The adventures of French comic book heroes Asterix & Obelix began many years ago, but now they’re back on consoles with a remastered version of a classic PlayStation 2 and PC game in the form of Asterix & Obelix XXL 2. Let the brawling and fun commence!
Players set off in control of the two Gauls, Asterix and Obelix, switching between them freely during the action to overcome the Roman hordes and solve numerous puzzles – with Dogmatix by their side. The astute Asterix is a diminutive warrior able to crawl through small spaces and has the use of the magic potion, whilst Obelix relies on immense strength to power through the toughest of obstacles. They’ll need to explore a thrilling amusement park created by Julius Caesar, Las Vegum, in search of the truth regarding a betrayal by the druid of their home village.
As this is a remaster, you can expect to find improvements to the gameplay, including health bar upgrades, new skills like the Cosmic Strike, and three different difficulty levels to choose from. Furthermore, there’s a new system for collectibles and a host of Challenges, which are essentially bonus missions with the aim of beating a ton of Romans within a set time limit.
To embark upon this action adventure of Asterix & Obelix XXL 2, Xbox One owners should make a swift trip to the Microsoft Store, where it’s priced at £44.99. Don’t worry if you’re not an Xbox One owner as it’s also available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
