Asterix: Operation Getafix
Review 1:
Asterix has always been one of my favorite characters. I simply enjoyed
every comic book I read and each cartoon I watched. There was one episode
in which Obelix hit druid Getafix with a huge menhir that made the poor
druid lose his mind. This game covers that episode. You, as Asterix, have
to cure Getafix so he can resume making the Magic potion that keeps Roman
soldiers away from the village. Will you succeed?

Review 2:

One of the most obscure Coktel Vision games ever, Asterix: Operation
Getafix is a decent action/adventure similar to Infogrames' Tintin games,
starring one of France's best-known comic book character. The plot is as
wacky as a real Asterix episode: Getafix, the Gaul's resident druid, has
fallen victim to lunacy, thanks to Obelix who accidentally threw a menhir
on his head. Getafix is the only one who can make the beverage which
could cure him, but he cannot ever remember his own name. Worse than
that, he no longer knows how to make the magic potion that gives
superhuman strength to the Gauls. Without it, they would definitely be
defeated by the Romans who are a hundred times as many and much better
armed. It's therefore up to you, as Asterix, to find the ingredients that
will help Getafix recover. Gameplay follows for the most part a typical
platform formula: fight the Romans and hunt the wild boars, etc. But as
with most Coktel games, Asterix also contains non-action sequences, such
as the fun part where you mix the ingredients and test the potion on
either Getafix or a captive Roman, and dice game you can play against the
soothsayer or Romans in the camp. The money you win from the game is
necessary to buy items and potion ingredients. For all the non-action
parts that add variety to the game, the novelty wears out pretty quickly.
By the time you meet a twentieth boar or Roman, it all gets very tiring,
and you won't feel the urge to find that last ingredient. If you're a fan
of the comic, you might find the game enjoyable. For others, it's just
another standard platform game with little variation. Infogrames does it
much better with Tintin games.

Review 3:

Based on the popular comic book series of the same game, you play the
super-strong Asterix - saviour of the Gauls and scourge of the Roman
Empire. Asterix owes his super strength to a special drink brewed by the
tribe's druid Getafix who has unfortuantely developed amnesia resulting
from a freak
giant-friggin-rock-hits-druid-in-the-head-and-causes-him-to-lose-his-memory
 accident. It is up to you to seek out and gather various ingredients in
the hope of finding a cure for Getafix. The game itself is a sort of
action-adventure mix... ok, more action than adventure but there is still
some adventure style probelm solving involved here. The game controls are
slightly ropey and not as repsonsive as i'd like them to be at times but
this doesn't detract from the game too much. One thing that did always
bring a smile to my face while playing this game were the animations.
From the rather amusing intro to what happens when Getafix tries out
another potion - they are all very nicely done :) Overall a chraming and
fun game, maybe one to let the young 'uns play. Review 4: Get Getafix
(Panoramix in the dutch comicbooks) his memory back, having a great
adventure. It's some platform based game with a real story.
