A patch has been released for https://www.trueachievements.com/South-Park-Tenorman-xb....htm, with the developers hoping that it will greatly improve the gameplay experience. Included within the update is the new ability to swap between characters in the middle of a level, meaning players could in theory start the level as Kenny and end as Cartman.
