Before I start the review, a note on the censorship of this game in Australia: After playing the uncensored version (in Sweden) from start to finish I think there are many scenes that are far more affronting and potentially offensive than those the OFLC chose to have removed. Moreover, when you look at these censored scenes in a greater context including other games that have been banned or censored the selection of what is and what isn't ok seems completely arbitrary. Yes I know they have "guidelines". I guess expecting a censorship regime to be coherent, no matter how supposedly civilised the country is, doesn't make any sense.
Now for the review. TLDR; extremely funny(same type of humour as show), good quality RPG that perhaps was a couple of hours too long.
This game is a product of a practised studio together with Parker and Stone. The gameplay, visuals and sound are finely polished as to be expected. The graphics and visuals really put you into the series in a way that I haven't seen done for cartoon to game conversions.
The RPG elements (character skills, items, etc) are well designed but if you are a completionist you may find that you max out your skills and have the best items a few hours before the end of the main story. This matches the game difficulty which is entertaining early on before plateuing mid game, its about as hard as a sponge late game.
By far the best thing about this game is the humour. There are ideas in this game which I haven't seen anywhere else and which we unfortunately probably won't see for a while. Travel up a guys ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, perform abortions, beat up homeless people and meth addicts, deftly matrix dodge out of the way of a pair of gigantic testicles and much, much more. This game has it all, most of which you can still experience in the land down under. The laughs are very much in this same vein as the TV series so if you found the humour there tired you will probably not enjoy this game.
Thanks for reading,
