Even a brief exchange with a bank teller will likely prompt a wry smile in long time fans of the show. It may be damning with faint praise to call South Park: The Stick Of Truth the best South Park game ever made, but that doesn’t make it any less true.

Nazi foetuses, alien anal probing and sex toys in abundance. Can you really say that you expected anything more? South Park: The Stick of Truth is as much an entire series of South Park episodes as it is a video game. Like all episodes, a relatively...

After a number of licensed titles that ranged from mediocre to outright terrible, a much better "South Park" game has arrived. "Stick of Truth" combines all the inappropriate humor fans have come to expect from the series with a simplified RPG play...

In gameplay terms it may be soon forgotten, but there's unlikely to be a funnier - or filthier - game any time soon.

Everybody else will be in stitches from some great gags and deep references that reward devotees of the classic show. The maps could have been larger and pacing improved, but this is another great accomplishment by Obsidian and the first game to do the classic animated series justice.

It can wear thin over the length of the game, but The Stick of Truth is laugh-out-loud funny. It’s that rare game adaptation that gets to the original’s obnoxious, irreverent heart.

By GameInformer on 85

It’s one of the most faithful adaptations of a license I’ve seen, and it ranks among the best comedic games ever released.

There’s much, much more here for series fans than the uninitiated, but it’s a light but good quality role-playing game in its own right. It is, in a way, Season 18 all by itself. It is funny, shocking, self-effacing, and pretty much everything I could ask for from a South Park game -- even if it’s mostly a one-and-done experience.

Above all, it’s just a wonderful piece of entertainment. It’s surprising, surreal, packed with jokes, and rarely frustrating. I didn’t get bored once across the 17 hours it took me to finish the story and most of the sidequests, and it kept me laughing consistently until the credits. If that isn’t worth 90%, I don’t know what is.

In some ways this game is to the RPG genre what the animated series is to celebrity voice overs: a comic impersonation. As far as the comedy goes, however, Stick of Truth is fuckin-A dude.

Other games treated the world Matt Stone and Trey Parker have crystallized over the past two decades as a prison they have to escape from. The Stick of Truth happily confines itself to that world, and manages to build a comfortable, hilarious home of its own.

By Forbes on 90

The Stick of Truth is funny (I can’t remember any game with so many laugh-out-loud moments), outrageous (continually reaching new heights of the gross and offensive) and awfully smart. It’s the video game fans always wanted, and a hell of a lot of fun to play.

There's something deliciously perverse in South Park: The Stick of Truth ‘s design as a traditional turn-based RPG. It might be the fact that the edgy Comedy Central cartoon series created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone is known for pushing the envelope...

When a game has a long, protracted and seemingly tortured development, it's understandable when if it finally comes out if it doesn't live up to the years of hype. What usually happens is that the publisher finally goes "get it out in two months or...
