Let’s Greet the Romans ‘nicely’ – Asterix & Obelix XXL3: The Crystal Menhir Review

With Control, Death Stranding and even Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it’s nice to come across a smaller, non-Triple-A joint like Asterix & Obelix XXL: The Crystal Menhir for review (and of course, play).

Here’s a snippet from our review:

And fairly, that’s the best way to close out this review. This has been one of my favourite games to play this year due largely to its simplicity from a management perspective, but its subtle depth where combat and crowd-control is concerned. It’s also wonderfully presented on an excellent engine and just keeps this very old license alive in a celebratory way. The ever-green Asterix & Obelix world is one the younger generation should wholly embrace and games of this nature serve that purpose well. It’s not without some shortcomings, but they’re few and far enough between, that they’re easily overlooked for the greater product, which is fun, cute and engaging brawler where you get to beat up on oppressive Romans, look for hidden collectibles, navigate gauntlets and uncover a globe-trotting story worthy of the original books the game itself is based upon.
