This free South Park-themed game strikes us as an amusing little diversion, yet we have some quibbles with its design and somewhat small feature set. If you watch the rather long intro story, you’ll learn that Cartman has turned to the dark side, infecting local citizens with a virus. As Stan, it’s your job to traverse different levels, smiting Cartman’s minions to get to the main man himself. Planet of Cartmans 2 is played like other platform-style games, as you jump over rocks, water, and other hazards while blasting away at your foes. The graphics look pretty decent when you’re playing in the tiny window, but when you resize the game to full-screen mode, they appear pixelated. Also, in full-screen mode, the bars for your health and ammo often obscure the action. You will find three difficulty levels, but you can’t reconfigure the control keys or adjust the volume. Despite its flaws, South Park fans short on cash are likely to enjoy this freebie, at least for a while.
