South Park: The Stick of Truth is a “fantasy” RPG game with a turn-based battle system. The game was developed Obsidian Entertainment known for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II and in more recent years Fallout: New Vegas. The creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker approached the developers directly and provided creative consultancy as well as the full cast of voice acting.
Announced mid-2012 for a 2013 release the game was delayed several times, a main cause being the bankruptcy of its original publisher THQ, the licence being picked up by Ubisoft. It’s finally here and Darren couldn’t wait to get his hands on it to see just what it was like.
