South Park: The Game is the newly developed role playing game from the hilarious and parody-based television show South Park, both written and created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. This latest video game installment of the franchise is brought to you by Obsidian, renowned as being creators of such brilliant games as Fallout: New Vegas, amongst others. The game has been developed through access to the entire back catalogue and assets of the long running television show, making sure the game is as close to the series as possible.
The storyline sets you as the new kid in town, determined to make friends with the local kids; main characters Cartman, Kyle, and Kenny, amongst others. Your mobile phone provides the in-game menu, and a social networking site similar to facebook provides a record of all the friends you make.
The game is styled as a parody RPG, with character customisation classes covering Fighter, Mage, Thief, Cleric, and Jew (Paladin/Monk), displaying the same humour and long-running jokes from the program in the game itself. There are also factions included in this production, such as Hippies, Goths, Crab People, Gingers, and more. Each of these offers you the chance to either perform quests for them to increase your reputation, or battle with them and make yourself some brand new enemies.
Combat is you being part of a small party, with each member taking it in turn to make a move or attack. Your weaponry and armour are, quite possibly, the worst you could ever have in a game; but that's the fun. Weapons are specially designed to reflect what a regular kid could find or make with a dash of imagination. Think wooden swords, suction cup arrows, and others along those lines. Armour ranges from towel capes to oven mitt gloves, with everything inbetween. There are also regular items such as soda pop being used as magic potions, and coffee which when drank increases your speed in battle. Chinpokomon, the show's parody of Pokémon, make an appearance as collectibles, and there is also plenty of loot to be found and scavenged throughout the game.
Probably the most hilarious game ever to be produced by Obsidian, South Park: The Game offers enough gaming aspects and such close similarity to the television show itself, that it'll be hard for even the most die hard fans to find flaw in it. Defend your new town, home, and friends from an onslaught of various enemies and attacks, with a hefty dose of humour and fun. (Cat Emerson)

If you´re South Park fan, this is a "must have". You´ll meet all characters from serial and you´ll be able to interact with them. how awesome is that? If you know the series, you´ll know some things before they happen, but main story is something really new with cartman, jews, twists and everything .... Only minus I found was kinda difficult to learn how to use "spells" because tutorial for that isn´t really good. otherwise it was two days of fun.
