South Park Fans Rejoice…Fractured But Whole Has Finally Arrived!

 

If you’re a South Park fan, chances are for the past 3 1/2 years since the release of South Park The Stick Of Truth, you’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of the new highly anticipated game South Park Fractured But Whole.  The wait is finally over, and once you get your hands on this game it’s easy to understand why this is going to be one of the hottest video games this holiday season.

 

 

About the game:

In this epic new game you will delve into the crime-ridden underbelly of South Park.  Created alongside South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, The Fractured but Whole once again lets players become the New Kid in South Park, joining Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman in a hilarious and outrageous RPG adventure.  This time, you will find yourself part of the dedicated group of crime fighters known as Coon and Friends (fronted by Eric Cartman’s superhero alter-ego, The Coon.)  Team up with Mysterion, Toolshed, Human Kite, Mosquito, Mint Berry Crunch and a host of others to battle the forces of evil while Coon strives to make his team the most beloved superheroes in history.

 

 

Who’s in the game?  Aside from the usual cast of South Park characters (all with superhero aliases) you’ll also come across the Crab People, Jesus, Randy and even Morgan Freeman who know runs a South Park taco joint which doubles as a potion-concocting station.  Just don’t try and fight him…nobody messes with Morgan Freeman.

Gameplay is very similar to the original, but this time you’re out there completing superhero missions to fill out your character sheet.  The character creation stages now also include a chance to choose your race, which also determines your difficulty level.  The darker skin tone your choose, the harder the difficulty level will be as you’ll get less money for achievements and people will noticeably treat you worse.  The new mini-games are lots of fun and are a really great addition to the game.

The game may be a little slow to start, but after a while it will open up into the signature absurdity that is South Park, and you’ll be fighting everything from Professor Chaos’ minions to the infamous Crab People.  It wouldn’t be South Park without a super-shock factor, and if you thought the Stick of Truth’s zombie Nazi fetuses were a shock, you haven’t seen anything yet.

In this fun new addition to the South Park family, you will recruit up to 12 members of Coon and Friends to your cause, including Mysterion, The Human Kite, and the infamous Coon himself.  Combine your special powers with the heroes from Coon and Friends to eliminate anyone that gets in your way and defeat the dark power that has spread its evil tentacles over South Park.  By the end of the game you’ll have a whole arsenal of characters to choose from that have been hand selected to form your team.  While the raunchiness of the game may not be for everyone, it was absolute perfection for me, and I know other South Park fans will love this game just as much as me.

If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you seriously need to check it out.  In just under 2 minutes you’ll be completely sold (TRUST ME) and you’ll see why the much anticipated game is a huge hit among South Park fans all over the globe.

Ubisoft seriously out-did themselves this time!  Make sure you follow Ubisoft on their social media channels so you don’t miss any of the great games and upcoming releases Ubisoft has to offer:
