Instantly, you know whether you’ll like this game or not depending on whether you like its parent show, South Park. Known for its crude humour, it certainly doesn’t pull its punches on Nintendo’s newest family console.
While some gamers won’t be too thrilled about its gruff, and at times offensive, humour, The Fractured But Whole is a surprisingly fun game that’s extremely easy to lose yourself in. Children, look away now.
Racoons have powers
The Fractured But Whole is a turn-based RPG which follows on from its predecessor, The Stick of Truth. Kicking out straight in the previous game’s medieval world, you trade in your sword and crown for a pair of skin-tight leggings and some snappy superpowers.
You may approach the subject with a sigh, but the game’s strong superhero theme runs along as more of a parody than anything. Your kid gets to choose their first class, gets a tragic back story, and is set loose on South Park to fight crime and, er, stuff.
