A game capable of matching the South Park franchise's insanity
7.0    Gameplay
8.5    Story
8.0    Presentation
7.5    Lasting appeal

The Stick of Truth ranks as one of the best South Park titles to date. For the first time in a long while, developers have been able to blend strong gameplay and wickedly smart dialogue into one great game.
Fantastic storyline; Crazy South Park character cameos; Innovatively designed attacks
Button-prompted attacks lack responsiveness; Town of South Park a little difficult to navigate
The key to The Stick of Truth is its ability to perfectly merge a fantastically absurd storyline, solid gameplay and innovative add-ons without ever compromising the true essence of what makes South Park so brilliant. It allows the South Park universe to shine and supports it with great roleplay features.
