The backstory: you're the new kid in South Park who has to make friends, and you quickly run into Butters, Cartman, Kenny, and the rest of the gang. But instead of taking on their usual appearances, in The Stick of Truth it's "The Great Wizard Cartman" and "Princess Kenny," and you end up picking a class and weapon-pretty similar stuff to a traditional RPG game.
But the project was written and voiced by original South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, so it looks and sounds unique, and also makes you feel like you're in a real South Park episode. As Kotaku puts it, the game "feels like playing an episode of the show," and for South Park fans, that's a good thing.
