south-park-stick-of-truth-first-impressionsAdult animated sitcom – South Park is available for you in a game form. Yes! The South Park creators – Matt Stone and Trey Parker who mock day-to-day happenings have scripted South Park: The Stick of Truth, which is a turn-based role-playing game, otherwise known as RPG. It’s the first RPG game based on the series and pretty much feels like you’re a part of the TV show. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi Band 4 First Impressions: Color display and more upgrades

Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, Stick of Truth is surprisingly one of the most detailed games that one can play. Right from the start of the game, you’ll have to choose and build your character to become the “new guy” who moves to the crazy town of South Park. So you’re definitely none of the four main characters. You’ll have to create his or her avatar from quite an elaborate list to choose from. Ranging from eyewear to skin color, the player can go nuts with their wildest imagination. Also Read - Oppo F7 Hands-On and First Impressions: Clones, clones everywhere!

When it comes to the plot of the game, as the new kid in the town, you decide to join Eric Cartman’s action role-playing game. Your main objective is to guard the Stick of Truth. Cartman allows you to create a character of one of five classes — Warrior, Mage, Thief, Cleric and Jew for this main objective. Whatever you make your character to be, he or she will be silent throughout the game.

south-park-stick-of-truth-first-impressions-3Using your character you can explore each house and location you reach. Sometimes cupboards, drawers and boxes that can be searched will be highlighted in yellow, for certain collectibles like money (that is important to purchase weapons) and weird items like toothbrushes and such.

As you play on, you will stumble upon subtle and even in-your-face South Park references which make you chuckle like a little squirrel, if you’re into that kind of stuff. Among some of them, South Park’s Chinpokomon lay around the town to collect.

The game exploration is bound to the 2D rules of the animated show. It pays homage to the trademark paper cutout animation which is combined with the dead-pan expressions of all the characters in the game. The game has a semi-linear path as well, so it’s not too restricted when it comes to movement.

As you play along, you will realize that things are not as easy as you had expected. The battle system for is robust and timing is the key. Each battle requires you to perform timing-based mini-games to squeeze out more damage. Choosing the right attack for each enemy is key as sometimes the enemy force holds shields or possess sneaky abilities (such as the thief class).

south-park-stick-of-truth-first-impressions-2South Park: The Stick of Truth has only a single player mode and will launch on March 7. It will be priced at a staggering Rs 2,999 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Rs 999 for the PC. It is definitely something worth getting your hands on, but only if you are a hardcore South Park fan! In no way is it a game for the kids, because let’s face it, it’s South Park.
