I actually had quite a good time playing SouthPark, both in single player mode, and in multiplay. The game ran quite well, when hosting a game over ISDN, and having 6 people all trying to do each other in with snowballs. Though definitely not the next "quake killer", SouthPark turned out to be a lot of fun. If you like first-person shooters, and even if you aren't into the SouthPark show. The one factor, that kept the game from getting a 100% rating, quite frankly is because they shouldn't have "bleeped" out the !*@!!@# language.

The multi player is a never ending source of fun, there is nothing like being shot with a cow or burying your buddy in a cloud of farts. Southpark 64 is a definite must have for serious N64 gamers, though it may not be suitable to some of the younger gamers and does carry an MA warning on it.

Un jeu assez hilarant, qui détonne un peu dans la ludothèque de la Nintendo 64.

Ondanks dat de serie South Park bij weinigen bekend zal zijn, is deze N64 game voor iedereen de moeite waard. Dit met name door de hoge dosis humor die het bevat. Echt moeilijk zijn de levels niet. Je zou het kunnen zien als een comedy-versie van Turok.

Som shoot 'em up betraktat är South Park knappast det självklara alternativet. Främst eftersom det redan finns spel som Turok 2 och Goldeneye 007. Det här är ett spel som är skapat för dem som älskar South Park, inte för dem som aldrig har upplevt eller ogillar serien. Turok 2-motorn används inte fullt ut och tyvärr försvinner moment som överraskning och spänning. South Park känns lite väl mycket som ett förutsägbart skämt.

In closing, while the "South Park Official PC Game" has something for every fan of "South Park," it is unlikely to do much for "Unreal" and "Quake" players. Then again, it's hella stupid to even compare the two.

Voor South Park fans is deze game een absoluut hebbedingetje, maar ook die zullen moeten toegeven dat de glans van deze game te snel verbleekt. De gein, de grove woorden en de absoluut knotsgekke wapens zijn zeker in het begin vermakelijk, maar al snel is de lol er een beetje af omdat je voortdurend hetzelfde moet doen.

Fans of the TV show will appreciate the humor and the multiplayer game. Some players will probably find the single-player mode less satisfying. The multiplayer mode is worth the price of admission.

South Park was developed in only nine months and it shows. Despite the Turok 2 engine, the strong graphics, the great sound and cool accessories, it's still an average game that's fun for a limited audience. The title could have been so much more if the developers added more depth and challenge, especially in multiplayer mode. Having said that, you're still bound to be entertained by the overall package.

To say that I was disappointed with this game is an understatement. Since it is based off a license, I never should have gotten my hopes up so high. The boring single-player game, mundane enemies and terrible fog made me struggle to continue playing. The only thing that kept me from turning it off was that I could not wait to hear what that son-of-a-bitch Cartman would say next. Sorry, it happened again!

South Park is a very successful game based on the Comedy Central show. It does have some flaws - too linear levels, no weapon carryover between missions, poor save game mechanism, some graphical clipping, etc., but it is very funny and enjoyable to play. If you're a fan of the show, you'll appreciate what was put together in this package. It's true to the show and its brand of offbeat humor. Bottom Line: The look and feel of the game is perfect; it really is a 3D representation of South Park. Levels are a little too linear, and the save game mechanism shows the game's console roots. If you're a fan of the show, you'll appreciate how the show's unique brand of humor shows through.

The one good thing I liked about this game is that the codes were pretty funny, other wise please, don't even bother to spend 10 bucks on this game, use it wisely on other games.

WindowsGame Over Online
Alas, multiplayer and cool cutscenes isn't enough to save this game. It's too uninteresting and plays too much as a very mindless shooter. Think of it as a modern day space invaders. You just keep killing enemies over and over and over. If you're a diehard South Park fan, this should give you some giggles for a little while, but even then it's stretching anyone's patience.

South Park n'intéressera que les amateurs de la série. Les graphismes sont peu fouillés et l'intérêt du jeu vole au ras des paquerettes.

Toch zijn de graphics van deze PSX versie vele malen slechter als de mooie vloeiende beelden van de N64 of PC, en dat was naar mijn mening niet nodig geweest. Desondanks blijft South Park een leuk spel die elke fan van de serie in huis moet hebben.

WindowsPC Zone
Virtually every character from the series eventually makes an appearance at some point in the game, but unfortunately these cameos add little to the overall gameplay experience and seem little more than window dressing. The multiplayer game makes up for a proportion of this, but not enough to make anyone other than the most die-hard South Park fans to part with their money.

Bref, South Park peut être jugé de 2 façons, selon qu'on est un inconditionnel de la série, ou pas. Pour le joueur lambda, il faut bien le dire, South Park est un mauvais doom-like, répétitif et linéaire à l'éxcès. Les fans quand à eux trouveront marrant de s'immerger dans l'univers loufoque de la série!

La série possède des dessins originaux. Ici, ils sont loins d'être réussis. Bizarre, d'envoyer des boules de neige hexagonales ! Les armes, quant à elles, sont toujours aussi surprenantes: lance débouche-cabinet ou encore lance-vache. Carton rouge au mode multi-joueurs, qui se résume ici à un mode deux joueurs, contre quatre sur N64. Dommage. Les fans de la série devraient toutefois y trouver leur compte.

Mit einem anspruchsvolleren Levelaufbau, einigen Aufgabenstellungen abseits des Weges und zusätzlichen Gegnertypen wäre das Konzept voll aufgegangen. In dieser Form kommt allerdings schnell Langeweile auf.Dies kann dann ja alles in der Fortsetzung, die Acclaim bereits für das kommende Jahr angekündigt hat, nachgeholt werden. Wir drücken auf jeden Fall die Daumen.

PlayStationPSX Extreme
Since the game lacks a lot of variety, and variety affects the replay value, I had the lower the replay value a lot. Yeah, so if it has 2 player support, and so that it has secret characters. That fact of the matter is this: South Park is a pretty cheap game that needs more variety in order for it be a pleasant title to enjoy. Sorry Acclaim, maybe next time.

Als großer Fan der Serie habe ich dem Testmuster von South Park richtiggehend entgegengefiebert und, um ein Fazit vorwegzunehmen, unter meinen Collectibles nimmt das Spiel auch einen Ehrenplatz ein. Damit hat sich‘s aber auch mit den Verwendungsmöglichkeiten, denn freiwillig werde ich das Ding wohl nicht nochmal anwerfen. Dabei habe ich noch nicht einmal ein Problem mit dem zähen Nebel oder der kruden Grafik, die Atmosphäre des schlicht inszenierten Vorbildes wurde an sich nämlich recht gut eingefangen. Nein, das große Problem von South Park sind die dicken Patzer im Gameplay, schon nach zehn Minuten ermüden die immer gleichen Angriffswellen und die strenge Linearität aufs Äußerste. Acht Kühe, 640 kleine und 23 große Truthähne war die Gegnerbilanz der ersten Episode und auch im weiteren Verlauf ändert sich nichts an der langweilenden Gleichförmigkeit. Das witzige Multiplayer-Deathmatch kann da leider auch nicht mehr viel rausreißen.

I had very high hopes for this game, but ultimately I felt that it was a complete letdown. While the graphics are often spectacular, and the storyline and sound effects are nearly as funny as the cartoon itself, it simply doesn’t have an enjoyable game backing those qualities up. Unless you’re a serious South Park fan, looking for something to add to your collection, I would strongly advise passing this one over.

Like any game based on a TV show, you'd have to be a fan of the show to appreciate the game. Those fans should find a few hours of mirth in online deathmatching, which works quite well over the Internet with a standard modem connection, but the simplistic design and tedious single-player game will only annoy shooter fans.

PlayStationAbsolute Playstation
Ideally suited to a weekend rental, due to the simple fact that once you have worked your way through the first episode, everything that follows is pretty much the same. With gameplay that is about as linear as space invaders the witty script, funny one liners and bizarre enemies soon get boring and you are left wondering why you didn't spend your money on a pile of South Park videos rather than this game. No doubt this will still sell very well due to the name, but with a host of terrible PlayStation releases one after the other, Acclaim are in danger of falling back into their old ways... 'Someone's killed South Park... Its Acclaim... You Bastards !'

All in all, this is a half-assed attempt at a game. From Iguana, who people would expect to use all five asses when designing a game, South Park 64 is a disappointment. The humor from the show is there, but this game will find its way to that dusty shelf before you can say Skuzzlebutt. Though the multiplayer is fun, that too gets old fairly quickly. Rent this one when you need your South Park fix, and save your hard-earned cash for a better game.

In den USA ist die gleichnamige TV-Serie deshalb so populär, weil praktisch jedes Tabu der "Political Correctness" gebrochen wird und die vier Bubis schrecklich ordinär sind. Dieses Konzept funktioniert auch am PC - aber nur für 30 Minuten. Dann kennt man alle Sprüche von Kyle und Co. und sieht hinter der niedlich-sadistischen Grafik den Schmalspur-Shooter hervortreten. Simples Leveldesign mit immer gleichen Gegnern, die in unkoordinierten Scharen angreifen. Für Fans der Anarcho-Serie ist South Park dennoch kaufenswert: Der Geist des Vorbilds leuchtet aus jedem Pixel, und Dumpfbacke Kenny wird auch hier mit brachialer Regelmäßigkeit über den Jordan befördert.

South Park as a video game is fun for all of about three minutes. It isn't fun, isn't funny, misses on all cylinders, and generally just woefully fails to live up to its namesake. I tried, repeatedly, to see what I was missing, and finally came to the realization that this game was nothing more than a quick attempt to get people to buy a lame game because of its association with a much funnier, livelier and more entertaining TV show. Oh my god! They've killed Kenny. And Cartman. And Kyle. And Stan. And all the fun of South Park. You bastards!

Perhaps this game will be the one that proves that it takes more than a hot license and some gratuitous violence to make a good game. Yeah, and maybe Kenny won’t die in this episode, either.

Acclaim hat nicht nur Kenny, sondern auch den Spielwitz gekillt. Trotz selbstloser Vorrecherche (Studium zahlreicher TV-Folgen) läßt mich das Programm eiskalt. South Park übertrifft mit seiner ganzen Dahingeschludertheit alle Befürchtungen, die man gemeinhin mit Spielen zu Filmen oder Fernsehserien verbindet. Angesichts des verwanzten Leveldesigns vergeht einem schnell das Lachen: In jedem Level werde ich von chaotischen Riesenrudeln hirnloser Kamikaze-Angreifer genervt. Das Vernichten der langlebigen Spielwelt-Endgegner dauert fast länger als eine TV-Episode; mittendrin speichern darf ich natürlich nicht. Die Technik spendet keinen Trost: Für seine nebelumwölkte Einfachst-3D-Welt braucht South Park peinlich viel Hardware-Power. Chaotisch, aber relativ unterhaltsam sind die wilden Deathmatches, die noch am ehesten dem Seriencharakter entsprechen.

WindowsAdrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
The antithesis of innovation, the designers missed the creative potential in the license. Simple graphics, problematic control setup, and mind-numbing, repetitive action add up to little more than a game that passes gas and considers it amusing.

WindowsComputer Gaming World (CGW)
As the big South Park fan in the CGW office, I found the game disappointing. The only people I can see enjoying it are die-hard fans who don’t do much action gaming. so they don’t know what they’re missing. For the rest of us, though, it’s just one more licensing misfire, but with a twist: Instead of a bad game that misuses the license, we just get a bad game that uses the license well. Not even Mr. Hankey can save this game.

WindowsJust Games Retro
I’m not going to lie, the most fun I had with South Park was when I slapped on some cheat codes and blasted through enemies without thought. I take this as a further suggestion that the PC port’s added difficulty levels were a haphazard afterthought, and “Easy” (or just the N64 original) is the way to play. Even still, this isn’t a game meant to last, and the basic FPS format doesn’t even try to be as funny as the show. Whapping clones with an infinite supply of snowballs to brief, recycled voice clips from the show isn’t something that even fans can embrace. Nothing that made the show worth watching is here.

Contempt for the software increases when, upon investigation of the cardboard environment, you discover that none of it is in the least bit interactive. No gross damage of public property is possible with the kids’ default snowball weapons, only gates can be activated, and nothing can be moved. Hoards of identical enemies can be killed, and that’s it. Split-screen deathmatch (for two of you, not four like the N64 version) is the best part of South Park, but its ‘hilarious’ repeated voice samples will leave you gagging for Quake II instead.

Hm, robi się coraz ciekawiej. Ostatnio można zauważyć ogromną liczbę gier, które nawiązują do filmów i seriali telewizyjnych. Niestety czasem zdarza się, że produkty te nawet w połowie nie dorównują wersjom oryginalnym i niestety nie robią większego zamieszania. Na szczęście z SOUTH PARK jest inaczej. szczerze przyznaję, że nie zawiodłem się na tej grze. Jest równie zwariowana jak serial, i to uważam za największą zaletę. Kupujcie! dobra zabawa gwarantowana!

South Park is by far the most frustrating game experience I have ever had. Not because of the quality of the game but because it combines a phenomenal license, a respected publisher and one of the world's best developers. That should have been more than enough to create a brilliant game. Instead we have utter proof that everyone is capable of having a bad day.

Between the abysmal graphics, bad sound, and horrible gameplay, South Park is definitely one of those games that is bound to come up when you start thinking about the worst game you've ever played. It's a real throwback to the days of completely worthless games with decent licenses - the kind Acclaim used to be infamous for back in the days of 8-bit and 16-bit gaming. South Park fans looking for some interactive action would do well to wait for South Park Rally or Chef's Luv Shack.
