It took me a little while to really warm up to this game. Since I like the movie a lot, I had to get used to the different looks and voices of the main characters a little bit, at first. Also the relatively limited freedom of movement in this style of game felt restrictive.

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!

What’s a Telltale game?

  • Telltale specialises in action-adventure video games. These adventure games rarely offer any inventories; the emphasis is on story immersion at all times instead of complex puzzle solving.
  • There are a lot of dialogues and action sequences. The former requires you to pick an option from the sentences offered while the latter engages you in a lot of QTEs (quick time events). Making mistakes during a QTE session does not automatically mean Game Over.
  • In select areas of the story we have to make a decision that will affect the rest of it. This often means siding with someone following an argument or deciding who to save. What we pick almost never pleases everyone – that is the very reason it’s usually worth completing the game for a 2nd time to see what option B has to offer. Additionally, after each episode we get a summary on our decisions relative to the gaming community.
  • While the decision making system is interesting it does not really significantly affect the outcome of the entire journey. Do not think this system is as deep as, let’s say, the one you find in a BioWare game.
  • Such a game usually comes in the form of 5 or so episodes. They are released periodically. This is a formula the developer has been using for several years now. Usually, just by doing a story walkthrough we can get all achievements in these games.

How does Guardians of the Galaxy fare?

  • It’s Telltale’s take on this Marvel franchise so consider it an interesting story with our favourite characters. Rocket is as sarcastic (and rude) as ever, Drax takes things in their literal sense (always), Gamora is lovely (and green) as usual and Groot is there to keep repeating "I am Groot". This is fan service done right: you’ll find a lot of familiar faces if you have already watched both Marvel films. Fun fact: stay after the end credits (as you would do the same in the film theater).
  • The story revolves around an artefact our heroes take from Thanos. Naturally, they put themselves first then the entire galaxy in jeopardy by not knowing what it is. Consequences become dire so much so that we (as Star-Lord) have to work not only on how to solve this global issue but to make sure the team doesn’t fall apart. I think the story is strong and interesting but previous Telltale games were better. Episode 3 and 4 are the rather weak parts that were, for me, a bit of a letdown. I liked the ending, though. They managed to say goodbye with a blast (pun intended).
  • QTEs are fairly easy. SHIFT+E and SHIFT+Q return – they were finishing moves in the Telltale Batman game. Here they are required when controlling Drax. With Star-Lord we often have to press the left and right mouse buttons in quick succession when using his blaster. Throughout the journey we mainly control Star-Lord but sometimes an action sequence wants us to do the right thing with the others, too. Some of these scenes are just excellent as moving from one member to the next you can clearly see they work as a team.
  • When going around to investigate in select areas we can use Peter’s jetpack to reach a higher floor. We can also radio in and have short discussions with the team members who we left behind on the ship. You might just need to speak with someone via radio to advance the story.
  • Telltale Tool: the engine is getting older and older. There are areas and effects that make us realise this. As much as Telltale kept on upgrading it with better textures and effects they really need to switch to something new.

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 am so happy to have experienced the grand story this game brings. I will deeply miss Telltale Games.

As a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, and Telltale’s adventure games, I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and I’m pleased to say its lived up to my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game from start to finish.

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 good
•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 🙂

The bad
•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.

Recommendation

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 review has been rewritten for episode 1-5.)

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?
Get it!

It’s fine, just another typical interactive game-movie from Telltale. It has good humor and a satisfying story. I didn’t like the low production quality, incredibly forced drama and partially inconsistent writing, but all-in-all it’s fine. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1530027100 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1466641343 Unlocked all achievements!

Not for everyone, the "action" scenes are nothing more than glorified QTE’s. This is above all a point and click adventure, and a good one, not the best of it’s genre but not the worst either. Much like Tales from the Borderlands, you start to make meaningfull choices early on and your choices will affect the other characters, whic is made even harder if you have seen the movies or read the comics. I alos like the art style of this one, it’s more like an animated film than a comic book, mixes it up abit. Still, I wish this were a short film or mini series rather than a game, as most TellTale games feel. Get this only if you are patient enough to put up with it, and dont go in expecting it to be a third movie because you’ll be very disappointed. Oh, and TellTale, please get a new engine to run your games on, I am getting way to much stutter for my PC’s specs.

This is everything that TWD: Season 3 wasn’t. If Telltale keeps up like this and ditches the lazy, repetitive and forced gameplay from the TWD then they’re gonna be back on top.

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
