    Matt Stone and Trey Parker hit another Home run.

    Started with the “Stick Of Truth” and a 3 part episodes on South Park that waged war among the video game consoles, separating the kids into two kingdoms. Winter was indeed coming and the new kid had to choose what side he was on meanwhile learning how to fight and survive with the help of southpark. You have a Back stabbing, walking through a rose garden, princess Kenny. It was just like watching a long a-$$ episode of Southpark. You played the new kid that kept the story going. Made you really feel like part of that universe. After the kids the help of the new kid saved the world and banished the stick of truth....they all got tired of playing medieval fantasy action so they changed over to super heroes. Then another 2-3 episode on southpark lead to a “Fractured But Whole”. After they started a civil war among them breaking the Two factions fighting for a spot on Net-flix. If they would decide what’s best for the franchise and push forward they would be millionaires. But inner squabbling and back stabbing means that the new guy has to choose sides again. This time while learning his inner super power. Will the kids succeed? The next game if they decide to make another in the series is better than the first and also comes included in the package as a bonus for those who missed it or want to relive the first story free on specific packaging. But regardless of that, no spoilers because I haven’t finished yet. Buy South Park: The Fractured But Whole. You won’t regret it. Rated M for mature.

    Great follow up to "The Stick 'of Truth"!

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole once again completely succeeds in immersing the player in the hilarious world of the eponymous TV show, this time focusing on the kids establishing Cartman's superhero movie franchise. Out are the capes and staffs and in are the masks and colourful tights. You once again play as the New Kid who gets sucked in the thick of it: fighting sixth graders, farting on strippers and gathering allies. All characters feel authentic and the jokes are on point. As an actual video game, The Fractured But Whole improves greatly upon its predecessor. Combat is now grid-based and feels more strategic; costumes are more varied and more numerous and bonuses from artifacts are very noticeable. The story is perhaps the one aspect that isn't necessarily better than that in Stick of Truth. While its better paced and more coherent, it lacks some ridiculousness and scale of the last, making it ultimately more forgettable. As a verdict, the game is a must-buy if you loved the first game or are a fan of the show who for some reason didn't get the chance to play Stick of Truth. This game will satisfy you if you thought the TV show was a bit lacking lately, even if it draws some of its humour from some of the later seasons' inside jokes.

    I've watched a bit of south park, and i played and completed the previous game (The Stick of Truth). I think they improved on almost everything in the previous game. The soundtrack got a noticeable boost and especially during some of the boss battles i was really getting into it. The combat is akin to grid based Tactical RPG's (Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea) and each class that you can play as has 3 main moves and one ultimate... eventually you can mix and match which is a nice touch. The graphics are clean for what the game is going for, the voice acting is pure south park genius. My only problem with the game was the story. I figured it would be ridiculous, which i have no problem with... but near the end (with more GREAT battles) i was like... that's pretty stupid. Even for South Park. In no way should this stop you from playing this game. I adored the combat, and it makes me miss JRPG's just like the first one did. Not to mention the amount of times i died laughing... maybe i'm kenny.

    A sequal with better mechanics but less creativity

    The sequal to stick of truth checks all of the sequal boxes. Better more refined game play mechanics. But suffers from stymied creativity. In my opinion stick of truth was overflowing with reverance for the South Park show. Every inch of the screen was filled with references to episodes, both big and small. However, the stick of truth also had some fairly run of the mill combat mechanics. And the loot system was overly complex. Fractured but whole on the other hand has has less dense lore and references, but improves in every way, with respect to combat and rpg mechanics. That being said this is still a fantastic game which deserves 4.5 stars. While the references are fewer than the preceding game, they are still plentiful and amazing. If you're a fan of the show, it's a must buy. If you're a fan of RPGs, this game will still scratch that itch (as well as your funny bone).

    The graphics are poor. exactly like the show. This game is juvenile and sometimes offensive and always hilarious. Just like the show. I did have some control issues at times. When you go one way the game transitions and you end up going in the opposite direction especially when you go downstairs. Also as in many games the pop up messages during the game are small on the screen and hard to read. Now I am old and my eyesight is not what it used to be but still I have a 4K 55" television and have to change my seating position much closer to read them. I have not gotten very far but have enjoyed it so far. It even comes with a digital copy of the previous game The Stick of Truth. I got it on sale for $19.99! If you are a fan of the show you MUST get this game. You get two games. If you get offended easily and lack a sense of humor stay away.

    The sequel to one of the best comedy games ever continues the raunchy, crazy humor from the TV series. Picking up after season 20 of the show, continuing from the previous game, you are The New Kid, still king after your victory in The Stick of Truth. However, The Coon (Cartman) discovers a massive crime wave of missing cats, and cuts your reign short to shift to the superhero genre. You must now embark on a quest to fight crime with your superhuman farts, encountering Member Berries, PC Principal, Crab People, and choosing a side in the kids’ “Civil War”. The humor and writing is top notch and the graphics perfecting capture the essence of the show. The only flaw with the game is you must be a fan of the show, and have watched previous seasons to get a lot of the jokes. Other than that, it’s a perfect game from one of the best TV series in history.

    This game is great and is a really well done sequel to the stick of truth. If your a fan of South Park you will most likely love the experience they've created. The battle system has been expanded / evolved from the first game. The turn based combat is a lot of fun and the characters all have hilarious banter and super power capabilities. I don't think it had quite as many crazy moments as the first game but there are still plenty of quintessential South Park moments to be had. Overall I highly recommend it for being a great mash-up of everything South Park fans love and just being a fun time to memba.

    This game takes off immediately after the events of Stick of Truth, in fact it'll be noticed in the opening moments of the game. The characters decide to go the super hero route this time, forming a franchise called "Coon and Friends", in search of their main Netflix TV series. Fractured builds upon the elements of the first game, and the big improvement is in its battle system, which now feels like a Fire Emblem game instead of Paper Mario. Granted Ubisoft decided to develop this title in house (instead of using Obsidian like the first game), but this game is incredibly polished. All of the characters and jokes are present, particularly characters in the later series. If you love South Park, you should do yourself a favor and play this game. Then again you probably already have by now.

    If you are a fan of South Park: The Stick of Truth this game definitely compares well to that. The combat system has been changed to a grid based system which incorporates movement and character placement into battles. This change allows for combat to be a little more complex even though it sometimes can be a little on the easy side. The writing is 100% South Park. This is basically a 10 hour long episode, which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you feel about South Park's humor. I found the humor a little slow and somewhat lazy at the beginning but after a couple of hours it picks up and moves along pretty well. There were more chuckles than groans by the end of the game.

    Great Follow Up To The Stick of Truth

    After playing The Stick of Truth I'm not sure anything can come close to the absurdity of that game. While this game does improve on some elements it does not come close to crude humor that TSOT does. Basically The Fractured but Whole follows the same structure old style turn based RPG fashion that was in TSOT but gives you more choices in how you attack. Game's story line follows the kids role playing superheros fashioned after some of the more famous episodes from South Park in particular the Coon and friends storyline. Basically if you played and liked TSOT then you know what you are getting into with this one. DEFINITELY NOT FOR KIDS!!!

    This game is much like the first, in that it's full of crude but hilarious south park comedy and story, with a full cast of just about everyone you'de expect. Collect costume pieces and character customizing stuff like make up and hair, craft power ups and goods to help you succeed. The combat is pretty quick to pick up and no real tutorial necessary(although the game gives you a quick one anyways). The game is even nice enough to let you unlock multiple classes so you don't feel pigeon holed into any single class. All and all, if you liked the stick of truth, you'll probably like this one even better!

    I had so much fun playing this game. It plays like a whole season of South Park and is just fun enough to stay interesting in between story missions. The game itself is not especially difficult; it's really about experiencing the story. I've watched South Park for a while and I still love the show, but if you're not into South Park or only have a passing interest then this game probably isn't for you. That probably goes without saying, but it's worth mentioning because the gameplay itself is just okay. The story and the amount of things to do more than makes up for it though.

    I've been a fan of South Park for a very long time. I love the political jabs and how the show basically holds a mirror up to society. South Park The Fractured But Whole is brilliant! You will feel like you're watching an episode that you interact with. I'll let you discover the adventure that awaits you, the player, but I can say that the game mechanics are much improved over The Stick Of Truth game from 2014. There are so many references to the fans of the show and there's plenty of jokes that take aim at the geek culture that I love so much.

    I loved the first south park game and if I rated that one I would have given it a 5. This one gets a 4 because while the graphics are way better, and the combat is better, I hate the toilet mini game that is encouraged, and I hate the fact that you are no longer able to run, like in the first game. To world is so much larger and you have to walk everywhere. Going back and forth sucks, without the ability to run. Other than that major annoyance the game is fun. Also be warned, there is a lot of profanity in this game, more than in the first one!

    If you love offensive politically incorrect humor, the Stick of Truth, and the show then you will love this game! Much like the last game this is a 20 hour episode of South Park, this time taking on the behemoth comic book movie industry and current socio political atmosphere. The graphics are phenomenal and look identical to the show. The combat system was changed up for a simplified X-COM or Mario-Rabbids style of combat. It's very effective and rewarding. Over all if you loved the last one or the show you will love this game!

    This game came with The Stick of Truth, so I played that first. I thoroughly enjoyed Stick of Truth, but then when I played The Fractured But Whole, it just didn't seem as fun or as funny as Stick of Truth. They toned down a lot of the bawdiness, which is a shame. I actually lost interest in the Fractured But Whole, and only played it for a few days. Eventually I'll pick it up again, but I don't really feel compelled to do so. My advice is that the game isn't worth full price. If you can grab it for like 30 bucks, then go for it.

    The game is fun and fans of the show will love it. From a gameplay standpoint, it does turn based battle fine but nothing spectacular. It also becomes a bit clunky later on when you have to sift through odd menus to equip a bunch of random things. I also dislike the map and the way it is laid out. It's just very odd to me to travel through a 2D map and have to find the right spot on the screen to progress further. It's the one thing that made the last game and makes this one frustrating.

    RPG fans who are also fans of South Park will truly enjoy this entertaining adventure. However, those who are general fans of turned-based RPGs and appreciate the style of humor South Park brings to the table will also enjoy this game. For those that have played a Stick of Truth, this game is an improvement, but does not change much since a Stick of Truth was a solid foundation. I highly recommend this game to anyone who is a South Park fan or is in need of a humorous and sometimes crude adventure.

    I am having so much fun with this game. I haven't even been focused on the main story. It is fun just to run around looking in people's houses and seeing what items you can find. The game play is very similar to the stick of truth, but looks so much better with the Xbox one than the 360. It's a nice bit that they start the game continuing the first episode of the season in ways. If you enjoyed the stick of truth or are just a fan of the franchise, then you should really like this game.

    You don't need to be a hardcore fan of the show to enjoy this or Stick of Truth; I'm a casual watcher at best, yet I absolutely love the games! Combat in this one is definitely improved over its predecessor, I really liked the changeover to superheroes and the recurring digs at DC and Marvel! The story runs out of steam a bit as it gets close to the end, but I enjoyed the game all the way through nonetheless.
