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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
