Sometimes I feel like games stopped being fun, but I’m happy to tell you South Park: The Fractured But Whole is one hell of a fun game. Sequel to Stick of Truth, Fractured picks up directly after Stick ends and plays off of the superhero craze, playing mage to Civil War with Coon and Friends battling the Freedom Pals going head to head to see who can score the best superhero franchise. We customize our hero and battle the treachery of 6th graders, crab people, and a towel going through some serious withdrawl, as well the evil of Professor Chaos and the dark plot to bring South Park down. First, this game brings all the vulgar but cleaver humor of the show to the game and keeps fresh throughout. Seriously, with the graphics it looks and feels like you are in the show which is cool as hell. The combat is fun and easy to pick up. It’s turn based and feels like a chess game with positioning which was really cool, giving you opportunities to gather extra damage from knocking enemies into each other or there surroundings for extra damage. The powers can be blended and can be used to vary your experience pretty well. It’s a rare thing these days when games are simply fun but this definitely is and I highly recommend it for its creativity, humor, and fun combat. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
