Asterix & Obelix XXL2

2018 - Microids - Osome Studio

 

 

This release of XXL2 is a remaster of the PS2 game, and a bloody great remaster it is! Having never played this or any Asterix games for that matter, I didn't really know what to expect, other than it being a 3D platformer.

I'm happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this game from beginning to end. I immediately fell in love with the characters & the varied environments the game has to offer. The game is instantly accessible, whether you're a seasoned gamer or just casual.

The enemy designs are excellent too, with a lot of soldiers being piss-takes of over popular game characters, but I won't spoil that here.

You can switch between the heroes at will, but I found Asterix more fun to play with. although certain puzzle sections did require me to play as Obelix.

I can't recommend this game enough, and if you should come across it in your game hunting travels, then definitely give it a go.
