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
You've seen the movie. You've memorized every episode. You slaughtered killer turkeys indiscriminately in Iguana's original South Park title. You mock the idea of a South Park trivia game. You want speed. You want G's. You want to lay rubber all over Kenny's innocent little face.
Well, wait no more (OK, maybe a bit longer). This holiday season, you and your friends can put Sega's Dreamcast to shame with the [cough] best animation seen yet in a racer. Developed for the PC, the PlayStation, and the Nintendo 64, South Park Rally will take on Need for Speed 3 and Gran Turismo 2 as theracing game to play with buddies. Gamers get to race over and around (and likely through) the various South Park institutions, which fans of the show will instantly recognize. You can select more than twelve characters for a joyride through downtown South Park or the South Park forest, and each character has a vehicle that matches the driver's personality. Cartman whips around the competition in a 4x4 Sport Utility Vehicle; Grandpa defies geriatric physics in a rocket-propelled wheelchair; Chef dashes about in an ugly wood-paneled station wagon; Officer Barbrady jaunts around the town in the official South Park police cruiser; and Stan screams past opponents in his father's stolen hot rod.
Early word from Tantalus Software indicates that South Park Rally is, naturally, based more on character interaction than on pure racing. When fighting, players can hurl weapons like chocolate salty balls at their opponents, or unleash the devastating Mexican Staring Frog. Acclaim's product manager Tom Bass won't release much information, but he did say that many of the multiplayer levels are cooperative, and that coordinated efforts will be necessary to see players through. He also added that the traditional notion of what a racing game is has been overlooked because South Park Rally is going for laughs. The title will feature levels based on traditional South Park festivities, such as Christmas and the infamous Cow Days.
Matt Stone, Trey Parker, and Isaac Hayes have selflessly volunteered to record original sound bites for the new title so that all the more players will find themselves being drawn into the colorful, carefree world that is South Park. As in South Park: Chef's Luv Shack, game boxes will display labels indicating the rather "irreverent" nature of Acclaim's latest production. Whether this will diminish or boost sales is anyone's guess. A new kart game is just what the [cough] dying console racing genre needs, and if any 1990s franchise can bring in the disposable dough of video-game fans around the world, it's South Park. --Doug Trueman
