South Park - Preview @ GamesRadar

by Couchpotato, 2013-08-25 00:11:18

GamesRadar has a new preview for South Park: The Stick of Truth and says it's,"Less a video game, more a long, playable episode."

Ubisoft's Gamescom demo for South Park: The Stick of Truth was a brief one. But in the few minutes it ran for, it provided swathes of evidence of the game's legitimate credentials, both as a truly worthy South Park game and as a video game in its own right. In fact, like Rocksteady's Arkham games--to make a superficially odd but utterly fitting comparison--Obsidian's RPG feels like one of those rare video game adaptations that's less an interactive collection of references and iconography and more an extended work of canon.

It's there right from the basic presentation, which never breaks from the series' 2.5D, 'looking into the room' visual style. There are no cel-shaded cheats or series-betraying 3D camera pans here. There's not a thing to make you feel you're not watching an episode of the show, aside from the obvious player control.
