    Telltale's version of Guardians of the Galaxy may not have made the best first impression upon debut, but towards the end of the season the story had finally managed to get going in a positive way. While it may have been too little too late, the ramifications it has for a potential season two should be reason enough to get into this season. The decision-making was extremely one-sided and lacked any sense of moral urgency and quandaries. While it still suffers from the same clunky control scheme, the character development between each of the Guardians is a fascinating rollercoaster to experience. In addition, battling Thanos was a terrific way to open up the series. Moreover, the soundtrack greatly helps in setting the tone and furthering the adventure with its catchy tunes.

    Lately Telltales Adventures keep losing me. Batman left me unphased and even though I like Starlord, Rocket and Groot it seems to me that Telltale lost their mojo. This is mediocrity I didn’t expect.

    There are points where Guardians of the Galaxy is barely playable because of how terrible the engine is. Yes, the story at least has some heart to it, and at key points your decisions feel like they matter. But it mostly feels like Telltale was creatively backed into a corner with this property full of oddball characters, and the end result is far from the studio’s best work.

    As always, the problem with Telltale's limited gameplay and choose-your-own-adventure formula is that the game can really only be as good as its story. Guardians of the Galaxy proves to be one of their weaker games, as it struggles to find its own voice within the obvious movie-based restrictions. Even though its uninspired and somewhat dull take on the franchise, it still manages to fit in enough funny and touching moments to make the series fun to play. Telltale has certainly done worse (I'm looking at you, post-Season 1 The Walking Dead), but they've also done a lot better. If you're even the slightest bit burnt out on Telltale or Marvel, this game will do you no favors.

    As someone who instantly fell in love with The Guardians of the Galaxy when it was released in theaters, I was ecstatic when I was providedAs someone who instantly fell in love with The Guardians of the Galaxy when it was released in theaters, I was ecstatic when I was provided the full season of the Telltale game. I’ve loved every release of theirs since the point-and-click light adventure games. I assumed based off of the material and Telltale’s history with the genre would be a match made in heaven. Sadly, I was a bit mistaken.

    Following the same group of characters from the films, omitting the rotating cast of anti-heroes from the comics, the game focuses on what is arguably the best family in Marvel Comic history. While not blood related, The Guardians are like the island of misfit toys. No one wants them individually, but as a team they are a perfect example of a dysfunctional family that still cares for each other unconditionally. This is reflected flawlessly by Telltale and is a very emotional tale, even though a number of parts don’t work out well.

    I won’t touch on the story much, since that is the bread and butter that the Telltale games have to offer. While the writing is stellar, the voice acting for most of the characters is a bit dull. With the exception of Nolan North (the Uncharted Series, pretty much any game released since voice acting was a thing) as Rocket Raccoon, most of the main cast sounds bored or is trying too hard to mimic the film actors’ style. While most of these are forgivable, Star Lord’s voice made me want to gouge my ears out with a spork.

    The game spotlights character backstories that were only touched on verbally in the films, which really helps develop your understanding of the characters – particularly with Drax and Rocket Raccoon. Groot is sadly sidelined for most of the game, aside from when he needs to chime in with his signature line or when his powers suit the need of the team.

    Like most of the recent offerings from Telltale, they have incorporated a few new mechanics during exploration. You can now check in during many segments via radio with the other team members. This works on many levels, not only to promote the family aspect between them, but they often provide hints or additional information for those who are unfamiliar with the characters. In addition to the radio, Starlord can use his rocket propelled boots to hover and reach areas that would normally be blocked off in other Telltale games. It’s not game changing, but it does break up the occasional monotony of wandering around interacting with objects.

    This game proves that Telltale is honing in their visual style to near perfection. While the most recent Walking Dead season featured a number of visual bugs that plagued the game, this entry was near flawless in the visual department. There was some occasional clipping, but I rarely lost immersion because of it.

    Sure, the story was not nearly as engrossing as I was hoping for, and the voice acting was less than awe inspiring, meaning this is not the best Telltale game nor Guardians of the Galaxy experience to behold; but it is a worthwhile experience if you are a fan of either.

The story is mostlyNot the best story, and glitches had happened in the game as well. Had to restart part of a episode to fix a scene once. The story is mostly good, and episodes were interesting and fun at times, but sometimes it was harder to enjoy. It isn’t the best Telltale game, but the story was very fun at times, and the Guardians are enjoyable. Recommend this to fans of Telltale. Expand
