    One of my favorite things about Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 is that it’s not shy about its appropriation of other video game franchises.

    Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 knows how to adapt itself to modern tendencies in various genres, like platforms or action, though it's obvious that almost 15 years have passed since its original launch. It's fun and charismatic, but with a lower price, it would be a more recommended option.

    Another remastered version of a classic 3D platformer, this time starring Asterix and Obelix. A bit short and easy to complete, but entertaining and engaging at the same time.

    With easy-to-learn action gameplay and some colorful graphics, this Remastered is a good way to please nostalgic players. Sadly, upscaling and retexturing isn’t enough and the camera handling is still a problem, along with the lack of new features or even co-op mode.

    Ultimately, Asterix & Obelix XXL2 is a PS2-era remaster that’s not worth its near-AAA asking price. The brand new additions and lack of availability undoubtedly add some value, but this still feels like the decade-old game that it is. It may be worth the fairly hefty price tag for those with Asterix nostalgia or for an audience that wants to see what a late PS2 licensed platformer looks like, but it’s hard to recommend otherwise. It’s a game that deserves to be remembered and preserved, but the high cost will prevent many from experiencing this strong albeit unoriginal adventure.

    Asterix & Obelix XXL2 has been enhanced since its PS2 days but it still feels like an average PS2 game. The additions are welcome but the old school camera, voice acting, and repetitive gameplay make this a tough game to recommend, especially at such a high price.

    At the end of the day, the charm and well-loved characters are not enough to save Asterix & Obelix XXL 2. It feels like a slog of collecting a certain number of items to get from point A to point B — lather, rinse and repeat. Nothing lands well, other than the updated graphics. No amount of cheesy puns and well-pandered references could save a game from itself when it's poorly made, even if it was decently remastered.
