South Park: The Fractured But Whole - What are critics saying about the game
Reviews for the latest South Park game
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is the latest hilarious RPG featuring Cartman and the gang, as they embark on 'playing superheroes'.
As the 'New Kid', players will get to choose a persona from ten hero classes as well as a mundane backstory. Witness a new civil war erupt as the Freedom Pals go up against Coon and Friends - after a fallout over Cartman's planned film franchise.
The combat system for this single-player adventure has been altered since the previous South Park game, The Stick of Truth, switching to turn-taking battles with quick time events to help reduce damage and fill characters' super meter.
