South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a funny, over the top role-playing game that perfectly transfers the critically acclaimed TV show into a video game medium. Despite some issues, The Fractured But Whole nevertheless is a fun and hilarious ride.
Back in 2014, Obsidian Entertainment’s crack at a South Park game with South Park: The Stick of Truth proved that the satirical animated TV show could work incredibly well as a setting for a game. In lieu of this, however, the game did have some areas where it could have been better. Laughably easy puzzles, simplistic combat and overall repetitiveness prevented the title from being as amazing as it could have been.
Three years later, developer Ubisoft San Francisco has set out to build a sequel to The Stick of Truth that builds upon its successes and improves upon its failures. After playing through The Fractured But Whole, I’m confident in saying that they have succeeded — for the most part.
