South Park Rally takes a page from the Marketing 101 textbook with the idea that a popular genre mixed with a popular license ought to create a popular game. In addition, it also borrows from the Good Book by keeping the adage "an eye for an eye" alive and well. Such is the lack of reverence that comprises the action offered in the game. Nothing's sacred here.
Your racing action will take place in the town of South Park as all the major members of the South Park cast jockey for position on the track. You'll get a chance to take on up to four other players in the multi-player modes, and you'll be able to drive through Championship or Arcade mode for a little single-player action. Championship will put you through your paces in several different race scenarios like Valentine's Day, where you'll be able to win by strumming the heartstrings of your fellow racers with Cupid's bow.
Other wacky twists on races include Spring Cleaning, where you have to nab a pair of undies and keep them on as you hit the checkpoints in possibly the only race where skid marks on the racers are needed to win. You'll celebrate other holidays in equally strange ways. The Arcade mode will let you select your racing scenario for a little fast action
Since the game is using the cast of characters from the show of the same name, don't expect anything less than their trademark naughty language and true-to-character taunts. The weapons also stay true to the show's spirit with strange weapons like Spooky Vision, which plasters Saddam Hussein's face all over the screen. Other weapons of note include Herpes, the Mexican Staring Frog, the Anal Probe and other unimaginable torments like Pinkeye.
Start your engines, ladies and gentlemen! South Park Rally is here and the world of go-kart racing will likely never be quite the same ever again. So batten down your bladder, irritate your colon and get ready to curse your throat raw. There's really no way to avoid it on the streets of South Park. ~ Joe Ottoson, All Game Guide
