The mix of action, platforming and puzzles of Asterix & Obelix XXL2 was already great in the original release, and the improvements of this remaster are for the better, making this game one that fans of these two Gauls will love.

Another remaster that plays with our feelings and memories. A great option if we like the sharped sense of humor of the Asterx & Obelix universe and adds interesting references to videogames of the PS2 and Nintendo Gamecube years.

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 and Obelix XXL 2 was likely no one's first choice for a remaster, leaving only the original fans to return and enjoy it again.
