Cartman hosts Coon and Friends and Timmy – in the hilarious role of Dr. Timothy – hosts Freedom Pals. As both sides argue, our role will be to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the cats in South Park and unravel the deepest mysteries of this mystery.
The new ‘South Park’ game is hilarious, offensive, and absolutely worth your time
The new game “South Park” is one of the smartest, stupid things I’ve ever experienced. The amount of work that goes into something so incredibly idiotic is impressive: it’s essentially a playable movie South Park.
More than just looking exactly like the show, South Park: The Fractured But Whole is packed with characters from the show, full of jokes and set in the city of South Park, Colorado.
The script of the game is 360 pages – according to the creators of “South Park” Trey Parker and Matt Stone – the size of two feature films and about twice as long as the last game.
As a bonus, it’s a pretty fun game! I’m about 15 to 20 hours at this point and can’t wait to play the rest.
WARNING: Spoilers ahead for “South Park: The Fractured But Whole,” including story and gameplay.
It’s probably obvious, but I’ll tell you directly about South Park: The Fractured But Whole – it’s a review, after all. If you don’t want to spoil anything, turn back!
I like the South Park series, pretty good. I saw this movie in theaters a million years ago. I played the first game (for work, but enjoyed it!).
If none of this applies to you, or you don’t like South Park, I highly doubt you will suddenly turn your back on the series after playing The Fractured But Whole. Basically, it’s a very long episode of South Park, with a lot of interactivity. You visit the city of South Park, talk to people, collect things, and fight your enemies. There is plenty of space to explore as you like and also a major path of progress that you can stay on if you prefer something simpler.
And it’s all good! But it’s the writing, voice-over and storytelling of South Park that makes The Fractured But Whole so special.
In the same vein, “The Fractured But Whole” is an old school RPG with modern graphics. Combat is turn-based, which means combat takes place literally on a turn-based basis – this is a tactical system, not a real-time system.
If this all sounds like gibberish to you, you probably don’t want to play South Park: The Fractured But Whole. That said, “The Fractured But Whole” is a very easy introduction to the world of RPGs. If you’re looking for a role-playing access point, this is it.
We also know that looting and crafting have undergone major changes. In the video below, we see both systems in action as The New Kid and Captain Diabetes need to create a “special” gin and tonic to get rid of the bartender, and each successful creature raises your craftsman rank.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole takes up the story with which South Park: The Stick of Truth ended. There is an episode of the South Park TV series that brings the two games together, this episode is known as the Franchise Prequel.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole takes place in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. At the beginning of the game, the Raccoon (Eric Cartman) is sitting at the table in the Raccoon Lair, where he and his friends are dressed up as superheroes. The Raccoon has planned a series of videos for the group and explains it to the group. Arguments appear and the group is split into two. One group becomes the Raccoon and Friends, while the opposite group is called Freedom Pals, led by Dr. Timothy (Timmy Burch). Freedom Pals clam for their own brand and a “civil war” begins between the two superheroes.
The Coon’s Opening Story

“What happened to this town? Once there were laws, justice. Not any more. Crime is out of control – cats are missing and townspeople are falling victim. We were supposed to protect those who could not defend themselves. Now there are superheroes torn apart by political differences. We are two sides at war, but war will not save our city. Time travel is my only hope right now. Myths tell of ancient times, when a new king united a kingdom, torn by a mighty stick. There is no time to lose. I have to go back, change the present if I can, and find this cat, and with that, maybe I’ll change what happened for all of us.”
