MEDIOCRE - Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 fits the bill if you're looking for a casual beat-em-up with some light puzzle solving elements. Unfortunately the repetitive combat and high price make it hard to stand out from other great Switch titles.

Asterix & Obelix XXL "is a good remaster that pulls nostalgia to bring us back a PS2 title that is still very funny today, for Tutatis!

In the case of Asterix & Obelix XXL 2, the ravages of time are definitely noticeable, but they certainly weren't as cruel to the famous Gallic fighters as they were to other similarly styled titles. XXL 2 can still entertain even now and it can be enjoyed not only by the nostalgics, but also the younger players.

If you happen to still love the Asterix & Obelix franchise, then I suppose Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 is a no-brainer. It’s not a bad game by any means, but it’s certainly not good or genre-defining in any way.

These Gauls are back, and they are still crazy. And overpriced as well.

Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 is not the tribute to these funny and lovely characters that we expected to be. Fingers crossed, maybe Asterix & Obelix XXL 3 is the true savior.

Even with some issues like improper graphical options on the PC version of this remaster, XXL 2 is still an enjoyable experience for the fans of the original game. However, because most of the game's mechanics and features have not aged well, it will most likely not appeal to new audiences

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.

The remastered version of the Indomitable Gauls' latest adventure is here, but is it worth going back to Las Vegum?

Overall, I found myself enjoying some parts of the combat and almost all the cut scene dialog but the majority of my experience was filled with repetitive gameplay and poorly integrated platforming.
