Celebration of the 8th anniversary of the release of South Park: The Stick of Truth
It’s time for another Retro ad rendering Article that this time focuses on South Park: The Stick of Truth since it’s been eight years since its release date! This is the series where we go back in time to remember and celebrate some of the most significant moments in gaming. If you want more content like this, be sure to stop by Mandatory.com.
In this March 4th edition of Retro Ad Replay, we travel back eight years to when South Park: The Stick of Truth was first released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. That was March 4th, 2014. This RPG has the unique feature of looking exactly like the TV series. Combine that with awesome RPG mechanics and a story that doesn’t outlive its welcome greeting, and you have one of the best South Park games of all time.
GameRevolution gave South Park: The Stick of Truth a 9/10 in our review, praising the way it “plays just like a South Park movie,” the “irreverent humor, full of references, and hilarious banter too.” video games”. the “ridiculous story and hilarious dialogue”, the challenging combat and more.
Take a deep breath: SOUTH PARK: THE STICK OF TRUTH only runs for 13 hours. If that’s enough for you to tell the guys at Obsidian Entertainment to suck your balls, that’s understandable… but more than a little premature. Because viewed from another perspective, SOUTH PARK: STICK OF TRUTH is four South Park films, or roughly two full South Park seasons, glued together. Take any other branded game, including all previous SOUTH PARK titles (as they’ve all been rated a “C” or lower in old-school GR terms), and that last sentence would be disingenuous. But STICK OF TRUTH is without question not only the best SOUTH PARK game yet, but also one of the best game adaptations of the last ten years.
Packed with references like Paris Hilton in Mr. Slave’s Anus, STICK OF TRUTH plays exactly how the animation would if it were a PAPER MARIO RPG. Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker made sure that this title looks and feels like its Comedy Central original series, unlike the few SOUTH PARK video game predecessors. Characters jump across the screen like paper cutouts, adults overreact and are pretty clueless, there are lots of fart jokes and alien moos. That said, it’s almost impossible to write about the story without spoiling a joke or two in this review, but I’ll do my best. (If I slip, I’ll play my innocent woodland animal card. Hail Satan!)
