine), then with a 15 hour (and counting) SP episode built around it.

The best thing however is just the world that's been created by the cross-over - It's the RPG a set of imaginative and bickering children would make.
Admittedly sweary, violent children with a healthy engagement with Nazi-zombie-cows and featuring prompts such as "pull down now to dodge your paternal gonads as they swing out of the battle backdrop" - but there's genuinely just something sweetly innocent at the core.
If I had to say why I like this game so much, I think it's just because we've all spent our childhoods playing games - but I've never seen anything that tried to reflect that before and succeeded.
I've never been invaded by China, defeated zombies, worked for a covert branch of the CIA, risen to the top of a city crime family - BUT I have "fired a stick" at a friend and descended into a heated conversation as to whether they should be dead or not.

Being something of a lapsed South Park fan I approached the Stick of Truth without too high hopes, but the reviews on amazon and gaming literature give big thumbs up, so as a reward for getting a particularly dull presentation finished I got myself this as a little treat.

As a new kid in South Park you'll give straight into the children playing wizards and elves which picks up right after the end of the Game of Thrones skit in Season 17. Two factions led by Cartman and Kyle --humans and elves respectively-- fight for the "Stick of Truth" with the infectious make-believe fun of childhood that makes South Park and the game so enjoyable and even charming. You choose a class (not much impact on the story or gameplay) then get taken under Cartman's wing for the tutorial, after which you're free to explore all of South Park, levelling up though combat, missions and with extra skills unlocked by meeting people and performing side quests for the residents of South Park. Utilising the environment to take out enemies before combat can help you win difficult fights, and the turn-based combat system is well thought out, and integrates well with the skill trees, perks and equipment buffs to make the whole game feel tight and coherent.

then you are either a fan of South Park. Or buying this for someone who is a fan of South Park.

So stop wasting your time reading this stupid review and buy it!

It's cheaper than almost anywhere else online and activates though steam, so you have a copy forever.

nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game 18 Aug 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fab game. Lost many hours to it. A lot of TV-based games feel like an inferior version of the show, but in this case it feels like an extended episode in its own right. The humour is pitch perfect, and like any South Park episode it is extremely offensive (especially the uncensored version - be aware, this is NOT for children despite the childish feel to it!)

I'm not a big 'games person' so I couldn't comment on whether the combat etc compares well to other games. All I know is I had a fantastic time playing it and got completely absorbed in it until the small hours. I would hugely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant 11 Aug 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Usually I'd have gotten this directly on Steam, but the Steam version in my country is censored so ...

The game itself is not just one of those licensed titles that seem to get released for every popular franchise nowadays, but a decent console / Japanese style RPG in its own right. On top of that it captures the essence of South Park perfectly. It's hard to imagine a better South Park game.

My only gripe is that the controls can't be remapped (wtf!) and that Normal should really be labelled Easy.

Incredible game, if you are a fan of the show then it wont disappoint you. It's just like playing an episode of the show, which is impressive when the game is around 12 hours long.
