Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

Come on, this has to be one of the worst games ever to come out. The game is easily one of the most frustrating, unrewarding, unfair, and simply put-- not much fun to play. Some innovations such as point to point races along with several chase modes might make it a modest change, but everything else about the game just ruins any possible joy that could come from this game.

Graphics:

Pretty standard issue stuff here, similar graphics that resemble those found in the television show, cardboard cut-out and flat 3D models that look better than the television show, decent animations, funky looking "special effects," and other stuff.

Sound and Music:

Pretty cool voice acting of the characters depicted from the television show are very cool and excellent to listen to, although the rest of the game offers nothing else cool or special to say about. Some sound effects are pretty funky and curses are common.

Multiplayer:

Umm... only support for LAN? What is that? Good luck trying to connect any game or get one going without a LAN connected to your system, I for one don't have a LAN connected...

AI and Difficulty:

Once again, I'll have to pound this in your mind that the AI is one of the most unfair and unforgiving AI schemes ever programmed into any game before. The AI acts and plays like a god, it never makes mistakes and recovers from attacks almost instantaneously.

Controls and Interface:

Standard issues stuff here, nothing special outside of having an interface. At least nothing is broken or is disfunctional here.

Overall:

Possibly one of the worst games ever to be released. The extremely unforgiving gameplay, too strict AI, and other mediocre issues in graphics and sound make this game not very much fun or enjoyable. Add that with the most frustrating games of all time, then you've got what South Park Rally equals up to.
