So what is this game? Well, it’s an open world adventure in the world of South Park. You’ll travel the town visiting townsfolk and making new friends while completing quests. You play the role of a new kid with no voice which is apparent in much of the dialogue you’ll encounter. You join Stan and the crew as part of a fellowship clan protecting the Stick of Truth. Unfortunately, Kupas Keep comes under attack and the stick vanishes so it’s up to you and the gang to retrieve the stick. Much like Oblivion, you’ll rise from the ashes as the hero who saves South Park. Well with the help of your friends as well.
This game gives you all the options of an open world game including the ability to take along a party member to help fend off enemies. The variety of enemies you will encounter is immense and quite humorous at times. You’ll fight everything from rats to a Mongolian tribe to Gingers. As you gain XP from defeating the enemies you’ll be able to level up and unlock new abilities as well as equip more powerful weapons and gear. Be sure to keep an eye on your inventory making sure you have the latest and greatest equipment equipped.
There is so much to talk about with this game and you will definitely get your money’s worth. For South Park fans it’s a no brainer must buy, but I have to say for those of you that love open world RPG’s then you will want to consider this title as well. The combat system is completely turn-based as each enemy takes their turn relegating damage or perhaps bolstering their defenses and teammates. You’ll have a few different classes to choose from right from the start of the game as you create your character: Fighter, Mage, Thief and Jew. Each has their specific abilities and talents that will help you throughout the story.
