South Park VR allows you to roam the streets of South Park in first person, either with a standard monitor of with an Oculus Rift headset for the fully immersive experience.
The town has a layout that will be familiar to anyone who has played The Stick of Truth, and all the South Park residents roam the streets ready with a quick sound-bite (Terrance & Phillip are a particular highlight) when you get near. While South Park VR isn’t really a game per se (you can’t really interact with anything), it’s fun to roam the streets spotting the various residents, landmarks and in-jokes.
Staying true to South Park‘s ethos, the animation is suitably shoddy, with the 2D characters on a 3D background working well to create an authentic version of the Colorado mountain town. As far as Rift support goes, it’s probably a waste of cutting edge technology, but it’ll certainly make you smile if you’re a fan of South Park. The in-jokes and sound-bites are what make South Park VR worthwhile, we won’t spoil it for you but MAKE SURE YOU GO INSIDE THE CHURCH!
