The first South Park video game is a rather horrible first person shooter. For what was a very lucrative project for Acclaim, it seems like they allocated an extremely low budget to it – everything looks cheap, there is next to no variety in the weapons and enemies, enemies are bullet sponges, and the game runs like utter crap. Yet it’s not the worst South Park game Acclaim released!

Throwing snowballs at turkeys: the video game.
South Park for the Nintendo 64, PlayStation and PC was the first game based on the now long running animated comedy. Acclaim picked up the license and had Iguana Entertainment churn out a quickie first person shooter. The result was not pretty – and it’s actually the best one Acclaim published. After Acclaim’s third abysmal South Park game (South Park Rally), series creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone refused to license the video game rights to the series for almost 10 years.
