South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been well worth the wait. Building off of the massive success of The Stick of Truth, Fractured But Whole has an incredibly satisfying combat system that leaves you constantly eager for the next fight, exemplary and natural dialogue from everyone in town, and a truly epic soundtrack. With a fully customizable character, loads of pop culture references, and political satire that might hit a little too close to home, this is exactly the game we hoped it could be. In terms of a raunchy, dirty, filthy, cuss-filled RPG that pushes the boundaries of comedy, no one does it better, and I mean that in the best possible way.
IGN Italia (Oct 16, 2017)
Non mancano diversi inciampi tecnici anche qui, soprattutto riguardo alla sincronizzazione fra audio e sottotitoli (spesso imprecisi, alcune volte totalmente sbagliati o monchi) che viene però bypassata dal doppiaggio italiano. Ci sono rallentamenti così lunghi, per fortuna rari, da far temere un blocco del gioco e aspetti come Procinstagram avrebbero potuto essere approfonditi di più. A fare da contraltare abbiamo un sistema di combattimento solido e profondo quanto basta per intrattenere senza farsi troppo complicato, le missioni secondarie ad arricchire il background della città, il crafting e una storia capace di prendere risvolti inaspettati nella sua logica e critica follia. Se siete appassionati della serie animata, non potete lasciarvelo scappare. Se invece non lo siete ma non vi scandalizzate di fronte al turpiloquio e la brutale schiettezza con cui sono trattati certi temi, avrete davanti un GDR interessante, capace di intrattenervi per circa una trentina di ore.

South Park balances ample fan service with gameplay that stands on its own merits and an engaging story. It won't make you a fan if you weren't one already, but it's hard to imagine a better-realized adaptation.
Game Informer Magazine (Oct 16, 2017)
The Fractured but Whole is a welcome sequel, maintaining the standard of quality set by the previous game and, in a broader sense, all of Parker and Stone’s work. Every aspect is overloaded with both smart and immature jokes, the combat is an improvement, the game is bigger and longer, and the sneaky moments of sincerity make you recall the charm of childhood in surprising ways – just like the show.

Abschliessend lässt sich ganz klar sagen: Wer den ersten Teil geliebt hat, findet hier deutlich durchdachteren und länger anhaltenden Spass. Neueinsteiger und Kritiker des ersten Teils müssen sich auf repetitive Kämpfe und längere Durststrecken der Handlung einstellen. Natürlich hätte ich mir das perfekte "South Park"-Spiel gewünscht, doch enttäuscht bin ich deswegen keines Falls. "Die rektakuläre Zerreissprobe" bietet in vielerlei Hinsicht mehr als sein Vorgänger, kommt aber nicht ganz ohne dessen Schwächen aus.
Hobby Consolas (Oct 16, 2017)
South Park Retaguardia en Peligro supone el regreso triunfal de la obra de Trey Parker y de Matt Stone al mundo de los videojuegos, una nueva temporada dentro del universo de South Park que no se aleja mucho de su predecesora, pero que vuelve con todo el humor de las mejores épocas de la serie.
Ein überraschend komplexes Rollenspiel, das eine spannende Geschichte mit bösartigem Humor verbindet.
Girl Gamers UK (Nov 07, 2017)
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a great, well-made sequel. There are places where the game has improved upon the original, and places where it hasn’t. While gamers with no interest in South Park will be able to appreciate the combat mechanics and RPG side of things, the fans of the show will find the game bursting with fan service. Overall, The Fractured But Whole is a great game that is at its best in the hands of an RPG-playing South Park fan.

Comme c'était le cas avec le Bâton de la Vérité, South Park : l'Annale du Destin est indispensable pour les fans de la série. Si on regrettera l'absence des voix originales auxquelles se sont substituées des doublages de qualité discutable, la trop grande facilité du titre ou encore le manque de profondeur de l'aspect RPG, le titre se déroule dans un enrobage d'une telle qualité que passer à côté de son histoire rocambolesque et de son humour corrosif serait franchement regrettable. Avec ses combats franchement variés et bien scénarisés, la grande fidélité à l'esprit de la saga et le plaisir ressenti à prendre part activement aux drames de la petite ville du Colorado, L'Annale du Destin vous donnera la sensation d'écrire vous même un épisode d'une quinzaine d'heure, qui ne manquera pas de bousculer la bienséance et de vous faire pleurer de rire. C'est bien là ce que l'on attendait de lui et c'est pour cela qu'on y joue.
IGN (Oct 16, 2017)
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is another epic-length episode of the humor that’s kept fans of the show laughing for 20 years. The Marvel vs DC parody delivers regular laugh-out-loud moments with only a few faltering gags, and the combat soon evolves into something much more complex and interesting than The Stick of Truth’s simple system. Navigation and repetition of some of its simple puzzle mechanics drag a little, but it’s otherwise an excellent South Park game that’s also a strong RPG.
MAN!AC (Oct 16, 2017)
Gelungenes und originelles Rollenspiel-Abenteuer, das vor allem ”South Park”-Fans begeistern wird und die Vorlage klasse einfängt.

Wenn man South Park: Die rektakuläre Zerreißprobe mit einer Phrase kennzeichnen möchte, ist es "ungenutztes Potenzial" – vor allem angesichts der Standards, die der bei uns mit Gold ausgezeichnete Vorgänger setzen konnte. Hinsichtlich des taktischen Kampfsystems ziehen die Superhelden um Coon, Mysterio & Co zwar spielend einfach an ihren Fantasy-Vorgängern vorbei, doch im Umfeld lässt man zu viele Chancen ungenutzt, um unter dem Strich die Qualität von Der Stab der Wahrheit zu erreichen. Der Humor bietet in seinen besten Momenten mit all seinen Flüchen, Sex, Fäkalsprache, Furzorgien oder Gewalt all das, was man von Trey Parker und Matt Stone erwartet. Und das 1:1 der Serie entsprechende Artdesign ist ohnehin über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Doch es gibt auch überraschend viel inhaltlichen Leerlauf, während sich im letzten erzählerisch Gas gebenden Drittel eine mechanische Redundanz breit macht.
Spazio Games (Oct 16, 2017)
South Park Scontri Di-Retti è un’esperienza che si trasforma in unica e irripetibile per i fan della serie animata, che dopo anni di attesa potranno tornare nella loro città preferita e dare ancora una volta un calcio al culacchione più amato di South Park e ascoltare tutti i suoi panegirici sulla vita, ridendone ma comunque dovendosi confrontare con qualche difetto sparso qui e lì. Dall’altro lato, però, c’è una pletora di videogiocatori che non si lascerà ammaliare dall’irriverenza che è propria del titolo e che, dinanzi a un combat system originale ma eccessivamente ripetitivo a lungo andare, storcerà il naso. L’esperimento non era facile, ma il lavoro compiuto è in parte comunque apprezzabile, soprattutto dal punto di vista tecnico.
InsideGamer (Oct 18, 2017)
The Stick of Truth toonde aan dat er een prima videogame te maken valt op basis van het materiaal dat de serie biedt. The Fractured but Whole is hier een hele fijne voortzetting van die vooral vol zit met fanservice. Misschien wel iets te veel. De game verliest die extra laag diepgang die de serie wel heeft. Dat is jammer, maar gelukkig is The Fractured but Whole goed genoeg om de speler flink wat uren aan toffe, ongecensureerde content te bieden.
GameSpot (Oct 15, 2017)
Fractured But Whole succeeds as an interactive South Park mini-series, while effectively emulating the show's current style of adult-targeted entertainment and satirization of political correctness. In other words, it's consistently amusing and provocative without the edginess the series used to be known for. Both the game's combat and explorative strengths effectively bridge the many comical plot developments, which range from mildly amusing to downright hilarious. It's an accomplishment that this game will wholly entertain devoted fans while delivering a heap of jokes that won't fly over the heads of casual viewers.
Game Rant (Oct 16, 2017)
All in all, it’s fair to say that South Park: The Fractured but Whole stands as a great follow-up to The Stick of Truth, and a game that fans of the TV show are bound to appreciate. It may have been a long time coming, but The Fractured but Whole is certainly worth the wait, particularly for those who want to have a bit of light-hearted fun with their RPG gameplay.
Power Unlimited (Oct 16, 2017)
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is een lekker laagdrempelige, maar toch nog aardig diepe Light RPG geworden waarin geinige gevechten, leuke collectables en veel grove humor je wel een uur of dertig weten te vermaken. Maak je echter de onvermijdelijke vergelijking met z’n voorganger, The Stick of Truth, dan is dit niet op alle vlakken een verbetering, vaak een herhalingsoefening en wat betreft humor en verrassing zelfs een lichte achteruitgang.
Polygon (Oct 16, 2017)
The Fractured But Whole’s breezy combat and puzzles provided a few days of entertainment, and the best moments of the game had me either laughing or, against all expectations, emotionally touched. I don’t particularly regret my time with the game, but it mostly made me think about how much better the creators of both South Park and The Fractured But Whole could do if they were given the opportunity and space to grow up a little.
Game Revolution (Oct 16, 2017)
Ultimately, South Park: The Fractured But Whole is still a polished RPG that die-hard fans of the animated series will love. However, while its combat system has been greatly improved, its failure to provide the same belly laughs as The Stick of Truth, the lack of variety in its locations and its mundane puzzle-solving make for a disappointing follow-up. I enjoyed my time with The Fractured But Whole, and it’s clear that a great deal of effort went into its development, but after this I’m not so sure that I’d want to revisit South Park a third time.

Det er forbedringer å spore, men det positive utjevnes av de monotone mekanikkene.
Digital Trends (Oct 16, 2017)
South Park: The Fractured But Whole isn’t an even experience. Some moments are fun and pretty funny, but others feel pretty uninspired. Exploring the town of South Park isn’t as novel this time out, and it largely isn’t as funny. RPG systems like combat, looting and crafting are just involved enough to make them interesting, but the firm emphasis is on the story and humor of the show. With the plot taking a while to develop and with so many jokes just feeling played out, loose on their landings or easy and obvious, it’s tough to really get excited to head back down to South Park.
