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.

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.

Astérix & Obélix XXL 2 is back after thirteen years, in a conversion adapted to the current generation. Under the form of an action and adventure game, Astérix & Obélix XXL 2 includes a wide amount of content and features several fun and enjoyable moments, even though its conversion could have used more work when it comes to the sound effects. Not a groundbreaking title but still a fun game, which should be sold for a lower price tag.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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