Description

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy for PC is a single player, narrative driven, episodic game with a fairly linear premise. It is strongly mission based, and the story is loosely based on the comic book series of the same name. There are movies in the franchise which use the same characters as are featured in the game and the original comics.

About the Game


The basic premise of this game is that the team of characters must find the Eternity Forge, an artefact of great power. The antagonist is Kree Hala the Accuser, who wants it herself. The player plays primarily as Star-Lord, but will occasionally play as the others in the many flashbacks that flesh out the team dynamic and provides characters’ backstories. The humour that made the movies so popular is here too, and carries across well.

Just as in the movie and the comics, music is important. All the backing tracks to the game are all belters from the 70s and 80s. This is a major connection between Peter (Star-Lord and his past, his childhood and the now mostly defunct Earth. On occasion, you get to choose the background track to inspire the team to a greater effort against the villains.

The five episodes that comprise the game (see more about this below) play out with plenty of cliff-hanger ups and downs, with a story arc to follow and important player choices to be made. Players can make good choices or bad one, depending on your preferences, and these actions will have sometimes unexpected future consequences.

The characters on the Milano are all likeable and distinctive: there is Star-Lord, who is cocky, brash, optimistic; Gamora, a world weary cynical warrior; Drax who typifies ‘all brawn and no brain’; Rocket is a sardonic modified raccoon with a dark backstory and Groot is a humanoid tree.

Nebula and Mantis are not Guardians, per se, but they show up along the way too to help out and hinder as the story demands.

The Nitty Gritty


The game is strongly team based, with all the characters needed for true success in any scenario. Your AI-controlled fellow Guardians are more than up to the task and ‘remember’ your previous choices and instructions extrapolating them forward, so it really feels as though they are working with you, rather than waiting to be told what to do.

Along with this, the characters still have their own unique personalities – for example, Drax takes on too many enemies at once, while Gamora is more cautious. Star-Lord loves to shoot, and this can be teamed with jumping, dodging, trying out new moves that you’ve just unlocked, and executing melee strikes. It is up to you to set the team members tasks that they will cope with well.

The enemies’ health bars can be seen at all times, letting you know if you need all your strength, or just one or two more shots to finish them off which can be useful when you are unsure of whether to press on or fall back to recuperate and regroup.

Fill your XP bar to unlock unique abilities. You can inspire your team to success by choosing the right inspirational speech or background track. This does more than just make them feel good, it actually gives them boosts and abilities they wouldn’t otherwise have. You can also do things like letting Drax throw Rocket over a ravine to make a bridge quickly – but Rocket might not be so willing to help next time!

Five Episodes to Play Through


There are five ‘episodes’ in the game’s story arc, each developing the story along and all are song titles, for those who recognise their late 70s/ early 80s music.

    Really fun and enjoyable game. Bought it after watching GOTG 3 and the game proved more enjoyable than the film. It was a breath of fresh air and it captured the magic of the GOTG movies and put its own spin into it. If you like the movies, the game is a must buy. Great jokes, cool gameplay, interesting story, compelling characters all blended together to make the perfect GOTG game!

    • a tad bit repetitive combat, but the story makes up 4 it
    Really great game. Fun combat, really colorful and unique worlds. A bit linear and restrictive from a design perspective, and the combat gets tiresome halfway through, but the wild narrative keeps you hooked.
    Really an awesome game. I played on pc and was really great. Also you can feel the vibe of this guardians of galaxy movies.

    Also the game story is pretty solid and funny one.

    I'm review I would give this game 8 in 1/10.

    • Very funny and good. Gameplay
    Wow, this game is totally awesome! Memorable characters, fantastic story, great graphics and enjoyable gameplay. I really hope they make a 2nd one.

    Awesome game, especially if you're a Marvel fan.

    I went into this with extremely low expectations because I wanted to avoid playing another Marvel's Avengers. The game was however worth every penny. Strongly recommended <3

    Amazing game, it is game of the year for a reason. You can clearly see the development on characters and them as a team. Costumes look really good and you can play with them whole game without getting bored of them, i would reccomend this game to any super hero fan and really hope there will be sequel.
    • Great Story
    • Amazing feeling in gameplay

    This game was a complete surprise after Marvel's Avengers. Don't let that game stop you purchasing this one! The facial animations and graphics are some of the best I've seen to date! Gameplay was fun and story was very well written! An absolute joy!

    I gave this site a try and I got my code for the game right after I clicked buy and that is awesome. Saved 11 dollars over direct and cheaper than all other sites on line. I had no trouble retrieving the code and it appeared right after the payment processed instantly.
