We've seen countless video games based on movies, animated series, comics, and all kinds of media. Big or small, most of them eventually get adapted into a video game, and in this case, we're covering a game that adapts from a series of comics from France that have been popular for quite a long time. We are talking, of course, about Asterix & Obelix, the characters originally created by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny. This latest game is titled Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia, and it's developed by Microids and OSome Studio. Now, we all know Asterix & Obelix, but what is this new game all about? Well, let's talk about it!
About the game
Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia is an action, adventure, and fighting videogame where the most famous Gallic warriors of the cartoon world are back once again, It is the year 50 B.C. Gaul is fully occupied by the Romans. Well, not completely! A small village of unyielding Gauls is still resisting the invaders... this time to respond to the request for help from Hibernia (the ancient name of Ireland). Here we'll meet Keratine, daughter of the chief Whiskitonix, who will ask our heroes for help to free Hibernia.
Once again, we will control Asterix and Obelix in different 3D scenarios, to deliver cakes and liberate Gaul from the Romans. We will also have the help of Panoramix, our inseparable druid who provides us with potions of all kinds. As we have already said, this new game bets on 3D action and will follow in the wake of the Asterix & Obelix XXL trilogy. There will be different types of cameras and accessibility features. The particularity of this new release is that we will be able to play in cooperative mode. Up to 4 players will be able to fight in The Ram From Hibernia, although it is also possible to play alone.
Not everything will be fighting in this new title. The Ram From Hibernia also has lots of puzzles to solve, platforming areas, and even exploration missions. Throughout this new adventure, we will visit many iconic areas of Hibernia. There will be a total of six chapters, although the grace will be to repeat each level to get better scores and collectibles.
Classic but not outdated
With that we're not just talking about the entire franchise of Asterix & Obelix, we are also talking about the entire gameplay and game mechanics of Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia. This game resembles a lot of the old classics like Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, and it makes a lot of sense to see a game like those coming out in this day and age. After all, those two titles just got most of their franchises remade.
The classic adventure and exploration experience in Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia takes us back to simpler times, just like Asterix & Obelix usually do. This game is really fun and has quite enough content to be fun to play for a while, not to mention the multiplayer mechanics too.
