Imagine a world where everyone has the chance to be a hero. To rid the neighbours of crime, defend those who can not defend themselves, be a beacon of hope and justice. Now mix that with a range of profanities, references to your parents doing the deed and a lot of moments where you laugh and immediately think how ashamed your mother would be if she knew. You now have South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
Last week, I visited the Ubisoft Sydney office and go to spend an extended period of time with the second instalment in this hilarious series. Getting through the first few missions, I left feeling quite surprised at how eager I was to continue on.
To be honest, I have never been a dedicated fan of the TV series, nor did I play The Stick of Truth. However, I did watch a few walkthroughs when the first game released, and have watched a TV episode here and there. I feel like anybody who knows nothing about the series would be completely with some of the things in this game. In true South Park style, nothing is sacred and don’t think they won’t go there cause they will. In fact, they’ll go past what you thought were the boundaries.
