Review: South Park: The Fractured But Whole

A love letter to South Park fans that doesn’t disappoint

Having played the first South Park game, The Stick of Truth, sporadically over summer 2014, I had high expectations for the sequel. As an avid South Park fan, I tried to be as objective as possible, but believe me: it was no easy task, as this is truly a game built for the fans.

The premise of the sequel is essentially a spoof of modern superhero movie franchises. A key difference from the off is how this game embeds itself into an already established narrative within the show; the equally inappropriately titled ‘Coon and Friends’ plot, which has been the focus for a number of episodes already.
Regardless, these issues are not so problematic that it takes away from the game as a whole; it is a genuinely memorable game — if not simply because of how ridiculously funny it is. With multiplayer existing almost as a must-have in many games these days, it’s good to see a game still delivering on a detailed single-player experience, and one that is so different to anything else you’ll find right now. With enough run-time and replay value, it certainly warrants the purchase.

Score: 7.5/10
