      Thumbs down

      "South Park Rally" is a racing video game. It was first released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000 by Acclaim. In the United States, the game received an age guidance rating of "M" which deemed it appropriate for ages 17 and above. Its content is based on the animated television series "South Park".

      In a seeming Mayoral declaration to boost the economy of South Park, citizens are advised that major Holidays and public events will now be commemorated with a go-kart style race. Each resident of the town is welcome to participate but much each supply his or her own type of vehicle. The most popular of characters, a total combined roster of 30 with hidden characters, bring forth their wheels and compete against each other in a friendly tournament. The gameplay is consciously modeled on the grotesque jokes and ribs widely featured throughout the series, and in being a kart racing venture features offensive weapons such as alien lasers which can be used against opponents. Players may also harness the power of Terrence and Phillip who fart their way through a burst of speed to propel the driver forward. Players may compete through a championship mode which gradually introduces secret characters over a series of 14 different races, and may use these characters in exhibition matches after successfully completing the championship race.

      One critical aspect which immediately struck me about South Park Rally is its lack of control. Attempting to execute sharp turns around corners results in any given character carelessly crashing into nearby barricades or driving off into the terrain. I found myself having to time my upcoming turns far in advance before actually turning, but even in doing so the precision required seems to break down to basic guesswork and chance. There doesn't seem to be an accurate control model in place and each bend in the track performs with a noticeable difference.

      The graphics are presented from a trailing view of the player's character. Each model is a distinct "bobble head" type figure which sways as per the player's direction. I was able to immediately identify each character with ease and felt the graphics of the title complimented what is seen on television. For players unfamiliar with the programme, however, they may feel there is a distinct "flatness" to the imagery though this is appropriate as per the series. The title also features numerous voice snippets and gestures taken from title characters and implemented into the video game. The music is upbeat and lively, and suitable for a racing setting.

      Overall, South Park Rally is a visually decent offering which is let down by its gameplay. It is not something which I would recommend due to its lack of handling mechanisms which ultimately make for a very poor gaming experience.

        This is south park rally. The coolest racing game on the dreamcast. There are four different modes that you can play in: Championship: This is no simple game. Its not just race around you have to do loads of crazy missions. It may be that you have to keep hold of a pair of briefs for the duration of the race, Or you might have to take lemonade to stands. This championship is no normal championship. Mini champion ship: This is just racing. There are no objectives except to be the first to reach the finish line. There are four check points in each level each of which you must go over. This is just plain straight forward racing. Arcade race: This is just one race. You choose where and you choose who you race with. This is another straight forward racing mode. Multiplayer: Multiplayer in this game is great. You can do all the missions that you do in championship mode. Or you can have a straight forward race. However it is quite to train your eyes on your part of the split screen view. There are many characters you can choose from here is a list of them all: · Stan · Kyle · Cartman · Kenny · Wendy · Pip · Uncle jimbo · Officer barbrady · Chef · Mr garrison · Bebe · Shelly · Tweek · Ms Cartman · Mrs broflosski · Skuzzle butt · Cartman cop · Mr Makey · Big gay al · Ike · visitor · Ned · Mephesto · Death · Phillip&Terrance · Jesus · Starving Marvin · Grandpa · Damien · devil This game, once you get the hang of it handles beautifully. It is unlike any other racer. Because the main game isn’t just a straight forward race. You have to go around completing missions. Such as being the first to collect twenty Easter eggs or keeping hold of the life saving antidote for two minutes. You can also just have straight forward race if you are feeling simple. Each c
        haracter has several of there own funny phrases, which is good the first time. But after that they are annoying The graphics of this game are reasonable, not good/not bad. But it doesn’t really matter about the graphics because the game is great. This game lasts for ages. Because you haven’t probably completed the game until you have unlocked all of the characters .Believe me this takes a long time. Then when you have completed it you will be coming back again and again This game will only set you back £10.It lasts forever and is great.
