  1. Trust me when I say the pummeling action is simply not to be missed; there's really nothing quite like it. [Sept 2004, p.62]
  2. Adults will move through relatively quickly and may lose interest before the end but the cartoon graphics are so perfect and funny that the kiddies should enjoy it all the way through.

    With graphics and audio that feel at least five years old and a clunky combo system that are all easily ignored, the puzzles and size of the game are what really make up the overall experience. The gameplay is decent, but just barely.
  4. I can't let my desire to root for an underdog discount the fact that this game is really nothing special. [Sept 2004, p.111]
  5. This budget platformer's few interesting ideas are submerged under its litany of half measures and conventionalities, which include an outdated graphics engine, relentlessly boring level design, and heaps of sterilized button mashing.
  6. There is very little to do in Asterix and Obelix...A bland beat 'em up that squanders years of classic comic mythology. [Oct 2004, p.35]
  7. Boring fights, easy puzzles. [Oct 2004, p.96]
  8. Just about everything about this game is below par. The script is lame and does little to highlight the characters' personalities or the almost adult-oriented context of the comic book theme.
