  • Summary: The year is 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely... One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. And life is not easy for the Roman legionaries who garrison the fortified camps of Totorum, Aquarium, Laudanum and Compendium.The year is 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely... One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. And life is not easy for the Roman legionaries who garrison the fortified camps of Totorum, Aquarium, Laudanum and Compendium.

    Peace reigns in the small Armorican village, where the villagers go about their daily business. Our two heroes, Asterix and Obelix, hunt wild boar, the blacksmith and the fishmonger quarrel, and the village chief strolls around the village square atop his shield.

    One day, the village druid, Getafix, receives a strange letter. It is from Avina Gandir, the high priestess of Thule! She warns the druid of a grave threat to his people and asks him to take a mysterious Menhir out of its hiding place...

    Set off on an exciting adventure and immerse yourself in the world of Asterix! Alone or in co-op, explore the lands of the Roman empire and unravel the mystery of the Crystal Menhir and its incredible powers!

    In local co-op-mode still somewhat entertaining, but if you play alone it gets stale quite quickly.

    Asterix & Obelix XXL 3 is the third installment in the series: it introduces the local multiplayer mode, but sacrifices the variety of gameplay.

    Asterix & Obelix XXL3: the Crystal Menhir, invites you to experience a brand new story of the two Gauls. In it, we can find what makes the soul of our heroes' adventures: travelling and slapping Romans. On this aspect, the contract is fulfilled. Each level has a different atmosphere, and the graphics add to the feeling of seeing a comic strip come to life. The sound effects and the dubbing also play a major part in the immersion. However, even if the combat phases are rather intense, the repetition of exploration/camps is tiring in the long run and we are eager to move forward. Fortunately, the co-op mode, even if not flawless, manages to reinvigorate the title. You will quickly forget the storyline and have fun, as long as you play with a friend, and a controller.

    After a sub-par XXL 2 remastered, we hoped Asterix & Obélix XXL 3 would be a vast improvement, but we were wrong as the gameplay still insn't satisfying enough, with a fixed camera and many other problems.

    Despite its charming and humorous atmosphere, Asterix & Obelix XXL 3: The Crystal Menhir suffers from technical, gameplay and variety issues that negatively impact the overall experience.

    Asterix and Obelix are back with a disappointing adventure. It’s enjoyable if your a big fan and you’re playing with a friend; if not, the are many better options.

    A forgettable Asterix and Obelix adventure only recommended for unconditional fans.

    The game overall apperance and playstyle is beautiful if you want to play it in co-op.
    ( As such person buying coop game you will not regret it. )
    Visuals of the game itself are beautiful ( at least for the A&O style which adds alot of funkiness and nostalgia at once.
    The game is short however but when its on sale - its worth picking up for 20€ price tag.
    I had a lot of fun with it and it deserves 10/10 just because it exist.
