South Park: The Stick of Truth was finally released this week and it was worth the wait. This role play style game is loaded with collectibles and tons of easter eggs from South Park episodes.
You join the world of South Park as Douchebag, the new kid in town. Throughout the game your goal is to gain friends and complete the tasks that are given to you by the myriad of characters you run into along the way. Explore the town of South Park and gain abilities, unlock new areas, bosses, etc.
This game is HIGHLY addictive and HIGHLY crude. Most fights begin some manner of cursing. Fighting style is turn based, which I usually don't like, but do like in this game as it requires some strategic moves to defeat certain bosses.
From helping Hankie the Christmas Poo find his lost children to fighting Nazi zombies, this game does a great job of capturing the world of South Park and making you feel immersed in it's many hidden treasures.
Speaking of hidden treasures, there are about a billion. One of my favorite parts of the game is finding new objects, because they are so ridiculous. You sell the objects to get money to buy weapons, gear and other helpful consumables. Open a closet and you just might find something like this:
Cartman's closet is just the tip of the iceberg. This game has so many references to South Park episodes that you may find yourself playing the game over and over again to try and spot them all.
Back to the crazy objects you find. Here are some of my favorites so far:
The Chinpokomon - there are 30 throughout South Park that you have to find and every time you do find one, they play the little jingle from season 3 episode 10.
Adult Toys like The Backdoor Tickler, Five-Fingered Fister, Rectal Photography Kit
Biggest Douche Award
Stupid Spoiled Whore Doll
Book - The Poop That Took a Pee
Turd Sandwich Ballot
So many more, but I hate to ruin all the fun for you. Get out and get it today! This game is one you need to own and one you'll want to play more than once. It's available on PC, PS3 and XBox 360.
