Ubisoft’s second South Park game, South Park: The Fractured but Whole, is almost here. The irreverent RPG launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC tomorrow, October 17, and now reviews for it have started to appear online.
Like its predecessor, The Stick of Truth, Fractured but Whole puts players in the role of the New Kid, who moves into South Park and joins a superhero team with Cartman and other South Park mainstays. In GameSpot’s South Park: The Fractured but Whole review, critic Miguel Concepcion called the game “a delightfully fart-tinged journey that delivers satisfying gameplay and surprising absurdity in equal measure.”
Other outlets have likewise begun posting their reviews, and most seem to agree that South Park: The Fractured but Whole is another enjoyable adventure, especially for fans of the series.

GameSpot — 8/10
“Fractured But Whole succeeds as an interactive South Park mini-series, while effectively emulating the show’s current style of adult-targeted entertainment and satirization of political correctness. In other words, it’s consistently amusing and provocative without the edginess the series used to be known for. Both the game’s combat and explorative strengths effectively bridge the many comical plot developments, which range from mildly amusing to downright hilarious. It’s an accomplishment that this game will wholly entertain devoted fans while delivering a heap of jokes that won’t fly over the heads of casual viewers.” — Miguel Concepcion
