After I replayed the first episode on a different path and continued to the second episode I was hooked and the game became really immersive.
The story feels authentic, fresh and original, with a sense of mystery, humor and adventure. I loved the ancient alien temples and locations, somehow they felt very real. I began to care about the characters. By the 2nd episode I really felt at home on this ship and enjoyed being with this colorful bunch of characters, learning more about their personal struggles and living the adventure.
Can’t wait to play the next episode!
Groot says: “I am GROOOOT!”
I really had a good time playing this. Thank you Telltale.
How does Guardians of the Galaxy fare?
I had fun when playing this game. The main menu already sets the mood with the song "Livin’ Thing" by Electric Light Orchestra. You cannot go wrong with the ’80s. Never.
I think most people know what to expect from Telltale by now, and once again they have stuck pretty close to their established formula. A strong focus on story, with gameplay consisting of making dialogue choices during conversations with other characters, and QTE based action sequences.
•The Guardians of the Galaxy are (in my opinion) Marvel’s most interesting characters, and this game allows you to go on a really entertaining 8 hour adventure with them.
•Each character’s personality is the same as the films. They all talk and behave like you’d expect them to.
•The story is pretty good, as the Guardians once again find themselves taking on a powerful adversary who threatens the safety of the galaxy. But my favourite moments of the game are the interactions between our heroes.
•This is the best comedy game I’ve played since Tales From The Borderlands. There are so many laugh out loud moments, especially involving Groot and Drax.
•Most characters have some interesting flashbacks which add a bit more detail to their past, including Peter Quill and his mum, Gamora with Nebula and Thanos, Drax and his family.
•Voice acting is fantastic. The whole cast do a great job, but I want to give special mention to Nolan North as Rocket, who sounds almost exactly like Bradley Cooper.
•The soundtrack, in the form of Peter’s “rad mix”, has a similar feel good 70’s/80’s theme as the films’ “awesome mix”.
•Compared to Telltale’s recent games, GotG gives the player more opportunity to wander around the environments, talk with the rest of the team at your own pace and do some light puzzle solving.
•You mostly control Peter during dialogue scenes, but you control all the Guardians during the QTE combat scenes.
•I Am Groot 🙂
•Drax’s and Star Lord’s appearances are quite different to the films, which initially feels a bit wierd. Drax needed a few more tattoos, and Star Lord needed some facial hair to make him look a bit more like Chris Pratt. (Thankfully every other character is spot on).
•Those environments you can wander around are a bit small, so I’d like to see those expanded in Telltale’s future games.
•I still want Telltale to put in more effort to implement a truly branching narrative structure with their games. By the time I get to episode 5, I want to be going to different locations and dealing with different characters, compared to another player who made different choices along the way.
Guardians of the Galaxy is a really good game, easily Telltale’s best work since Tales From The Borderlands (better than Game of Thrones, Michonne, Batman season 1 and Walking Dead New Frontier). Your enjoyment will probably depend on how much you like the Guardians of the Galaxy, but this is a must buy for any fan of the films.
This game was a hell of a ride, I wasn’t big into superheroes until recently and Telltale really helped me love the Guardians and Batman through their games.
This is a game about your family, in this case (members of the ‘Guardians’).
It puts choices in your face that you struggle with because you want to make everyone happy (unless you’re ♥♥♥♥ed in the head) but you will obviously end up hurting someone no matter what you do, how you hurt them can either not matter or come up later in the future episodes.
Based on your choices they gave you different scenes in each of the episodes, which I loved. The story obviously ended up following one main plot, but it involved your choices really well unlike some of the other telltale games. I might just say this game has the most impacting choices from any game telltale ever made.
This game was very underrated, I usually like watching youtubers play telltale games to see what they would have chosen but many didn’t play this because they don’t know how good this game is. I loved it and it even got me to love 20th century music which I wasn’t that into before this game.
Only disappointment was I expected more than one new song in episode 5, but ah well, it’ll do.
If you don’t have the game yet then what are you waiting for?
After TWD, I was ready to pack it in for Telltale but this has made me change my mind. If you’re thinking about picking this up, do it, it’s refreshing to see Telltale bring this up to the standard of Wolf Among Us and the first two TWD seasons.
Plus, ELO on the main menu? 10/10
