    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.

    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.

    Great Game for the most part

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
