    Tangled Up In Blue is without a doubt one of the best Telltale Games episodes I have ever played.

    Guardians of the Galaxy is definitely starting off on the right foot, with a great script, great actors, and a universe packed with personality (and backed by catchy tunes) to explore. If it can continue to deliver the quality of dialogue and panel-perfect action over the course of the rest of the season, it may find itself seated in the upper echelons of Telltale’s catalog. I just hope that now the series has introduced itself, the series gives its environments and characters just a bit more time to breathe in between speeding the plot along.

    The first chapter's conflicts and outcomes may be conventional, but so were the the ones in the weird comic books my best friend's older brother stored in bread bags, which we'd read as fast as we could before he got home from football practice to terrify us. The feeling of wanting to read the next issue is just the same, too.

    After the kind of bonding experience only fighting a genocidal maniac can achieve, not being able to make everyone happy is a little heart-wrenching.

    Just like any other Telltale game, Guardians of the Galaxy is a great adaptation. It suffers from some minor technical and gameplay issues, but strong story, high replay value, and marvelous sound design and music easily overcome those shortcomings.

    An interesting prologue filled with action, jokes and our favourite team of former outlaws, but the "more of the same" feeling that the gameplay gives you is stronger than ever.

    Despite [North's] efforts, a couple of big laughs (the world's slowest lift; Drax's sincere literalism) and at least one genuine surprise, you're left with a gnawing sensation that Telltale's formula is becoming as creaky as its engine. And that's a feeling on which you're unlikely to get hooked. [July 2017, p.120]

    The game offers a fun, enjoyable experience which for me lasted roughly around 2 hours. The voice acting is very impressive especially Nolan North as Rocket and Emily O'Brien as Gamora. The game offers just the right amount of seriousness and comedy. I loved the dialogue choices and was really impressed by the fighting sequences. I really enjoyed playing the episode and didn't want it to end.

    I'm looking forward to the next episode, Telltale you really have outdone yourself this time.

    Episode 1 offers a lot of space to the increase of the quality.
    Up to now one does not know so surely where the story, however, it leads there sounds interesting.
    Hence, wait like themselves for everything develops.

I actually wouldn't call it much of a game more than an interactive storybook. But the story is spot on, with great suprises. The voice acting is top notch. It's a faithful recreation of The Gaurdians of the Galaxy, with it's own unique story. For any true Marvel fan, this is a must buy. Can't wait for episode two!! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It was fun to coach play with my 4 friends. Some of the choices were fun (like whom to give Thanos' body). And it was fun to check that our play group made all the choices really different to majority of players. However, the story seemed too familiar to be interesting. And the game felt so slow. Expand

The game does not capture the spirit of the movies at all (partly because the characters are so different), and mechanics that were ok in Batman are just purely annoying here (hard to solve puzzles that aren't hard because they require smarts but because they are obnoxious) Expand
