South Park: The Stick of Truth is an RPG based off the South Park franchise. You play as a new kid (Douchebag as known to by Cartman) who just arrived in the town of South Park, Colorado. You immediately become thrust into a battle of epic proportions as you join together with many characters such as Kenny and Butters in order to procure the magical Stick of Truth from the evil Elves.
Starting off the adventure you get to choose between four different classes: Warrior, Mage, Thief, and Jew. Your appearance is completely customizable at all times with new outfits and accessories able to be found around the town. Social networking is an important feature in the game. When you meet new characters they become friends with you on the Facebook social network. Things like quests, your inventory, the town map, and more are also all displayed on your profile page. Your friends will post messages from time to time on your wall and give tips on how to beat quests and on where to find certain characters.
The game is visually made to look just like an episode from the television show. Written by South Park writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the story takes place after the season 17 Black Friday episode trilogy. Combat is turn-based and relies on the HP/PP system found in many other games. Taking damage reduces your HP and using your abilities/magic to dish out damage consumes your PP. HP/PP is completely restores after every battle. The character is able to become stronger by changing their equipment and gaining experience in battle. After obtaining a certain amount of XP the character levels up and is given upgrade points. These points are then used to strengthen your abilities. Meeting set amount of characters unlocks different perks to help in battle.
