    SP:TFBW is filled to the toilet brim (and over-filled at times) with fun and notable SP humor and characters. For players familiar with the TV show or previous game (TSoT), there's 25-30 hours of enjoyment found in lampooning super hero media saturation, and socio-political issues. Even with all the surface-based crassness, there are numerous touching moments amid all the toilet jokes that actually connect you deeper to the children and the plight of seeing our flawed world through they eyes of a 4th Grader. Overall, there's a lot of value (including possibilities of crossing the Canada Border Wall in an upcoming DLC) and I highly recommend picking it up for fans and non-fans of the series. However, if you're easily offended - or can't appreciate scathing satire that may challenge your beliefs or tolerance - then you might reconsider this purchase.

    A Must Play for Fans of the Show

    I've been a fan of South Park since college and a gamer for longer than that so when the Stick of Truth came out a couple of years ago, I was really looking forward to it despite some lackluster South Park licensed games in the past. That game was awesome. This one is better. Fractured But whole plays like a whole season of South Park with you as a character. It also improves on everything from the first game from a gameplay perspective. It is still a turn based RPG but now employs a tile system that factors in your character position and how many tiles they can move during their turn. There are also clever environmental puzzles and easter eggs. I can't recommend this game highly enough for fans of the show.

    I’m a retro gamer totally. I hate having to create accounts with every new game, or publisher. I like retro games because it’s plug and play, or plug, blow and play in the case of cartridges. But this game was available on demo so I said wtf, lets try it. I loved it! The Stick of Truth is included and all progress for those who have played it before DOES TRANSFER OVER. Think it it like Destiny & Destiny 2 where if you played the first one you’re ahead of the other people. You level up by using the toilet. What more would you expect from South Park!! The only 5 Star I’ve left for a video game released in 2017.

    The Fractured But Whole picks up where The Stick of Truth left off. While the structure of game play is quite similar, they've upgrade the mechanics to be a bit more robust. For example you can move characters during a battle, but this does add the nuance that offense characters block one another's attacks, take knock backs, or line up for offensive attacks. Some new characters show up but they're all from the show. Humor level is top notch. I would definitely recommend the gold edition as it includes a number of extras including a digital version of The Stick of Truth. This is a great buy with GCU.

    Bought this game not so much for the gameplay but because it is like you are playing in the show. Really liked The Stick of Truth so I pre-ordered this game. At first I didn't like the gameplay of the fighting because it was different then Stick of Truth but after a while you get use to it. Very funny with all the different stuff you have to do and characters you come across. If you are easily offended then don't buy this game they find a way to make fun of everyone. Also not a game for kids I have to kick my kids out of the room or play this late at night when they are in bed.

    Whether your a fan of the show or loved the 1st game TFBW continues the insanity w/ a continuation of your own character's personal journey to save South Park. A more tactical open turned based combat system a ton of customization options whether dressing up or mixing up powers from multiple classes for your coolest super hero aswell as a crafting system. If you pre ordered you get a pretty decent deal added DLC bunuses, gamer club discount, 10$ back and a coon Beanie for free, would of like a mysterion one but thats cool

    If you liked Stick of Truth, but didn't really like how simple the combat was. This game is for you! It feels very much like the first game only with more. Now if you hate RPGs, or just don't care about South Park. Do not waste your time. This was a labor of love and specially made for South Park fans who enjoy a good turn based strategy game. There are so many laugh out loud moments I can't even begin to list them all. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up! Gold Edition if you want the extra content coming later as DLCs.

    Good, but not as good as the first

    The game is good. No doubt about that. It's just not as good as the stick of truth. If you never played the first then this game would be perceived as great. The game looks better. The new combat mechanic is really good. The humor for the first one was seriously LoL. This one just has had me chuckle a lot. The side quests are okay. The game is worth a purchase if you're a huge fanatical fan. Otherwise I see this game getting price breaks fairly quickly. Wait a bit. If you can.
