South Park Rally is a racing game based on South Park, developed by Tantalus Interactive and published by Acclaim Entertainment for the PlayStation, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 64, and Sega Dreamcast.

Why It Sucks

  1. The PlayStation version has poor graphics, although other versions look slightly better.
  2. The PlayStation and Nintendo 64 versions have frame rate issues, while the Dreamcast and Windows versions do not.
  3. Instead of simply running laps around a track, each race instead involves passing through checkpoints (1-2-3-4 to complete a lap), grabbing a specific item, and so on. This can be very frustrating at times.
    • The races themselves get repetitive real quickly.
  4. If your character gets knocked into the air, there is a possibility of them landing on their heads and getting stuck there until they are warped back to normal.
  5. The controls are stiff which makes the driving hard to control.
  6. False advertising: On the cover, Kyle's car is blue and the license plate reads "SWEET" but in the actual game, it is red and the license plate reads "SUCC ASS". Also, Cop Cartman is featured prominently as if he were a default character but he is an unlockable character in-game. Lastly, Kenny's front bumper is purple on the cover, but blue in-game.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Good one-liners (although repetitive).
  2. The Dreamcast version has an exclusive carnival level.
  3. The large selection of characters from the show (lots of them come as unlockables).
  4. The PC version has mod support. Here are some examples: Butters, City Night and Lisa (Tweek) Simpson.
  5. In the intro screen, the game (like the show it is based on) admits that it is bad and should not be played.

Reception

South Park Rally received negative reviews. On aggregating review website GameRankings, the PC version received 47.38%, the PlayStation version 44.68%, a Dreamcast version 44.54% and the Nintendo 64 version 43.21%.

Over time, the South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have publicly criticized Acclaim and the quality of the games as well.

Trivia

The design of the game (levels, items, etc.) differs depending on what version you play.

I once heard of this game, and the design for Tweak looked as if he was a scarecrow with lots of cheese. I can't handle how bad the designs are.
