South Park: The Fractured But Whole - Review Round-Up
Can you believe it's out? After numerous delays, the South Park: Stick of Truth sequel is finally available and is getting positive reviews from critics. The South Park humor seems to be in check with RPG elements that seems to keep it fun to watch and play.
Here's the round-up:
Eurogamer - "Ubisoft tightens up the systems but can't quite replicate the sparkle for this fun but flawed RPG sequel."
Polygon - "Whether you love South Park or hate it, Ubisoft has perfectly captured its essence"
Gamespot - "Fractured But Whole succeeds as an interactive South Park mini-series, while effectively emulating the show's current style of adult-targeted entertainment and satirization of political correctness."
Destructoid - "Despite its sometimes uneven writing, The Fractured but Whole is worthy of the highest compliment a game like this could get: It feels like a long, quality episode of South Park."
IGN - "A consistently funny RPG with a strong combat system to match."
Games Radar - "As fun to play as it is to laugh along with"
Dualshockers - "After three years of waiting, the sequel to South Park: The Stick of Truth is finally here and South Park: The Fractured But Whole is not only a fantastic sequel, but it is also the best video game adaptation of the series."
DailyDot - "The Fractured But Whole satirizes superheroes and RPGs in typical South Park fashion"
Praise for the improvements in the game's gameplay is the best thing the sequel can get from the critics. And the reports of it being just like any South Park episode is a no-brainer considering that the show's creators are directly involved with the project since the first game.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Itech, a retail store in the Philippines, has priced the sequel at P2,395 for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.
