Atari - «Asterix XXL 2 Mission Wifix» 2006

A precursor among the world of video games, Asterix - using since the early eighties this wonderful technology that enables us to use joysticks to whomp Roman legions on all kinds of platforms - is making an explosive entry into the world of the PSP and the NDS. Obelix is delighted: Thanks to the stylus on one system and the extra multiplayer modes on the other, he has discovered that once again, the Indomitable Gauls have invented new ways of thoroughly trumping the Romans!


And this time there's really something to write home about! The Gaulish Village doesn't know where to turn: several druids have disappeared and the clues seem to place Getafix at the heart of the mystery... Asterix and Obelix must take to the road. Their destination? Nothing less than the heart of the Empire, where they will discover to their amazement Caesar's new megalomaniacal project: LAS VEGUM, a theme park dedicated to games…and to the history of the biggest games of all!



With armies made up of caricatures of the greatest icons in the video game world and graphic references to the world of video games from its beginnings to today, Mission Wifix is a paragon of parody.

So has Getafix betrayed the Village? Will Obelix manage to resist all these funny-looking new enemies? Will Asterix like this sort-of amusement park, located in the suburbs of Rome, where Caesar is trying to lure him? The answers are all in the game, and what a game it is - a real technical, graphic and visual treat!
