South Park: Snow Day! was released on March 26 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PC and Xbox Series X/S. The adventure game has received mixed reactions from critics and gamers alike. Developed by Question Games and published by THQ Nordic in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios, this action-adventure game marks a shift from its RPG predecessors to a more dynamic 3D co-op gaming experience.

In South Park: Snow Day! players join familiar faces like Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny on a quest to save the city from an eternal winter. The title is designed as multiplayer for up to four players to team up and battle through the blizzard-infested city.

Criticism of the game focuses on its gameplay, humor and overall execution. At Metacritic  “South Park: Snow Day!” holds a score of 61/100 for the PC version and 60/100 for the PS5 version. This reflects “mixed or average” reviews. While some reviewers appreciated the game’s attempt at innovation and the cooperative gameplay element, criticisms were leveled at its repetitive action and lack of engaging content. IGN in particular rated the game 3/10, criticizing its combat system and story execution for not living up to the series’ high comedic standards.

South Park: Snow Day! divides the critics

Despite this criticism, there were more positive scores from outlets such as Shacknews, which gave it 8/10. This suggests that some players might enjoy South Park: Snow Day!, especially those looking for a casual and humorous gaming experience with friends. The mixed reception underscores the divisive nature of the game. Still, the reviews suggest that the title could be a niche among die-hard South Park fans. Those looking for shallow and cooperative gaming experiences may also get their money’s worth.

GameSpot did not provide a rating, but highlighted the key features of the game. For example, the change in style towards the 3D adventure and action genre and away from the more traditional 2D animation style is seen as a positive. This move to 3D was seen as a bold attempt to bring the franchise into a new era of gaming. However, it doesn’t seem to have been received positively by every fan and critic.

In summary, South Park: Snow Day! represents a bold and controversial expansion of the South Park franchise into the realm of 3D co-op gaming. Despite the innovative elements and charm of the beloved series, the title doesn’t seem to resonate with everyone. This is especially true for those expecting the depth and humor of its RPG predecessors.
