The trial – which only lasts for one hour – will save all player progress and choices that can be carried into the full game should you decide to buy it after the trial is over. Anyone interested in the trial can head over to the PlayStation Network Store or the Xbox Store and download it!
For more on South Park: The Fractured but Whole, make sure to check out our review of the game:
I also ran into some odd visual glitches where characters didn’t move properly in battle or a model was set too far forward in the scene, allowing my character to walk behind it and break the illusion. None of these oddities broke the game however, except one issue where I fartkoured to the top of an area and the prompt to get down did not load so I was stuck. Luckily the game has an auto-save slot, so I was only set back by a couple of minutes, but it did set me into a state of panic for a few moments as I calculated how long it had been since I last saved.
Despite these couple of technical misgivings, South Park: The Fractured But Whole is another interactive journey into the minds of Matt Stone and Trey Parker. I quite literally felt like I was playing the show for the 15 hours that I spent in South Park–not surprising, given that the first game met that uncanny caliber of delivering a near perfect recreation. If easily offended, chances are you’ve already written off South Park, and chances are even higher that you aren’t reading this review. Surrounding the fart jokes and fourth graders who love to say fuck a lot, there is a brutally intelligent comedic commentary on many aspects of modern society. It’s something that South Park has always been great at, and something that translates incredibly well to interactivity. Where the first game made a believer out of me, The Fractured But Whole had me farting falling in love with South Park all over again.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole is available now.
