South Park - Preview @ 1Up
A short preview of South Park at 1Up:
The game starts off by placing you in the shoes of the new kid in town. You'll assemble your avatar from a variety of facial features pasted onto your iconic circular head, adorn your hero with an assortment of winter clothing, and proceed to venture forth into the profane wilds of South Park. The game draws inspiration from the high-fantasy episode The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers, so the various character classes in the game are represented via slightly tweaked versions of D&D tropes. Though the game certainly displays some PC-inspired elements such as branching dialogue trees, the battle system in The Stick of Truth draws heavily from simpler RPGs of the mid-'90s. In fact, the demo that Obsidian was showing at times felt almost like an homage to games like Super Mario RPG.
