South Park Rally Dreamcast Prototypes


I'm goin' down to South Park Gonna have myself a time.

Friendly faces everywhere Humble folks without temptation.

  Goin' down to South Park Gonna leave my woes behind.

  Ample parking day or night People shouting "Howdy Neighbor!"

Heading on up to South Park. Gonna see if I can't unwind

Mmmm mmmm mmmmmm mmmmm mmmm mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm (x2)

Come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine.

I can still smirkingly remember when, as a young carefree 16 year-old, my school mates first introduced me to South Park - Season One on videotape: Mr.Hankey, the Christmas Poo, Starvin' Marvin... this giant piss-take of a cartoon kept us awake at night, giggling by our CRTs. Those were the days ...

Who would have thought, at the time, that South Park was to become a cultural phenomenon: an animated series known by most and revered by some, and as of this current year of 2022, we're celebrating Southpark's twenty-fourth season! Feeling old, yet ?

It's safe to assume that Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the show, are sitting on a real gold mine today. Between the films, the merch and of course, the video-games, the series has made shedloads of money. Not bad for a "crappy" cartoon.

Enough nostalgia, let's get down to our main business for today: South Park Rally on the Sega Dreamcast.

No cursing on the race course !

South Park has built its reputation on shameless toilet humour and assumed political incorrectness. From Gays to Canadians, no one was spared; not even Saddam Hussein. Fans have been eagerly waiting for a video-game that could rise up to this standard of infamy. Sadly, the first few attempts went south........ The First Person Shooter wasn't exactly a Kenny-Killer (oh God), while the Trivial Pursuit turned out harder and less interesting than Mr.Garisson's sex-ed test. That was until Acclaim decided to give it a go: jumping on that Mario Kart bandwagon.

The principle is pretty straight-forward: barrel through the seven circuits as one of 38 "Dudes" including Jesus, Death, Damien and Officer Barbrady. What an absolute delight: grab items along the way, throw them at your opponents and make sure you cross that finish line first - no holds barred !

You might also be assigned to various missions along the way, such as picking up chickens or collecting turkeys to save Christmas.

It goes without saying South Park Rally unleashes its full lunacy potential when competing against one or several friends  -something we've taken for granted since the first Mario Kart.
