South Park Rally is a racing game based on the popular animated series South Park. It features characters and humor from the show, combined with racing and combat mechanics. While it captures the essence of South Park, the game’s overall execution received mixed reviews.


South Park Rally is a racing game that brings the irreverent humor and characters of the South Park cartoon to the world of video game racing. Players can choose from a variety of characters and vehicles to compete in races filled with chaos and comedy.


“South Park Rally” is a kart-style racing video game released in 2000, based on the American animated sitcom “South Park”. The game was published by Acclaim Entertainment, near the end of the third season of the show. It was developed for multiple platforms including PlayStation, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast.

The game’s plot revolves around the fictional town of South Park, which is no longer safe. The Mayor has decided to stage a rally series that will take place through the heart and outskirts of South Park. All of your favorite characters from the show are now armed to the teeth with destructive automobiles, including police cars, mini Porsches, Big Gay Al buggies, wheat bags, jeeps and dozens of other demented vehicles.

The gameplay follows the player in a competitive racing championship set in South Park. Players are given the options for multiplayer, arcade, or championship modes, but only the championship unlocks extra features. The competition begins in South Park’s 1st Rally, a circuit race around four checkpoints in the downtown area of South Park. Races get gradually more diverse, with more locations, racers, and elements added as the game progresses.

The game includes characters, vehicles, locations, items and other features inspired by or featured on the series. It was developed simultaneously for all major consoles during the time of its release. Version differences include the number of unlockable characters and stages, with the Nintendo 64 version being on the low end of features due to hardware limitations.

However, “South Park Rally” received poor reviews from critics. Criticism derived from the differences between the two major home console ports, Nintendo 64 and PlayStation, as well as the general lack of innovation over other kart-style racers such as Mario Kart 64. “South Park Rally” would become the last South Park game by Acclaim Entertainment and the last home game in the franchise until “South Park: The Stick of Truth” in 2014. Series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone would go on to ridicule Acclaim’s games based on their series in later years.

“South Park Rally” is a unique blend of the humor and characters from the “South Park” series with the excitement of kart racing. Despite its shortcomings and mixed reviews, it offers a nostalgic trip back to the early days of the “South Park” series and the turn of the millennium gaming scene.

South Park Rally offers a mix of racing and combat, with players using weapons and power-ups to disrupt opponents. The game features different race tracks, each with its own challenges and obstacles. The controls are designed to be accessible, making it easy for players to jump in and start racing.


South Park Rally is a game that will appeal to fans of the South Park series, offering a unique racing experience filled with the show’s trademark humor. However, its gameplay and controls may not satisfy all racing game enthusiasts.
