I've been binging a bunch of my old games in preparation for the new console I'll be buying tomorrow, and earlier today I started playing South Park for the PS1.
For those that aren't familiar with the game, here's its review on this site: https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/south-park-review/1900-2549391/
It's the 4th lowest rated PS1 game on GameSpot and was universally panned, though the N64 version was somewhat better received.
I was a little kid the first time I played it, and being a big South Park fan at the time, I remember liking the multiplayer a lot. I never really played the story mode back then, but I played through the entire game today.
The story mode is, well... not good. I didn't hate playing it, but it wasn't exactly riveting gameplay. I haven't watched South Park since about 2004, so I didn't really care about any of it. I was about ready to switch to another game when I decided to ask my wife for some multiplayer action.
I wasn't expecting much, but we both had a blast! One match led to another and the next thing I knew, two hours had gone by. It's not a great game by any means. I'd struggle to even call it good, but if I'm ever looking for some cheap multiplayer fun, heck yeah I'll pick it up again!
What are some critical failures that you like? Maybe some guilty pleasures?
