Alternate Versions

Scenes involving anal probing and abortions were censored in the Australian and EMFA versions of the game. Matt Stone and Trey Parker got around this by inserting an image of a crying koala and Michelangelo's David doing a facepalm, respectively, and a text inter-title "apologizing" for the censorship and describing what was happening in the scene while leaving the audio intact.

Epic Adventure
30 August 2016 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

I'm a fan of the TV show "South Park" it's one of my favorite TV shows of all time, this game was just a dream come true. Not only is it one of the best licensed games but it's to me one of those fresh examples showing you can still do more with the RPG genre which is part of what makes the game one of my personal favorite RPG's and video games of all time because this game not just captured the spirit of the TV show perfectly to a tee but most importantly the game is actually fun.

The graphics are great as it's basically just the regular animation like in the original TV show. The game play is great as it pretty much the typical standard mechanics and elements of turn based action as well as any RPG, which isn't anything new but it's everything done right. But to me what really made the game stand out is really in it's story line, humor, and execution which makes the game strong.

This game just like the TV show is just hilarious, the dialog and visual jokes are just great. It's sort of the main reason why I played the game which is the same reason I watch the show for the laughs. There really aren't that many RPG's I can think of with humorous elements except for "Maniac Mancion" and the underrated NES game "Nightshade". OK, those are more point and click games but they had RPG elements which sorta count. But anyway I just loved hearing the dialog along with the actual voice actors from the show just say the lines, they are just deliciously crude and absurd.

I really love how the game parodies and homages certain clichés and elements in the RPG genre. One favorite scene of mine is when you go to Canada and it's an 8 bit over world which is awesome and hilarious as it's an homage to "Final Fantasy" and the "Dragon Warrior" games on the NES.

Or even part of the story line in a way is an homage to the SNES game "Earthbound" just like in that game you have to deal with aliens in your hometown and the protagonists are kids. And like in that game you have a few non cliché weapons and methods. For weapons you have a medical crutch, vibrator, basketball, dodge ball, and any other everyday items along the way. You have an ability option which is the branch for the super moves which are great like putting on a football helmet and charging at ramming speed toward an opponent. And of course farting is the magic powers, yeah I'm not kidding who'd of ever though farting could actually be a tool of great use.

I really loved having some of the essential characters act as party members. Each of them are uniquely playable and have strengths and weaknesses. I love using Stan since he's one of the strongest and he gets to weld the atlantian sword from the film "Conan the Barbarian". However I also loved playing as Butters, the highlight of him is becoming Professor Chaos which is just awesome and with him he just has a vast number of powers that provide strong offense and defense depending on when and where you stop the roulette wheel.

However what I also love about the story line is in a way it's somewhat of a love letter to both the RPG and fantasy genre. It's simply about kids playing pretend fantasy to the extreme level literally. But that's what most RPG games really are their really games where you use your imagination; someone reads off on a book on what's happening, you make your moves, roll the dies and imagine the outcome. This game really captures that essence really well, I actually found myself engrossed in the fantasy adventure they were creating and almost wished this was a game that could go on forever, which to me is part of what a good RPG is.

This game is an epic, well sort of.

Rating: 4 stars
