South Park 64
ESRB Rating: Mature (Ages 17+)
Rumble Pack and Expansion Pack compatible
Performance Points: 8
Just about everybody has heard of and most likely watched the TV show South Park, considering that it's one of the most watched TV shows in the world. Most people know the show for its rude and racist jokes, and violence. Well that's exactly what the game is like. Some people thought that the game may not have all the violent qualities of the show but they were proved wrong.
The game allows you to choose from the four main characters (Cartman, Kyle, Stan, and Kenny) that are used in the one player mode where the player goes around and completes missions that are based on specific TV episodes. The player may choose from weapons like the Auto Egger (actually a chicken that fires eggs out of its ass), a Cow Launcher, and snowballs which are scatter all around each level and must be picked up in order to use them.
In the multiplayer mode you can play against up to four other players. The object is to kill each other as many times as possible in a set amount of time or to kill each other until one player reaches a set amount of kills, like Goldeneye, using the weapons listed above and more. Each player can be any one of the four main characters (Cartman, Kyle, Stan, and Kenny) or many other regulars of the TV show that are received as levels in the one player mode are completed.
Surprisingly enough the game is not all gore but it also has some of the best graphics of any game on the market, when used with the expansion pack (the expansion pack boosts the systems memory and is sold separately). To sum it up the game is entertaining because of the hillarious and obnoxious jokes but is especially hard to control. I would give it an 8 on the Nintendo Empire Performance Points Scale.
