I have to be honest with you. I know nothing about South Park. Still, the four hours I had time to play were so fun that I clearly intend to complete the game as soon as I can. South Park: The Stick of Truth is incredibly faithful to the TV show, but it doesn't forget to be a video game. Take a look at all our HQ videos from the PC version and tell us what you think. Note: On PC framerate is locked at 30 fps, which makes sense considering how the series is animated.
As a role playing game, South Park: The Stick of Truth does a great job, although RPG fans will probably think 12 to 15 hours to complete is a bit short for the genre. Still, for a South Park episode, you have to admit it's a pretty long ride to experience. Gameplay mechanics are solid, humor is "South Parkish" (which basically means you'll either love it or hate its guts) and in the end it's a really awesome game. Sure, loading screens could have been less frequent (they happen every time you enter a building, even on PC, and it gets old quite fast), but other than that it looks and sounds just like it should. Obsidian did the best of job, which can't have been easy with the bankrupt of THQ about a year ago. Thankfully, Ubisoft was there to keep the ship afloat and I think fans will be grateful. As a non fan of the show, I really enjoyed my time with the game, the only problem I had with it was that it made me realise I really should have watched the show all these years. I can't help but regret not being able to get all the tongue-and-cheeks references, but then again, it won't prevent me from playing. Yes indeed, that's how good the game is.
But there's just no explanation for: "At some point soon, we better get busy making babies." This is simply just really terrible writing. (5 Hours ago)

@Sdarts: I know, it's too much. I think I'm starting to understand why some of key people at Bioware left. They saw a shitstorm comin and they jumped ship. (6 Hours ago)
ME:A is a disgrace and disrespect to the ME franchise and everyone that worked on the first 3 games, and everyone that was/is a ME fan. (6 Hours ago)
But the really, truly worst part is the writing and dialogue. I'm no writer, not even an aspiring to be one, and I'm very confident I wouldn't write this badly. (6 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I watched it a 2nd time, Jesus Fuck! What happened to BioWare? And most important, what the fuck happened with QA in gaming? I swear QA is the least desirable job in the gaming industry (6 Hours ago)
