    Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is for the most part a very enjoyable experience. A pure singleplayer title with a beefy campaign (at least 15-20 hours), smart and quality writing, great presentation and faithfulness to the universe it translates to game form.

    Guardians of the Galaxy is a solid single-player game with a strong story, the combat however is in desperate need of more fine-tuning.

    The plot meanders and the game is somewhat too long, but it's still a great time and well worth experiencing for Guardians fans.

    Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is a highly enjoyable action/adventure romp that never strays from the beaten path. You won't find any major experiments or innovations here, but you will experience a great adaptation of the beloved dysfunctional team of galactic superheroes. The story and characters are well written, the combat is fun (if perhaps a bit too easy), and the audio is excellent.

    With its endearing characters and effective humor, Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the pleasant surprises of the end of the year, which is obviously aimed at a very large audience. Behind this careful writing, we feel a deep love on the part of the developers of Eidos Montreal for its marginalized space. And if the adventure is not as epic as we hoped, the journey is nonetheless pleasant with its moments of complicity and the many choices offered which reinforce the player's involvement. A truly attractive journey, in particular thanks to an efficient and fluid combat system which nevertheless shows its limits at the end of the game and against the bosses. Finally, it is more on its visual part that the title can divide. If we find on the one hand original environments and neat character models, we also note the presence of less convincing facial animations in places and sometimes less fine landscapes. It is nonetheless a gripping adventure alongside the galaxy's greatest magnificent losers that has plenty to please MCU fans.

    More than a mainstream game for fans, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is a real hit that wasn't expected. Of course, being a fan of Star Lord and Rocket's humour will help you enjoy the game, but the single-player adventure offered by Eidos Montreal can suit anyone who likes the genre. A successful art direction, a pleasing energy, omnipresent dialogues and music plus dynamic fights make this new title an explosive condensation of good things succeeding in making us forget the few negative points such as a certain slowness in some chapters and the impossibility to embody the other guardians.

    For superhero games in particular, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is a breath of fresh air that demonstrates just how much fun, and how innovative, single-player games remain.

    You just feel like this game was made with a soul, unlike the Avengers of the usual soulless garbage.

    Game play is actually really quite fun! The reason for my low rating is the inexcusable bug that prevents my Xbox Core Wireless ControllerGame play is actually really quite fun! The reason for my low rating is the inexcusable bug that prevents my Xbox Core Wireless Controller from working in wireless Bluetooth mode. When connected via a USB-C cable it functions perfectly. I didn't pay $54+ dollars for a genuine Microsoft wireless controller to have it only work in wired mode! This is on the developers. You mean to tell me they didn't know about this bug when the game was released? I find that extremely difficult to believe. Glad I didn't actually pay full price for the game since it was offered on the MS "Game Pass" service. Expand
