South Park Rally

Well, if you've seen one cart racing game, you've seen this one too. This one is different though in that you have South Park characters racing, plus different power-ups like the phillip and terrance fart/gas speed burst, weapons, plus other things.

Graphics/Display:

The graphics are ok in this one; nothing major. The town is rendered somewhat and the cars and characters are nicely done, but there's nothing new or special about this one. Kept up a decident frame rate under 800x600 and under 1024x768.

Interface/Controls:

The control was typical... Joystick, keyboard or gamepad... The problem was here, is that my gamepad overrode the keyboard... I set it to use the keyboard, and it insisted that I use my gamepad... I set it twice to use the keyboard, and when I started a game, the keys wouldn't work, and my gamepad (which did not want to calibrate correctly) took over and jumped everywhere... It was a nightmare in the menu's... But it worked well enough in the game to play it.

Multiplayer (if any):

Summary:

Gameplay was typical, trying to come in first place while beating all of the other computer controlled players. You have weapons and special power-ups that you use against the other players. I find that a lack of a real map or anything makes it harder to actually beat the computer, because they know where to go, and although there is a map, it's not always clear so you can get lost. It gets easier the more you play, as you start to know the areas, but a bad map is almost as bad. It's not a bad game, but it does get old after a while. I liked the game, and I like South Park, but the game gets old pretty fast. Even on easy it's not that easy... I'm not sure how much harder it gets on the higher levels, but I guess if it gets much harder, you're going to lose all the time... It's kind of fun though. If you're into console games, and need something to keep you busy for a few hours, this is a game for you.
