South Park: The Stick of Truth

Ubisoft

PS3, Xbox360, PC

Due March, 2014

If you’re making a videogame based on a TV show, it probably helps if that show is a crudely drawn and rather basically animated affair, which is why South Park: The Stick of Truth could be one of the few crossover success stories (it has also been written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, which helps). Playing out much like an episode of the show, The Stick of Truth is a role-playing adventure that sees you take control of a new kid in South Park Elementary on a quest to earn your rightful place alongside Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny (assuming he doesn’t get killed first). Expect flatulence.
