The lights are on
What new ideas the game brings to the table and how well old ideas are presented.
How good a game looks, taking into account any flaws such as bad collision or pop-up.
Does the game’s music and sound effects get you involved or do they make you resolve to always play with the volume down?
Basically, the controller to human interface. The less you think about the hunk of plastic in your hands, the better the playability.
Flat out, just how fun the game is to play. The most important factor in rating a game.
After myriad delays and hilarious presentations at assorted press events, South Park: The Stick of Truth is finally coming next month (fingers crossed), and three new videos have appeared online showing the game in action.
The first of the three videos which you can check out below, brings us the return of Mr. Hankey and his lovely, inebriated wife. The second introduces us to some mysterious green goo and its affects on red-haired children, and the last is a TV spot that I'm sure we will be seeing a lot during The Daily Show and The Colbert Report's commercial breaks.
I don't know if trailers for South Park: The Stick of Truth need this disclaimer. At this point it seems like it should be understood that there will be inappropriate content, but just in case, watch out for inappropriate language.
For more on South Park, you can check out the game's recent behind the scenes video as well as all of our coverage from when we featured the game on our cover by clicking the banner below..
South Park: The Stick of Truth is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 4.

Hope this can live up to the hype, South Park fans deserve at least one great game.
