The Asterix & Obelix XXL series has been around since 2004, and despite only having one sequel up until this year, it has benefitted from many remasters and is impressively available to play on three generations of consoles. While it has mixed (but generally favourable) reviews, it has always had the appeal of being a family-friendly game you can play with your kids, but with enough depth to keep adults and fans of the characters entertained.
Asterix & Obelix XXL3: The Crystal Menhir is the latest game in the franchise, and is a brand-new story, featuring Gaul’s famous duo. This time around, in a first for the series, you can now play co-operatively through the campaign.
“Everybody is enjoying the quiet life, until the druid, Getafix receives a strange letter which will lead Asterix and Obelix on a unique treasure hunt they aren’t ready to forget (and the Romans camps either!). They’ll travel with the mysterious crystal menhir to distant lands, filled with new and unparalleled dangers. ”
“Asterix & Obelix XXL3: The Crystal Menhir offers comprehensive content which will delight fans of all ages. Battle, Exploration, Puzzle and Collection: the game has plenty of options for action! Complete multiple side quests and demonstrate your curiosity as you collect hidden objects to become a true Gaul. ”
