It’s tough being the new kid. Within a few minutes of arriving in South Park my wee avatar had earned the indelible nickname “douchebag”, bestowed upon him by the local chubby bully, and been beaten up by a bunch of kids dressed as elves.
Far, far worse was to come. South Park: The Stick of Truth is exactly as foul and exactly as funny as I thought it might be – but it actually plays better than I dared hope. It’s a proper open-world role-playing game set in the South Park universe, casting you as a stranger in a town that’s instantly familiar.
