Tech Heads' Daniel Istler writes: "For fans of the television show, South Park: The Stick of Truth is exactly what they are looking for in a video game based on the property. Even for gamers who have never seen an episode, The Stick of Truth is a great RPG with humor throughout. Developer Obsidian Entertainment worked closely with creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and it shows in the finished product. The graphics look identical to the animation in the show, and the writing sounds like it comes from a group of people who genuinely enjoy gaming. The Stick of Truth truly feels like playing an episode of South Park, and a great episode at that."
