South Park: Snow Day Video Game Gets 33% Discount After Underwhelming Reviews

The latest video game in the South Park franchise, South Park: Snow Day, has received its first major discount, with a 33% price cut to $19.99 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. The game, which was released at the end of March, originally retailed for $29.99.

The discount is available at retailers such as Amazon, which is selling the PS5 version at the discounted price, and GameStop, which has both the PS5 and Xbox versions marked down. The price cut comes on the heels of underwhelming reviews for the game, which has a Metacritic score of 59/100 based on nearly 60 reviews from critics.

South Park: Snow Day is a co-op experience that allows players to join Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny in a new adventure to save the world and enjoy a snow day. The game features frenetic combat, unique weapons, and upgradable special abilities. According to the official description, "A massive blizzard has thrown the town into chaos and, more importantly, canceled school. Play with up to three friends, use matchmaking, or solo the game with ally bots and battle through the snow-piled town of South Park."

Despite the lackluster critical reception, hardcore South Park fans may still be interested in picking up the game at the newly discounted price of $19.99. The 33% price cut makes it a more attractive option for those looking for a new co-op gaming experience set in the irreverent world of South Park.

South Park: Snow Day marks the latest video game adaptation of the long-running animated comedy series. Previous South Park games include 2014's South Park: The Stick of Truth, 2017's South Park: The Fractured but Whole, and the mobile game South Park: Phone Destroyer. While Snow Day has failed to reach the same critical heights as its predecessors, the discounted price may entice fans to give it a chance and join in on the snow day hijinks with Cartman and friends.
