Way back in the distant time of December 2011, we were first teased with a glimpse of South Park: The Stick of Truth, an RPG that would potentially be one the few cartoon-to-game translations of this generation to excel beyond the norm, to become that rare licensed game that actually captured the source material perfectly, down to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone (themselves being hardcore gamers as well) being personally involved.
Cut to now. After numerous delays and issues with the game's production (which were even poked fun at by the show itself), The Stick of Truth's tale of the legendary New Kid in South Park and his role in the war to gain the Stick's power can finally be told with the game's release last week. Does it live up to the standards set of by both the show's legacy and the years of hype? Grab some Snacky Cakes and proceed forth to find out...NSFW material ahead, though, so proceed at thy own risk.
