South Park: The Stick of Truth Xbox 360 Review
Playing South Park: The Stick of Truth, requires quite a bit of knowledge of the show to get every little inside joke, but it's not necessary. This is South Parks Arkham Asylum, it is the redemption of every terrible game that came from the franchise prior. It is amazingly in depth, incredibly funny, and sometimes even over the top disgusting. But you will have a smile on your face for the entire adventure. The graphics are on par with the show, it looks, feels, and sounds exactly like South Park should and that is awesome. It's amazing how relevant everything in the game is, and that you never become tired of the story ark or interacting with the residents of South Park, after over 10 hours of game time.
The game plays like any traditional RPG, you gain levels by completing tasks and winning in battle, you can unlock fast travel stations, buy and sell your equipment, and the game even has a catagory in your inventory for junk to make selling it off easier. Side Quests are rewarding and interesting as the NPC's who give them to you. Gaining friends on Facebook offers up perks, the more friends, the more perks you will unlock, and you can find and buy upgrades for your armor and weapons. The game is extremely well rounded in this respect, the world is carefully crafted, and the rewards feel like carry a lot of weight in the battles ahead.
