If you are a fan of South Park, and like Tower Defense games, then there’s nothing not to like about South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play!
True to the nature of the show, South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play! (which will hereafter be referred to as SPLGTDP!) is all about the humor. With generous vocal support from show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, this Xbox Arcade offering focuses its plot around an invasion of the titular (hehehe) town of South Park, presented in an exaggerated manga style reminiscent of the “Fun With Weapons” episode (hence the mouthful of a title).
As it has always been in that Colorado town, it’s up to the children to save the day.
This isn’t going to be a week to revolutionize the console, nor will it provide any major game-changers that history will look back upon with massive significance. However, there are some nice items coming down for Xbox 360 owners that I will happily accept and enjoy.
The more esoteric offering up for grabs is the exclusive premium Fallout 3 theme. Available for free to those who purchased all five DLC packs (Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout, and Mothership Zeta) prior to a cut-off point early last month, fans of the awesome post-nuclear game should have already received an e-mail with a code for redeeming the download. I’ve got mine, and it’s a cool theme (although I have to admit that I’m tempted to go back to the free Halo 3: ODST one that came out before this one).
I’ve c0vered more than my fair share of tower defense games for this site. And while I’m a fan of the genre, there’s one thing that is fairly universal to the genre: they all feature single player campaigns, and you are not a direct part of the action.
Yes, you set up the towers, and yes, you can usually throw them down even in the midst of an assault. But in every title I’ve covered, that is the end of it. Set the tower down, and watch what happens.
Well, the folks behind South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play!, releasing exclusively for Xbox Live Arcade on October 7th, weren’t happy with that approach. So they decided to change things up by giving you a playable character that partakes directly in the action, and you can bring your buddies along too with up to four player co-op.
