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. After a fine day's hunting, Asterix and Obelix return to find their village in flames, pillaged by the Romans! They set off to rescue their fellow villagers, accompanied by their faithful Dogmatix. Their journey will take them to Normandy, Greece Helvetia, Egypt and, finally, Rome, in order to save the villagers from the clutches of the emperor Caesar...

Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered Critic Reviews

Some games demand a remaster, to be brought bang up to date for an entirely new audience to find and enjoy. Asterix & Obelix XXL is not one of those games. In 2003 it was a solid, if unremarkable, effort. Now, seventeen years later, it just feels entirely unnecessary, with drab combat, pointless collectables and frustrating challenges. If you really need an Asterix and Obelix fix, best just go back and reread the comics I'd say.

Too many technical problems spoil a good remastered job. The lovers of the original game will appreciate this simple game ideal to play with kids.

Asterix & Obelix XXL: Romastered shows the weight of 17 years in its ancient gameplay structure, plagued by glitches and significant frame rate drops.

Asterix and Obélix XXL Romastered is a great tribute to its 2003 original, taking all the good it had and giving us a graphic section updated to the current era that feels great. It is a short game, which in about 10-12 hours you can have it finished, but you will enjoy them one after another with its platform style and its continuous references to the Goscinny and Uderzo comics. Especially recommended for fans of cartoons, but also for the little ones in the house.
