Review

South Park fans have been let down time and time again by the poor quality of Acclaim's South Park titles. Unfortunately, South Park Rally, while easily the best of the South Park games, continues this losing streak with poor control and graphics. The story, as if this game really needs one, is that the good townsfolk of South Park commemorate every holiday by holding a go-cart event. These events range from simple races to events where one racer needs to hold on to an item for a certain length of time. For instance, on Valentine's Day everyone assembles at Big Gay Al's place to shoot one another with cupid arrows. The catch is that there's only one bow, making it a fight for control of the bow while trying not to get shot. Once you get the bow, you must get enough distance between yourself and the other drivers so you can get off a few shots without losing it. This setup makes the gameplay fast paced and even frantic at times. To help you fend off or prevent the other racers from passing you, the levels are filled with an arsenal of offensive and defensive objects. There are dogs, cats, and alien lasers, all of which can stall your opposition for a brief period of time. There are also little Terrance and Phillip boxes filled with gas, giving you a momentary speed boost. You can even pick up Mr. Hanky, who patrols around your vehicle, keeping you free from harm for a limited time. The gameplay, while fairly fun, is hampered by poor control and physics that make the game hard to play. The biggest problem with the control is the vehicles' turning speed. If you get yourself in a tight situation where competitors are coming right at you, you might as well just take it head-on, since turning around takes forever. As does getting your vehicle back on its wheels after it flips, which happens a lot since the car physics are way too floaty, resulting in vehicles bouncing all over the place. Graphically, South Park Rally looks downright sloppy. The one exception is that all of the characters and their vehicles look pretty decent. The levels and objects on the levels, however, look poor and washed out. A copious amount of pop-up rounds out the depressing graphical presentation. The raunchy quips from the game's characters are funny at first, but they quickly become tiresome. In the end, South Park Rally's charm, even for the biggest South Park fan, wears thin fairly quickly - especially when compared with Crash Team Racing, a similar, yet nearly infinitely more entertaining PlayStation game. South Park fans may want to rent this game, but it's far too limited to consider for purchase.--Ryan Mac Donald--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc. All rights reserved.

Product Description

Take a wild tour of South Park, Colorado, in the most twisted rally racing game this side of nowhere. Cruising through South Park Forest, downtown South Park, and sites familiar from the TV show, racers forego the typical lap-to-lap racing style for a treasure hunt-style game. All of your favorite South Park characters are joining in the quest, including Cartman on his police tricycle and Chef in his station wagon. Collecting a variety of items from various locations, racers have a number of tricks up their sleeves to thwart fellow competitors. Mexican staring frogs, chocolate salty balls, and Mr. Hanky, for example, inflict damage to competitors' vehicles in ways that are better seen than explained.

Single racers are pitted against computerized opponents, while up to four players can team up, go head-to-head, or race in challenge mode. South Park Rally carries a "Mature" rating due to the fact that it's set in South Park's twisted little world. --Eric Twelker

4.0 out of 5 stars What happened to Cartman's big wheel? January 26, 2000

Wow! After playing Crash Team Racing, the graphics on this game really suck! However, I'm a die-hard fan, so the concept really kicks ass! Who'd ever thought of using Ol'Freda as a weapon! For as elementary as it seems when you start up, it's quite challenging. It's hard to maneuver the vehicles. If you've been considering a South Park video game, this one is the best of the ones available.

5.0 out of 5 stars SWEET GAME, PERIOD. January 16, 2000

If you want to choose between South Park Rally, and Chef's Luv Shack, South Park Rally is the one to go with. It has great graphics, great cars and other vehicles that are in the show, including Cartman's police trike. You can choose from all the characters you love, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Ned, Big Gay Al, Wendy, Skuzzle Butt, Ike, Cartman's Mom, and of course, Cartman, and there are still tons more! Get this game, it is worth it! Very fun racing game!

3.0 out of 5 stars fun, but tedious (yes, even for South Park) January 31, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was honestly surprised at the high quality of this game (you'll understand if you ever played the original South Park shooter game). With challenging and original missions, nearly every character you can imagine, hilarious sound bites and great boards this game has the potential to be really awesome, but it is nearly impossible to advance or unlock the additional features since you have to start at the beginning of the Championship Series EVERY TIME! And with only a limited number of credits when you start (5 credits, but you can find extra credits hidden on the race-boards) this gets very time consuming very quickly. You can practice a specific race in Arcade mode as much as you want after you have unlocked it in Championship, but you still have to slave away through the other races. To (almost) quote Cartman: "Race is never finished, massa got me workin', somday massa give me a cheat"
The N64 version is slated to come out in late February, and though it might be a bit more expensive I would definitely recommend waiting to see if they fix these "problems." Much as I love South Park and have enjoyed discovering the few things I have managed to acquire in this game, it is really starting to get boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FUN AND CHALLENGING GAME! January 5, 2002
This game is what you call challenging and fun. You get to be a lot of the South Park characters such as Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartmen, Wendy and many, many more. You earn characters as you accomplish the different race courses and some you earn for more challenging stunts. I like this game because it is not a game you can finish in a day. Some games are sooooo easy that you are able to do this. Before you go buying this game, I would suggest renting it first just in case it is too hard of a game for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hard game but a great challenge February 27, 2000

The biggest problem I have with games these days is that you can finish them so quickly. South Park Rally was a refreshing difference. It really is quite hard toplay to start with, that is until you get use to the fact that you are not driving in circles and that you infact have to think to play.
The game has over 30 characters but as yet I havn't unlocked nearlly half that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game August 27, 2000
By a fan
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first game of South Park was a disapointment. In South Park Rally, the creators improve considerably. The characters aren't blurry and you don't get sick. Even though each race involves an extensive learning commitment, the game is fun and excting. The game has more characters, such as Bebe, Homeboy Eric, Ragiddy Andy Stan and Braveheart Chef, and the racetracks give you feel for the game and the show. The only thing that needs improvement is the driving. If you fall back in a race, you can pretty much call it quits. If you have to run away from every contestant, they usually catch up to you. Some of the cars move too slow, and the reversing is terrible. Good game but driving needs improvement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game but Hard to get all the way through January 19, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a fun game, fun racing game and you get to choose different characters run over cows and have fun obstacles to throw at other players. At first I was so lost and confused mostly since I was playing in arcade mode where there were no roadblocks to tell me I was going the wrong way. Finally after getting route on race one down, I finally won a race in championship mode and got to level two and saved my game finally. But it seems to win the real game and get to higher levels you have to start at the beginning and win all the races thats not easy at least for me. The good part is though is once you have a level unlocked and saved you can practice all you want in arcade mode, but winning wont get you anywhere, you still have to play championship mode and win all the races.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELCOME TO THE WEST SIYEEEEEEED... December 11, 2004
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this game is unbelievably awesome. you can play as almost every south park character.you start of with just eight but you can unlock more and more until you have like a hundred.the racers (all of them) are cartman,stan,kyle,kenny,jimbo,officer barbrady,chef,wendy,ike,mrs.broflovski,mrs.cartman,ned,police cartman,big gay al,mr.garrison,scuzzlebutt,starvin' marvin,dr.mephisto,mr.mackey,jesus,satan,damien,bebe,death,stan'sgrandpa,pip,alien,tweek,shelly marsh,raggidy stan,braveheart chef,and homeboy cartman.oh,what a mouthful.there's tons of characters.it's all good.there's all kinds of weird tracks like the city,the farm,the sewer,the animal sanctuary,and the forest.There's also stupid pickups like the mexican staring frog,stan's dog,salty chocalate balls,and puke blaster.it's just the type of vulgarity and raunchiness that is strangely refreshing to young minds.so pick this game up if you get the chance,or you're just bored,or you're hungry,or even if you just have to pee.it's a great game for any occasion.it's rated mature just because it's set in the twisted world of south park.so just pick it up some day.it feels so good,mmm'kay.
