Sixth game down. The Friday game. 1/23/09
Asterix at the Olympic Games: I went into this game blindfolded. I had no prior knowledge to what genre it even was. When I got the game in the mail on Thursday I looked at the box and immediately passed judgment. I thought I was in for a real turd of a game. I was wrong and it turned out to be better than I expected. It's an action adventure platform game to begin with. A decent one at that, not visually, but the controls and camera never hinder your experience. It does have some track & field elements similar to what you would find in the old NES Track & Field game, but for the most part they are not fun. All in all I had a good time with this. Fun and 1,000 gamerscore points in around 5 hours. It's much better than games like Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal. The game is a big joke, it doesn't take itself too serious. It has a really good sense of humor. That's ultimately why I enjoyed my time with it.
If you are wondering, Asterix is a region free game that can be played on your American xbox 360. It just happens that it was not released in the United States, so you might have a hard time tracking it down. Good hunting.
