    We already had the good feeling during our preview session two months ago, and it is now a truth : Asterix & Obelix Slap them All! is indeed the little nugget that Microids and Mr Nutz Studio have promised us. Mind-blowingly beautiful (and regardless of the medium chosen, no downgrade, even on Nintendo Switch), the game also enjoys solid gameplay with a hint of strategy quite unexpected.

    One thing is certain, this beat'em up is the fruit of the work of true enthusiasts and it can be felt in the game.

    We’ve really appreciated the return of Goscinny & Uderzo’s creature in videogame with this Asterix & Obelix Slap Them All. Choosing an arcade beat’em up was a fitting idea, and the decision to merge it with an exquisite hand-drawn graphic was the best way to start a new beginning for Asterix in modern gaming. However, the game reuses too much assets throughout the adventure and it's victim of its own repetitiveness, which prevents him to reach higher scores. Perhaps the masterpiece is not on sight, but the Gauls have taken the right road to reach it.

    A game of contrasts. If you look at it as a tribute to the Uderzo and Goscinny comics, it has a lot of charm; If you look at it as beat'em up, it looks like a Gaul who forgot to drink the magic potion before messing with a Roman.

    Slap Them All is by no means perfect. It's shallow, even by genre standards, lacks the all-but mandatory four-player option, has been balanced for two players to the point that it doesn't really work as a single-player game, and fails to give players any reason to give it a second go once powered through. And yet at the same time, it is the best use of the beloved Asterix & Obelix property that we have seen in years and for us long-suffering Asterix & Obelix fans, for that reason alone Slap Them All is a gift.

    Asterix and Obelix Slap'em All is a charming beat'em all which still lacks of depth too keep the enjoyment on the long run. Despite its gorgeous look and animation, the repetitiveness of the 50 levels and simple gameplay aim for a young audience more than the average street fighter.
