From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes an outrageous sequel to 2014's South Park: The Stick of Truth. In the quiet mountain town of South Park, darkness has spread across the land. An entire squad of superheroes will rise to combat this evil, led by a nocturnal scavenger sworn to clean the trash can of South Park society. Create your superhero and use your superpowers to save South Park so Coon and Friends can take their rightful place as the greatest team of superheroes ever assembled, and get the movie deal they so richly deserve.

Game play is where this title shines the brightest, as the RPG system is much improved over the original Stick of Truth. The combat is much more three dimensional, and the builds in this game have a lot more variety. Additionally, the game allows you to place your players on the board, allowing some moves to hit more enemies or hit enemies into other enemies or obstacles. It adds a layer of depth rare in most RPGs.
The issue is this is a Southpark game, so you come for the comedy and the satire. This is where the game kinda falls on its face. I'd go so far as to say the funniest thing about The Fractured But Whole is the episode tie-in "Franchise Prequel."
The issue is the satire is lazy in many places and feels like it was left unfinished. It lacks the bite and attitude of the show, which frequently disregards political correctness under the philosophy "nothing is above being made fun of." Don't get me wrong, this story is not politically correct; moreso that I was left constantly wondering if a joke had to be left out due to Ubisoft. The Southpark team, rather than rewrite, just leaves the setup in without the punchline.
Not only that, but there are several encounters that felt like they were added on a storyboard, but the team forgot to add the connecting pieces, so it feels arbitrary.
At the end of the day, this is a good game. The writing holds it back from being a great one.
Of course, the larger issue is that I really REALLY hate it when game developers lock game features and items behind such stupid stunts. It's one thing to make it a pre-release bonus that won't otherwise be available until later, but what they are doing is just wrong. You also have to login to a Ubisoft account in order to get a number of items in the game that should just be part of the game.
If they ever actually give me what I paid for I will update this review based on the contents of the game, but seriously, you clearly cannot trust Ubisoft to deliver on any pre-order promises.
