Asterix & Obelix Kick Buttix for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
Fans of French comic book heroes Asterix and Obelix can lead the dark age duo through level after level of fast-paced, Roman-pounding fun in this combat platformer by Etranges Libellules. In a style at least somewhat reminiscent of Omega Force's popular Dynasty Warriors games, the two Gaul heroes travel through various open environments teeming with enemy soldiers at nearly every turn, and they hack and slash their way toward mission points or map objectives. During combat, players control the diminutive Asterix, as his oversized companion Obelix follows closely behind. In the game's platform puzzle challenges, players may need to take control of each character in turn, to open a door or retrieve a prize through clever teamwork.
