South Park: The Fractured but Whole - Xbox One

I am not usually one to live video games made based on animated cartoons or shows.  But, after my husband introduced me to the previous South Park game, I, like so many others have been waiting for this much anticipated sequel release.  And, the wait, with a few delays, proved to be worth it, as this game is better than the first.  

I received the new South Park: The Fractured But Whole video game last week and have been having a blast playing it with my husband at night time after the girls go to bed.  Like the show, it includes a fun story line and throws in parodies which will have fans of the popular South Park series laughing and smiling while they play.  

"It’s been over 2 years since we first announced the unexpected sequel to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth. Since then we’ve been working closely with Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and their crew at South Park Studios to make the most authentic South Park game ever. We know you’re excited to jump right into South Park

So, before you begin, here are some top-level suggestions on how to best approach this epic adventure:

  • Some areas of South Park are initially inaccessible. Revisit them later on after unlocking buddy powers that may clear the way
  • Explore the town freely in the daytime and perform heroic deeds both in and out of the main questline
  • Each night marks a major plot point and denotes a more intensive, linear mission
  • Going to bed triggers the transition to night so take care of other tasks before heading home

Features of this new South Park game:

  • AUTHENTIC SOUTH PARK – From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker & Matt Stone, comes the sequel to South Park: The Stick of Truth.

  • AN OUTRAGEOUS RPG ADVENTURE – Manipulate time & space on the battlefield and develop and refine your powers as you progress.
  • A HERO’S ORIGIN REVEALED – Create your costume, craft your origin story & build out your unique superpowers as you progress.

  • COON AND FRIENDS, ASSEMBLE! – Recruit up to 12 heroes, including Mysterion, The Human Kite, and the infamous Coon himself.

  • EXPLORE SOUTH PARK AT NIGHT – Save the town when the sun sets and South Park's seedy underbelly comes alive.

What is so great about this new game release, which is available on a variety of gaming platforms is the many upgrades from the previous game.  I love how you can develop our own superhero back story  and character before you fight epic battles with the new combat system, which is even more creative than the first game.

Be careful you don't play this game around little ones as there is inappropriate content including poop and fart jokes -- what you expect from this adult comedy animated series.  My oldest daughter walked in on my husband trying to get a game in before work and her a poop joke. Then, all day she was giggling and repeating it.

It is usually hard to say that sequel video games are great, but I don't have to hesitate when saying it about this game.  South Park: The Fractured But Whole is better than the original and will provide fans of the show hours and hours of fun as they enjoy the amazing story line and hilarious jokes and parodies throughout.

So, if you have a South Park fan in your life, or are one yourself, make sure you add this new video game to your shopping/wish list.  It will not disappoint!
