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!

One of my favorite things about Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 is that it's not shy about its appropriation of other video game franchises. There are Romans disguised in costumes giving nods to franchises like Super Mario, Pac-Man, and Rayman. Take a few minutes to look around when you reach new areas and see what Easter eggs you can spot. The game has also made sure to match the humor of the comic series. The awful puns, roast boar for health, Obelix's complaints about being forbidden from drinking the magic potion. All of those nostalgic feelings came flooding back within minutes of starting the game. Like I'm ten again, sitting in my favorite chair with a stack of Asterix books from the library. It's most definitely a game built for the Asterix & Obelix fandom.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
